I found a place between the left and the right, the liberal and the conservative, the Democrat and the Republican. It is not the middle. I tried the middle. Got tortureed bt both sides. I had to lean one way or the other. I said ‘lean.’
Ti keep sane one must be rational, so I lean to the right. Let me explain why.
I began my working life as a journalist. I didn’t know squat. I amend that. I was an inner city kid who knew when someone was lying. Raised in Chicago. a Democrat machine, you can’t help but hear the lies. If someone spoke the truth, made a rational statement . for example, “Why are there so many1 shootings in a heavily legislated gun city? Why is that replicated around the US?”
Let’s start at the obvious. Anybody, I mean anybody, who thinks, has ever thought, defends or likewise admires Hillary Clinton is a total fool. Any black, especially black woman, who would support her is in reality supporting a ‘plantation owner.’ It’s like a Jew voting for Hitler — and a lot did.
The emails she lied about now reveal who she works for. Her only recourse is to claim that her emails were the only way she could fulfill the Obama campaign promise of ‘transparency.’
There was a journalist like myself warning them before he was silenced. In my case, I walked away. I couldn’t fight city hall. A rational question painted a bull’s eye on you.
I have stated this before and will state it again. I just watched THE YOUNG TURKS. This is an internet commentary program. They say and demonstrate the best ideas in the dumbest way. This thinking is the reason we have problems.
The have this guy shilling his money making web site while he is bad mouthing money in politics. But this same guy puts up a graph of three TV media sites and shows how they don’t cover important events.
Then, the proven hypocrite proves why liberal thinking is based on irrational thinking. He takes a swipe, a sarcastic comment, at the right leaning FOX news and while the graphic is behind him ignores the two left leaning TV media sites who gave less coverage of an event than FOX news did.
My point is simple. Stop the hate speech. I agree with much of what you are saying but when I consistently see the dislike for another group’s attempt to express their thoughts, you lose me. We cannot even agree to disagree when I see your sarcasm and hypocrisy as the new journalism.
I laugh at jokes about all candidates but not for the same reasons. I would love to argue my point but it can’t be done because you insist on being right.
