The sad thing is reporting has turned into a race not a marathon of consistent facts. First to produce a headline is the winner not necessarily the one reporting the most accurate information. Just be first. Just have an opinion. Just publish. Even average Joe's are now out protesting before they even have the facts of an issue or situation. As long as you're protesting you're doing something but then the facts come out and they change their mind and walk away but the damage is done. There is no apology or "uh yeah we shouldn't have protested that until we uh yeah heard all the facts, uh my bad".

Off topic.. Just curious, have you, (or anybody else here), ever taken the class "7 habits of highly effective people"? One of the habits, (can't remember which atm), has a saying, "put some distance between your stimulus and your response". Those are wise words. In the world of today, where everything is tweeted or instagrammed in the moment, that is completely lost. Sad.

I blame the audience and the dreadful shortening of the collective attention span to roughly that of a gnat. That, and the eradication of critical thinking so deftly orchestrated by the Progressives who have take over the entire education system.

If nobody watched or read that garbage, they'd have to raise their standards. People are unwilling to put in the time it takes to gain a thoughtful understanding of things. They navigate their way through the day's happenings using their "feelings." They go for the sound bites. The information equivalent of a McDonald's Happy Meal.

it's designed to be impulsive and reactionary. kind of like a sneeze. some people are compelled to say "bless you" out of habit or because they feel compelled. a catchy headline is no different.

He was also acquitted by people who set out to acquit him from the beginning without any first hand witnesses or evidence presented. I hope that does not make anyone proud.

Of course why would you convict with no first hand witnesses? Lots of trials get thrown out before a trial starts cuz they are obvious crap.

But, but, there was irrefutable evidence. So, much in-fact, that the case was to stand on its own merits, taller than the Burj Khalifa.

Or was there? Apparently not, hence the bemoaning for additional witnesses. The Congressional Democrats are pathetic, hypocritical, self-serving liars. Trying to convict someone for abuse of power by...abusing power. Never seen such duplicity.

Not saying Trump wasn't guilty of something, maybe even the thing he's accused of, and I can imagine the case being made by an impartial (albeit liberal) constitutional scholar like Derschowitz, but even he doesn't buy it. But the Democrats? LMAO and half the forum believes the objectivity of the Democrats' case.

I fear living in a state where a difference in opinion results in death threats, but that's the Democrats' MO. Look at how they treat people like Derschowitz who make cases on based logic and reason. The entire agenda rests on vilifying those who disagree, simply by the virtue of the fact that they disagree. This is pure lunacy. The Party of "tolerance" is creating divisiveness, intolerance, hate on a scale so far beyond what Trump is doing.

So much I don't get with this sorry mess.

I don't get the House (Dems) rushing their proceedings.

I don't get McConnell working with the White House to determine how to proceed in the Senate.

I don't get how a bunch of lawyers exercising their gums constitutes a trial. A trial has witnesses.

I do get how one could conclude that the charges, if proven, still do not constitute impeachable offenses. But the proceedings, in both houses, were shameful.

They rushed because Trump was trying to cheat to win in 2020.

It felt like it took way longer than it should to get to the senate and get shot down. But maybe that is just me.

Like the tax returns, attempting to subpoena members of Trump's team would have (conveniently) been tied up in the courts for months or years. The case was strong but still didn't stand a chance in the senate as most involved are more beholden to their party than their country. Flame suit engaged.
