It's a bit difficult for me to write right now as my jaw has dropped right to the floor after I read this and I'm sitting here speechless!
I've been saying for years now that today's republicans are doing more damage to America than any Taliban/ISIS group could EVER accomplish.
The second Gov Abbott signed this bill, ALL Texan High School diplomas became utterly worthless. The only way that the better students will survive this debacle is when they somehow get into a real college and get at least a real Bachelor's (or Associate's) degree.
Republicans continue their attempt to sap the power and dignity from our women, our people of color, our poor, our disadvantaged, our elderly, our middle-class, our immigrants, our veterans, our voters, our teachers, our gov't workers, Democrats, non-christians, and Liberals/Progressives, etc, and now our high school students are being made worthless.
Here's a hard, cold fact, folks... India has more 'Honor Students' than America has Students!! We is screwed!!
There's a global race to the bottom and America has decided to win it!
There is NO foreign enemy of the United States that reins in as much destruction upon America and her people than the republicans!!
They have not only declared WAR on America's Women, her People of Color, and her Poor... now they gave declared war on ALL OF US!!
Future American historians will mark this day as the last day of greatness for our once great nation.
