What Can We Believe In?

Good Day World!

Belief is a fragile thing. FYI: I'm not talking about religion here today. 

What I'm referring to, is believing what you see and hear in society. 

When you've been told all of your life that adults should take an aspirin everyday because doctor's say to, it comes as quit a surprise when your told otherwise.

There's a new study that raises questions about "aspirin therapy." Basically, this new study says that people who have been taking aspirin daily are more like to die than other seniors.

Frankly, I'm not sure what to believe. Full disclosure; I've never taken aspirin daily. More out of laziness than what I believed.

It's like the latest red hot controversy in the Kavanaugh confirmation process. A woman has come out and said that he assaulted her when she was just 15-years old. He was 17 at the time, and both were in high school.

Why now, after 36 years, has Christine Blasey Ford, come forward with her accusation a week before the committee was set to vote?

Here's an article from the NY Times that will give you more background in this evolving controversary. 

I want to believe Ford. But I also want to know what the truth is. Is she lying? Is he lying? I don't know what to believe. 

In this era of Trump, truth has taken a beating. Facts are converted into fake news on partisan lines. Where can we go for assurance of reading the facts? What news platforms are bipartisan? What news anchor always tells us the truth?

If you're confused about what to believe don't feel alone. Millions of Americans are. How could it be otherwise, with a sociopath and narcissist for a president?

Time for me to walk on down the road...
