"No matter how obvious you make a satire, someone will think you are being serious."
I told my Mom about the DOJ memo the other day, and she has come a long way with her political beliefs, but she still has a gut reflex in support of statism from time to time and said "good, screw the terrorists."
I had to point out that even with the Nazi ringleaders, we didn't just go kill them on the spot, we gave them a trial first.
She was like "oh yeah good point I guess you are right." [headslap]
I still love her.
