I don't know about you but I've heard about all the ridiculous (spoken as truth) I can stand. This morning when reading the blog Murmurs I laughed, and then I had a serious thought.
She said "Strange times. We have it on good, or at least loud, authority that Hillary Clinton is planning to have some of our troops massacred just for the thrill of being able to lie about it to the American people. That Bernie Sanders keeps a sperm sample from Karl Marx in a locket on his person at all times to keep it warm and viable. That Barack Obama is going to make us all pray to Allah five times a day just so he can look at men's butts. People will say anything about anybody. They really don't care much about the truth anymore."
My serious thought was, there actually are people so mind warped these days they would jump to believe these things. Have we ever lived in a time when so little regard was given to truth?
Yesterday Olga at Confessions of a Grandma commented "The news lately hurts my soul." That's exactly how I feel these days. Perhaps that's why I'm having such a hard time making myself engage with the news of the day.
Have you noticed how often people share items on Facebook you're pretty sure, if you could have a conversation with them, you would find they didn't actually read it, or certainly gave very little thought to what they were sharing? I am appalled by some of the things people I'm very fond of share. Makes me wonder if I really know that person.
How are we going to get this run away train called America back on track?
