Stupidity is a human characteristic

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.  – George Carlin

Two that are stupider are the parents of the student who shot attendees at his school. They bought him a semiautomatic pistol then refused to intercede in an obviously distraught situation. The school administrator is at best of average stupidity. Given the nation’s propensity for killing school children faster than the Taliban, how did the boy get a weapon into the school?

Another stupider individual is Kyle Rittenhouse who carried an AK assault rifle to a rally in another state. Also stupid are all the governments involved. How could a boy who traveled to Wisconsin with an unlicensed weapon, brandish it in public, then kill people with it and not face at least one charge, say, ‘disturbing the peace’?

Others that are stupider are the unvaccinated citizens in states infected with Trump disease. Several reports from different quarters say that the death rate from Covid in these states is three times higher than Covid deaths in vaccinated states.

Stupid is as stupid does.  – Forrest Gump

Stupider is the Republican Party. By what set of rules, ideology or practicality can the party endorse/unendorse Marjorie Taylor Greene and Liz Cheney at the same time?  Oh, mariner forgot – it’s the electorate that is stupider; representatives are in it for the money.

You can’t argue with stupidity.  – Jermaine Jackson

In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.  – Napoleon Bonaparte

  1. It seems to me that you’re talking about a perfect storm of the confluence of stupidity and ignorance. I believe stupidity is something a person can’t help, but ignorance is something they can help. And then, there is just plain evil added to the witches brew.

    • You cut a fine point, Robert. It is the confluence that is the problem and, unfortunately, stupidity and ignorance go hand in hand and are an unknown issue with the individual.
