    I get these messages (via e-mail) on a regular basis from family members. I debunk them, they don't care, and tomorrow, another one comes... sometimes a repeat of an old one.

    People believe what they want to believe. This is so strong that they'll continue to believe it when faced with unequivocal evidence to the contrary... sometimes, the best I'll get is "well, it might be true..." or "well, it sounds like it's true", and that's good enough for them.

    The really sad thing is that months after the incident, all the details are forgotten, and all that's remembered is an association, like "Starbucks = unamerican", and they don't even know why they think it.

    Freedom isn't free. So quit whining and pay your taxes.
