Seafood -- What's to "agree" with ? ?

I merely asked for Robert (or anyone else) to illustrate their claim of "lopsidedness".

Nothing has been forthcoming, so from that I conclude that it is AGAIN all nothing but an example of the usual nasty GoPer-Lie in action ! ! ! : Mere Poli-Ganda ! ! !

Seafood, you REALLY need to find a saner group to hang-out with, to fantasize with ! ! ! . Really ! ! ! . This could be the wages of a progressive dementia, you know ! ! !

It is better to be a mad chihuahua than a lying negative-intentioned GoPer-Snake in the grass ! ! !

Dumbing oneself down in order to appeal to the crowd is NOT a worthwhile goal.

Robert W speaks of the mass media reporting a "lopsided version of reality".

Please note that he has NOT responded to my challenge for him to cite an example of NON-lopsided reality from any source at all.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ! !

Why Seafood -- Picking up some litter is precisely what I AM doing -- Picking up and exposing to the rays of the bright Florida sun the Political Litter, Trash and Sheer B/S that you Trump-Acolytes insist on wildly tossing about, helter-skelter, regardless of the many “DO NOT LIE” signs posted everywhere ! ! !

Now surely your Momma taught you to do better than THAT ! ! !

(Continued from below)

Yes, indeed, I agree that there is involved here a good deal of sheer madness, among other issues, and that there are some unhinged people lurking about here alright, but I suggest that that group includes Man #3, among others, as opposed to Man #2.

Man #1 steps up in a Public Forum and delivers his complaint about the “lopsided version of reality” typically presented by the mass media. . He gives no particular or concrete example thereof. . I suppose that he relies here on the “everybody knows” phenomenon.

Man #2 steps up in the same forum and requests that Man #1 should please give a particular example of a report containing such a “lopsided version of reality” and further to give an example of a non-lopsided report on the same issue, indicating the source of this non-lopsided report.

Man #2 predicts uproarious laughter.

Next, Man #3 steps up, again in the same forum, and, accusing Man #2 of “sheer madness”, bluntly claims that these requests from Man #2 constitute good evidence that Man #2 has become unhinged.

(Continued above).

Robert, You say “. . . they choose to systematically bombard us with their lopsided version of reality which is seriously jaded and basically false and misleading (Closely paraphrased).

Please offer us an example, including source.

Now, please, offer us what you consider to be the corresponding NON-lopsided version of reality which is . . . . etc, including source.

There will next be a short intermission observed, while we all recover from the bodily stress induced by uproarious laughter.

These disagreers are the same jokers who accuse others of hiding behind a blind internet.

At a bare minimum one should have the commitment to honest debate to refute that which they do not support by justifying it with facts. I guess I understand why they don't. They are false claimants of hypocrites.

They come from that demographic sometimes referred to as the "cheap seats" or "peanut gallery". More often than not their opinions are not supportable by a preponderance of evidence based findings but are supported by willing dupes.

The truth of this assertion can be judged by the level of opposition being applied against efforts to overthrow the “Citizens United” decision – a misnomer by any measure of reason.

There are many components to the long-standing Washington Mess. . Term-Limits help keep politicians from “burrowing in”, but this help is simply NOT enough.

One component overarches all the rest : MONEY -- The effects of the flagrant MISUSE of money by Special Interests in politics. . It constitutes the means by which the Nation is gradually being separated from its people for the sole advantage of Special Interests, especially Corporate Special Interests.

There is a simple, effective solution to this “time-honored” abuse : When a dollar is spent by a Special Interest for a political purpose, a similar dollar must be given to each of the generally recognized entities acting in opposition to that purpose.

While this measure cannot completely eliminate the effects of human ingenuity used to devise schemes of corruption, it will go a long way towards containing those effects to a tolerable level.
