Well, almost...


Kinda true.  Well, not completely true.  Unless...  Well...  I guess it depends on how you look at it and who you believe.

There is the little problem of the Lockerbie bombing.


Some maintain that it was rogue Libyan elements who carried out the Lockerbie bombing on 21 December 1988 and that Qadaffi knew nothing about it until after the fact.  These folks contend that the bombing was not sponsored by nor condoned by the government of Libya. 

Of course there are others who believe that Qadaffi hatched the plan himself and ordered it done.

Ya just never know.  And I doubt we ever will know.  Not that it matters.

Anyway, it's a nice "motivational" poster.  Unfortunately, it doesn't hold up.  Or does it?

The point?  I guess it's that we don't know who is telling the truth any longer.  We don't know who our friends are.  Within our own country, everyone hates everyone else.  The sides are hopelessly divided.  The Republicans have chosen a candidate that the people don't want.  The Democrats have obama.  It has become a game of using lies and misinformation to get into positions of power and then more, bigger lies, to stay in power.  And the people are so focused on their hatred of their neighbors that they cannot see what is happening to their country. And they eat this shit up.  The People are so certain that they're right that they will never even consider they might be wrong.

I have difficulty believing that it's an accident.

You'll have to pardon me if this post seems a bit incoherent.  I'm tired.  Physically and mentally tired.  And tired of all the bullshit.

There is so much going on in the world today that it is impossible to keep up with it.  And so much of it is bad.


Stay safe.

Miss V... Now that I've had a good nights sleep I feel much more like my normal sweet, lovable and innocent self. Happy Friday! :)

It is no accident. It's the result of the very successful implementation of the Cloward-Pivens plan, or something similar, decades ago...
