I want what Obama had promised. Did that not seem doable? It did to me.
He lived up to more of his promises than any President in our lifetimes.
There, ya see? You had to tell a little lie to keep the myth, the delusion going. Maybe we really can't handle the truth. I mean, everyone thinks they can handle the truth but maybe it's necessary for us to weave lies into the fabric to keep society together like telling your wife she doesn't look fat to keep the marriage happy. But I don't think we should sugarcoat all the killing, torture, larceny and slander. Or maybe we should but the genii is out of the bottle. That is why this internet clampdown is upon us. As a number of my favorite alt news sites are gummed up or disappear I find watching Jay Leno clips on YouTube fun, just like before the internet. So, should we blame the internet for giving us too much info (Uh, that's a little too much information.) or should we know the truth and once known and acknowledged - and all the bastards are in prison - progress?
