Is it just me...

Or is the news depressing everyone else, too?

  1. I don't know what news you're talking about. If it's the real news, Egyptians told their tin-horn wannabe ruler to pound sand and the army is backing them up.

    If it's the news on television, it's depressing; especially when you realize how much money was wasted on the dental work for all those empty headed newscasters. The money would have been better spent on cheap alcohol and fireworks.

    1. Headlines like in my FFOT post this morning, and this one:

      And this one:

      Just to name a few. Oh, and then there's the economy, the "Affordable" Care Act, Zimmerman's show trial...

      I'm just feeling a bit down, and what's going on in my country isn't making it any better.

    1. More like keeping an eye on the headlines on Drudge and The Blaze, and reading a few stories here and there. Watching the news is too much like swallowing state propaganda for my taste.

  3. If you're looking to the news media for an uplifting experience, you're going to be waiting a long time.

    1. Less looking for uplifting, more that it's just making everything else seem worse.
