I have been wondering lately.......
Being more "informed" feels great at first, but I am not sure it is good. I have been hanging here and a few other places for about 5 years now, and
to be honest, I can't think of a single positive thing that has come from it. Yeah I get news a lot of times here before it hits the idiotbox, but I
don't watch the idiotbox much anyways. When I am eating a meal downstairs, that is about the only time these days. I killed all my own TV's, but the
old people still want to watch.
The outcome the past few years, I have been more informed sure, but so what? Has it helped any? I have written, emailed, called my "reps", but what
good has it done? Every single time they go against my wishes...... I am just an idiot voter, what do I know, right?
Has anyone had a positive improvement in their life from being more aware? I can't think of a single change really, other than writing and calling
people that patronize me anyways.
Other than BS that don't seem to matter much in the grand scheme of things, the only changes I have really noticed were not positive at all. Anger,
fear, and sadness are probably the top three emotions I get from being more aware. Anger when I think changes are going to happen, but somehow don't
like mittens beating Ron Paul. Fear about all kinds of things out there, end of the world, the next WW3 scenario, grabbers coming for the guns.
Sadness that we allow these things to happen in our names still. More sadness than anything else. No matter what country we are from, there is
probably something our government is doing that makes us facepalm. Why?
It's 2013, the world didn't end, let's take it back now from the evil ones!
