I tried to be a good citizen and learn about current politics tonight. FAIL!

I wanted to be informed and smart. I wanted to know what people had to say about the candidates and current events….

This is how it came across.

“Blah, blah, blah……………… Romney…………. blah, blah, blah…………….Obama…………… Blah, blah, blah……………. Akin………………….. Blah, blah, blah………….. Romney says shame on you, Akin…………… Blah, blah, blah…………… Almost everyone says shame on you, Akin…………………Blah, blah, blah………….. Clay Aiken’s twitter…………. blah, blah, blah……………………. Obama’s dog is on a diet………… Blah, blah, blah…………. Republicans suck………….. Blah, blah, blah…………… Democrats suck……………… Blah, blah, blah……………… God……………. Blah, blah, blah………….. Separation of church and State……………. Blah, blah, blah…………… The economy sucks…………. Blah, blah, blah………….. The economy is improving……………… Blah, blah, blah………….. Unemployment is up………………… Blah, blah, blah…………………. The view of unemployment is inaccurate………….. Blah, blah, blah…………. Don’t talk about Republican politicians lying, let’s remind you of John Edwards………….. Blah, blah, blah…………… Babies conceived of rape should still live………………… Blah, blah, blah……………….. Right to choose…………….. Blah, blah, blah………………… Weed should be legal…………… Blah,  blah, blah………………….. Marijuana is a gateway drug………………… Blah, blah, blah……………. Gays don’t deserve the same rights as me…………………. Blah, blah, blah………….. As a minister I can persecute gays by refusing to acknowledge their existence, but you cannot persecute me for making that decision…………….. Blah, blah, blah…………………. Syria sucks……………………. Blah, blah, blah……………………. Afghanistan military and police are killing a heck-of-a-lot-of our troops………….. Blah, blah, blah……………………U.S. troops have killed a heck-of-a-lot of Afghani civilians…………Blah, blah, blah………………… Mortgage interest rates were at an all time low, but they aren’t anymore……………. Blah, blah, blah………………….. I’m a Republican, I’m a Democrat……………….. Blah, blah, blah……………………….”

It’s enough to make a person go crazy! I am absolutely incapable of learning about all points of view.

Folks are upset about the young adulthood being apathetic. Let’s consider all of the effing information being thrown in our faces! We cannot, in an entire lifetime, digest all the information put in front of our faces on a weekly basis! Let’s find a true source of information that will “Cliff’s Notes” the eff out of this mess and then maybe we can wade through the muck toward the truth.

FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING GOOD AND HOLY GET TO THE MOTHER FLIPPING POINT AND WE’LL PAY MORE ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And done.

  1. Yep, that about sums it up.
    I like washingtopost.com They have a “fact checker” column that is pretty good at calling bs on both sides.
    Sadly, I think your post is about the best cliffs notes of what’s going on now.
