Kids! They say they darnedest things, don’t they?!?


Things, apparently, like, "The U.S. government is a well-functioning legislative body!”

Highlights magazine polled 1,265 readers and discovered that a whopping 70.5 percent of children "believe in the ability of government leaders to tackle most of the country’s problems” (compare that to their jaded elders, who give Congress only a 14 percent approval rating). The youngest children surveyed were even more enthusiastic, 81 percent of whom are confident in our leaders’ problem-solving abilities.

People are seriously expecting some sort of educated, worldly answer from the target audience of this?



Might as well ask them what they think of quantum physics while you're at it.

Show me a young Conservative and I'll show you someone with no heart. Show me an old Liberal and I'll show you someone with no brains.

Easy to be idealistic when you have no responsibilities.

Well, I'm going to start teaching my kids today that adults can't be trusted to take care of problems.

Stupid young kids, that's the last time I ask them for their retarded opinion.

Not surprisingly the study also found that 70.5% of children eat their own boogers.

Imagine that.  Young children believe that grown ups can take care of themselves.

As witnessed by the last election 54 or whatever percent of voting adults were some dumb mothers.

Are these the same kids that believe in Santa Claus?
