    I don't know about all that, but Americans are pretty fucking dumb. I'm sure I'd see a lot of it in other countries too... but I'm privy to a lot of really ridiculous bullshit right here in the states.

    And of course these are the same kinds of scientists trying the foist off BS theories like AGW and a whole host of other pseudo scientific "studies".

    The average American is even less informed.

    Before the 08' election there was a lot of anti-Bush sentiment.

    Now, nobody likes Obama.....cept the blacks.
