Obama Honors Gates for Civility

Corruption, Cultural Intelligence, Government, Military
Who, Me?

Obama made it clear today….civility is the Washington D.C. substitute for integrity.  Go along with with military-industrial complex and you get the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  Speak truth to power, and you lose your job.  Land of the free and home of the brave?  Not in Washington, D.C.

Phi Beta Iota: These are smart people.  To tell the lies they do, to behave as they do, is not out of ignorance.  It is the elevation of personal greed and political ideology over integrity.  The Republicans are just as guilty–one bird, two wings, same stink.
