Everybody::: Please speak in truths. Fact check your information. Wishful thinking that is not based on actual data and science is spinning us astray.
That's a tall order when all the books are cooked.And it's why we're in the trouble we're in.Reality hasn't been represented in the ledger sheets for all of my lifetime.
