   I was doing some research today related to schizophrenia and it occurred to me that I had stumbled upon the answer to the question regarding the politicians in D.C.  Now, hear me out and see if you agree:

   Let's identify schizophrenia:  it is a brain disorder that affects the way a person acts, thinks, and sees the world.  It causes an "ALTERED PERCEPTION OF REALITY, often a significant loss of contact with reality".  Doesn't this describe the behavior of most of the federal politicians?

   But wait!  Schizophrenia may cause the affected person to hear things that don't exist, speak in strange or confusing ways, believe that others are trying to harm them, or feel like they are constantly being watched.  O. K., I guess you could also include Obama's media.

   With such a blurred line between the real and imaginary, schizophrenia makes it difficult, even frightening, to negotiate the activities of daily life.   In response, people with schizophrenia may withdraw from the outside world (or their constituents and life outside of The Beltway) or act out in confusion and fear.

   I have to question common people who are living with this diagnosis.  How different is it from what is currently displayed in Washington?   I am not making light of having the diagnosis.  I am saying that it may be a little more commonplace than we are aware.

   I was recently called as a witness in a court hearing.  I am still assessing the meaning of what I went through.  I like to look at my little town as a microcosm of the entire United States of America.  I have asked for wisdom to relate my experience in court to what my fellow Americans experience.
   I took the stand as a witness and was sworn in to tell "the truth, the whole truth", so help me God.  The attorney, who had not met with me previously, asked me some questions.  As I was answering the questions, the other attorney kept rising from her chair and my testimony was suspended.  After several times of the other attorney rising, the Judge told me there were rules related to my testimony, and would I just answer the questions.  Well, that was what I was doing before that attorney kept interrupting.  Obviously, her Mama didn't teach her any manners, but I'm sure His Honor probably already knew that.
   So, my question is this:  if I swear to tell "the truth, the whole truth" and I am prevented from telling it, why do they want me to swear to do what they don't want me to do?  A little piece of the truth implies a lie, distorting the truth.  Does the Court want the truth or not?
   In these troubling times with our own federal government and news media so out of control in distorting the truth, I have to wonder how my little experience relates to all of that.  Have the courts always distorted testimony to imply a lie with a small piece of the truth?  That is how Satan operates.
   Yes, Virginia, everything always comes back to God's Word.  I am certainly petitioning for wisdom from My Father for the answer.
