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.
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).
