I have started a new routine. I am no longer watching TV before bed. I use to fall asleep to the television, in the background. I found my sleep to be restless, and that has got to stop. So my doc recommended trying to use talk radio to act as white noise. It works, and I am sleeping better.
The issue now is that the only talk radio is Conservative talk radio. If I spend even a tiny bit of attention to what is going on with any selected program, I get angry. Last night, A particular radio host was able to connect El Nino, the drought, Domestic terrorism, gun laws, the fact that the social security administration is buying hollow point bullets, and increased cost of bread, to Barrack Obama's marriage to Michelle. Do not ask me how he did it, but you could not stop people from calling in and agreeing with him. They say president Obama's name so much, that he is showing up in my dreams.
When did talk radio become I hate Obama radio? I am not sure , whether this is just a phenomenon of late night radio, but I am attempting to listen to it all day to see if things change. So far, it has not. Though, this morning they seem to be more topical and are responding to news events of the day. There is is still a rather obvious negative spin on every commentary.
So what happen? Where did all the topical, and funny radio talk shows go? Has it all become political radio? Maybe it is just my fault for turning back to 19th century technology to eliminate a 21st century problem? Why all the anger?
