Lynch Pen Get all the facts before making decisions

To the best of my knowledge there is no law against being stupid. If there is no one has used it to incarcerate me for many of my decisions over the years. Mind you that is not an excuse, nor even an admission of guilt, just a fact that how bad or good my decisions were depends on where I made them, who is (or was) the judge of the decision and the final outcome of the event. Maybe we should use a phrase such as “careless in omission of getting all the facts,” but the final analysis says it is stupid to make a decision without having all the information needed to make the best possible decision. Please tell me, is it careless or is it stupid to rush into a decision and overlook information easily available that might have, or should have, affected the final outcome regardless of who does it?
