Why is the telly news so infatuated with Trumpton.
Because he's got a serious personality disorder that makes him liable to launching a nuclear missile in a fit of childish pique. Plus the fact that he's a crook, a misogynist, alleged sex offender, racist and bigot with no respect for the office he is about to take or anyone that opposes him.
Really glad you are grateful for the things in your life but maybe you should internalise some of this or start a blog instead of posting it all over FB. Apparently we are on day 37 of these long, rambling essays now so clearly you weren't just doing it for a month.
Bottom line is - no one can know the entire truth about anything unless they were there in person, when it happened.
That's as basic as it gets.
Relying heavily on information which is at best, second hand, third hand, fourth hand, super corrupted Chinese Whispers hand, is risky.
Too much potential for errors.
It is perfectly possible to find accurate stats, facts and unbiased opinions if you look in the right places.
But, like I said before, only if you are bothered.
By the way I read an interview the other day with an American guy that used to run a fake news website. He said that conservatives swallowed all the crap he fed them while never got anywhere with liberals who would debunk the story by about the third post every time. I'm guessing this is because they were better informed.
ignorance: not a virtue.
But anyway, blather on. I am off to the place I go to talk people who actually give a shit.
