American Masters

"People get so much of their politics listening to other people rant and rave on the radio, sitting alone in a car, or reading somebody’s blog. And The Star Spangled Banner is one of those rare moments when we sing a song together which means more for all of us joining in. We share a common tone and a fondness for jokes, a love of American landscape, and we are a union.

I love this country. Which is one of those dumb discoveries a man makes. "

That is one of my biggest pet peeves with politics. All it is to me is regurgitated slander. One person taking on someones ideas as fact. I hate political radio. I know you enjoy it but for the most part I just like to focus on the issues at hand from trustworthy sources. (Which are?) Bottom line, we live in a damn fine country that we all should just be grateful to be a part of.

Heather, I actually hate political radio, as well. I do listen to NPR, but I always change the channel when the political stuff comes on.

I couldn't agree with you more!
