What People Who don't Fact Check, Believe....

This is an example of emails I get from family in Oklahoma. I got this one yesterday.

**********************************************************************

A New Direction Means What?

*The Democrats' new promise "A New Direction For America - Vote Democratic" **

**The stock market is at a new all-time high and America 's 401 K's are back. A new direction from there means, what?

**Unemployment is at 25 year lows. A new direction from there means, what?

**Taxes are at 20 year lows. A new direction from there means,what? **



**Federal tax revenues are at all-time highs. A new direction from there means, what? **



**The Federal deficit is down almost 50%, just as predicted over last year. A new direction from there means what?



**Inflation is in check, hovering at 20 year lows. A new direction from there means, what? **



**Not a single terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11/01. A new direction from there means, what? **



**Osama bin Laden is living under a rock in a dark cave, having not surfaced in years, if he's alive at all, while 95% of Al Queda's top dogs are either dead or in custody, cooperating with US Intel. A new direction from there means, what? **



**Several major terrorist attacks already thwarted by US and British Intel, including the recent planned attack involving 10 Jumbo Jets being exploded in mid-air over major US cities in order to celebrate the anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. A new direction from there means, what? **



**Just as President Bush foretold us on a number of occasions, Iraq was to be made "ground zero" for the war on terrorism -- and just as President Bush said they would, terrorist cells from all over the region are arriving from the shadows of their hiding places and flooding into Iraq in order to get their faces blown off by US Marines rather than boarding planes and heading to the United States to wage war on us here. A new direction from there means, what? **



**Now let me see, do I have this right? I can expect: **

**a.. The economy to go South **

**b.. Illegals to go North **

**c.. Taxes to go Up **

**d.. Employment to go Down **

**e.. Terrorism to come **

**f.. **Tax breaks to go Out **

**g.. Social Security to go away **

**h.. Health Care to go the same way gas prices have gone.



**But what the heck! I can gain comfort by knowing that Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Edward Kennedy, Howard Dean, Harry Reid, and Barak Obama have worked hard to create a comprehensive National Security Plan, Health Care Plan, Immigration Reform Plan, Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan, Abortion On Demand Plan, Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How to Return all Troops to the U.S. in The Next Six Months Plan, A Get Tough Plan, adapted from the French Plan by the same name and a How Everyone Can Become as Wealthy as We Are Plan. Oh, and I almost forgot the No More Katrina Storm Plan. **



**Now I know why I feel good after the elections. I am going to be able to sleep soooooo much better at nights knowing these dedicated politicians are thinking of me and my welfare. **



**Please pass this good news along to all of your friends so they can also feel better.**

Read between the lines Wease, these people all support the resource wars. They'll tell you they don't believe in peak oil, but they are deathly afraid of running out of gasoline. It's all just lies, nobody could be stupid enough to think the repugs are honest. Read between the lines, xians love war, and are afraid. The Bible says fear not, that's how I know they're full of it, because they're scared. I know these people are kin and all, just saying...

Wow, that's some nasty shit.

Apart from the usual stuff, this part really gets me:

Gay Rights Plan, Same Sex Marriage Plan, Abortion On Demand Plan, Tolerance of Everyone and Everything Plan, How to Return all Troops to the U.S. in The Next Six Months Plan

These things are enumerated as BAD developments. The fact that I support -- unconditionally -- every one of these measures shows the bifurcation of ideology in America today.

Seriously, who's against tolerance???
