48. indeed it is- no one is saying not to speak up-
we all should do that, especially to our elected officials in concrete ways. Letters/e-mail/phone calls.
what the OP is addressing isn't peoples opinions, or fears, it's that there are many posts which are passing off individual opinions and assumptions as if their bleak outlook was evidence of the "done-deal".

The automatic rush to judgment based on fears NOT facts is not something I appreciate or support.

Juniperlea asked for facts to back up the highly vocalized fears and got nothing tangible in response.

We all have opinions, there is nothing bad or wrong about that- attempting to pass off our opinions and personal speculations as factual is just plain wrong.
