The same group of unenlightened Nation readers are now flogging a dead horse day after day.
The horse in question is discredited allegations against Donald Trump that are so old and unsubstantiated they are gathering flies. The floggers appear to be ardent viewers and readers of CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post. The last is owned by Jeff Bezos, who received a financial injection of $600 million from the CIA, no less. So much for factual and unbiased reporting!
In direct contrast to the fake-news floggers are thoughts expressed recently by letter-writers Nigel Pike and JC Wilcox, two gentlemen for whom I have the greatest respect. To their factual and historically accurate contributions I would add this quote from the lips of German thinker Wolfgang Goethe: “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
