Clueless and Classless…

The title of this piece may have been used before. But, it accurately describes the subject matter nonetheless.

I’ve never been one to underestimate the stupidity of the American public. I know that’s a sweeping generalization. However, with the ever increasing number of idiots out there, it’s becoming more difficult to find any semblance of common sense. Witness the 2012 election! Barack Obama, easily the most dangerous and disastrous President to occupy the Oval Office, was handed a second term by a majority of Americans who know little more than anything about him beyond his celebrity status. And the sad part…they don’t WANT to know! They were willing to sacrifice the fabric of our society to empower an individual who continuously lies to them with vague promises and empty rhetoric.

But, I’m getting off track here…

The End of the American Dream blog has compiled a list of 19 items offering proof at the ignorance the American people have eagerly embraced. I’ve decided to add illustrations for those unable to grasp the context here!

19 SURVEYS WHICH PROVE THAT A LARGE CHUNK OF THE POPULATION IS MADE UP *TOTALLY* CLUELESS SHEEPLE!

Are we too stupid to continue as a nation?  That may seem like a harsh question, but I think that it is one that we need to ask.  Even though we have more access to information today than ever before, it seems like the U.S. population just keeps becoming more ignorant.  So at what point does a society become so “dumbed-down” that it can no longer function effectively?  We like to complain about our leaders, but the truth is that we are the ones that elected them.  They are a reflection of who we are as a society.  And when you compare Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner to men like George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, they don’t fare too well.  Sadly, the truth is that most of our founding fathers would not have a prayer of being elected today.  Instead, they would be labeled as crazy “extremists” for insisting that we follow the U.S. Constitution.  In our entertainment-addicted society, Lady Gaga would have a much greater chance of being elected president today than George Washington would.  That is how far we have fallen.

"I won?...really?...what did I win?.."

“I won?…really?…what did I win?..”

Perhaps you think that I am being overly pessimistic.

Perhaps you think that I should have more faith in the American people.

Well, just consider the evidence.  The following are 19 surveys which prove that a large chunk of the population is made up of totally clueless sheeple

qqxsge-mail-privacy1

#1 One survey found that 56 percent of Americans believe that it is okay for the government to track “the telephone records of millions of Americans” in order to keep us safe.  Apparently those people have never heard of the Fourth Amendment.

BUSH KERRY DEBATE 2004

#2 When Bush was president, 61 percent of Democrats considered NSA surveillance to be “unacceptable”, but now that Obama is in the White House, only 34 percent of them consider it to be “unacceptable”.

A drone designed and constructed by Concepcion University and the Chilean army is seen during a flight test at Concepcion city

#3 67 percent of Americans support the use of unmanned drones in “homeland security missions” inside the United States.  What’s next?  Will there be “security robots” that stand in the corner and watch us as we eat dinner with our families?

airport-security#4 Close to one-third of all Americans would be willing to submit to a “TSA body cavity search” in order to fly.

Yeah..these people look like a real threat...

Yeah..these people look like a real threat…

#12 We are the most doped up nation in the history of the planet.  As I wrote about recently, a survey conducted by the Mayo Clinic found that 70 percent of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug.  An astounding 20 percent of all Americans are on at least five prescription drugs.

The-Joy-Of-Teen-Sex-007

23179286
#19 In 2008, the American people voted to send Barack Obama to the White House.  After four years of watching everything that he did during his first term, the American people turned around and gave him another four years.

As a nation, we no longer seem to care much about what the U.S. Constitution actually says.  When our politicians tell us that they want to ignore large sections of the Constitution, we just shrug and go along with it.
America_Falling_Apart

And we have completely abandoned the values and the principles that this country was founded on.  Our society bears very little resemblance to 18th century America, and we like it that way.  We like to think that we have “progressed” far beyond where they were at, but the truth is that our country is coming apart at the seams all around us.

In this day and age, it is imperative that Americans learn to think for themselves.  Way too many Americans are just like sheep – they just blindly follow the herd.

It is time to break out of “the matrix” and to start seeing things for how they really are.  Our nation is crumbling and our leaders are taking us down a path toward oblivion.  We need to wake up our fellow Americans while there is still time.”
Sometimes it takes pointing out the absurdity to see the obvious…..

MORE Scary stuff for your Monday!…

"yeah..that's right..find out all you can on those bastards...I want to know what they're up to before the election..use that defense preparedness bulls**t if you run into trouble or something...we'll just say it's for national security purposes or some garbage like that.."

As sort of a follow up to yesterday’s post, ‘End of the American Dream’, has a revealing post on what’s behind the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order that Bam just signed…

“Did you know that the federal government claims that it can take away your constitutional rights any time that it wants to?  Over the past several decades, there have been an endless parade of laws and executive orders that have been slowly and methodically carving up our rights under the U.S. Constitution.  Most Americans are not even aware of the “creeping totalitarianism” that is happening. …”

And, returning to that all-American scary medium known as television, it’s time again to see what Robert Bianco is up to at USA TODAY!..

CRITIC’S CORNER MONDAY: ‘DANCING’, ‘SMASH’, ‘FIVE-0’

Dancing With the Stars (ABC, 8 ET/PT) returns tonight, as a new celebrity crowd competes for TV’s ugliest trophy.

I’ve never been a fan, but at least this year’s politician-and-reality-sludge-free cast is better than most. And if nothing else, it’s not The Bachelor.

Moms rule tonight, starting on Two and a Half Men(CBS, 9 ET/PT), where Alan and Lyndsey decide to introduce their mothers to each other.

Alan’s mom, of course, is played by the great Holland Taylor. The happy guest news is that Lyndsey’s mom is played by the equally wonderful Georgia Engel.

Then it’s on to Smash (NBC, 10 ET/PT) for another great maternal guest: Tony-winning Broadway legend Bernadette Peters. She plays Ivy’s mom who, as it turns out, is a Broadway star herself.

Engel, by the way, is not the only Mary Tyler Moore star to return to CBS tonight. Hawaii Five-0 (CBS, 10 ET/PT) has Ed Asner, who reprises his 1975 role from the original Hawaii as smuggler August March. Look for footage from the first show to be worked into the new one.

“There was a time when Americans still cared about matters such as personal privacy. Luckily, they now have iGadgets to keep them distracted as they hand over their last pieces of individuality to the Tzar of conformity. And there are those who wonder just what the purpose of the NDAA is.

In the meantime please continue to pretend that America is a democracy…”
