As a blogger, I should be watching all the political shows. I should be watching Question Period everyday, and I should be reading all the newspapers to get a good idea of what the talking points for the day are, for all political parties. I tried that, it was depressing. So, I stopped.
I stopped, because I was tired of reading and listening to leftist slop. I don't need to read the Toronto Star to get the news. They do not report the news, they report their opinions disguised as the news, same with CBC and CTV. I disagree with their opinions, therefore I don't read or listen to them. It's simple, easy and reduces stress.
Of course, my trolls will yell that I'm not getting a rounded opinion if I ignore everything lefty. So what? Why do I need to listen to their yapping?
I am a Conservative, I know what I stand for, and I know what direction I want to see my country go in. If that doesn't match up with lefties views, too bad. Conservatives need to get that spark back, that hunger for our views to be heard. We need to stop listening to the biased MSM, they can't stand us, we know that, so why support them by even reading their views online?
We need to do as Sandy over at Crux of the Matter advocated, don't get mad, get positive. Ignore the opposition gnats, think about how lucky we are that the Conservatives are in government. Think about what an adult Canadian does everyday. We get the kids to school, get ourselves to work, come home and watch curling or the food channel (I love that channel, if I cooked like those chefs, I'd weight 200 pounds), then we go to bed, and repeat it all the next day. Sounds boring, but it's better than being in Afghanistan!
Who is spinning the political issues? The MSM. Why? Profits. Stop going to those papers you disagree with on political issues, as their readership dies, so goes their ad income. If a tiny store in Quebec can be boycotted by lefty activists because they sell shoes from Israel, then we can boycott those newspapers and TV shows that we disagree with as well, fair is fair. Conservatives aren't big on protesting in person, we are too busy working, but we can protest online. We can make sure we comment on articles. We can email our MP's. We can stop being the silent majority, we can make our voices heard through facebook, twitter, and blogging. Don't get mad, get positive!
Here's how you can do it, humour works.
