I normally keep my mouth shut. I usually choose not to speak my mind and give any energy to negativity, opinions, news reports, blog comments, and even over the years I've become less and less interested in watching television for many of these reasons. Let's just say as a close family member MOST of what you see or read or hear from others in general is FALSE information. I repeat FALSE information. Some are not malicious and just reporting on incorrect details and some are.
