When something has feathers, a bill, waddles, and quacks…you’d think it would be difficult to deny…it’s a duck!
But there’s a lot of denial going around these days, in fact it seems practically epidemic. Despite any and all evidence presented, people do not want to believe what’s staring them right in the face.
What’s being denied primarily is bad ethics, but also, there is denial of questionable associations, and agendas.

We blame American oil companies for this most recent oil spill, but not for the predictable reasons. American oil companies, in our opinion, have helped set up a situation where there is a substantial amount of oil production offshore, even though there doesn't need to be.
