Hey now that's a slur against mankind's closest living relative.
This is an interesting article about a subject that many of us who have still have a few working brain cells wonder about. Just how do we end up with
the idiots in charge?
The thing is people tend to support someone they think is just like they are, even if the resemblance is entirely contrived.
Back in 2000 everyone was saying that bush minor seemed like the type of guy you could sit down and have a beer with. Now they are saying that Palin
seems just like an average mom.
Think about this for a minute... would you want any of the buddies you sit down and have a few beers with anywhere near the halls of power? I mean I
love my friends dearly but if any of them ever got near any sort of power I would become afraid, very afraid.
A huge part of the problem is that our educational system now teaches people to take a test, not to think for themselves. Our ignorance, for a people
with such power is stunning. Just in science... the average person's ignorance is appalling.
If we want educated leaders, we need to become more educated ourselves and stop all of the knee jerk voting that gets the idiots in power in the first
