Nothing but the Truth - Day 1

Directions for the Day:

  • For each of the statements below, I want you to tell me how much you agree or disagree. Rate your response on a scale of 1 to 10. A "1" is fully disagree. A "10" is fully agree. A number in between indicates that you fall somewhere between the two.
  • After telling me your number, indicate why you feel that way.
  • Only comment one time.
Statement #1:
  • It is acceptable to lie in order to protect a friend.

Statement #2:

  • It is not a lie to tell only part of the truth.

Statement #3:

  • It is okay to be unfair to one person if it benefits everyone else.

Statement #4:

  • News reporters always want to print the truth.

Statement #5:

  • A teacher should uphold school rules no matter what the circumstances are.

5 I know that i would probably lie to protect a friend or someone i love. I dont think thats it right though.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:50 PM, Blogger aerial said...

statement #1.- yes, noone will know if your a good liar anyway. i give it a 1

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:51 PM, Blogger Christie said...

Because, it good to protect your friends when they are in need but if they like killed someone you have to tell someone.

Cintia: What do you mean it is okay to lie sometimes? Give me an example of when it is and when it is not okay to lie.

O WOW I THINK IT IS B/C YOU DON'T WANT YOUR FRIEND TO GWT INTO TROUBLE

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:53 PM, Blogger leila said...

i think it is ok to lie for a friend because if they were really close then you would lie for them. if marissa did something then i would probably lie to a judge or a court.

5 b/c Some times you need to lie for a good reason, but it is for a bad reason b/c if it is bad you should tell someone so you can help them.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:54 PM, Blogger Cintia said...

mr.phillips i think that it's okay when your lying to protect someone or trying to hide somthing for a good reason.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:55 PM, Blogger Marissa said...

hey ariel!!! whatcha up to!

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:56 PM, Blogger Mr. Phillips said...

Aeriel: Just because you can get away with it, does that make it okay? What if everyone was a good liar? What would the world be like if we had to suspect that everyone was simply "acting" sincere?

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:56 PM, Blogger leila said...

aerial you dork why dont you accept the fact that me and orlando are together. i know you have a whooooole bunch of room in your brain because their is nothing in their. orlando and me are together as a couple. you stalker stalking my husband.

2 b/c if you only tell what is convenient for you,and not tell what will hurt you is lieing.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:56 PM, Blogger Cintia said...

leila i think that you and orlando make a better couple than aerial

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:57 PM, Blogger aerial said...

marissa- what if your brother was in jail, would u lie to get him out?
christie-hi
lelia-you need help
jazzy- i hate u, u stink (jk)

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:57 PM, Blogger Catrina said...

I give it a five because i don't totally think you should lie for a friend. It really depends what the lie is about, and how bad it is if it is bad.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:57 PM, Blogger Lisa said...

for statement 2 i would give it a 1 beacause when you swear in court you swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you god so i think that the truth is the whole truth not just part

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:58 PM, Blogger Catrina said...

so are you gonna give him the note?

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:58 PM, Blogger aerial said...

u loser, i hate u traider- cintia

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:59 PM, Blogger Mr. Phillips said...

Christie: So are you saying that you would lie if the person wouldn't get into legal trouble, but you would lie if the person was in lesser trouble--at school, perhaps.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 12:59 PM, Blogger Marissa said...

ariel:well...yeah i would lie if it was my brother...but probably not for anyone i didn't no~!

ok guys i know orlando my husband is hot. but we need to stop talking about him. he might get jinxed. and i think we maybe should stop just accept the fact that me and you know who are a couple so BUD OUT!

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:01 PM, Blogger Christie said...

Yes Mr. P i would never lie i court.. but if it gossip i would lie to protect her/him

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:02 PM, Blogger Mirna said...

Statement 3:
6 b/c you want to fair to more people, than hurt evreyone else just b/c of one person.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:02 PM, Blogger Marissa said...

4:yes...in one way it is a lie...but in another way, you did tell the truth-just not the whole truth

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:02 PM, Blogger aerial said...

statement 2-its not a lie, people should be more specific

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:02 PM, Blogger Christie said...

For satement #2 i would say a 2 because it not the whole truth, and you might just say the good parts of lie and not the bad thing you did..

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:02 PM, Blogger Cintia said...

no idon't think that it's exactly a lie because at lest you told part of th truth.i give it a 5 again statement 2

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:02 PM, Blogger leila said...

I THINK it is not a lie to tell part of the truth i give statement #2 and 6

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:03 PM, Blogger Brandy said...

#2 STATEMENT
NO IT IS NOT A LIE TO TELL PART OF THE TRUTH BECAUSE YOU ARE JUST NOT TELLING THE WHOLE STORY

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:03 PM, Blogger Catrina said...

I think it is a little because if you know what they mean then you should tell them the truth. Like if you mother asked if you had money in your wallet, then you should say yes but it is in my pocket. 2

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:03 PM, Blogger Mr. Phillips said...

Now I know that most of you will say that telling only part of the truth is not a lie. Does that mean that everyone --myself, your parents--have to ask questions like lawyers to make sure that we know you are telling the truth?

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:05 PM, Blogger aerial said...

guys i have a confession to make

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:05 PM, Blogger leila said...

hey what are you talking about a bout tennis?

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:05 PM, Blogger Brandy said...

I DON'T KNOW PROBABLY AND IF I DO ITS GOING TO BE TOMORROW WHY HEY TRINA UR A LOSER

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:05 PM, Blogger Jazzy said...

statement 2:10
i wouldnt consider it a lie b/c she said that if he had money in his wallet, he said no and if she wanted to know if he had money period then she should of asked if he has money at all. then if he said no then that would be considered a lie.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:07 PM, Blogger leila said...

hey mr.phillips would you ever lie for any one who was your friend or your spouse or your daughter?

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:08 PM, Blogger Catrina said...

You see Mr. Phillips, I, Catrina Sobers, am not like other kids. because if i was i would get slapped upside my head. so if my dad asked me if i had money in my wallet, i would say yes even if i had it in my front pocket.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:08 PM, Blogger aerial said...

no i'm just saying that parents know better than to ask a round about question like that- they expect specific answers, we diserve secific questions

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:08 PM, Blogger Mr. Phillips said...

What about the standard of INTENT? If you know what the person is basically asking, isn't it dishonest to intentionally avoid their question? Isn't it kind of like Steve avoiding tough cross-examination questions by saying,"We talked about basketball."

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:09 PM, Blogger aerial said...

guys i use to have a cruch on barbra

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:10 PM, Blogger Christie said...

For Satement #3 i would give it a 1!!! You should treat everyone fair like it your own brother or sister or even your friend... EVERY ONE SHOULD BE EQUAL THE SAME WETHER IT I SCHOOL OR IN THE COURT ROOM...

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:12 PM, Blogger Mr. Phillips said...

Aeriel: How specific does the question need to be? "Do you have money in your front left pocket?" "Do you have money in your back right pocket?"

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:13 PM, Blogger leila said...

i dont think that it is ok because people do it all the time in school by making fun of someone or being a bully and making the class laugh.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:14 PM, Blogger aerial said...

yes yes yes yes yes #3 i give it a 1 because thats going on at our schoolright now

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:14 PM, Blogger Lisa said...

#3 no its not because how would you feel if that persons whose feelings werent being thought about was you and everyone else was benefited i give it a 2.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:14 PM, Blogger Lisa said...

#3 no its not because how would you feel if that persons whose feelings werent being thought about was you and everyone else was benefited i give it a 2.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:14 PM, Blogger Cintia said...

no because you have to be nice to the people that you like but that dosen't mean that you have to be evil like aerial she sometimes can be nice but sometimes she is not very nice

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:15 PM, Blogger leila said...

i give that statement a 3

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:15 PM, Blogger Jazzy said...

statement 3:10 not because its not fair. i think every one else should get there share of the problem.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:16 PM, Blogger Marissa said...

10: no...it's not fair at all! i think that if something is going to be fair...it should be fair to everyone!

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:16 PM, Blogger Catrina said...

no because it is not fair. i dont think so because it is not her fault if we pay attention or not. 3

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:17 PM, Blogger Brandy said...

NO IT IS NOT B/C IT IS NOT that one person its the while group THAT MESSES UP
STATEMENT 3

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:18 PM, Blogger aerial said...

#4- no because is it would help their paper make the front page than they would lie

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:18 PM, Blogger Lisa said...

for statement #4 i think that they try to tell the truth but i think they would jazz it up or make it look interesting to make more money or a bigger headline. i give it a 3.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:18 PM, Blogger Brandy said...

THEY HAVE OTHER THINGS IN MIND

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:19 PM, Blogger Cintia said...

not always they sometimes just want to make money or get a better article than other people i give it a big fat 0

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:19 PM, Blogger Catrina said...

0 because that is so not true they want to carry on things. some of them are true and some of them aren't.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:19 PM, Blogger Mr. Phillips said...

Now it sounds like most of you are pretty cynical about the press. Do you really think that everyone in the press is simply out to create a name for themselves? Does that mean that I shouldn't trust anything that I see on World News Tonight.

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:19 PM, Blogger Christie said...

For satement #4, They should tell the truth cause it could help their jobs and people who are watching it but i think they have other things in mind (cause they just need rating, they dont care about the facts) so i give it a 2

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:20 PM, Blogger Jazzy said...

statement 4: i think that reporters put in 1% of the truth in there reports, most of the time they tell lies so that they get my publicity

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:20 PM, Blogger Marissa said...

no...reporters these days really only care about money...not about the people,and what they care about

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:20 PM, Blogger leila said...

they do want to get the truth but if they can not have it then they write down some thing that they can get rich off of. like the movie "Run away bride". i give it a 5

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:22 PM, Blogger aerial said...

guys i think that the news and the papers are just used as a big writting contest

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:23 PM, Blogger aerial said...

amen, amen

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:23 PM, Blogger Cintia said...

AMEN

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:23 PM, Blogger Catrina said...

aerial shut your mouth you freak, are you trying to get me in trouble

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:23 PM, Blogger Lisa said...

i think that you should believe what you hear in the news sometimes but i think that when you decide you want to be a reporter your looking to get attention

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:23 PM, Blogger Mr. Phillips said...

A writing contest? What about the reporters who are on the front lines of the war? Does that mean that we should only believe what we see on video?

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:23 PM, Blogger Brandy said...

HEY TRINA U KNOW WUT U DO IT DO IT

 
At December 1, 2004 at 1:24 PM, Blogger leila said...

MR PHILLIPS you never know if it is the truth what is going on in iraq or if it is just false information off of the top of the writers head. how do you know?
