If they recognize it, Darby, they're no longer deceived. But if they prefer not to look too closely at the comforting lies they are told, then you'd have to say they prefer to be deceived.

+1 to this! There may be such a thing as a just war, but it is immoral to instigate any war with a goal short of total victory. Any less is an insult to our soldiers who are risking, and sometimes losing, their lives.

You're free to not read it. I personally did not know about many of these examples, though I did know about the smoking, AMT, and income tax examples.

The way to end world hunger: universal respect for property and contract rights. That would be sufficient.

When it comes to Syria, with Ba'athists and Shiite, Iranian backed Hezbollah terrorists on one side and Sunni Muslim Brotherhood/Al Queda Islamists on the other, it really brings me to just ask, "why can't both sides lose?"

Considering the situation in Syria, regime vs. rebels, Shiite backed terror vs. Sunni terror, I can only ask: why can't *both* sides lose?
Don't feed the trolls, folks.
That last was to Mirna, not Jeff :)
