That all could be true, but dummies actually sometimes line up their genes right (by accident) and produce a smart kid. And smart kids can be reached before they start the stupification process with drugs and alcohol, sometimes.

Actually, the intelligent have a slight inherent advantage because under a certain IQ range, people forget to vote, can't find their way to the polls, or are not allowed to leave the facility.

The one thing missing from Idiocracy was the secret intelligensia running everything behind the scenes. I remember one SciFi book where time travelers find a word filled with simpletons but the bathroom attendants were actually highly intelligent and running everything, keeping the fluffies safe much like we watch out for infants.

Jeff Sessions' self-defeating prophesy...

Jeff Sessions is trying out an all out assault on Marijuana use, and it is driving Republicans nuts... They realize (and he doesn't) that the best way to keep liberals from voting is to get them stoned.

Serious question: If you're dropped from the voter rolls for not voting, you can re-register again, right? Hmm

I got the gist from this article that once you're dropped, you're dropped for life.

That can't be true, right? gobsmacked

It's not true for all, just those who can't meet the new, arbitrary standards. Try finding your birth certificate if you're a refugee, or were born a sharecropper.

All you have to do is get on a bus and go to the state capital, walk to the Vital Records Department, wait for hours until your number is called, and then proves you are who you claim. Acceptable ID is a birth certificate...

Otherwise, you can bring five citizens with ID who can swear you are who you say.

And Arpaio is running for Senate... It'll be a contest of the crazies: Kelli Ward or Joe Arpaio? Poll: Arpaio statistically tied with McSally in GOP primary for Arizona Senate - the Hill.
