    we are quickly becoming the dumbest civilized nation on earth. our school systems (except some colleges) are a joke compared to world standards. their students are a good 3-4 years ahead of us and their familys actually value education, a complete one at that which encompasses, art, science, math, history and everything in between.

    "being dumb" and laughing about your ignorance of some subject is embarrassing in most other countries while it flourishes here

    This guy, literally, could be the next Prime Minister of Japan. He is attempting to oust Prime Minister Kan.

    I'm not slagging Americans. I'm amazed that this guy could be the next leader of one of the most important countries in the world.

    He's not lying. Daily interactions with Americans constantly reaffirm my conclusion that a great many of them are just plain stupid. It's a wonder some of them have survived so long.

    the rest of the world views us, and especially our education system, as a joke. Americans are openly ridiculed in other countries b/c the majority of the country doesn't give a shit about learning and our school systems have suffered because of this.

    We elected a guy because we thought "Hope" and "Change" were great strategies. If anything, he's way overestimated the average American, especially the Obama voters
