If you can get on the Internet and if you're reading this, then you ARE on the Internet - then you have an obligation to do your own fact checking.

Take a topic, and for this exercise, use one of your politicians. If you live in New Jersey, then use Jon Corzine, the former governor. Put his name into the search box on a search engine, like Google or Bing. Then, hit Enter, and read a few articles about Jon Corzine.

Now, think about what the opposition in this case, Republicans have said about Mr. Corzine. After all, the Republicans must have said plenty, since Jon Corzine was defeated in his run for a second term as governor.

Now and this is the important part - try to make up your mind about whether the Right Wing, or the Republicans, have told you the truth about Jon Corzine. Or if they lied about Mr. Corzine.

There is nothing so important as finding out whether, for example, FOX news is broadcasting false information - which they do daily - as the Republican Party's manure spreader. Glenn Beck, for example, is not a newsman, and he's not a journalist. He's a political hack who helps the Right Wing to tell lies, and to misdirect the population.

Ann Coulter, for another example, is a similar type, who lures you into thinking that she will not mislead you when that is exactly what she is doing! Ann Coulter has developed a reputation for telling the Big Lies. In case you wonder why you haven't seen her on television in the past couple of years, it's simple. She has told so many whoppers, spread so much manure about the opposition, that the Republicans have her touring colleges like a standup comedian. But they keep her off the television, simply because they know that no one will believe a word she says, if they are hearing the words coming from her mouth. So she stays on the road, and off the television.

That's our lesson for today, friends and lovers of honesty. If you lose your reputation for telling the truth, for being honest, for having integrity " well, then you have to stay out of the spotlight. Remember the old saying, "there's no second chance to make a first impression?" To which we add, "There's no right way to do the wrong thing." Putting out trash, like they do on FOX News, is doing the wrong thing.
