What nonsense. People believe whatever they are told. There are really
enough examples for this.
The Vietnam war, the Gulf war, WW I, WW II, the Watergate affair,

hi regard. In my observation the only people who hold government in high
regard now IS the government and not all of them. I know some government
(state) employees personally and they are very's just that the
job is soooooo easy that they don't want to do anything else...that might
require some they don't quit. But their consciousness hurts them
