Mean What You Say, And Say What You Mean, In 2014

Written by Audrey Russo on December 29, 2013

A half truth is a whole lie.” ~Yiddish Proverb

So, 2013 is getting the boot…and good riddance. Glad to say Ta-Ta to:
— Super-high unemployment (the media numbers don’t reflect the truth).
— The discovery that–not ALL those who thought the government was watching them, should be on meds.
— Obama’s first act of Obamacare was: Giving the IRS Viagra.
— The neglected and bludgeoned Middle Class lost more of its power.

But most of all…Ciao, Au Revoir, L’hitraot, Adios, Bubye to: The LIES!
— Lies about the IRS targeting of Conservatives
— Lies about the NSA spying on ordinary citizens
— Lies about Fast & Furious that killed Border Agent Brian Terry
— Interminable lies about what happened in Benghazi, Libya that killed four American citizens (three of which were US Veterans)
— The Obamacare lies from Obama’s own pie hole: “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” and “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” 

If I missed any it was from being overwhelmed by the audacious lack of integrity…

We are all aware, with the sinful imperfection of mankind, that politicians have always had a problem with paltering. BUT, what we may NOT realize is: Our politicians reflect our character.

We are to hold ourselves, and therefore our politicos, to a higher standard. Realizing we have the ability to sit in our own slop, and failing to reach for the soap, is settling for a lower standard and finding a “new normal” in our debris.

THAT’S un-American and an insult to our Founders who put ALL on the line for this amazing nation.

I believe there’s REAL hope for 2014…and it’s in OUR hands, not the hands of those attempting to rule OVER us.

Let this coming year be the year we: “Mean what you say, and say what you mean, in 2014.” In other words: Be a person of your word, and be forthright concerning Truth. The standard begins with us.

Will this be difficult to accomplish? Yes…but the result will bless ourselves AND myriad others.

May God bless you in 2014…and may YOUR actions bless others!

Shalom through strength…
