They Still Walk Among Us

I am speaking, of course, of the more semi-literate members of the Moron-American voting bloc -- those who can actually read a little bit and then hit the "forward to everbody" button in their email programs.

The latest spew of brainless nitrogenous ooze issuing from the wingnuts concerned the sinister changes in Social Security over the years and that it was always -- repeat always -- the Democrats who worked in the shadows to corrupt the "purity" of the Social Security Act.

Which up front my readers know, without my even pointing it out, that this is errant bullshit.

Never mind that these pus-infested drippings invariably come from the Rethug-inclined, i.e., those who "know" that Social Security is nothing more than anti-American socialist-fascist-communist control of a population demographic that otherwise ought to -- and would -- bask, glory and revel in the abject poverty and starvation that used to be the lot of those who had the effrontery to -- horror of horrors -- get old.

Those bastards...

I have neither the time nor the inclination to copy and paste this litany of shocking exposés of the system. If you want to see it for yourself, just drop by the detailed analysis over at Snopes and see it for yourself.

What bothers me the most, though, is that people are perfectly willing to pass this shit on without even attempting to check out the factual validity of it. As long as it fits within their previously-established parameters of "what sounds right must be right", they don't question it.

And these people vote...
