Apparently my family thinks I have an anger problem. Not with them, but when I watch the news or see Tim Tebow on t.v.. lol. It's true. I get really pissed and make comments about how nucking-futs the world is. It's almost always over religion or really right-wing politics. Maybe I should just quit watching the news. It's just that there are SO MANY examples of religious morons praying to their wonderful 'god' after something awful happens to someone else. I can't stand it!
I'll just keep it to myself and call them names in my head instead of letting my family see me get outraged all time. I can't help it!
Thanks for the insights.
I can no longer watch television. I get my news online.
Now I scream at the computer.
"I you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!" Guess I took this one a little literally.
This is why I don't watch the news anymore on television. I just read it on line. That way, if I see "Tebow" or a GOP candidates name in the headline, I can choose to either skip it or to dive in with the knowledge that I'm about to read something that will make my brain cells cry.
I used to be like that, booklover. I got to the point of isolating myself from the news, pop culture, people I used to talk to, etc. I did that for 5 years, but out of curiosity I bought a flatscreen and viewed free broadcast channels. I couldn't believe how the world had changed, and I was amazed by the crazy graphics that football games had. They showed field markers on the field that looked like it was painted on and all that, it was crazy. Don't do what I did, because you'll find yourself very alone, and feeling left out of the rest of the world, no matter how ignorant it seems. I've been moving forward and trying....I get like 3 or 4 texts a week on my phone, and perhaps one day I'll even get a friend on this site.
In general, i get angry over the topic of praying. If god has a plan, are xtians asking him to alter his plan? "Please god, forget about the starving children for a moment, and help me throw a touchdown pass next quarter."
nah... seems the more pent up hatred is on the other side o da fence nowdays
