    Then how did they get the "death panels" thing wrong?

    Agreed. In fact, a shocking 1 in 5 Americans that believe President Obama is a muslim (while those who are "uncertain" rising from 36% to 43%) is a valid example of how informed people are.

    Exactly. Misinformation dies a hard, slow death and too many havelearned how to use this to keep the people upset and ill informed.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The reason for that, so many people WANT to be misled and ill informed, as long as it is about people they don't like in the first place.
    There are several ways to describe people like that...none of them nice.

    How many would think Obama is a Muslim IF he had not had a Mother who Married 2 Muslim Men (one of whom may be his biological father) in between numerous other arrangements with others. If he hadn't been living in a Muslim Nation from 1967 thru 1970 and listed as Muslim at school by Step Dad and hadn't later (like age 19) traveled for awhile to Pakistan and other places on a passport that has yet to be produced.

    Lots of people are born in one religion and change to another...there is no law against it.

    I think you're correct about that. Seeking affirmation on one's world view, and willingly suspending any disbelieve in order to have that affirmation certainly contributes to the problem. And with people making money meeting that need, and well, you have where we are today. A very sad place all and all.

    I know people who went to college for 4 or more years, and came out of the experience just more fixed in their prejudices. If all we listen to is people who think the same way we do, we don't learn much. I have offered books to a few hard headed types over the years, and a few refused them. They don't want to know THE truth, they like THEIR truth too much to see it challenged.
