Louisiana Teacher Calls 12-Year-Old a Sassy Slut

Sassy Slut

The life sciences teacher at Evangel Christian Academy in Louisiana has been suspended after allegedly referring to a 12-year-old girl as a “sassy slut” during class.

The offending teacher was placed on six days’ paid administrative leave this week after the incident took place – which means a weeklong holiday for the sassy slut’s teacher!

The girl’s mother was horrified to hear about the inappropriate name calling as well as the lax punishment – especially since her daughter is well-mannered, polite, and has never had any past problems in school.

“I’m just still numb about what happened and the disciplinary action that the school had taken,” said the girl’s mother, Marteen Mitchell.

“I don’t think it was fair at all,” Mitchell said of the teacher’s suspension. “They initially told me that she would receive one day suspension with pay and when I made it back to my job, I received a call from the principal that stated that the situation was serious and they wanted me to know that they would give her five additional days.”

No word on what the pre-teen sassy slut was doing to warrant such a remark, but here’s a quick tip to the mother: stop sending your kid to a right wing Christian school if you don’t want her to be slut shamed. Slut shaming basically makes up half the curriculum in religious “life sciences” class!

A Date With Dynasty… And Other News

Duck Dynasty Date

Louisiana Representative Vance McAllister brought a special date to the State of the Union Address: Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson.

The long-bearded star of Duck Dynasty endorsed McAllister in a tough election last year and McAllister repaid the favour by escorting him to the President’s speech. But based on his father’s views on homosexuality, I’m guessing Willie didn’t put out – or at least publicly. McAllister said his “close friend” Robertson would bring “some diversity to our nation’s capital.” There were no other bearded duck hunters there? NY Post 

Uganda GayIn a very, very, minusculy small victory for gay rights in Africa, the president of Uganda announced he will not sign the new anti-gay bill, “nnless I have got confirmation from scientists that this condition is not genetic, but a behaviour that is acquired.” But despite President Yoweri Museveni’s refusal to sign, the prez is far from being a gay rights activist; he supports the bill’s imposition of lifetime prison sentences for those who “promote, abate, recruit and support homosexuality,” but is a little more hesitant when it comes to laws that seek “to punish homosexuals” just for being homosexual. The president has also said that gay people are “abnormal” and can be “cured” of their same-sex sexual desires. So if you are anti-gay in Uganda, you need to find a scientist/witch doctor who can “prove” gays are not born that way OR you need to find a scientist/witch doctor who can conjure up the cure for gayness.

HOLLANDE-TRIERWEILBackstabbing, betrayals, and berets. After French President Francois Hollande announced his 9-year relationship with Valerie Trierweiler was over amid rumors of Hollande’s affair with actress Julie Gayet, his scorned partner is speaking out. France’s former First Lady told French political reporters “We would still be together had he not become president” and “low blows”, “back-stabbing” and “betrayals” were to blame for the split. Juicy! Trierweiler, who started an affair with Mr Hollande in 2005 while he was still officially with Ségolène Royal, is now focusing on a new career as a humanitarian campaigner while Hollande is now focusing on French actresses and hopefully the European economy.

peter-schiffFinancial commentator Peter Schiff believes everyone has a price and “mentally retarded” people are worth about $2 an hour. The investment broker and talk radio host told Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee that increasing the minimum wage would have disastrous effects. Worried that the price of his hamburger would increase, Schiff claimed that paying workers twice as much would double the cost of some goods and destroy American jobs. “There’s a law in economics, supply and demand, that you learn in Econ 101, and if you increase the price of something, you decrease the demand,” Schiff said. “The higher you make the minimum wage, the more jobs are going to be destroyed.” Because of this, Schiff proposes eliminating the minimum wage altogether and allowing people to be paid what they’re worth. When asled to identify someone whose work might be worth just $2 an hour, Schiff responded with: “Maybe someone who is – what’s the politically correct word, you know, for mentally retarded.” Yikes, wrong answer on so many levels… “I’m not going to say that we’re all created equal,” Schiff continued “You’re worth what you’re worth.” Just like our forefathers always dreamed.

neanderthalThere’s a little Neanderthal in all of us, not just the ones who are worth $2 an hour. Two new studies studies published Wednesday in Science and Nature have traced the history of Neanderthal DNA and suggest that it’s still found in humans today. The DNA of Neanderthals, who became extinct about 30,000 years ago, still exists in several regions of the world and can make up as much as 4 percent of some people’s DNA. 4 percent isn’t very much, but there are some Neanderthal genes have become very common in non-Africans – mostly genes that make keratin, found in skin, hair, and nails.

Current Event Cat of the Day: Mother’s Day Parade

Current Event Cat - Mother's Day Parade

19 people were shot on Sunday during a Mother’s Day parade in New Orleans. Apparently the United States cannot go one week without a shooting or a bombing.

Three gunmen opened fire on hundreds of people during the second-line parade – an impromptu procession in which people dance behind the official Mother’s Day parade.

“Somebody in the crowd yelled ‘everybody get down’, so we did. We just hit the deck. We saw a lot of people diving to the ground,” said one witness. “We waited about 40 seconds and the firing had stopped. We thought: we’ve got to get out of here.”

Although no fatalities occurred, four people were rushed to surgery and three are reportedly in critical conditions. The victims included two 10-year-old children who were grazed by bullets.

The incident occurred in the 7th Ward, a poor neighbourhood not far from the French Quarter that is still recovering from the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Police are searching for three suspects who were spotted fleeing the Mother’s Day parade scene. Their motive is unknown – perhaps it is gang-related or perhaps they just really hated Mother’s Day. What is known, however, is that this was not an act of terrorism – it was strictly an act of street violence, according to the FBI. And if there’s one thing New Orleans knows well (aside from Jazz, drinking, and seafood), it’s street crime.

Show Gun, Get Free Fried Chicken… And Other News

Free Fried Chicken

How far would you go to get some free fried chicken? A Louisiana fried chicken joint offered free fried chicken to customers who brought their guns in with them.

The Bossier City restaurant offered free #1 combo meals on Saturday for concealed handgun permit holders. Chicken Express owner Randal Neel says they’ve had a positive response to the free fried chicken deal and it was the busiest Saturday he’s ever had. Neel says it’s his way of taking a stand as a gun rights advocate and making a statement as the Louisiana legislature prepared to take up several gun regulation proposals. “It feels really good to be able to stand up for what you believe in.” KSLA

Boston MarathonNot exactly the bucket of Gatorade you were hoping for at the end of a marathon. Two explosions went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, leaving an unknown number of spectators injured. Video footage of the race showed a cloud of white smoke near the finish line and screams from the spectators. Runners were re-directed and the bomb squad came in to do their thing. Not much information on culprit(s) yet. NBC News

Happy Birthday KimHappy Birthday Kim Il-sung! North Korea celebrates the 101st anniversary of the birth of its founding father Kim Il-sung. Kim Jong-un visited the mausoleum of his grandfather and his father Kim jong-il in Pyongyang. How did the rest of North Korea celebrate?

And how did South Korea celebrate? By suspiciously peering over the border and remaining on high alert. BBC News

Masters CatWinning takes care of everything! Australian Adam Scott won the Masters golf tournament in a sudden death putt-off, which I presume is the most exciting thing that could happen in a golf game. Scott defeated Angel Carbrera, becoming the first Australian to win the tournament. Fun Fact: Scott won with the help of Steve Williams, the caddy Tiger Woods fired in 2011. Tiger tied for fourth. Washington Post

Gitmo is Killing MeGitmo is Killing Me! Well, that or the hunger strike. An inmate detained at Guantanamo Bay gave a graphic account of his participation in a hunger strike at the US-run military prison. Samir Naji al Hasan Moqbel has been detained for 11 years and three months and has been fasting since February 10. In an op-ed published in the New York Times entitled “Gitmo Is Killing Me,” he writes: “I will never forget the first time they passed the feeding tube up my nose. I wanted to vomit, but I couldn’t. There was agony in my chest, throat and stomach. I had never experienced such pain before. I would not wish this cruel punishment upon anyone.” FYI, this is how foie gras is made (but with ducks, not prisoners). New York Times

MaduroThe Venezuela election results are in and they’re already being contested. Nicolas Maduro, Hugo Chavez’s hand picked successor, won by a thin margin, 50.7% to 49.1% for Henrique Caprilles. Caprilles, however, wasn’t too pleased. The opposition leader has demanded the National Electorial Council not to proclaim Maduro as the country’s new president until an electoral audit has been performed. “We are not going to recognize the results until each vote of the Venezuelan people is counted, one by one,” said Capriles. He also urged national protests and a march in Caracas. What a sore loser. Washington Post
