I once listened to an interview with Dan Rather. He talked about the importance of being skeptical (and not cynical). That means learning to question things.
Now more than ever, we need to learn to question what we’re told by our governmental officials.
For example, White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow announced that the federal budget deficit was decreasing because of President Trump’s tax cut.
The deficit is NOT decreasing. It’s increasing and quickly.
Don’t take things on face value.
