    An excellent example of how natural selection effectively culls out the stupid of the species, thereby improving the quality of the gene pool.

    I haven't seenthat of what you speak: Improvement in the gene pool. And there are LOTS (millions upon millions, to paraphrase Carl Sagan) of stupid people in the world, with more being born every day.

    How do you entertain such optimism?

    the reason for that is because the government has suppressed natural selection and keeps protecting people from Darwinism.

    You, sir, have just described my separation from humanity.

    I harbor no optimism for that race, and even refuse to admit to being part of it...

    True, though it was more effective in colonialand earlier times.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    I heartily agree with the "idiot resistant" concept. Although in my experience even that is a real stretch. I can't say more in order to protect the confused 'near' idiots I've encountered.
