I just don't care
A lot of the news is psychotic anymore. One story tells us that things are great or getting better while another says they're getting worse. Who ya going to believe? I know that anything that comes out of Fox is a lie because they've lied so much they've passed up the boy who cried wolf. So I look with jaded eye over the days' events. We've lost that objective sense once seen by the likes of Edward R. Murrow, but even he was able to change opinion with his opinion pieces on Joe McCarthy. And If you don't know who they were then you're too young to be reading this.
Now I must ask have we gotten better at covering the news or are criminals just getting sloppy? In any given day we see robberies, thefts and embezzlements. Murders and suicides seem to be on the rise but then someone goes and reports that the latest government data proves otherwise. Makes you start questioning their figures. So you really don't know who to believe unless it happens in your own neighborhood or to someone you know.
As for politicians they are about useless as tits on a boar hog and at this point it's either party. They haven't fought for anybody but themselves. Stand by their principles? Just flash enough cash under their nose and they'll be whatever you want like a cheap crack whore. They get in office just long enough to learn the ropes then it's off to raise campaign funds. Do anything important? Why would they have to when it's so easy to threaten a filibuster. This isn't about a difference of opinion on a bill it's about stopping progress and basically doing nothing for a pay check. As complex as our system is a four page budget doesn't begin to cover the necessities. Screaming tax cuts over and over does not solve problems. And now the shoe is on the other foot. The other party wants to undo what was just done. Hey I've got an idea. Why don't you all just go home and save everybody a lot of money. Fire the lot of them. They're aren't doing anything productive anyway. If they actually had to do an honest days' work they'd all get a pink slip at the end of shift.
So where's the jobs Bonner? That's right it's supposed to trickle down from the fat cats above. Right. From the Buffets to the Gates or is it the other way around?
I'd have more but at this point I just don't care.
