Studied Ignorance

& Anti-Intellectualism runs rampart in the American Cultural Scene.

Photographer Bert Stern: Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe.

The Academic/Intellectual position of documenting, studying source materials and using information factually is disrespected.

Facts become irrelevant to illusion. The Reagan Administration DID NOT improve America’s economic position, DID NOT reduce the size of Government and increased illegal & immoral aggression on other countries. Many of the Reagan military adventures were impeachable offenses. In that regard I consider that period America’s Flirtation with Fascism.

Glib non-sequiturs are somehow taken as fact when there is no basis for the assertion. Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Sarah Palin… are all good examples of people ignoring the questions of our time and substituting Corporate Slogans: “Drill Baby Drill” [Biden-Palin VP Debate Text]

Republicans have a history of incompetent vice-presidential choices: Spiro Agnew, Dan Quail and now Sarah Palin. Of course there is the Machiavellian Dick Cheney and it seems that Sarah Palin aspires to that position when she said, “…I want to increase the powers of the vice-president…” Now that is scary.

I am hopeful that Obama will be elected even if it will only move America back towards the center of Political Thought however slightly.
