I rarely ever post links, but this one pretty well lends validity to this thread's title.

    Yep, this reminds me of when Sean Hannity would put his man on the street and ask the general public who they were going to vote for. Most of them had no idea who their politicians were or what position they held. I don't believe it was a true representation of our society as a whole but it does scare you that these people are actually allowed to vote.

    In my opinion, there should be a test given before people are given a voter registration card that they are competent and qualified to vote. Somebody who has Zero Education, can't speak English, Can't read, has no business voting for people that are going to govern. This is insane. It's as bad as letting non citizens vote. But certain politicians (Mainly associated with one of our two main political parties) want these people to vote because due to their giveaway policies they know these low info voters will vote for them. And all this party is about is votes. They will do anything to stay in power.

    The U.S. is supposedly a big melting pot. Carrying this further, a melting pot for metal produces slag, or dross. We have been remiss in not removing the slag/dross. Therefore, the electorate in general, if spotted 75 I.Q. points, would still be in negative numbers. Or something like that.............. It reminds me of a herd of cattle in which the culls are allowed to reproduce.

    Low info voters throw all parties and candidates under the bus and claim they're all the same. This makes it easy for them so they don't have to explain what they're doing. Well none of us have to explain anything anyway, but if people were truly informed they wouldn't vote like a third grader in the first place.

    Yes. If you'd have asked them what DNC stands for, they'd have blurted that out immediately. :rotflmao:

    Sadly, my oldest with a Master Degree, voted for Obama in 2008 . when I asked why, she stated she refused to vote for George Bush.....but he's not running and can't run his two terms are up...."I don't care I'm not voting for Bush!" Sometimes its tough to love relatives but a father has to do what he has to do......beat his head against the wall. "Did you read Mr. Obama's autobiography?" "Nope, can't make me vote for Bush, Dad."

    At least she let's my SIL shoot with me!

    I've got one that got her PHD in Micro Biology as did here husband (That's where they met) and they both work for Johns Hopkins as medical researchers. And they both voted for Obummer twice. There reason? their professor told them that The Democrats contribute more to medical research. I said you don't think us poor overtaxed working people don't contribute to your research? I told her Obama gave less to charities and research than about any Republican President has. Not entirely sure that's 100% correct but I have read that several times that the Obamas didn't contribute too heavily, but a lot of our taxes go toward research.

    Like I said, I don't often post links, but this one hit really close to home.

    At issue here in Colorado in the November elections is Proposition 105 "Labeling Genetically Modified Food".

    While I could type the whole 5 pages of "Definitions" contained in the Colorado 2014 State Ballot Information Bookle (Research Publication No. 639-3) suffice it to say I'm not going to.

    In a nutshell, though, practically any food you purchase at a convenience store, restaurant, or establishment that derives over 50% of its income from "immediate consumption" food sales is exempt. Not exempt....cattle ranchers, chicken farmers, and (among others) vegetable growers that sell their goods for "less than immediate consumption".

    The USDA doesn't even have standards that approach this one. If they did, Iowa would never sell another ear of corn, Kansas may as well take up basket weaving, Arkansas may as well turn their chickens into feather beds, Louisiana can forget about red-beans and rice, and I don't know who produces the most piggies in the US at this time, but those would surely be a loosing proposition.

    But any one of those state could sell their wares in this state without any "GMO Notification Labeling". But, we couldn't sell ours not only here, but not in their states either.

    The initiative is laughable. But, what scares me is that there are enough loonies in this state who managed to get it put on the ballot. Loonies just like the ones in the link.

    I love this state. I knew I wanted to live here back in '74. It took me till '04 to make it. But...............I'm wondering about Idaho or Wyoming. I'm beginning to feel like the only ballot I can cast here that'll count will be with my feet.

    Mike, the problem is that CO has a poor immigration policy that let in WAY too many looney tunes from CA. They have reproduced unchecked and dumbed down the state. They fouled their own nests in CA, moved to CO to escape it, and ended up fouling that nest, too. Too bad y'all can't deport 'em back to CA!

    The problem isn't that CO has a poor immigration policy. It's the same policy that all US states have. But just wait until the CA dudes and dudettes discover that Tennessee has mountains and they are a whole lot easier to walk and leaf-peep through than the Rockies.:devil:

    Oh the loony tune crew has made it to Tennessee already, ( and a few Kansans :tooth:), they just don't seem to survive as well once they exit Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville etc. Send them to Mountain City, they will look for an easier place to assimilate!

    Can't speak for Jerry's part of the state, but over here in East TN we got a bunch of folks from 'up North' and from other areas way West. However, there is a HUGE cull factor; folks that don't fit in and refuse to change to fit in are 'encouraged' to go elsewhere. That 'encouragement' can be a bit intense.

    Some of the recalcitrant ones form those HOA type things and cluster together, which is good. That way the infection/infestation can be localized. :roll2:
