A deep, rich tradition of lying
The next time a young man or woman comes home in a box, don't listen to the politicians who want us to believe that individual died honorably and in defense of our nation so the rest of us can enjoy the few liberties and joys left in life.
Now that you mention it, I do recall something about someone, I am not sure it was a military man, saying the game in Iraq would be a slam dunk and inexpensive. Perhaps a lesson here is that it might be less expensive to give Herb Kohl a bigger scoreboard at the Bradley Center in order to more visibly record slam dunks. Then men might be reassured of their their masculinity in basketball and not in war. Women also might be reassured enough in watching men in action at the Bradley Center that they would not feel compelled to vote for political warriors such as President Obama or Mitt Romney, but instead cast their vote for a colorless but peaceable man such as Ron Paul who wishes to sound the retreat to American troops throughout the world.
The lies never stop, seems like somebody is always trying to flim flam somebody else, all in the name of profit!!!! How come all these wheels in government aren't even veterans? They have all these plans and want to attack other countries but they have never served nor have their children. Talk is cheap, and so are the poor peoples kids lives who get sent to fight to protect corporate interests.
Yes, Ed, all too true.
