Louts who murder educated people (like doctors). Curs who target innocent ethnics (like museum guards). Charlatans who beguile mindless oafs, whipping their short-changed psyches into lunatic lathers. Pols who spin lies into Vaseline to ease their entry into the orifice of least resistance.
A former vice-president concocting a ponzi scheme of deceitful misstatements, transferring lies from the sinister side of his two faces with forked tongue to distribute inflated lies to compliant patsies.
Spin. ‘Til they’re twisted.
The popular “Three Biggest Lies” we swapped for amusement years ago—“The check is in the mail” was big—are archaically amusing half-truths that pale in light of today’s whoppers, diabolically false syllogisms:
“This government does not torture people.”Twisted.
Waterboarding is not torture.
Ergo, “This government does not torture people.”
In the aftermath of 9/11: madness, generated coolly by an administration playing on the fears and foibles of “the people” that “government… by the people” was supposed to be “for.” People frightened to the brainsick point of frenzy, made so paranoid about attack from the outside they attack fellow citizens from within.
Spun ‘til they’re twisted.
People who damn others, who take lives in the name of saving lives, who do their damndest in the name of God—all God’s creatures? If all men and women are created in God's image, who are they who profane the name of their God in the name of their God?
Is a cold-blooded scheme to bomb a clinic any less barbaric than strapping explosives to one’s body and bombing a market place or a public bus? As fringe loonies lose their sanity, do houses of worship lose their sanctity?
They have aborted individual rights and God-given rights, civil rights and the Constitution.
And the real twist is: when destiny has its say, they’ll spin in their graves.
