Future Leaders Not Into That “America” Thing

There is much to be happy about today. Another banner day for the stock market (ain’t paper wealth grand?), we are not at war with Russia (yet), and here in the Bay Area it is raining. Maybe that Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride that the country is on to self immolate with it’s economy is slowing down a bit. And then there is this;

OK, maybe it is bunker time.

Here’s the thing, most American’s really are dumber than, well, use your favorite comparison, there are many. We laugh when we see segment’s of “Jay Walking” where Leno goes out among the masses to expose the cavernous void occupying the brain cells of our citizens. What makes this video especially glaring is that they are college folks, you know, the best and the brightest, people that just took their required civics classes in HS so they should know the basics about our 3 branches, how bills are made, and how the government works. And yet, all is forgotten, un retained. Like a bucket that is full, if you pour more information in, like the name of that dopey song, something will sloosh out the other side, like how many Senators from each state.

And yet, they all can vote, and since voting is cool (the one time every couple a years where you can pretend to give a damn) we have people Like Obama running the show.
