We have all heard it said… and perhaps you have made the statement before. But you know who the masters of this tall tale are don’t you? That’s right! It is the politicians and our elected officials (officials that we elect to represent us!) So why do they get away with it?
Is it because they are so good at weaving truths and lies together like fine threads woven together with inferior threads? The cloth made up of many fine threads doesn’t look so bad! Why, because the inferior threads (the lies) are woven below and through the fine threads (the truths) so skillfully that only the most discriminating eye can tell that it’s not a superior cloth made up of all fine thread (all truth).
Now if you wonder where the politicians and elected officials (Democrats, Republicans, Moderates, Centrists, Progressives, and all) learned the art of slanting apprisals, it was at law school, or as we Southern boys like to call it, “lawyering” school.
But I also think that some of this may be beyond their individual control; the result of their parents passing down a “lawyering” gene that might present itself as a proclivity to “shade” the truth.
You see, 46% of our Federal government is run by lawyers which make up only ½ of 1% of our poulation! Now if you have ever known a lawyer, most of them could persuade their own mother that the Pope is a Jew.
And “now,” as the late Paul Harvey (September 4, 1918 – February 28, 2009) used to say, “for the rest of the story.” Government health care is still alive in Washington, because that’s what Obama and Reid and Pelosi and a bunch of other “lawyering” type folks up on the hill want.
Is that what the American people want? Well, I for one don’t! Who is going to benefit from this massive health care “overhaul”? The politicians of course! And who do you think is going to pay for it?
Wait a second… didn’t they say “It won’t cost a thing”? Oh that’s right, I forgot! And oh “The Pope IS a Jew!”
Your comments are welcome, but speak no lies please!
