    Moderating when you are not a moderator is also a violation of the TOS HAHAHAHAHA

    Trying to inject a bit of moderation into a thread is not "moderating." I have no such privileges, and that was surely not my intent. I guess seeing a picture of Rudy Giuliani (who I happen to like) caused me to see red. Good thing I'm not a bull residing in Spain, eh? :D

    Well, one is all colors while the other is the absence of color. At least that's how I remember the fourth grade.

    Same in politics. Just turn the TV on and listen to the spewing and whining there. It is just human nature. Not sure amateur radio.

    Sorry, but that's not...."the truth". Because the word has multiple meanings.

    You mention court testimony, where people swear to tell "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth".

    Consider the case where unarmed Person B is found shot dead and Person A is found a few feet away holding a gun. That's all "the truth", but it's not "the whole truth".

    Forensics does research and discovers that the gun being held by A is the gun that fired the bullet that killed Person B. That's more "truth", but it's still not "the whole truth".

    We still need more:

    Did A actually fire the gun that shot the bullet that killed B? Or did someone else fire it, and A just picked it up?

    If it can be shown that A fired the gun that shot the bullet that killed B.....why did A do it? Premeditated murder? Self-defense? Defense of another? Something else? Did A shoot with the intent of killing B, or just stopping B from doing something?

    "The truth" has to include all of that before the case can be decided.

    Now consider another sort of truth - arithmetic. Plain old addition and subtraction in base 10. One plus one is two - not three, not four, not any other number but two. That's the truth - anything else is not.
