What is hurting this country

The idea that all opinions are equally valid and that we have to respect all opinions.

I'm going to disagree--just a bit. All opinions are supposed to be equally valid but in Trump's world opinions are now considered fact. Opinions are presented as fact which is why Miriam-Webster says they have seen a spike in a search for the word "fact". Now THAT, my friend, is a stunner.

We certainly do NOT have to respect all opinions. I am surrounded by really intelligent people (because I don't suffer fools lightly). Members of my family are intelligent, educated people. They voted for Trump. Most of these friends are devout Christians and they voted for Trump. Most of these friends abhor liars but they voted for Trump. Most of these friends support public education, environmental protection, Dreamers, climate change, etc....but they voted for Trump.

Every day I try to wrap my head around this FACT. I just can't seem to do it.
Thanks from imaginethat, iolo and Lyzza

Trump's politics plus its racism

A politica de Trump mais o seu racismo


he said he hates the poor, poverty exists in all colors.

Ele disse que odeia os pobres,a pobreza existe em todas as cores .

All ideas are not equally valid but we should respect people even if their opinion is not a good idea.

Not necessarily. Don the Con says such vile things that we have a duty not to respect his disrespect.

I've said it before, I'll say it again...Opinions are like a wart on the belly button. They're annoying as hell, but completely harmless. Especially here on DtT.

But I digress just a little, because the media is trying to pass opinions off as fact, always interpreting what is said by whoever, for whatever reason. As a result you have masses of people believing opinion swerved toward one ideal or another. And if we agree with that opinion, we are more apt to believe it as fact. Thus the discourse we have in this and other countries today.

And my wart for the day is this...So long as the media gets away with what they do, we will be met with manipulation to the ninth degree. And they are making it harder to investigate those truths. The media is more harmful than any president ever could be, and that is barely opinion, but very close to fact.
Thanks from Sabcat

So, it's only Trump's opinions that are subject to disrespect? All of your friends and family are wrong, and you are right? Maybe you should wrap your head around that FACT.
