Are Americans Really That Stupid?

As I watched T.V. the other day a reporter was asking people what they expected from the next four years of Obama’s term as President, one person said she expects Obama to fix climate change. I swear, I sat there shaking my head and laughing, are people in this country that stupid that they think that the Government can actually alter the weather? Come on people, give me a break here, you cannot be that stupid, was the words I said to myself. If people would just take the time and do a little research on their own, they would see that over the years the Earth has had climate change since it began, it would go warm, cool, warm, cool it’s natural for the Earth to do this.

For those of you who remember the early 1970’s they were predicting another ice age, the Earth was cooling and we must prepare ourselves for the coming colder temperatures was on the so-called expert’s lips. Then, all of a sudden, it turned into global warming, because the Earth was warming up, so said the same experts that said that the new ice age was coming. Now because the temperature fluctuates, and so the so-called experts do not want to look like idiots, they just call it climate change, so they can cover all bases. Well, I have news for these so-called experts, there is no such thing as manmade climate change, it cools and warms because that is the way the Earth functions.

Has anyone heard of the year without a summer, well in 1816 there was no summer, in July and August of that year there was still ice on the rivers of New York and Pennsylvania, as well as frost around the world. Funny thing, there were no cars or buses or jet planes or anything else that the experts today are blaming climate change on, it was a natural thing then, just like it is a natural thing today. Moreover, it is people like Al Gore that use climate change in order to scare people, just so he can make billions of dollars off it. Mean while Gore is flying around in private jets, riding in big gas guzzling SUV’s and has five homes, which each one uses enough electricity to power ten smaller homes. Does the word hypocrite come to mind, it sure does to me.

Another woman was asked the same question, she said she is expecting her free healthcare, again I was sitting there shaking my head, free healthcare, there is no such thing. The new healthcare bill, known as Obama-care is nothing but two-thousand pages of new taxes, if that woman thinks her healthcare is going to be free, she is in for a rude awakening. Wait until she tries to see a doctor, if she is lucky enough to find one, she is probably going to have to wait three weeks for an appointment. People need to realize, just because you have an insurance card that does not mean you will have access to a doctor any time you want one.

Obama-care was supposed to cost 980 billion dollars over ten years, the latest estimate is 2.6 trillion dollars and who knows what the true cost is going to be. Already premiums are going up when we were promised that they would not, companies have started to lay-off people or cut them to part-time work when we were told that it would create jobs. It seems to me that the Government needs to keep their hands off of the weather and healthcare, because they obviously have no clue what they are doing.

So I asked myself, “are people in America really that stupid” and the answer came back, at least 51% of the people are, because 51% of the people voted to re-elect Obama.

stupidThis is one man’s opinion.

  1. If Americans weren’t that stupid, the Presidency would have never even been a twinkle in Barack Obama’s eye.
    I understand though. Sadly I ask myself the same thing every day.

  2. I’ve been asking myself the same question since November 2008. Let’s be honest though; if the GOP would choose a conservatives over RINOS they might win instead of losing to an Obama. People are stupid because the Republicans cannot teach what they, themselves, don’t believe. I’ll stop here lest I go on and on and the comment becomes longer than your article.

      1. Don’t know if you watched Hannity’s special last night with Peter Schweitzer and Steven Bannon but I did and though I knew a lot of this to see it put all together was eye opening to say the least. If you didn’t watch I ask you to because spending is the tip of the iceberg and the iceberg’s name is Corruption.

        The show is called Boom Town and Fox usually replays the specials.

        I think as conservatives we’re swatting at the bees instead of getting rid of the hive.

        You know the libs aren’t going to do anything; they feed from the trough.

        Anyway, my rant is over…………for now.

  3. Yup! I’ve just been shaking my head in disbelief so much I wear a neck brace & have a large red spot on my forehead from doing the “could’ve had a V8” slap at least once a day!! These ‘man on the streets’ answers are, uh like you know, the valley girl syndrome is like you know, nation wide..

    1. I’ll tell you Jan every time I see these man on the street interviews I always say “What has happened to America”

      1. My generation failed Stewardship 101 and did not teach. Instead we were indulging in ‘finding ourselves & what felt good” & encourgaed our children to. It’s been snow balling downhill ever since. A good strom fence will at least slow it down so we can catch up…if we hurry

  4. Geez, Chris! I just don’t know where you got all of this common sense!

    Don’t you know the Emo Lefty Entitlement mongers will never understand your logic?

    Here is another Climate Change story. It was on the Green, Green, Green, NatGEO Channel (imagine that!)

    According to Paleontologists as little as 14,000 years ago the northern half of N. America was covered with ice as much as a mile thick. This is important to keep in mind. The doc was about how the glaciers in Glacier National Park were disappearing. (OMG!) The program gently massaged your mind with its sad tale of how certain tree species were disappearing and animals that depended on those trees were also disappearing. Of course we humans were responsible because we’ve carelessly change the Climate in the last 200 or 300 years with our Industrial Revolution – you know all that nasty coal smoke and other “greenhouse gasses”!

    Let me see if I can figure this out. The Glaciers are disappearing from a few hundred feet think in the last one hundred years as oppose to several thousand feet thick over the last 14,000 years (and never mind the occasional mini cool downs you mentioned in the interim). Yeah, we are responsible…!

    For the Emos who cannot figure out the point; if our greenhouse gases were the cause of these Glaciers disappearing in the last few hundred years where were we for the previous 13,800 years that brought the glaciers down to their diminutive sizes in the first place?

    Signed; just another stupid American…
