Black and white

When is a lie the truth? Black or white? Can you say, “Waffle?”

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle is one of the most celebrated results of quantum mechanics and states that one (often, but not always) cannot know all things about a particle (as it is defined by it’s wave function) at the same time. This principle is mathematically manifested as non-commuting operators.” – google search

We used to say, “If you can’t tell the truth, wow them with bullshit.”

Our fearless leader lies? Gray? 40 million believe him? Who the hell goes and counts all the lies? Tolerated and embraced? Who defends this – bull(shit)? Lies? Someone looks mighty dumb, right about now, I know which side I’d rather be on. And, it’s not the side that just jumped off the bridge. Donut? Go find the article. Seek the truth. …poet and didn’t know it…

To be fair: An opinion is not fact. And, lies are not truth. Two places at once – impossible.

  1. The real damage being done is the chronic discrediting and erosion of trust for long-relied-upon publications like the NYT and mainstream media, from–of all places–The Oval Office itself. This has succeeded to the point where the breeding ground for conspiracy theories has become fertile and is spawning more elaborate, dark and fantastic ‘alternative facts’ that an enormous segment of the least educated among us latches onto and becomes true believers and spouters of.

    It is more than sad. It is more than tragic.
    It is almost irreversible. When there’s no longer any measure of trusted sources left, it becomes every person for him/herself.

    Keep writing your blog because it is like a little candle in the dark, doctor.

    • Thanks for the kind words. I’m trying to get back from politics but the news has been so compelling.

      • ….like you, most of the country is ‘trying to get back from politics’–as if the novel virus isn’t difficult enough.
