  •  2 Neighbor ladies told me Pres Obama (8+ / 0-)

    ordered fast-food places to stop giving out more than 1 packet of ketchup with meals. Gave same order to school lunchrooms. That is proof of dictatorship.  And they're in their 80's, don't have internet. The conscious and subconscious hatred of having a black pres is ever-present with these people. It is the ONLY thing that explains normally intelligent & functional people believing the stupidest things ever.

    This whole world's wild at heart and weird on top....Lula

      There have been people believing this stuff as far back as I can remember: anti-fluoridationists back in the 50s. If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to watch Dr. Strangelove sometime. Apart from being one of the most brilliant political films ever made, it contains a perfectly accurate portrait of one of these types. And it was made in 1964.

      The black president thing doesn't help, though.
