10. That someone is busting their ass for reform doesn't make them all-knowing.
At least that's one of the lessons I'd derive from a basic logic class.

If you read those guys really closely on this Connell Spoonamore thing, you'll realize that often their headlines say one thing, and the article, another.

People can believe what they want. I believe the 2004 election was stolen. And I don't need MCM, Fritakis, or Arnebeck to hold that notion dear.

And when a headline calls Connell an election rigger, as Fritakis just wrote, and the article says Connell COULD HAVE rigged the election, I call Bullshit.

In fact, I'll go further. I'll call Fritakis a blow-hard who writes misleading headlines that make idiots out of the people who repeat them instead of critically examining them.

And that, for some, will be reason enough to consider me an infidel of sorts. I'll get over it, like junior high school.
