How Bad Is It? It’s Bad. No, It’s Not.

As a confessed news junkie, I have learned to moderate my habit out of the need to maintain some level of sanity. I have friends who might challenge the sanity part, but they’re the ones who drink cheap beer. I digress. It’s easy to get sucked into the vortex of bad news and rage, especially if you embrace a recent poll from the University of Chicago that says we will soon be going to the mattresses against the government. But I learned a long time ago that things are rarely as bad or as good as they seem. So I’m not buying it and neither should you.
