Default misinformation

Poll: Only a third of Americans say Obama is Christian; almost one in five say he's Muslim – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs

This shows how effective the republican misinformation machine is. And it's pretty sad, one because people are stupid, and two because who cares if he is a muslim (or as retarded southerners say muslin).

Just look at the birthers movement, they won't be stopped until the see a zapruder film of the actual birth in a Hawaiian hospital.

It's really a very small group of people that are interested enough in staying abreast of the world situation and developing stories, taken from multiple news sites for some objectivity and then discussed on a forum such as this. Most people just don't have the time or inclination, especially with the economic situation, they just want to make sure they have a job and roof over their head while they save up for that new big screen tv.

frankly if religion is so important that you need to know the belief system of another person, then you are an idiot.

quit looking for reasons to like / dislike somebody, make up your own frikkin mind and indulge in a bit of common sensical, social responsibility when living your life.

fucking god botherers give me the squits.

incidentally, perp, how the hell are you? is there a chance of my earning your contempt again some time soon?

I'm doing good, had my best year snowboarding last year as far as progression and days on the mountain, can't complain really. How's the good ol' US of A treating you? At least I imagine at this point you have moved over to this side of the pond?

As far as contempt, not very likely. I kind of laugh at my old self and how much I actually cared about other people's opinions, silly really, I chalk it up to just another folly of my youth. Besides in retrospect, you made me consider more about events and situations than the few that really got my ire up so it was definitely more positive than negative. But it still helped to pass the time at the job I hated, and that's all that mattered.

Nice to see things don't change much, that Tony guy is good for some laughs.

It would be funny if it wasn't so frightening. In a country where elections have become a popularity contest, if the majority is becomong this stupid, we are all doomed.

not so much satire, as genuine political policy?

i imagine 20th Century is independent of the news network, although both are based entirely in the realms of make believe!

Thanks wolf. I hadn't heard of that one. Will try and pick it up somewhere.

I find it funny that in the US the whole right to bear arms is still held so strongly but the whole freedom thing has just fallen away? How did that happen?
