In thinking about the past dozen years that I have been doing this blog, I think of all the individuals I have talked to on a daily basis: face to face. That would be thousands of people. I can only think of a trivial number whose minds I have changed. Those few were largely changed by showing them data about the failure of Global Warming.
That is terribly discouraging. It re-enforces my idea that nearly everyone gets their brains hardboiled by age 23. In my few downer moments I refer to the Lefty-brain-sphincter-muscle as a problem. I saw it just last week. A fanatic Muslim murders 49 gay people, as Islam commands. He yells out to Allah in Arabic and demands to be recognized as a Jhadi. In a few days the gay community I talk to daily has fallen in line with the Democrat absurdity that this was an act of gun violence and maybe the killer was conflicted in his own homosexuality. (Could issues with homosexuality be part of Islam?)
On the positive side, I enjoy talking with people who have a pro commerce orientation. I always learn from these people. I am forced to think in new ways because this blog is daily and you readers are demanding.
