|Faking 'evidence' is a way of life in the 21st century. One might read Senator Al Franken's wonderful book, 'Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them.' Too bad scientists joined that crew.

At a time when media across the country disseminates outright lies, and there are no consequences for misrepresenting facts, the whole society is affected. A candidate who would be the leader of this great country at a time of great peril, stood before the people and rather than debate reality, misrepresented the facts with outright lies about his opponent -- who just happens to be the sitting president of the United States.
