    There is a famous quote: "There are three kinds of lies, lies, da**ed lies, and statistics." Now I'll have to find who said it, lol!

    Aha! Benjamin Disraeli.

    These are appropriate as well . . . :D

    A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
    Lenin (1870 - 1924)

    A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
    Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

    The history of our race, and each individual's experience, are sown thick with evidence that a truth is not hard to kill and that a lie told well is immortal.
    Mark Twain (1835 - 1910), Advice to Youth

    He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp posts - for support rather than for illumination. ~Andrew Lang

    Torture numbers, and they'll confess to anything. ~Gregg Easterbrook

    Some nice little wisdoms to throw in the teeth of breed ban enthusiasts and other liars.

    I'm a Lab owner, yet I do not think rottweilers, pit bulls, and dobermans are vicious man-eating beasts. While I do think they are more dog-aggressive than most labradors, that doesn't make them vicious. I personally love pit bulls.
    So not all Lab owners think rotties/pits/dobies are evil things.

    I have met good and bad dogs in EVERY breed I have encountered in my 72 years. Some have been the owners' faults....others poor breeding. Spud, I don't think it's a case of Lab or Golden owners thinking others are bad or evil.....it's a case of loving their dogs and therefore sticking to that breed.
