Perhaps if our media and government didn’t lie to us all the time, people would be less likely to believe that they are being lied to.
Oh well, that is a fantasy about some other place that is clearly not this place.
That is the key issue here. We know that both government and media (but I repeat myself) have lied to us deliberately on a regular basis.
How can ANY of us believe anything we are told?
Those who espouse “politics as usual” need to realize that they have made us a society that CANNOT unite, because everybody gets to choose their own facts. God knows nobody within the justice system cares about facts.
THAT is why the “crazy conspiracy theories” need to be ADDRESSED - not eye-rolled away. As long as major, major issues such as Fast & Furious, IRS-gate, Benghazi, Obama’s ineligibility and the faked death of Loretta Fuddy, Extortion 17, “The Hammer”, Hillary’s email server, etc are all just eye-rolled away, there is no reason for any person to believe anything we are told by the media, law enforcement, and politicians. None.
And THAT is a very, very serious problem. In fact, I can think of no more serious secular problem that we could have as a nation, when nobody is believable and nobody can be trusted.
When will our justice system get serious about this, because we are fast disintegrating as a people and as a nation because of this. It is tearing every person apart from every other person, because everybody has a different set of “facts” based on whose reporting they trust.
