Latest Event Updates
When’s the last time you purchased an electronic device and while at the check-out counter you were asked if you’d like the extended coverage? “For an additional $50 you can insure your device for two years.” Like most people we pass on that extra expense. The logic goes like this: if I continue to forgo this cost, I’ll save enough over the history of my purchases to cover the eventual moment when the cat uses the laptop as a litterbox.
Lying can be just like that. How many lies perpetrated successfully make it worth the risk if you only get caught once or twice?
Telling the truth is like buying the extended warranty coverage. It may require an immediate price but it provides longer term assurance that it won’t cost you in a much bigger way later.
Every time Hillary opens her mouth she seems pre-programmed to lie. If caught it’s just a miss-remembered event, a concussion-induced memory lapse, a poorly worded answer, stupid people that didn’t understand her or a what-difference-at-this-point-does-it-make moment.
Perhaps Hillary should begin investing in integrity’s extended warranty program and become pathological at telling the truth.
Just exactly where are we going. Only time will tell. Consider the poem by Arthur Guiterman.
“On the Vanity of Earthly Greatness
The tusks which clashed in mighty brawls
Of mastodons, are billiard balls.
The sword of Charlemagne the Just
Is Ferric Oxide, known as rust.
The grizzly bear, whose potent hug,
Was feared by all, is now a rug.
Great Caesar’s bust is on the shelf,
And I don’t feel so well myself.”
To put this in a more short term perspective, we offer:
“You feel as though we’re likely doomed,
because a showdown shortly looms.
Your cheer, though, follows your bodily health,
but I’m not feeling so well myself.”
