"Nothing makes a man, or a body of men, as mad as the truth.
If there is no truth in it, they laugh it off."

Reader comments about this quote:
First they get mad at it and after the anger fades then they laugh at it so to have a reason for ignoring it.
 -- Anon     
    I have dealt with some who if there is not a taint of fraud or cheating involved they don't want anything to do with it. People avoid the truth in order to seek their self gratification and edification. Does not the Bible also say man is to keep the 7th Day holy, that is Saturdiay, Sabbath, Sabado in Spanish and yet what does man do instead. Just a fundamental example of anger or laughter in the face of the incontrovertible word of the Bible.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    There is already a degree of anger out there. Slowly, too slowly people are waking up. But when the greater part of the body of men and women realize they've been had, there is going to be a social and economic meltdown. Perhaps that's why Americans purcheased enough firepower in the last three months of 08 to re-arm the Chinese and Indian armies. Some of these folks have no intention of laughing anything off...

    Obamas stimulus plans have wrecked businesses and created zero jobs, except for government "jobs". He has , however helped one business immensely, the guns and ammo business.

    It's either that or living lives of 'quiet desperation.'
     -- E Archer, NYC

    As always Waffler you make a fool of your self.
