I received a very interesting email yesterday. One that gave me pause and set my "truth-o-meter" into the red zone.
In the body of the email was an assertion that many of the Laws that have been passed by Congress contain language specifically exempting its members from the very laws they have passed.
That was a new one on me. So I set out to find the truth. As usual, there are two sides to every story, and yes, there appear to be many laws - the Civil Rights Act - being one of them, that are in question.
The only ".gov official list" I could find with a cursory Google search did not mention the recent Health Care Legislation, or The Americans with Disabilities Act, but these too, are cited frequently in many blogs and articles on this subject that appear to have more current information.
This blog is not meant to be a forum for political debate, and this specific day's post is dedicated to "truth". But if the food for thought I have offered compels you, I suggest further investigation is in order. If your research finds this to be true, then the implications are alarming.
I will also forward on to many of you the email I received. I don't often do this, but in this case I sense at least some of you will want to "pass along" this thought -provoking issue.
I leave you with a quote from one of the greatest Statesmen of our time:
The truth is incontrovertible,
malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it,
but in the end; there it is.
- Sir Winston Churchill
