Godspeed Sen. McCain on your fight against cancer.

I hate that filthy fucking disease with every fiber of my being. I have lost too many family members and friends to it over the years.

If we would spend just half as much on medical research to cure cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and other killer diseases instead of billions and trillions on the military and military adventures we would be more in line with the civilized countries of this earth.

I served for 8 years in the USAF during the Vietnam conflict, so I just cannot suffer these fools who are so gung-ho to start yet another war in some godforsaken place just so the criminal captains of industry can make even more dirty money.

For the last couple of weeks I have been tuning into FOX for ten or fifteen minutes each day (gag) to try to fathom how so many of my friends and family are so misinformed, (or just so downright stupid) as to believe that drumph is God’s chosen one to save America from the ungodly evil liberals.

And so it seems that whenever you see a story of another trump misdeed, lie, criminal activity, or ignorant and stupid tweet, on CNN or MSNBC, or any other mainstream media source. You can immediately tune into FOX and hear nothing of it at all, or a made up story of the shocking and horrible effort of the latest Democrat/liberal dirty tricks, and vicious lies to discredit our greatest president of all time who is fighting around the clock to undo the smoking wreckage and horrors of the Obama administration.

Whenever “Fox Noise” wants you to forget that some despicable criminal republican politician who is under investigation and whom actually “IS” a Republican, they, ah, accidentally label him or her as a Democrat on their sub-title line, and let it go at that.

Add that to the 24/7 hate radio e.g. Limbaugh, mark Lavin, and other well paid right-wing talk show hosts that in many instances are the only radio talk shows that ever play in rural America. Now you have the perfect storm of wingnut indoctrination that has been festering and infecting rural America for the last 30 years.

So I would say that most of these (ignorant) people in our midst are not inherently evil or stupid, they are simply misinformed and gullible people who don’t know the political reality of our times, and don’t wish to hear any facts or logic that may contradict their "set in stone" beliefs.

What to do about this? I just don’t know.
