Honorable Men All

My sister gave me the nearly perfect definition of "truth."

She says, "Truth is what actually happened."

There are occasions when something happens and it is hard to tell from a given vantage point just exactly what happened.

For all other occasions, my sister's definitions works very well.

A person who does not tell the truth about a single incident is a person who has told a lie.

A person who tells a lie is a liar, that is, one who tells at least one lie.

A lie can be blatant: "I saw John kill Sally," when, in fact, I did not see John kill Sally.

A lie can be one of omission: "I saw John and Sally," when, in fact, I actually saw John kill Sally."

Whether blatant, or by omission, an untruth is a lie and an untruth teller is a liar.

Barack Obama is a liar.

(Bring it on, BO. I have the sources of over 100 blatant lies you have told during your campaign...I can back up every one of them.)

On more than one occasion, he has told blatant lies about himself, about what he has done and about both John McCain and Sarah Palin.

On more than one occasion, he has told lies of omission about himself, about what he has done and about both John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Example: He recently commissioned an ad that ran on YouTube about Sarah Palin being a part of a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, an Anti-American separatist organization that wants Alaskans to vote on whether they wish to secede from the United States.

The truth is that she has never been a member of AIP.

That makes the YouTube ad a lie, paid for by Barack Obama through his friend, Ethan Winner, of the Publicis Groupe.

You may or may not have seen the ad.

It was pulled as soon as it was disclosed that it violated campaign laws by failing to include a disclaimer.

Federal Election Law requires that a disclaimer from those paying for campaign ads, "must appear on any "electioneering communication" and on any public communication by any person that expressly advocates the election or defeat of a clearly identified candidate or solicits funds in connection with a federal election."

Now, I don't expect politicians to be truthful all of the time. It's not in their nature.

But there are limits to how much we should endure and still consider a candidate viable.

To date the Obama campaign has lied continually about Sarah Palin, because they seem to fear her "truth-mongering."

They have gone so far as to suggest that her baby is really her daughter's baby.

That one was really stupid, because the daughter is admittedly pregnant now and the Downs syndrome baby's ultra-sound pictures were taken while he was in Sarah Palin's womb!

With every passing day, BO's image gets more and more tarnished as his literally hundreds of campaign lies come to light.

Then he defends himself by calling his lie exposers liars.

Yet, many of you, expecially liberal Democrats, just don't care.

All that is important is power through election.

That's all.

So you become one with the candidate.

Do you know what that makes you?

Bro. Joe,

You just hit it for me. The thing that just galls me most about it all, is just that: so many people, even conservatives, or so-called conservatives at least, JUST DON'T CARE. It's almost as if every one of his myriad lies were proven beyond a shadow of a doubt & made plain for all to see, still a huge pile of folk would vote for him. It just galls me, but it does not surprise me. God Bless you bro. Joe.

pasadena closet: Thank you for your visit.

She can be quite pointed.

dd2 aka: I did visit. Good stuff!

david: Thank you for your kindness.

These are the same people who didn't care about Clinton's lies.
