I don't mind saying that I'm a big fan of those who embrace intellectual honesty and all they do. For example, George W. Bush.  Last week when people were criticizing him for swaying, all I could do was chuckle. I don't know what he was thinking, I have no idea if he was thinking.  But whatever he did was consistent with him as a person. He's a sentimental guy who wants to comfort everybody and make sure everyone's happy.

Another Texan, one who embodies intellectual dishonesty is Alex Jones.  This freaking guy: when Bill Clinton was in office, Jones was one of his loudest critics locally. When Bush was elected, almost overnight Jones changed his tune.  After 911, Jones became one of the most despicable conspiracy theorists around, a "truther" one who promulgated unfounded theories.  Whichever way the wind is blowing, it seems this guy goes hard in the other direction. That's hard to respect.

Today, Jones got shouted down.  Another loudmouth had had enough.

To be a 911 truther is to be disrespectful to our nation and the people who died on that day.

I'm sure some folks will disagree, but I'm not as cynical as that.  Our government did not cause this tragedy.
