I Think I'm suffering from news overload! It's almost like an addiction, you know too much is bad for you, but you just have to have the next story!
The local news is about the same anywhere you go, murders, hold ups, accidents,and local politics, the format is pretty much the same across the U.S., but then you get a dose of the national news! This is news that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief. This is where you get the mother load of political stupidity from all of the egotistical fools we have elected. The game of our side wins, to H*ll with what the American people want, goes on every day. It's a train riding on greased rails and we, the people, are standing at the stop block, waiting to be run over!
Next you get clobbered with the war news in Afganistan, a country where local serfdom's rule and have ruled for centuries. A country where no real national government exists. If the Russians with the brutality in fighting they have could'nt do it, we should have taken a lesson! Then the Wikileaks mess! This Guy Assange
needs sombody to open a can of whop-ass on him and his shadow followers. Then you have our beloved Prez. What a work of art!
The list goes on and on. The government keeps the propaganda machine well oiled, and the news media spoon feeds it to us all day on the news channels. I know we are lucky to live in a country where we have access to (unfiltered, Ha!) news, and the right to express our views.
I used to work with a fellow who was oblivious of any current news events, he did'nt complicate his life
with any news unless it directly affected him, maybe he was smarter than I gave him credit for!
