i could never have imagined the systemic lies and deceits from the president of the US on down.

it doesn't make any sense for us little people to tell the truth .

2. And the children of today are learning that it is OK to lie
That is what I see, when they see what the leaders of the nation are doing.

My 12 year old see right through it, but at the same time gets the idea that if you lie, you can get away with it. The reich wing was all over Clinton with "What message is this teaching our children" about the blow job. I am returning that message to them about lying and bu$h.

3. It is OK to lie - the more you lie, the better the promotion. Lies
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 11:12 AM by higher class
facilitate ladder climbing.

It is OK to steal - we lie when we teach our kids that they must vote and every vote counts.

It is OK to kill - our leaders lie to get permission to go kill people.

That is what we're teaching our children - the lesson they receive on tv and radio and by glancing at a paper or the internet.

But the books in school and the verbal lies - are all lies.

The way we treat our children is a lie.

In the past decade we trusted our leaders and some trust was justified. The news was late and dissenting voices were small and quiet. We didn't have enough details and the trust overrode much.

Now the acceleration of lies is parallel to the mediums to expose them, but the lies only get bigger and come faster and hold the evidence that someone is trying to destroy our country.

(And our corporate networks are only obsessed with carnal crimes reported by many long haired females and sing-songed male lawyers whose tales of blood and motives is the new book for children.)
