I know weird.
Do you sometimes think you are living in an alternate world.
What the hell is wrong with these people?
As a example, I just watch a local weather report where they talked about man made global warming going to kill us all, then when they did the weather report said the temp would be ten degrees below normal until the foreseeable future, and did that without blinking an eye.
It's terribly sad, but human nature is what it is - and history repeats itself over and over again. Mankind will never change. When it comes to politics, the majority of people are followers and are extremely susceptible to appeals to emotion. History is replete with examples of populations living in dire circumstances that continue to support failed parties and politicians almost no matter what.
