After I’ve Made My Millions, Only Then Can I Tell the Truth

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We see everyday people pushing some agenda that involves millions, perhaps even billions of dollars. Once dishonest crooks get their millions of dollars and the source of that new money is exhausted, only then can the crook begin to tell the truth…especially if that “truth” means even more money.

I recall several years ago now, when Dr. David Mech, often proclaimed as the premier “expert” on wolves, lied, cheated, and stole his way through a rigged system that placed in his lap a lot of money for wolf research, etc. He made up stories to support his dishonest actions and to keep the cash flow coming. He got what he wanted. He got wolves illegally introduced into the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem so that he would have something to play with that just happened to pay great dividends. Once the cash cow was milked dry and the good Dr. had no more lies to tell, Mech began to whistle a different tune, even making statements that his original theories about wolves, like alpha males and wolves’ capabilities of “balancing” an ecosystem, were walked back to something more near the truth. Was there money to be had from this change of direction? More than likely.

Today, I read a long report from an environmentalist who made gobs of filthy money by pushing the lies about renewable energy and global warming. No, this isn’t Al Gore who wrote the report, but it could very well have been.

The author of this report tells about all the things he did to screw the public out of billions of dollars, I’m sure making him a filthy, dishonest, rich person.

Now that he’s made his billion dollars, he can comfortably claim that solar panels and wind mills are a waste of money and that they destroy the environment far greater than current methods of energy creation and use.

The point of all this is that we are suckers for these Flim-Flam sellers of magic elixirs. In their dishonesty and greed, void of any semblance of a conscience, they concoct some far out fantasy, such as global warming caused by you and I attempting to live a normal and decent life, embellish the concocted lie, which requires more lying, cheating, and stealing, and then rush in with a solution that yields them filthy rotten lucre, enough to fill a semi tractor trailer.

Oh, wait a moment. I think I just described the Hegelian Dialectic. I did. We are taken to the cleaners on a regular basis by these con artists, wanting so much to believe their rotten lies, allowing the crooks to make millions of dollars from it. And we still don’t get it.

Maybe next time it will be different? If I can just try that one more time.
