Haven’t heard anything this stupid since the bit about Alabama setting the value of pi to be the “Biblical value” of 3.0!

Seriously though, how can a major political party defy the LAWS of economics?

It’s as if they think that, like King Canute, they can change the laws of the physical Universe.

The Laws of Economics are as real as any of the other laws of the physical Universe like the Law of Gravity.

Argh!

How STUPID can the average American voter be to vote for them?

Argh!

This wonderful bit of creative writing began circulating on the Internet in April 1998. Written by Mark Boslough as an April Fool’s parody on legislative and school board attacks on evolution in New Mexico, the author took real statements from New Mexican legislators and school board members supporting creationism and recast them into a fictional account detailing how Alabama legislators had passed a law calling for the value of pi to be set to the “Biblical value” of 3.0.
