  •  They never quote their sources. (0+ / 0-)

    Years back they would say that they heard it on Fox News.  Followed by a snicker and ridicule by anyone who doesn't watch.  They are ashamed to say they get their information from that outlet.  Now they just say "I heard it lots of places" ala "all of them".  Rubio is never going to quote his source (if he has one) because the minute he does free and critical thinking folks will tear it apart.  These people have gone far too long quoting fantasies and conspiracy theories.  We have to stop giving them the spotlight only to have them pass off their feelings as facts.

    It's like I tell my acquaintances --- I am not going to argue over facts.  If you can't quote a source then there's no discussion because you're ill prepared.  You aren't qualified to tell me anything about 'so and so'.  All you can offer me is your factless opinion and that doesn't cut the mustard.  I don't make decisions based on your feelings.  Back it up or STFU.
