This is so sad.
And I am sure it is not limited to just Oklahoma.
We are so doomed.. And politics will continue to make sure that Americans do not get educated.

The coming generations shouldn't be able to breed unless they pass an IQ test.
Make sure stupid people don't breed or else the world will become Idiocracy.

And no one wants that.

It's Abe Lincoln, right? Wait, no, he was the one during WW2...

Honestly though, I never trust these sorts of surveys, I would purposely get all the answers wrong if I knew it wasn't for a grade, cause I'm an asshole like that. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

That's a very scary form of oppression, there. So, who creates these tests?

Well, I don't know too much bout no first president, but this Barack Osama or whatever his name is has no right to be president. Where's his birth certificate?!?! He's not even a citizen or a christian and he's trying to turn America socialist like Hitler or Mussolini or Stalin... making people into czars?

Thanks to TV and for the convenience of TV, you can only be one of two kinds of human beings, either a liberal or a conservative.

Why can't I find women like this my own age?!
That is the smartest and most romantic thing I've heard from a female in a LONG time.

Disagree. Stupid people have every right to breed as well. Scary, scary prejudice, guys.

Look, I'm all for some sort of parenting class or some sort of child-bearing license in our country, but you can't deny people their right to have children simply because they are, in your mind, not too bright. What makes you so smart? Can you tell me how many Angstroms of photoresist is too many during a critical mask layer of a semiconductor process? Or how many times a swallow has to flap its wings to stay in the air? Or, heck, if we're talking about IQ here, what is the determining factor for 'Intelligence Quotient?' Emotional intelligence? Rational intelligence? Intuition? Pattern recognition? And what of that intelligence is the best fit to raise a child.

I hope you guys will take this seriously, because I take it seriously. We want freedom in our nation, then complain that the idiots are taking over. Well, duh. We're a nation of idiots. Oh, yeah, that includes YOU and ME, too. So before you call the kettle black, look in the mirror, pot.

I'll agree with jomama here. If you want to give the government all this power, in this example, over who can breed, remember this: You give them this power when someone you don't like is in power. Imagine Bush, or Nixon, or hell...Hitler, whoever having the power to decide who can have kids, and then try to convince me this should be part of law... Don't get me wrong, I empathize on a certain level. There are a lot of bad parents out there, but you have to remember that once you give the government a power, it's damn near impossible to take it back, and you can't wait until they take it to the next level to cry foul. Ever play chess?
