Wednesday, November 19, 2014 – The Magna Carta
Good Morning, Class,
Our social studies lesson today concerns The Magna Carta. That is Latin for Great Charter or Big Piece of Parchment that is Important in History. This charter or document was signed by King John at Runnymede in England on June 15, 1215. This was during the fifth and sixth Crusades, shortly after the earth cooled and the dinosaurs became extinct due to an act of God. This is when the Christians were off fighting the infidels of Islam and trying to make everybody believe like they do. This is not to be confused with today’s controversial textbooks approved by the Texas State Board of Education who employ similar techniques of ensuring everyone believes as they do and if there is no mention of Jihads or Islam, then they are not really there.
This king, John, was forced to sign the document. It was called a seal because there were few people who could read or write and education for the unwashed masses had not been invented. Since it was a BIG document, there were no technicalities or loopholes. It said very straight forward – The King is not above the law.
Today this document was recently upheld in the courts of The Magna Hair Carta in Texas. This document states “No technicalities allowed; the Governor is not above the law and you have to show up for the charges.” See you in court, Captain Hairspray. This lesson approved by the SBOE.
