So I guess the problem is not just here. Dumbing down the populous may be global.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I was in a store where the bill came to $6.49, I gave the teenager a 5 a 1 and a 50 cent piece.. She looked at the coin and told me it's $6.49, I said yes it's a 50 cent piece you owe me 1 cent.. She told me to wait and actually went and got the store manger because she said I was trying to scam her..........
A Two dollar bills while drive them nuts also.......

I quit trying to figure it out, I bought pop 4X 20pks f Dr.Pepper Buy two get 2 free Ok.... They over charge me so i go to the customer line so they can fix it. She cant figure it out so she Gave me a refund on two 20 packs and my deposit back 10cents a can on all 4. My wife said I would go to hell! I may but I'll have a Dr.Pepper in each hand!! She gave me 8.00 for the deposit and the 2 X20pks free. So now when i take the cans back i get another $8.00!!! I wasnt going to try and correct her, I could tell she was way smarter than me!

Here in CA the schools have eliminated exits examines from High School because the graduation number were so low and making the schools were looking bad for all the tax dollars that are being poured into them........

I'm trying to figure these out.

Sirloin tip roast is twice the price of stewing beef. For four bucks a pound savings I'll chop my own.

Those little cans of soda work out to twice the price of the regular size. Buy the big one and only drink a bit, pour some out, share??

A package of celery (Vegetarian eaves troughs) is $3.00. A package of celery sticks is $4.00. You can get three packs of the sticks from one full pack. Knives are cheap.

The guy in the Dirty Harry movie "The Enforcer" ate celery and died of a bomb blast with a stick of the stuff in his mouth.

That's reason enough for me to avoid it.
