    Democracy as a system has evolved into something that Thomas Jefferson didn't anticipate.

    On the other hand, stupidity is like death: it only hurts to others.

    True.

    I think part of the reason people are stupid is because of the internet. These days if you look something up in a Google search and get 15 results 5 will say one thing, 5 will say exactly the opposite, 3 will say some crazy shit that nobody in their right mind would believe and 2 of them are trying to sell you something.

    I've always known people were like sheep. They just go with the flock. However now they just be like lemmings, over the cliff to their deaths. At least Lemmings have an excuse cause they have pea brains people don't.

    Really just look at history and it tells you everything. It's just that social media has made it easier for the worst to come out.

    Just think if Hitler had the internet. How much easier would it have been for him to spread his lies and gain converts.

    I wouldn't be so sure. Some people make me wonder.

    Time hasn't run out. History has a way of repeating itself. The way things are going it could happen at any time.

    I hope years from now when I pass on my wife doesn’t sell my fishing gear for the prices I told her I paid for them.
