51. There used to be an opposition party and opposition media in this country
Now there is neither. Which came first? The sell out of the Democrats or the sell out of the Media? I say the democrats led the way. Once the Media realized they were alone in voicing opposition they gave it up. Granted there are a few real Media sources left just like a few real Democrats left but not enoughh to make any noise. Just like a tree falling in the woods and no one around to hear it. It makes no noise. The deserts are taking over the world and all the trees are falling noiselessly.
