I am tired of hearing about the Russians.
I am tired of listening to celebrities telling me how they think I should live while they are paid millions to pretend to be somebody else.
I am tired of all the reports of people being beaten to a bloody pulp for the crime of wearing a Trump cap.
I am tired of Congress spending so much time trying to get rid of Trump and so little time on doing what we elected them to do.
I am just plain tired of Black Lives Matter for dozens of reasons.
I am particularly tired of California Representative Maxine Waters and her ilk screaming impeachment at every turn.
And I am tired of news articles like the one that set me off on this rant today. It seems that two black ministers are suing Coca Cola because they believe too many persons of color drink too many sodas that cause them to become obese. It's because Coca Cola advertises their products, don't you see.
Let that sink in.
Seems to me that if you drink sodas and you are fat, one thing you could do is, oh I don't know, maybe stop drinking sodas? Of course, that would require some personal responsibility. Can't have that. Being personally responsible means that you have to work on the problem yourself and stop blaming others for your actions.
I can't do anything about any of the above. People are going to be mean and hateful no matter what I say. And so far, I have found no way to fix Stupid. I can't just stop checking the news reports because I think it is important to keep an eye on what is going on in the world. That is part of the preparedness thing.
But I can spend far less time on the headlines and much more time doing what makes me and mine happy. Sounds like a plan to me.
Kicking that well used soapbox back into the corner now.
