Crap People Believe
For years, I've been astonished at some of the crap people believe, as evidenced by emails that get forwarded to me by various people and organizations. It seems to have gotten worse, as our nation seems to have become more politically polarized. People see the world through red or blue-colored glasses, and they are willing to believe the most preposterous things if it affirms their worldview. In the past, I've mostly ignored these outrageous emails, but once in a while, I just feel outraged enough to research a response. Now, I figure if I'm going to go to that trouble, I may as well share. Maybe a few other folks will appreciate it.
