Tyler, TX (KETK) — For the first time in many years, I did not watch the State of the Union last night. It doesn't not matter who is president.
The State of the Union-- like the political conventions-- have just become a pep rally for the team in power. While the president talks, the TV director shows the opposite party glowering. I can still remember the Senator Hillary Clinton eye rolls.
Then, the press is all agog that Marco Rubio needed a drink of water. He did look like he was making a hostage tape when he maintained eye camera contact while reaching for the water, but forget what he said, I only was hearing the jokes.
This is what we've become--- the political Kardashians.
A new Rasmussen poll out today: 38% of Likely U.S. Voters say the country is heading in the right direction. That's horrible. We're not hearing about that. We're hearing the president wants a higher minimum wage.
Another politician spending business peoples money with no thought of what it may do to the business owners or the workers.
There is a good chance that mandate will mean a lot of minimum wage folks would be laid off. But as long as we get the TV show and the pundits can wag their tongues. It's all accepted now.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
