5. The answer is right under our noses

Too many people like being lied to and the Republicans are expert liars.

When people accept lies, they'll accept anything. That's makes it so very hard to admit that they could be wrong.

It's much easier to believe in more lies.

6. Ok.

So, if I'm working from an early classical source, like Haydn, and it asks for oboes and english Horns at different times (but hardly ever english horns), is it ok for me to sometimes substitute one for another if otherwise doing so would require having two english horn players just sitting around doing nothing for the most part?

I guess I could make this decision myself if I knew more about the period instruments. How different were 18th century double reed instruments from those we have now?

22. Because they trusted him

There are times when education and politics can't account for simple naiveté.

But then, I'm pretty much of the mind that a lot people WANT to be fooled.

He didn't fool me.

32. Detroit is the biggest example of what's happening to the rest of America

We need to rebuild and reinvest here and the same needs to be done for the rest of America.

In order to do that, we need to have our government get off of it's ass and stop deferring to the corporate elites and monopolists.
