Nowadays, watching the news, and reading social media, I feel a bit like Tony Soprano myself.

A story breaks — a prominent person dies or there's a mass shooting, for instance — and the exact same reactions appear on news media discussion panels and social media as the last time such a story occurred. Then these reactions fade away as we grow weary of hearing about the event. Then a similar event occurs and we all become embroiled in the exact same conversation. We never learn. We never change. We just do it again and again and again....

So, for instance, Senator John McCain dies...

...Either pay tribute, say Rest in Peace, or keep your mouth shut. Nothing else is required.

...[but] By the sixth minute, however, the reactions on the news channels and social networks have turned predictably vicious. Some can't get out of their own heads long enough to silence their political snarling. Others use their tributes to McCain to make nasty comparisons to the living. Still others start attacking the way some paid their respects. It's like watching people pull the man's body apart and beat each other over the head with his limbs.

Likewise with a shooting like the one in Jacksonville, Florida. We get a few minutes of thoughts and prayers (a completely appropriate response to a tragic situation over which you have no control and in which you had no involvement). Then the screaming starts over the Second Amendment. The nation's media can't even give the families of the dead one lousy day to grieve in peace before they are at each other's throats.

Then the screaming fades. The news and social media move on. Until the next time, when it all starts again.

We're in Hell.

Why? What have we done to find ourselves condemned to this endless cycle of useless rage, like the guy in Dante doomed to gnaw on another man's head forever? What is our sin?

The real issue is this: do we want to preserve American liberty and the constitutional machinery that maintains that liberty — or not?

...We could easily confirm Supreme Court justices if we acknowledged that their role was not to make law but to ensure laws are in keeping with the Constitution. We could debate anything as long as we both agreed to our right to speak.

But the moment I know I am talking to a socialist — who believes my work, my time, and thus my life belong to the state — the moment I know I am talking to a leftist — who will not concede my right to self-defense... ...the moment I know I am talking to a cheat willing to have our founding document rewritten from the bench — the moment I know I'm with a censor who thinks it's fine to silence me whether on social media or in the news media or through the courts — I will not give one bloody inch. Because, in that case, each concession becomes another step to the eradication of the one political asset I hold most dear: my freedom.

That is where we find ourselves. To my mind, our news media, our academies, the corporate culture of Silicon Valley, and the Democrat Party have all lost the plot of American liberty. They believe in socialism. They believe in a disarmed populace. They believe in ruling through the judiciary. And they believe in censorship of ideas they don't like.

I will not surrender to them even a little.

Until we can agree on the One Great Thing — that Americans should be free — we can't agree on anything. And we are doomed to repeat the same conversations again and again.

We are in Hell.

Why? What have we done to find ourselves condemned to this endless cycle of useless rage, like the guy in Dante doomed to gnaw on another man's head forever? What is our sin?

That is where we find ourselves. To my mind, our news media, our academies, the corporate culture of Silicon Valley, and the Democrat Party have all lost the plot of American liberty.

THE REAL Enemies of Common Sense, Logic and Liberty are:

1) Public Schools and Academia (AND THEIR CORRUPT LEFTIST ADMINISTRATORS AND LEFTIST TEACHERS)

2) Colleges and Universities. (AND THEIR CORRUPT LEFTIST ADMINISTRATORS AND LEFTIST TEACHERS)

3) The Mainstream Media

They are all criminals and saboteurs of all "critical thinking", of truth, of morality, of common sense AND of especially knowledge.

For the last 20 years or so the majority of College grads and attendees return home to Mommy and Daddy mostly buried eyeball-deep in debt; Used and abused as brainwashed political tools and pawns by their wealthy Leftist professors and college institutions with few life skills.

But what they have definitely learned was...a TON of hatred, ignorance and resentment; How to be a Snowflake, a Victim. How to doubt or deny your own masculinity, femininity, sexuality, and self-respect. How to hate themselves, their identity, their family, their BEING. AND especially, CONSERVATIVES AND GOD. (Constantly reinforced by The Criminal Media (Social and Mainstream)

Unless the Agenda of these Bastions of Hate, Il-logic, Demoralization are burned to the ground (and agents destroyed), not only will nothing ever change, but the younger generations will be doomed to the Fascist-Communist vision of Stalin, Pol Pot, and Bernie, Kamala, 0bama, Hitlery, a hypocritical Hollywood and the smug homofascist talking heads on Tee-Bee. Needless to say, it will be lights-out for "Late Great USA".

McCain is an azzhole, and millions of sheeple Republicans were well aware of it, but voted for him anyway. They were eager to destroy America, as long as a Republican terrorist madman was doing it.

This is the McCain legacy. Never forget!

Thank God every day that McCain(R) and the Republicans lost.

ISIS Republicans, kill the infidels, pinche gringo whitey

Why do you think it's called television "programming"? The CIA Mockingbird news media exist in order to manufacture consent for various gooberment policies and keep the sheeple uninformed, in addition to creating false narratives and keeping the "us versus them" mentality going

They don't report the news that's important - they report the news that they want you to hear, over and over until you are a brainwashed slave.

All of the TV sets I've seen have a little doohickey that allows you to move from one channel to another.

They also have an "off" switch.

To be honest what really saddens me is the late night show "comedians". It's as if all of their jokes were written by the same guy who has an office in DNC headquarters.

They ain't funny - their Trump "jokes" ain't funny. I don't stay up late anymore so I wouldn't watch them anyways - but I've seen the clips from the shows.

This BS is what passes for comedy these days?

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” - Ron Paul

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Even Reagan didn't get as much air time when he died.

When's the last time a R got that kind of praise from folks like CNN, MSNBC and so forth?

I guess because McCain was into war, big time.

While the networks are split on how they feel about Trump (at least Fox News likes him), ALL the major networks are uniformly pro-war, pro-empire, anti-Russian and believe Assad and Putin are both the anti-christ.
