Americans are stupid. That’s what people say. Especially non-American people.
But what makes stupidity in America stand out is that most Americans — the dumb ones, I mean — don’t even think it’s bad to be dumb. Far from being ashamed, they’re dumb and they’re damned proud of it.
Here’s a simple arithmetic question: A bat and ball cost a dollar and ten cents. The bat costs a dollar more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?
The vast majority of people respond quickly and confidently, insisting the ball costs ten cents. This answer is both obvious and wrong. (The correct answer is five cents for the ball and a dollar and five cents for the bat.)
Genuine stupidity is ALWAYS driven by a lack of self-awareness.
WOW! Far from being ashamed, DeRose shared this Sacramento Bee story despite the fact she has funded Senator Richard Pan’s 2018 re-election campaign.
If that’s not genuine stupidity I don’t know what is.
DeRose’s reply to a comment was equally moronic.
In order to understand just how stupid this comment is one must first understand DeRose shared a link to Entity ID# 1374058 which is the Dr. Richard Pan For Senate 2018 Committee. Specifically, the link provided is for Pan’s “Contributions received” during the FILING PERIOD: 01/01/2017-06/30/2017.
Pan’s “recall campaign account” was TERMINATED 05/17/2016 (You’re welcome BTW) with Pan’s last F460 filing FILED ON: 5/20/2016 5:02:00 PM.
For those of you with room temperature IQ’s, the funds received during the FILING PERIOD: 01/01/2017-06/30/2017 have NOTHING to do with the “recall campaign account” as it was TERMINATED 05/17/2016.
In reality, DeRose helped raise $253,488.96 for Senator Pan, $65,013.83 of which was transferred to Pan’s Ballot Measure Committee Entity ID #1347510.
Yes, “you can see the folks that support him and his bad behavior” if you aren’t stupid.
