Jimmy Kimmel’s done a bunch of these on different subjects but the gag will never get old. It’s basically a psychological experiment in serial form, and a case study in why polls can never fully be trusted. Remember that Pew survey the other day showing how, even though most young adults don’t know what issue Roe v. Wade dealt with, nearly 100 percent of them had an opinion on whether or not the decision should be overturned? If you were confused about how that result is possible, let late-night comedy be your beacon towards the truth.(Video)

No, not really. But I do think that this (and the LAST ELECTION) is all the proof that I need to ask for the requirement of passing a Civics Test before people are allowed to vote.

It´s really not that complicated. The Founding Fathers had it right the first time: only male property owners should be allowed to vote. Just think where our country would be if that were still the law.

#2 is one hundred percent correct: democracy IS a bad idea. It always has been a terrible idea. That is why the Founding Fathers soundly REJECTED democracy. They gave us a Constitutional Republic. Tragically we have lost it. We started to lose it when the statists succeeded in getting those of us who should know better to start referring to our Republic as a democracy.

Jay Leno has been interviewing only stupid people for years on his nightly TV show.
He only talks to people who don´t read, have no sense of history, are probably all on welfare, and don´t even know what December 7th means. TRUE only property owners should be allowed to vote on property issues. How could it logically be any other way ? Property owners protect property. Renters are the first to destroy property rights. Look at socialist Santa Monica and Communist New York, Brooklyn etc.
All that deteriorization in the name of a renter´s so called "rights", a Marxist invention.

#4 - I agree. Voters should be required to take a Civics Test before voting.
#5 is right about Founding Fathers and the requirements to vote. Male property owners had "skin in the game" and would be careful how they voted.

People in this day and age mainly vote on their feelings which have been manipulated by a politician´s PR people. Case in point - grandma in a wheelchair being thrown over a cliff by a Republican.

And Republicans still thing they can appeal to these knuckleheads with votes through reciting facts, offering logic and calm conversation? The Dem model is distasteful, deceitful, and it increasingly works as more and more of these fools is enticed to vote...or allow their sufferage right to be abuse by others. GOP, conservatives...get smart. Politics is just another "reality show" to the public, and we must each play a part. Get in their face!

And just think, the Democrats and some Republicans want to supercharge the electoral with mainly low information voters by eventually giving US voting rights to up to 20 million generally uneducated illegal aliens who would also gain the right to bring about another 20 million of their foreign relatives here in the years ahead. As the lady said, that urban, and is what it is all about in America these days!

This is just a sample of what our country has become over the past decades. Dims have learned that the way to victory is to promise tons of freebies to everyone, at the expense of "taxing the rich". And it´s unfortunate that at one time in American History, there actually were a small handfull of men who dominated the entire national economy. And they treated their employees almost as bad a slaves. All of that changed of course and today we can and do prevent that from happening again. But, the Dims will NEVER let the lower economic classes forget and in fact tell them it´s their RIGHT to live the good life on the backs of others. It´s really sad and I really don´t have any answers to it.

Well, in my family, we got together at a reunion a few years a go and universally decided that anytime someone calls us for a political opinion, we should lie- do a complete reversal of our true feelings. We hate the polls and do all we can to mess them up. We compare notes all the time and laugh over the outrageous things we tell the pollsters. I think it´s a good thing.

I´m also with #5. Not that women should not be allowed to vote. I know some very smart, conservative, females who are just as capable as men and some are even NRA members, but those who vote for the leader of the free world because they think an ugly, flap-eared, half-black idiot is eye candy should clearly be denied access to the voting booth.

Earth Daze: Overcoming Environmental Hysteria

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:56:56 AM     Post Reply
"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations
Washington Post, by Michael Chertoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:09:09 AM     Post Reply
On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use linked with

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures.

Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.
