Are we that dumb in this country where we have to bride people in this country to read? I knew that America ranks on the bottom of the world in subjects like math and reading, but come on. Are we that dumb? Or is just Ohio. Here in Nevada people love to read. We consume books like Ohio consumes electing the wrong people. Come on, Ohio, start reading without someone bribing you to do so.

Yes, it's true. Library = reading = literacy = higher levels of education = higher intelligence = critical thinking.

And then you stop listening to and / or believing in republicans, fundamentalists & religion, authority figures and their rhetoric. You have become a free thinker.

The Soviet Union used to commonly eliminate dissidents by execution or gulag. Dissidents always came from the intelligentsia.

Alas, we are but a small percentage. The great unwashed masses predominate. They wallow joyfully in the mud of ignorance. They substitute faith, opinions, and dogma for true learning.

If the Obama followers are so well informed - why can't they name one accomplishment of his - what bill, initiative, etc. did he lead the charge on for the Senate?

I'm waiting - my research indicates - nada - which means nothing.
