    It's his fanboys who lack the ability to discern such. They are so busy cheering for their "team" they will believe, 110%, anything that agrees with their rage-fueled bigotry. They're like conspiracy theorists, believing every little bit and piece of anything that will forward their slander of the "other", except they are motivated not by insane levels of paranoia but insane levels of "us vs. them" and a seething jealousy of the rich.
    I dunno about that....when the other side is preaching this....

    In its 2012 platform, the Republican Party of Texas rejected the teaching of "Higher Order Thinking Skills... critical thinking skills and similar programs," giving as a reason that this sort of teaching has "the purpose of challenging the studentís fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority."...

    ps. Why do you put critical thinking in quotes? Do you think it's not a real thing? hahaha
    I just thought it strange that you would accuse someone for not using critical thinking and then rant about Chompsky who always encouraged people to use critical thinking....

Begin by taking a skeptical attitude toward anything that is conventional wisdom. Make it justify itself. It usually canít. Be willing to ask questions about what is taken for granted. Try to think things through for yourself.Ē - Noam Chomsky, MIT professor, author, and activist

    I have no problem with the CIA doing it's duty and having a file on the guy. They are after all an intelligence gathering operation. However, they should never be the ones to take action if they find something criminal or espionage related.
