Who uses the truth, or an only slightly bent version of it, to lie? The strategic omissions and dis-orderings of dissemblers may never contain absolute falsehoods. Those who, often consciously, deceive by such puerile manipulations don't consider themselves to be liars. They think they're more clever than the fools they cozen. Don't kid yourself. Sociopaths and psychopaths like the Wall St Oligarchs and the conservative/libertarians who serve them think we're all stupid and therefore deserving of whatever they want to do or say to profit by our hard work.

The cons insist that progressive ideas like shortening the work week to reduce stress, carbon footprints, sick days and mental health problems are too expensive. All such issues are framed negatively by the right and most Americans have been conditioned to accept the lies. The reality is slowly being exposed: conservatives are self destructive fools and they're killing us all by their stupidity.
