This is my rant of the day:
People are gullible. No, in fact it's worse: too many people are too gullible.
Yesterday I was surfing the net and I came across this crazy story about two people being arrested for selling tickets to Heaven for $99.99. No kidding.
Tito and Amanda Watts were arrested over the weekend for selling “golden tickets to heaven” to hundreds of people. The couple, who sold the tickets on the street for $99.99 per ticket, told buyers the tickets were made from solid gold and each ticket reserved the buyer a spot in heaven — simply present the ticket at the pearly gates and you’re in.
Anyone dumb enough to buy them is not just gullible, they are an idiot. Especially after you hear the back story behind how the tickets came to these two:
I don’t care what the police say. The tickets are solid gold… it ain’t cut up two by fours I spray painted gold. And it was Jesus who give them to me behind the KFC and said to sell them so I could get me some money to go to outer space. I met an alien named Stevie who said if I got the cash together he’d take me and my wife on his flying saucer to his planet that’s made entirely of crack cocaine. You can smoke all the crack cocaine there you want… totally free. So, try to send an innocent man to jail and see what happens. You should arrest Jesus because he’s the one that gave me the golden tickets and said to sell them. I’m willing to wear a wire and set Jesus up…
That's just funny. Clearly a couple of crack addicts could be messed up enough to believe this is true. All I can say is that the men in the white coats better get busy and start chasing these guys. But who were their customers? Those are the gullible people. Apparently the police have seized thousands of dollars from the sale of those tickets to be admitted to Heaven.
Now I no longer need to question why president Obama was elected - twice. People are too gullible. There's a sucker born every minute. Maybe 3 or 4 suckers per minute. Still don't believe me that people are gullible? Take a look at the garbage people are buying on eBay:
