Americans are so stupid: #NUKERUSSIA

So this "journalist" (and I choke a bit on calling him that, if you look into his history you will immediately see why), Mark Dice went to the beaches of Southern California and asked people to sign a petition that he said showed support for Obama's plan to pre-emptively nuke Russia. Apparently pretty much everyone he asked signed it. There's a video on youtube. I'd link to it if I could be sure I had the right one, but you should be able to find it easily enough. So, basically, at the very least, a bunch of idiots in California WANT to die in nuclear fire. Very likely, the results of such a petition would be similar anywhere in the US. Meaning Americans are now so full of themselves they actually think that the US could pull it off and survive. Even worse, that it would be a good thing to kill millions of people just because Russia has decided that if the US can run an empire, so can they.

I was amused to see that after a Russian paper in Crimea got wind of this and conducted a counter-poll, the Russians were not so willing to pre-emptively nuke the US, even when they were informed about the Americans desire to nuke them. One guy said: "Can we just shower them with the sanctioned potatoes in response?"

   I agree.  Most

 

  I agree.  Most Americans are just mindless breeders who are more occupied with watching Dancing With The Stars or following  Bruce Jenner's "courageous" sex change than with the realities of international politics.  Pathetic.

Videos like this always pick out the dumbest passerbys though. If there were any particularly intelligent responses, they're usually not shown.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

Except that no matter what

Except that no matter what percentage of responders was shown, the Russian counter poll had only reluctant supporters when any supporters. There's no way to look at this as unduly unfair or biased. It's not Rick Mercer going to D.C. and asking people questions about Canadian politics that people are extremely unlikely to know in order to make fun of them. It's not a specialised knowledge petition like banning dihydrogen oxide. Everyone knows what nukes do, and everyone knows Russia has a crapload of them and will most certainly use them if they see ICBM's headed their way. There shouldn't have been a single favourable response, let alone an enthusiastic enough response to make a video about it.

With the Chinese stock market tripping, I looked into my investments again and ran into this one.

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

It took a lot balls to do what he/she did(or maybe not).

It takes a lot of courage to do something for which you are widely praised for your courage.

And of course the power to tell people who they can love.

Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success. --Mark Skousen
