A few times you've mentioned what is going to happen in November after the election. I have to say, 'stop, and smell the coffee.'
The only thing about it, however, is that our current circumstances are tiny fractions, at best, compared to the actual events. The coverage and the emotional, unthinking tsunami of ignorance makes those willing to be whipped into a frenzy, frenzied.
Such a fitting statement for a football forum. One of the things I noticed several weeks ago was a majority of those who've been whipped into this frenzied state are the same ones who get whipped into the same shape with every bad break that happens in the course of a game.
A lot like golf, ya know? You have to be even keeled to be good at golf, or fishing. They go hand in hand.
This is why I liked the football analogies Tim and I were talking about this week. How different is what you're referring to than having Danielson, and the like, bombard your Saturday with commentary on the football game you know isn't correct? It gets to the point you're saying, "okay, that's your opinion Gary, it's not based on reality, it's based on talking points to incite."
You get it. You have to choose are you going to continue to sit and listen to the constant bombardment or turn it off? If you listen to it enough it will have an impact on you one way or another. If you keep listening many times it an emotional response like anger. That is an extremely unhealthy place to be in my view. Just read many of the posts on this site. That is not who I want to be or become so I choose to turn it off which takes me back to my comment about backing away from the fray.
