Proof that the problem with America is STUPIDITY

This is a letter to the editor of Morehead City, NC’s Carteret County News-Times, sent by a self-described “proud Democrat.” The letter was published in the News-TimesJanuary 23, 2013 edition.

I’ve added the yellow underlining to draw your attention to the stupidity.

  1. Just about as stupid as the people that put Obama back in Office.

    I had to read the newspaper article TWICE, to be sure its author wasn’t joking.

    Sadly, they were not…

    • Are you certain this person wasn’t a very sly writer pulling our legs? If not, then s/he is VERY ignorant of so much that I wonder how s/he gets through their day….

      • The editor of Carteret County News-Times doesn’t think it’s a hoax. From: http://www.carolinacoastonline.com/news_times/opinions/letters_to_editor/article_8065cdfa-6a1c-11e2-a753-001a4bcf887a.html

        (Editor’s note: The following Letter to the Editor, published in the Jan. 23 edition, has gone viral on the Web after a reader linked it to a Fox News Facebook page. It had received more than 4,000 comments and been shared more than 12,000 times by Tuesday morning.)

        Thus far, no one has come forth admitting the letter is a hoax.

      • Is it possible it’s a put-on? Anything is possible, …but based on the four or five readings I’ve given this by now, I’m betting on “Yeah, it’s legit”…

        Having worked with (and sold to) folks like this, it’s amazing how someone whom you thought was at least sorta bright is so astoundingly ignorant in a variety of ways.

        Case-in-point being ‘Obama voters’.
        They will remain the ULTIMATE example for a very long time, too…

  3. OMG! A textbook example of the dire need for a Competent Voter Act. Sadly, it will never happen with the POS in office and a Democrat majority in the Senate. People this dumb are the Democrat’s bread and butter……..make that subsidised bread and butter. It is definitely proof-positive of the effectiveness of public schools in churning out Democrat voters. If this appalling level of cognative dissonance is a clarion call for home schooling, I don’t know what else is.

  5. I’m surprised this fellow didn’t have to enter the Witness Protection Program after saying such a thing, but not as surprised as I am that he managed to pass the exam to get his driver’s license. ;)

  6. I still can’t get over this one, lol! Anybody who would equate ‘natural born citizen’ with being delivered vaginally must have been delivered anally. The only smart thing this person said was the last sentence, ” Please withhold my name because I don’t want to get crank calls.” Well duh!

  7. As Ron White says, “You can’t fix stupid.”
    Churchill was absolutely correct. The problems we have now are the same as the Roman Empire had. Juvenal said that in the “bread and circuses” statement.

    • A most apt description indeed. “Bread and circuses” promises are exactly why we have such a profoundly dumbed-down leadership and electorate. They feed upon one another and our taxes too.

      “Stupid is as stupid does.”

  8. I saw this on Facebook days ago, it’s insane.

  9. You just can’t make this stuff up.

  10. DYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  11. affirmative action allows sub standard students to enter and pass through college and become teachers these cretins then create more stupids and the cycle continues and now we have stupid at the very top of the american food chain. the president an affirmative action wonder

  12. These are the certifiable IDIOTS produced by our public schools!!!

  13. I have often stated, that the basic SIN, is STUPIDITY–and that Satan is the greatest EXAMPLE of SUCH(he must have FORGOTTEN to THINK).
    I define STUPIDITY, as the ABSENCE of DISCIPLINED THOUTHTFULNESS.
    How many times have we said: “That was so stupid of me…I should have thought that through more carefully”. Or: “I could not have been thinking, when I pulled that stunt”.
    Strange as it may seem–DISHONESTY, is the MAJOR COMPONENT of STUPIDITY–And this is what makes it a SIN.(HONEST EFFORT)
    TO BE OR NOT TO BE: PRINCIPLED! That, my friends, is the PARAMOUNT QUESTION!
    And, that is what this Nation is presently ABDICATING, and DIVESTING itself of, EN MASSE.
    There are no EVIL PRINCIPLES–IN THIS UNIVERSE–Only NEGLECTED, and VIOLATED ONES.
    Across the expanse of the Universe, there has never EXISTED, the FIRST ILLIGITAMATE NEED–Yet, IT is PERMEATED, with ILLIGITAMATE WANTS!
    It’s the CAUSE of ALL WAR, STRIFE, and TURMOIL, on Planet Earth! And, STUPIDITY, is at the HEART of IT!

  14. North Carolina is a beautiful state and I’m a native, but I’ve never had any delusions we’ve been exempt from the same failed educational system of the last 25 years with most of the rest of the country. This reminds me of the story of a woman who called-in to a live radio show suggesting the DOT move the “deer crossing” signs to areas where there was not as much traffic so the deer would be more safe. Unreal…….

    • “Oh deer!” That’s Twilight Zone stupid!
      Rod Sterling must be spinning in his grave for missing that one!

    This would be hilarious if it wasn’t so sad.TPC

  16. This….this cannot be real. I mean, nobody is that dumb. Right?

  17. Reblogged this on News You May Have Missed and commented:

  18. Just when I don’t think they CAN’T get any dumber, WRONG! He must have been in that cave with Oama bin Laden! TOTAL IDIOT! Semper Fi.

  19. One more reason cousins should NOT marry.

  20. the proof of dumb is that obama absolutely the worst president ever managed to get re elected now that is dumb

  21. If anyone needs to read something that is full of info. that explains what is going on in Mali, then there is a good article on the Voltaire blog. Reason for telling FOTM readers this is because after this it is a relief to read something that is well researched and gives the searcher for truth a lot to digest and not get mental and spiritual indigestion from. In case of a dire emergency of brain damaging, Isaiah 43 is my favorite chapter for untangling my confused anger rage sorrow and despair etc.
    Jesus is Lord.

  22. Reblogged this on Brain Droppings and commented:
    First shot at “reblogging,” but it shows that stupidity isn’t sole property of one party…

  23. Be afraid there are lots of people walking around you with there heads so far up there ass they will never see the lite of day again!!!

  24. I was always told….beware of stupid people in large numbers!!!
    We got it, this is an example, reelection on a [you fill-in the anti American tile] proves it……….pray hard,,,,you need your bible and the Constitution if you and the Republic are to survive……..God bless

    • And don’t forget the firearms! Some people are so brain dead they think we should have the “government’s permission” to have firearms, you know, those “more civilized” folk up in Chicago and New York, who have a “more modern way of living” and obviously less crime than places like Morehead City, NC, lol.

      (sarc/off)

      • You got it Randy. And it is our Right1, ANY LAW made against the 2nd Amendment is a crime, and it is another crime voting for it, in a violation to their oath of office! Why are they not removed, prosecuted for these crimes and imprisoned, state and Federal! What is holding up impeachment? How many proofs, etc. do we need. Others were impeached for MUCH LESS, and were less dangerous…more stupidity.

  25. If the average American is stupid. Then that means that 50% of them are dumber than that. If ever there was a reason for birth control….. well this is it.

  26. This is obviously sarcasm. The stupidity is that some of “us” believe a Democrat is this insane. Please wake up, we have a real fight on our hands. Here’s another example of satire:

    “Citizen satirizes proposed local firearms ordinances”
