  •  Saddest of all, they don't know they're being (9+ / 0-)

    played. They don't know that Fox News' lies are specifically intended to keep them ignorant of TRUTH. They don't know that it's really big business and the Koch Brothers who created and financed the Tea Party (including all those fancy printed signs at rallies - i.e. the ones that weren't misspelled).
    They have been brainwashed and programmed and don't know it, and any attempt to tell them otherwise is met with "Socialist!" "Communist" and various other epithets, even though they have no idea what those ideas really mean.
    They also wrap themselves in the flag, while carrying a bible, and spout their love of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution even though they don't know Thing One about either.
    This is what media consolidation, unfettered corporate greed and the dumbing down of our educational system has brought us.
    I'd be sad if I wasn't so angry!

    Isn’t it ironic to think that man might determine his own future by something so seemingly trivial as the choice of an insect spray. ~ Rachel Carson, Silent Spring ~

      Everything is the fault of the Democrats and they have a Youtube video to prove it. Fox helps them along by putting a D behind the Republicans name whenever they do something wrong.
