What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Betsy DeVos (née Elisabeth Prince)

Betsy DeVos (née Elisabeth Prince)

Appointed Secretary of Education by 45th President of United States of America Donald Trump, mother of four Betsy DeVos has no degree, no teaching experience, never attended university and believes in only Christian-based education. The daughter of a billionaire industrialist and the sister of the founder of the disgraced private military company Blackwater (that was responsible for the death of 17 civilians in Iraq), DeVos did, however, donate $9.5 million to Trump’s campaign. She was described by Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, as “the most ideological, anti-public nominee [ever]” but has unsurprisingly been lauded by Jeb Bush and Newt Gingrich. Betsy DeVos has over 45,000 followers on Twitter and bizarrely believes that “guns should be allowed in schools threatened by grizzly bears”.

  1. She’s right about the schools having guns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If someone bad comes in with a gun, the teacher should shoot ’em first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And bears also!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Brilliant appointment by Trump!!!!!!!!! Tomorrow America will be MADE GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Her eyes tell a tale that worry me. She looks mentally unbalanced and her brother Erik Prince’s firm (as you point out) is responsible for a massacre. He took none of the blame (surprise, surprise), but he did sacrifice four of his employees (no surprises there). A disgusting family.

  3. You should see the video of Tim Caine and Elisabeth Warren questioning this appalling know nothing woman who admits he has never set foot in a public school or used a school loan, nor has any of her family.

  4. Is there a resemblance to that other loony tunes, Judge Judy? Imagine wasting 9.5 mill on Trump, what is really going on here?
    God bless America..
