Thoughts about the day: Once again the media. RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. They are SO biased and self-promoting. They think they know all and they go on and on and on. They are so one-sided! BUT I said thoughts--plural, so more: How lucky we are to live in this country. I know we are down and there are so many scandals, people out of work, in an undeclared war and on and on, but there still is no other country like this. Other countries watch our peaceful transfer of powers and have to be in awe...and ENVY. Our pomp and circumstance every four years is wonderful (I don't know if it is $170 million wonderful, but nonetheless) and it reinstills pride and patriotism. We get to relive so much of our wonderful history on this day. We get to make history on this day. We are reminded of how great it is to be an American. No matter who we wanted to be president, now is the time to pray for the best, hope for the future and work for the good. Now is the time to remind ourselves what it means to be an American. Now is the time to go back to the values on which we founded and built this country. Now is the time to drop to our knees each night and say, "God Bless America."

I come from a long line of journalists. Journalists that believed in being unbiased and 'reporting' the news, not 'making' the news, or 'opinionating' the news. For about the last six months...or more...I have often wondered what my grandfather would think about the media today. I am tired of it all. I am tired of the media. I am tired of journalists (for lack of a better word) that report the news how they 'want' to report it. This biased media slants stories from football to presidential politics. I am tired of it and do not see it getting any better. I am a news junkie. I like to know what is going on in the world each and every day. To that end, I notice the bias and liberalism more and more. Is it ever going to get any better? What can we do about it? Does anyone else sense this and feel the disgust?
