The ultimate spin! and showing off Knowledge

Showing Off Knowledge

A person who wants to show off his knowledge will get upset if others fail to recognize what he knows. But a person who has humility will not demand recognition, and will not be bothered if others are unaware of what he knows (unless there is some practical difference involved). An example of when it effects you is when the other person who is wrong, insists it is done their way, and you have to live with a bad result. It is not showing off to want to live without errors in your life. If you are in control of yourself, you can speak up for yourself. As it says in "ethics of the fathers", If you are not for yourself, who will be?

Ask yourself, "What actual difference does it make if this person is or is not aware of what I know?"

You've got to admire the political "spin" politicians can put on the facts.

  No matter what side of the AISLE you're on, THIS is FUNNY and VERY telling!   
 It just all depends on how you look at some things...
Judy Wallman, a professional genealogy researcher in southern California , was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Congressman Harry Reid's great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in   Montana  in 1889.  Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common ancestor.
 The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows  in   Montana  territory: 

 On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription: 'Remus Reid, horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.' 
 So Judy recently e-mailed Congressman Harry Reid for information about their great-great uncle. 
 Harry Reid: 
 Believe it or not, Harry Reid's staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her genealogy research:
"Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory . His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed." 
NOW THAT's how it's done, Folks! That's real POLITICAL SPIN
