Open Forum: Stop wasting time

E-mail this article \ Print this article


I have been watching the presidential candidates do their dog-and-pony shows for the past several months, and have come to a couple of conclusions.

They lie to us. They know that they lie to us. We know that they lie to us. They know that we know that they lie to us.

They also waste time. For example, they accuse their opponents of making false statements. ‘‘False statements” is a three-syllable phrase. ‘‘Lie” is a one-syllable word.
