I agree with that. When you ask for facts, to many that's an easy ask. What are the stats, numbers, what does the intel say, etc. But many times you get that suzi says this or that. It's not bad to agree with someone, but you really need to see what the facts are to get away from what you "feel," to what you "know." Two separate issues. There's a lot of CDS (Conservative derangement syndrome) here. Here as in other places, the attitude is that if they disagree with someone, you're automatically a Trumpster. It's pretty much out of ignorance. I don't think people are stupid, but incredibly unknowing about the subjects. I'll usually check for facts (although they're open sourced) support before I post.
Isle keeps reminding me of that canadian guy that was an expert but would never cite anything, so it was always an "opinion" stated as "fact." I've been trying to figure out his name...
