Americans are being dumbed down

November 15, 2012

I have often been asked if I think Americans are being dumbed down. It is obvious, and let me give you a few examples. America not only elected George W. Bush president, but also re-elected him. Minnesota has elected Michele Bachmann to a fourth term in Congress.

Speaking of Minnesota, millions of people remain Minnesota Vikings fans despite a 52-year failure to win the big one. Roundabouts are being constructed everywhere. Need I say more? I have also been asked if I believe there is intelligent life beyond earth. Again it is obvious there is. The proof is that they are too smart to have anything to do with us.
