Coors, mediocrity, and the rise of Trump

An old post that might explain this election.
"We" get the gummint we deserve.

"Because when you’re set in your ways, you stay true to yourself."
Coors commercial

I'll give the wealthy Coors family this much. They've managed to sum up the crisis in education, in our culture, and in our experiment in democracy in a succinct piece of propaganda.

And they managed to do this by selling mediocre beer at a premium price.

We don't need no stinkin' schoolin'--we revel in our ignorance.

(And we wonder why less than half of Americans accept evolution, the cornerstone of biology.)
