A quick and easy read with links is available at the Daily Caller that looks at some of the fake crimes perpetrated upon the US public. My quick take follows:
It is an amazing thing that so many people are willing to disgrace and in some cases deface themselves in the pursuit of political hay. How people gobble this stuff in the first place is a testimony to how stupid the general public is. I probably shouldn’t be that harsh but really…what’s up with that?
I recognize as much as the next guy,probably more so,that truth is often stranger than fiction. We all do live in a society that has experienced some seriously fucked up stuff. My question if I were to pose one is, Is it purely human nature that we seem to want to believe some of the stuff out there?
I don’t know. Maybe it is all wrapped up in our collective psyche. I for one hope we get enlightened soon and stop falling for every little hyped thing that somehow strokes some preconceived notion within us. That that could happen is perhaps as fake as the stories I’m railing against.
