Perhaps the most commonly know and sometimes only known fact about George Washington is that he could not tell a lie.

We know a bit about his wars the crossing the Potomac and maybe one more. By we here of course I’m not referring to those who know more, of course we know who the minority whip is, but do we?

Could there be something to this “not lying” thing?

Without going to far into irrelevant personal history, I have from time to time encountered those whom many would consider enlightened, they seem to share at least this one characteristic, they could not lie.

So I wonder do you think maybe Washington had achieved enlightenment?

So again I ask:

If a movement becomes enlightened, can it Father a Nation?

And here’s a link to a story about folks that may not want to be bothered by truth.

Cute! I am guilty of avoiding watching fox news. I try and watch Link and free-speech TV some. I watch ABC or something for local news. I'm still annoyed with CNN's late reporting of certain things. It began to feel too much like censorship when you didn't hear a peep about things until they go viral. Trolls come out come out where ever you are! They of course can't be bothered to find out what they have been misinformed on. I'm beginning to believe not only are they selective readers but poor ones as well.

It is hard even for trolls to outright attack truth, they just lie a lot and let you decide.

Truth has its own power, that's what makes it so damn useless.
