Lie has long legs

In Argentina, the lie has long legs. It survives from generation to generation. How long are we going to allow him to win the battle?


Lie has short legs, “they say. Let's see.

When Bill Clinton was in his second term as President of the United States, he had a little problem. She had no better idea than to have oral sex a few times by a White House employee. I'm sure you remember the lady's name, Monica Lewinsky. Obviously the fact came to light. He denied it, until he had to accept it, cornered by the evidence against it.

Clinton ate a Senate trial. But you know why? For lying. Perjury. Behind the perjury came Obstruction of Justice. Which was the reason, between the two, why he could be dismissed. The vote in both houses ended up almost favouring it. But the “Lewinskygate” ended the aspirations to President of Al Gore. Vice Clinton, who intended to succeed the Southern one, at the end of his two terms. The American people forgave him his sexual infidelity. And that's what they're pretty paced. But he was never forgiven for lying.

Here, the lie has long legs.

They're lying to us here since elementary school. It is proven that Saint Martin made the crossing of the You 're sick. Mostly, on a stretcher, dragged by a mule. That many of his soldiers crossed them the same way. The white horse and Cabral doesn't appear in any documents of the time...

I say, is it not much more monumental that the Army has performed such a feat in the conditions in which they actually did it? Don't you magnify them ? Just imagine how cold they've been. At that time, the polar didn't exist...

Why they lie to us is a good question. But the best, the one we have to do is

Why do we let them lie to us, without punishing them?

“ I saw the Gendarmerie take it.” “Scioli won.” “Lowering inflation is easy.” “We're back but now we're good.” “The one who deposited dollars will get dollars.” “It was 30,000.” “Today we can say that we have achieved 5% poverty.”

Politicians are the ones who lie to us the most. We know that. They're not the only ones. But if an actor lies to us, it doesn't affect us in our lives or in our children's lives . When a politician lies to us, yes. And a lot. But that doesn't seem to matter to us. It's like we naturalize the lie.

The goal with Diego's hand. Maybe the biggest lie in our sport, we're not ashamed. Almost like we're proud. It's wrong. Very bad.

We live together. We forgive the lie. Without realizing that a society cannot advance deception. Like a couplecan't do it. I want to believe that we still teach our children not to lie. But we take it to the trumps against the teachers who postpone them.
