Flynn's lies no big deal because everyone lies

What is the big deal?

The Democrats are up in arms about Gen. Mike Flynn admitting he lied to the FBI. The FBI lied to us. Bill Clinton lied to us. Hillary Clinton lied to us. Loretta Lynch lied to us. Former FBI Director Jim Comey lied to us. President Barack Obama lied to us.

Donald Trump does bend the facts a bit at times. And the sun comes up and the beat goes on.

We have come to expect, and unfortunately put up with, them telling lies. As Bill Clinton would say, "That depends of what the word ‘lie’ means." Remember "I did not have sex with that woman?"

Oh well. By the way, the senator from New York ran off at the mouth about the tax reform bill adding another trillion dollars to our national debt. How about that one? We had better look out for the goose which lays the golden egg. That is, those who create jobs.

The past three administrations, including that of George W. Bush, lied without breaking stride. The doors to our prisons are welcoming more and more of those we have voted for and have sent to Washington, D.C. I told the truth and went to the slammer for 10 days and my attorney got paid and went home.

Mike Nifong, the former district attorney in Durham, deliberately lied, admitted telling a lie, got one night in jail and was fined a modest amount when he almost destroyed the lives of five Duke lacrosse players. He was held in criminal contempt for lying to a judge while pursuing rape allegations in the Duke case.
