To be perfectly honest, I am getting a bit fed up with the media’s infatuation with gay marriage and guns. To me, television 2013 is threatening to get even more boring than television 2012 when we endured about a year of inane political campaign commercials. After a tiny respite, I am once again ready to start tossing shoes at the television and tearing to shreds the daily blah the Denver Post has become.
It’s not that I have anything against gays, or heterosexuals for that matter, I believe they ought to be able to get married. If most of their marriages last longer than all of Rush Limbaugh’s put together, they’ll be considered successful.
I don’t have anything against gun owners either, or non gun owners for that matter. I just think the “conceal carry” stuff is BS. I think the law should require them to carry their guns in plain sight, such as cowboys did in the olden days. Even their AK 47s, 49s, 50s, or whatever, Then we’d at least know who to take out with our first burst–the guy, or gal, with the biggest gun, right?
If I am angry at anybody, it is the media that gets giddy over social issues.
My nightly dose of MSNBC has disappeared; I am now reduced to watching reruns of Law and Order, Special Victims Unit. Enough is enough!
Meanwhile, the real world continues to turn, it seems, toward darkness. We are trying to cope with a lunatic punk in North Korea who is threatening to blow up his neighbor to the south where all those Hyudais and Kias—driven in this country by so-called American patriots–are made. Iran is trying its damndest to build a nuke.
There is also an island nation in the Mediterranean, Cypress–where I made a short visit during my Navy days a millennium or so ago–that might undermine the world’s economy.
And, our president is making noises like he wants to cut my Social Security benefits, while the Republicans are hoping they can make the rich richer, which certainly leaves me out of the equation. We still have high unemployment, stagnant wages and astronomical health care costs. And, last time I checked, the immigration problem was still with us.
Who cares? We get to watch Wayne LaPierre and Rachel Maddow duke it out.
Hold on. Let me get this other shoe untied.
