From the article: marketing expert Stevens understood he was on the receiving end of a campaign involving a tiny handful of people extremely skilled in making others think dozens were tens of thousands.
Sounds like the entire MSM plus the majority of posts made all over the internet. A handful of people skilled in making everyone else think they are the majority.
I'm surprised we even have a credit rating at this point.... :-(

In the absence of legitimate borrowing with the intention of repayment, perhaps we could just.... print all the extra dough we need.
Excerpt below 1)Germany was saddled with HUGE debts associated with being required to pay for the costs of World War One.
2)In order to service this debt, the Germans resorted to printing money.
3)Because of various articles of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany had almost no industry of her own anymore and had to import a large part of its basic needs.
4)In spite of their complete inability to even service their debts, Germany embarked on a series of social programs, most notably paying workers in the Ruhr Valley full wages while they were on strike.
5)As high inflation took its toll, goods and services became more and more scarce. Very few countries would export goods to Germany in exchange for the German currency and the cost of these goods exploded.
6)As the supply of goods dried up, prices skyrocketed.
U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver's car wash headache is raging once again.
The bank that loaned the Kansas City congressman
(and head of the Congressional Black Caucus)
and his wife $1.3 million in 2002 to buy the Grandview Auto Wash at 12204 Blue Ridge Extension is now demanding payment of more than $1.5 million, after the Cleavers repeatedly fell behind on repaying the loan.
The suit, filed last week in Jackson County Circuit Court, said the demand for repayment came after three attempts to delay foreclosure. Bank of America also is seeking attorney's fees and a receiver to protect collateral.
According to court documents, the outstanding principal totals $1.2 million with interest totaling $240,545 as of March 6. Late fees have reached $54,587. Both Cleavers had personally guaranteed the debts, according to the suit.
The loan was originally part of a Small Business Administration program. It was not clear Thursday how much money, if any, taxpayers will have to provide if the loan defaults.
Gateway Pundit links to reports that Cleaver voted on a bill raising the SBA loan guarantees from 75% to 95% - i.e. that's how much Cleaver could shift to taxpayers. Can we say 'conflict of interest?'.
I respectfully disagree newc. This could indeed be a prophetic sign! A man cornered with no escape or 'way out' can be very dangerous. I'd be perfectly delighted if he left politics and took up the cross.
Hijack the meaning of Easter and replace it with Socialism? What a dark and evil piece of trash Obama is.
Jesus was about to take on a horrific series of torturous experiences even to the point of death as atonement for the sins of those who chose to believe in Him and the Father so that they could experience eternal life after death. The Real Easter message.
Has nothing to do with Obama's destructive policies which are completely opposite and are an afront to many of Biblical laws and statutes. Obama is now gathering together liberal church leaders to give his Socialism a false sense of "Christian" support. The sanme thing Hitler did in Nazi Germany.
Look up what Hitler did to true Christian leaders such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
