You cant handle the truth! Jack Nicholson shouted at Tom Cruise during the climactic court-martial scene in the movie A Few Good Men.

Good article. Thanks for posting.
I would like to point out that the character that stated that “truth” was the ANTagonist.
In a twisted way, it’s how holloweird and the media insulate themselves, NOT ONLY FROM THE TRUTH,

None other than the devil could be so twistedly “subtil”.
You ROCK Huskerette! I wish there were more like you here in western Colorado. Keep up the good work.
My view is that Catherine Englebrecht (and her vote fraud prevention activities) is a far more sympathetic figure with which to make the government over-reach/corruption arguments than is Cliven Bundy, especially for women.
