Electees and selectees, who hold down big government positions, must be truthful at all times. NO EXCEPTIONS! Whenever they get busted for telling flat out lies, their big boss MUST promptly bark out his trademark catchphrase, “YOU’RE FIRED!” To not do so causes the snarling, top dog to appear as guilty and corrupt as his obsequious subordinates.
Lies of omission are no better.
Often, obfuscation of the truth involves self-serving political expedience… better known as selective amnesia. Cutting through the euphemistic bullcrap, under these circumstances, what we’re actually eye witnessing are the big boss’s rat-like cronies scurrying and scampering around in CYA mode. These downright deplorables… these brazenly lying bastards are prioritizing paycheck over patriotism… career over country… and as such, MUST BE denied their cushy government positions, as well.
Other times, tiptoeing around the truth involves genuine forgetfulness. But even if such lapses of memory are not motivated by malice… even if these instances are isolated and rare… this is still reason for deep concern.
Considering how… as I type this… as you read this… tyrants (e.g. puppeteer Putin) and terrorists (e.g. ISIS / al Qaeda) are relentlessly plotting to dominate and devastate our world, we cannot afford anything less than picture perfect integrity and mental clarity from big government big shots… from the tippy top downward… all along the chain of command.
While it’s OK for forgetful people to be employed… their job descriptions had better not involve life or death decisions… where cloudy thinking could jeopardize the survival of democratic nations and freedom loving people everywhere.
