    Hey guys I started a whole thread because I'm tired of liberals constant lies! So much so that I wish the mods would do something about it. Just dont ask me what example I am using for inspiration for this thread because I'll dodge the answer repeatedly and frequently

    That's beside the point and will derail the thread.

    It was ok for you to claim that conservatives habitually lie but, when I informed you that liberals also lie, you went into denial and ridicule mode.

    Only if you consider asking you what you are referring to as "denial and ridicule". But this is how it goes. You make a claim, I ask you a question and then you dodge being snarky first "Right because liberals never lie" then when called on the artful dodge you suggest that I am a bully.

    Lets remember the only thing I asked you was this:

    What lies are so pervasive that made you start the thread?

    And you find that question to be unfair. Should I start with what is your favorite color and work my way up?

    Ultimately they expose themselves (even if you don't recognize them right away). Sometimes you just have to have patience or use that ignore feature.

    K9Buck perhaps you could request the administration create 'a liar-liar pants on fire' button. Be aware though that the extremist will have the option to use it back on you.

    Holding citizens to a higher standard than our political leaders that control our financial future.

    Typical.

    I disagree wholeheartedly. First of all, many people lie without intending to do so. They are simply uninformed or misinformed which leads to them saying something that isn't true. And perhaps they are telling the truth and you've been misinformed, leading to the impression they are lying. Look at how many so-called "fact check" sites have popped up, only to become heavily politicized and biased in what they determine to be fact or not fact. Sometimes, facts are determined by subjective perceptions and several facts can be true at the same time.

    No, what we need is for more people to be open minded and objective when it comes to communicating with others. To reestablish mutual respect for one another and value a difference of opinion or a differing perspective. We used to have that. Once it was lost, dialogue has spiraled and devolved into a hideous abyss of insult and denigration. The answer to that problem is not censorship. The answer is NEVER censorship.
