10. Had to Google Mr Knight, but his is an example of EXACTLY what is wrong...

 

...with Murika (and willfully ignorant people in general), repeated with Joe Paterno and dozens upon dozens of "fallen heros", from parish priest to perfect coach.

What they represent, is so fucking important to utterly unimportant people, that no crime, no matter how heinous, and no amount of evidence, will ever convince the "true believer" that a wrong has been done.

Rush is not the enemy. Joe (coach, sheriff or congresscritter) is not the enemy. Koch, Gates, and Trump are not the enemy although they are most certainly the first to hitch themselves to the enemy's coat tail.

The Enemy is the ignorance that "We The People" are so fucking determined to deify.

The sad truth is, the average voter is too fucking stupid to be permitted to vote voluntarily. Mandatory voting at least has the saving grace of cancelling a lot of the stupidities.
