This is not funny. A group of secular humanists on FaceBook felt differently. Here's my reply:
SHE IS NOT DUMB! She was a POOR woman with KIDS to feed, and says so, in the tape! GOOD education is for affluent people in this country, more often than not! In a sense, she IS "retarded" (a slur, by the way, against people with intellectu...al disabilities) if you use the term, "socially retarded, or intellectually retarded." She did NOT have the opportunities YOU had! That isn't an excuse to feel smug and superior! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO IMPROVE EDUCATION AMONG POOR PEOPLE?? And another thing, that "mental hospital" crack is cruel and prejudiced against disabled people! SHE WAS POOR! YOU HAVE no excuse for YOUR ignorance!

Here's why the Tea Parody can't spell, can't think, has such a narrow view of reality, wants to cut teachers' benefits, wants to cut off funding for Public Broadcasting

Next time you think a teacher doesn't deserve pay, dignity and benefits, listen to this.

Now, who's going to stop them?
