Thanks for that. Watched most of it - had to get past the Nancy Disgrace part too. (she's another monarch programmed story for another time). Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30421335
What's the matter with that man's mouth? On top of that actor's lack of acting talent, it looks like they made his tongue too big for his mouth.
All of this is so obvious. Why can't people get it?
I totally feel like this is the twilight zone.
Two reasons come to mind:
(1) You don't think anyone would try to do something so big and so fake. Aren't they afraid of getting caught and being embarrassed? I am sometimes afraid to lie because of what I would experience if caught.
(2) You want to go along with the social meme. If "everyone" is participating in the tearjerker, watching the news coverage, etc., you want to join the group. It's a very strong driver in most people. In a way it feels good to cry and mourn the dead, if that's what everyone else is doing.
And what if "they" get caught? Well they are hidden, so they don't have to get red-faced in front of us and stammer an explanation.
In the rare case that the liar is a public figure, like Obama being caught immediately after putting out the fake PDF Certificate of Live Birth, well he's trained and paid to brave it out and lie. And he has enforcers to minimize the questioning opportunities.
Why are these things so transparent that we can see them? Why was 9/11 pretty obvious too with a few facts? Why did Obama, with all the time in the world, make the really bonehead mistake of putting out a pdf where the layers had not been collapsed? The answer is that they can't hire much help. They have a small core of people who will do this shit and not lie. In the case of Obama that core was very small, and he had one guy doing the pdf, and the guy was incompetent and made a huge blunder. They have all the money in the world, but competent people can afford to have integrity. So they are left with the dregs, whom they can push around with strong reward/punishment motivations, and once they have proven they can perform (even if not very well) and keep their mouths shut, they are used over and over. Every new face they bring into the picture is another potential leak.
