Is she alive?
Yes, folks. I, Lucy, am still living. I realize that I haven’t blogged in FOREVER. My deepest apologies. I don’t know where the time went…
One minute I’m driving home for Christmas break, baking Christmas cookies and opening Christmas presents with my family…
The next I’m sitting in my research methods class falling asleep. What in the world…?
But no, really. That’s exactly how it happened.
So I guess it’s back to reality. Back to life. Back to work. Back to school. Back to schoolwork. Back to politics. Can I get a whoop whoop?
Apparently I’ve missed some things while I’ve been out in LaLa land. Bachmann dropped out of the race. Romney won New Hampshire (apparently by a landslide). Ron Paul still thinks he has a chance. (Let’s hope not. What a disaster.) My hopes are still on Santorum. I refuse to give up hope. 🙂 POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING.
Man, I’m telling you, there is no good news. I sitting here skimming the front page of the Washington Post… Here are some of the headlines.
Voters unswayed by attacks on work at Bain — This has to do with Romney, if you were interested. I’m not.
Two Army brigades to leave Europe — Eh. A little bit more interesting… Not particularly.
Billion-dollar candidate? Not likely. — Of course Obama’s on here. And of course it’s a trivial subject… We all know he’s going to save his money and waste the taxpayers on lavish parties and campaign funds. We all know he’s doing it.
He’s 5’7”. And the next big thing? — Some basketball thing. Not sure why it’s important. Maybe because the dude teeny?
More older Americans are working — And… It’s because the retirement age is like 70 now. Of course older Americans are working; they don’t have a choice!
Colbert transfers super PAC to Stewart — I just don’t even know…
I have no interest in any of these articles. Shall we move onto the New York Times? Things look a little bit better here. At least some of them have a dash of relevance.
U.S. Sends Top Iranian Leader a Warning on Strait Threat — I would at least READ this article.
Danish Squatters Want to Buy but Not Own — Hmm. Sounds like people wanting others to give them stuff… Typical.
PACs’ Aid Allows Romney’s Rivals to Extend Race — Good to know, especially since I don’t really prefer good ole Romney at this point in time.
Colbert for President: A Run or a Comedy Riff? — Seriously? Of course it’s a comedy riff. Get real. This is as bad at the Post’s about Colbert and Stewart. Ding dongs.
No Snow, but a Wintry Mix of Opinion — Buurrrrr… Who’s opinion? Political opinion? Economic opinion? Student’s or adult’s opinions? Is it interesting enough to consider reading?
Video Multiplies U.S. Difficulties in Afghanistan — We do not need any more difficulties anywhere. We’re up to our ears in difficulties.
Synthetic Windpipe Replaces a Cancerous One — Whoa. That’s cool.
Ok, so, not only does the New York Times have more article options on their front page, but they’re better articles (I can’t really believe I’m saying that… Oh well.) This is going to be the moral of this story… Since I don’t feel like blogging about a particular article at this point.
There is not a single news source that a person can look at for all their information. There are days where NY Times has zero on their home page and Washington Post has something relevant. Sometimes neither of them have anything and I look on CNN and Fox News. Don’t look at one news source and call it a day. It takes a lot of research and digging to really become informed and education. Plus, when people say stupid crap such as… “You’re a conservative! You only watch Fox News. You watch biased news sources and only look at the one conservative view-point on issues…” YOU can say… “I read Fox News, I read CNN, I read the Times, I read the Post…” Educate yourself! Be better than everyone else! Know the opposing viewpoints and their arguments. That’s the only way you can formulate your arguments effectively.
Can you imagine how silly liberals would sound in they only watched CNN all day? Oh, wait….
