“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

Carl Sagan

    The Light is never extinguished. Give the power to whom it belongs.
    Give the praise and thanks to whom it belongs. We have forgotten the face of our Father.

    Once you give a charlatan power over you, YOU almost never TAKE it back from BILLIONS and BILLIONS of LIBERALS.
