First, before we start. I referenced an article in today's show and I don't want to forget to give you the link. Here it is:
Now, are we headed for a civil war or not? I don't know. It seems a bit far-fetched to me at this point but it seems like we are more polarized now that we've ever been. Even that statement is a bit cliche at this point. I remember saying the same thing four years ago when this show launched.
But there is no doubt that the rhetoric is ramping up. I've got a montage of voices today claiming that anyone who supports Donald Trumps "zero tolerance" policy at the border is a racist. And that's not the worst thing they're saying.
It's time for a bit of a reality check. We need to see the pendulum swing back toward logical, rational discourse rather than a crazed emotional rampage of ideas.
Lots of great stuff on the show today. Don't forget to share!
