bowling-green

A lot of people have been having a lot of fun thanks to Kellyanne Conway’s latest adventure into the realm of alternative facts. One response to this has been the creation of a “fundraising site” for the victims of the Bowling Green Massacre.

Anyone with a functioning brain could see these types of words and actions coming from a mile away. All one needed to do was pay attention to Trump’s 30+ years in the public spotlight and especially the man’s words and actions during the Republican Primaries and the actual campaign. The man’s ability when campaigning to to call actual facts a lie and to call others a liar for speaking the truth even as he spouted off a string of lie after lie was unparalleled even in the world of politics. Donald Trump is a man who does not have the ability to distinguish an actual fact from something he simply likes and wants to be a fact, and his habit of lying almost every single time he speaks or tweets about a topic reaches pathological levels. 

He built a campaign in his own image that treated facts and truth with the same level of disregard and outright disdain that he himself did.  Then he won the election and began to create an administration in that image. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer officially gathered the press for the first time to deliver a five-minute statement Saturday in which he made several statements filled with multiple falsehoods. The media noticed this and said something about it. Then Trump sent his official spokesperson for his Ministry of Truth out to talk on the Sunday chat shows.

Brain Damage

Coal

It’s an election year, so once again coal and coal workers have become political capital. Once again- wash, rinse, repeat -the tired old garbage is getting dragged out in the political debates as coal miners and their families are propped up in front of news cameras. For this go round’s fun and games we have Hillary backtracking on some comments and trying to sugarcoat other comments that should probably be delivered more directly while Trump stands on the opposite side of the fence falsely promising that under his Presidency we’d see those coal jobs roaring back.

What we need are politicians that will actually be dead straight honest on the matter. As hard as that may be to find, what may be even harder to find will be the audiences honest enough to actually listen. Why will the second part be so much harder than the first? Because people don’t like hard truths; especially when they mean turning the world they know upside down.
