Imitations of Life from Couch-Potato Central

I was watching the news yesterday... I actually burst into laughter during the report of the air Egypt crash as it jumped from a fire started in the control room into a volley of the word terrorism being insert into sentences where it didn't fit. It was so blatant and bad that my girlfriend even made mention of it. "Why does everything have to be terrorists?" She asked. The only answer I could think of was that negligence doesn't evoke the proper response from people. Then we feel bad for the 200 families who lost loved ones at the behest of a corporation that no longer employs it's own staff in favour of 'lowest price', or is that 'value added', I get confused sometimes, contracting companies. 

Speaking of which, terrorists really are the value added outsourced contractors of CIA and other governmental agencies meant to preserve national security in some country anyway, so I suppose it's all tomàto, tomáto anyhow.

The news then went on to talk at great length about Donald Trump despite being 'Canadian news'... not sure why that needs ten minutes of rambling when we aren't voting for chump nor hilarity in this country.

Meanwhile there's been little mention of the fact that they've started tearing down part of a long delayed bridge to nowhere in the local news.

It really is the news they need us to know.

I'm not sure what I expected by turning on that abomination which teleports pixels and sound from a studio to my living room, which, contrary it it's name, isn't where much living actually takes place.

I know there is also some inane talk of legalizing using whichever bathroom tickles your fancy

Maybe we can simply outlaw bathrooms outright for being sexist and derogatory... Watch your step, the gender-neutral non-race specific homosapien (who am I calling a homo? Let's just say sapien now) who walked there two minutes ago ate at Chilli's last night. This is known to get slippery, like the slope we avalanching down as a society.

No signs of intelligent, sentient life here.

In the real world, were you to attempt to look away from the magic box, you might find out why George Soros is being missed in the Panama papers leak. You might also find a group calling this PC transgender farce 'child abuse'.

But then, we don't live in a real world.
