The High Price Of Telling Lies
http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2013/12/27/harris-...
The boundary between lying and deception is often vague. It is even possible to deceive with the truth. I could, for instance, stand on the sidewalk in front of the White House and call the headquarters of Facebook on my cell phone:“Hello, this is Sam Harris. I’m calling
from the White House, and I’d like to speak to Mark Zuckerberg.” My words would, in a narrow sense, be true—but the statement seems calculated to deceive. Would I be lying? Close enough.

All of them have it.
As teabaggers not only supported the un "Patriot" Act, they defended it.

Then they whined.
"And that's worth any cost to a leftist. Trillions? Freedom? Autonomy?
Trifles to pay for the pleasure of Big Goverment's boot on the necks of "Bitter Clingers", right liberals"?
Teabaggers can't even keep focused on their own drivel.
"Why didn't Somebody Do Something to Prevent This?" (You mean like spend all DC resources looking for a Stained Blue Dress"?)
If only, instead teabaggers ignored it.
And within 45 days we had the un "Patriot" Act.
barock put the Patriot Act on steroids after recklessly campaigning to neuter it.

I've repeatedly stated I support the Patriot Act in the WAR on terror, not criminal investigations and certainly not the seditious way barock uses it on his political opponents and foreign allies. He's doubling the size of the IRS to ENFORCE 0failurecare.

Turning recession to depression and arab spring to winter pales in comparison to making war on your own citizens the way barock has.

THE LIE OF THE CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

What is to be done when, trying to reach these people, the media spawns its own mutant forms of "news" and news-related programming, most of which abandon even the pretense if civility, makes not even a pass at serious discussion, tries for no minimum of public service?

UPDATE:'Global warming' scientists forced to admit defeat -- because of too much ice...

They went in search evidence of the world’s melting ice caps, but instead a team of climate scientists have been forced to abandon their mission … because the Antarctic ice is thicker than usual at this time of year.

The scientists have been stuck aboard the stricken MV Akademik Schokalskiy since Christmas Day, with repeated sea rescue attempts being abandoned as icebreaking ships failed to reach them.

Now that effort has been ditched, with experts admitting the ice is just too thick. Instead the crew have built an icy helipad, with plans afoot to rescue the 74-strong team by helicopter.
