Yahoo Top Ten Searches Reflects Ignorance of the Masses
Whether you are on the left or on the right, one thing is clear. If you follow politics, if you are concerned about your country, or are following world events and how they will affect you personally, you are in the minority. Most of the world could care less.
Or at least, most of the industrialized world.
Yahoo listed their top 10 searches for 2009, in order.
I suspect Google's top 10 would be very similar.
The Twilight Saga
Notice a pattern here? All ten searches have to do with activities that allow mental or visual escape from reality.
This tell me several things.
*People either don’t care about the world around them or feel helpless to do anything about it.
*People are basically ignorant.
*Liberals and Conservatives fighting each other over policies and ideology are a small group compared to the masses.
*Obama’s appeal was in great part an “escape” to a lot of voters. They obviously knew little about who he really was…or didn’t care. He and his handlers have known this all along and their strategies reflect this. This is the why of the near-idol status of the first Black president, the Greek columns at his acceptance speech, the Wednesday night parties at the White House, the topless pics at the beach, etc. etc. ad nauseum.
And the Republicans gave us McCain. The anti-idol.
