Robert Redford has been widely interviewed lately on the environment. He stresses the immediate need, and urges that all concerned with the future of our planet should “just tell the truth.”
He states that people are eager to hear the truth because they have been lied to for so long. It makes sense in other areas besides the environment; Democratic leaders and the media should get on the ball and challenge the lies hurled at us all the time.
What we can never figure out is when the government officials are telling the truth. Now it’s even worse since the Supremes made it nearly illegal for whistle blowers to protect us with their conscience.
Media talking heads just do not challenge the people they interview. The truth is a victim of Bush politics and the media is supposed to be protecting it instead of suborning it.
This week we have been pummeled with graphic evidence of how our armed forces were able to capture one al-Qaeda leader in Iraq. Dead or alive came true with dead being the operative word.
Collateral damage happens and others suffered when two bombs took out this dreaded killed guy, al-Zarqawi. Thereafter, truth changed from minute to minute.
He lived through the bombings and tried to get away. He was tortured by Americans. Americans game him first aid. We were given the facts of the autopsy and minute by minute poop on what an important kill this was.
Bush made a hasty visit to his conquered country, Iraq, to strut the strut and dribble the presidential “looking into his eye” to his Iraqi lackeys. He made it clear – “together forward!” [I am the man! You are the sheep.]
Just in case anyone didn’t get it, he followed that with a speech to his American lackeys. In all the pomp and circumstances of the past week only one thing was certain, TRUTH WAS STILL MISSING IN ACTION, PRESUMED DEAD.
A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.
He asked, "What are all those clocks?"
St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on earth has a Lie-Clock.
Every time you lie, the hands on your clock will move."
Oh," said the man, "whose clock is that?"
"That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie."
"Incredible," said the man. "And whose clock is that one?"
St. Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock.
The hands have moved twenty times, telling us that Abe told only twenty lies in his entire life."
"Where's George Bush's clock?" asked the man.
"Bush's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."
