Not laughing. I'm crying.

How far we have fallen. Now, we're back to the ignorance of our government that existed in Davy Crockett's time, in the backwoods.

And that was excusable.

These kids are supposed to have gotten an education. Indoctrination is more like it.

Thanks! I now have a head ache.

I guess that helps me understand how complete idiots keep getting re-elected. There was a time when a person would be embarrassed when they were exposed as a dullard; now it’s funny.

And remember, boys and girls...these are the same inane dullards who insist that catastrophic anthropogenic climate adjustment (CACA) is real, and that B. Hussein Obama is actually a good President!

College kids...is there anything they don't know? ;-)

What is it about property in land that gives its owners a character suited for the franchise?

In the Founders’ day, land was the most common form of property. Not so today.

I recently saw an advertisement on TV for the Frozen DVD. Otherwise, I would never have heard of it and certainly couldn’t answer the trivial question.

Reid is Anti-Constitutional and a Botched the Senate and gave us Obamacare.

Durbin is for our Enemies.

Schumer cares more for the Democrats than he does for his country or it's freedoms.

As for Republican Senators. We wouldn't be in this mess if it weren't for McCain. He thwarted his president and made the Republicans look like whimps - giving the country to the Liberals to Destroy.

I can name two or three worth keeping.

I can name a couple dozen who deserve a quick fair trial and a fine hanging.

OMG, that was at American University, and they can’t name a US Senator? Are you serious? They go to school SIX MILES FROM THE FRIGGIN’ US CAPITOL, yet they can’t name a single US Senator? We are so screwed.

My daughter goes to this school.

I asked her the same question a few minutes ago. She named five off the top of her head without hesitation. Others became a conflict between Senators or Congressman and the pressure of being put on the spot.

I’m certain she doesn’t know the name of the “Hit song” in the movie.

Her experience at AU has been one that has transitioned from self-declared communist Professors to solid Conservatives. She is a hard core conservative.

I dunno... in Crockett's autobiography, he admits he didn't even know the structure of the federal government when he was first running to be a legislator in the Tennessee statehouse, around 1822. He says a lot of his neighbors on the frontier didn't, either.

He learned, of course. I have huge admiration for that man.
