Who's Telling Lies?
The Webster dictionary defines "lie": an assertion of something known or believed by the speaker to be untrue with intent to deceive.
We are entering another election cycle. The use of the word "lie" is beginning to get more use.
Last June, in my request for one lie spoken by George W. Bush, David Wiegel suggested I access the Internet for "George W. Bush deceit and lies documentation" and be buried in well- documented sources.
I was buried by a list of 22 authors. Al Franken, David Corn, Paul Krugman, Eric Alterman, Richard Clarke, John Dean and Sidney Blumenthal are but a few. I could not find a capitalist or a conservative. I could find a lot of differences of opinion but not one statement that meets the Webster definition of a lie.

Regarding recession, what percent of the population was employed at the height of World War II? What percent are unemployed now? My father told me when I was about 10 years old, that 5 percent of the population has never worked, is not working now, and never intends to work. We are in a recession!
A person signed a mortgage. The banker is a predator for granting a loan and now bears the responsibility of nonpayment!
Dear Government, feed me, clothe me, provide housing and recreation. I'm responsible for nothing.
