  •  What we are dealing with... (0+ / 0-)

    I don't talk politics with people on Facebook for a reason.

    I said, as part of a lengthy response to someone else attacking Obama and socialism:

    "Oh, and maybe the fact that the United States of America tortured dozens of individuals"

    She took it to mean that I had said that Bush tortured Americans. Or that I was accusing him of such torture.

    Really? How does what is in quotations in any shape of form come out to "George W Bush tortured Americans"?

    That, my friends, is what we are dealing with. Individuals who cannot even read a sentence and correctly identify the subject, verb, and direct object of said verb.

    What a sad day. But it may go a long way towards understanding how these people can believe such absurdities.

    To whom it may concern: I am an American citizen. Not an American consumer. I am a human being, not a variable in the capitalist system.
