I know it sounds simple. But, I believe what is happening to our country,or has happened, is that we have abandoned truth.

It has become the norm to sensationalize one's own viewpoint and totally demonize the opposing view.

Seldom is one view 100% correct and the other 100% wrong.

You're right, it sounds very simple ... but it is also very true. We see this demonstrated daily with the press. I can remember a time (and am sure that you can too) when the political leaning of the press was no where near as obvious as it is today. Now we have "journalists" that report the news from a viewpoint that supports their particular political perspective and/or agenda.

AND, if the is no reportable news to support the agenda they simply create some.

Capt (Join to see) Never tell the whole story. Then you won't have a story for tomorrow! But half a story is a lie by omission...

IMHO, we as a country have too many freedoms for our own good. We're reaching the tipping point where the "entitled" and "extremists" are pushing the envelope on every possible issue so that containment is becoming almost impossible. The police that maintain the peace are being scrutinized to the point that they may not be able to do their jobs effectively out of fear of legal reprisal.

Burning question, how do working people have time to continue demonstrating?
