Convoluted Thoughts 2016-19

The truth distorts a telling of a lie

And a lie twists the truth in the telling

Plus, a falsehood deceives the reader from the truth

Leaving all to decide on what to believe or not.

 WHAT IS TRUTH?!

I came up with this thought the other day after reading a statement someone made about my favorite politician Donny. The facts were not included in the story about him and I did research what was said.  It, the declaration, made Donny something he was not, which is not unusual.

Anyhow, what is said in the news, other media, or on Facebook which goes against Donny or is for Donny makes all of us confused at times. This also goes for discussing each political party whereas one side is, of course, one sided and makes a plus or negative into whatever their aim is in the story. This is not fair to anyone and just perpetuates a false feeling, plus or minus, depending on who or what is the subject.

I guess I should not be surprised. I remember a few years ago where someone state, “I don’t check my postings for fact, I just post them.” In other words, that person did not care if it was true or not, an untrue point was being made. All other statements were then questioned as being factual or not, which made any or all suspect. Sad!!!!

I see this so much now, I doubt the authenticity of much that is put out in favor or disfavor of a politician.

WHAT IS TRUTH?
