Just by reading some of the posts here pretty much proves that many Americans are indeed pretty damn dumb. The grammar is horrible and some of the comments are so mis/uninformed, it hurts the eyes just to read the crap. But what can one expect from folks who don't read newspapers or who rely on FOX for their "news." I think one of the biggest problems in the US is that this fable of American is the greatest and always the best, is just that, a fable. We could learn so much from other countries if we could just get this overly patriotic crap out of our schools, and learn to understand that some folks overseas really can do it better. Less sports, less guns, less patriotism, less Coke-Cola and beer and junk food. Put the flag in the closet and get some learning. READ instead of watching that crap on TV.
