Hard to recognize America today.
The coming 2016 election takes on a surreal tone, as real estate tycoon and reality TV star Donald Trump surges on the Republican side, while died-in-the-wool 1960s style socialist Bernie Sanders seems to be making inroads with the Dems.
And then there's political correctness. The PC police work overtime to censor any candidate who dares stray from narrow yet ambiguous party approved talking points.
But wait, there's more.
Politics is just one of the areas where the so-called fundamentally changed America is starting to show its dark side. Rising levels of brazen depravity have a growing grip on our urban centers but, again, to discuss such things is contrained by politcal correctness.
What's the best course of action from here?
Do we just keep playing the tired appearance of a two party system?
Can Trump or Sanders shake things up enough that a corrupt status quo begins to give-way?
Any chance Trump and Sanders are just more distractions to keep us from digging into other alernatives?
Time to start thinking outside the box. Especially the box that political elites have worked so hard to put you in.
Developments in the Freedom Act; differential media treatment of Waco vs Baltimore; the latest from the republican klown car. Commentary from digby, Andrew Jerrell Jones and Jay Ackroyd. Plus another ridiculous moment from politcal satirist Culture of Truth.

Wealth in Politics is turning it into Poli-Tricks. Money is buying our political leaders so easily that the new TPP is being forced down our throats and the wishes and desires of Israel is taking a front seat even against our own President. Congress manufactures millionaires based on simply belonging to a select committee and selling your services...
Do all of us ever see the same TRUTH in the same way? What is TRUTH to one, is a total lie to another.
Some people think Edward Snowden is a traitor; others call him a hero.
Some think Hillary would make the best President; others wouldn’t vote for her for Dog Catcher?
Who is right? How can you find out what is behind all of the huff and puff; bull and bluff.
Join us as we look beneath the facade to the real intentions of two questionable personalities.
