We also think we know the moral of the story. At least I thought I know it. The moral of the story is not to lie, right?
WRONG, it took me forty years to make this important discovery and now it is time to share it with you, but do not tell anybody!
The truth about the moral of the story is very simple. Simple enough that we could not see it at first glance, I do not think that anybody wanted us to see it either.
You see, after all the lies the crying and portending that the wolf is coming, the wolf caught up with the little boy, and believe me it was not beautiful sight!
Why am I saying all of that, will I tell you that little red riding-hood was an old woman?
The boy is not really a boy it is the Republican Party, the president and the media. The cry is not because they are bored, with nothing to do while they are watching over the sheep. It is an intentional cry, and by coincident it happens every two years!
Wait it is even more interesting, because they are afraid we might not believe them or get bored with their cries they have different names for these important crying sessions, they call one mid-term election, you know what they call the other one!
The cry is not really screaming, but all the tactics we have to live with every single day until the end of the election. You want an example I have many to tell.
Now, we have to hear what Osama said every single morning. Osama said he will attack and of course, we need to believe him. Few months ago, our president told us it does not matter if we capture Osama or not because we destroyed, Al-Qaeda and he is a man on the run. It was different time and may be our president was referring to a different Osama all together!
September every other year is a good time to debate if we should stay in Iraq or leave! We need to understand that Sadam has no links to Al-Qaeda, but the war in Iraq is part of the war on terror and unless we fight evil out there, they will fight us here. Why this is difficult to understand, our president and many congressional leaders often wonder.
Assuming we are bunch of sheep and our Shepard see the danger in Iraq and we believe him because we are sheep. So we have to win in Iraq, but if all the signs are saying, we are losing our people, our resources our credibility with no return on investment. Should the question continue to be stay or leave?
Alternatively I would think, the question becomes who can change a strategy of three years that brought destruction to the Middle East and US, but little that I know, our leaders are debating instead if leaving is redeployment or cut and run. Moreover, nobody seems to answer this important question!
If you need more examples, here you go.
