Hey, I want to laugh as much as the next person. I try to cut up here to make things a bit more easy and to keep our heads from exploding. There is much going on in the news of late. We are learning about cells in European countries that are being rounded up after the Paris ordeal. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia just died. This has a great impact on the stability of that region. At the same time, Obama’s buddy who has made Yemen an ally of the West, has been ousted from office and the country is about to go into drastic turmoil. Iran is believed to be of great influence in all the region and could drastically change the landscape. It is still continuing to develop its nuclear program while Obama gives away everything. In the meanwhile, the new Congress is having the Israeli PM speak to Congress about the Iran situation where Congress may act to instill sanctions back on Iran. This is just a little peek of what has happened in the last 72 hours.
So what is gaining traction in the news? A story about the Patriots dropping a pound or two of air pressure out of their footballs while playing the Colts. It is forefront in most broadcasts and seems to be earth shattering. Or how about this story about a comedian that gets to do an interview with Obama. Not only did the WH staff not vet the individual, but if they had, I don’t think he would have wasted his time since there is TOO MUCH IMPORTANT STUFF GOING ON ELSEWHERE. Am I making too much of this or is this just another showing about how upside down the news and this world is. I would like to have a good laugh but not before we rid ourselves of some of the things that are affecting my and my children’s security and way of life. The real news that is happening is not just something you blow off or dismiss. I wonder when our news corps will ever regain the people’s trust or their lost integrity?
