This blog is a collection of short stories and satirical observations, none of which is exactly true or false.
That’s because it’s easy to believe the unbelievable if you just want to. For example, bacon is a pork by product but who among us doesn’t like bacon? If you don’t eat meat but you choose to believe that it comes from a plant, well then it’s okay to eat – maybe even healthy. Hence, Baconplant.
There are two paths to baconplanting, self and public. Self is what you tell yourself in spite of the plain truth. For example, ‘I’m in great shape’, ‘No, I never said that’ and ‘children are the best thing that ever happened me’, etc. Sometimes it’s better to believe what you need to in order to deceive yourself.
Public utterances are a different animal altogether and can end up costing great deals of money, reputation and lives. For example, ‘if the glove don’t fit you must acquit’, ‘yes, there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq’, or ‘Donald Trump will never, ever be the Republican presidential nominee.’ They are the means to an end suggested to deceive others.
You be the judge.
