Kooky Crackpot Karens & Banned-Book Barbies at PUSD Board Meeting

PUSD board meeting: the kooky crackpot Karens are at it again

Well Secular Fam, another week, another PUSD board meeting. This meeting just so happened to occur on one of the worst days of my life. The evening of this meeting coincided with the passing of my beloved best friend, Moxie.

Moxie was a beautiful rescue pit mix that found me right before the 2020 election. She was by my side through some of the toughest times of my life, and you can read more about the most perfect dog that ever existed here. I love you, my Moxie girl. RIP.

I ended up watching some of this meeting while I was at the animal hospital ER (shout out to VetMED for their compassion and professionalism) because I needed something to distract me from the inevitable terrible outcome I was expecting. Because of my circumstances, I was feeling extra salty and annoyed already.

So be warned: my tolerance for all the ridiculous nonsense that just oozes from the mouths of these Homemakers for Hitler was at an all-time low

This Substack may be extra spicy, so if you’re easily offended, you may want to stop reading here.
