Missouri Republicans send back double barrel stupid

Not to be outdone by stupid moves by the Republican Right Wing in Kansas, Missouri Republicans send back not one but two volleys today, in their efforts to outdo Kansas' reactionaries.  First this one:

It's bad enough they're trying to teach science--Science!--in Missouri schools and classrooms, at least with this, they can get religion back in there with the kids:

A Missouri lawmaker has proposed what ranks among the most anti-evolution legislation in recent years, which would require schools to notify parents if "the theory of evolution by natural selection" was being taught at their child's school and give them the opportunity to opt out of the class.

Then, not to be finished there, yet another Republican had to fire his Right Wing, totally baseless salvo:

Because, you know, Liberty!

State Rep. Mike Moon (R) became the latest GOP legislator to join the effort to remove Nixon, after state Rep. Nick Marshall (R) put the wheels in motion earlier this month.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Moon's articles of impeachment cited Nixon's failure to call a special election to fill a vacant congressional seat in Missouri. Marshall, on the other hand, was driven to take action after Nixon issued an executive order last year permitting same-sex couples married in other states to file joint federal income tax returns.

Need REAL legislation done?

Naw....   Let's do this, instead. We seem to get in trouble, for some reason or another, for continually and repeatedly legislating on women's bodies and their reproductive rights so instead of that......IMPEACHMENT!!!

Missouri, you think you'll ever get Interstate 70 updated, widened and improved?

With these legislators?
