About the same percentage of Americans who believe the Sun revolves around the Earth.

This, my friends, is pure, unadulterated willful ignorance, and it can't be defeated.

I find that much much sadder.

20% of Americans also approved of George W. Bush at the end of his term. My guess is it's the same 20%.

Well, Fox and Rush tell everyone he's still not. Conspiracy nuts take this to the next level. Dumbasses like Sheriff Joke and Broomhandle Bennett make woopie in Hawaii. Add this to the election year monies spent by Kocheads and other billionaries with too much money and not enough people to hire, apparently, and there you go. Instant stupidity.

That's OK, once Obama gets re-elected, it will be fun to watch them get stupider.

That too. I figured that's a given at this point.

Big deal. Not surprising considering a lot more than 20 % of the population are total farking idiots.

Education is key to combating this mental illness. Unfortunately, the GOP is tearing down the education system as quickly as it can.

Can we please have at least one thread that doesn't turn into a pantry-crapping festival?
 
2012-07-13 06:15:53 PM
Given the percentage of people who believe in angels, aliens, chemtrails, etc. That's shockingly low. Americans will pretty much believe anything if it validates our biases.

That's why I always said it was a huge mistake for Obama to pay the Birthers the slightest bit of attention, much less publish his birth certificate.
 
2012-07-13 06:40:03 PM
How much on education do we spend again?
 
2012-07-13 06:47:13 PM

Dinki: There is a reason Fox news exists, ya know.


I suppose it's actually worth asking: did they ever run a story with the President releasing his birth certificate again last year?

Not nearly enough...

I keep wondering what level of head-exploding insanity we'll see if Condi gets the VP nod for Romney. Does he really think that people that cannot get over the fact that we have a non-lily-white President will be super keen on a VP that is not only a woman, but a black woman?

I can see it now.

In the old folks home, old crotchety morons still claiming Obama was never president.

Yeah, but how many tupperware containers of boogers does one family need? Not a whole pantry's worth, that's for sure. And besides, I freeze mine.

Condi Rice for VP is almost as absurd as Sarah Palin for VP. Which means it's entirely possible that's what Romney will do. He's the consummate panderer, and what better way to nab minority votes than have your VP nominee be both black AND female? Trust me, as much as Romney's supporters can't stand the idea of a black man in any position of power in this country, they'll hold their noses and vote for Romney regardless of his VP choice.

I hope though, that Rice has the self-awareness that Palin didn't have and realizes that she's only being considered as a means of sucking up votes, not because Romney thinks she'd legitimately bring anything to the ticket or his administration.

Willful ignorance does not do justice for these folk. I dont know if there is any label invented yet that will show how disdainful and idiotic their beliefs are.

This is why this country is doomed. Not simply because of the politicians, but the morons that elect them to office.

Screw all y'all, I'm going to Denmark.

If anything, I hope Obama does get re-elected just so I can see all these idiots' heads asplode.

You know, the thing for me is this:

If you disagree with his policies, fine. You can say that Obamacare is gonna send us all in a handbasket. And, hell, you could be right. You might have statistics/proof/etc that indicate that Obamacare is the worst thing since cancer. I donno. But when you have to resort to complete and utter bullshiat just to go against a guy, you look like a f*cking imbecile who has absolutely NO useful ammunition.

And I really hope there are death panels in the Obamacare law, and I hope these idiots are the first to go. Clean up the gene pool a bit.

Gah!!!!

/I'm beginning to think this whole birther thing is one gigantic troll

At first I thought they were simply racists, which would explain such irrational nonsense. Then I remembered our local right wing radio nut at the tail end of the Clinton years and he was just as derpy, going on about how Clinton killed Vince Foster, had TWA 800 shot down, Waco, Ruby Ridge, etc. There are a lot of people out there who simply hate Democrats with that sort of a passion. Of course I won't dispute that there's a lot of overlap with racists in that set.

These are the same people who believe that Obama has a secret army of Doctors, Nurses, and Paramedics ready to march into your home at a moment's notice, and take away your guns on a UN Mandate.

When the "Boomers who panic because of Fox News" generation dies out in 20 years, I sincerely hope this world becomes a better place.
