If the far right does not have a conspiracy then it is always very easy for them to create one. This is how many commentators (entertainers) get on the air, stay on the air, and achieve great wealth. The far rights’ favorite three words are “in other words”. They never miss a chance to reinterpret anything said by anyone else to help them create controversy, conspiracy or 3 hour shows. How else does a former divorced addict with less then one quarter of college make 20 million a year and become a national poster child and self appointed spokesperson for a religious right, ultra conservative minority of the population? How else does a ½ term governor of a sparsely populated state that is on the verge of personal bankruptcy resign and in 6 months create over 10 million dollars of income? It is way too easy nowadays to be against everything and be for nothing. It is way too easy these days to automatically forward empty headed and outdated emails. I am looking for intelligent conversation from people willing to discuss and not a shouting match devoid of fact or reason. This is a serious time and the discussion should be led by people willing to look at all sides of an issue and make an informed, non-pre approved and pre packaged decision. Bring those kinds of people to the table and good things can happen. Until then we are constantly polluting the airwaves with crap!
