Republicans are turning American into a third world nation. Proof:
Rather than spend money on cutting grass, the Carlisle School District has brought in 7 Romney sheep to tend the fields. “They’ve done a good job so far,” says Superintendent John Friend.
The sheep come free of charge, since they belong to the principal of the middle school. Friend estimates that they will save the district about $15,000 this year in mowing costs.
Another budget-cutting tea party crank, Governor Tom Corbett, is to blame for this nonsense.
Effing sheep! Cutting the grass!
We’re seriously a few more sheep and a Thunderdome away from becoming Bartertown.
UPDATE: I think the pro-sheep commenters are missing the point. The point is the budget cuts. The people who formerly maintained the grounds at that school were fired because Tom Corbett decided to cut public school funding to the point where those jobs were replaced with sheep because no one was around to cut the grass. There’s something very wrong about that — and especially where it leads.
