    No that was his brother, Yogi.

    We're talking about it in advance to avoid the necessity of talking about it later. I will be watching reruns of Honey Boo-Boo and Duck Dynasty, which will have approximately the same content value.

    There will be talking about it later. That's not going to be avoided. Most people won't watch it, but they will be upset or cheering for it by the little clips and quotes they read from it by "non biased" sources.

    Exactly where does one find those "non biased" sources? My search for these elusive sources has gone galactic. I'll satisfy myself by making comments on the comments here in this instance. Truth and politics don't occupy the same territory.

    You need to use the process of elimination. Find the sources on the far right and read them. Find the sources on the far left and read them. They will both be 100% wrong. Then you can tell what was NOT in it. From there you can probably figure out what was actually said.

    I agree, and I have done just that. It's a lot of reading sometimes, and it's hard to read some of it with a serious, sober attitude. I know that if I listen to this speech, I'll just get seriously irritated, and I generally avoid that these days simply because I'm 64 and have been irritated enough already for one lifetime. Sometimes I turn the television on, mute it, and fill in the words myself to music. Far less stressing...

    It's going to be another "shovel-ready" performance. Get your shovels ready.

    Probably not. He has no credibility and will just be lying, spinning, demonizing and threatening to shred the constitution with illegal executive orders the whole time.

    We need to go back to when the SOTU was just a letter the president sent to congress.
    I vote for this too. The SOTU probably costs us taxpayers a LOT of money for something that does nothing to inform us of what state the union is in, but provides the President a bully pulpit for still another campaign speech he can expect to be covered by all the networks and cable news channels.

    You could watch it rather than rely on sources.
