Straw Man Commercials

Have you ever noticed that TV commercials almost never mention the competition by name. Instead, companies like Scott Trade, or United Van Lines, make up a preposterously inept fictitious competitor to mock. It is a straw man. None of the competition are anything like that.

Separatism

A country is like a marriage. It can only hold together as long as the parties enjoy living together.

The United States seems to be splitting into two groups: those who seek truth, science and evidence and those who make up facts to suit their preferences. These include the Christians and the Trump supporters. I am hoping the Trump supporters will have a mass disillusionment, which will re-unify the country. If they don’t, the country will split, hopefully without another civil war.
