How to Lie to Stupid People with Graphs

Here is the Democrat Committee giving Biden a blow job on rewducing gas prices by two cents. Not the manipulation of the X and Y Axis. 

Here’s what’s been happening since, oh I don’t know, November of 2020.

Which reminds me...

    The Y axis on the second chart is also manipulated….

      No it isn’t, each step up is around $0.143.

    When some official pundit of the ruling class trots out graphs, charts, polls, statistics and such, I entirely dismiss them as pure confected nonsense. They are bereft of all meaning, lacking in any truth, and carry the birthmark of Goebbels. Our government, never really trustworthy, is now in the business of simply spewing out lies, damned lies and more damned lies—and lots of hollow threats, childish slander and invented History. Any man who believes what the US government says or does or writes or imagines or thinks or plans, is an out-and-out fool, a true simpleton of simpletons, one of Aristotle’s “natural slaves”.

    Here is a statistic for you: “Experts claim that 100 percent of America’s ruling elites are pieces of shit.” I believe that one.

    Remember saturday morning cartoons on tv in the 60’s when you were a kid?
    After an hour or so Mom came in the living room and turned off the TV and told everyone to go outside and play.

    Now, the cartoons are on all the time and Mom has left the building.

      Bugs Bunny was my god.

        You bad man. You make Jesus cry.

        • Mike Austin December 3, 2021, 9:49 AM

          Alas, I have made Him cry many times. At last tired of my nonsense, He sent a few of His Angels to slap me around a bit. I got the message loudly and clearly. I still like Bugs though.

            Yeah. I liked Bugs, too. But it was Wiley Coyote that introduced me to Murphy’s law and all of its derivations. I’ve experienced enactments of same countless times throughout my life.

              I’m a “the rabid little kid jabbering ‘I wanna Easter egg I wanna Easter egg’ while rapidly pounding Fudd’s head with a claw hammer” guy, myself.

    Figure lie and liars figure. Every statistic can be manipulated to make it appear any way you want it to.

    If I read the ’18 Month Retail Price’ chart correctly the rise in the price of gasoline began immediately after the 2020 election.
    I wonder why that would be.

    They present just a tiny piece to keep the “True Believers” entertained. Indeed, like the morning cartoons. The entire detailed picture is too complex for the “children” to apprecdiate in the “correct” manner. The simple explanation goes down easier, even if it is a lie.
