    ... I'm sitting here, just got up, want to listen to some *NEWS*, flip on Fox, and what are they fucking DISCUSSING? They're discussing that if the cop that arrested that proffessor actually goes to the White House to have a "beer" with obama, *WHAT KIND OF BEER WILL THEY HAVE?*

    My God... is that what our society has degraded itself too? Is that what the people think is *NEWS?*

    I'm moving up into the mountains... I don't want to see or talk to another fucking DOUGH HEAD if THAT is what people think is *NEWS!*

    I'll admit... I like Glen Beck, and sometimes Hannity and O'Reilly... but these morning shows and what not on Fox News are just as DUMB as any other network out there... I mean c'mon... :wtf:

    I could hear my IQ fall as I watched Fox or CNN at times... :lol: Seriously, the shit's ridiculous. In my opinion it is much better to get online and read news stories. Then you can choose whatever source you want. I usually read BBC, New York Times, and the Economist. Fuck TV.

    What passes for NEWS today used to be called gossip.

    The dumbing down of America continues.

    Can't go down much further, I though we had reached the bottom with boxers or briefs, I think they focus group that point now.

    They just called it "The Beer Summit" I am disgusted as well. The public still does not know what happened to Michael Jackson's nose nor how his love child was conceived. Geez.

    America has always had a problem with its intelligensia, but it's now so clear that both parties are pandering to the truly stupid.

    I remember when the Republican Party was the party that was the party of the more intellectual and better educated voter.

    But in the last 30 years or so the GOP has embraced some of the dumbest segments of our population in order to increase their share of the enrolled voters.

    They're dummied down their message to talking points (most of them lies) to pander to the idiots' prejudices and by doing so their message is clear enough, even if it is ultimately destructive to the nation overall.

    And so they're elevated anti-intellects like Limbough, Palin and Bush II as their spokesmen. They speak stupid and the stupid love them for not taxing them with facts and logic.

    No nation thrives which consistently rejects intellectual merit in favor of the prejudices of its dumbest partisans. That is the road leading this nation to a third world status.

    And this anti-intellectual problem isn't just with the GOP, either.

    I am nearly constantly astounded at how completely stupid some of our pols (in both parties) really are.

    Cunning politically they are, perhaps, but essantially these folks are ignorant.

    What kind of congress do we have that will sign onto gigantic bills that they haven't really read?

    Our kind, that's what kind.

    The leadership of both parties is obviously filled with bright (very bright) people, but they've abandoned the responsibility of the intelligent (to teach the ignorant and make them understand the complexity of the problems facing us) to buy more votes by pandering to the truly dangerously stupid elements of this society.
