Don’t argue with stupid people

Many years ago, I took an IQ test. It was part of an array of tests I took to help me discover what occupation I was most suited for. In 1996 my IQ was 120, which was above-average back then. I would hope an additional 25 years of living would have bumped it up a few more points or maybe it has dropped given how reliant I have become on technology to remember stuff as simple as a phone number or birthday. Nevertheless, I write this not to brag about being a “stable genius” like old cotton candy hair but to let you know that I can walk, talk and chew gum at the same time.

Most folks, about 68% of our population, have an IQ of between 86 and 115 with the average being 98. A very low IQ is below 70, and a very high IQ is above 130. Now this probably won’t come as a big surprise given the millions that voted for and continue to support Donald J. Frump but America’s IQ is dropping and dropping fast.

There are several theories on why IQ’s are falling. Some say it’s bad food, poor schools, or obscene amounts of screen time. Others suggest it’s a matter of people with lower IQs having more kids, who inherit their parents’ lower numbers. Think South Carolina, Arkansas and Mississippi where making babies with your cousin is considered a job skill worthy of being listed on your resume right above flipping burgers at McDonalds.

Speaking of Mississippi, the confederate state that brought us fried catfish, Elvis and the Ku Klux Klan, ranks dead last for average IQ in the nation. Big surprise? Oh hell no. Have you ever spent any time deep in the bowels of Mississippi? So, I guess it won’t come as a big surprise that only 33% of the state has been fully vaccinated, basically tied with Alabama for the lowest COVID vaccine percentages. Stupid people simply can’t help themselves.

Can we assume that voting for Frump, and refusing to get vaccinated have a direct correlation to one’s IQ? What a stupid question, YES! But maybe you have noticed the about face that some within GOP have taken concerning vaccinations. All the sudden it has become a big deal to get vaccinated. Why you ask? Because most of the morons that are dying from COVID are unvaccinated Frump voters. What Mitch McConnel and Qevin McCarthy are saying now is I know we killed a bunch of you to make Biden look bad, but you should really get your Frump shot so you can vote for us in 2022. It’s still Biden’s fault, but get the shot.

Speaking of Qevin McCarthy, have you seen who he is now blaming for the January 6th attack on the Capitol? Not Frump but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. According to Qevin the “tourist” that beat law enforcement with American and MAGA flags and sprayed bear repellent in their faces was really Pelosi’s fault. Per Qevin, it was Pelosi’s responsibility to activate the National Guard. Based on that logic, and Qevin knows this, if Pelosi is at fault, then so is McConnel but that oh so minor detail wasn’t included in Qevin and Gym Jordan’s press conference.

The truth is, and we will hear these truths in the coming days and weeks, as Speaker of the House, Pelosi does not direct the National Guard. And when the Capitol came under attack, both she and McConnel called for military assistance, including the National Guard. But sadly, it fell on deaf ears because the Clown-in-Chief was upstairs in his bedroom watching the “tourist” defend his “honor”. It is now common knowledge that a whole host of people from Ivanka to Qevin McCarthy pleaded and begged with President Dipshit to get off his ass and do something. But in the end, it was Vice President Mike Pence, the guy the “tourist” wanted to hang, and the one Frump called a coward, that had to take charge of the situation.

I think it is sad that McConnel, McCarthy, Jordan, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the GOP, Fox News brain trust take advantage of these low IQ citizens simply to line their pockets and stay in power. These poor idiots would gladly eat dog shit if Sean Hannity told them it was beef jerky and pretend they like it to “own the libs”. It just seems so unfair. As J. S. Mill, an English philosopher, and political economist noted 100 years ago, “Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.” Same old shit, different decade.
