The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

TODAY Why can’t Americans THINK?

I suppose that some of them can. Probably quite a lot of them , really.

But you wouldn’t know that, from what comes across in the media. Its as if every American is compelled to think in black and white – there are no greys.

It goes like this: Ukrainians are good, sweet, and saintly people (and of course they will win). Russians are cruel and evil (and of course they will lose).

Then at home – everything that is said by the opposing political party is evil and wrong – doesn’t matter which party you support – it is obligatory to disagree with the other party – on every single thing.

I keep getting stuff from the Trumpian crowd, Qanon etc. – their whole aim being to demonise Joe Biden and the Democrats. But in amongst all this – I do find some sane and sensible criticism of America furthering the war in Ukraine.

Today, I found an article from The American Conservative. I suppose they support the Republicans and Trump. But their criticism of America’s role in this war makes sense.

I think that Donald Trump is a truly awful person – I would hate him to become President again. But – that is two years away. In the meantime, conservatives are saying some reasonable things. It is an awful pity that Americans won’t allow themselves to THINK, instead of blindly supporting their political party, and their apparently religious belief in America’s “righteous” wars.

  1. Study finds Americans are the most stupid people on the planet

    Every country on earth has its stupid people. But a recent Rand study examining 160 countries concludes America now has the highest percentage of stupid people in all 10 internationally recognized categories of stupidity. This is unprecedented.

    Percentage wise, America now has (in order of increasing stupidity) more nincompoops, jerks, numb nuts, shitheads, utter halfwits, morons, imbeciles, idiots, assholes and complete assholes than any other country in the world (in fairness, America just edged out France in utter halfwits and barely beat the UK in complete assholes).

    This comprehensive study examined multiple factors and conditions contributing to the various categories of stupidity. By far the factor contributing most to the final rankings in all categories was the competence (or lack thereof) of the government sustained by the people of each country. The study clearly shows the competence of a country’s government directly reflects the mental competence of the people it represents (conversely, the stupider a government’s policies, the stupider the people it represents).

    Americans proudly claim their government is “of the people, by the people, for the people.” So what better way to evaluate the mental competence of the American people than by evaluating the reasonableness of their government’s policies?

    The study found every government supports at least a few stupid policies. Several really stupid policies were the norm in nearly half of the 160 countries, and further, every really stupid policy and every really, really stupid policy was shared by at least 10 other countries. So America isn’t alone in supporting patently asinine policies.

    But the US government was off the charts in the total number, the vast extent, and the negative worldwide impact of its really, really, stupid policies (head-stuck-way-up-your-ass type policies). In fact, many of the world’s head-stuck-way-up-your-ass policies were created by the US government and exported to other countries (often using military and/or monetary threats).

    Top three US head-stuck-way-up-your-ass policies

    Drug war: The study called drug prohibition “the most obvious” example of a head-stuck-way-up-your-ass policy that America exported worldwide using threats and coercion. Sound thinking people aside, the study found a very high percentage of America’s morons, imbeciles, and even idiots understood why drug prohibition is utterly stupid (and clearly counterproductive).

    Nearly 98 percent of American idiots surveyed could easily explain why drug prohibition is an extreme waste of taxpayer money, why it causes vast suffering and death around the world (look at Mexico), and why it’s guaranteed to perpetually fail (duh, maybe because it guarantees massive profits to anyone in the world who can produce and deliver these drugs?). Only assholes or complete assholes could believe a government policy that guarantees MASSIVE profits for any activity will result in less of that activity. Duh!

    America has spent more than a TRILLION tax dollars on the “drug war.” Any idiot knows prohibited drugs are cheaper, purer, and more readily available than ever. Only assholes or complete assholes would expect a different result. But among America’s voters, even the morons, imbeciles, and idiots are far outnumbered by assholes and complete assholes. Thus, the insanely stupid “drug war” continues unabated.

    Two-party political system OPENLY owned by big corporations

    The vast majority of Americans actually believe they get to choose their government “representatives.” What assholes! They’re simply too stupid to comprehend the two political parties collaborate to severely limit their choices to pre-chosen candidates who pledge to work within the extremely corrupt money-driven US political system. These imbeciles have no clue why both political parties continue to rob them blind year after year. Duh!

    The only “choice” these stupid Americans get is how they’re going to get screwed (they can “choose” Democrats who will ram it deep in their left ear or “choose” Republicans who will drive it home in their right ear). The only real choice these American idiots get is which segment of the middle class gets screwed the most. Moronic Americans will soon flock to the polls shouting, “I’m tired of getting screwed in my left ear; I want to get screwed in my right ear for awhile.”

    Americans sustain a blatantly corrupt political system and wonder why they always get screwed no matter who they “choose.” Duh! Being a jerk, or utter halfwit, or even a moron or an imbecile, isn’t enough. You have to be a complete asshole to think an extremely corrupt money-driven political system (with tens of thousands of high-paid lobbyists OPENLY buying political influence) could EVER produce a government that looks out for the best interests of the American people. America is clearly a nation of raving assholes! Duh!

    Insanely out-of-control US war machine

    In the last 10 years, “defense” contractors spent nearly a BILLION dollars openly buying political influence from so-called “representatives” of the American people. In return they got lucrative contracts worth hundreds of billions. But most Americans are WAY too stupid to see a connection between these obvious legal bribes and America’s endless wars of aggression (and the overwhelming US military presence around the world). Duh!

    America now spends more on outrageously expensive weapons of war than all other countries on earth COMBINED! It spends hundreds of billions sustaining military bases in 63 foreign countries! It’s by far the number one purveyor of weapons of mass destruction throughout the world (apparently, this is America’s way of spreading peace and goodwill to all mankind).

    The US is about to sell Saudi Arabia $60 billion in weapons of mass destruction. What a great humanitarian gesture! It’s sure to promote peace in the Middle East. Americans are very clearly the mental midgets of humanity.

    If that weren’t enough, to maximize its war profits, America spends billions more supporting violently oppressive regimes around the globe (especially in Muslim-occupied countries). America very deliberately creates enemies faster than it can kill them (profits are obviously far more important than people).

    The study estimates America has about sixty million assholes and about forty million complete assholes. Among America’s professions, mainstream media “journalists” had the highest percentage in both categories. Their job is to keep the American people in a zombie-like stupor (obviously they do a great job).

    If it scares you to think how incredibly stupid the average American is, just ponder the fact that half of them are even stupider! If brains were dynamite, Americans would have just about enough to tip their hats.

    • Aj and Lorelle Heath. It is an absurd idea, to claim that Americans are “the most stupid people on the planet”, though I admit that they can appear to be that way. The problem is almost certainly their education system, or lack thereof. Some Americans are privileged to get a good edcation, but most do not. Other countries , which have a more generalised education, with a good balance of humanities and sciences, promote more independent and broad thinking. The result of the narrow and inadequate education in America is a population with prevailing ignorance of history, social studies and broad science. It’s not intrinsically low intelligence on their part – just lack of knowledge.

  2. Neither Trump or Biden is likely to be president in 2024. They are both corporate tools. Bags of wind and Lies. The climate is failing too quickly. It continues to be hot in the day, 78F, 80F, 85F as winter approaches in half the usa. The last two years, the temperature highs were greater than any recorded. Estimated to be the hottest in hundreds of thousands of years or more.
    Next year will be hotter, approaching 115 to 125 degrees Farenheit, in the southern usa and sw deserts. The pacific north west, had 115 f temps this year and wildfires in normaly wet mountains for 3 months in west Washington, West oregon. There were more,  massive wildfires in normally temperate coastal California mountains.
    You are just wrong because, you are brainwashed, like all the stupid usa people. All media organizations are skewed, owned, or derivative in the usa and most of Australia and the world.
    A third of The usa economy, is phoney internet bullshit for christsakes . A third of it is bombs that should never be used and stupidshit, like spacex or mars flimflams and car manufacturing.
    The other 3rd of the usa economy is fossil fuels, bad food and hyperinflated real estate in the land of industrial contaminates, radionuclides , pesticide contaminates,  hurricane and wildfire proned hell, where water and pottable water, is becoming inacessible.
    Even mountain towns have temperatures  118 f. I know I saw it in Colorado two years ago.  People in the south usa, cannot survive 115f temps with 70 percent humidity. You are dreaming, like the main constituencies of the 2 fake political parties are.
    Half of the usa will be engulfed in wildfires again, in 2023. The great mass of marching morons will say ladida, as their ranks diminish.
    The people in the Western usa have been drinking water contaminated by ash from wildfire water runoff.
    Ash water contaminated by industrial residue and gasoline residue from years of car exhaust. The people n those areas ad beyond, have been drinking contaminated water from  burned tree ash.
      The contaminants have accumulated  in their water storage systems, for the last 3 years. The ash has radionuclides, pcbs, heavy metals, acids, and organic oxidizing chemicals that are exacerbating pestilance, lung disease, rsv virus, chagas, heart disease, dementia, immune compromise, and general organ failure. There are killoffs going on but, the media and government suppress them like with fukushima and Japan.
    Nobody cares because most people are stupid.
    2023 will see visible killoffs and if there are nuke detonations and large  radionucleide releases in the usa and Europe , killoffs will be very visible.

      • Forget about politics, twitter, garbage news, most of the internet, and Facebook. Loads of rubbish. People seldom like facts. No fun. Just get on and have real fun, in other ways.

The  breadths and lengths of time, of no rain are unprecedented. Smoke and ash in the air in Portland and Seattle for days from temperate,  mountain wildfires.
    The extent and duration of wildfires reached records, though wildfires have occured, in in those areas, in
    the past 50 years.
    There were more,  massive wildfires in normally temperate coastal California mountains.

    Nobody cares, most people are stupid.
    2023 will see visible killoffs, unrecognized by governments and corporate media because of there biases and for fake productivity, fake
    growth(empty housing booms),  and fake gdps, that are nothing more than the propaganda diarrhea.
    If there are nuke detonations and or, large  radionucleide releases in the usa and Europe , killoffs will be very visible.

    • Bicycle riding, walking, beach hiking, meditation are the things I suggest Christina. Since I stopped twitter, Facebook, Google news and TV two weeks ago, i fell much happier. Amerian politics are, addictive shell games, where both sides are controlled by the same corporate donors and players. It a Lose lose deal, for us. Just frustrating , like being played in a game.
      Pray for peace in yourself and the world. Chant from your own heart. Only the bearer of that heart, knows where the peace is, not an outside influence. Malice begets more malice. It hurts the bearer. By bestowing peace and empathy, peace can grow. Follow the eight fold path. We are in need of it now. I have cut myself off, from the turmoil of upset, and influence for 10 days and chanted for peace. It is bearing fruit. There is no winner if your personal world breaks down, or there is general turmoil. No winners in war or American politics except the generals, corporations and politicians, really. Pray for personal peace and, show people that peace is more rewarding than hate and anger,. Then there’s a chance. A politician or news anchor, can’t show you that.

      • Well, that’s a positive message, thanks.

        Comment by Christina Macpherson | November 4, 2022

      • It’s easier, for people to be manipulated to think, that their are no consequences or alternatives, to the folly of the continued avarice and bogus prosperity, based on war, overconsmption, and exploitation.
        So people go, with the self-destruction of their surroundings, bodies and life-support systems with toxic chemicals in water, food and air, that has reached critical levels.
        I chelated my body, with some help and by myself, of the heavy metals, uranium, other radionuclides, lead and arsenic, using apple pectin, pb, edta, and succimer. Now my prostate is not swollen and I can pee again. Now my thyroid and liver are again functioning normally. My blood sugar, cholesterol levels, metabolism, and liver function are at optimal levels.
        I have slowed down and smelled the gardens and roses.
        The establishment feeds us manipulative sweet nothings that they have no intention of fulfilling, so they can continue building war machines, empty housing projects, nuclear reactors, and chemical factories that are contradictory to our well-being. They also whip people up into frenzied indignant anger and hate, to distract them, from the gulper’s, malevolent goals of exploitation and abuse.
        We are sucked into delusional ideations of fake progress, unsustainable, growth, and manic, unnecessary, unsustainable, over-consumption, so that they will continue to feed their deranged maw, to a terminus for everything. Just ignore them. Stop feeding the maw.
