Growing up, you think America is the land of the free and home of the brave. As you grow up, though, you find out more about the actual history of America and quickly learn it’s not all as rosy as it seems.
Apart from wreaking havoc on the Native American population, the colonialists also sought to profit and gain as much as they could from the land and surrounding environment. The tiniest silver lining of it is that now we get to make fun of those who clearly have a historic blind spot of continental proportions.
Clearly, the education system in America has failed its people. Celebrities aren't even afraid to say it on the American talk show, "The Chelsea Handler Show", which was obviously hosted by the brash and unfiltered Chelsea Handler, who intimidates just about everyone.
But it's not Americans who are at fault, it's really their government that has slashed funding for schools. That's how you end up with a nation of people who are unprepared for the real world. Or know other countries in it.
If life is all about priorities, America has made it quite clear that it would rather invest in military aircraft than the future of its own people. They've made it so clear that their Department of Defense even posted it on social media for everyone to see.
According to Business Insider, there are at least 15 lawmakers in Senate committees that control US military policy and have financial ties with military corporations. If that doesn't make you think about America's policies, then we don't know what will. Also, a peek into Greek/Roman mythology will show any wi-fi wielding American that Hercules was definitely NOT the angel of death.
Mistakes Were Made
Confidence combined with stupidity equals a deadly combination — one that's perfectly summed up in this post about America's grave history. We find ourselves facing another inaccuracy that's been perpetuated by American ignoramuses.
While most countries had already banned slavery, America was trailing behind and couldn't even make the top ten. Also, in order to ban slavery, you need to first HAVE slavery. Some common sense has never hurt anybody, girl.
Not Even Close
We can blame America for a lot of things, but probably the most notable is the stupidity of its people. This stupidity has led to comments like this being featured all over Reddit threads that are entirely dedicated to collecting the stupidest posts of people being so convinced they know better when they were not even close.
It could have been funny if it wasn't so embarrassing. Like, you can literally use the internet to find out it was developed in Europe.
