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.

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...

I came across this video which gives a different view. A birds eye view of where the Fukishima waste is being stored, the amount, and how close it sits to the Pacific Ocean. Sorry this isn't a current event more of an ongoing event. Please move if necessary. Thank you

This Next News Network video from February last year accurately predicted that...

Hiphop/thug culture is completely out of control. The mainstream media only spins it when it's white on black. Otherwise it gets a blurb and disappears after a...
