Terry O'Reilly and the Age of Persuasion...
I happened to catch a bit of Terry O'Reilly on the CBC this
morning. He was blathering on about the wonders of the BRIC countries
(Brazil, Russia, India, and China). Getting off to a brilliant start,
he promulgated the usual propaganda about go-ahead-economies
having go-ahead-population growth.
Well population growth rates in the BRIC are:
What rot you speak, Mr O'Reilly!
Only India has a growth rate that is significantly higher than
countries like Canada, USA, and Australia.
It's countries like QUACK (Qatar, Uganda, Afghanistan, Congo, Kuwait)
that have high population growth rates.
Well, one expects exageration from
an advertising man... I listened to his program for a few minutes.
When the outright lie count hit 6, I turned the bloody radio off!
- Brazil, 1.26%
- Russia, -0.51%
- India, 1.46%
- China, 0.48%
I went to the Terry O'Reilly website.
It seems Terry O'Reilly is moving on from The Age of Persuasion.
Moving on to "Under The Influence"....
My advice, don't listen to Terry O'Reilly.
And don't fall under his influence.
