  1. Re: The index of Ignorance- Beyond the name and shame are our politics thus totally stupid?

    I am very skeptic to how this survey was conducted. Because we know that people are very reluctant to select "extreme" choices. And if given a 0-100 scale, then 5 % look very extreme unless you...

    I'll leave the baseless conjecture to you. I stick with tracking Russian ships controlled by Putin-affiliated businessmen which change course and turn off their transponders.
