Speculation On Reality and What We See

Good Day World!

Pundits from both sides of the political spectrum have settled into speculation as a talking point in the media.

The result is an unsatisfying menu of nothing burgers being served up by TV hosts from CNN to Fox News.

For those brave enough to surf the web, ultra-partisans (use to be referred to as crazies) speculate on stories from Pedophiles in Pizza parlors, to what Trump will say when he and North Korea's dictator meet this week in Hanoi for Gripe and Grin II in a Communist country.

Liberal hosts and special guests come just short of drooling as they speculate about impeaching Trump, what the Mueller report will reveal, and how far Trump can trample the Constitution with his latest trick toward seizing the power of the purse from Congress?

Conservative hosts go out of their way to avoid facts and rely heavily on speculating ways to stretch laws to favor Trump and his minions.

Their bubble includes ultra-partisan interpretations of reality.

While the majority of the country loathes Trump, as evidenced by the polls, Conservatives huddle together and speculate on investigating the investigators into Trump's corruption.

Americans can be excused for being a little confused
by the amount of speculation coming out in all forms of social media, and the so-called mainstream news outlets.

In the Trump era of fake news, where reality gives way to alternate realities, speculation is a weapon that motivates us all in one way or the other.

Whether we like it or not.

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