I am going to try something new.
Since the title of my blog is Truth, Lies, and In Between, I figured I would start finding stories that fall into one of those categories.
I think it will be an interesting journey.
The inaugural post is: Lies.
I’ve never played Tiger Woods. Truth is, I don’t even know where that is.
I played a lot of golf this week. Two days in a row, I fired rounds of 76 back to back. On Wednesday, the 76 included a tap in for eagle at Jerome Country Club. On Thursday morning, I rolled a six footer in for par on the last hole to finish at 76 with my cousin in law, Jason. Because I was playing so badly, I decided not to play the back nine. What a difference a day makes.
All week long I have been reading and mulling over all of this spoon fed bullshit that the media continues to feed us. I actually think that most people believe we have some kind of rock solid economy chugging right along. Nothing could be further from the truth.
I’ve never seen anything like this. If some good piece of information comes about- it is trumpeted everywhere on virtually every network and on liberal social media. All of the crappy economic news, falling home sales, soaring part time jobs with no benefits, the crooked banks and their manipulated accounting, earnings misses everywhere, M2 money velocity falling off a cliff. None of that gets reported.
So I thought I might ask if this sounds familiar… Do you know people who only talk about the good things in their lives? They will tell you how happy they are, how special their kids are, never ever stating anything which might be construed as derogatory. Like they are living the dream and not susceptible to the same worries as the rest of us. I know people like that- people who can’t tell you the whole truth about themselves because they are scared shitless to reveal anything that might paint them as fallible, less than, or even God forbid- normal. They want you to believe they have these perfect lives- in essence, they want you to believe their own bullshit.
