Government: Big Brother Truth or Lie?

Posted in Humor at 8:42 pm by keithwilbur

I’m with the Government and I’m here to help, yea right, we all say.

I say,  lets put Government, or Big Brother on a scale of one to ten, one being that they are total lairs and  ten being they do their jobs and make our life better.

I say give them a score. Now think about this, if you think Bush you may give a -10 or a + 10 depending if you lean left or right; I’m asking you to think about  roads, law enforcement, welfare,  clean or dirty water, parks.

Ok I think you get my drift – now vote damn it!

I give the bunch an over all – %)(#@#

Is this what a Vader Indoctrination Video would look like? Truth or Lie?

Should McCain put Palin on the Supreme Court? Truth or Lie

From a recent Newsweek article, Dahlia Lithwick argues that McCain should  put Palin on the Supreme Court rather than have run her as his Vice President.

Palin for Supreme Court

After reading the article, I think Lithwick’s logic is sound and that this would be a great course of action for John McCain to follow.

Here is a quote to demonstrate just how sound her logic is:

Finally, Palin has revealed, both as the mayor of Wasilla and then as the chief executive of Alaska, a style of governance that features the not-infrequent firing of dissenters. Among the growing list of those dismissed or threatened with removal on Palin’s watch were Mary Ellen Emmons, the Wasilla town librarian and vociferous opponent of Palin’s proposal to dabble in book banning, and John Bitney, Palin’s legislative director, who was dating the not-quite-ex-wife of one of her husband’s friends. Palin is also the subject of an ethics investigation for firing Walt Monegan, the Alaska Public Safety commissioner, who declined to fire the state trooper divorcing her sister. I can’t help but wonder if following two years of scandals surrounding the Bush administration’s decision to terminate nine U.S. attorneys for their imagined disloyalty, John McCain might be nervous about a vice president with a proclivity toward doing the same thing. If McCain puts Palin on the Supreme Court, however, she has only a trio of law clerks and a secretary to hire, and each can be vetted for ideological purity.

No fair arguing that Palin isn’t experienced enough to sit on the highest court of the land. What matters—far more than experience—is one’s unyielding moral certainty, relatability and gender. And Palin has these qualities in spades. Washington’s old-boy problem hardly ends at the Oval Office. If ever there were a D.C. institution in dire need of a place to plug in a breast pump, it’s the Supreme Court. And Palin has already proven that neither the courts, nor precedent, nor even the Constitution itself will be a match for the force of her will. America has finally found someone suited to put the “law” back into scofflaw, and it’s Sarah Palin. McCain shouldn’t waste her talents on state funerals.

Getting a deal when you know they are down

Hypothetical:

Say you are at the flea market and you see a woman there with two small children trying to sell personal items. You can tell she and her kids are down on their luck. It is near the end of the day. Her kids are a bit whinny. You talk with her and find out her husband died last year. She tells you it has been a slow day at the flea market.  She really needs the money to feed her kids.  The only thing she has of any value is her wedding ring. She tells you her late husband paid $10,000 for it eight years ago and it is obvious worth that, but she needs to feed her kids.  She is willing to sell it for $500.00. She is desperate.   You have the $500.00 on you but you pull out $150.00 and tell her that is all you have. She cries as she hands you her ring.

Truth or Lie –  Would you take advantage of a person down on their luck? It is not like you know them.

Double Standard: Lipstick on a pig Truth or Lie?

Per Republicans:
Cheney: Lipstick on a pig (really funny!)
McCain: Lipstick on a pig (keen political observation!)
Palin: Lipstick on a pitbull (brilliant!)
Obama: Lipstick on a pig (an outrage!)


What do you think:
Do Republicans give new meaning to the term ‘double standards’?
Do the Republicans fake their outrage?
Are the Republicans as phoney as a three dollar bill?
