January Lies

Here are a couple of not so humorous lies told recently:

-Homeland Security Secretary, Mr. Johnson, said that the approximately 11 million people who are in the country illegally have “earned the right to be citizens.”

It should be obvious to all that entering a country illegally should not earn you anything except deportation.

– “As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”

Unfortunately, that quote is from the president, the President of the United States which is pretty embarrassing, us being Americans. One only needs to talk to a person who smokes pot regularly to know that it can alter people’s brains and personalities. Essentially, this person is telling young people that it’s fine to smoke weed. It’s “not very different” than a cigarette or more dangerous than drinking a beer. Actually, weed is pretty different from cigarettes. To begin with, cigarettes don’t make you high. One thing that most people recognize with those who do drugs is that they tend to be liars.

– The American system of checks and balances continues to work well and keeps the executive, legislative, and judicial branches in balance.

Did you know that when Napoleon came into power after the French Revolution that the French people simply replaced their king with a dictator? Oh yes, everyone could vote, but their votes didn’t matter at all. Oh yes, everyone was to be treated equally, but some people were more “equal” than others. Oh yes, there was a new constitution, and guess what? The new constitution gave Napoleon the power to make any laws he wanted. He could declare wars and make France’s policies all by himself. “How could that be?” you may ask. Well, Napoleon wrote the new constitution 🙂

Every month brings many, many lies to us. We decided just recently to chronicle some of those lies but since we are so late for January, we are a little short of material this time. But just read current events and politicians’ words these days, and you will notice so many lies, that you will have to find something healthy to do in order to recover.
