    Well, for one thing, they learned from Nancy Pelosi that there is “nothing else to cut” in the federal budget; and that according to Obama “we don’t have a spending problem.”

    The result? 100% of the Vietnamese subjects said “Who watches television anymore? Why not just stream it from Hulu and Roku?”

    @2 I was just thinking that. They probably thought “wow….How a$$ backwards are these American savages…still using televisions tlfor entertainment and propaganda”

    Interestingly, this US government-funded study called the participants “subjects” because they’re living proof of the saying “an armed man is a citizen, an unarmed one is a subject”.
