If You Believe

If you believe that:

… 9/11 was an inside job
… Obama was not born in Hawaii, despite a birth announcement in the Honolulu Star Bulletin
… the 2nd Amendment was written to ensure that poorly endowed men could carry assault weapons around children
… the 1st Amendment means you can’t get fired for calling your boss an asshole
… science is a conspiracy (i.e. global warming, mass extinctions, evolution, vaccination, etc. are liberal conspiracies)
… the Nazi Party was “Left Wing” because its name contained the word “Socialist” (fun fact: the official names for several Warsaw Pact nations, China, and North Korea all contained the word “Democratic”)
… you, personally, will survive a destruction of society (ala, you are a “Doomsday Prepper”)

then your attachment to reality is too tenuous for you to engage me in a discussion on politics or science. Please do not ever broach either subject to me.

Thank you.
