One glance at your mainstream news media will convince you, as Johnny says, your world has gone to hell. And each morning you can see more “evidence” of that.Read more

We’re living in a contentious era of disrespect and disregard for others’ opinions, especially if they do not agree with ours. Do you have a hard time talking with someone who does not agree with you?
