    of my family:  congressional pay raises.  The president has, by executive order, raised the pay of government service (GS) workers and congress, to take effect in March of 2013.  My family is outraged, although they know next to nothing about this pay raise (how much it is, whose pay is being raised and why it was done).  They insist it was done to give the Democrats, and especially the executive branch employees, more taxpayer money for "following Obama's marching orders."

    There is no reasoning with these people, no point in giving them facts.  If the facts don't comport with their pre-conceived notions, they refuse to accept them as true.  Why do I continue to talk respectfully to these people?  Because my mother has told me she would be mortified by my refusal to do so - that is the ONLY reason.
