Response to nadinbrzezinski (Original post)

Wed Mar 16, 2016, 10:48 AM

5. Too many people are blinded by partisanship and the "My Way is the Only Way", in this country to

understand the real issues. Nothing exists outside their immediate world view. They cannot imagine anything from another's view point.
They pick one or a few items and twist and spin them into something palatable sounding for their propaganda sound bites.
There seems to be only a few anymore that can see the big picture and those people are denigrated as being out of touch, when it is the people doing the belittling that do not understand.
