The above google trends for September 4 scare me. (Well all of the ones that I removed scared me to because they show me how much out of tune with America I have grown!)

All of these links are to American politics. It's not surprising that there would be a lot of political searches right now. I mean we are coming up on an important US presidential Election and the Republican National Convention is happening now. But where is the intelligence? This is all backstabbing, rumor mongering, petty garbage when we are facing incredible challenges in the world today and as the country with the largest economy, supporting millions and millions of people in countries all over the world, as the country with the largest consumption, the largest pollution, the largest military......we have some responsibilities....and people are concerned with personal name calling and rumor?

Talk2Me. Please tell me that it is not me who is totally out of touch with reality.

No you are not the one out of touch with reality. Then again, the reality is that Americans have been well trained to dig into the dirty details of celebrities personal lives.

FOR THE GAME:

1. let your title include 1-3 of the actual search terms you are seeing on google. (See the comment I made at grandmaswwworld on "Talk2Me" have you called your grandma today? for more explanation on this)

2. Keep it global! don't mention any name of any country. So your second paragraph should read:
