I have to say that I know a number of people who regularly lie constantly to
"get what they want" in life. It is not hard to find a significant number of
examples. They, of course, fool absolutely nobody. OTOH nobody seems to call
them liars to their face as it would have little value -- especially if one
wants to engage in any kind of meaningful discussion. So I guess good old
liberal Burgy is correct on this score.
But not everything he says here is correct. I have seen his website picture
and he does not have a pointy head.
