Super Stupid

Super Stupid

It's moments like this that make you question whether anyone at Fox knows their ass from their elbow.

Needless to say -- maybe not so needless for Fox -- a $1 trillion platinum coin would not actually be made out of $1 trillion worth of platinum.

The dollars in your wallet are not actually worth that much in materials either. They are a representation of value.

These are people who rant and rave about the deficit and the national debt, and they don't even know how money works.

    And your “genius” “president” has created a plan to effectively curve the national debt?

    • Bob Rutledge

      I don’t think the president has suggested bending the debt.

      Oh. You mean “curb”, as in limit. Well expressed, “genius”.

    The stupid! It burns like napalm!

    And to think, these bozos are taken seriously in certain circles.


  • Bob Rutledge

    So, does that mean I don’t have to use $360* worth of paper to write my rent checks?

    [*actually, it’s ¢180,000 (colones) and we pay cash, but what-the-fuck-ever]

    The stupid just never ends with them. Christ.

    It’s pretty embarrassing for Fox and their viewers, actually, that they are so stupid as to fall for this crap.
