WATCH: Tired of endless unrest and zero resolutions? Check out this nugget of civil discourse…

Whether it is politicians or social justice schemes or law enforcement fall-guys taking the extreme hit for doing their jobs as trained and according to the Constitution, one constant is folks immediately resorting to tossing TNT at each other instead of critically thinking things through, fact-checking, and shaping a reasoned response without maiming one another.

Well, this morning was met with a pleasant surprise; nothing groundbreakingly novel…just a return to civil dialogue among humans who do not know each other yet have the capability to listen and conduct conversation without leaving the setting looking post-apocalyptic.
