Back in the early 1980’s, the grass roots movement of recycling began. This influenced groceries stores to give consumers a choice as environmentalists pressured chain stores to avoid cutting down trees. Instead of double bagging heavy items, customers were encouraged to use plastic over paper. Today, plastic has prevailed putting news papers on the verge of extinction.
Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out, Proverbs 17:14.
Those major news papers that remain are on life support. Why, you may ask? Well. earlier in the week, one business apologized to subscribers due to the unfair treatment of Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential Election. On the same day, there were 17 negative stories printed demonizing the Donald Trump; none were positive. Meanwhile, following the Republican National Convention, another paper hired 30 journalists to dig up dirt on Donald Trump. Perhaps, this may explain why readers are now choosing social media over the print media.
Eloquent lips are unsuited to a godless fool— how much worse lying lips to a ruler! – Proverbs 17:7.
Sooner or later, the American public is going to turn a deaf ear from dishonesty. It doesn’t take much to discern someone who is real from a phony individual. Like plastic, these imitations will be exposed. Unfortunately, when context, the facts and truth is distorted, gossip has turned into reality poisoning the minds of many Americans. Its sad that many have rejected Donald Trump as president without ever serving a day in office. Yet, then again if making America great again involves putting paper in the form of cash into people’s pockets, perhaps the narrative will change. Until then prayer for our future leaders so that give will breath life into a country falling apart.
