It's wasted keystrokes and breaths to try to convince a closed mind of the POSSIBILITY of something outside of what Hannity or Maddow tells them to think.
The sad thing is, the same people, in many cases, who are so absolutely 100% positive that what they "know" is right - and everyone else thinking otherwise are loons....are the same people who have yet to read a book, watch a documentary, or read the 9/11 commission report.
In many cases, it's a fundamental issue.
If people think, without a doubt, that government and world leaders (banking, pharma, agri, etc...) have YOUR best interests at the heart of their operations.........and they're to be trusted.
Well....there's no more conversation to have.
I tend to believe that absolute power corrupts absolutely. And money corrupts.
With those in play - anything is possible.
That's great and all. The problem is that these conspiracies don't hold water when tested.
And yes money and power does corrupt. Be sure to add the NRA and gun manufacturers to your list of examples (banking, pharma, agri, etc...)
