Its been going on for quite some time. I'm astounded how dumb the youth of today are. I can't even tell you how many times I've had to help people read a basic tape measure.

Just like "Red Dawn" when "Idiocracy" came out it was fiction. Now it's more reality than we'd care to believe. Food, firearms and ammo boys and girls. The libs have steered us into some very treacherous waters.

I love how evolution contends that mans intellect is ever expanding ie getting better and better when actually the truth is we are getting dumber and dumber. Historically, this is not a good sign. When human prowess and ingenuity show signs of decline invariably, that's when things really go bad. I think we've reached that point.

Yeah sure, we're technologically advanced, but will our accomplishments stand the test of time as have say the pyramids?

Technology is a wonderful thing but when it removes the element of thinking, what good is it. Before we had pocket calculators, digital watches and automated services, people actually had to think. How many people actually know how to make change anymore?

We have all this technology yet nobody in the govt seems to know how to work a calculator with our finances. We're in debt up to our eyeballs and continue spending like a drunken sailor.

I was down the coast yesterday in a small community that borders some of the best fishing in the state. Area is about 100 miles south of Houston and considered pure country. Lots of weekenders and upstate folks have homes and boats stored here.

I had stopped for a few items at a convenience store and was noticing 2 families having a typical Saturday. Family one was local, had a boat trailer behind the truck with a couple dogs. The 2 boys aged around 10-12 were checking the dogs to make sure they had water on this hot day and up in the boat so Dad could hand them ice and drinks to stow away in the cooler. They were obviously familiar with the routine and you could tell the family worked together efficiently.

Family two was obviously from Houston per the school stickers on the truck window. They to were loading supplies in the truck and boat, but with one difference. Dad was doing it all as both boys in this family, about the same in age were on their cell phones. They had a daughter whom I noticed playing a small video game and Ma was off to the side in the shade smoking a cigarette after her trip down without one. Poor ol' Dad in family two was doing all the work.

Kinda tells you how we've gotten into the mess we're in nationally.
