It is not so much that Americana are unintelligent. Americans have the ability to learn. They choose not to because they have been so crippled by
technology (moreso than other countries) and fueled by pride (whatever we do is "the best") that they rest on laurels earned by others and avail
themselves of the opportunities in front of them.
I agree that Bill Maher comes off as a snot, but Joe Plumber and some of these other guys come off equally annoying. They have Stockholm Syndrome.
Joe Plumber didn't get a dime from the Republican bailout of the fall, but he kept talking about how he was so afraid of socialism because it was
going to raise taxes on him. Okay, he's taking it in the rear from the banks and credit companies that arbitrarily raise interest rates far beyond
Fed recommendations, inflating goods and lowering income in such a manner that the damage extends well beyond a tax hike, but.... Republicans still
good, they still care, they love America... and yet he can't when pressed name one thing they did for him.
The Republican machine is like the good looking, cheating husband that tells you what you want to hear while screwing around on you behind your
Democrats are like the sixteen year old kid who suddenly knows everything and tries to tell you all about life. They act like upstarts and snots.
Even when they get stuff right you don't want to listen to them because the way they present it is so nasty and condescending.
I am so sick of what the MSM is feeding us. I'm sick of their marketing campaigns. Both sides are lying to us, but as long as they keep us sniping
over labels they control us.
We choose to embrace materialism and "stuff" over substance and value. We choose to concern ourselves with the image or facade of something and
never look behind it. This has digested in our culture and I honestly don't see an easy way out of it.
