Ryan Johnson of the Missouri Alliance for Freedom posted my article on Rep. Mike Lair’s appropriation of $8 in taxpayer money to buy tin foil hats for opponents of Common Core on Rep. Lair’s Facebook page.
Believe it or not, Lair and I are not Facebook friends. Go figure.
I don’t even think this would happen in student government association at a university, but it happened in your Missouri State House of Representatives. These kinds of games are beneath Rep. Mike Lair’s office. Inappropriate & insulating.
To that, Rep. Lair asked that he not be vilified for his vilification of concerned Missouri mothers and fathers.
You crazy conspiracy theorists!
Can’t you see?! Lair had a bill that “requires the State Board of Education to create rules to protect any student data that is gathered locally.”
And if you can’t trust the government in Missouri to protect your information, who can you trust?
I mean, it’s not like the federal government is going to come back and say, “Oh, by the way, if you want any money in the future, you’re going to have to turn over that data” or maybe pass a law that compels the surrender of the data.
That’s crazy talk, AMIRITE?
Plus, since we’ll have crack school board computer programmers on the job, it will be totally hacker proof, or something.
No, none of that is possible. Here’s your government funded tin foil hat, you conspiracy theorist.
Now, don’t vilify Rep. Lair. After all, he knows more than you. Plus, he’s from the government and he’s here to help.
