2. I don't know, some people are giving up

I post on a TV board that has separated out the political fans for the sanity of the rest of the board and we have a mix of conservatives of different levels and everyone i generally polite or they get banned for life. Oddly enough every single person in the political thread is for gay marriage, but then we all branch off into different conversations. Some people quote Truthout, some quote newsbusters. today things got testy because Obama wants to stop the military from voting came up meme again. no matter how much a person disproves it, it keeps coming back. When someone cited Snopes as a valid site to debunk it, the other person started on Snopes is a liberal front.

It is frustrating as hell. I finally told them to look up the exact wording in the suit and then come back to me. I swear people select what they believe on the internet and will constantly use opinion as fact, it is damn frustrating.

The frightening thing is how people do not use critical thinking. Lies work, that is why people lie, even blatant lies wear some down.
