    Default what possesses people to fabricate stuff?

    a "reverend" making up police harassment stories gets busted by the body cam footage. after watching the footage, i can honestly say that i don't get that nice and polite of a officer at any of my traffic stops.

    Maybe someone will ask Mr. Trump that question.

    Probably won't get an intelligible answer, though.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Well, from your example it’s clear that it’s only them black people that make stuff up. Reports of racial profiling are all just Fake News, after all. Good catch, Alan. We need to be sure that those people are kept in their place.

    Bless your heart for the fine work that you’re doing, sir!

    Your hero Trump is Fabricator-in-Chief. Is there anything he hasn't lied about?

    But you love him and his utter disregard of fact, truth, and justice.

    I really enjoy making things. I envy the fabrication skills of good machinists. Oh wait...

    The guy was stupid & got caught. Glad he did - but as the article said, he set back the cause of fighting racial profiling.

    A related and more important question is what possesses people to believe lies and fabrications, especially when they are so obviously and demonstrably false? Answer that one and you'll understand why a significant portion of the county seems to enjoy being lied to on a daily basis.

    Actually, Alan, it is YOU who have Trump issues.

    You installed this criminal.

    He's YOUR baby.

    And Trump starts the day at what, 5AM with a series of tweets that often make no sense. Just think how it would be if he kept his wee fingers off a keyboard for even one day. The problem is, Trump wants to be center stage 24/7 and he's addicted to twitter.

    Two ways of looking at this:

    1) As a general question. This answer is WAY above my pay grade, and would likely involve a large grant and multiple grad students for a year or two to even scratch the surface.

    2) As a specific question about the behavior of people like bobbys, mdh, delecta and AlanMc.

    In this case, the answer is easy.

    These people are desperate to retain the white privilege they refuse to acknowledge, and are terrified that they will no longer control everybody else.

    Therefore, when someone tells them that they can keep on keepin' the browns down, they have no choice but to believe it.

    If they reject the assertion that this person can maintain oppression, then they have ceded the field.

    Their only choices are to accept humanity or believe the lies, and humanity is WAAAAY too scary.

    Why not?

    The man is a criminal and you put him in the White House.

    Unless you are happy about having a career criminal with deep, deep ties to the Russian mob controlling the Executive Branch, then you really ought to be talking about how to get that son of a bitch behind bars, or even in front of a firing squad.

    That is the patriotic thing to be doing.

    Your refusal to grasp that your 'beloved' country is under a potentially-fatal assault from a foreign power, and that the man YOU elected is the point of the spear makes you look pretty bad.

    What's it going to take, Alan?

    The evidence is everywhere you look, yet you refuse to grasp that this man is out to destroy your 'beloved' country.

    Why do you hate America?

    i'll let you in on a little secret sv. i don't get up at 5 am and start reading trump tweets. the only way i know what trump has tweeted is b/c yall come in here and post it. and most of the time if i can tell a thread is a "trump tweet" type crap-fest, i ignore it. try it out sometime, it might improve your sanity.

    You don't have to, you just have to watch the news. I'm not sure whether FOXNEWS displays them though. Probably not!

    Why do you hate America so much that you are comfortable with having her in the hands of this criminal, especially when those tiny hands are closing around her throat?

    Alan, if you are having a great day here in the Bilge jousting with anti-Trump Forumites, it must mean that either you really enjoy needling others who don't agree with you, which doesn't paint you as a very nice person, or that the rest of your world outside of the Bilge must be a pretty sorry experience... <wink, grin>
