...Admit it, you knew another of my rants about Amairikuhn edgykayshun was coming soon. Indeed, it's well overdue.

Thankfully, Mr. S.C. in the U.K. (for the Amairikuhn reading audience, those that can still barely read[remember, sound out the letters slowly...oh, wait, I forgot, that's phonics, and forbidden],  "U.K." stands for the United Kingdom, a.k.a. Great Britain, which is a completely different country, which this country fought a revolution under George Washington [that's the guy on the one dollar bill] back when we were sort of "one country")...oh, never mind... it's hopeless.

You'll see just how hopeless it is, when you read the article Mr. S.C. shared with me. Granted, it's a U.K. tabloid (The Independent) and British tabloids are almost as fun as the latest episode of Sherlock (for the Amairikuhn audience, "Sherlock" is a television series on the BBC, which is the British Broadcasting Corporation, a really big television network owned by Queen Elizabeth  -- no not the one who had problems with that Spanish fleet thing - based upon a character by Arthur Conan...) oh never mind, it's hopeless.

For those who haven't graduated with a BS in gender studies from Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, or other Big Name American quackademy, here's the article:

Get this:

And yet, it turns out many people do not understand how chocolate milk is made: some genuinely believe chocolate milk is milk from brown cows.

Whether those brown cows are also thought to produce cocoa and sugar is not clear.

In a study by the Innovation Center of US Dairy, it was found that seven per cent of Americans believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows.

These weren’t children either - the research was conducted on 1,000 people over the age of 18.

A whopping 48 per cent of people said they didn’t know where chocolate milk came from. (Emphasis added)

Let that sink in: one thousand American adults were in the sample, and, good news, "That’s about 16.4 million people, which is more than the population of Ohio." And seven percent of that think brown cows are the source of chocolate milk. Assuming a certain percentage of that were simply "joke responses" that still leaves a rather large portion of the population that is just plain stupid. Extending the "chocolate-milk-from-brown-cows" principle indicates just how colossally stupid a significant segment of the American population really is, for it would have cottage cheese being made in cottages, buttermilk coming from ...what? cows of a sour disposition? And, as the article points out, strawberry milk from, well, strawberry-eating cows?

But wait, the stupidity is not over:

This isn’t the first study to reach a worrying conclusion though - previous research has found that nearly one in five Americans do not know that hamburgers are made from beef.

Wait... you mean, the hamburger I had for lunch yesterday was not from Hamburg? (Oh the shock! the horror!) False advertising! There should be a law, or at least, a warning label on hamburgers that they are not from Hamburg!

Think I'm exaggerating? Think the American public is not that stupid? Think it is not capable of insipid explanations and responses like that? Well, check this statement out:

“At the end of the day, it’s an exposure issue,” said Cecily Upton, co-founder of the nonprofit FoodCorps, which brings agricultural and nutrition education into elementary schools.

“Right now, we’re conditioned to think that if you need food, you go to the store. Nothing in our educational framework teaches kids where food comes from before that point.”

And apparently some people don’t feel any huge need to find out either.

“We still get kids who are surprised that a French fry comes from a potato, or that a pickle is a cucumber,” Upton said.

It's an "exposure issue." No, it's not an "exposure issue." Let's quit using the flannel-mouthed euphemisms of the snowflake to qualify things, and call it like it is: it's an "education issue," and more accurately, a complete failure of our education system; top to bottom: failure. Teaching credentials have produced failure; doctors of edubabble have produced failure; their pseudo-discipline has produced failure. Why? Because by and large, the system has been deliberately designed by stupid people (the aforesaid doctors of education) for stupid people to reward stupid people. Failure, from kindergarten to the Harvard BS in gender studies: failure.

The result? Chocolate milk comes from brown cows, cottage cheese from cottages, and hamburgers are sandwiches from Hamburg(or Germans!?!?  There's a possibility!  Hamburgers are really sandwiches made of Germans from Hamburg!)

And just wait, sooner or later, we'll hear that the playing field needs to be leveled to account for the lack of "opportunity" to be "exposed" to commonplaces, and that questions like this  will thus eventually appear on the individually-adjusted computerized standardized tests of the Common Core program.

That sounds like a stupid idea, doesn't it? That sounds completely impossible, doesn't it?  But no, the "exposure issue" has already produced the chocolate-milk-from-brown-cows formula.

See you on the flip side...

    I knew we were in trouble in 2012 when a National Science Foundation survey found a quarter of Americans surveyed could not correctly answer that the Earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around.

    “The survey of 2,200 people in the United States was conducted by the NSF in 2012 and released on Friday at an annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago. To the question ‘Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth?’, 26 percent of those surveyed answered incorrectly.”

    And there you have it…

    I think it is equally dangerous when you can talk about Western decline affairs with other people that the cabal plans this in unison. Like the populous is a victim of a well oiled unified functioning body. I am not saying there is no connection/relation but that today’s Western world is a reflection of that western leading cabal that is very much impaired itself and panicking due to hegemony problems on the world stage.

    To keep any society going there must be fundamentals in place, the cabal even managed to get rid of those and hence Western society as we know it is collapsing. Social engineering only goes so far, I think there is such a thing as social engineering oneself out of existence!

    Um, but the Independent doesn’t link the study or explain the methods of the survey. So therefore the conclusions are highly suspect.

    Imagine someone finding an online “survey” regards milk, cheese, dairy, and the answers are multiple choice: if one of the questions is “where does chocolate milk come from”, while the answers are

    A. chocolate is mixed with milk in a factory/dairy,

    B. chocolate cows,

    C. cows that eat cacao plants,

    which do you think most people would pick?

    I asked for a bottle of Bud at pub recently. The young lady behind the counter said what’s a Bud? I said you know a bottle of lager, Bud (my mind had gone blank and couldnt think – I was starting to think am I living in a parallel universe? Is there no such thing as a lager called Bud, have I made this up? Am I on a different timeline, CERN what have you done??) but I digress… then she said suspiciously – is this a trick question? Then like a bolt out of nowhere my mouth moved and out came the words ‘Budweiser’ please can I have a Budweiser. She said she’d never heard of it – I said they’re right behind you. Then she gave me this look as if to say ‘yeah, yeah I’m not falling for it’. It was the most bizarre five minutes ever! My point being it’s a struggle these days for most young people to even serve you adequately and without feeling that they think they’re doing YOU a favour by gracing you with their scintillating company. Delusional.

    • Lost on June 28, 2017 at 8:39 am

      Well for the summer of 2016, in the USA, the “Bud” bottles all said “America” on them, in place of Budweiser.

      Also of course Budweiser is really a Czech beer that isn’t frequently available in bars in the USA.

      • Phil the Thrill on June 28, 2017 at 11:19 am

        Wherever Budweiser comes from, it is swill; and it is available in every bar in America I ever went to, Lost, which is ….quite a few. Uh merican Edgikashun and Roundup-spiked swill go hand in hand with mcdonalds french fries and vaccines. Are you starting to see the program, Lost?

      • Katie B on June 28, 2017 at 12:38 pm

        I don’t live in the US and the bottles were right behind her. She could not work out that Bud was a short name for Budweiser and instead thought I somehow wanted to trick her. Bizarre.

        • Phil the Thrill on June 28, 2017 at 1:04 pm

          I’ll tell you what’s even more bizarre: those Germans take rightful pride in their beer purity law, which is over 500 years old. So they were understandably confounded to discover recently that Roundup contaminated more than a dozen of Germany’s finest brews. Now how, might you suppose, did THAT happen?

    The programming starts very early these days in the guise of children’s animated cartoons. They use a lot of symbolism to entrain young mind’s where it stays planted in the subconscious to elicit certain messages/emotions the rest of their lives.
    This video shows that there is an archive of templates (AI generated?)of themes that are designed to normalize and desensitize the children to instances or scenes of assaults, blood, scat, alcohol, drugs, nudity, violence, crime and social deviance. The same scenes are used over and over to plant seeds in the minds of very young children. They are Infecting our children with anti-social values that will affect them throughout their lives.

      I’ve read plenty of Internetz about Walt Disney being used by Illumunati as an abusing ground for young children.. and using Disney symbolism in Monarch…….

    Occasionally I will have a conversation with someone about what is really going on in the world and they will look like I’m nuts. Invariably, the people who look aghast and dumbstruck are Americans. They look like their brains will literally explode and fall out of their yawning mouths.
    Europeans are usually avidly interested, and Latinos just nod their heads and say, “yeah, of course!”
    The Americans invariably can’t believe what I tell them, even though everything is verifiable fact. Instead, they shut down and say, “Doesn’t it make you unhappy believing all that? Most people are good and just want to get along.”
    I always say, you know, what makes me unhappy isn’t that I “believe” these unpleasant yet verifiable facts. It’s that I have to live in a world where full adults act like children, and that if people would just put down their selfie sticks and pay just a bit more attention to what’s going on as I have done, then I wouldn’t have to suffer living in a world that is an obvious, corrupt mess. I said that suffering fools all one’s life and the consequences of mass cluelessness is quite tiresome for anyone that thinks and is aware.

    At this point, Americans’ eyes completely glass over and their brains do indeed explode.

      It’s not even a matter of IQ, (or one’s ability to assimilate and process information quickly), that’s truly at issue. It’s more a matter of heart. People don’t have heart anymore. They simply don’t care about anything beyond themselves or their immediate circles. Care has indeed been cremated. And it continues to be cremated every day in every sphere of human activity– not just once a year at the foot of that blazing owl statue on the Bohemian Grove campus. And many of our most ‘capable’ people, with their much-vaunted high IQs, are often the guiltiest of caring the least. Ultimately, these ‘geniuses’ do far more damage than any low-grade simpletons who believe the moon is made of Swiss Cheese ever could. The ‘terrifically bright’ often have very good lives and don’t want to ruin them by looking too deeply at things. They like their trinkets and their positions and they intend to keep them, come what may for the rest of us. And that’s a far sadder truth, in my opinion. So, as much as we’d hope for an increase in processing power amongst our simple-minded brethren, we should equally hope for an increase in care, and the restoration of heart, amongst our so-called ‘best and brightest’.
