An older blog…but I reblogged this just because. So many stupid people. Not naming any names. I am reading a book today and it’s called “13 Ways to Kill a Community.” Book review to follow. But I think, in reading the first couple chapters, I have realized that at the very basic levels of government (local, regional), the majority of people (smart included) just don’t want to be involved. So they let others take over. And then we whine when we find ourselves governed by those who have more charisma than integrity. Just a thought. I still have to finish reading the book.

Whether it be the stupid idiot who gets drunk and thinks it makes him a better driver, or someone in a company who has been promoted well beyond his or her level of ability just because the number of years of service he or she has accrued, or one of those despicable ‘jobs-worth’ morons you inevitably find in bureaucratic government non-jobs, their stupidity poses a danger to the rest of us.
If you were a real optimist you might be forgiven for…
