Am I allowed to call them liars?

...or are they just incompetent?

As Lloyd Carter predicted, politicians spoke falsehood in public (via RM):
  • "Man made drought" -- there's no such thing.
  • "Caused 40 percent unemployment" -- not true.
  • "Farmers not receiving all the water they deserve" -- there is no Santa Claus.
  • "Breadbasket of America" -- uhh, nope.
These politicians (McClintock, Denham, Hastings, Nunes) are deluded.

Reminds me of Bill O'Reilly, who equates his inability to understand tides with proof that God exists.

Bottom Line: The lack of critical reasoning among politicians leads to stupid rhetoric, policies and actions. And we ALL pay (even the farmers).
