These people vote.
Sherri Shepherd on The View recently demonstrated her vast historical knowledge. This is the same Sherri Shepherd who, some time back, could not state clearly if the world was round or flat. One might wonder if she had been reading a great deal of Thomas Friedman except, I do not believe that Classic Comics has, as yet, published his book. I'm guessing that she might hold the entire NASA program as suspect as, I believe, they do have pictures...
She later stated that she got rattled and made an error and concluded that the earth was, in fact, round. Nice of her to clear this up.
But, if ignorance is truly bliss, Sherri Shepherd is one very, very happy person. She recently stated that nothing in human history happened before Jesus. There were Christians from the start.
And the Greeks were feeding Christians to the lions. Abraham and Moses, I guess, came after Jesus and 4000 years of Jewish history bid the world a fond adios.
There is a frightening reality, however. This is not really comedy or as funny as even I would like it to be. Sherri Shepherd votes.
My wife spoke to me about a conversation on the radio. (I do not listen to the radio.)
The radio person was talking to a caller and asking when the birthday of the United States was. She was debating between 1942 or 1922. The year 1776 never came up.
She has the right to vote.
When I lived in Ohio they were voting on a prison levy. One letter to the editor wrote that the country started on July 4, 1776 and, it started from scratch. There were no people in prisons in 1776.... Somehow he missed the fact that Colonial America as under England and very much had life and prisons, etc. Sadly, it was apparent that he was voting.
These people vote.
The question I have is this. Who are these people voting for? And if they are voting for a particular person or party, ought we not be afraid, very afraid?
