snopes is trash..again i do not rely on  snopes as a legit source

And Snopes is trash why? Oh, I know: because they actually put effort into telling the truth and nothing but the truth.

For a young guy with plenty of spending cash, Las Vegas is like being a kid in a candy shop.

Lots of sweets to choose from, but you've gotta steer clear of the jaw breakers and all night suckers.

 

Well said.

You need a more reliable source like a random guy who shares your political views on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube that “did his own research”

Hey, if it ain't on Fox News, it has to be wrong, right?

Political views? Do you not think it would be bad for business for a fact checking organization that shares the apolitical facts to swing right or left? What are my political views? Not that I have to tell you, but I will. I am politically unaffiliated. I don't particularly care for Democrats or Republicans, so-called liberals or so-called conservatives, so-called neolibs or so-called neocons. I abhor the current political system in America, but I absolutely have disdain for fascist-supporting simps who are at many times racist as well. I have disdain for people who rail against truth, but devour lies without doing the first bit of research. I hate fascism, and will speak against it at every turn.  If I had my way, people would vote policy over party every single time, indeed parties would be dissolved. I generally think that people whose go-to modus operandi in any thought process or argument is to immediately begin throwing around political labels, or assuming that someone is this or that are basically stupid, and are unwitting pawns of the oligarchs who rule via Plutocrats in Congress (whose goal is to become Oligarchs themselves). 

Believe what you want to believe, but independent journalism, inasmuch as it can be in America, still exists.  Not everything is the truth, and not everything is a lie, but there are organizations that do their best to get to the truth (which is admittedly sometimes a bit tedious to uncover). Snopes and Politifacts are such organizations, whether you acknowledge it or not.

no thats not why, but convincing you would be impossible because they say things you agree with.

That's pretty stupid reasoning as far as I'm concerned, because they divulge information based upon facts they dig up. They are not "saying things [I] disagree with." They are just presenting neutral information. Now if you say that sometimes the truths that they bring up are in line with my general suspicions on a matter, then fine.  But, if you say that they and others bring facts to light that don't disavail my suspicions on certain matters as well, things that I didn't think were in no way true, that were true, then you're absolutely wrong. I could care less whether an organization is so-called conservative or liberal, but don't spread misinformation--even worse, disinformation. Just tell the fuging truth about whatever it is!
