Trust No One

I want you to find out what he’s got under his fingernails.

—’Don Corleone’, The Godfather

I may have a bad head cold, but I think I have a healthy attitude when it comes to conservative politicians.

Over at The Other McCain, in a post by Smitty, commentator Michael Spangler remarked about the House hearing where Jonathan ‘Bring On The Stupid’ Gruber was the main witness testifying:

He’s using the “Obama Defense”. It’s better to appear stupid rather than guilty. But the Republicans aren’t going to repeal Obamacare anyway so it’s really just a show hearing.

With the exception of Gowdy, he’s in it to win it.

I replied:

The verdict is still out on Mr. Gowdy.

K-Bob replied to moi:

He’s freaking fabulous on certain topics, but I’m afraid he’s been quite definite in his support for legalizing the illegal alien population.

As far as I’m concerned, we conservatives are at the stage where we should withhold placing our Trust in all conservative politicians for much, much longer — if at all — than we used to.  We have been burned way too many times, especially since 2010, to ever so easily again invest our lives, our fortunes, our Freedoms, and our Liberties in the hands of such people.

Sustained Honor and Virtue are rare attributes found in most Americans today.  Morality has become deranged.  Behavior that was once worthy of the practitioner being shamed and shunned by Society is now tolerated, accepted as Normal [‘Whadda you expect? He’s a (fill-in-the-blank).’].

Toleration is a fine thing until it gets you enslaved.

Don’t trust and always verify…

…and listen to Frankie ‘Five Angels’:

Michael Corleone: C’mon Frankie… my father did business with Hyman Roth; he respected Hyman Roth.

Frank Pentangeli: Your father did business with Hyman Roth; he respected Hyman Roth…but he never trusted Hyman Roth!
