How the World Sees Us

I like to watch BBC News.  It gives me an unfiltered view of US politics and world news, free from the lens of US political interest.  The antidote to too much Fox News and MSNBC.
It is nice to see how the world views us, even when most of the times that view is unfavorable.

But this next item might be too much.

We all know that there are certain states in our union that are populated with mostly idiots. Well one such state, Louisiana is using the Loch Ness Monster and Godzillia as a means of "disproving" evolution.  Now if this home grown idiocy was bad enough, to make it worse they are talking about it in the Scottish press and laughing at ass.

Great.  Now a much of backwards creationist idiots in Louisiana are making the rest of us look stupid.
