Candid assessments

Has anyone else noticed that credentials on the wall, titles in front of a name or letters after a name do not guarantee that a person is decent, honorable or trustworthy? Do we not have a right to expect truth, integrity, candidness and lawful conduct from our elected officials, politicians, preachers and anyone else in a position of trust?

Enough of this damage control, stonewalling, parsing of words and verbal dancing.

Most Americans are not stupid.

We have a right to know what is going on in every segment of our government. Tell us the truth.
