Then people wonder why I don't hold public polls in very high regard.
The public is dumb. At least a very high percentage of it is.
The part where they have them putting pins on the countries and they have Iran, France and North Korea labeled incorrectly in Australia's location was the best.
OMFG, that was amazing. The West Bank is on the East Coast. A triangle contains no sides. Israel is a Muslim country! We really need to do something about educating the people in this country.
Dang, I didn't get that far cuz I'm at work. I'll HAVE to watch that when I get home. Man people are so stupid. To think that these azzhats all vote, and count as much as you and I. It's why talk is cheap, and why labels and slogans work so well in elections. Stupid people.
Lmao. Are you kidding me?
Yeah, they did vote Bush into office after all.
yay! let's continue to cut education funding!!!
Do you really think that your friends in the video are that stupid because we "only" spend half a trillion dollars on education?
well, as we approach some $1.4 trillion for YOUR friends' war, i'd say yeah, that's a little disproportionate...
perhaps not you... let's seeeee... war, education.... education, war... gosh, i dunno...
Well, in reading your posts...I'd...say...education...money...wasn't...well...spent....on....you...
Well gosh... what does that say about you then? I mean, i've been kicking your sorry "moderate" ass all over this message board since I arrived... The best you've done is hypocritically suggest I have an agenda....
An agenda would indicate i'm hiding something.... Do I seem like I'm hiding anything about my stance on this war and this corrupt administration?... No, I've pretty much blasted you over the head with it... You know, with links and fact.... Something you avoid like garlic...
What really makes videos like this funny is how all the 'smart' people who watch them never stop and ask just how many people were briefly interviewed and dismissed as being too educated, informed or intelligent.
My friend who directed me to this and I talked about that. We figured they had any where between 25:1 down to 10:1 smart to idiot ratio. But even if only 4-5% of the people are that stupid isn't that 4-5% too many? I mean the map thing alone........to think Australia was France, North Korea or Iran?
No. People with less than 100 IQ's lead lives that they are very happy with, and otherwise intelligent people make a choice to be informed or not.
The world is made for people who aren't cursed with self-awareness.
Obviously they only take the dumbest of the dumb. The thing is, it's still amazing how little some everyday Joe's know.
When you watch that, think about some people you know, and try to figure out what percentage would be as dumb, or close to it. Saying that 4-5% of the pop is like these people, would be a little to faithful I think. I tend to feel that 20-30% of the pop, at a minimum, is this stupid.
