"In 1969 the US Surgeon General stated that infectious diseases had been conquered ."

He was one of the elitist knowalls who are still referred to as "experts" today. We need "experts" like we need a hole in the head. Can we really trust the same sort of "experts" now advising our government. Probably not.

Is stupidity classified as infectious or hereditary ? How much research is being done to eliminate the teaching of it ? Now, if that could be conquered that'd be THE NEWS in the whole history of man/womankind because it'd automatically eliminate countless deceases along the way.

Hey individual,

"Is stupidity classified as infectious or hereditary ?"

Forget all these 'Wars on Whatever'
The only war I care about IS 'The War On Stupid'
What other war is there, does it not all fall under this category?

That means if you observe something stupid you're more or less obligated to speak out and tell everyone it's stupid.

Bad things happen when good people do nothing.
This, therefore - is a non-violent form of correction.

* Don't doubt yourself, tell them its STUPID
- And if they disagree, then tell them that THEY are STUPID.

"Liberty is constraint". Sounds very profound, Jamo, but what does it mean?
