Hiding The Truth

Posted Saturday, September 27, 2008, at 1:00 PM

Our Vice President hid the truth and it's a documented conspiracy. What lengths will politicians go to protect themselves? A long way apparently!

Here's what's documented...

Hiding weapons in unmarked boxes for shipment

Making those involved turn their backs for plausible deniability

Moving from one jurisdiction to another to avoid prosecution

Used unmarked boats

Wow... good thing I'm not talking about Dick Cheney, but at times most of us wonder what our politicians are up to behind our backs. The above documented conspiracy surrounds the Burr/Hamilton duel where the guy that's on the $10 bill gets killed.

The sitting Vice President Aaron Burr shot and killed Alexander Hamilton and was acquitted. The duel included hiding the dueling pistols in an unmarked box so the guys rowing the boats to New Jersey from New York (where dueling was illegal) could honestly say they didn't see the weapons, and all involved except the duelers turned their backs in the name of plausible deniability. The unmarked boats were row boats (I had to come up with something else to catch your attention!).

So politicians stretching the truth and conspiracy is nothing new to our political landscape. We've got the VP debates coming up soon and I expect to hear some pretty fantastic oratory stretching and distorting the truth from both sides. Since at least one of the debate participants has documented firearms use in their resume, please check your guns at the door.

That 'unmarked boat' grabber, almost qualifies you for a job as a 'Movie Director.' Nice piece of mind grabbing questioning of the current dueling (verbal pot shots), and dancing ('twist'ing of words), we are being assailed with.

Nifty article.

Shalom in Messiah, to one and all. Arley
