The result is not good. If I got a D on a test, it does not matter how everyone else in the class scores. A D sucks... period.lolwut? 60% of Americans age 18-25 don't know the location of a single country according to a single poll, and... without knowing similar results for different countries, it's "easy" to conclude that Americans are the stupidest people in the world? Because we all know that the knowledge of a nation's college-age kids of where Great Britain is correlates with that nation's intelligence?
If you're predisposed to think that already, then yeah, it is an easy conclusion.
"There is a lot of talk coming from CitiGroup about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect, So let me say this to anyone listening at Citi —I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. It should have broken you into pieces." -- Elizabeth Warren
Michael Moore and all who defend him are "Firsters" and once again have no clue when it comes to the History of the Nation they seem to love to hate.
I would remind or inform them of a name they need to look up, "Benedict Arnold."
All traitors and spies should be hung in the public square.
Jefferson and Franklin both would have defended Wikileaks. Keep in mind that thus far what has been released has been embarrassing on a diplomatic level, but it has had no impact on our national security.
The framers of the Constitution held their honor in high regard. They would have stood by what they said, and not tried to classify their statements "secret" so that no one would know their real opinions. That was the honest approach to politics.. something we seem to have forgotten in these modern times, and Wikileaks has forced us to take a big step toward resuming that policy of honorably standing by your words. Michael Moore was correct in his assertion.
Disagreeing with the leaders of the nation, no matter how publicly, has never been an offense for which the founding fathers would have shot someone. A few of them might have challenged Mr Moore to a duel, but that is an entirely different scenario.
Arrogance is the trait that conservatives most often ascribe to liberals.. they believe liberals think they are superior. It isn't true, of course. It reminds me of all those times folks would defend their egos when they felt inferior in academic disciplines by saying "You have book smarts, but I am street smart."
Yeah, yeah, whatever makes you feel better. It is a waste of time to argue with you.
This is criticism: "America has a broken educational system, a greed-based economy, and a government full of corrupt aristocrats".
This is hatred: "America is a putrid s**t-hole full of warmongering idiots and evil self-serving slimebags".
Yet by your logic, the latter is not hatred, because you could interpret whoever said it to just want to improve the problems they pointed out.
Has Glenn Beck made dozends of books and documentaries for each individual, unrelated thing he dislikes about America, wherein he passionately points out every one of its flaws he can think of without praising it for anything?
Has he stated that Americans might possibly be the stupidest people in the world?
Okay, but that's not what you said. You said that, using the result, it's easy to conclude that Americans are the stupidest people on the planet.The result is not good. If I got a D on a test, it does not matter how everyone else in the class scores. A D sucks... period.
Now tell me... if all you know about a student is that they got a D in a single subject one year, could you easily conclude, without knowing anyone else's grades on that or any topic, and without knowing that student's grade on any other subject, that the student is the stupidest person in the school? (Basic logic says that the answer is "no".)
