I dont purposefully watch Bravos ‘Real Housewives‘ series.
I mean, if its on, I leave it on as background noise, I dont actively turn it off, umm…
*looks shadily back and forth*
Anyway, theyve got the series in Orange County, New Jersey, New York City, Atlanta– I think they should do a version in OKC.
You might think, “What the hell? There is a rich-people-party-scene in OKC? ‘Make it rain’ steaks and corn husks?”
Dont be so judgmental. Apparently there are a lot of exclusive, swanky things bored, rich, privileged, uneducated housewives can do in OKC every day, like interfering with science and science education in Oklahoma. I mean, its not just Teh Pickenz interfering with university science! Via Snopes ‘Dumbest Letters to the Editor‘ and Oklahomans for Excellence in Science Education:
Kids deserve better

If you think the biggest scientific hoax is climate change or global warming, examine this: Government spends billions of dollars every year promoting evolution. The number of renowned scientists that have publicly expressed doubt concerning Darwin’s theory of evolution is on the rise. The Discovery Institute’s Dr. David Berlinski writes about this hoax in his book about scientific pretensions.
Since there is not a speck of evidence for Darwin’s theory of evolution to explain how one species engendered another, public educators are negligent to keep teaching this in our public schools.
In fact, in “Icons of Evolution,” Wells debunks arguments used in our public school textbooks to support evolution by showing they are false arguments and have no scientific value. Like the science supporting global warming is now being proved to be rooted in political correctness rather than science, the same is true of evolution science. It is more about keeping power and control than pursuing truth no matter where it leads. Our children deserve better than this!

Wesselhoft is the wife of state Rep. Paul Wesselhoft, R-Moore.
Well that ends that. I know when Im looking for opinions on cutting-edge research and how best to educate children in science, the first person I go to is the homemaker wife of a state representative, and there she is. Im sure she is an expert on this topic because she is a contact person for Oklahomans for More Gooder Science Learnin!
If you are so inclined, the email address for the editor of the Oklahoma Gazette is: email@example.com
On a completely unrelated note, the Wesselhofts tried to outlaw pit bulls recently. Ironically, making pit bulls illegal is illegal in Oklahoma. After years of trying to outlaw pits, he finally wandered off and made a generic ‘if your dog is off-leash and mauls someone you get 20 days in jail’ law, which I am 100% fine with. Wesselhofts come to the Oklahoma anti-evolution events– Vic wouldnt point out to me who Wesselhofts were until we were leaving. He was afraid Id maul them (but its my dog thats dangerous, lulz)
On a completely unrelated note, I currently, cannot find any records of Mizz Wesselhoft attending any university (she really must be an expert biologist!). However I do know Mista Wesselhoft did go to college. He got his degree in drama and theology… **JAZZ HANDS!!!** (IM NOT GAAAAY *sparkles*, lulz)
