Fantastic positive video.....

Mark Shields and his buddy Brooks are class acts and they come from my generation....

I hope they are right and politicians will become noble and popular again for the masses after all these years of hate filled one sidedness....


We must find/ concentrate on common ground and optimism again for us all to grow....

Yes comrade, a glorious future where your worth is determined by identity group intersections. Where our POTUS doesn't have to campaign or answer questions just be endorsed by social media plutocrats and media elites. Common ground where BLM Marxists funded by hundreds of millions in corporate donations promulgate race baiting and violent looting.

Yes sir, we'll all be better off when we unite around the 1619 project teaching our shameful history. The Republic must be burnt to the ground to save it.

I remember Mark Shields from The Capital Gang (which ran on PBS, from 1988 to 2005).

He was (and, I suppose, still is) liberal.

But he was not really unlikable, in my view.

His beliefs, however, were quite a different matter...
