Well, what does? You can't reason with someone that angry... Might as well stay happy and be a smart butt instead.

I agree with keeping yourself informed but its too hard todo so.
I have a job and a family, trying to keep up with all of Washington is a full time, 24/7 job in itself.
Sorry. But it is VITAL for you and your family that you at least make an effort. It doesn't take much. My mate works full time too and still keeps up with the news. A few glances at the Drudge Report and following a few rabbit holes usually does the trick.

I know how you feel. We shouldn't HAVE to keep up with what these clowns pull on us. Unfortunately, they have discovered that ugly truth. We all work hard and they're counting on that fact that we're uninformed. They will wait till WE are enjoying our time off on weekends and holidays and in the dead of night to do their dirty work. It's pathetic that it has come to this.

We are being micromanaged.

By the way, "Mr. Goodwrench", if you have any family member who is willing and has more time on their hands, that helps too. A college age child can do this if they have the ability to think on their own.

It IS hard to have enough time. Take for example the last major election. I didnt vote for president because I didnt have the time to check out all those candidates-there were just too many! I only have a certain amount of time and I couldnt do it.

I disagree with you Truth when you said "But it is VITAL for you and your family that you at least make an effort. It doesn't take much." It DOES take much, a whole lot in fact.

Take for example what I just mentioned with the people running for president. I would've had to look them up on their own sites 1st, then read how they stand on the issues. Then I'd have to look for news about them and fact check the news I find, "Did the candidate say that or is it made up by someone with an agenda?" Then I'd have to look up unedited sources for comparison, and these unedited sources would have to be checked in case their site isn't legit. etc. etc. On and on it goes, for EACH candidate. That's just too much work when you've got a life to live. It's 24/7 like he said.

Got an easier way. Listen to what they say on the news when it's time to debate or campaign; and if they've been in office before, go to the government sites and find out how they voted. Then you'll get your answer. Another way is to see who they're connected with. If they're not, it's a crap shoot. Don't bother wasting your precious time with "he said, she said."

By the way, I sympathize with your feeling like you have to babysit these folks and don't have time. We shouldn't HAVE to.

I'll try it. It certainly sounds like it's not so involved like I was thinking of.
