Public discourse is a great deal like water: it will seek its own level.

Meaning: people will do what they need to do to call attention to problems.

Those who want to ignore problems while they perpetuate those problems obviously hope that the public will just go along with whatever construct has been used to replace the truth!

We in Sweetwater will not fall prey to Shinoff and Brand's clumsy ploy, laughably transparent as it is. Just another grease stain on the pathway, kind of disgusting, but not really an obstacle.

We ask for the truth, we deserve the truth, we will accept nothing but the truth, and if that is uncivil, so be it. False piety serves no one.

Brand and Shinoff are serving false piety, and no one is taking.
