Did you ever watch The Tonight show with Jay Leno, where he would go out on the streets and ask questions randomly of those passing by? Now I am sure only those with the most ridiculous answers were aired, it was for comedy after all. Still, the fact people wouldn’t even know who their vice president was, or had little knowledge of current events etc. I apologize but for a lack of a better word, they were simply dumb, uneducated people, Americans.
Dumbing Down of America did occur and continues. Think about this, could this explain the mentality and intelligence (lack thereof) of our Congressional leaders and president? I will excuse Obama from this group, he learned very well from his mentor Saul Alinsky…..and college professors. He is executing Alinsky’s political philosophy of destroying the U.S. just as instructed. Our leaders just may be products of the Dumbing Down of America of our educational system.
Only 22 – 25% of voters will vote today, Tuesday Aug. 5 in Missouri. Lack of interest, lost hope…….is it all part of the Dumbing Down? This didn’t just happen over night. We don’t get involved, not enough of us anyway. Too many people either aren’t aware or don’t care what goes on in our country and the world. Too many zombies! Our society is too easily controlled by corrupt government and president. Dumbing Down is about control, keep us from thinking for ourselves.
I believe a lot of problems we face today could better be solved if it weren’t from a deteriorated education system. Am I off base here?
