Bob Kingsbury, New Hampshire Republican, Says Kindergarten Leads To Higher Crime

Source: HuffPo

A Republican New Hampshire state legislator told a county convention Monday evening that kindergarten leads to higher crime rates.

Rep. Bob Kingsbury (R-Laconia) told the Belknap County Convention that research he's been conducting for the last 16 years has led him to believe that kindergarten programs leads to higher crime rates, the Laconia Daily Sun reported. Kingsbury, one of the more conservative legislators in the Tea Party-controlled House, said that his analysis was of local crime rates in communities that offered kindergarten versus those that do not offer the educational program.

"We're taking children away from their mothers too soon," Kingsbury said, who also linked higher crime to the lack of boxing classes in high schools

Kingsbury's comments came during a discussion over whether or not to build a new county jail and why inmate populations continue to rise. He said he shared his research with other legislators when he tried to fight mandatory kindergarten in the state.

1. Just when you think they can't get any crazier

They up and prove you wrong. Is there some kind of stupid pill republicans have to take these days to get elected? Or is it another oath like the one they have to make to Grover? I promise to be as dumb as a box of rocks, and prove it everyday by coming up with something crazier than my fellow republicans!

15. It's something in Laconia.....

Have worked there a couple times - odd place, massive wealth around Winnepasaukee cheek- by jowl with a hardscrabble old mill town. I guarantee that this mossback has been telling this story at the bar or the donut shop board meeting for a coupla decades now.

4. Association is not causality. Someone needs to teach this idiot basic statistics.

There are plenty of reasons why areas with more comprehensive school programs would have more violence---as in both of them are likely to be in urban areas.

9. The guy sounds senile.

"Kingsbury, 86, has a history of supporting ideas that differ from his fellow legislators. In January, he partnered with two allies of birther queen Orly Taitz to push a bill partially ending the direct election of U.S. senators. Kingsbury said that he believed that all U.S. Senate candidates should first be picked by the state legislature and then put up for popular vote."

"Kingsbury also sponsored a failed effort to tie future state legislation to the Magna Carta, a move that he told colleagues was to honor the English document's history."

12. Kindergarten also causes global warming! As the number of kindergartens increased, so did the

temperature.

13. Nah, I think it's birth. Birth leads to higher crime.

Let's see, who are the pro-birthers? Republicans. Pro-birth = pro-crime. Yep, thought so.

16. That is it! What is wrong with these clowns?


I had first day sweet Kindergarten students that were so much smarter than the " adults" in the Rethug Party.

They would never want to put a puppy on a car!

20. Kingsbury is wrong!

It's MILK! Almost every single criminal, addict, politician and almost every other negative segment of our society was fed MILK as a child. Drinking MILK is the gateway behavior, the gateway drug, the gateway to politics. Wake up America and OUTLAW MILK!!!
