Oligarchyize



Well, I guess if a word doesn't really exist, you can spell it however you like.

No matter how much leeway you give this guy, the sign makes no sense whatever. He's giving morons a bad name. You should set of a sister site and call it Perfect Idiots With Signs.

Long-time fans of Morons With Signs might be interested this recent New York Times article: http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/20/the-anosognosics-dilemma-1/?scp=2&sq=Ignorance&st=cse

It discusses what’s now called the Dunning-Kruger Effect after the authors of an academic paper that demonstrates how our incompetence masks our ability to recognize our incompetence. Sounds like a tautology but it’s not.

The authors argue that “When people are incompetent in the strategies they adopt to achieve success and satisfaction, they suffer a dual burden: Not only do they reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the ability to realize it.” Among other things, this explains why the bumbling sign carriers caught on this site are invariably so proud of themselves.

Maybe he ment "oligarchy" which is when a small country is ruled by only a few people (like a royal family)?

Well at least he got the "c" in the word "oligarchy," which Beck couldn't figure out. Good to learn from others' mistakes, man.

he was referring to obama making the usa an oligarchy, which believe it or not is actually a true term, but has nothing to do with a ruling royal family but merely a small but influential group of people ruling a country

I was thinking more along the lines of:
Oh
Brother
Another
Moustached
Asshat

But to each their own.
