2015 A Year Of Fear

When I think about the past year, I think about John Lennon's words, that society is being run by insane people with insane objectives. To think that basically nothing has changed since then, except John Lennon is dead, killed by someone who was insane. Oh the irony.
It's been a year of fear.
ISIS, ISIS, ISIS! We need a war and it looks like ISIS will provide the excuse and one politician has a plan to "take back the internet" I guess now that ISIS has it?
We started the year with the Charlie Hebdo attack, if that wasn't crazy enough we ended it with the attacks in Paris.
Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland and the list goes on of scared cops shooting African Americans, birthing the BlackLivesMatter movement. Then we have this;
This is just the one who was caught, which begs the question, how many more like him are out there?
Finally on June 27th, the Supreme Court came through with the Marriage Equality Act, suddenly, there's a "war on faith" be afraid, be very afraid, basically of Ted Cruz. That dude is scary. Scarier than him; that would be Chris Christie, who doesn't stand a chance against the Trump brand and his only means now of getting elected is using guilt to goad people into voting for him. It's game over for Jeb! He's a zombie politician. Makes no sense to elect another Bush, unless of course you want another war. All of these candidates are so bad, that people I know actually want to vote for Trump! What's even better will be a debate between Hillary and Trump. That is going to be hilarious.
Here in the Northeast we have "freakishly" warm weather, which is fine with me. I guess we're supposed to be afraid of climate change, but I'll take this over snow any day. Don't look now but Winter Storm Goliath is on it's way so everyone get your milk, bread and eggs. Stay tuned for update after update of chaos and mayhem. brought to you by the weather or terrorists or both. Which is why I don't have TV any more. It's a fear medium. I can't completely avoid Fox News because it's on in restaurants and bars and it's always on where I work, they believe it all, everything they see on TV they think is true. There's no difference between Fox and CNN, it's all the same ISIS story all the time.
 It's been about four years since I've had cable and Comcast representatives keep knocking at my door trying to convince me to take them back, like an ex-boyfriend who refuses to just go away. My life has improved because I don't have fear porn constantly bombarding me. 2015 was a good year, despite all the bad news, don't believe everything you see.
