This was sent to me by an avid reader:

For those of you who are fortunate to be YOUNG ENOUGH to NOT remember…

Do you notice that some people will  say… DON’T DRINK THE KOOL AID !!! or they will say HE “must have sipped the kool aid” !!! 

Both are NEGATIVE comments…

but do you know WHY? How about it defines someone who will follow an IDEA… BLINDLY.

In our history… the KOOL AID can kill you.

In 1978, ONE MAN,  named JIM JONES,  of the “PEOPLE’S TEMPLE”…

convinced 909 people TO COMMIT SUICIDE by drinking his KOOL AID… laced with cyanide poisoning…

supposedly, the people KNEW what they were drinking… and those who did not have the “courage” to do what he asked… well…. they were shot in the head.. including 303 CHILDREN.

This phrase of “kool aid” has carried a NEGATIVE CONNOTATION EVER SINCE.

It is how liberalism is described many times…

Anyway, learn the disgusting “church” of JIM JONES & HIS PERVERSIONS…

 and how he convinced all these folks… to KILL THEMSELVES.. simultaneously… or be shot.

It was a SHOCK TO OUR WORLD at the time.

AND WHILE I AM NOT FOND OF WIKI ANYTHING… I know you guys go there for information… it is NOT ALL THAT accurate.. but at least, you will see that this crap is TRUE.. maybe you will find out more on your own…

The moral of the story.. do not drink ANYBODY’S KOOL AID.. unless you understand EXACTLY, what is in it.
