Genesis - That's All

Oy. Talk about your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. I have a sneaking confession about today's crop of Sunday talkers: I don't care what they say anymore. That's all. The country is falling apart--the richest country in the world--and they won't say what the real problems are and they won't approach real solutions and they won't name the names that need to be called out. I could say day, and they'd say night, tell me it's black when I know that it's white. It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all.
