America, and to some extend the world, is dying a slow agonizing death of billions of cuts of stupidity. This week, we take a look at some examples of the confounding rise of stupidity in the United States. While each one may only effect a relatively small number of people, collectively it all combines to be the death of a nation. It didn't always used to be this way, and we look at what Charles Pierce wrote in his book, "Idiot America: How Stupidity Became a Virtue in The Land of The Free." We also explain why there was no episode last week. Share...
