    I thought he might mention that Gutzon Borglum was a big KKK guy. In fact he was hired to carve a Klan/Lost Cause icon on Stone Mountain where the 1915 Klan started but the project was never finished.

    Some reporter out there, next time you interview the president, ask him if he ever thought about adding HIS face to Mount Rushmore and see what he says. Then letโ€™s see what reporters, Fox reporters, and people that (somehow) still support this president, say about this manโ€™s sanity level. Just try then justifying this guyโ€™s mental capacity.

    People who know a lot dont always tend to analyze a lot. They are very different qualities. People who analyze dont know a lot off the top of their head but they do know if somethings sounds right or wrong. And people who do know a lot tend to just parrot whatever it was they learned. Even if what they learned was wrong, misleading or just not showing all of the context.
    "Fuck me? Fuck you!" can mean different things based on your environment or who you are with. It can be sexual or it can be defensive. Basically an analyzer will run the same idea through his/her head with a bunch of different variations and try and figure out which one sounds the best for the current situation.
    Both of the qualities take a lot of brain power so its hard to find people who do both effectively. But those who tend to specialize in a skill like carpentry, art, cooking etc. can use both those qualities on that specific skill quite well because specializing in something narrows down the information to learn and to analyze. And if you have noticed in someone who specializes in something, they tend to not know a lot about too much outside their field. Not stupid or anything but as much as the average person would know.
    Basically what I am saying is after watching his show, he has been right and wrong. More wrong when it comes to politics, society, psychology and basically things that deal with people.

    1923 - The idea is suggested by Jonah "Doane" Robinson, secretary of the South Dakota State Historical Society.
    October 1, 1925 - Mount Rushmore is dedicated as a national monument.
    October 4, 1927 - Work begins on the monument. The sculptor/designer is Gutzon Borglum. Four hundred workers sculpt the monument using dynamite and drills. Workers use much smaller models (about one-twelfth the size) to envision the final product.
    July 4, 1930 - The section of George Washington is dedicated.
    June 10, 1933 - Franklin D. Roosevelt issues Executive Order 6166, making Mount Rushmore part of the National Park Service.
    August 30, 1936 - Thomas Jefferson's section is dedicated.
    September 17, 1937 - Abraham Lincoln's section is dedicated.
    July 2, 1939 - The Theodore Roosevelt section is dedicated.
    March 6, 1941 - Gutzon Borglum dies. His son, Lincoln, completes work on Mount Rushmore.
    October 31, 1941 - Drilling on the monument is complete. It only takes six and a half years of actual work on the monument, but the Great Depression slowed down its completion due to lack of federal funds.

    1:17 How about the beef with Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr? Him trying to run against Burr and Jefferson ended in a duel with Hamilton getting SHOT by Burr! Imagine of all political skirmishes ended that way!
    6:10 I think if Andrew Jacksonโ€™s face was on Mt. Rushmore, the Native Americans would have blown it up by now.
