OK, so the country is once again split. Will there be more fear-mongering from conservative media and self-fullfilling prophesy of obstructionism from politicians on the right? Can the left stop gloating before the year is up? Because that’s a perfect and well-tuned recipe for grinding work to a halt, and there are serious challenges ahead, requiring cooperation and compromise. The only way to get ahead is together.
If all the political ads on your favorite news channel/website lean only left or right, that’s a good indicator that the news you’re getting isn’t so fair and balanced after all.
Political conventions: Where the leaders preach to the converted, and the opposition has written them off before a word is uttered.
Thought: Be a patriot through doing, instead of dropping the word “patriot” every other sentence and hiding behind the flag.
