Hey kids, it’s time for Rewriting History with Judge Andrew Napolitano.
No joke, in the Texas public school system elementary students are taught that tariffs were the reason for the civil war, not slavery. We had an entire curriculum built around it.
Don’t forget that as one of the largest textbook markets, many other states have to buy Texas-approved textbooks. Not only does Texas screw up their own children, but they screw up the kids of other states as well.
I live in Pennsylvania, and I remember learning in elementary school that the real reason for the war was “the economy.”
EDIT: and my stupid ass believed that for an embarrassingly long time.
I live in Wisconsin, and got both versions multiple times from different textbooks and teachers, resulting in general confusion and an aversion to the entirety of 19th century US history (to be fair, that’s also partly due to the fact that the other part of 19th century US history you learn in school is STEAM ENGINE STEAM ENGINE STEAM ENGINE I GET IT ALREADY ENOUGH WITH THE STEAM ENGINE)
The idea that slavery should have been “allowed” to fade away - even if that were a realistic possibility - is essentially saying that he thinks Lincoln was too hasty, that black Americans should’ve had to endure a few more decades of slavery.
That’s monstrous. That’s actually a monstrous thing to suggest.

Anonymous asked: “Do you know if there’s a ringtone download link to any of the dinosaur-like noises Chen made during Showtime? Like that one noise he made when they did a close up of his face at the rest stop. I can’t stop playing it whenever I hear it.”
AND THAT IS HOW YOU USE AN EFFECTS PEDAL
I was gaping the entire song this is insane
If I had a dollar for every time a musician made me feel like I’ve done nothing with my life, I’d be filthy, FILTHY rich.

A girl at my old school did the same thing as this and holy shit I was in love with her all up through senior year
