SOCIETY WATCH: OKAY, CAN WE NOW CALL YOU STUPID? WHY, YES... YES, WE CAN!

The scariest paragraph I read all day came from a LA Times story, and it should worry you. Well, most of you won't be worried, because the statistical probability is that you might fall in that group that doesn't care... about stuff, but here is that paragraph nonetheless...
Only about a third of American adults can name all three branches of government, and a third can't name any. Fewer than a third of eighth graders could identify the historical purpose of the Declaration of Independence.
Here it is, all for all of you.

(1) Legislative (that's what Congress and the Senate should do, but usually don't, unless it's for corporations or Hollywood, wait, same thing really, with the NDAA and SOPA)

(2) Executive (that's the White House. And that black dude who should have stopped the NDAA and SPOPA but loves corporations just as much as (1), so don't expect any help from him)

(3) Judicial (that's everything in the courts, all the way up to the Supreme Court, you know, those motherfuckers that rule with frightening regularity against you, but that's okay, because apparently most of you don't know what they are to begin with)

All clear now?

No? How about a picture... you know, for kids!


But I'm sure all of you can give me the latest stats on Tim Tebow, right?
