    Politics are full of lies, deceit, and false promises. One of the major deceits is that the President is the commander and chief. He may be so in title, but there are too many people who stay in power long before the president is in power, and long after. These are the people...

    Ranting

    The next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money. A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some...

    Avoiding The Question

    I am watching an interview on TV and the politician is not answering the questions asked. He is saying his line and whatever he wants to say but avoiding answering any of the tough questions that people watching would probably want answered usual lines. "I can't comment on that...

    Political Draft
