Have you ever come across any such incident where people has begun to believe a well marketed lie as the truth?

Well, I don't believe that a job is the only option in regards to making a living. I like business ,and I have an entrepreneur spirit. I hate it when people tell you that working for somebody is the only way to improve your life. Most people have an employee mentality ,and they don't search for a better life. Recently I recommended a company to some of my friends ,and at the end I realized that it was more of a marketed lie. Sometimes it takes time before you find the right company ,but eventually you do. Thank God that none of my friends joined. I finally found a company where I'm doing really well ,but the company is just within the U.S. ,and is not global.

Well, for me a lie will always be a lie regardless of how well marketed and covered it may be. Some may get away with lying...for the meantime. A lie may look like, and even be accepted as, a truth...for the meantime. But I guess, there'll really come a certain point when the truth would reveal itself and no one can stop that from coming out.

That is what Abe told in the following words. "How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four; calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg."

Oh yes, that we need weed killer to get rid of Dandelions. If we ate them, they would be endangered, they are in some places where they eat them. Also that lawns have grass, that didn't happen until the 1800s I think. Lawns can have anything you want on them.

i think i am one of those people when i lie. i think its key to not get caught. if you tell yourself a lie enough it becomes a sort of truth and easier to tell without the risk of getting caught because it makes you sound more sincere. i know its something terrible to admit but thats how i figured out to do it successfully a long time ago.
