Just Turn it OFF


I made the mistake of turning on the news the other day while I was in my art studio trying to paint.  After and hour or so I realized I was completely stressed.  My painting wasn’t going well and I was twisting on my chair and muttering about the news.  I realize they need to fill airspace but why do we need to go through the political angst every time the government needs to do something.  That is what we pay them for to figure it out. So they all fight, special interests do their maneuvering and back office deals get made and broken. They leak what they want us to hear to the news and business goes on as usual, generally the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. They want us to get all upset so we will believe things like taxing the rich will cost us jobs and that we all need to tighten our belts to help the rich guys out so they can take care of us.  I could have gone all day without hearing that. I consider that on the level of the lie that what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her.  Baloney, cow flop, fly specks, turkey guano, toe jam, street spit and long green slime!  That’s it! I am turning off the radio until the next election is OVER.
