The Age of Self-Inflicted Stupidity

James Lewis
I now have to flush my toilet twice to make it work properly, and then still spray the bowl with bleach to make the remnants go away. How about you?

This is of course because Americans don't know how to build proper toilets that actually work.

No, come to think of it, that's not right -- it's because we don't have enough water to do it the old way.

No, come to think of it, that's not right either --- all those drought scare headlines ten years ago were just sucker plays, because here in California they only counted the 10% of water that's allocated for cities, not the 90% allocated for agriculture and industry.

If the pols and mediots were forced to tell the truth, you and I could have figured out that moving 2% from aggies to the cities would have increased our urban water supply by 20%! No more drought! Saved by the wonders of arithmetic!

We were lied to with malice aforethought. The biggest liars won.

But we couldn't figure it out, because the media beat it to death -- and because most people were stampeded like donkeys. In spite of the fact that our average education today is three times what it was a hundred years ago.

By the 12th grade you've been "educated" twice as long as your great granny and grand daddy. Except that they were educated by life, of course.

In 1910 that"Drought Scare!!!" sucker play could never have worked. People would have figured it out, or some competing newspaper would have exposed the scam. Or the voters would have demanded more water sources. At that time people didn't fall for everything they were told. 

But in 2010 the Big Lie works like greased lightning, because we have become self-inflicted idiots.

So the next time your toilet doesn't flush what has to be flushed, just remember why. It's not that American engineers can't figure it out. It's not all those droughts that never existed.  It's simply the fact that we have been suckered by the 24/7 media, and turned into double-flushing morons.

Low-flush toilets were brought to you by the same folks who blocked  nuclear energy and free oil exploration; the same people who voters in the Obama presidential campaign, and who gave us the global warming scam. The same scammers run ecological scare campaigns. It's the same mob who cover up every lie Obama tells the public.

We live in an age of lies and sucker plays, and few of us can stay centered enough not to get bullied by the lefties day after day.

We are a left-ridden nation, just like the Europeans. The evil bullies who prey upon us are trained (at tax expense) in the colleges and universities, where they are taught how to lie for the Democrats. Or maybe for the even more totalitarian left. Then they lie and lie, bully and bully,  every single day, 24/7, through TV and radio, newspapers, and now, the through web. Look at any major web portal, and you can see leftie-prop.

The Independent Web is our only hope for sanity, and for a return to a government by the people, of the people, and for the people.

Right now we're losing Lincoln's ideal of government, and we have been losing ground for years.

It's high time to turn it around.
