You can’t handle the truth !
I think Jack Nicholson said that , playing Colonel Jessup in A Few Good Men .
And what is truth ? , says Pontius Pilate , when Jesus of Nazareth is on trial for his life . We both have truths . Are mine the same as yours ?
I thought for a minute that I’d write a little on the topic of truth . That’s not really what’s on my mind , though . I was thinking more of all the recent political craptrap and my flimsily assertive ideas like the world is going to hell in a hand basket and the inevitable upcoming sunsetting of the great American experiment at the stubborn hands of ham fisted bigots and simple minded ignoramuses and self-interested fools , many of them holding the reins of intelligence and probably fine educations only to put all of that potential to use plundering the moral , civic , and historical riches of this nation .
You know , temporary but discouraging thoughts like that .
A lie told often enough becomes the truth . —- Vladimir Lenin
[fact or reality , fact or reality, fact or reality, fact or reality , fact or reality]
Here I sit in the USofA , fat and coddled , pecking upon the keyboard of a laptop computer while munching candy-covered peanuts and , well , disappointed , weighted down with the endlessly circulating lies these days flying crazily around what’s been called the public square .
Even if you are a minority of one , the truth is the truth .
Ghandi said that .
Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it . Emily Dickenson said that .
…………………..and that’s my two cents for today .
