I’m losing track of all the lies being told to us via the media, the politicians – everyone. In fact, it seems the only people not lying to us are the greeters at WalMart and … crap, I can’t think of anyone else.
What sparked this realization – this epiphany, this afflatus of mendacity?
Well, I was reading Joe Biden again. Now I know you’re going to say something like “Do you know the website number?” or “Roosevelt got on the television…” or any of a number of other Bidenisms which make your head feel like a helium balloon and make you absolutely certain that good ol’ Joe is actually a brilliantly constructed balloon animal, himself.
No, the realization that we are swimming in prevarication came as I read Biden’s most recent quote, “We’re not asking you to switch your party, we’re just saying join us in teaching a lesson to absolutists who come and tell us that no dissent is permitted within their own party.”
Is that line a bit off-line?
Then consider the other current-day goodies: Goldman Sachs in the news again as another bankruptcy with yet another financial company connected to Sachs allows the big bank to get in-line ahead of the U.S. government in recovery of funds. Sachs is interesting also in a low-rent sort of way, as it recently instructed Wall Street law firm Chadbourne and Parke to attack blogger, Mike Morgan who has been critical of Sachs in a very direct manner. Or how about the H1N1 situation?
In the case of H1N1 – the infamous Swine Flu virus – has been even talked about by smokin’ Joe Biden.
"I would tell members of my family -- and I have -- I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now,” said Biden about the Swine Flu on the Today Show, April 30. “It's not that it's going to Mexico. It's you're in a confined aircraft. When one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft."
Of course, the CDC has run continuous updates regarding H1N1, extolling the virtues of vaccination – and still has the following on their main web-page “vaccination is the best protection we have against flu. Seasonal flu vaccine is available now and initial doses of 2009 H1N1 are also available, with additional doses available later this year.” Of course, that begs the question, “Where are they available?” Because, so far, there’s not much out there. Of course, they also have posted, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be closely monitoring for any signs that the vaccine is causing unexpected adverse events and we will work with state and local health officials to investigate any unusual events.”
Yep. You can count on them. After all, there’s so much vaccine out there now to be worried about – and lots of sick people.
But sick people, can be saved by the government! Of course, this is the same government, which can’t even pull together the flu vaccinations, let alone ensure my prescriptions arrive safely through the U.S. Postal Service. But the government has a trillion dollar health care plan to save you with and there’s been so much effect by the stimulus plan and bail-outs. The same kind of big money shell-game being played by Goldman Sachs.
Yeah. There’s just so much truth out there.
There’s truth like that being pushed by lovers of ACORN, who still want the shady organizers to be involved in our political process.
There’s truth like global warming – despite animal populations alleged to be declining, actually booming instead, and temperatures in a cooling trend instead of the heating trend.
There’s truths like those being spouted by Nancy Pelosi, Rahm Emanuel, Robert Gibbs Blob and so many other radical whack jobs in the government now. Obamacare is 2000 pages long and is so ill-defined that truth or lies – no one really knows what it is.
Lastly – and they are being left for last – are our troops. Our president has made no decision on the request for more troops, and this is leaving the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines in-theater, in an increasingly precarious position. How many lies – and how long before we arrive at the truth – the real truth? Perhaps Biden said it the best…
“An hour late, oh give me a f**king break.” – Joe Biden, in a statement made to a former Senate colleague after arriving on Amtrak at Union Station in Washington, D.C., March 13, 2009.
