I love both of you guys. It's all good.
You're a good sport, in2. I talk a lot of trash but it's good to have interesting discussions here about these topics with everybody.
I feel blessed.

You know what? My sons actually set me straight on this and I agree with them. If you just listen to the media, there seems to be only 2 factions and we're on complete opposite sides from each other with no middle ground. But if the entire country were to get together and intermingle and have person to person conversations, we're much more alike than we are different. In fact, it's too bad we can't do more of that.

I recently saw a 60 minutes piece where two groups, one democrats and the other republicans, somewhere in middle America got together and had conversations with each other. They found that they had much more common ground than they expected.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

Meanwhile, people are continuing to die in mass shootings and we as a nation continue to sit on our collective asses talking about how special we are while the Chinese are on the warpath, militarily, diplomatically, and technologically. We are getting our collective asses kicked and we don't even know it because we are so busy arguing with each other.

Biden's plan isn't big enough. We need nothing short of a national mobilization built around a new sense of unity. But I can't see us getting there.

We are going to have to get our noses blooded before we start getting a grip on reality.

Lets just hope the bloody nose is only that and not a severed head.
