"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."

Why We Are Dying

I brought up the some of the problems that this country is facing.  It was in the presence of some younger women, most notably the 18 year olds.  The problems with unemployment, medical insurance, ebola, etc.  And I was unsurprisingly appalled at the ignorance.  They are way too busy being amused to death by mind numbing things.

Then I ran across this on you tube:

If I were just slightly more stupid than these two asshats, I might be insulted.

But what makes me mad is that they are so obvious in how this was all scripted.  This was not an interview.  Or some type of variety show of the Johnny Carson era or even of Jay Leno.  They obviously talked about this ahead of time to play off each other, or it was completely scripted and rehearsed.
This was pure, unadulterated crap that was written to appeal to the lowest of intelligence TV watchers.

People who would laugh at stuff like that wouldn't  understand real humor if they watched the Three Stooges.

When Jeff Foxworthy talks about rednecks or hillbillies, he knows what he's talking about.  But when a hermaphroditic freak from England talks about people with a funny accent, talking about real conspiracies thinks I should laugh, . . .

well that's just too stupid to laugh at.  It's like watching a juggler who can't keep one ball in the air. There's nothing entertaining and you just feel sorry for the guy for being too stupid to know that he wouldn't make it in front of Paula Abdul on Methadone, let alone Simon Cowell.

But who are the audience members who seem to be laughing at this?  Homeless people who accepted seats and tickets to an all you can eat buffet, as long as they laugh on cue?
