Study: Most Americans Gullible Idiots
In a country where a majority of people believe "God created humans in present form" (excellent work, God!) and can't find Iraq (or even New Orleans) on a map, it's hardly surprising that 61% of Americans strongly support the TSA's absurd ban on all carryon liquids and lotions except for sex lube.
Surprising? No. Sad? Well, it's hard to find a "bright side" to widespread retardation. Read the whole stupid thing ... after the jump.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans support the current ban of most liquids on airplanes, according to a new Harris Interactive poll, compared with about a third who feel it is unnecessary.Asked why such a serious security plan should be dropped within "a few months," respondents agreed they wouldn't remember anything about the Liquid Terror by then, because of football season.
In a separate question, forty-eight percent of those polled said they think the current ban on bringing liquids onto airplanes should last as long as the government deems it necessary. Twenty-five percent said they think the ban should last indefinitely, while 20% said they think it should last for "a few months."
You won't be hearing it from Kyra Phillips, but the "London Terror Plot" was totally discredited within a week, the would-be "terrorists" didn't even have passports or airline tickets (let alone bombs), and the "Liquid Explosive" scheme as presented by U.K. and U.S. fear-mongers isn't actually possible.
