    will people like your SIL tolerate before they realize its their own idols who are doing them the most harm?

      Not kidding.  Doesn't matter how much evidence you show her, she's not changing her mind.  A couple of years ago, Beck had said something particularly outrageous.  I told her about it, she denied it, I showed her the video of it on YouTube.
      I'll never forget the look she gave me - utterly calm and unruffled.  "Obviously it's a plot by Democrats to make him look bad.  They spliced this to make it sound like he said that".
      Republicans are the Moral Party.  That's all she needed to hear for the rest of time.

        He's 51, a decent waiter and/or bartender, but other than that, he has no skills. He's been unemployed all year, lives in Section 8 housing, and gets unemployment. (He qualified for Section 8 even when he was employed.) I've "loaned" him money a couple of times and even gave him my old car last month when my wife bought a new one. I also gave him money to pay the taxes on it.

        Yet all his problems are because of Obama and those damn liberals.
