Not sure what an "all American inadequate" is.

It may very well be because your box has no windows.

All American inadequates means the total number of incompetent and useless Americans who advertised their condition by voting for a fat, spoilt, posturing clown. Do you have diclionaries in Hicksville, R? Libraries? Books? Well, no, I don't suppose you do, fair play.

Now you are just being hyperbolic.

Don't assume you know what you are talking about.

I merely quote my experience of American political sites. I have never seen such ludicrous ignorance as right-wing Americans display.

Well, I'd say wingnuts generally. Americans of the Jill Stein flavor are just as bonkers as Americans of the Donald Drumpf flavor.

to use a common Americanism: You ain't seen nuthin' yet!

Most Americans can't even name the states which adjoin their own state!

But perhaps one may sum up American idiocy by watching Canadian journalist Rich Mercer interview the Best and The Brightest of America:

BORKED

B.T.O. (Bachman-Turner Overdrive) Lyrics
"Takin' Care Of Business"

[Musical Intro]

You get up every morning
From your 'larm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be

Taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
I've been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out

If it were easy as fishin'
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar
Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows
People see you having fun
Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid
And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day
And we be

Taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
We be been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime

Mercy
Whooooo
All right

[Instrumental Interlude]

Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day
Whoooo

You get up every morning
From your 'larm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be

Taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
I've been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime

[Brief Instrumental Interlude]

Takin' care of business, whoo
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business (every day)
Takin' care of business (every way)
Takin' care of business (it's all mine)
Takin' care of business
And working overtime
Whoooo
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
We be Takin' care of business
We be Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business

[Fades Out]

Homicides in Chicago are WAY down in 2017, as in stark contrast to the Nobama years!

Why? It is a great mistake, since Numan is one of the best-informed persons posting.

Scientists call them avian dinosaurs. It'll take the generation after Gen Z coming of age for the notion of dinosaur extinction to end (birds being dinosaurs was only confirmed a decade ago) but they are still here no matter what old school books taught us all.
