It really wasn't because of anything Streep said specifically... She's just another nobody-nothing liberal fool spewing her stupidity among likeminded dimwits who are all far wealthier than the everyday folk they pretend to represent
What bothered us greatly was How we came to find out the ramblings of an over-rated yet critic-darling actress who has only been in one film that has grossed over $45 million in the last 11 years
We didn't watch the Golden Globes.. not one second of it
We didn't even find out about this elderly peacock actress and her stupid liberal comments from a political website which would have made a tiny bit of sense only because President-Elect Trump fired back some tweets..
Nope.. We got the info while on a financial news website.
You know.. a place people go if they want to read on stocks/bonds & global markets, job reports, GDP outlook, the overall state of the economy...
This more than anything is the real problem with news today.. It is just damned impossible to avoid information that is upsetting, irritating or just plain irrelevant to everyday life
And when we go on a weather based website to check out what the temperature is going to be, we don't want to read about global warming or political-environmental issues
And if/when we ever go on a website devoted to latest news concerning movies and television, we absolutely do Not want to see headline after headline of one 4th tier celeb after another shitting on Trump!
Think of it like a house with no walls or barriers so the parents bedroom, the kids room and bathroom are all borderless. Kids can watch their parents do the deed, parents can peek over at kids trying to with themselves and a magazine & the results of the recent visit to the potty can be smelled everywhere
Pretty disgusting, yes?
That's how news and information presention is today and why do many like us feel so much needless tension.
Its just there are few to no walls or gates to keep the barbarians at bay
Even Fox News does it and its the only cable news outlet we can stand..
They care more about entertaining and keeping eyeballs glued than covering real news with a true analytical perspective because after all, it is a ratings driven business.
I had a debate with a colleague yesterday about people in general..
She believed people are just collectively stupid.. always have been and always will, then made points which did make sense
But I disagreed with her..
Rather, they are intentionally and purposefully misinformed and distracted by entities who control the mechanisms to which we get information and how as children we learn to process info..
Call it the 'System' or the 'Man' or the 'Matrix'.. It really does exist
It is not about controlling people to certain points of view as much as molding people to really have no point of view; just a mass of walking-talking contradictions who do not have the time or energy to really understand anything presented in a dull manner.
A distracted, disconnected mass of people is an easily manipulated one
Meanwhile Democrats think Republicans, especially those in fly-over Red State America are deplorable and backwoods hicks, and Republicans think Democrats are sinfully evil, rotten never-content bastards & bitches..
Few to none really make the effort to know one another and talk about points of view differences.. The liberals have their special websites, the conservatives have theirs and everyone is happy yet bitter..
But the one silver lining in all this and it is a big one... Just imagine all the sickness to be experienced had that rancid parasite Hillary won
So if stupid speeches and tweets from twits is what we must all deal with in order to have a President who actually wants to make America a better place for us all, then we guess, so be it..
