Percentage of Stupid

Here's the latest: one out of five Americans polled thinks our leader is of a different religion than the one he goes to church for:

It's official-- we have a 20% stupidity rate in this country.

Years ago, a friend said that people believe what they want to, in spite of any and all evidence to the contrary. I don't belong to either political Party (both act only in their own best interests, leaving us out in the cold). I'm an independent, and don't believe the man is doing what he should to help the people of this country, but that doesn't make me desire to adopt stupid beliefs to bolster my point.

So look around. A significant percentage of your fellow citizens are ideological morons, who believe in absurd, made-up propaganda. That explains why we can't get anything politically significant done, and why we seldom seem to learn from the mistakes of the past.

One in five. Boggles the mind. This may be The Age of Information, but what good is it to brains that are snapped shut?

  1. And why is it such a big deal what religion he is anyway? One of our best presidents wasn't a declared anything(Lincoln). Freedom of religion and all that - Guess it doesn't matter anymore.
