  •  My mother couldn't break him before she died (0+ / 0-)

    but got close.

    Since then, he lives quite uninvolved with us and has married into a social scene that reinforces his most insular tendencies.

    The best I can do is raise his ire and let him think about it, he is not the type of person whose mind you change in a short amount of time, despite being highly intelligent and fact-based on many things.  He's also incredibly loyal to people and organizations that may not be his best choices, because he doesn't like to change or admit that he needs to - it looks like weakness to him, I believe.

    He wasn't this way before watching Fox News 24x7.  His extremes were moderated by reality in past years.  Now, when I go to his house, every TV in earshot is playing that channel.
    So, I don't believe it's my job to fully wake him up, as we've gone through those rounds for many, many revolutions.

    It's my job to ensure that he doesn't pollute others to the best of my ability, though.  He told me last night that he needed to watch the debate because he will be a "poll watcher" - I know what that means.  So, I'm going to determine if Democrats have poll watchers to watch his voter subterfuge efforts that he's unknowingly going to attempt.

    "So, please stay where you are. Don't move and don't panic. Don't take off your shoes! Jobs is on the way."
