The problem with being so dumb is that you don't know you're so dumb.
Donald Trump fan Gene Huber, dumbest man in America
That's Gene, with a cardboard cutout of #45.
Gene Huber, suspected of being the dumbest man in America, has his 15 minutes with The Donald. Seems that The Donald saw the earlier interview in which Gene Huber who was found to have been first in line at 4am for Trump’s 8pm self adoration rally. From that earlier interview The Donald also learned that it was not just the 16 hour wait in line to see him, but that Gene Huber salutes a cardboard cutout of Trump every morning. What more would The Donald need to know to upset the Secret Service to bring a fan up for hugs?
What caught my attention about Mr Huber was his Facebook presence with what I so often hear as the central reason for not only the Trump adulation but the central Republican meme of the last few hundred years or so.
I DON'T WANT MY TAX MONEY GOING TO LAZY PEOPLE WHO WON’T WORK.
In fact that is the accepted lie that keeps Republicans on the board. But no matter how you look at it, from the data, the facts or the real news, that is just a bunch of crap. 80% of welfare goes to people under 18, over 65, the disabled and their care givers. Also for the able bodied to collect direct WELFARE recipients have to work 30 hours a week. America spends the least on social programs than any other industrialized nation and has the highest crime rate and murder rate, which of course has NO CONNECTION.
Alternate facts and fake news is where these KIND OF PEOPLE have been all their lives, not just since Kellyanne Conway. But that is not the real story of this ubiquitous claim of lazy people living off the hard work of Gene Huber and friends.
Are Mexicans here lazy? Anyone say that? No, anything but.
Are Asians here Lazy? Anyone say that? No, anything but.
Pakistanis? Indians? Jews? Iraqis? No. No. No. And No.
Rural white people on the farm lazy? No.
So who are the lazy people of America?
RACISM IS WHAT DRIVES AMERICAN POLITICS. Since day one.
It's an example of Lucinda Wierenga's sandcastle skills. Next time you come to South Padre Island, think about taking a sandcastle building class from Lucinda. As expected, Spring Break youngsters (most likely) have destroyed several of the sandcastles on the island. But there's more sand.
I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own - a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism. It is enough for me to contemplate the mystery of conscious life perpetuating itself through all eternity, to reflect upon the marvelous structure of the universe which we can dimly perceive, and to try humbly to comprehend even an infinitesimal part of the intelligence manifested in nature.
We atheists lead happy lives, never concerned with the-dying-and-burn forever-in-hell nonsense. We know better. We enjoy happiness with our friends and neighbors and ignore all the greed and rituals that pay the parasite priests. Let them wallow in their medieval superstition while we enjoy all the wonders of our God-free universe.
As a scientist, I can not help feeling that all religions are on a tottering foundation. None is perfect or inspired. The idea that a good God would send people to a burning hell is utterly damnable to me. I don't want to have anything to do with such a God. I am in infidel today.
