    When wil the stupidity end?

    I love this country, the United States, don't get me wrong.

    But when will this obsession over idiotic "news" end? When will the public's ridiculous love with "stars" end? When will a 210,000,000 gallon disaster be more important then some idiot like this: How the 'double rainbow' video blew up - CNN.com ?

    I mean come on, this country is falling apart at the seams, and the "next generation" is more concerned about the iPhone G4 antenna not working.

    Man! I never read CNN for a reason, and I read it today for some unknown reason and am so disgusted with what this (meaning CNN) feeds the public.

    If everyone in this country stopped worrying about what clothes some bimbo movie star was wearing yesterday, and actually did something to contribute to this country, we wouldn't begin this downfall that we are sliding into. Our "image" wouldn't be as bad as it is now either!!!

    I hope our currency doesn't start looking as stupid as most Americans are right now, and to be honest, I see why others are beginning to collect a lot of world coins! The U.S. is so set in their ways, we have a hard time changing our currency to remember heroes and leaders.

    Maybe it's because this country is lacking heroes and leaders who should be on new currency?

    Well, they say that "things have to get worse before they get better" and seeing the current state of our country / world leaves me hopeful for the future (can't get much worse). Coins coming out of the mint these days look flat.......some UHR depth would be nice! And as much as I scoffed at the Statehood Quarters, they really did give the people some State pride and much needed patriotism.

    Well put Jesh! I'm always getting upset that we broke from a Ruler type of government just to treat our "famous" like Royalty!
    And your right there just are not enough people in the news to show real leaders and hero's. Just a bunch of lamo's lol

    I hope Travintiques is right and this is the worse before it gets better again.
    We really need to turn this boat around.

    Topics like this are very sensitive and can turn into political battles, very quickly.
    Jesh, I agree with you.

    My generation is filled with the 'I Don't Care Type' and if they do care, it is about something that is worthless.
    It isn't necessarily a matter about being cool either. People are just plain ignorant.

    I could go on for hours on this subject, and at one point or another, I already have.

    You're right, maybe it's best to not get into it too much - I was on a little rant there!!
