The Truth

Subject To Change

While I am not surprised
, I still find it astonishing that right wing media personalities are not throwing themselves off the cliff in shame and sorrow for their foul and reckless promotion of violence as a political solution. What pathetic, vain, weasels they are as they lightly brush off any culpability for the results of their goading, exhortation to uncivil behavior. Arrrrgh!

If the Palin, Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, Beck bunch had a lick of humanity, they would crawl on their knees to the doorsteps of the people they have harmed with their vitriolic clamoring, and beg for forgiveness. Instead they smugly deny having any influence over their followers. Sara Palin, who just last month was bragging about her "bulls eyes", says now that those weren't cross hairs, they were surveyor symbols.

Now I read
that Karl Rove's Tea Party Express is flooding the airwaves with the blatant lie that the gunman is a misguided, liberal, leftist! Holy crap! They have no shame.

Startlingly beautiful color and texture in this tiny rose bud. 1/10/11

That people are
so readily misinformed is attributed to cognitive dissonance.

I read another article that explains how people can ignore facts that don't agree with their beliefs. It is sometimes puzzling to me, until I hear people try to read aloud. Then I find that an astonishing percentage of people, from bums to civic leaders, are semi-literate. It would be real easy to draw erroneous conclusions if ones reading comprehension is only 70 % or less. It is very hard to enlighten those people with facts that they can't understand.
