It’s Only Lying If You Subscribe To Some Notion Of Truth

Rand Simberg:

Joe Biden has a bumper-sticker phrase to justify reelecting the president: “Bin Laden is dead, and GM is alive.” Some, such as former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm, doubled down on the demagoguery during the Democratic National Convention, declaring that Barack Obama saved not just General Motors, but the auto industry itself. But is it really true that were it not for the president, there would be no American auto industry?

Read the whole thing, forward it to the ignorant Lefties in your life. My main Lefty completely ceased speaking to me, as it was “requiring her to bend too much to maintain our friendship.” (?)

Back on topic, here is a joke:

Q: What is the difference between government intervention in markets and shooting tequila?
A: I don’t know, either. Maybe you’re more likely to run out of tequila before exhausting interest in government intervention.

Irrespective of the outcome of the election, it’s going to be a bumpy ride for the next decade(s). Rediscovering sober truth is crucial to any likelihood of success.

    “My main Lefty completely ceased speaking to me ….” I hear ya, brother, I hear ya. Sigh.

    Same here.

    I won’t talk politics with several members of my family because we’d probably end up not speaking to each other. My one brother is a liberal and is still blaming Bush. How can you reason with someone like that?

    “requiring her to bend too much to maintain our friendship.” is just girl-speak for “It gives me the vapors to listen to things I disagree with.” It’s tough to remain rational and kind when you’re wired for flight instead of fight.

    I seriously think the person in question may be clinically depressed.
