You know, I'm not going to argue with you about this. Truly. Stop trolling.

The American IQ has dropped significantly in the past 20 years. Okay? That's a fact. Plain and simple.

In case you haven't noticed.

Everyone else has noticed.

It's old news.


I am not the one trolling here. You are the one who appears to have demonstrated your diminished IQ points to use a totally unvetted article to attempt to make some sort of political point. It matters a great deal whether these numbers are global or local. A great deal. But you see, you let the way the article was written fool you without taking the time to ask a few basic and simple questions, which makes it truly appear as if you are the one actually doing some trolling, eh?

Congratulations on your meticulous research.

I am merely quoting what Google put out there today.

It's just a fact.

No reason to argue that fact.

I sense some bitterness within you. Said bitterness is clouding your judgement; it's also hindering any chance you had of making any solid argument for whatever agenda you are pushing because it's obvious you are attacking the people and not the argument.

No where in my previous post did I argue against any fact. I merely shared what I did and shared an opinion.

What does it have to do with Obama stealing the election?


LOL, I think it had something to do with "if Americans's are so smart, why did they vote for Obama."

I am actually finding this quite entertaining.

Isn't your other thread, "Thanks a lot Ohio?"

Go to bed.

No one disputes that America's IQ has dropped significantly in the past 20 years.

I've never met so many stupid people in my life as I have the past few years.

Wow really that is your response go to bed?

Did you not see the image Fox has in that link you provided where in that image it says World wide?
You know you can click that and make it USA only (would help the story better)

example if they showed this image link

It is set up to United States the past 90days

-- no need to get all upset and start saying others have low IQ's for showing
something that was wrong with the story

You may as well be engaged in an epic battle with some hobbits.

First, if you're going to pull the 'it's a fact, plain and simple' card, you HAVE to follow it up with a graph or a quote or something. Hell, you could have made something up even. But instead you destroyed your credibility with that. I think the problem here is that you wanted everyone to respond a certain way because you hold a pessimistic view of the populace of the US, and now you're mad because people are using logic and reason to figure out if there are possibilities besides the one you declared to be incontrovertible truth.

You should debate, instead of cry, when someone makes a counterpoint to your point.

Ummm... wait a minute-


If America is so smart, why did they reelect Obama?

Is this " we won, they lost" syndrome? Don't get me wrong I didn't vote nobama but I'd still consider myself part of the collective. I just won"t except responsability for anything that happens in the next 4 years.

I'll just tell my kids its their moms fault!

You know what? You're right.

I'm going to load up. Yep, that's right. I am going to load up on all the benefits I can get. Food stamps, phone, welfare, free health care. What am I missing?

Might as well jump on the boat! If ya can't beat 'em, join 'em!


Dear MRuss,

No disrespect, but you don't want to be in a position to qualify for any those benefits if you can help it.

Blessings,

I do agree with you on that the citizens of America, as a whole, are being "dumbed down". But, for the most part, through no fault of their own.

That being said, i am reasonably confident that the spike in use of the search term "Who is running for president" is less a reflection of America's stupidity and more a case of searching for other options (3rd party candidate).

With the info we are given, one would think that on election day we will have 2 choices, either A or B. Other nominees get no mention in the media. Therefore, before heading out to vote on local issues and seeing nothing to like about Romney or Obama, people are forced to do some last minute research.

Think about it. You can have only 4 working brain cells, yet know the names "Romney" and "Obama". Because we all know that, besides :bnghd: and :bash:, the favorite pastime of the average American half-wit is watching TV.

I googled something similar, but not because I didn't know the main two puppets. I wanted to know what my other options were since I couldn't bring myself to vote for Obama or Romney and still sleep at night. LOL

Yes, the dumbing down of America right before your eyes.

Well yeah....
That and if they googled that it also meant that they only could possibly be wanting to know who the two main parties are because they were so stupid that they didn't even know that much. It couldn't possibly be because "who is running for president" was a search term used to look for ALL of who was running, not just the two main parties. And it certainly couldn't be because there is life outside of the US and they simply didn't know. I mean really doesn't EVERYONE just hang on what goes on here in the US, I mean we are after all the only ones that matter. {/sarcasm}

The chart I found lists is world wide.



You can adjust the parameters to see how it was in just the US. Here is is just in the US.

Google Trends

It comes out pretty much the same.

The person who researches something?

The person who let's the boob-tube do all the researching for them?

A chart on the Google Trends website shows the skyrocketing popularity of a search for the term, “who is running for president” -- as if it were possible to miss the omnipresent radio, TV and Web ads for Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama.


And these are the people who then proceeded to vote for the candidate that they read about just a few hours previously.

Clearly, some informed decisions were made that day. Knee-jerk reactions galore. Hell, a friend of mine voted for Romney because Obama was planning to reduced aid to hospitals. Her example: the hospital in her area would no longer be handing out a year's worth of free diapers with each baby delivered.


As George Carlin so eloquently put it:


Imagine how stupid the average person is. Then realize that half of the people are stupider than that.


It is enough to make me bow my head in mourning for the fate of our species - and weep for the prospective agony of this world, which has to suffer our presence.

It's understood by many around the world (yes i have travelled extensively) Americans are uninformed/ignorant of the world around them. It seems they feel they are the center of the world and are happily ignorant of global issues/current events. So much so it's become a bit of a joke to non Americans.
