So the world keeps spinning and spinning. Sunday morning and a few things come to mind. One of our Esteemed fellows has brought to light the flaws that may be behind our current romanticizing of liars. Another of our sisteren has pointed out the lack of integrity in the photo department. In mulling these two things over, as well as listening to the "Sports Writers" explain away their hostility for Barry Bonds, and his forever tainted pursuit of what was once considered the greatest record in all of sports, I came up with a few questions of my own.

Like when was the last time anyone remembers anybody being praised for honesty??I mentioned to B that George Washington, the famous cherry guy, is still languishing on the lowly one dollar bill, while some guy from New York got a police honorguard procession out of the bleachers in San Francisco the other night, after coming up with the homerun ball Bonds hit in breaking Ruth's record. Can you say Ebay??

Then there's the case of the son of the former director of the CIA. Now say what you want about these guys, they serve a purpose, they fight the "good fight"; the thing that they do is as necessary to our way of government as the pork barrel amendments congress attaches to defense spending. But Hell kids, They don't call it DISinformation for nothing. And of course, we elected the kid as our president. So what's that say to you??

In an article i read today, the term Dogma was used to describe the difference between the conservative philosophy, and the things our president uses to defend his personal thoughts on how we're all supposed to live our lives. Now Dogma was a pretty good movie by Kevin Smith where he addresses the differences between the Bible and the catholic church. But that's old news, really. Who of you really believes that god is on both sides of a war?

Now the picture thing is an issue similar to the psychological one. An accurate, current photo would seem to be the honorable thing to do, If you're not in witness protection, as so many of us on here are, but it's certainly not the most comfortable option. As we grow older, the mirror becomes less and less of a friend. Oh, it's honest, allright. Serious as a heart attack, as they say. Most of us aging wonders know we used to look better, but having to stare at your current reflection can be a little depressing. So we reminisce. Gee, i used to be so pretty, it's just not fair. We cherish the air brushed celebrities. We covet the photoshopped news.

We have lionized the likes of Al Capone, & Billy the Kid. Guys who did it their way. Robin Hood, one of the great myths of yore, was a thief, no matter who he stole from. No matter who he helped with the proceeds, he took something that didn't belong to him, and he's been a cultural hero forever. We embrace the "Fake Steve Jobs" of the world. We chase Fox news all around the dial. We think used car salesmen are dishonest, but we still buy from them.

The stock market is crashing. The housing sector is in disarray. Because we gave people with lousy credit mortgages that they couldn't pay back. See what i'm sayin' here? We keep losing sight of our own basic principles; of honor and integrity. Of loyalty and trust. It's the American way, circa 2007. We can't handle the truth?? What the hell is truth?? I mean, is anybody telling it??

Truth, and Fact.. two freakin words that bug the shit out of me. My truth and your truth aren't necessarily the same thing. There is no hard and fast FACT.. because everything and I do mean EVERYTHING is subject to personal experience and beliefs.

But Nacho, they scream, gravity is a fact. Is it? or is it merely a suggestion that we chose to believe? Until someone can prove to me that it is uncontroversially impossible for someone to forget that gravity exists... and they won't because of something that happened when I was a child.. I choose to think that everything, in our realm, is a suggestion.

Certainly I want you to share your truth with me, but whether it's true for me or not, that's up to me. Right?

You can say to me, the sky is blue. No. It's not. The sky is black. The reflection of water drops in our atmosphere give it a bluish cast near the earth. But.. go high enough up and you are in the black. I have also see the sky go yellow, or orange, or purple.. so the statement that the sky is BLUE.. is false.

You could say that you are a police officer, a defender of the innocent. I can say there is no innocent and that the police force is a herder of sheep. We would both be right. So where is the truth?

It's all opinion.. even my truth. Even yours.

ok now where were we goin with this??

Everyone lies at some time in their life.. whether it's a nice white lie.. 'no honey, your ass isn't fat.' or something to save their lives or whatever..

The question is at which point do we consider the lie, an act of aggression and make it into something bad? At what point does one become a pathological liar? When people find out that the reality they have made up for themselves isn't being believed by the rest of the people.

Life is good like that.. you are free to do anything you choose.. you must, however, face the consequences of your actions.

Wheeeew.. that went a little overboard didn't it?

Honor
Integrity
Loyalty
Trust

These are things I hold with high regard. While others concern themselves with physical beauty and material possessions, these 4 things alone could make me a contented person for the rest of my life if I had an abundant supply. I don't have a car, but I do have honor. I don't have a pot of money, but I have integrity. I don't have a long-term love, but I have the loyalty of many. And I don't always have the truth, I am still able to trust.

No, Nacho, not everything is absolute and the truth can be relative...CAN BE. Some things are truth and fact, even if someone else chooses not to believe.

Good blog, T.
