Working out of the funk

Arabian Nights: King of the Black Isles by Maxfield Parrish

I’ve had a week or 2 of “just too much.” Too much information and too many events that are too depressing, too frustrating, too sad that I just had to walk away from it all for a while. There are some things I can’t walk away from, in my personal life. But there are things in the news that make me want to cry or scream at the stupidity and callousness of people.

I hate neglecting my blog and I really hate neglecting the blogs of my fellow bloggers, although I know they understand all too well how we all get overloaded on occasion.

Everyone feels information overload now and then, especially in these days of instant news.

One thing that’s really getting under my skin is all this polling nonsense. I don’t want to see anymore polls about hypotheticals.  I don’t want to see anymore of those “if this person were running” what the outcome would be stats. If they’re not officially in the race, I don’t care. Let them do their own internal polling to decide if they should be in or not. In fact, it’s all too early to judge and we all have our own personal favorites. Intentional or not, this kind of polling news shapes the mood of the country.

I’m tired of the distortions and double standards in the news, primarily from the left. When will someone ask a democrat politician if he disavows Ed Schultz’ slut rant about Laura Ingraham? They ask the same stupid questions of republicans over anything that Rush Limbaugh says, although the worst I’ve ever heard Rush call a liberal woman is a FemiNazi. Why anyone should be expected to condemn the opinions of another is beyond me, but they do it all the time to republicans and conservatives. Why not ask a democat/liberal that same question?

What we see happening in the south with the flooded farmland and the tornado destruction is so heartbreaking. I don’t see the feds or the president in there doing a whole lot to help those people. Just a lot of lip service from TheOne. Most of those people, though would prefer that the feds stay out of their problems. They’d rather take care of themselves and their own. That’s the mentality of Americans in fly-over country. They are the originators of “YES WE CAN do it ourselves and better, thank you very much!”  And they do and will.

/rant over.

You know, I’d rather write about Maxfield Parrish. He’s one of my favorite artists/illustrators. My daughter was born on his 110th birthday.

    As Barone has stated-‘we have a gangster government’, which punishes red states who did not vote for the current admin.. To deny federal help in chaos is criminal in my opinion, threatening Texas with a no-fly zone because of a ‘No Grope TSA Bill’ is beyond criminal.
    We have no good people in government; that’s why I have ‘brain overload’ issues-the audacity of a admin who gives a rats ass for anyone who did not vote for them; a corrupt to the core justice department and so on.

    2012, can’t come soon enough, and even there I have my doubts-voterfraud brought in the current admin, will they do it again?
