Going back in the past to showcase 'lies' that the government has committed means absolute zero in the present tense and is not evidence of wrong doing. Period!
Anti-government protesters entered the grounds of the Thai prime minister’s office and Bangkok’s police headquarters without facing resistance from the police, easing tensions after more than two days of street clashes.
The police removed barriers protecting the compounds and told demonstrators they were free to “hold a symbolic rally,” spokesman Piya Uthayo told reporters in Bangkok. “There has been no confrontation today,” he said.
Riot police fired tear gas and used water cannons to repel demonstrators seeking to storm Government House yesterday. The change in tactics may lead to a pause in the group’s push to unseat Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and dismantle the political network of her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, as Thais prepare to celebrate the birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
“The protest leaders now realize that Yingluck is not going to suddenly cave in to their demand to resign today,” said Paul Chambers, director of research at the Institute of Southeast Asian Affairs at Chiang Mai University. “So they had to give their followers a success.”
Just who's side are you on, anyway? ??
The events transpiring today proves now, more than ever, that anyone who believes what the government tells them has really poor judgement.
If there's one thing that's as certain as death and taxes, its that the government will lie to you at every opportunity. Those who believe in those lies and base their lives around them really need to wake up and smell the reality.

There is only one reason for lies, and that's to consciously conceal what is to others, unacceptable intentions and behaviour. Lies are never told to hide good deeds, only bad/evil. Government lies for the same reason as anyone else - it is guilty of something bad.
