Catching THE LIE before it’s too late. How #Santa_Is_Retiring is saving ManKind from himself. A juicy Topic for TV Talk Show Hosts. A Subject for Hollywood Animators, never explored.

DATELINE:  Tuesday, February 10, 2015 - 3:55 PM CST

Enter: The Lie.  There goes the Neighborhood.
The One Sinful and Sin-filled Syllable
 that has changed the Course of
Global History.

Please allow me introduce myself to you. I’m Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith (@ASK_Koopersmith), a Chicago Creatif who ‘has had it.’ On the Morning of February 9 (that also marked my 62.5TH Birthday) when I rolled over, a Thought occurred to me from out of the Blue.  At that moment, I knew I had to start a new 12 Step Group called:

Liars Anonymous ©2015

that contains over

Earthly Members as of  World-O-Meters – on Tuesday February 10, 2015 – 10:43 AM CST found on line at:


However, from that Select Population, I am prone to think that many of them, will surely, openly and overtly lie and then lie again by saying that they are not Liars.  Such is the Cycle.

LET ME EXPLAIN:  Liars Anonymous is Part and Parcel of my Santalogical Study (defined as a deep Concern revolving around the Universal Figure known as Santa Claus, a beloved Saint who distributes Gifts to those who are ‘nice’ and not naughty in which Lying falls at the Top of that List) that I began on November 11, 2014.  Its adjoining Entry on my Blog called Koopersmithin’ dated:

Cancel Christmas! Santa Is Retiring. Say Bye-Bye to Buy-Buy. How Chicago Creatif ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith. is saving Mankind from himself & herself.   

WITH THIS BLOG ENTRY #1183, may I ask:  How many Liars have you interviewed during your long and illustrious Career talking with so many interesting People?  The Reason I ask is that I am 62.5 years old (as of February 9) and the older I get the more I see ‘n spot “The Liars’ amongst us.  For the Sake of Sanity and proper Reasoning, I am extremely IRKED & PEEVED by what ‘The Liars amongst us’ are getting away (with). So much so that I am writing a Book (with its accompanying Screenplay) that addresses this Issue that needs a Tissue (on many Occasions), as Lying is a Tear Jerker when We think of the Repercussions that it generates, if left to alone to ferment.

The Bottom Line is that ‘The Lie’ is a complete Time-Waster and We are all living on BT: Borrowed Time.  What We waste away today is not going to be magically tacked on during our last Week of Life.   Lying causes Confusion/Despair and sets us back in whatever Action We are trying to accomplish because ‘The Fact’ did not match the Allegation; nor did it substantiate as being ‘The Truth.’

Q:  Who likes to be lied (to)? 

A: No one except Woman about their Age; Men about their Sexual Prowess and Fanatics of all Stripes about the Righteousness of their Cause. 

The Aftermath of a Lie (aimed at the Person/Group [the Victim/Recipient/Deceived] that was ‘lied to’ means going back to ‘Square One’ that results in losing precious Time, an irretrievable Commodity) and not knowing WHO can be trusted. Instinctively, you trust a Person who is honest as Honesty is the most important Virtue a Person can have and hold.  Once Truth is distorted or destroyed, The Lie spreads at phenomenal Speeds, especially so with the Onset and Proliferation of Social Media Networks. 

I have collected a Plethora of Lies and Falsehoods (blatant and obscured) for my Creative Multi-Level Project by employing this Angle that grabs the Public’s Attention.  Many are One-Line Zingers that are as humorous as they are that stinging. Without a Doubt, Lying is a Curious Topic of Conversation as the 3,563 Blog Readers can attest.

By using Santa (who is the most recognizable Figure in Pop Culture History as his Career began 1,600 years ago in Turkey and culminated in being ordained as St. Nichols) by having him ‘retire’ because Santa is basically ‘sick of Mankind,’ the Angle is clever, but ingeniously set to the Horrors We have created in our Pursuits, especially so, endured the last (Week alone) with the two prominent (2) Cases of:

A)  Brian Williams lying repeatedly to millions of his Followers for over a Decade;


B)  Isis/Isil, the Terrorist Group, states Hostage, Kayla Mueller* (Prescott, Arizona) may be dead when the Evidence may prove otherwise. This is a pristine Lie, slated as Propaganda working as Psychological Warfare. (Granted, Enemies are prone to lie, the Subject of Lying is layered in Degrees of Fallacies where no Barrier is off-limit.

One’s Fate (either Life or Dead) lies in what occurs when a LIE is let loose.  It’s that easy, yet complex and continues to intrigue us.  Enter: Parenthood when Lessons of Value need to be instilled in the youngest Generation, or else, their Future will result in the most bleak of existences.

THE LIE now comes to The Forefront of our News as I carefully explore this Topic in an edgy Title called:

#Santa_Is_Retiring ©2014.

‘Scrutiny’ is the New Buzz Word deemed as utmost important.  However, I’ll be honest with you as  getting rid of ‘The Lie’ is extremely difficult, if not impossible.  For Story Writers (as myself) and anyone who has ever picked-up a Pen/Pencil/Computer Screen, embellishing a(ny) Story means Lying. Exaggerating means Lying. Where the Fiction (is made up) the Lie rises and starts where the Non-Fiction begins; a fine Line causing Friction to prevail. 

But where do We draw that “fine Line” at The Lie?

With Santa retiring (in my Story/Script he retired on December 25, 2014), and a complete SHUT-DOWN of ‘all things Retail and Religious,’ this blunt Realization may hopefully move People enough to examine what they say and do.  It’s worth a try.  For a Writer (as I watch The News), it gets easier to spot ‘The Liar’ as they get sloppier in their Lies.   

SO WHERE IS BLOG #1183 HEADING OFF TO?  I’m not going to lie to you and tell you something that I’ve not yet seriously reflected upon.  I’m fascinated with what ‘The Lie’ compounds into for us Members of Modern Society and the Relationships We have built either (up)on Truth or not.


is a Literary Journey to see what is happening every Day to wear down our Resistance in more than One Way.  Currently, the Top Two Examples (one foreign and one on native grounds) are:

1)  Mr. Mohammed Al Momani, the Chief Spokesperson of the Jordanian Government openly states that Isil/Isis is a Liar.  This Declaration means an entire Body of People is willing to lie (and die) for a Cause, a Terrorist Group hell-bent on establishing a Caliphate in Syria and the Levant that includes Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel.

2)  Brian Williams* has lied (exaggerating many News Stories (in the USA as well as abroad) that he has covered over and over again

that my entire Scope of my Writings now deal with around ‘The Monstrosities’ of what Lying does to a Society – so much so that our main Hero – Folk Lore Personality – Religio-Icon – the endearing  Symbol  of Father Christmas – of Purity – Mr. Claus, Santa himself is retiring. 

INSERT:  Also, please note that as of Wednesday, December 31, 2014 at 11:59 PM, the Last BabyBoomer turned 50. This means an entirely new Demographic is on the Verge of Retiring (besides David Letterman, of course) so that #SANTA_IS_RETIRING is interesting in yet another Vein.  The ‘Advantages of Age’ is the Avenue in which Popular Culture is presently steering (towards) and will ‘rock’ until the LAST BABYBOOMER is deceased, Decades from now.  Give or take 5 Decades, according to my Math.

I find Lying is an extremely dangerous Activity/Negativity that only wreaks havoc to every Situation and is a perpetual Risk to our Way of Life that may never be dissolved. An Example that immediately comes to mind involves:

The Criminal World.
Prisoners lie.

They don’t want to be incarcerated.  A Lie (that is believed) would get them out of that alleged Crime.  Although that may be the most serious of Examples besides Warfare, We cannot get away from ‘The Lie.’ 

Sales (collectively) is another Industry.  A Sales Clerk will lie (on his/her mama’s grave) stone-faced to you by telling you how great you look in that dress/jacket in order to seal that Sale. And, you don’t.

These Examples only skim ‘The Surface of Lyology’ – The Study of The Lie – and how it must be eliminated.  The Lie, of course, has killed tens of billions of People (since Man rose through Time).  On an Assortment of Levels, We can no longer afford (the Proliferation of) The Lie taking such an extraordinarily great hold in Man’s Humanitarian Evolution; gripping and tearing us apart from what We are designed to do – whatever your Passion may be.  Selling that Passion/Brand/Product cannot be founded in a Lie or Falsehood.

If you can’t believe who you are speaking to (at which most People can certainly relate to with their Long Histories of ‘Talking It Up’), then what can the Outcome of that be and how is Culture affected?

When an Opinion (a Thought – a Point of View) matters and if that deals with a Matter of Life or Death, no Room exists for a Lie to obscure the Picture.  Time is of the Essence and should be respected and not eroded away.



The Lie lends itself to another Method in which We re-LY on yet another Viewpoint. Your TIQ: Thoughts/Insights/Quotes on this Subject will be applied to my Book/Script/Interviews. Those would comprise the Icing on my Literary Cake, being the Voice of Experience(s) as you are.  I’m immensely interested in your Input about this re-LIE-able Topic that spins on ‘The Spin,’ affecting only Mankind. We won’t even begin questioning as to:

who did and who did not evolve.

The Soundtrack of our Lives should not be based on The Lies We hear; The Lies We spread; or The Lies We withstand. But now with the Creation of #Santa_Is_Retiring, We can collectively know that Lies’ Infiltration makes the broad Difference between Complications vs. Simplicity. History will thank us for that.  Historically, that means there will be Future Generations because We caught the Lie before it was too. Late. 

Thank you for your Time and Expertise spent on my Special Research Project as it is very appreciated and that is honestly no Lie.
