We. Don’t. Lie. Ever. Honest.

Amerikkka is not racist. Wars are good. We need big government. We did not fund ISIS. Oil and Banks make the world go ’round. I’m a good Christian. I did not have sexual relations with that woman. I am not a crook. I cannot tell a lie.

Denial and lying are related. And people deny they are addicted to the results of creating alternative facts produced by such deceptive behavior.

Check this out. It’s easy for me to cut and paste this from Wikipedia but it’s so bang on I can’t believe it. Does this description of ‘denial’ remind you of anyone??

Denial, in ordinary English usage, is asserting that a statement or allegation is not true. The same word, and also abnegation (German: Verneinung), is used for a psychological defense mechanism postulated by psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence. An individual that exhibits such behaviour is described as a denialist or true believer. Denial also could mean denying the happening of an event or the reliability of information, which can lead to a feeling of aloofness and to the ignoring of possibly beneficial information.

The subject may use:

simple denial: deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether
minimisation: admit the fact but deny its seriousness (a combination of denial and rationalization).
projection: admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility by blaming somebody or something else.

Deny. Deny. Deny.

We lie. We deny. That’s what we do. Frikkken period.

Popular politicians deny, lie and subsequently are in denial over any accusations contradicting what they want us to believe. So sad.

“And why are they so popular?” asks nobody. “Because we want to hear what they want us to believe.” responds no one. Pity.

Have you fed a wee bit of b.s. to anyone today? No?

I used to love this song when I was a kid. I chased it all over the radio dial going from one top 40 station to the next…hoping to hear it. Everyone thought it was The Beatles. That misconception played to the popularity of the song. The band and the label and the radio station managers and the advertisers and the consumers were all cool with the ‘confusion of facts’. Because the ‘British Invasion’ sound being fed to us was what we believed we wanted to hear. Imagine that.

The lip synching lead singer sounds so much like John Lennon of the day it’s unbelievable. Right down to modifying his New Jersey accent to sound deceptively British – ‘girl’ with a soft ‘r’. And hey…is that other shakin’ rockin’ Knickerbocker playing a Rickenbacker?

Just shake it!
