    The Myth of 90 Percent

    The Myth of 90 Percent: Only a Small Fraction of Guns in Mexico Come From U.S.(FoxNews.com)

    Nice. There are two statistics available to our fearless leaders in Washington. The fraction of all guns recovered in Mexico which might actually have originated north of the border in America, and the fraction of all guns which actually go through a trace procedure which are subsequently traced to America. They're conflating the latter (90% of all guns traced are traced to America) with the former (less than 1/5 of the guns seized even APPEAR to have possibly come from America).

    How do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving.

    Well most of us new it was a lie. Would we have expected the truth?

    And the other important question is where else will you hear this lie revealed - NBC, ABC, CBS or any of their party affiliates - I think not.

    No. 1 - If you tell a lie enough times (or if enough people/media tell a lie), it becomes truth. No. 2 - This lie has been started to aid in the attack on the 2nd Amendment, yet another fear tactic planned to incite the public to cry for more gun control. You have to understand that this administration is trying to subvert the Constitution, by any means possible. While Obama was telling all of us that "I'm not going to take away your guns," he was planning on making it impossible to obtain or keep any guns and ammo with tricks like HR45.

    But this plan is becoming unraveled quicker than the politicos can back-pedal. The brown stuff is getting ready to hit the propeller blades, and it's gonna get ugly!

    ... in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

    The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.
