Stonekettle on our unique brand of American stupidity

«I don’t know. I don’t know how this country has gone so wrong. I don’t know how a people who once led a GLOBAL effort to wipe out diseases like smallpox…

…who once looked upon a president crippled by polio and upon thousands of their own children confined to iron lungs and said no more, who were once proud of the science and the hard won knowledge that landed human beings on the Moon…

…I don’t know how THAT nation became a bunch of swaggering shouting louts who would deliberately put their neighbors, their own KIDS, at risk in the name of an insane ideology based on hate, fear, and a staggering prideful ignorance.

I don’t know. I don’t have a snappy wrap up here. America has survived many things, but I suspect we will not long survive this, the real plague, the one of willful foolishness that seems to have infected far, far, too many Americans.
