How to escape from the idiocy that makes people conflict with each other? I think my current sources of irritation include particular radio stations, television news programmes and certain parts of newspapers.
I'm annoyed with the constant stupid predictions by 'economic experts' - there are no such things. All these people offer are opinions and, frankly, most of those are less accurate than my own observations. Why does the media give them such credence?
I'm totally over people acting as victims. Some whole nations do this - they become used to violence and conflict as a way of life. Nothing will ever change as long as they hold onto their hurt and seek revenge.
I'm fed up with our media working themselves into a frenzy over totally trivial political issues. They need to get proper lives. Indeed, if I never hear a politician's voice again, I'll be a happy woman. Is it all a show or do they actually believe what they're spouting?
So I'm changing my radio station, I'm not watching the tv news, and I'm going to focus on the positive part of life. Small actions maybe, but I just can't absorb anymore of the world's angst.
Now I'm going to start by enjoying the latest copy of Quilting Arts magazine...
