Allen Johnson; "Full-page [Sunday] ad on Berger Sr.?: Purely coincidence"

"I am guessing it is purely a coincidence that a full-page Sunday ad in the News & Record praising Phil Berger Sr. as a champion against health care "mandates" runs only two days before Phil Berger Jr's primary runoff for Congress.

There is absolutely, positively no connection between one and the other.

Sunday obviously was just a good time to encourage Berger Sr. to "hang in there."

the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture,
and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation.

These contradictions are not accidental,
nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy.

They are deliberate exercises in doublethink.

You are so intent that you believe
only what you believe that you believe,
that you remain utterly blind to what you really believe 
without believing that you believe it.

If you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed.
