Where Did All the Soap Operas Go?

Stayed home sick from work today. It’s not bad, just feeling a bit too under the weather to manage the office today. So as I lay on my couch like a potato, flipping through the channel on the TV, I realize that most of the day time soap opera’s are gone. WTH? Talk shows, talk shows and more talk shows, a couple of game shows and that is it. I was kind of looking forward to a little blast from the past and catching up on what happened to whom with a little bit of drama and POW ! They are pretty much gone.

I am really not interested in the ones that are left, so thank you cable, I can still find something interesting to watch. Animal cops? Nope, not in the mood to cry over the poor little guys today. History channel has some show about trains in America on. Nah…too much thinking trying to retain the information ( habit I cannot break) So I guess it is either cartoons, news or a movie. I think the movie wins, since one of my favorite flicks is on. Dirty Dancing ! Yay me.

I need a fucking lobotomy

Ok, not really but I am about to lose my fucking mind. The political crap going on right now is totally mind blowing. You have to just love watching the news every day because there is one scandal after another. I cannot fathom how people who stand up and preach about honor and fidelity and morals and have absolutely none themselves. Politicians are the absolute worst people. There is non stop corruption in our government and the whole system needs to be revamped. Especially the way we vote and the party system itself. As I sit here and watch the news I am disheartened by the violence as well.

There are so many people hurting not just each other but their own children. How the fuck do they justify what they do? Sometimes I wish the reporters would just stop. Stop reporting all of the bad stuff and give us more of the good. I know we can’t get away from the political spectrum but the rest of it we could definitely do without. At least the weather is nto that bad and we have had a mild winter so far.  I think I will turn off the TV for a while and read a book.
