Say LIES, Dammit!!! "Armed Services Chair: Never Seen Such Lack of 'Truth-Telling' from Commander in Chief"
I realize politicians are renowned for their ability to weave infinitesimally-small kernels of the truth into their narratives intentionally. But at what point do you call a lie a lie? I tell my children every day that if they are not telling the truth, they are lying. It's that's simple. I've noticed popular talking heads like Hannity are notorious for avoiding this critical and brutally-honest term as well. Does the systematic removal of "lie" from our vernacular signal a complete transformation of society into emasculated, t-ball playing trophy recipients; Or is the absence of this word merely tactical?

First rule of answering a "true and false" question: if ANY part of the question is false, then the question is false. When did any truthful part of an action or statement make the entire action or statement true?

Armed Services Chair: Never Seen Such Lack of 'Truth-Telling' from
Commander in Chief
March 1, 2013

By Elizabeth Harrington

(AP) (CNSNews.com) – Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-Calif.) said on Friday that he has never seen such a lack of honesty from President Barack Obama over the sequester budget cuts, adding, “I don’t know what extent this White House will go to, but it’s got to end.” “I have never in my lifetime seen such a lack of leadership and truth-telling emanating from the White House and from our commander-in-chief,” McKeon said during a press conference on Capitol Hill as the across-the-board spending cuts, known as the sequester, apparently were going into effect. The cuts, which constitute $44 billion less in increased spending in 2013, constitute about 1.2 percent of the federal budget for this year.

“Senator [Harry] Reid [D-Nev.] and the Democratic leadership for three years have not passed a budget and we’ve given them a pass,” he
said. “You’ve given them a pass.” McKeon said the Joint Chiefs of Staff and all the military chiefs are operating without budgets. “These men, who’ve dedicated their life to protecting our nation, we put them in these very responsible jobs and give them no financial support, no direction,” he said. “Sequestration was the president’s idea over a year ago. And when we tried to fix it, he said, ‘No, if you do anything, I’ll veto it,’” McKeon said. “Then during the campaign he said it won’t happen. Then the last couple of weeks he’s come out and said it’s armageddon, the world’s going to end. Then the last couple of days he’s softened and said, no, it’s just kind of pitiful. He’s played all kinds of roles in this position.” President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File) “And when [Bob] Woodward, a respected journalist, tried to lay out the truth, he was crucified, vilified,” he said. “And I don’t know what extent this White House will go to, but it’s got to end,” McKeon said. “We are done cutting our defense.” Automatic, across-the-board cuts taken equally from defense and non-defense spending began to take effect on Friday. The reductions, as stipulated under the Budget Control Act of 2011, are designed to trim a minimum of $1.2 trillion in spending over 10 years. McKeon is concerned the arbitrary cuts will be detrimental to national defense. The Defense Department already announced in February that it would cancel the USS Harry Truman’s deployment to the Persian Gulf, reducing the number of aircraft carriers in the region in half, citing budgetary concerns from the sequester.

Contrary to what you've been told, justice IS blind, just in the sense that it doesn't serve to reward the righteous or punish the guilty. Washington, D.C. - what a masquerade party. That would make our state representatives from NH the catering crew.

Thank you for pointing out a miscommunication Lady. I corrected/qualified my statement. By "blind," I meant something to the effect of "turning a blind eye."

It would be too easy to start throwing out accurate descriptions of the guy. Sociopath, for existence. Except in his mind, everything he says IS the truth. As far as he's concerned, his actions ARE for the greater good. We are drowning in a world of grey, where "perception IS reality." Where do you go with that? I guess to be fair, the term "liar" should be reserved for the rare occasion when both houses of Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court are all in a room together; So that we wouldn't miss anyone.

Wow. Never got a chance to continue this thread, between the ban and the server implosion. I see the matrix of LIES is falling apart everywhere. Thankfully.
