Hello World. Welcome to Fending Off Stupid.
Hello everyone, and welcome to my blog. This blog is more or less intended to serve two main purposes: first, as a means for the rebuttal if the vast quantity of misinformation and outright lies that are contaminating our national political discourse, and second, as an outlet for the equally vast quantity of righteous indignation that has been instilled in me by my seemingly self-destructive fascination with those lies.
I find that American politics are fascinating to watch in much the same way as footage of a train accident played in incredibly slow motion, assuming the footage were also accompanied by millions of hours of commentary from a huge variety of sources who know nothing about trains or even the basics of physics.
We are a country full of people who have been shoved into a crappy little box labeled “Democrats Vs. Republicans,” but nobody seems to be so much as looking for the exit, let alone finding it.
My name is Dan Gilbert, and I spend far too much of my time Fending Off Stupid.
