We spend lots of time here, arguing about differing political points of view, and laying blame on everyone but ourselves (which is really where the blame for our current state of affairs lies), and here we have a very bright young lady who has the solutions already clearly laid out of us!

While we're at it we should come up with healthy radiation that way we can, like, irradiate ourselves and it's good for us.

They have slaves in the east. In California, we have unions.

California must have some interesting ways to evaluate who graduates from High School.

Not quite Santa Cruz, but an hour south, and Ive been to Monterey County Supervisor meetings in Monterey and Salinas, and when the Big Sur and general hippie crowd shows up, you get to see comments that are worse than that chic's... There ARE people that stupid.

Heh. Unfortunately, it's not too hard to find people even wackier than that in California.

You sell the slaves to the East Coast and run the unions for the West Coast. You're effectively the mob boss of the labor market.

Oh God … the stupidity … it hurts my brainses!

Someone should put this California-moron and Miss South Carolina-moron on a panel debate against each other. And then put the panel debate in a space shuttle and send it off straight for the Sun.

You can't do that, because the sun is, like, light-years away.

No no no. We* need to see if Miss South Carolina is any good at making cheese toasties first.

* And when I say "we", I mean "I".
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

I guess I don't get it...

Someone took her speech whatever it was, and chopped it up in mid sentence and spliced it back together in a way that made no sense to make her sound dumb...? or am I the only one that noticed that?

You think her speech about vegetable trees was intelligent before it was edited?

It's called unintelligent design.

well since I dont know what it was before editing...or the context, I dont know. I was trying to look past her nervous stuttering and fear of public speaking, for content. Saying something such as "I like food, food is good" is just an effect of someone who isn't used to public speaking.
You arent special. You dont have value just because you were born. You are a net drain on the planet. Respect must be earned & your value must be proven. Endangered species are special, & their survival should take priority over your comfort.

The editing may have highlighted the worst parts and made her look dumber than she really is; but talking about vegetable trees and saying that “out East they have slaves”, that’s not editing. That’s just plain, sheer, mindboggling stupidity.

Yes, but only if it includes lamb chop trees and beer trees as well.
