America should start spending more money on education, as anyone who is like me and just watched that Youtube video posted in the Americans are not Dumb thread already knows. So where can we get the funds?

We recently spent over 2 million dollars on a mass study that showed that most injuries occur in an individuals own household. Err… Seriously?! The place where I spend most of my time is the place where I get hurt the most?!
This study went on to tell me about how people get hurt in the bathroom and kitchen more than any other room in the house… Duh! Bathroom=slippery floors, chemicals, electrical appliances dangling over shower currents and tubs full of water! Kitchen=Knives, hot surfaces, ext.

Then we did a study that spent another myriad of dollars on a study that said that mass scale statistical studies are a waste of money…

Yet for all this, we stupid Americans, have the richest woman in the world. We also have Bill gates, who owns the world, and one of the world’s most stable economical system in all history. In a few hundred years we’ve become a world power, something that took everyone else like… thousands of years…

How fun. I guess the moral is this: Don’t underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.

yes, i do admit that u've reach the top of the ladder....through the hard work of your ancestors and the people who wanted a better america...but now that u've reach that level, people in position of power in the american government should ask themselves how the US can maintain that position in the future? by giving crap education to the future leaders of tomorrow???
if u let urself be cocky and think arrogantly that ur the best then one of these days sum1 will come along and snatch the position right out of ur grasp without u even noticing it......notice the growing economy of china.......

Meh. Obvious "moral", of course people working together can get lots of things done.

I tend to agree with Kay from MIB
"A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it."

And I also agree withe the beatles
"It's getting better all the time"

Does anyone have any serious ideas on education reform, and where the problems really come from?

When something is at the top it can only go down. I also think the reason that alot of those people were stupid is because America is a world superpower. alot of people Smart and stupid would want to move there. Personally I don't beleive all americans are stupid... just a vast majority?... Well possibly not majority I would bet that in that video they interveiwed many more people and only took the stupidest answers.

smart ancestors. our future leaders are rich asses whose parents held some good power in the government. or they're gonna be people who took the shitty education, worked hard, and tell the truth to the people. i can only hope that when this occurs the american people arent as ignorant and face/fix our problems instead of feeding into the propoganda of politics that none of them really understand.

Well so-so. The Nazi's only came into power because there were so many competeing political parties that were very similar to each other. So even though 75+% of germany voted against the the nazi's, they still had a majority of the votes with so many parties competing for power. And as soon as they came into power, the nazi's tossed all their oponents in jail (or worse). Now with nobody left to compete with, they were essentially a runaway train.

I agree. We let those Iraqi's fend for themselves. We're all smart, battle of the fittest right? Not our problem, not need to make fun. 'Hey lets start yet ANOTHER "America r stupidz" thread LOL!'.

They probably cut the smart people from the video anyways.

Also America does have a crap load of idiots, but probably not that much as the video portrayed. Ask Ghetto people questions of intelligence, you'll get none. Ask normal people, you'll get something . But ask some smart guy, you'll get something real good.

Just stop making all these 'America is dumb' threads, we all know how most of us are.
But you look like more of an idiot talking about it, making new threads about it and etc.

Ok. Lots of opinions in this thread.

First thing I want to say to the masses is stop generalizing.

"Americans are this, Americans do that..."

I am an american and I don't do any of these things. I'm educated, work hard and hate the policies that my gov't pushes on us and the rest of the world. Unfortunately there's not much I can do about it.

Yes, I will agree that many americans are ignorant of the issues that are important. Most people are aware of what goes on and can't stand it. But they're too busy trying to provide for the families to really get involved.

Anyway, do think it was right for us to go into Iraq? No. Its a BS war, done for BS reasons. Liberating the Iraqi people? Give me a break. American started this war over oil. Simple and plain. We had a lovely excuse to go there of course...9/11. And because most people don't think they just took the BS info they were handed and swallowed it. 'Sure let's invade Iraq, they were behind 9/11....right?'

Yah, no. Osama Bin Laden is from Yemen...not Iraq. And even if you wanted to stretch it further his ties are much deeper in Afganistan than Iraq.

Do I think it was good to out Saddam Hussein....maybe. He was a vicious dictator that killed more kurds than the entire population of my town, but the power swell that occured after he was removed has destroyed the country worse than anything before that.

Military Funds? Agreed. We waste so much money on building our "National Defense" it's ridiculous. Especially when we could be using that money for Social and Educational reforms.

Being an American is frustrating...I mean I have so many things to complain about...I couldn't even fit it all in one thread...and I keep going on insane tangents...maybe I'll post again later after I collect myself.

ok...WHAT do u mean by ghetto people??? isn't dat discrimination against the unfortunate people who culdn't afford to live in the nicer places???
and HOW do u classify normal people from the 'abnormal' ones????
and HOW would you know if sum1 is smart or not if u only got a system that is obviously flawed to show u who they are?

and don't insult the people who made this topic coz ur pissing me off!!! if u can't laugh at urself then who can u laugh at??? the topic was introduce for people to discuss about and to at least get away from other threads that are mind numbing....if u can't take some criticism then just stfu!
