Generally speaking, we're all ignorant of one or more topic. Discourse, research, and cosmopolitan gossip are sure fire ways of educating ourselves. But lately, and it may be just me noticing it more, people have been watching too much F0X News, associating with Tea Party members, and listening to devout Ron Paul disciples. They purposefully omit facts with pull verbal stunts reminiscent of Pascal's Wager, as if there are only two possible answers to all questions.

@ Ronald - I refer to that as black and white thinking. Wisdom is found in the shades of grey.
