Veritas! A word that used to define presidential character. Truth? Where has it gone? It's flown the coop. Abandoned by the highest official in the land. The old truism, "When poverty comes in the door love flies out the window," has been reinvented to describe the White House: "When Chicago comes in the door, truth flies out the window." It began flying out when an army of left wing Pinocchios marched in with their flock of pigeons. Guano became their major export. What can we do? Wake up! Recognize that Paul Revere's call to arms, "The British are coming," has morphed into a new warning, "Your government is coming – for you, your money, your job, your privacy, your health care, your freedom."
