False midterm election narrative, Gun control, & GOP fears realized

The last few weeks were difficult. It showed the impotency not only of our politics but those who run and report our politics. That impotence has begun to deteriorate our society.

We have a traditional media unable to report all but a narrative they create. When circumstances change they attempt to fit a square peg in a round hole. We will discuss that topic relative to the midterm elections.

We have a media that give politicians the airwaves to articulate false talking points. These talking points ultimately can kill. The killings at UCSB could have been mitigated if after all the tragedies in our country, meaningful gun control went into effect. It works elsewhere yet the news media fail to refute Republican false narratives. This will be our second topic.

Lastly, Red States decided to cede the building of exchanges to the federal government. In their shortsightedness they fail to notice they were making the possibility of a single payer healthcare system that more probable.
