Published in 1852.   You can read it here online at Project Gutenberg, and I say, what a shockingly bad hat you have.

You don't need a book, just go to a wedding or some other family gathering and if you can't figure it pretty fast, you're one of them.

dittybopper: KoreanZombie: Don't need a book to tell me some ppl are just stupid.   Trump supporters are a clear cut example of that and ppl encounter them daily.

Because people are inclined to believe whatever they agree with

Killary gave the order to stand down and let the Benghazi embassy get massacred?  You know that shrill ball-busting b**ch would do that!  Hysterical women don't know how war works, and she hates the troops and loves brown people.

Obama was actually born in Kenya?  I KNEW that blah guy was illegitimate!  If only we could get people to believe us, we'd have Barry Soetero out in a jiffy.
