Has the political section turned into a shit show?

So, has it? I will say it has become much more disjointed and the reality is, is that if we all get together, I bet we would all have fun.

Speaking of political, what happened to Gus Grott? He has been very silent.

I need it. It’s like my daily cup of coffee but instead of coffee it’s made of anger and outrage.

GrussGott is not banned, but he hasn't been on here since June 14th. Hope he is alright.

I propose to add one more point of poll: 4. To supplement "Politics/Religion" section with an additional "Talks about Putin" section.

Then in the main "Politics/Religion" section everything will become decently and calmly )))

Politics has become very divisive, gone are the days of political debate. I think that the use of internet, social media and hiding behind keyboards has made it a much nastier game. Add the need for media to try to stay ahead of social media etc it's become more about making news than reporting it. So many media outlets are trying to tell folks what to think rather than reporting facts and letting folks decide for themselves.

You sir, win the internet today. Congratulations!

The lack of social skills combined with keyboard warriors in social media is the perfect mix with the disinformation and propaganda spewed by the media. The result is a continuing polarization of opinion and increase the discord in society.

Great post!
