I gave up watching or following politics 2 months ago. I haven't watched a news program in 2 months. I got tired of listening to all the left wing garbage and left wing bias/untruths/outright lies that I cut news out cold turkey. I only look at news headlines on the internet(I don't open the articles). I blame the reporters/politicians for pushing this country into a recession with all their doom and gloom news. To me, it seems like these reporters(and useful idiot politicians) are just out to instigate trouble. How long can I go? I don't miss it at all! I just decided that these left wing politicians/reporters don't deserve my time and I quit supporting them by watching. It is my way of saying to them(politicians and reporters), begone, you are not important in my life. Maybe if the ratings drop far enough, they will change(wishful thinking on my part). My TV viewing now consists of 1)Football 2)Food channel 3)Movies with the wife(preferably older, movies that is) 4)History channel 5)Weather channel.
