Are We Dumber than Dogs?
I was thinking the other day about something that is happening slowly and maybe deliberately.
I am talking about the 'dumbing' of America.
Not hard to see how dumb we have become, just look around at your fellow occupants of America and it will be painfully obvious what is happening here today. We are doing stupid things in record numbers. Lets start with the TV and see where it goes from there.
Laugh tracks, 1/2 hour sitcoms, surviving ridiculous scenarios, people willing to subject themselves to ridicule for their 15 minutes of fame and misfortune. All the while the masses soak it in and bring the previous nights' episodes to the workplace and yak around the water cooler for hours about it while getting paid minimum wage. What a country!
Traffic reflects the stupidity of the masses by having collisions at speeds less than 25mph because they were reading and yakking on cell phones when they should have been paying attention. Carry those same actions to the left lane(passing lane) and driving 5 to 10mph slower than or equal to the adjoining lanes making it impossible to get around their busy little selves, all the while they are oblivious to anyone around them.
Neighbors are not much better at being smart with barking dogs at all hours, while tuning in to the latest episode of Survivor, mowing lawns 1/2 hour before dark, parking their cars on your lawn for the redneck brew fest next door.
Who is responsible? Well the hard truth is, we are. Once we tolerate ineptitude we in effect condone it. By refusing to improve we become retarded and stagnant. Political considerations are the furthest things from their simple little minds. By turning over our children to a school system, who as their main concern, is to keep the student flow going out the door and graduating with lower reading and comprehension skills, just enough to move them out we condone it.
We have set ourselves up for what we see today, total rule by a dictator. Only thing is we are too stupid to see that because of all the aforementioned items, have prepared us as sheep ripe for the slaughter by those that would use us for their own gain.
They have established a financial system that favors the rich and gleans the poor, they have established a government that rules with an iron fist and can imprison at will anyone they feel is not towing the line.
Yes what a fine mess you all have gotten us into now. By allowing stupidity to flourish you have set us up like dominoes, to be knocked down at the governments will. And right now theres' not a damn thing you can do about it.
The dogs ARE smarter, they have us working for them.
