SHAME ON US!!!

The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.
Thomas Jefferson

I don’t think I talk much politics, and I don’t think I rant often, but today I’m compelled to make a comment.

I think it’s a mighty sad commentary on our society that we care more about what church Oprah quit 20 frigging years ago than we do how many soldiers have been killed overseas in the past 20 DAYS.

And, if you so choose, you can try to blame it on the “press” because after all the “press” are the folks that decide what gets published, but where is the outcry?  There should be DROVES of people (not just a few) telling the press that enough if f…………ing ENOUGH already and quit telling us what you WANT us to know and start telling us what we want to know.

And, an even more frightening thought is that it’s possible that the majority of people in this country really do care more about Oprah’s church going history than about the war or the economy or the environment or …

And if that’s the case than SHAME ON US!!!!

  1. That’s why there is NPR, BBC America, PBS, a plethora of current events magazines and a host of other alternatives to FoxNews and USA Today. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go check on what starlet is entering rehab today.
