How easily the public is manipulated

Posted by  ▪  April 1, 2012
How sad is it for us as a society that Al Sharpton, of the Tawana Brawley hoax and Crown Heights/Freddy’s Fashion Mart riots, is leading protests calling for civil disobediance if George Zimmerman is not arrested immediately (and then will call for civil disobedience if the charges are not serious enough, or…

Romney’s been down this tax return road before, and it’s a dead end
