I just want to point out to readers that there were posts removed so the thread doesn't make a lot of sense. Though one could argue it's a step up!

You like to argue most, Phil, when you know the least.

Ambition I suppose, what next, a run for president?

Why not, he doesn’t know squat.

I find it telling that we don't see you at any moderated boards.

I imagine you find anything enlightening that is above you, as it is telling and worth questioning?

But then, your kind hopefully always grows up some time to find your mistakes too late,.. because it always ends up as youth, ignorance, ambition.

No actual good for the industry.

Your good at what you know, so limit your ego to there and you will benefit the world, ....and leave the rest of the exploration to those who can handle it.

Chris's posts bring the name Joeseph Goebbels to mind. Except that Goebbels was more highly educated, more industrious, and probably more intelligent.

Goebbels also was able to practice self-restraint within the bounds of his society. However, I see the parallel. Repetition as the path to truth is a key element of any propaganda campaign.

I am afraid, however, that you just ushered in a new occupation: Google Professor of History.

Goebbels had the common decency to kill himself.

I believe he said "a big lie, repeated often enough, becomes the truth." (or something like that.) I am afraid he taught many modern politicians what lying can do! (notice- parties and nationalities are not specified.)

thanks, it wasn't a quote and I didn't look it up. It's good to see that I, at least, had the gist of it correct.

I would say more than just politicians picked up on this. and yes, I agree with the implication that all politicians lie.
