P.T. Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute". My oldest sister watches Sylvia on Montel. Sis is the family imbecile, so she believes much dumb "kuso". If everyone was like you and I, Sylvia would be forced to find an honest job. What a waste of paper Sylvia's books are!

Because not everyone will know she scams. "Psychics" around the world wouldn't carry on if peoples listened to the facts.

It's the same way science and religious cults work. Regardless of how many opposing views or evidence to the contrary they charge on as long as people are willing to follow them. Many times just to continue their funding.

Just to be fair, Pat Robertson is the same way, although he claims he gets his wrong predictions from God. What a complete farce.

My mom's in love with her books. If they're a scam artist that claims to possess the knowledge of the universal, or the cures for every disease, my mom buys into it. She thinks they really have a cure for cancer but are just covering it up to keep us dependent on their drugs so they can make money. Hmm...

She's a expert in persuasion. So was Hitler. Scary thought but least she just wants money.
