    Political jockeying aside, does anyone really care about all these Russian "collusion" investigations? Are there any serious beliefs out there that the Russians are running our government?

    I have become tone-deaf to this entire soap opera and hardly pay attention to the "news"anymore. Isn't anyone interested in real problems like NK, the National Debt, Social Security and the skyrocketing cost of health care?

    Are we all living in one big (un)reality show?

    I pay very little attention to it and the more newscasters turn it up the more I tune them out!

    It's astounding how hysterical the Left is over the Russian Boogeyman and yet didn't raise an eyebrow when Obama sold to the Muslim Brotherhood and the number one terrorist state in the world, Iran. Compare that to this Russia:bsflag:

    Any patriot will care that the president tried to sell out the nation to a hostile foreign power.

    Hence, I care.

    Hence, the fanatical Trump-fans here don't care. Actually, they do. They're trying to whistle past the graveyard, but they're trembling too much to pull it off.

    If and when I am shown actual evidence of a crime I will care to date all I have seen and heard are theroies, opinions, speculation and accusations based on unnamed sources. After seven months of that this all just white noise to me and I just tune it all out now.

    It needs to run its course then I will decide how much I care. At this point it looks like Putin favored Trump over Clinton (as did 40 something percent of our population!) and some Trump boys went fishing for details with mafia, er Russian strong men so it isn't a big deal with what I think are the known facts.

    Do I care? In a word, "NO".

    Let's not forget what the left thought of Russia before Trump won:
    Hillary Clinton sided with Russia on sanctions as Bill made $500G on Moscow speech

    No I really don't care, though North Korea isn't really a problem yet. Their nukes are weaker than the ones we dropped on Japan and there is no indication they are anywhere close to being about to create a proper thermonuclear warhead. I have always assumed there will be no SS for me; the national debt can be monetized if need be; and healthcare isn't skyrocketing nearly as much as health insurance premiums.
