    I weep for the teachers!

  2. escribacat says:

    Aren’t these the folks who want to require you to take an English test before you can vote?

    • SueInCa says:

      One and the same, apparently Tancredo cannot read or see properly or he never would have said that. Stupid Stupid Man

    • boomer1949 says:

      e’cat,

      Sure, but not only do they blame the student/voter, they blame the teacher. Thus relieving themselves of any responsibility of the base being unable to spell. :roll:

  3. Khirad says:

    Every time I see that ‘English’ sign, it’s not the homonym confusion, but the placement of the hyphen, that truly puzzles me.

    • choicelady says:

      It’s the quick fix for someone who got distracted (someone probably brought out the long necks)but could not quite get back to the point of the sign. Or someone fixed it for someone else.

      Probably best not to ponder it all too long. You’ll get a headache.

    • kesmarn says:

      Due to their usual lack of foresight, they smashed too many letters into one line. So to avoid head-scratching at the word “ARECOUNTRY,” they stuck a (-) in there. That’s my best guess, Khirad!

    • escribacat says:

      😆 That’s the kind of thing that drives me CRAZY!!

    • LiseLives says:

      OMG, hadn’t noticed that -- that’s just plain weird ….

  4. Questinia says:

    Unfortunately, you don’t have to spell right to vote rong.

  5. Kalima says:

    😆 K, you found a treasure trove of ignorance on a single page.

    Apart from the more than 80% of pure racism there, my personal favourites were.

    “This is America and our only lanoguage is English.” Does this rhyme with tango?

    “Thank you Fox- news for keeping us infromed.” Great job there Murdoch!

    “Obama commaner in Theif.” This person must have been short tongued.

    “English is our language. No excetion. Learn it.” 😯

    And for all of us married folks, are we missing something, I can’t remember hearing it in my vows, can you?

    “Preserve the sactity of marriage.”

    I feel much better about myself now and my English bloopers. :)

    • LiseLives says:

      LOL !! Maybe the last one was referring to the sac.titty of marriage, but trying to do it a bit more politely ?
      :mrgreen:

      • Kalima says:

        😆 Which reminds me. One saggy boob said to the other saggy boob:

        ‘If we don’t get some support soon, people will think we’re nuts..’

        • javaz says:

          😆 Good one, Kalima! 😆

          • Kalima says:

            Evening javaz, are you ok, sorry I missed about your today. Nasty time zones!

            • javaz says:

              Yes, Kalima, is everything is fine, thank you for asking!

              Am heading off to bed though as I’m starting to fade and looking forward to an uninterrupted good night’s sleep!

              Hope to see you tomorrow and hope you have a wonderful day.

            • Kalima says:

              Sleep well then and take care.

              See you later.

        • LiseLives says:

          :rofl: -- thank god we can be a bit trashy here, yes ?
          I like laughing & that stuff makes me laugh 😀

          • boomer1949 says:

            Lise,

            The great leader guy is quite flexible and the rules of the road are pretty succinct. As long as you make a valid argument or point and don’t throw poop at someone, you’re good.

            We attempt to be mature, but sometimes lose it (hilariously of course). What is most inspiring however, is the respect and acceptance; uplifting and far from crass or derogatory. Actually Lise, we all seem to like each other — go figure. Hang around -- you’ll like it here. It’s like being in the mountains and breathing fresh air!

            • LiseLives says:

              Thanks Boomer, I appreciate it. Some people I already know from Huff & I’m sure I’ll like the people I don’t know yet 😉

          • Kalima says:

            Me too Lise, I’m hopeless. :)

            • LiseLives says:

              BTW -- Hi, Kalima !!

              Good, so I have Carte Blanche to talk naughty once in a while (without being nasty, of course) :mrgreen:

            • Kalima says:

              Laughmates then, as opposed to soulmates. :)

            • LiseLives says:

              Total, emphatic ditto on your comment (below) Kalima.
              Laughter is impt. therapy & I too, make sure I find (genuine) ways to do it daily --

            • Kalima says:

              Hello again Lise, great to see you back here.

              As long as we don’t wander into the nearby fields, we’re good here. Laughing is much better than medication sometimes. I strive to do it many times a day. :)

  6. whatsthatsound says:

    They are right! Socilism is one of the greatest evils to ever plague mankind. Every war in history began with a bunch of socilists getting together and socilating! They, and their partners in atrocity, the oculists, are dead set on destroying this country, and the Teabaggers are the only ones with the guts to put it out there, on signs. Will we listen?
    Soculists and oculists are bringing on the Apoculipse!

  7. LiseLives says:

    O/T apologies --
    From a poster at Huff re : Catholic Church outrages :

    As the old saying goes, “Abstinence makes the church grow fondlers”.

  8. Chernynkaya says:

    Know what a Teabagger says when he meets another one?

    Nice tooth.

  9. LiseLives says:

    LOL -- Ohhhhh, those photos are hilarious !!
    Do they, I mean really now, do they do it on PURPOSE ??

    How can anyone ….100% without fail, keep spelling their (dumbdumb) message wrong ? 😮
    I mean, you’re trying to make a statement about ‘speaking English’ & ya can’t even spell your idiot message correctly ??? LOL !

    • boomer1949 says:

      LiseL,

      The children? They’re the innocents. And no, they don’t do it on purpose.

      As a parent of a veteran Kindergarten educator, it’s not the children, it’s the parental units (aka SNL without the pointy heads). The kids in the classroom function only as well as the teachers and parents communicate with one another. The educators can send home so many notes, leave so many voice messages, and send so many emails. If the parents don’t reply or show up for conferences, what’s a teacher to do? What’s an educator to do? Wait for the other shoe to drop, or until the government or organization accuses them of not doing their jobs?

      I’ve been with my kid, who loves her kids, during a breakdown, when a parent was too drugged up or video-gamed out to be responsible enough to send 5,6,7 kids to school; none of whom had had breakfast, much less dinner the night before. The oldest, age 11 at the time, was in charge (solely in charge) while Mom & Dad slept it off from the night before.

      Why should my kid have to go to therapy because she cares more than the parents of her students? Yet, when the student fails it’s the fault of the educator. Where does parental responsibility come into play?

      Yet Lise…if my kid failed to report this shit, she could lose her teaching license (it’s the law), but Children Services returned 7 neglected/abused kids to their druggie parents — nothing has changed.

      My daughter had to go to therapy because she cared more than the parents of her students. What’s wrong with this picture?

      As AdLib so eloquently pointed out earlier

      • LiseLives says:

        Oh now that’s a whole other topic & I agree --
        I’m just referring to the grown adults in the pictures above -- & yes, the more serious question is : what if they’re parents & they pass their lax educational standards onto their kids ?
        That’s a sad thing indeed, for the kids & very frustrating for hard-working teachers --

        • boomer1949 says:

          But see? This is the case. What’s even more infuriating is the GOP, the Tea Party People, and vise-a-vi the parents, exploiting little kids…5 and 6 year olds! Makes me want to puke — sorry throw-up didn’t seem quite as effective. What parent, in his/her right mind, would want to screw their own kid for God’s sake?

          Lise, nada personal, just been to therapy with the teacher kid who cares more than the parents, but gets blamed for parental failure to engage.

          • LiseLives says:

            I completely understand --
            The parents are so ignorant that they just don’t realize how they’re spelling the fate of their own kids --

            & the onus (wrongly) often lands on the teachers ….

    • KQ says:

      Great to see your moniker LL.

      I would understand a few misspelled signs, especially considering our educational system, but dozens of misspelled signs and misspelled signs by mayors, huh? That’s just shows how poorly educated too many people are in this country.

  10. choicelady says:

    OK -- now I know for sure (fer shur) that these are the SAME people who picket women’s clinics. One had a hand-lettered sign that read:

    “SAVE Babys Life’s !!!”

    Another had one that said:

    “Stop Fonication! Death! AIDS! Sex! Your choice!”

    (We voted for Sex…)

    One rocket scientist carried a pre-printed sign for about 30 minutes, holding it upside down. When I took pity and told him, he did not believe me because, looking down, it looked fine to him.

    Can’t fix stupid.

  11. msbadger says:

    It are gittin harder! Ovah on tat ohter site we has to mispel everthing to kepe the modratars form skurbing us!

    Seriously, this is really scary…. the lowest common denominator is getting pretty damned low! Thanks for the laughs, and I will propagate “Teabonics” every chance I get! LOLs!

    • LiseLives says:

      LOL -- Hey, you !!! Here you are :)

    • boomer1949 says:

      MsB,

      God Bless ya’ teacher person!

      Firstly (yes, I know it’s not a word), I mentioned to KQ earlier that these are the parents of the No Child Left Behind kiddos.

      If it means an ounce of anything, my daughter’s Kindergarten class can spell better, articulate better, and can write complete sentences better. Actually their signs would make much more sense. And the parents are the GOP base.

      That said, btw, her Master’s is Early Childhood Education LITERACY-Based. Unfortunately, and without parental involvement, these dear sweet kids are doomed.

      It’s no wonder the educators feel like they are fighting a losing battle.

  12. KQ says:

    Don’t for get to check the link at the bottom of the post. There are many other hilarious images like this one.

  13. nottoolate says:

    Aaaargh. The pain! The pain! I was an English literature major, then an English teacher, then an editor and a proofreader. This shit with the misspelled words on Teaboner signs was amusing the first few times, then not so much, and now it is like molten shards of glass in my eyes. Yesterday I made the mistake of reading one of those horrid personal diaries on Kos that made me suspect the writer’s bona fides, so I checked her previous posts and found reference to Shakespeare’s “racist novel the merchant of venice.” Jesus wept.

  14. SueInCa says:

    Well, I guess Tancredo was right then, he just got the wrong voters:

    “People who could not even spell the word ‘vote’ or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House,” Tancredo said during a speech, according to the Cleveland Leader.

    Tancredo also said Obama won because “we do not have a civics, literacy test before people can vote.”

    • Chernynkaya says:

      Geez, that’s a great point! That is just too perfect.

      So the other night, Mr Cher and I were eating at out favorite BBQ place-- Dr. Hogley Wogley’s Tyler Texas BBQ. He said,
      “Wow, these ribs are really good.”

      And I replied, “Yeah, aren’t it?” It just came out like that!

      He put down his rib and started laughing, “Gee, one bite of Texas ribs and already she’s talking like an illiterate!”

      From now on, when I say something stupid like that, we will call it Teabonics.
