It’s not the idea that we’re living in a post-factual period but more that we have been repeatedly lied to by our elected officials and the media, that the trust has been eroded. Continue reading...
We can all agree that this election cycle was nasty and just devoid of honesty, so maybe that explains some of the behaviors we are witnessing. I have heard how one candidate was such a compulsive liar while the other one was a saint. One used some server in a basement with classified information on … Continue reading No Shortage of Hypocrisy
Tuesday, we will know who the next president will be (fingers crossed). As Americans, neighbors, friends, family and strangers it is our collective responsibility to not gloat (we've seen that before).
