Hollywood is good a demonizing various groups that are not 'politically correct', such as conservatives, gun owners, and the religious.
A good friend of mine is an Aeronautics/Airframe & Powerplant instructor at a Junior College in California.
He has to go around to the local High Schools to recruit students. Too frequently the high school counselors are referring "developmentally disabled" students to be aircraft mechanics. The message here is loud and clear- only dummies and retards work with their hands. Think about that the next time you board an airliner or pick up your Benz at the shop.
