It is said that ignorance is bliss. And if there is any truth to be found in that line from Thomas Gray’s poem, nowhere could it be found better than right here in good old Clark County Washington.
As we know, ignorance is essentially a lack of knowledge on any given matter. It’s pretty much what would be found where objectivity is nonexistent and the pabulum of bias prevails as people become too lazy to seek accurate knowledge and place unwarranted trust in those they believe are the best to lead them for any variety of reasons.
Such thought was summed up by the father of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin when he claimed, “The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.”

In typical Rep. Jim “sue your constituents to invalidate their votes,” Moeller (D. Portland/Vancouver) fashion, once again he shows his total lack of knowledge in encouraging a boycott of the coming Moscow Winter Olympics for Russia’s stand on homosexuals.
For Jim’s information, 1974 was the year Richard Nixon resigned in disgrace and Gerald Ford became president, only to be defeated by Jimmy Carter in the 1976 election.
Carter was inaugurated in January 1977.
He initiated a boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, not over “basic civil rights,” but due to Russia’s invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 to urge them to leave the country, which they did not do until 1989, some 10 years later.
That boycott failed and saw the Soviet Union boycott the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles out of revenge.
Either Moeller is ignorant of historical facts, which is very likely, or more likely is another liberal trying to rewrite history to suit his pro-homosexual agenda since the facts are easily found: http://history.state.gov/milestones/1977-1980/Olympic

In typical leftist knee jerk fashion, some moron in New York at The Journal News decided to help curb gun violence, they would produce a list of all licensed concealed carry permit holders and place them on a map, letting any and all see just who in New York’s Westchester and Rockland counties owned a gun in their neighborhood.
With no thought of burglars also pick up and read newspapers, a representative of the paper said readers “are understandably interested to know about guns in their neighborhoods.”
The utter ignorance of such an act cannot be understated and the paper has been hearing the outrage from citizens, both those that own guns and others who don’t ever since they published the list shortly before Christmas.
