OMG! We Have GOT to Start Spending More Money on Education!

Ok, so I've avoided the "town hall" nonsense out of sheer stubbornness. But I've just listened to a few snippets and am convinced that the number one problem in America is that we've become very very stupid.

A 20-something girl who bemoans that all of this is because the nation is "becoming like Russia" or those that FEAR we are becoming socialists. Or have convinced themselves that the President of the United States wants to kill the elderly.

I can't figure out what astounds me more about these idiots. That they're letting themselves be led by the nose by those who love the status quo that is screwing them over at the moment, or that they seem to actually believe the nonsense they spout. They must, how else do you get such full throated screaming unless you think you're being personally attacked.

Well done Fox news and the health care industry. You certainly have done a great job of convincing many people to do your work and thank you for it. PT Barnum would be proud.

Personally, I'm going to agitate as hard as I can for more money for education.

From the berther to death committees . . . Is there some passing comet that we can transport all these people to?

There's a reason they're being referred to as "nutters".
