Looking back to the time the United States decided to invade Iraq we seemed to come together as a nation. France, Germany, and Russia pleaded with us to not do it. We, as a result, stopped eating at French restaurants and started calling French fries American fries. Most of us will now agree that that invasion of Iraq was an expensive mistake.
If we are Red Sox fans we dislike anything Yankees, same with Dodgers and Giants. We either like Fords or we like Chevys. We don’t need facts to make these decisions.

I wanted to give a shout out to this Face the Nation interview with Daniel Pink.
Newspapers provide news and editorials. It is the editorials that slant the truth to the opinions of the owners. The same is true of television where there are news shows and there are opinion shows.
When we watch these shows we need to remember which ones we are watching. We can be very gullible and opinion shows take advantage of the gullible person.
