It's always amazed me that people so easily waive their rights.
That's because they truly don't know them.
People are stupid. It boggles my mind that people just take them for granted.
Today in class the professor asks why we think that the American public keeps electing presidents who do not follow original intent and the actual Constitution.
me: Because Americans are stupid.
me: no...I'm serious. Most people are retards.
class: *laughing stops.....looks at me*
me: no one reads the USC or the Federalist Papers. Hell, no one even reads the newspaper anymore unless it there is an honorable mention about Paris Hilton being slutty.
professor: That's true....no one does read the newspaper. And it goes to the larger picture of people just not knowing anything and yet still voting. *continues with lecture*
It was sorta funny because a little later he asked what I thought the original intent was of the Founding Fathers with respect to how the nation should be run. I almost got all four points on his PowerPoint presentation verbatim. He seemed a little surprised.
