When Did the World Become So Stupid???

Is it something that has been coming on gradually? Or did it happen suddenly, and that's why it's taking me by surprise?

Suddenly I see evidence of the human population's stupidity everywhere. I can't NOT see it.

A few days ago, I noticed that some of the headlines on cnn.com have t-shirt icons next to them. If you click on the t-shirt icon, you see the headline available on various t-shirts.

Two questions came to mind - why would anyone want a headline on a t-shirt, and is there really a demand for this?

In other news, feminism, the quest for women to have rights equal to men's, is bad for the environment, according to Jack Cashill (I have no idea who the hell he is). The title of his column says it all: "Feminism is bad for the environment". According to Cashill, women demanding equal pay for equal work are also to blame for increased people driving to and from work every day, which increases pollution. Well-off moms are especially to blame since they have sitters or nannies drive the kids to school, putting three cars on the road (dad's, mom's and nanny's), whereas if mothers home schooled their kids, they would eliminate the pollution and traffice of school buses, carpools, and moms and/or nannies driving kids to school. Yeah, blame women for wanting education, or God forbid, a career that will allow them to provide for themselves and help to provide for their families! Blame women for the fact that the cost of living is so freaking high in many parts of this country that supporting a family that includes kids on a single income is becoming more and more difficult to do.

Also, the whole environmental awareness thing is really just a conspiracy to make abortion sound like a good idea. Yup, the Family Research Council send out an email on Earth Day (April 22, 2008) saying:
"Today isn't just another reminder to use recycled paper or drive energy-efficient cars. It's a calculated attack on the sanctity of human life. Population control is inextricably linked to the environmental and abortion movements. [...] The crisis du jour is global warming, but even that is just another excuse to fund "Planet" Parenthood and similar groups."

Yup, they figured it out - the whole thing is a plot by feminists to make abortion sound like a good idea. All those "facts" about pollution, landfills, contaminated drinking water, shortage of natural resources and overpopulation - it's all lies. Nevermind that the price of gas is soaring - it's all lies.

Wearing headlines? Seriously?!? I have heard of shameless self promotion before, but that takes the cake!

If men stayed home and grew food in their field that would help cut down on polution too. Right? Assanine.

I saw those headline T-shirts, too, and I thought "WTF?" Unless it was a really funny headline or something, who would want a T-shirt that said, "Man fined $450 for overstuffed trash bin"?!
