There are lots of dumb ideas floating around, and some are dumber than others. My pick of the dumbest of the dumb ideas follow:
1. Pay everybody $70,000.00 annually. Of course, when Dan Price of Gravity Payments decided that everybody would be happy if all his employees received $70K a year, liberals everywhere declared him brilliant, a thought leader, and his model would be the stuff of Harvard case studies. 3 months later, almost nothing is working out like Dan Price figured it would: his brother who was a principal of Gravity Payments sued the company, many of his clients withdrew their accounts, and lots of higher skills employees quit because the janitor who dropped out of 3rd grade was making the same pay as those who slogged their way through MBA's at the University of Washington. Who saw this kind of backlash coming? Well, just about everybody who isn't a brain dead liberal did. Duh.
2. Make a deal with Iran. Yes, it is a brilliant move to remove sanctions against the world's leader in exporting terror, freeing up oil sales on the world market, allowing about $150,000,000,000 (that's 150 BILLION dollars annually) to flow into the mullah's coffers; money to fund world-wide terror in perpetuity. And in an effort to stall the mullahs getting a nuclear weapon, allow only Iranian inspectors to verify nuclear free military sites and report to the world that they are indeed in compliance of the accords. What kind of morons would do this? Well, that would be the Obama administration, the smartest people in the world. Right.
3. Hillary Clinton decides to use private email servers in her position as U.S. Secretary of State instead of the mandated, relatively secure government servers. Of course, Hillary is touted as the worlds' smartest woman. Now the fact that she used these unsecured private servers to process classified TOP SECRET intelligence reports has surfaced. And these servers were physically located in an unsecured, solitary bathroom in Denver, when we were told by this extremely smart woman (worlds' smartest woman, or so we are told) that she had U.S. Secret Service agents standing guard over these servers night and day. Right. The world's smartest woman sure didn't think any of this through.
Lots of dumb ideas out there, ladies and gentlemen. Lots and lots. I could go on, but I won't.
