My Opinion On the Tri-fecta Scandals

I think we must be careful to always be truthful. We may THINK the worst (and we could be right) but it is always imperative to state the truth only. If we don't, we discredit ourselves and others. That being said:

THE IRS SCANDAL: Was Obama directly responsible? Probably not. However, his administration has reached out through the malleable press to create the ...general impression that many conservatives (such as Tea Partiers) are equivalent to the neo Nazis. I do believe it's this atmosphere of hate that created a problem that the sycophantic IRS was all too willing to feed into.

THE PRESS SCANDAL: As of yesterday, the AP Scandal broadened when Attorney General Holder admitted that they've done this countless other times with other reporters and news organizations. I can't say for certain if Obama was directly responsible but again, he most certainly is responsible for the jackbooted attempts to subdue anyone who disagrees with his organization.

THE BENGHAZI SCANDAL: Yes, we need to know who changed the talking points and who chose to point the finger at a little-known (and awful) video mocking Mohammed. However, we have quickly forgotten that, when Obama heard what was happening to his appointed ambassador, he returned to bed so he could get his much-cherished sleep.

Does a Bear...?

Speaking with a friend online about ridiculous sayings, I recalled one of my favorite examples: I once had a creepy boss who was an emaciated chain-smoking blond with dagger like fingernails she never cleaned. She would toss back her shaggy, over-processed hair and regularly make a rhetorical statement (whenever you dared to ask her a question): "Does a bear sh*t in the woods?"
That was a question I could never truly answer because it could take a philosophical bent similar to "If a tree falls in the woods but no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" I came to believe that this usually was an elaborate way of saying "yes" but I was often tempted to waste her time debating this just to get even. ("Well, Kathy, I'm glad you brought this up. I've seen the Charmin commercials and...")
