I got an e-mail from my mother that included the text of this lamentation
of the roots of the U.S.
So, being the dutiful son that I am, I read the article in depth. Imagine my shock and dismay when the information presented was not only incorrect in a number of easily provable facts, but some assertions relied on deliberately cherry-picked quotes, some of which were modified, and some assertions were downright unprovable due to vagueness. Not to mention that some of the assertions were countered by other quotes from the very persons that the author was attempting to use to bolster her argument.
Doing what I do, I prepared a document
where I went through the list and documented my research and refutations of the author's assertions in detail and sent it back to my mother.
