In case you’re wondering, yes i AM going to crow about it every time some deep red pocket of the state complains about losing schools and facing extinction due to the GOP’s priorities and deliberate policy choices.
According to today’s Texas Tribune, the fine folks of Ranger and surrounding Eastland County have decided that they might kinda like – nay, DEPEND –on their local community college (cough, cough, socialized education, cough).
Too bad they also like voting Republican by 75-90% supermajorities in statewide elections.
Take heart, Eastlanders. You might have to live without access to higher education or meaningful job prospects, but at least the rest of us have a negligibly lower tax burden thanks to your sacrifice.
