Things You’ve Heard That Just Aren’t True
1. Thomas Jefferson had a relationship with his slave Sally Hemming.
2. 1 out of 10 people are gay.
3. 1 out of 5 women are sexually assaulted in college
4. Women make 80 cents on the dollar that men do.
5. The working poor actually work.
6. The rich don’t pay their fair share of taxes.

What’s your favorite made-up fact that people just take for granted as true?

It would be nice if you could provide links with actual historical facts about the things. Otherwise, people will just think your fos.

I always thought T Jeff laid the to wood to Sally Hemmings but if it isn't actually true I want to know.

Saw one of my semi-conservative female friends post a meme, that if employers want the workers they simply need to pay the extra $300 a month.

Not sure what the lie is, but the deception and ignorance is real

January 6 was a deadly riot

The "For the people act" is all about voting rights

Georgia's voting laws prevent blacks from voting

re: Things You’ve Heard That Just Aren’t True
OP's #1 and #5 are true.

1. Trump actually won the 2020 election in a landslide.

2. Jan 6 attack on the Capitol was really just a peaceful visit by tourists (said by a dumarse GA US Rep).

Do you actually think if some historian puts it in print and someone links it, that that makes it true or false?

One of the Saturday morning financial shows on the radio was talking about this today.

They both, accurately, said that the average person would rather receive minimum wage to stay at home all day, than receive 4x the minimum wage and have to work for it.

People would rather be lazy and get a little, than have to work and get more.

They said its unfair for companies to have to compete in the labor market with the federal government, that has an unlimited budget and no profit motive, and is not requiring any labor in exchange for money.

This labor crisis won't be solved by simply paying more. It's not the compensation, its the amount of labor performed. People would rather just not have to work.
