Anti government blindness
My sister’s best friend in Oregon likes to send out anti-government email. She used to put the addresses in the to field until I started using reply all to answer her! That royally pissed-off some of her friends, who couldn’t deal with any actual facts.
Anyway, she just sent out the following email:

Here’s a clickable link to the article
I answered her
People like you just amaze me. You send out an article about how large agri-business is using gov't to hurt small farmers and then you blame ... wait for it ... government! You apparently don't even see the corporations that are the real danger to small farmers. The people who commented at the end of the article have it figured out a lot better than you do: they know who to really fear: large corporations. Tester and Hagen are members of our government who are trying to help small farmers, but that part of government gets no credit from you at all. You are simply blinded by your biases and incapable of seeing where the real danger lies. -- ge
She immediatly answered me, having understood nothing
The danger lies with our Govt....Wake up George...
