We all see the news accounts of celebrities and regular Joes engaged in really stupid activities – from drunk driving to substance abuse to other extreme behavior. We all read about the votes cast by politicians and the statements some of them make, based on warped ideas.
We all see the completely illogical statements made by those fighting against legal protections for animals, to shield them from horrible abuse. We can come up with countless examples of people doing really stupid things.
