"I guess that's one conclusion you can come to as to why there is an abundance of people who are "mentally lazy". On this topic i would like to talk more. I strongly feel that a majority of the population is just stupid but…"

Gerry Evans commented on Taylor Campbell's blog post 'To Offend....Or Not To Offend....'
