Letter: Honey, sugar and Obamacare

Recently I was trying to determine if there were any benefits in canning to using honey as a replacement for cane sugar. I like honey, but is there really any benefit to using $25 worth of honey instead of $4 worth of cane sugar? After about an hour and about 30 different websites I was unable to reach a consensus with all the different sources.

The pro-honey sites were all connected with groups advancing the sale of honey and related products;the other side was just the same.

Nowhere did I find an answer I could really believe.

This begs the question: How can people post all these factual comments online regarding Obamacare when I can’t even get a good answer to my honey-versus-sugar question?

It is harder and harder to filter through all the crap and “soft” facts – by that I mean lies – on the internet to gather unbiased information.

Many people just look for something that backs up what they want to believe; they really aren’t interested in truth.

The internet is the Wild, Wild West; if you are interested in truth, it makes you work to get it. If you have the correct embedded tags on your website – boom – even the most blatantly false information gets returned on the first search.

So really, if you go in with your mind already made about what is true, you surely won’t be disappointed; however, that doesn’t make you right either.
