Lies and Misnomers

Lies, false statements and suspicious innuendos seem to be at the very heart of our society today.

Rampant GREED seems to be the only motivating factor in our world today.

It is time for a change.

It is time for the truth.

Is there ANY truth left any where in this world?

We are lied to, misled, and misrepresented constantly - day in and day out - all day long.

Everyone has something to "sell" you, usually misrepresenting and always lying about what they are selling.

Television ads are 95% lies and 5% misrepresentations. They are written on the 6th grade level of mentality, {this is the mentality level of 99.9% of high school graduates, and 50% of college graduates these days}.

A few examples to make my point:

1. Coca Cola ads state - the 'original' formula.

Total lie. The original formula had some cocaine in it and high fructose corn syrup (its main ingredient), and hydrogenated oils were not even heard of back then.

2. Vonage phone service - Showing new users crumpling up a piece of paper and stating: ''this is my last phone bill before switching to Vonage.''

That statement is, in itself, true, but misleading (misrepresentation). It implies that there will be no more phone bills by the previous provider after switching to Vonage, other than theirs.

Fact: Vonage only works with an existing land phone and a computer. You may only require the basic phone line into your home to run your computer and the Vonage attachment, but none the less you will still receive a bill from you basic phone provider.

They advertise only $14.99 a month. Again misleading, as they increase their charges annually. (After 3 years of service my Vonage bill was more that the original land line phone provider's bill with unlimited calling).

It is almost impossible to cancel this service, and you will never get to speak with a live person, as they do not provide you with a customer service number or technician.

3. Insurance ad by "repeal it" -

which is owned by the insurance conglomerates and corporate America.

They state that this "Obama care" bill was crammed through and was not wanted by the majority of the American public.

100% lies and misleading comments by some of those idiots in Washington and aspiring republican rising stars.

This 'health care plan' has nothing to do with health care at all. It is called "the affordable health bill". It puts restrictions on insurance companies and stops discrimination against who can get insurance at all, and who can get insurance coverage paid for, when it is needed. Nothing more - nothing less.

The fact is that this is the best legislature that regulates insurance coverage costs that actually protects the American people instead of the insurance companies.

The efforts, by the GOP, to repeal this law will only benefit the insurance companies and give them protection under the law to continue to overcharge, discriminate, and protect their massive profits and big bonuses all at the expense of the American people.

The claims by the GOP are misrepresented, half truths, and paid for by the corporations that bought them (republican/tea party members) to act as their mouthpiece in Washington. Neither the GOP nor the insurance companies are acting in the best interest of the American people.

Ads hitting the air waves for the GOP 2012 (now the 2016) Presidency campaign - verbally discriminating and discrediting our President, is a travesty unto itself.

It does not matter the party representing the USA, there should be some common decency regarding the use of innuendos, half truths, lies and this incessant negative campaigning that has enraptured our nation.

We have now become a negative representative government for the citizens of the USA, and certainly NOT a shining example for the rest of the world, as they view this awful (hateful) phenomenon with disgust and bemusement.

Politicians spew campaign promises that mean nothing, say nothing, promise everything, but deliver nothing, or just the opposite of what those promises are.

The 2 party system

We still have a two party system, but their goals have changed:

1. Democrats who represent the people with promises of progress toward improving the lives of the middle and low classes.

2. Republicans who represent corporate America and the wealthy class who promise those benefactors deregulation, lower taxes, and more power to exploit the people and their government.

3. Big business, large corporations, or monopolies, have absolutely NO interest in the American people, or the people of any other nation.

They have NO vested interest in equal rights, health care coverage for anyone, or even health care delivery itself.

They have no vested interest in clean air, clean water, or safe food supplies.

They have NO vested interest in alternative fuels to rid ourselves of foreign dependence, or dependence of petroleum at all.

There is not enough profit incentive to be made in alternative fuels.

These giants have only their own interests as their number one priority. Their foremost objectives are:

  • cheap labor at any cost to the employee,
  • no fringe benefits what so ever,
  • no restrictions on them what so ever,
  • no worker safety regulations
  • removal of anything else that stands in the way of TOTAL CONTROL
  • a guaranteed clear pathway to exploitation toward their ultimate quest - their equivalent to God, what they will always lie, cheat, steal and kill for: their net profits.

After the recent nuclear power melt down in Japan, the US government put a ban on imports from Japan due to the excessive radiation exposure there; after their nuclear power plant disaster following the Tsunami following the earth quake.

The only reason why am mentioning that disaster in this hub, is to present the argument that this ban by the government will in no way stand in the way of profits being made on the importing of Japanese foods.

It is a token gesture to appease the fears of the American people, so they will continue to buy the imported goods, in spite of the health risk factor to those people who eat those foods.

No-one really believes that any government ban will stop the making of these profits by corporate America.

Do not believe for one minute that the corporate America, for one second, entertained, or considered the thought of, actually taking this loss of revenue by not importing these tainted goods.

The 'potential' 'possible' loss of a few thousand lives after eating this tainted food, is merely considered "collateral damages" when measured against the preservation of those holy net profit margins.

Republicans and theirTea Party members have no shame and no intentions of helping anyone in this country except those who paid their way to Washington.

The sheep mentality continues

While the middle east struggles to overcome oppression, dictatorships, despots, theocracy and autocracy, the U.S. is implementing all these concepts, starting on the state level, without any challenge from the American people. Amazing as this may seem, it is fact.

We are so completely sheep like and brainwashed into accepting anything this government and our religious institutions dole out. This American behavior is truly as pathetic as the American people are apathetic.

There is NO WAY i will ever believe that these people in Washington were legally elected into these positions by 'sane' American people.

SOMEBODY please re-count those ballots -

OH, WAIT - we can no longer do that. We are at the mercy of those electronic voting machines (you remember the ones that our government promised would be 'honest' and 'true' votes).

We are now at the mercy of the concept of 'honest electronic vote' elections.

What fools we are.

What a joke on the people.

There are NO honest politicians remaining, or are in such a minority that their presences are totally irrelevant.

Tea Party Mentality

Conspiracy no longer just a theory

I have added a video that you must view in order to understand the ramifications of my words.

The wonderful State of Maine is now being assaulted and victimized by the New Republican Tea Party Regime. This has got to stop. Where are those "honest" government overseers? This is no longer a conspiracy "theory". There will be no more elections "by the people" and/or what we used to know as "the popular vote". Our future elections depend solely upon who has the best computer hackers that can change the total results the fastest.

When Americans rise up against the government here in the U.S. who will stop our government from "shooting the protesters" or arresting anyone who speaks out against this new regime?

For years we have stood by silent and watched oppression progress around the world and said, or did, nothing to stop it or help the oppressed. Now it is our turn - who will stand up for the U.S. now? There is no-one left to care.

When the American Republicans' ordinary citizens finally realize that their party has disintegrated into a regime for the sole purpose of promoting and protecting the wealthy, it will be too late for any of us to recover from it.

By that time, there will be only the two classes remaining: The minority (the wealthy and privileged) and the rest of us (their slaves). What other country will come to OUR rescue then?

I would rather be proven a "crackpot" who is paranoid and wrong; than to have our children, and theirs, become 'what i preach about' just to prove that i am right.

Power over the people

Silly but true

My two examples in the beginning of my daily rant, about the phone company, coca cola, etc.., may seem silly, out of place, and inappropriate in this article; but if you can even think that, there may be hope for us yet.

It is an example of how the government and corporate America; wall street and your religions, lead us down nonsensical pathways, of mundane problems and unimportant social issues, to mask their real agendas.

They create a smoke screen which everyone is "talking and arguing about", so we will not 'see', or even 'notice', what they are doing behind our backs, and in secret meetings behind closed doors that will affect our lives for years to come.

We must wake up the world, and look beyond our noses, and our own small insignificant agendas, at what is behind that smoke screen.

We must all take pause and look at the BIG picture for a change, and believe me when i tell you that "God" has nothing to do with their agenda; nor will "anyone's" God swoop down from heaven to rescue us from their evil doings.

We are totally on our own and at the mercy of the plutocratic and theocratic minorities.

      Thanks for your comments. My greatest fear is that our election progress has been compromised by those very people who intend to destroy the American dream. I keep saying, that as long as we have electronic voting machines without any way of recounting the votes, we are strictly at the mercy of the party with the best and fastest computer hackers. There are NO MORE popular votes taking precedent in this country.

      Hey,D. William, I am not surprised. Dutch Shultz, a New York City mobster during the 1930's when asked why he was going to move in a certain way against his adversaries, said that "People are Dumb". The many hubs I have written has attempted to get at why so many people consistantly vote against their true interests and allow the brilliantly conceived rightwing propaganda machine to mislead them everytime. The goal of these nefarious agents are quite clear, slave labor for the masses with a few aristocrats on top get richer. Who says slavery was abolished? It is alive in well as part of the rightwing agenda.

      Keep on keeping on reminding us all how, why and in what manner we are being fleeced.

      I will repeat myself. I do agree that both sides are equally guilty of screwing up this government. But, one has to admit that what is going on, state by state, by these crazy republican governors is way beyond acceptable for the average hard working citizen. This governor of Maine is way past the point of insanity. Since this is my original home state, i find him appalling and repulsive and he needs to get his ass kicked out of the state of Maine.

      d.william, I guess the best I can do here is to agree to disagree. I still have problems with both sides and feel some very major changes must be made. Both sides have some very screwed up ideas they are trying to shove down our throats. It certainly is not the government for the people anymore. To just focus on the sins of one side is to lose site of the bigger picture. Our country is being destroyed, and it is leadership on both sides causing this to happen. We need to clean house and start over in my opinion.

    • d.william profile imageAUTHOR


      8 years ago from Somewhere in the south

      I do agree with you in general principle. But at this time in our history, it IS the radical faction of the right wing inflicting all the injuries on the American people. To try and equalize the pain being inflicted just for political correctness would detract from the facts of this matter. The Republicans are the bad guys at this point. If they continue on the current path, unchecked, they will completely destroy our basic culture. There is no in between for the American people.

      I like this hub but disagree strongly with some of the comments. The assumption here is that all things good come from one side, and all things bad from the other. My opinion is there is good and bad on both sides. Neither party puts our best interest before that of their own interests, and probably never will. Looking at the good and evil of only one party makes us completely lose sight of the big picture, and that is exactly what they want. I am not very pleased with either party right now. Things would work much better if we had a single party and used majority vote for making decisions. This left and right war that is only getting worse doesn't help any of us.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I sure wish you were right about people rushing to the polls to vote, but alas, it really won't matter. I still believe that there will never be anymore legitimate voting in the country. All elections will be won based on who has the best computer hackers. I also believe that the GOP will stand at nothing to take over this government, and there will be another coup de main by them this year when the seats in the senate are up for grabs. Mark my words. We have not hit bottom yet. But we will before 2012.

      Do you know what i like about your hubs, facts. If the GOP ( Grand Old Party ) had their way, we, who would rather die than be a member of, would all be tied together and led into gas chambers and gassed, I'm not Jewish, but i feel their anguish. I truly believe the American people are starting to wake up and we will see a rush to the polls to vote for people who will work for the people. Great hub. Keep writing.

      Thank you all for taking the time to read and comment. And yes, i address the American arena firstly, but it does not mean that all this greed and hatefulness is confined to America. This seems to be a global trend. Maybe we are in the end times after all, although i do not believe much in predictions of gloom and doom, but i certainly do believe in the evil that is befalling us all. And it seems to be getting more prominent in all aspects of our lives.

      Ha. I love your comment about politicians being like whores. Made me laugh, even though it is closer to truth than not. I have to do the same thing from time to time about not tuning into the news. Too much of it is really wearing on your sanity. When i start calling the ignorant bastards names, out loud, like they are actually hearing me, i know it is time for a break. LoL

      d.william, man you are right on target. Not all, but most Politicians are like whores, they sell their time at very high prices and could care less what they have to do for the money. The days of Politicians actually representing us, or even caring about us, went away a long time ago.

      To tell you the truth, I took a few days off of watching the news or reading about any political crap, and I felt much better for doing so. Many follow this daily, but they also don't vote, pay any attention, and only bitch and whine when things don't go their way. This was a great hub and I'm loving the comments.

      There were a few bills introduced a while back that would have limited campaign contributions from big businesses and lobbyists, etc..

      That was the reason why the supreme court (or should i have called them the supremely corrupt court) declared that businesses would now enjoy the same status that individuals do. With this ruling any bills introduced to limit campaign bribing (ooops, i meant campaign contributing) would be automatically thrown out. I had no idea that the supreme court was so in the pocket of the corporate america until they started to make judgements pro business every time. And also after i found out the the Koch bros are constantly wining and dining the supremely corrupt court members.

      It sure would be nice to seem some changes made in how these monsters are selected and elected. [here i am referring to the supreme court and all other politicians.] They should at the very least have to take a 1st grader intelligence test before they can even run, then take a public oath to NOT bring their religious biases, to Washington with them. They should be limited to 2 terms, just like the president, and have their butts thrown in jail if they are caught taking money from any lobbyist, religious entity, or big business. Oh, and i forgot to add: they should have to pay into social security, and pay for their own insurance, and when they retire, get the same amount everyone else does through social security. Those bastards get their full salaries for life when they retire, and that is even if they only run for 1 dam term.

      You are right, there would be fewer people seeking public office, but those that do will be the more honest ones, (if that is at all possible).

      I often wonder if being elected as a representative of this great country was not viewed as a well paid career with lots of perks, not to mention retirement. How many would truly be interested in the job? Put some term limits in place and the list of hopefulls would drop considerably. Also if every candidate was given the same amount of money for their campaign and prohibited from using any of their own or outside money, would this change the election results?

      I tend to believe both of these things would change things dramatically. I just don't have a great deal of confidence in any of our current group, regardless of the (D) or (R) on their hat.

      OK - there are parts that seem to incriminate "all politicians" which is why my comment defends Democrats.

      8 years ago from Somewhere in the south

      Thanks for your comments. And you are correct in your remarks. As i stated above, yes, there are corrupt Dems as well as Reps, but those corrupt democrats and actually republicans who have infiltrated the democratic camp. L.O.L.

      (I say this because i know it really irks the republicans - they are so easily rattled).

    • d.william profile imageAUTHOR


      8 years ago from Somewhere in the south

      As always, your comments are welcomed and appreciated. I never say that the democrats do not have a few hidden republicans amongst them, but the majority do have the right idea.

    • Terry.Hirneisen profile image


      8 years ago from Shenandoah Valley

      Great Hub! Lots of passion and truth. I do think there are many (non-republican) politicians that still care and work hard for the people. Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont is a good example. Shackled as he is, I believe President Obama works for the people. I cannot think of a single Republican that does work for the people as evidence by their lock step behavior in being against Obama.

      Your rant on Health care is also excellent. Which shows I am right. We had enough politicians to stand up and get that done. We also have the walk out Democrats in Wisconsin fighting for the middle class. We have Some Democrats that do not care, but the Republicans are 100% infected.

    • d.william profile imageAUTHOR


      8 years ago from Somewhere in the south

      Thanks for commenting OP: I wish i could drop the R and D, but the point would be lost. It is not the democrats that are currently bringing the hatchets down on women, unions, teachers, government workers, the working class, the middle class, the elderly/retired, the gay community, NPR/PBS etc.. - and worst of all - Getting rid of Big Bird and tickle me Elmo? Really?

      Did you watch the video about the Gov. of Maine? He is giving all businesses in Maine bigger tax breaks, and tax breaks for anyone earning over $300,000.00/yr, while cutting the salaries (wages) of all state employees, and lowering the retirement money that current retirees are getting.

      Except his own - he made himself exempt from those wage cuts. What an ass hole. There were 3 or 4 names on the ballot for Governor of Maine. The votes were split and he won by getting 38% of the votes. what a joke. what an ass hole. and yes, i will say it again. what an ass hole. He is a business man with a shady past and questionable business ethics that made him well off. (I am fighting the urge to say it again) Can't fight that urge - what an ass hole.

      Great Hub D. William. You are right that the Republican party is bought and paid for by Corporate America. It can be seen in all of their current actions. The Koch brothers have inculcated their policies into them at their bi-annual conclaves as well as financing them. The Tea Party has also been financed by them. Old Poolman is correct that their is corruption on both sides but at least the Democrats aim at serving the needs of the middle and lower classes. The GOP does not care at all. They do lie to make it seem that way.

      d.william, great hub and I agree with you on most of your points. If you dropped the (D) and the (R) out of your text I would agree with you 100%. Both sides are equally guilty of most of the things you mention. Honestly, neither side is uncorrupt or completely honest with what they say as opposed to what they do. If they would quit fighting with each other we might get a few of these issues resolved for the better of the citizens of this country.
