COUNTDOWN: There remain a horribly long 1,077 days left in this extremely hyperbolic and dishonest misadministration’s term in office…
Washington, D.C., like the capitols of all nations throughout history, has been the home of lies and liars. Regrettably, that will always be so. Weak-minded, opportunistic, insecure (as well as deceitful) politicians – like Devin Nunes and Presi-dunce Donald Chump – will always choose to lie rather than reveal an unpleasant truth to their constituents, It enables them to pass potentially unpopular bills as well as gain the upper hand in political positions so they can defeat their opponents and gain victory, even if that victory is short-lived. It is a weakness of human nature that we, the often-unknowing public, must repeatedly endure. Thankfully, our less-than-perfect news media exists to at least partially illuminate our way. Though imperfect, it is better than nothing.
Our society and culture are literally built on lies – look at the plethora of lying TV, radio, magazine, and newspaper ads we are exposed to numerous times each day! Even a major TV network – Fox “News” – lies repeatedly to smear political opponents. One of their main commentators, Sean Hannity, is a chronic liar. The only thing that differs occasionally are the severity and extent of the lies, but, especially at Fox, they are ever-present!
We have seen Chump constantly lying. He has lied repeatedly about how well our economy has done under his tutleage, as if he and he alone deserves credit for its successes, even though this record-long rise actually began and continued under the entire presidency of his predecessor, Barack Obama. As I write this today, Wall Street has just sustained the most gigantic single day loss in points in its history, and appearances are that this correction will continue. Tuesday, thr market appeared to regain about half the value it had lost on Monday, but was very erratic most of the day. It will be interesting to see the lies Chump and his lying followers will come up with to try to wriggle out of THIS fiasco!
But Chump, who apparently has the attention span and wisdom of a gnat, naturally ignored the economic volatilty and instead chose to label Democrats who failed to stand up and applaud his every utterance during his State of the Union address as “treasonous.” The absolute absurdity of Chump’s remark led directly to Democratic Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth (who sacrificed both of her legs in the Iraq War) to rise up and justifiably refer to this cowardly creep as “Cadet Bone Spurs” – a direct reference to the excuse Chump used to obtain a deferment from military service during the Vietnam War era. Now, it’s been revealed that Chump wants to blow taxpayer money on a wholly unnecessary July 4 miliyary parade In Washington – all for pomp and spectacle! Worse yet, this buffoon has just called for another government shutdown! The sheer hypocrisy of this moron will remain unequaled for all time in presidential politics!
In this post, I have chosen to quote a great many persons of different times and places who have chosen to give their opinions on the subject of lying. Here are some of their quotes:

“You can fool some of the people some of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can;t fool all of the people all of the time.”

– Vaclav Havel –“There is beauty in truth, even if it’s painful. Those who lie, twist life so that it looks tasty to the lazy, brilliant to the ignorant, and powerful to the weak. But lies only strengthen our defects. They don’t teach anything, help anything, fix anything or cure anything. Nor do they develop one’s character, one’s mind, one’s heart or one’s soul.”
