People who Can’t Do Better rarely listen to the news. They pay no attention to things which capture the public’s attention.
They will watch cartoons or porn nothing a normal person would look at.
This is because those who Can’t Do Better never permit anything that might challenge their intellect or demand attention to enter their ‘realm’.
As they don’t know what is happening they will often pontificate as if they have some special information.
So if you mentioned curfew they will pontificate on curfews ranging all over the place. And why, of course, it could not be implemented here, (although it has)
Those who know them are aware they haven’t a clue what is falling out of their mouths.
Those who don’t know them might be confused and think they are saying something.
