    Is it biased, left, right, middle? Note, in my view, I think it's a bit of an exaggeration and now - with the net, everything is certainly fair, as even the vilest views can get attention on YouTube.

    Depends on how you define "Western". Think about what you just typed. There's a lot of insight there. You said "Is it biased, left, right, middle". Personally I HATE those labels but I understand that people enjoy labeling each other. But I'd yes, it's somewhat biased. The other day there was some " right wing" (uggh! Hate labels, lol) news shows gushing over Trump's tax cuts and local Walmart employees got a bonus. About $1000. What she FAILED to mention was that not all employees qualified for it. Only those who have been there for a certain amount of time. She also FAILED to mention that over 60 Sam's Clubs were closing around the country. As well as a few local Walmarts. But those little facts would have gotten in the way of the Trumpfest.

    From experience, I know running a business is tough. In other words, the taxes should be a burden - but are they? I suppose it depends on the size of a business. I mean, for an extremely small business-person, taxes and any other burden can be catastrophic.
