Why discuss it?
Why not do something about it instead?
Doesn't discussing it simply polarise opinions and make matters worse? If we have a bit of fun together we might come to an understanding. Serious people are always negative. And they are usually in a minority.
But to express their seriousness they have to eschew the fun side and if they hog the airwaves the impression gets about that the serious agenda is the only agenda and then the poll result is what you get.
There's 290 odd million Americans and just a few thousand creating their image who got to where they are (big money and sticking their ugly distorted fissogs into every home) by being serious and it is that image which the poll refers to and it doesn't take me in.
