But most here aren't interested in addressing it.
They're against the program itself, and Obama.
I would be happy to examine actual information. Discuss ways to prevent fraud.
Not cheer what is likely a dishonest video from a known liar as "proof" of something.
The problem is that the entire plan is FUBAR. Spun way out of control. Nothing you discuss is going to matter. The underlying objective of Obama is to get more folks dependent on government redistribution, which is exactly what this is. The abuse was horrifically enabled when expanded to cell phones. And then it was like Christmas to harvest more dependency.
Jeezus Christ. In four years Obama has increased food stamp rolls from 30 mil to over 48 mil. The Obama Admin has run ads in Mexico, in Spanish, to explain how to qualify for food stamps once they swim the river. Get here. Get dependent. And then vote for more.
He eptiomises deceptive persuasive messaging.
His videos are inflammatory, but deliberately misleading.
I'm frankly dismayed so many take what he says at face value.
There's a TED talks about why we won't admit we're wrong. Part of our hard wiring.
So scum like O'Keefe tell lies, knowing once someone buys into one, their hardwiring will cause them to refuse to accept that they have been lied to.
Cognitive Neuroscience. How we process information, decide what to believe, our relationships to language.
Hard science about what makes us "tick" used against us by those who understand how we come to believe things on a fundamental level, using that knowledge to convince us of what their customers want us to believe.
Its not brainwashing, but accurate estimates of the percentage who will be swayed can be determined.
And while some countries actually license its practitioners, and hold them to strict standards of what is acceptable, there is no regulation at all in the States. Even though lying is becoming more and more scientific.
