3. I agree. I understand it's a bit of a "trigger" for people who hate Democrats...

... and the Democratic party. But, oh well. Ya can't please everyone.

Fact based rather than biased sensationalism.
I completely agree. We definitely need more of that these days. It's the extremists at the far ends of the political spectrum who are typically the ones that cause the biggest problems. For example: just look at Trump's wackos.

In any case, that's pretty much the nature of politics, isn't it. Progress is made by finding common ground... looking for areas of compromise and common interest... and understanding that nobody gets EVERYTHING that they want. Give and take.

In the end, some progress is better than no progress. And slow progress is still progress... and much better than maintaining the status quo (ie: getting NOTHING done) all in the name of vanity and pride and stubbornness.

All I'm trying to say is that if my choice is a half-loaf or NO loaf... I'll take the half-loaf, please. Even if I get the half-loaf a single slice at a time, it's still SOMETHING. That's reasonable, right?
