#MakeAmericaSmartAgain Read about Benedict Arnold

In the revolutionary war, Arnold "turned coat" against the Americans, and essentially joined the British, thus being called a traitor to his country. 

But the story isn't quite as simple as that, and is worth a read.  He did attempt to aid the British by turning over West Point, where he held the head post, and then snuck out of New York.  He ultimately made his way onto a British ship and sailed to England where he lived out the remainder of his life.

The lame list

Stupidity is something I can not tolerate. Here is my current list of dopey attitudes that chafe me. Don’t be stupid. Don’t be one of these:

  • Anti-science
  • Flat earther
  • Faux patriot
  • Blind supporter of anything, or anyone
  • conspiracy theorist
  • Doubt the Moon landing, or call it a hoax
  • Anti-vaxxer
  • Believe in a deep state
  • Pretending to understand something that is enormously complicated, and just oversimplifying it
