Guess they all missed elementary or middle school the day they taught late 20th Century US history. I'll bet everyone of them is a product of public school education....to one failed degree or another.
What city is that guy walking around in?

And apparently never had a holiday on Martin Luther King day. Or, they think we establish national holidays for living people.

I see reasons for BC's viewpoint every time I drive on Massachusetts roads

I'm getting tired of these videos that set people up to laugh at how stupid they are. I'm guessing they interview 40 people before they get one idiot, then they do that over and over until they come up with enough for a video. Proves nothing. Offers nothing.

I would bet that if it was put up to a vote in the Senate for an Obama holiday, it would get through the senate with approval.

In the written captions, the writer makes this statement about such folks:

Quote:
However, if you begin seeking a lesser ignorance on a personal basis, this will encourage those around you to do the same thing.
Suffice it to say that I strongly disagree..............the amount of ignorance, stupidity, and incompetence out there is staggering and is absolutely getting worse as time goes by.

It proves people will watch the videos and think they are a valid sample of society. I don't need a video to know they are out there in large numbers...

x2.

Im impressed they found that many people, but we don't have the slightest idea what this proves. I watch that video and see 8 or 9 idiots. That proves nothing other than there are 8 or 9 idiots that were interviewed.

I don't know a single person who doesn't know who Martin Luther King is. Plenty of people even know who Martin Luther is, let along MLK.

That there are enough airheads wandering around that ignorant is annoying, but in no way is that an example of a people as a whole. Said best above, proves nothing, offers nothing.
