Kate at One More Thing is doing a weekly carnival of sorts, choosing a topic for other bloggers to write about. This week’s topic is “Politics”.
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.” Groucho Marx
I resent every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every year of my life that involves reading about, hearing about, thinking about and worrying about politics.
I can’t stand world politics, national politics, state politics, county politics, city politics, school politics, work politics, playground politics, family politics nor relationship politics.
I would be an irresponsible human to put my head in the sand. So I read, listen, think and worry about world politics, national politics, state politics, county politics, city politics, school politics, work politics, playground politics, family politics and relationship politics in varying degrees.
Politics are like hemorrhoids. They’re there. Nothing I can do about that. I could get it removed, but the doctor says it would likely grow back and be even more of a nuisance than before. So, I avoid it as much as possible. But every once in awhile they get inflamed and I have to deal with them – the biggest possible pain in my ass.
