Fred is the Man

Fred Reid is at it again. From his latest post, discussing the rationale behind universal suffrage in the United States:

"The second reason is that, in principle, the idiot vote will keep idiots from being maltreated by the bright. It does not, however, keep the bright from being maltreated by idiots, who are far more numerous. They run the schools, for example, which is why students often can’t read after twelve years."

Priceless stuff, vintage Fred. Not for the faint-hearted. Read the whole thing here.


  1. Thanks for pointing this guy out — I'd never heard of him before, but I've just spent the last half hour laughing out loud.

  2. Fred does have a way with words, doesn't he?
