Cutting Through The Crap

When Their Lips Move...




I guess if Barack Obama doesn't want to have his words deliberately twisted by Republicans and RWS™, he'll just need to stay silent. Meanwhile, the response to his "lazy" comment has been the perfect demonstration of the two things that constitute the sum of Republican, teabaggR, and RWS™ substance: lying, and hypocrisy.

He called Americans lazy, they claim. He didn't.

WE call Americans lazy, they should have said -- because they do, daily -- but they didn't.

About the time I was planning to write about it, I read this. So rather than wasting your time and mine, I recommend following the link. It couldn't be more clear.

I'm a peaceful guy, practically an empath. I like democracy; used to, anyway, till these prevaricators showed up and Americans starting swallowing their excrescences. These people on the right have passed well beyond infuriating in their willingness openly to lie and shamelessly to hypocricize. Their contempt for the electorate knows no bounds; their commitment to thoughtful governance is non-existent. If lies were dollars, they'd have balanced the budget, long since. Based wholly upon and fueled by lies and hypocrisy, their agenda is destructive to everything we once were. If proof were needed, this latest miniseries of misinformation has been the perfect emblem.

Because of the mendacious ministrations of the right (and the eager gullibility of their followers), we've become thoroughly unable to address our problems meaningfully; we are way beyond screwed.

Other than that, I feel fine. Thanks for asking.

Hi, I have recently rediscovered Surgeons blog, and I can't seem to get enough!

You have an incredible talent for writing and the rare ability to encapsulate an audience within the first sentence.

I would love to see you come back every now and then to Surgeons blog.

P.S You should come to Australia, would love to meet you in person. I'm very interested in attempting to study medicine myself and cannot explain how valuable your words have been to me in trying to decide upon my career.

Thanks!

I love getting comments like that, Jesser11. I do still sort of tend Surgeonsblog, in that I answer new questions and comments when I get them there.

Psst Sid..
I know the Corriollis affect would short circuit your pacemaker,
but DON'T take Jesser11 up on his offer.
I've been to Australia, Foster's Sucks, the toilets flush the same, and when I saw the Southern Cross for the first time, it was underwhelming...
