4. If it hadn't been North Dakota, I'd have guessed it was my sister in Glennbeckistan calling in.

That's how well connected she is to reality now...

6. Im sorry for you.

I listen to his show sometimes when Im feeling masochistic. The callers-in are completely batshit crazy. The bs he spews... his listeners lap it up and regurgitate it all over him. It blows my mind how out of touch they are. He shouldnt be allowed to manipulate peoples psyche the way he does. But ya know, as he says, hes doing "gods work". sigh.

7. Thank you. It's hard to lose family members to this form of legalized insanity.

His cult are so manipulated and fearful, that they reject all reasoning, facts, reality or other views. He tells them to do that since others are now 'part of the problem' or 'the enemy.' Or as the lefty version refers to Democrats, one of the 'sheeple.'

They are evangelists for what he spews, and won't take anything less than fully embracing their (and I use the word 'their' loosely) thinking and beliefs about what is going on. So we no longer speak, even if I try to leave out all public opinion or figures out of a conversation, because she insists that I agree with her fears.

She has decided that all the people on the west coast are part of the global conspiracy and now I am suspect simply because I live out here. My last conversation with her ended up with her shouting at full volume through the telephone:

'Aren't you scared? We can't take another four years of Obama!'
with wild claims about world communism, Muslims and Sharia Law.

I thought her husband, a Vietnam Veteran who always seemed to balance her out, hadn't gone down the path to media induced crazy, and then he said: 'Obama is the worst domestic threat to our country there is...'

'Et tu, BNL,' I sighed to myself and haven't called back as I'm sure I'm the 'enemy' now.

3. Quick! Call the Men In Black. She's an alien from another planet if she's this clueless.

I'm sure other human-made signs are confusing. Now I know why those warning labels with odd pictures are on some products, such as don't use a hair dryer in the bathtub. She may hurt herself before she learns how Earth life forms behave and how dangerous electricity is. She needs help and she's not only walking, but driving among us.

10. Wow

That was a major WTF moment. I was just shocked that this woman really thought the deer crossing signs were for the deer. I did; however, laugh through much of the clip. The moment she said that she had hit a number of deer after passing deer crossing signs I knew what she was going to say and I started laughing.
