You canât go to a bar or a play. You canât go out to eat with friends. You canât even go to a big family dinner without getting into an angry political argument.
Everyone has a strong opinion about Trump, Hillary, Rocket Man, healthcare, Confederate statues, the minimum wage - everything. And their opinion is always right and everyone elseâs is always wrong.
Thereâs hardly a place left where you can get away from politics and find a little fun and solace. I canât even relax in front of the TV anymore. I canât watch the news, sports, the morning shows or the late-night talk shows. Or the Academy Awards, the Emmys or âSaturday Night Live.â
No matter where I click, thereâs no escape from liberal politics and the mediaâs nonstop drumbeat of Trump Hate.
Even TV weather reports have become polluted. I think every hurricane, thunderstorm, wild fire, drought, flood, snowstorm, heat wave or heavy dew that has negatively affected North America since June has been blamed on humans, their cars or Donald Trumpâs energy policies.
Whatâs the next place on TV to be ruined by liberals and their politics, the shopping channels? Will HSN soon start hawking âTrump the Chumpâ and âAmerika Sucksâ T-shirts?
Or will it be the game shows? Will âThe Price Is Rightâ be renamed âThe Price Is Unfairâ? Will America have to watch âWheel of White Oppressionâ?
Will Alex Trebek come out and take a knee to protest how President Trumpâs strict immigration policy hurts Canadians? How long before weâll be hearing âJeopardy!â contestants say, âIâll try âRussian Collusionâ for two-thousand, Alexâ?
Itâs gotten so bad Iâm afraid to ask Alexa or Siri a question. Iâm afraid one of them will tell me to go to Hell or say, âWhat do you want now, you stinking Republican?â
Itâs always been tough for a conservative Republican to read, watch or listen to the mainstream media without becoming incensed by their dominant liberal bias. But at least not so long ago you could still stay up late and watch Steve Allen, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno or Merv Griffith and fall asleep with a smile on your face.
Allen, Carson, Leno and Griffith had their personal politics. They had their favorite presidential candidates and made plenty of Nixon, Reagan and Bush jokes. But did Carson or Leno vote for my father? For Jimmy Carter? Bill Clinton? Did they support welfare reform? I can guess, but I donât know for sure.
Even David Lettermanâs politics - up until the end of his reign when he went over the liberal cliff - was a mystery or nonexistent.
Unlike our current trio of liberal preachers - Colbert, Kimmel and Myers - the late-night talk show stars of yesteryear didnât misuse their powerful platforms to ridicule the president every night and slobber all over his critics and enemies.
People wonder why Americans today seem so angry at each other all the time. One reason is because the people like Kimmel and Colbert who are supposed to make us laugh are too busy pushing their hateful politics down our throats to do their job.
