I do not understand how liberals can look at what is happening at the VA and assume scientists telling them what they want to hear are any more reliable than doctors telling them what they want to hear.
The irony is that the first thing they cry when someone tells them something they do not want to hear is that the source is tainted by their biases, particularly money as if this does not apply to those telling them what they want to hear equally.
See cartervj's post in another thread on narcissistic personality disorder. You and those that agree with you are NOT special. You are NOT better than others. You are nothing special. You are just like the rest of us, so act that way and not as if you and those like you are not subject to the same human shortcomings because it has been proven time and time again that you are even if your fragile self-esteem cannot accept being ordinary.
