Truth will set you free...

The local radio station just reported on a poll done by a local university revealing 30% of residents west of the (Missouri) river, and 35% of residents east of the river believe glow bull warmen is real.

Left unsaid, is that 70% of west river, and 65% of east river do not believe glow bull warmen is real.

So, here we have a real time example of the main stream media obsession with making glow bull warmen a staple of life.

It has been shown that people do not follow statistics, per se, but instead remember what was connected with the numbers.

See, the news covers glow bull warmen, as if it is a slam dunk.

How much different the public mindset would be if the news stated the information in the positive rather than the negative.

If you tell a lie long enough and often enough people will begin to believe it.
