And just like that, boys and girls, all the hate, all the hurt, all the criminals, all the animosity, and all the problems just, POOF, disappeared.
Ahhh, I love a good fairy tale. They’re so good at distracting us from actually solving problems.
And that’s my issue – no one that I’ve heard, on either side of an issue, presents real solutions. Instead, they yell. They scream about how wrong those who disagree with them are. They rant about how ignorant/apathetic/unfeeling/idiotic/dispassionate/uneducated/etc their opposition is. And maybe, if they get desperate to appear that something is being done, they repackage things that have never worked before.
But maybe they will now! Because…fairy tales.
And, like Forrest Gump, that’s all I’ve got to say about that.
