A Useful Suggestion

All our problems might be solved if politicians would do more to emulate the Old Farmer's Almanac, and strive to be "useful with a pleasant degree of humor."

The Problem

The problem we have now, in 2014, is that simultaneously everything is up for debate and nothing is open for discussion.  We argue about whether the world was created in six days and whether humans are having an impact on climate ... but it is impossible to have a real discussion about how to fix clearly broken immigration and health care systems.  We will only move forward if we can agree to recognize reason and reasonable positions.  It really is pretty simple.  Until we can agree that not everything is really up for debate but something needs to be open for discussion, then we might as well save our breath.
