Tune Out The News!

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 3, 2018

         HOW WOULD YOUR LIFE BE DIFFERENT IF YOU TURNED OFF AND TUNED OUT OF THE NEWS FOR A DAY, OR MAYBE A WEEK? I CAN’T BECAUSE MY JOB IS TO WRITE ABOUT AND COMMENT ON IT. BUT IF YOU ARE NOT IN THE NEWS BUSINESS, OR POLITICS, HOW MIGHT YOUR LIFE BE DIFFERENT IF YOU JUST TUNED OUT FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME?

         THINGS ARE SO DEPRESSING, AREN’T THEY? POLITICIANS CONSTANTLY BATTLE FOR POWER AND WHEN THEY GET IT DO LITTLE WITH IT – UNLESS THEY ARE DEMOCRATS WHO RAISE YOUR TAXES AND TRY TO PASS LEGISLATION TO CONTROL YOUR LIFE AND BUSINESS.

         CULTURALLY THINGS ARE EVEN MORE DEPRESSING.

         THE NEWS HAS BECOME LIKE A SOAP OPERA. IF YOU MISS A FEW EPISODES YOU HAVEN’T REALLY MISSED ANYTHING BECAUSE PEOPLE IN SOAP OPERA EPISODES, PEOPLE WILL STILL BE CHEATING ON THEIR SPOUSES, OR DOING SOMETHING ELSE THAT IS ALL TOO FAMILIAR.

         IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN, SPEND MORE TIME WITH THEM AND LESS WITH THE NEWS. TALK TO THEM ABOUT THEIR INTERESTS. THE LEFT AND RIGHT WILL STILL BE FIGHTING WHEN YOU TUNE IN AGAIN. HOLLYWOOD WILL STILL BE THERE, UNDERMINING WHAT’S LEFT OF CULTURE. TYRANTS WILL STILL BE ACTING TYRRANICALLY. YOU WON’T HAVE MISSED MUCH. TRY IT. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
