What I do disagree with is pretending that any of us have the slightest idea what Romney would actually do as president. I don't think he knows. He certainly hasn't told us.

Haven't seen one of those yellow bracelets yet. I'm sure they're coming. We should all wear both of them as we are all both of them, for to LIVE is to LIE.

Can Mitt's Big Lies Lead the Way Come Election Day?

Mitt Romney at times seems close to closing that sale with the entire American electorate. In just a few more weeks, with a bit of luck and his bushel of billionaire bucks, he just might beat Barack Obama to become the 45th president of the United States.

Why Romney the Closer Is a Consumer Nightmare

Mitt Romney is the poster child of big business expediency, where truth is less important than closing the deal. And if he gets elected we'll see a reprise of the Wild West days that ended in the 2008 crisis.

"A debate is where truth goes to die." That was the first line out of the mouth of Dr. R.H. Flutes, head of the Lying Institute of America. Following the first debate between Romney and Obama, I decided to visit him once again.

Debate, Lies and Videotape

Self-proclaimed pundits have had a field day claiming that everyone on the debate podium "lied". But as with any word in the English language that is over-used (and thereby trivialized), this may be a time to reflect on that word.

The Real Romney

Peter Clothier | Posted 12.04.2012 | Politics
Peter Clothier

The pundits were telling us, before last night's Great Debate that such occasions reveal the real man. In Romney's case, that proved disastrously true. And the real Romney turned out to be a steroid version of the same man we have been watching all along

CRAP

If we won't let our children lie or BS us and get away with it, surely Republicans should be held to the same standard. Cow dung has good uses, but not in political campaigns. Cut the CRAP.

Telling the truth (to myself first) is a sure sign that I am willing to own up to what isn't working in my life (and why it's so scary to tell the truth in the first place).

As the age of insanity rolls along, lying has reached a new level in political activism. Apparently, you can lie freely now. I decided to talk to Dr. R.H. Flutes, head of the Lying Institute of America, to explain the lying epidemic sweeping this country.

Paul Slansky | Posted 10.08.2012 | Politics
Paul Slansky

Your wife has a horse entered in the Olympics and you're not going to watch the event, whenever it's even on? This is a statement that rings so patently and idiotically false that it exempts all of his future utterances from the need to be taken seriously, or really even listened to.

Can we learn to be happy in spite of life happening -- or rather, because life is happening? In this moment, life is reason enough to be happy. And any moment we believe we have to wait for our happiness, we're believing a lie.

"Lies" is such a harsh word. But every day we utter words that we know aren't true. Sometimes we do it to make someone else feel better. Other times, it's ourselves we are hoping to protect. Here are a few of our favorite examples. Feel free to add some of your own.
