Blogging clearly isn't my calling, however, something stood out to me today and I would like to share. At times I've thought about the influence Fox News has on the U.S. and I've seen snippets of Gretchen Carlson, Megan Kelly and Elisabeth Hasselbeck using their smirky smiles while Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly continually believe if one is liberal they are 'evil-doers.'
This article in Salon sums up my thoughts. I'm glad I didn't sit through a month of this.
Why not progressive?
At times I'm frustrated by those that don't follow politics in the United States. I worry they don't vote, I worry they don't get their opinion out there. Of course, I am very progressive and very much in opposition to the right, however, I'm being inspired by a much greater goal than politics. Politics is all cyclical. It's not important in the grand scheme of things. The important part of life is what all the regular people are doing. I'm changing the focus of this blog a bit. Not because I think the Tea Party won the midterms or anything like that but because I want to elevate us above that sort of derogatory nonsense into something that is far more useful. Something to save us and save the world. Small goals, I know. But seriously something to talk about.
