    Whether these bits of knowledge are worth believing is another question entirely. If your perceptions are being fooled is not known, but what you perceive is known.
    Some of these assertions are questionable but in general it's saying your experience is what it is.

    Any idea that an experience (or any future recollection of it for that matter) is reflecting an objective 'truth' with a high degree of fidelity is provably false, the simplest example of that being an optical illusion. A more subtle examples would be the kinds of fine motor adjustments people make that occur before they are consciously aware of either the need to make them or the fact that they are making them.

    Moreover, knowing what you are thinking does not imply you know why you're thinking it at a basic level. A lot of thought is reconstructive in the sense that it amounts to the thinker trying to convince themselves they are a sensible being living in an understandable world, interpretable within their frame of reference..

    The hilarious part is that I'm seeing a lot of dems tout alot of BS about a "victory" for CHIP and DACA.

    What keeps not getting mentioned is that they were offered that same deal on Friday and decided to shut the government down anyway.

    I know some Patriots were kneelers at one point in the season. Though that was the week Trump opened his mouth about it and just about everyone knelt.

    I think most teams/players got the message that kneeling during the anthem accomplishes nothing in terms of communicating the message they actually want to communicate.

    Last week I saw the Patriots all stand side-by-side, right hand on their heart, left hand on the shoulder of the person next to them. Not sure if there was a message or demonstration in that or what. Maybe it's just a 'team unity' thing. I only saw it last week, but they don't usually televise the anthem anyway, so I probably wouldn't have noticed on any other week.

    At this rate, Peaceful and Beloved Kim Jong-un could run for US President and probably get 45% of the vote.

    I had it on while I was cooking dinner yesterday. They can't go 8 seconds without using the word "impeachment"

    They were also tickled with themselves for reporting that the FBI lovers texts about a "secret society" was "probably just a joke"

    Since when is "probably" worth reporting as news?

    It's also worth mentioning that they had no source with any familiarity with the situation making that determination. They had no clue what the joke might have been about, or why it was supposed to be funny. They just spent 15 minutes roasting republicans for seeing monsters under the bed.

    Trey Gowdy told Fox something like "I'm an investigator, and when I see people talking about "secret society", I'm compelled to ask them what they meant"

    There is no accusation or innuendo whatsoever in that statement. There isn't even a hint of suspicion. He's just stating a fact about the evidence he was given, and that his job is to follow up. Factual, measured, professional. Yet CNN played that clip as if he was some crackpot conspiracy theorist chasing ghosts.

    Advertising dollars and political influence are the incentives. Everything else just follows from that.

    I've seen others. The best one so far asked Bernie supporters to comment on Trump policies, except the policies they cited were actually Bernie's.

    This is the typical misinformation campaign that the oppressor uses in an effort to take advantage of disadvantaged people to try to discredit the fact that they are oppressed by a society that systematically cuts them off at the knees at every opportunity.
    Resist.

    Stormy Daniels is going to "tell her story"

    I can only imagine her story is "I'm a slut who fucks rich guys"

    But there is a more interesting story here. After two years of incessant and downright nasty media bullying, Melania is about to become the most sympathetic figure in America.
