    I just said ultraliberals because I didn't want to bring down a conservative hellstorm.

    Very true. In all the decades I've been an adult, this nation is the most politically polarized, venomous and divisive I've ever seen. Mind you, I wasn't an adult during the McCarthy era, so possibly things were worse back then. But this is the worst I've personally ever seen. And it's not just among politicians. I've never seen everyday citizens literally dispising each other for no other reason than which political party they belong to. (Again, excluding the 50's, which I personally didn't observe.)

    20 years ago the economy was kicking ass. People are not so divided when their 401k is doubling every 5 years.
