No matter who you vote for on November 8th (and please, please do!), I think there’s one thing that most Americans can agree on: we’re tired. We’re tired of this pervasive feeling that everything in this country is going to hell in a handbasket, even if we can’t seem to agree on the root causes. I think, as a nation, we need a vacation.
Here are a few things that, rightly or wrongly, I am sick of hearing about.
- Reality Shows
- The Economy
- The Environment
- Rights, or lack thereof
- Child Rearing
- Anything that ends in “ism”, “ist” or “phobic”
- Health Care
- Scandals, especially as they pertain to celebrities
- Natural Disasters
- Mental Illness
- The Internet
Please understand. I realize it’s important that most of these things get discussed and acted upon. They need to be part of the national conversation. (Well, except for the celebrity bs.) But in this day and age we are bombarded with these topics every waking moment. There seems to be no respite. I think I’m speaking for pretty much everybody when I say, “Can we just… not? For even 5 minutes? Pretty please?
