There Are No Facts!…….
I have had this conversation a couple of times…usually when I quote facts and then someone disputes their validity….by asking how do you know what are facts? How do you know that these are truly facts?
It is easy….A Fact is just the a FACT!
For instance it is a FACT that the Golden Gate is a bridge…it is NOT a FACT that it is a taco…..see how that works? Think that is silly? NO more so than the slugs that argue against facts.
I revisit this issue because of something that I read…..a supporter of Donald Trump said in an interview….
“Well, I think it’s also an idea of an opinion. And that’s — on one hand I hear half the media saying that these are lies, but on the other half there are many people that go, no, it’s true,” Hughes said. “And so one thing that has been interesting this entire campaign season to watch is that people that say facts are facts, they’re not really facts.”
She went on, “There’s no such thing, unfortunately, anymore of facts. And so Mr. Trump’s tweet amongst a certain crowd, a large — a large part of the population, are truth. When he says that millions of people illegally voted, he has some — in his — amongst him and his supporters, and people believe they have facts to back that up. Those that do not like Mr. Trump, they say that those are lies, and there’s no facts to back it up.”
People that do not comprehend the concept of a fact are people that will readily believe a lie to influence their nature.
I stand by my assertion that….a Fact Is A Fact!
My day is done…all have a great remainder of the day….
