I hate Politics

I read this article in the most recent edition of Rolling Stone Magazine.

A few days later I saw this on the Daily Show:

And it is so true. The media doesn’t want debates about real issues or real answers from the candidates. The media wants a circus. And the media wants a circus because WE want a circus. And we want a circus because we all have ADD. So the media helps to create a circus to keep us entertained thus raising their ratings, which gets advertisers all hot and bothered because more ratings means more eyes which means more zombies seeing adds for shit they don’t need, and more advertisers wanting more zombies equates to more money for the media, which in turn causes the media to create a BIGGER circus to bring more people in! So it turns into a self propagating cycle of destruction. A perpetual motion machine that panders to the lowest common denominator. It was said the best in Fight Club; “On a long enough time line, everyone’s survivability rate goes to zero”. Keep pandering to the lowest common denominator and eventually you end up with nothing.

Sad thing is, short of some Terrible Purpose, I don’t see any way out of it.

    When the circus and propaganda gets to the point of slinging D.R.Trimmer Mowers and the zombies conclude that inorder to run the country we need to have such a device. I’ll vote for Ron Popeil instead thereby “setting and forgetting” my care for our country and its situational retardedness with respect to the rest of the world. Or perhaps since I’m neither a homeowner or a parent…I mentally write myself in as a candidate on the platform “I like animals….cuz they taste good”. Moooooo! B*tches, Mooooooo
