  1. Right you are, indeed. It’s like “the weather”. People who are worried that someone might slash their throats if they talk about real things going on right in front of them are “polite” and therefore only speak of that which is happening miles and miles away. The fact that anyone watches news on television astounds me. The fact that they consider themselves “informed” scares hell out of me. The higher brows delude themselves that something like the New York Times is not slightly more sophisticated propaganda.

    • Politics is sports for the educated, a pointless distraction that gives people something to talk about that never challenges the status quo, but makes them feel smarted than people who talk about football.
