Some may say I need a psychiatrist, but I've always enjoyed politics and the topics involved. With that being said, wading into the sewage of political discourse these days is an exercise in madness. Gone are the days when such discourse could lead to anything remotely resembling a civilized exchange of ideas. We've ushered in a new era where most people who have such interest are more out to prove that they are right, and any person with any disagreement, or objection to any policy and idea they believe is either antisemitic, a sex maniac, stupid, bigoted, homophobic, or much worse. In such an environment where people are so dug in trying to prove they are right even when empirical evidence proves that they are wrong, it becomes an exercise in futility to attempt any conversion at all. It can be somewhat funny to see the bizarre reactions and silly name calling when the argument is lost, but that is only a temporary giggle and not a really a lasting enjoyment.
