2. Well said!

Would that those who are guilty of the problem are paying attention.

3. I get emails and Facebook entries of the ilk this gentleman talks about

in the video. They are SO delusional and scary sounding that I am certain vulnerable people like his aunt are, in their minds, justifiably rattled. Stress is a great killer and accumulates with the addition of daily attacks via social media and then backed up on MSM. What worries me is how can we fight the misinformation? I can ignore people on Facebook but that is only putting my blinders on to mask the problem. Kudos to this gentleman for calmly stating the problem.

5. Thank you all for your words

It is my hope that by showing the cost of this campaign of fear that more rational minds might put an end to them.

4. Well, right now we are trying to recover from what the bushes did to this country.

When the bushes conned their way into the presidency, we also said to ourselves that whatever the RepubliCONS do we can change. But we still have NOT repealed the uber rich tax give away, recovered from the Great Recession or paid for the war debt. So, yeah you can recovery from a stupid, greedy fools in the white house but it is very difficult.

That said, the man has a valid point in that sending out e-mails to scare the elderly is just crazy.

7. Are you the gentleman in the video? It's a great message and I

wish more had seen it. I don't know if it's against the rules but can a video be posted in General Discussion? I think it would have received more attention there. imho
