First off, I don't think Americans are "stupid". I think they're geographically iggnorant, affected by the media to a higher degree then other nations, given a bad education, and much more...

If you regularly watch shows like 60 Minutes or 20/20, you've probably seen videotaped footage of college kids being asked challenging geography questions:

John Stossell: Can you point out Japan on this globe?
Booze-addled sorority girl: Is that it? (giggle)
John Stossell: That's Nigeria.


So why are they so "stupid"?

2.Lazy parents
3.nonsense in our schools

Are Americans stupid? Not all, just most...
