"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Ho Hum.  OPapaDoc caught in more lies.  Who cares?  The NFL drafted its first openly gay player and we all got to watch him kiss his boyfriend on the national media!  Isn't it great?  We call it progress.

Sometimes I hate being so negative, but I just can't ignore reality. My head spins at what we, collectively, find interesting and important.

There is great danger in becoming completely complacent because this administration lies so much we have become numb.

I am praying that at some point we reach a critical mass and Americans rise up and say, "NO MORE!"

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

We've got two main problems on this front that have been building for quite some time:

1.  There is too large of a percentage of the population that is so completely distracted by the 24x7 multi-media entertainment machine that they have no idea that any of this stuff is even going on.
2.  And out of the remaining percentage of the population, there is too large of a percentage that sources their "awareness" and information from entities that inform them over and over: "A bunch of Republican lies...  crazy conspiracy theories......  pure political nonsense from desperate Republicans.....  downright hatred for the President by racist Republicans....."


If you subtract out those two groups, there are just not many people remaining.   :shrug:

I know. I am painfully aware. That's why I'm one of the ones that tries to reign in the euphoria over possibly crushing the Democrats in November. What we see isn't what that majority sees. Obviously that's true, because if the majority saw what we see, we'd be complaining about President Romney.

And it is also true that there is not a smidgen of corruption at the IRS! More like a boat load!

You are correct.  I have to admit, for me, at this point in time ("because this administration lies so much"), I almost yawn when yet another revelation comes forth; there have just been so many, and absolutely nothing of substance has been done about it.

And I realize that this is actually a phenomenon that I've been experiencing for years.  For the better part of two decades I have watched myself go into this cycle: Learn/hear about some "shocking" truth that starts to bleed out a bit, get all exciting, thinking in my mind, "Great, this is going to be the thing that really wakes a lot of people up!!!" and then end up just getting discouraged as nothing ever comes of it.....  There is a limit as to how long a person can go through this cycle until more than a bit of jaded cynicism starts to creep in.   :shrug:

Yes, Relic.  I have basically gone into the default mode of not expecting anything, and waiting to, perhaps, be pleasantly surprised at some point!

Amongst his many lingering problems is that he inserted the word "even" into his denial!!  lol

There is MUCH Truth to that, Bigun; I fear there is TOO MUCH Truth there (i.e., that your sentiment is merely descriptive at this point, not prescriptive).

Well Katz I can only respond to that by telling you that there is CURRENTLY a bill before both houses of Congress (HR25/S122) with MANY co-sponsors that would instantly fix the problem the day it is enacted into law! All that is lacking is suficient demand from us that it be done!

For me it's not so much of a 'yawn' as it is the pessimism that there's not one blasted thing we can do about it.

The left controls the message, and as long as we are portrayed as some kind of violent, dangerous nutcases who are trashed at every turn, in the media, in popular culture, in Hollywood, on college campuses, in public schools, I get dangerously negative and pretty much want to give up on the country that I adored, in spite of its shortcomings, just a few short years ago.

Obama has sucked the life out of me.

That's why I dismiss almost anything that comes from the conservative echo chamber. Not because it isn't true, but because only the few will know of it. I don't watch Fox News for that reason. If it's not covered by the msm, it didn't happen.

All too true.  That is why it is vitally important for us to keep our "eyes on the prize," and never let this stuff steal that out of our hearts, even momentarily.

LOL  You're not missing too much by avoiding FNC.  While they do cover stuff that isn't covered elsewhere, I see an "establishment" voice getting louder there over the years.  Their coverage of the things not covered elsewhere, is often sorely lacking.
