Lying to Congress is a crime

If that was so most congress people would be in jail,,, that only applies to you and me,,, apparently they have immunity,,, WTF ?
Bearing false witness is their most common practice.

I'm just so happy that YOU are on board with the situation and can finally see it for what is is, Martin.

Praise the Lord!

If one feels he/she would have to lie just don't say anything or do a Hitlarly and say I don't recall.

Saying nothing isn't lying.

Problem solved.

Of course, saying nothing might still reserve your spot on the cattle car, but whatever...

I think Martin just realized that things might just not be on the up and up like he thought for all those decades.

I am going to lie down for a while till the shock passes.

Yep, that's a fact Jack!

What comes after this revelation is still in serious question though.

I got it, a serious letter of protest and a demand they all resign,,,,by Tuesday!

Just a point of view... at 84 you should have a pretty good idea how we have achieved the corruption we have in congress, you lived through it to get here. It would be a book length explanation to show what's different and when it took place for anyone else to get a proper understanding. If you don't know then you should have spent less time with red heads and whiskey and maybe a little more time in church if they would have you.

I Just sighed on and saw your reply.
In defence of my impugned character (by you) I must admit to living in the moment for some time early in my life as a dedicated to the death of me bachelor,,, it is possible, or not that you have experienced something similar,,, before your sainthood was declared,,, by you.
Having pledged my troth and given my oath to my present day wife of the last 46 years any member can now trust me with his naked, nubile teen age female kin,,, I promise not to pat them on their head till their pants fall off.

It is however, quite legal for Congressmen and Senators to lie to Congress. Remember when Harry Greed said that Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes. After the election he was called out on that and he said "It worked didn't it?". It's also legal for members of Congress to engage in insider trading on the stock market. Rules don't apply to them. Good to be immune members of a criminal enterprise like US Government. Not so for the Peasants tho.

Well you just weren't paying attention or were naive, because our pols have always been liars.

Now that you have figured that out, maybe you can move on to the next epiphany, that those same liars were lying when they told you, well...... practically anything.

So all those wars we fought and won nothing over the last 75 years weren't really about what you were told and believed they were about.
Nor were 'our enemies' really our enemies..... well not until we made them so.

But since you already know about truth about the Easter Bunny, might as well know the truth about the War Fairy you have believed in all these years.

About sums it up...

But, in Martin's defense, they have stopped even trying to hide their lies and, on top of that, openly proclaim their hatred of the US Constitution. You know, the Constitution they've all signed an oath to support and defend but now work hard to destroy (I think that there's a word for that involving hanging)...

Makes it easier for even the blind to see...

Perhaps it's because 95% of 'filers actually have a life? You can tell from my post count I do.

I only come here for the humor in your posts, and to get "educated" by juanni.

And occasionally to buy something.
