Political Posturing Versus Honesty – Domestic And International Sabotage
June 25, 2011 Leave a comment
In the ritual of politics, the art of deceit (either through lying, omission or conflictory action) is, apparently a necessity. Politicians want to announce what they they believe their respective constituencies want to hear (“on the record”), but their actions tell much more about what they truly desire. I have discussed this type of two-faced conduct more than once in The Internationalist Page Blog, and with numerous other blogs which I author through the TNNWC Blogosphere.
An Illustrative case-in-point follows: An entire legislative body vociferously condemns a president’s participation in a military incursion, claiming an “abuse of a certain ‘War Powers Act‘ ” — even citing that the president’s action is unlawful as well as distasteful.
Ironically, after condemning the president’s action by an overwhelming majority, the same representitives of the populace agreed to continue funding the ‘allegedly legal’ activity. This would seem to be tacit support of a military action that this same hypocritical pack of self-righteous and pedantic prevaricators had just condemned in the most severe terms.
An excerpt from a New York Times article follows. Please read it, and come back here [ I’ll be waiting impatiently…and come back soon because you know how much I worry]:
The House of Representatives dealt a symbolic blow to President Obama on Friday by resoundingly failing to approve a bill authorizing the contentious military operations in Libya. But the House stopped short of a total desertion of a war-time president by also rejecting a measure to limit financing to support the military operations.
Entrepreneurs, conducting their businesses globally (refer to TNNWC’s International Connections Service – “ICS“) have no need to posture, position and lie. They are truly the world’s future “citizen ambassadors.” And their greatest thrust will be in the areas of a) honest commerce, and b) the spirit of cameraderie. Some helpful links follow:

Hypocrisy, duplicity, posturing and traditional “professional representation” and “ambassadorial” functions are inefficient, destructive and unsustainable.
Internationalists, Business Leaders, and Champions of Social and Humanitarian Reform – you have a noble calling that becomes louder with every passing day. Please join us in the Global Interworked Cooperative Business Community (GICBC) Initiative.
