Fox Debate Tonight... or... Faux... Debate Tonight?

Well, folks, the so-called "undercard" debate starts tonight at 7:00 p.m. (Probably closer to 7:10 p.m. after the moderators get done bloviating.)

The "real" debate - 9:00 p.m.

The question is... what's the point in watching?


Oh... I'll be watching! (The "real" debate at least; not sure if I can stomach four full hours of bull$hit.)

Will Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio be asked WHY they didn't attempt to filibuster the latest Porkulus Budget Buster bill - the "Pile More Debt Upon the Sheeple, Their Children, and Their Grandchildren While Further Expanding the Size, Scope, and Reach of the Out of Control Federal Government Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015... Thru 2017?"


Not likely, right?


Did any of you read my "stand alone" blog post of last night concerning the H-2B Visa issue? Will the moderators dig into that issue - or even the H-1B Visa issue within the context of the facts as we know them?




Will the candidates be asked simply and direct foreign policy questions such as, "Who is America's most dangerous enemy: Russia? China? Isis? North Korea? And why?"


Nope. I highly doubt it. I mean... "simple and direct" just isn't the media's style; "simplistic and often ridiculous" is.

I could go on and on... but what's the point? There's nothing I can do to change things. And the truth is... few of even you folks - the folks who pay attention - actually feel strongly about changing the reality of these so-called "debates" from "entertainment" to true policy forums.

Oh, well...


I hope most of watch, at least. Watching may not really "help" - but it certainly can't hurt.
