    •  It's so alarming, though, that the lines are drawn (0+ / 0-)

      in such a way, that no matter how many facts one presents, it is so easy for them to be dismissed.  They just say we're making it all up, the way they make up THEIR claims.  (Like the claims that Obama has introducted unprecedented tyranny, for instance.)   It seems like it used to matter, who had the most facts and figures on their side, and now it just feels futile.   Don't get me wrong, I love this diary, and am studying its facts and figures diligently.  But the thought that the people who need to swayed by the graphs, will 100% refuse to look at them (even where they actually know how), is a daunting one.
