thing is most americans are really arrogant and think they are invincible and the best

And yours is one of the WORST posts ever. Where are you from that you think most Americans are like that? That is a horribly predjudicial assumption. Just because SOME are like that does not mean MOST are.

maybe its because 1/5 americans is a mexican, and when asked, they pointed to mexico on a map ?

seriously, this was a poll question, did they just ask people if they could do it, or were they quizzed with a globe ?

i am American and when I share my point of view with my fellow Americans they are clueless about anything they don't know anything about the us constitution. there is an act of 1796 that says all coins shall be minted of gold and or silver lol. Country with an u is Ukraine. Uruguay. The currency of England Is the British Pound currently worth about 2 American Dollars Due to our 10.1 Trillion dollar debt. Opec has converted from dolllars to Euros and China is getting rid of USD. They are converting to Euros. This further destorys our economy.

Stupidity I'm afraid isn't uniquely American and this 1/5th being thrown around is probably closer to 1/3 of the general population of any Country you care to pick. You see there is peculiarity of the human brain that leads the individual to be easily influenced ( or hypnotised if you like ) into believing concepts that are designed to limit the mind.

The Human Mind is like a Bicep...if you dont excersize it then it wastes away into a default mass of jelly ( Colloquially speaking of course ). This 1/3 is well known about in circles that have influenced mankind such as Politics and Religion but only just recently marketing agencies to sell their wares.

To claim Amercians are stupid is actually what is stupid, if you look into what started all these clips of Americans being made to look stupid you would see it was mainstreamed by a guy called John Safran and in the making of his latest documentary he claims it took hundreds of hours of interviews to actually find people like this.

I heard Jordan Maxwell tell a story recently. He said he was walking to his car through the parking lot after going grocery shopping, and there were a group of teenage kids hanging out by their car , looking up in the sky.
He stopped and looked at what they were looking at, and it was a comet. They asked him what it was, and he said "well, that's a comet."
They did not know what a comet was, and asked him about comets. He obliged, and then one of them said something akin to "since you know all that science stuff, could you answer a question my friends and I were wondering about?"
the question was "what happens to the sun after it leaves the sky each day?"
they said they see it move across the sky, and didn't know where it "went" to.

I was stunned when I heard that.

I think that this is a specific path that will lead to a drastic split between an educated elite and a COMPLETELY ignorant, and primitively minded population.\, to the point where it is completely black and white... ie: men and gods. (gods only in relative perspective to the unknowledgeable masses nevertheless "gods" to the masses)..

think - the Sean Connery 1974 movie "Zardoz"

maybe this is an "oroborous" cycle of history repeating itself in massive cycles... where the elite venture underground to survive the cataclysmic cyclic passing through the galactic plane, and the remnant surface dwellers fend for them selves ala- mad-max style for a century or two.. eventually dwindling down to primitive tribe races ... the actual events only symbolically manifested through the essence of what they represented, as to maintain some sort of sembelance to the truth, as it is passed via word of mouth..

then these elite rise again after genetically evolving themselves into a more advanced race.. and act as "teachers" to steer the "next cycle of humanity's mind and it's growth back to a technologically advanced race, only to complete the cycle yet again...
with a new set of elite that survive the aftermath and preserve their knowledge...

and over..

and over again..

snake eating its own tail...

but anyway.. yeah.. people in general are becoming more and more ignorant as to the actuality of what "is".
and it's increasing at a phenomenal rate.

more rap music more porn more football more american idol more beer and drugs please thank you yum auuuuughh drool.


hey.... where'd the sun go??
