Is it necessary to ridicule and mock a girl with downs syndrome to make what ever point you are trying to make there? Isn't there a more chivalrous way to state your complaint without harassing or demeaning the handicapped?

The problem isn't not knowing what is wrong, they all know it. The problem is no one wants to do anything about it. It's kinda like my wife. As long as she knows she can go to work tomorrow, eat out on Friday night and occasionally go out she is happy. She doesn't want to hear the "gloom and doom" stuff. She doesn't want to know what is really going on. It would require her to think and act appropriately and she just doesn't want to be bothered. She wants to think everything is fine and dandy. This is the problem She knows we're screwed, she just doesn't want to be reminded.
As more and more people decide they do want to know, things will start progressing, and it won't be long before the straw that broke the camels back finally falls. By then, nothing but a violent revolution will put an end to the madness. Like it or not, we are headed for a showdown...American citizens vs. government. It's coming, and it won't be pretty. I expect next year will be the year it all boils over.
