    with my dad. But usually, there isn't any belief behind why he believes the way he does. I think he looks to people he thinks are smarter than him and parrots their opinions. My dad is not a dumb man, but he doesn't have any intellectual curiosity. I think he has to be able to want to reason out why he believes one way or another to even have this kind of conversation.

    As he gets older, he does this more. I'm a bit worried that he is losing some of his mental faculty and that might be exaggerating the parroting that he has been doing over the past several years. Of course, he could just be a lazy SOB, and if it isn't related to the Indians, Browns or the CAPS, he really has no need to think about it.
