Everyone, even you, tells lies. This is a very basic, human, flaw people. So dont tell me your somehow surprised! "Oh no, gasp lies" Or the exception. "I never ever tell lies.*Halo on top of head glows brightly*"
What matters is the capability to hide those lie. The best could be found out, if you looked close enough.edit on 3-7-2012 by TsukiLunar because: (no reason given)

You know, if I'd have seen this thread title anywhere else I'd have moved on. The title is stating the obvious right?
But as it was top billing on the homepage I gave it a click.
Sure enough, the content of the OP is run of the mill, standard, so why so many flags??
Ah, its posted by a supermod!! Obligatory bum licking comments follow and an amount of flags that don't reflect its worth.
Come on people, make room for the real news!!!!

You could check out my post history and see that many, if not most, of my threads don't get a lot of replies or stars or flags. Most of them where posted after I became staff on ATS. As a matter of fact, if I could figure out how, I'd donate them all to you. Maybe because it rings true with people? Maybe it's because it's a thread that tries to point out the obvious to people? Don't know why people decided that it was this thread they responded to but they have I guess.
There has been a lot of good points made in here, just getting to read them now. The thing is, to me anyway, anyone who says they don't lie is lying to them selves; we ALL tell lies. Like I mentioned earlier, admitting you have lied is important. Trying to be honest as possible as often as possible is important. And pointing out the harmful lies when you see it, whether they affect you or not is important. That's helping out your fellow man, something we should all try and do. Because sometimes, people refuse to beieve they have been lied to or don't want to hear the truth, as it may affect their cozy little world.

You don't think that the fact that media outlets lined up to support another media outlet who wanted the legal right to lie to us is a conspiracy?
You don't think that the fact that the USSC ruled in favour of corporations being a person in the legal sense is a conspiracy?
You don't think that politicians that lie to us everyday about everything, and not just individually but collectively, is a conspiracy?
All of humanity is in peril of extinction if each one of us does not dare, now and henceforth, always to tell only the truth, and all the truth, and to do so promptly —
Whether it is to be Utopia or Oblivion will be a touch-and-go relay race right up to the ﬁnal moment. . . . Humanity is in ‘ﬁnal exam’ as to whether or not it qualiﬁes for continuance in the Universe.

And that's another fact! No conspiracy here, just plain 'in yer face' being crapped on by the corps.
