The Nina Pinta and Santa Maria, with Christopher Columbus, never landed on the coasts of the USA, or any North American coast. I was taught a lie in school, for years. I think they still teach the same lie.(Along with others). Technically,he did not ‘discover any land, any New World, because the lands he ran into on his way to India/Asia were already inhabited, with Native ‘Americans’. Peoples who had already populated the area’s. Chris did get close, by accident, but no cigar. Or maybe he did get a Havana because he did land in Cuba. I will give him some credit, he did find some ‘new people’ to tell others about. He did somewhat prove that the earth was round and not flat as many ignorant people believed,at that time. He was a great explorer. Though, some say he was not so great to the ‘natives’ he found. He tortured them and enslaved them, which to me is also ironic that the USA would celebrate ole Chris with a national holiday.
I realize more EVERY DAY, the lies we were/are told by the powers that be through media and educators(government influenced).
What was all the government shut down about? Was it the Republicans in the senate don’t like President Obama and his Obamacare?. Is it because the USA does not have enough money to pay it’s bills? Or is it that Obamacare does not work on the internet? Does the website not work because we ran out of money and cant pay our internet bill? The Debt ceiling had something to do with it, because it got raised. Kind of backwards thinking actually. Debt means you are in the hole, so the way I see it is ,we actually just dug the hole a bit deeper. Some of the truth of the shutdown is in this article
One main point I think should be taken from this is “Perhaps the biggest of the big lies is that the government will not be able to pay what it owes on the national debt, creating a danger of default. Tax money keeps coming into the Treasury during the shutdown, and it vastly exceeds the interest that has to be paid on the national debt.” The USA is not out of money. We The People are giving money daily to the government, via taxes taken from our pay checks and the numerous taxes we pay daily on fees and gasoline and purchases. The money for paying employees, and maintenance and upkeep of parks and government buildings is already budgeted and set aside. Just as our SSI and Medicare is. (supposed to be). The money was/is there. Even IF the monies were frozen (they were not) pay does not come at the end of each day. The reason people were furloughed and parks were closed and gliches occured with food stamps is because the evil President and his liberal crohnies were blackmailing those that are trying to save this country , by deceiving We The People into believing the sky will fall ,if we don’t have our government to hold it up. The President wants MORE MONEY to run HIS empire. The senate has asked the president for a budget, and to keep to the budget. The president has refused.

We believe what ever ‘they’ tell us. Truth and lies. Some of us get lucky and we hear the truth we know it, and believe it. Sometimes we get experienced and we learn the truth. WE ‘got’ Celiac, so we KNOW the truth about wheat. Some of us get caught up in the rhetoric. Some of us know the truth but are too afraid to stand up and point out the lie. Some of us would rather be dumb and never search out the truth, never take responsibility. Some of us don’t want to admit we are wrong, our pride keeps us down. Some are willing to loose their freedom, but not their lives because they have no hope for change. Even though they voted for it. Some are willing to loose their lives for freedom because they know the only hope is the Truth.
