honesty

If anything comes in 50 shades of gray...

...it's honesty...

...from the little white lie your child tells you ...no mom I didn't eat that cookie...to the lie from the murderer...not me, I was in New York City when that dude got his throat cut...

How much does the honesty of others affect us personally?....

the little white lie by a child or a friend...disappoints us but it really doesn't affect us.

How a about a Prime time News Anchor...Brian Williams?...are his lies important?..
...I think so...he reports news...I like to believe that when someone reports the "news" it is actually based on facts. If reporters want to lie, then, write op-ed pieces or write a blog, but don't call it news.

So the Liberals believe...that Williams just made a "little white lie" in judgement, but they can't save him so they have gone after Bill O'Reilly on the reporting he did in the 80's about the Falkland Island wars and, also, about someone who commited suicide after the Kennedy assassination...

...David Corn and Daniel Schulman in "Mother Jones" claims O'Reilly wasn't truthful...wonder how long they have been sitting on that info in order to make a name...

...Mediamatters.com/blog claims that O'Reilly is under "heavy Criticism"...yeh...by the blue boys..

...Jon Stewart claims that "no one watches O'Reilly for the truth"...(I do)... and that William's lies were no big deal (a little BS is okay...they all do it)..we need to just move on...and then he goes on to make fun of "Watter's World" and his piece on global warming while reporting in the snow in Boston...

...I guess Stewart's jibes at the red side are really good humor but Watters' stuff isn't funny...maybe only the smurf people cna't see the humor (get it ...liberal...blue...Smurf)...sorry, I should have to explain, but even I have to say it was a mighty leap...

so...William's lies in current time are to be erased because someone claims that O'Reilly fudged on the truth over 30 years ago...that's an even mightier leap...

What about the V.A. Secretary's stretch of the truth.  Robert McDonald told a homeless war vet that he had also been in the Special Forces but he wasn't....whoa...there's a whopper that will harm the world...

...take a gander at McDonald's military record...

...completed Army Ranger Training...took courses in jungle, artic and desert warfare...earned a Ranger Tab designating him as a graduate of Ranger School...but, he nevr served in a Ranger Battalion or any other special ops unit....

so his lie is....a small stretch of the truth which harmed no one...or it is the same as a national news anchorman lying about being shot down in a war zone...

...I'll let you decide that one...throw O'Reilly in there too...how serious is  something that was reportd on 30 years ago and now someone wants to parse words and definitions with him...

...also, remember...O'Reilly's show is not prime time national news...he is not reporting on the news, he is doing a cable show...a good show...but, a show...and ...it is slanted towards the red hats...

The only thing I'm sure of...if you wear a blue hat...you get to say whatever you want and it's only a slip of the tongue...but, don't put on a red hat and have an opinion...wearing a red hat leads directly to lying...I learned that in Logic 101...in college...at Berkley...(now there's a lie...a big lie...I never went to Berkley..)...now if I ever get famous...those are words that will come back to haunt me...
