Kibbler: Real Murcans respond to a changing world by boosting spending on lottery tickets, buying many more guns, insisting that climate change is a myth, theorizing that the president's short- and long-form birth certificates are fakes, and demanding that big gubbmint keeps its hands off their Medicare while complaining that it has a "spending problem."Immigrants respond to a changing world by leaving a place where starvation is about their only option and going to a place where they have to work hard doing unpleasant manual labor in an environment where fat white lazy Americans consider them parasites, but they can make enough to support their families, and they escape the corruption/authoritarian governments/drug gangs of the countries they came from.Clearly, the immigrants are lowering the IQ of the population.

Should we go back to the one room schoolhouse/ school marm education model?Anyway, I'm very dubious about this study. How the hell would they be able to study reaction times of Victorian era people now?
