Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
Honest Disagreements vs Lying in Relationships persoanl and political
A quick blurb before i get some work done... yes, unlike lastnight i am going to attempt working at midnight instead of waiting til 4am. Wow. The utter dictatorial nature of my discipline-loving employer...ME.
I just wanted to say that I have been reading Charley Reese again... sometimes i disagree with his stance but more times than not he just has a great head on his shoulders and the guts to write what he thinks in plain speech. Check him out on the definition of a Good Economy and the future of the United States (and Canada may I add).
Next, consider these words from his Sept 12 column about politicians:
Most Americans don't expect politicians to be infallible and perfect, but they do have a right to expect that politicians will be honest.
A free, self-governing society can survive honest disagreements, even serious disagreements, but it cannot survive deception and dishonesty. The whole basis of self-government is that people can make the right decisions if they are given the facts. They cannot do that, however, if they are constantly fed lies. Political lies should be considered a mortal and unforgivable sin.
And consider how they apply to relationships in general... let's just replace a few words:
Well I think that statement translates very well from the personal to the political field and back again. I am so sad to be so angry and so angry to have to be so sad. I miss the ob I thought didnt lie to me. So so sad. To anyone reading this, please dont lie in your relationships OR to your constituents if you are in politics... or to your employees or or or...
