Its not "sensible" to expect the media in this country to be fair and get off the DNC payroll. No all we can do that's "sensible" is continue stealing from those that break their back working every day. All we can do that's "sensible" is keep printing money until our currency is worthless. All we can do that's "sensible" is spend this country into oblivion. Do you even understand what the word means?
