Untruth, Injustice, and the anti-American Way

First, there is a bit of good news.  Hoist a glass and give tribute when the inconvenient truth prevails over faddish progressive sensibilities.  In vino veritas.

There seems to be a glaring dearth of veritas, or truth, in the White House these days.  Dissembling and specious reasoning are standard issue press release material for the Loopy Left.  These are the same witheringly insightful geniuses who claim that because people continue to be murdered despite the death penalty proves that it is ineffective.

First, no person who was executed has ever committed murder posthumously.  Second, and most blatantly illogical, is the death penalty's opponents' implied claim that they have been able to quantify, or measure, how many murders, if any, were prevented by the death penalty.  Proving the negative is impossible.  Trying to quantify the extent to which an event did not take place is a fools errand.  Perhaps this is why the Loopy Left embraces this fallacious argument.  

On one hand, it is difficult to take President Bubba Clinton seriously after his obsessive pursuit of low rent females of the Tropic of Cancer variety; however, that a public podium is maintained for this smirking liar by the Congressional Theftocrats' lapdog media may justify taking note of his antics. 

Bubba's attempt to portray Tea Party members as the moral equivalents of the bombers of the Murrah Building is not just despicable duplicity, it is ethically reprehensible.  Clinton's claims are at least consistent with his character.  After all, he was impeached for lying under oath and obstruction of justice.  Bubba's most worthy achievement was that his unwillingness to keep his member in his trousers prevented his vice president and the author of An Inconvenient Truth from becoming president.

While on the topic of propaganda, lies, and disinformation, the former Soviet Union's official communication agency Tass appears to have been the paradigm for mommy staters' rhetorical strategies.  The USSR's news agency had a penchant for spinning the truth.  The Soviets tried to compete with the US at virtually all levels, from military and propaganda ventures to automobile and clothing production.  They even tried their hand at breeding racehorses.

While a Kentucky thoroughbred was visiting potential breeders and buyers in Europe, a race was arranged in Russia between the American horse and the premier Soviet stallion.  The following is a paraphrase of the Tass agency's report of the race.

The horses were off at the shot, running neck and neck.  At the halfway point, the US horse held a slight lead.  The race concluded with the Soviet horse finishing a close second.  The rest of the field was nowhere in sight.

In truth, the American horse won by twelve lengths, and that the rest of the field was nowhere to be seen was due to the fact that there were only two horses in the race.  The mommy staters learned their sleight of hand communication schemes from the Soviets.

May your gods be with you.
