New York City Mayer Michael Bloomberg claims that some members of Congress are so ignorant that they do not own a passport, and wants Americans to stop blaming foreigners (mainly China) for their country’s hardships.

Bloomberg: Congress ‘Can’t Read’ And Some Members Don’t Know What, Or Where China Is
When things go bad, many of us try to place the blame on something / someone. But that something / someone is almost never ourselves, unless it’s undeniably obvious.
With things as complicated as the housing bubble, the national debt, and job creation, things that even college-educated people have a hard time understanding, let alone the average citizen, it is easy to persuade the public that the country’s problems are caused by external forces.
As for Mayor Bloomberg’s comments, I’m sure he was just using a hyperbole to make a point of the kinds of people we are electing to run our country. I can’t really blame him, though, since so many of these officials believe that global warming is false and that God created the world in seven days (and other crazy stuff in the Bible)
