I’m traveling a lot this month. Something that gets even worse as I travel is my addiction to the complete waste of time we Americans call “politics.”
I watch and listen to a lot of CNN while I’m traveling – it seems like every airport television is tuned to either CNN, MSNBC, or Fox News. Right now there is a lot of talk on the news about how no one in the US Senate and House of Representatives can agree on anything (even though their own people assigned a select committee on solving our fiscal crisis and failed straight up); how the American people are getting the short end of the stick on every path imaginable while the seven or eight people who have all of the money get to do anything they want anywhere; last and perhaps most vomitous is the travesty that the Government is about to throw down to the American people that will then be spoon-fed with a silver spoon to the Telecomm giants – the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
So, all of that being said, have you been watching the Presidential Candidates’ Debates lately? Who are you rooting for at this point to lead our country down the mountain peak road we’re on with no guard rails and no brakes on the bus we’re all riding? Please participate in the poll, I am very interested in the political leanings of the huge group of people across this great planet that is the JimOnLight.com Readership!
