Poverty in America: part 2

So, I broke the news to my sister-in-law that the article she kept waving in my face was distorted, innacurate, largely false and came from a partisan shill of a source.

It mattered little.

She admitted to this: whether it's untrue or not, she still believes it. She fell back on anecdotal evidence, and when I pointed that out, I was greeted with more "faith-based" logic.

That's scary. She has more faith in what she believes to be the truth than what the actual truth might be. That's disturbing to me. More disturbing is that she isn't alone in her neo-con camp.
