Hmm, Lying (or dementia) vs. Torture – Which is worse?

Ok, I’ve heard enough, how about you? Is it even worth the time and effort to speak trying to stir up drama and controversy with this whole Nancy Pelosi vs. CIA issue? Is it worth my time typing this post? Probably not. I’m Canadian and can’t vote, don’t care for or dislike Nancy Pelosi and this has nothing to do with politics. Just the media. Find something worth talking about or go back to 30 minutes a day, please.

Here is my rant – keep reading though, there are much more important topics to follow…

I find it astonishing that there are people in this world who truly think that outing Pelosi for either lying or simply not having the capacity to remember all things spoken to her is more important than the topic at hand. The US has been torturing people, makes no bones about it yet feels justified in condemning the UAE for their use of torture, stating that they “cannot trust those who employ torturous methods”.  Here in this great country, those same people would prefer to spend time cranking up the media engine to turn your attention to a lie rather than the real crime of torturing people. Apparently we shouldn’t trust ourselves either.

She lied, fine, kick her from her post, just make sure you do it after you get rid of those who were involved in torturing people and lying about that. It’s all about priorities.

My preference would be to hear positive news daily instead of the crap that is on all day everyday. In lieu of that, can we please focus and prioritize the topics based on actual relevance and severity?

Lying is bad, torturing is worse. It is truly that simple.

If you’ve got a comment that is in disagreement with that, please post it and make sure to include your name so I can put it on the “special” list.
