Nope. Unbelievably, we're still here.

Gotta get to work on that bomb shelter.

No, seriously, here's a seriously funny, true, and disturbing story.

Luke is taking an Economics class right now, and the class just got their midterm exams back. The professor (who is an admitted socialist (How an ECONOMICS professor can delude herself into believing that trickle-UP economics actually works is beyond me. Maybe she wants a spot in BO's cabinet?)) gave the recap on grades for the entire class--a few A's, more F's, mostly C's.

Luke just about got himself kicked out of college when he raised his hand and suggested that they redistribute the grades so that everyone was on equal footing and the kids that failed could gain "an edge."

I didn't know you could get sent to the principal's office in college.

He'll be enjoying his detention today.

We are getting to work on our bomb shelter as well. ;) I am trying to concentrate on celebrating the fact that Prop 8 passed. At least we have that! Kenji and I had a good laugh about Luke and his Socialist economics professor. :)

I absolutely LOVE that he made that comment in class. AWESOME! Definitely worth the detention:)

Oh my gosh... that is one of the most fantastic things I've ever heard. Tell him that his suggestion makes perfect sense, and it's the only "fair" thing to do when some students who don't study as hard have to "suffer".

I have a story on my blog that falls into a similar category.

Tell Luke that he is a true American hero.

That is the funniest story I've ever heard. Before Halloween, I heard a guy on the radio say that "If you get a kid dressed up as Barack Obama at your house for trick-or-treating, you should take all his candy. When the kid asks why, tell him that he has a lot, and you are going to redistribute the candy to other kids who didn't have as much."

I am so baffled at the number of people that are so ok with these socialistic approaches. Let's just hope he has a hard time getting things into action.
Luke's back in school?
