  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Truth Matters by sighthound on 16 September 2018 5:07pm
With the horrible Liar in Chief in control of my country, I feel like I'm living in some kind of Lewis Carroll alternate universe where up is down, black is white and everything else has no validity. So I just went to Vistaprint and ordered t-shirts to be made in black with big white letters saying "TRUTH MATTERS" which I'm going to wear every time I go out of the house. In this age of blatant lies, it will be interesting to see what the reaction to the t-shirt will be.

I live in California, a very blue (liberal) state but I live out in the desert, a terribly red place which voted overwhelmingly for Trump and his minions. But people here are so NICE. I can't go to the supermarket without getting into nice conversations about meaningless things with total strangers which usually doesn't happen elsewhere in the U.S.. Now trying to discuss something of importance like, say, the feasibility of building a giant wall to keep brown people out of the country (which it won't) would only be met with extreme hostility but who can quibble with "truth matters"? I hope that pointing out some of the obvious lies will stir the consciences of all these nice people. (It started here on the day of the Inauguration when Trump crowed that it was "the BIGGEST Inauguration crowd EVER" when the irrefutable evidence from all the photos showed how pathetic the turnout actually was. I found it terrifying that he thought he could get away with that boast.)

Anyway, I'm hoping that "TRUTH MATTERS" becomes a ubiquitous slogan so I'm putting it out everywhere I can. I so hope and pray that we can start to turn around this cult of lies. Please help if you can. The safety of the world depends on it.

If lies increase profits for corporations, you will have to suffer for a while, yet.

If you ask me (and you don't have to!) it's all caused by a reducing lack of moral values and the fact that fewer people go to church, compared to years ago.

Hi Geraldine,
I am always sorry when the good presidents (Obama etc) are limited to 2 terms, but it certainly works when you've got someone like Trump.

Just hope there's another Obama next time
