Liar liar pants on fire. I could write a spacious diatribe re that little childhood taunt. Appropriate perhaps, since the behavior of so many is childish and said taunt very apt. There's an insurance commercial where two insincere salesmen keep answering questions with lies as their pants smoulder then burst into flame. Trying to be trendy one says 'no mas pantalones' Spanish for no more pants, plus the reference to 'liar liar...'. Sure the nod is obvious. The collectivists are losing their pants while the Republic loses its trousers. Those silly liberals are losing as long as they are exposed. It's a combo spotlight and feet to fire that is their downfall. We must be more unrelenting than any Fabian socialist in pressuring them. These mokes lie pathologically and delude themselves it's for the 'cause'. And the ones who pull their strings, they are stone cold psychopaths. Yep, turn the tables on 'em. Make 'em lose not just their pants, but the war. Because, what they do and would do to us if they win is untenable.
Here is a small reveal: Under Pressure form David Bowie and Queen was the first song I played as a DJ. 'Pressure, pressing down on me'. Nope, I'm not commenting on those guys. I like to leave certain opinions up to each person. But I reserve the right to give mine and exchange ideas. That must be one of the greatest saving graces when we are under pressure. It comes from so many places on so many levels. It's worldwide, national, state, local, gtoup and individual. Part of the idea is to keep people so busy that they don't have time to address the issues. It's not diversions like sports (ok unless it gets obsessive) or hobbies (same). It's grinding away with the gov putting more taxes, laws, statutes on our backs like a load of leaden kaka. We are kept so busy, we wonder if we are alone. Isolation, limitation and resignation bear down. The way out is to realize we are not alone! Now, I know a lot of us are in the company of like minded folk. A glance to the right can tell you something about that. I'm reaching out to those who think it's no use. We are stronger together than apart. So, this is my 'Captain Obvious' post. But, I bet we all know people who are lost in a sea of bureaucracy. Open up their worlds! Remember phone trees? One person calls someone maybe two. They in turn do the same and so on. Pressure can be handled. Just don't blow your lid -s-.

What is truth? Good question from Pontius Pilate. That's because people frequently find truth relative. They see what they want to see. That's also why MSM are so effective. Taking facts and creatively bending them, or leaving out, or emphasizing certain things at certain points is sadly an art. Pravda is Russian for truth. Why it was such a joke in cold war days. Mastery of manipulation extended back in US news and, for that matter, whenever people have wanted to know what was going on. Some folks want to be told, want to be cared for, controlled. Marga Meier, who taught me German and Medieval History talked often of the divided Germany. There was likely less control in West than in East. But now it is a worldwide tendency to 'edit' events. Accept that, or be like me and how my brother and many teachers taught me to dig. With the internet, it's easier to snap to something and get the unadulterated evidence so vital to 'pravda'. Things are quickly and in some cases viciously covered up. That's why you should check the people in the right column here. These guys and gal can refer you to further Freedom seeking spots. It boils down to interpreting what's going on. Believe or equivocate, it's up to you. The truth will not only give you the means to be Free, it will be a faithful guide, if you choose to believe.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." --Marcus Cicero Well, he certainly had a way with words, huh? Of course, Cicero saw Julius Caesar as a threat to the Roman Republic. His dictatorship was supposed to be temporary. We can't be sure if that's what Julius had in mind. The point is Cicero saw Caesar's rise to absolute power. And we know it corrupts absolutely. Mind you, none of this is just cut and dried. There was a lot of intrigue and factionalism, eventually leading to Cicero's death, after Caesar's assassination. Don't look for exact parallels re our Republic and the Roman one. We have the only true Constitutional Republic in world history. Rather than go into a big lecture, go research. Our history is there for the study. I'm simply thinking traitors. It's not just paranoia, more than a Red Scare, though that was real and communism is very much alive. Traitors offer the knife in the back. They lie and use half lies to rot the fiber of Freedom. Alinsky comes to mind as well as the tactics of the Soviet machine. Compromising our way out of Freedom continues. Therefore, contravening that continues apace. The collectivists love to paint our history and ourselves in the worst possible light. The goal is to discredit, perhaps even compromise us. I think the goading is to push Freedom minded folks to do something rash. Here is my suggestion: Countermove/intel them. Traitors are many and have existed for centuries. Remember Adams' Sedition Act. Statism/Federalism surely destroys us without commies. However, they work hand in hand, resulting in strange bedfellows. Liberals think they can have their cake and eat it too. Many long for the new dawn, the impossible dream of collectivists always. The State rules but some are more equal than others. Don't be paranoid. Face traitors with truth ie, our heritage of the people ruling, self government. I'm sure we are still in for the fight of our country's life. Power is not willingly surrendered. Neither will our rights. As I have said, we fight an enemy that never sleeps. We must learn to sleep less.
