Polls show Amerians smart!
CNN: "More than 7 out of 10 Americans think government spending on the war in Iraq is partly responsible for the economic troubles in the United States, according to results of a recent poll."
For the weirdly sad 28% who think the two are unrelated, a thought problem.... If your waterheater breaks and floods your house and you have to pay to buy a new one AND clean up your house, that's a lot of money you don't have when you need to, say, buy stuff.
Now isn't that easy? And no math!
