Where do YOU go when you're sick and tired of the political corruption, violence, hate, greed, death and destruction?

Do you look up to the skies, down to the depths of the sea or do you go inward and see what you can find there?

    HOW? Do you have a bunker or cave? Really. HOW? Thank you for your reply E and Happy Sunday to thee and thine. Oh here I ignore it too. I don't engage with the crazies who adore FOOTOO (a piece of crap). But "out there" in the real world? I read the newspapers and I watch the news. You don't?

    I can easily ignore it here. I scan for certain words as I scroll down the page. I will not answer any of those questions. Lately I have been coming here when the news is on.

    Well as you know this is my world. I stay in my corner and operate within it's construct. I agreed to it long ago and I have no problem with it. Of course that means I don't know what goes on anywhere in the elsewhere of this site. I rather like people choosing to drop by though. Thank you for your reply e! :)

    When I say 'here', I mean AM in general, not just your corner. JA told me you can go to the general area.

    I know I can go there. Just not ask questions there. i know I am not your only destination. I didn't mean to imply that. There are a bazillion conversations you can have with a bazillion different people about a bazillion different subjects. I wonder how many in what combinations? How would one calculate that? Thank you for your reply E! :)Of course now that I think of it I have to ask.

    I'll watch TV (but not the news), I'll go on Yahoo (but bypass the political items) or go on Facebook and visit with friends and family.

    I do watch/listen to the news 24/7. I read the papers. I don't F/B. I want to know what's going on. Everywhere. About everything. Thank you for your reply L! :)

    News 24/7 would drive me nuts.  I can wait until the end  of the day to find out who killed whom. :)

    It drives Jim nuts sometimes. Repetition of the news from different angles. Some days I'm fixated on it as if I were hooked on a drug and can't kick it. Other days I stay away and avoid the subject. It's been 4 years of the same old script/drivel/lies. Front and center. Now it's shoved to the side on the edges. What is going on there is probably how to get back to the middle of everything. What fancy dancies will be employed to get attention again 24/7? I shudder to think of it. Thank you for your reply L! :) This post was edited by RosieG at February 15, 2021 11:07 AM MST

    Well, so far, Trump has been very quiet, but now that his trial is over and he wasn't convicted, I'm pretty sure we'll be hearing from him because the 2022 elections are right around the corner.  The nice thing about the TV is that, if you don't like what's on, you can either change the channel or turn it off. :)

    He won't be tweeting. That's a huge blessing. Thank you for your reply L! :)

    Well, the honcho from Parler said he's going to be back on line soon, so Trump will have an outlet.

    That's an extreme right wing fascist white supremacist outlet right? Just what the world needs! People will always go for the crackpot wackadoodle when and where it is available. I have yet to figure out why that is. Do you have a clue? Thank you for your reply L! :) This post was edited by RosieG at February 22, 2021 7:23 AM MST

    Yes, that's an extreme right wing outlet.  I have no way of knowing why people flock to these kinds of groups, or any extreme group for that matter.  it's like a cult which somehow, some way fills a need in these people.

    Because they want to belong and in order belong there are strict guidelines. What shows you are allowed to watch/listen...what you are allowed to read. What you are instructed to believe. They never go outside those limits. They are terrified of not belonging to something. Terrified of being loners on their own thinking independently. ANYTHING BUT THAT! So they are docile lambs who don't astray...BAAA BAAA BAAA! Thank you for your reply L! :)
