Darius I met some Americans and they were smart, intelligent, well educated ordinary ppl. That's how I know.
You meant the ones who have the zeal to travel, to learn and develop. I'm not sure that these are people representative of the majority.
I know also if you talk with some polish trade school graduatee you would be shocked how dumb ppl can be
You haven't met an American, what they call, high school dropout
. For that matter, speaking with many American high school
graduates you would inevitably reach conclusion that the "high" in the school's name stands for getting high on drugs.
