    about this fallacious thinking? At least there seems to be an opening for discussion given the fires.

      She is a birther, and starting to show signs of dementia(she is 82 and there is  a lot of that in my family - seems to hit the Fox News watchers first). Facts, logic mean nothing. What is sad is that she is very fearful about the fires and at the same time, feels nothing can be done.

        I am so sorry--once a person starts to go down that mental road there will be no discussion. Best for your mental health to let it be. Just talk about the stuff that can bring a smile to both your faces. The anger and frustration that a stubborn parent can engender is a great sinkhole down which all good feeling can go.
