Y’all…. Indulge me for a moment. I need an opinion. I want your honest opinion… but I don’t want to treat you like a toddler by laying out a bunch of irrelevant malarkey intended to sway your opinion.

Yet the naysaying-nit-picking-career-politicians want to hold it up as politicly driven and selfishly motivated... TWO YEARS and THREE MONTHS after the fact.

I’ll dispense with the all too familiar disclaimers as to the legitimacy of this hybrid...

I’ve avoided typing the words “Fake News” simply because I know the irrational, emotionally charged reaction that it will stir up amongst the GOP/DEM worshipers.
