    Default Everything in life now has to be politicized, why?

    It's annoying, why can't I watch a good fun TV comedy without someone starting a political debate about it. All this does is ruin the show. Why do people allow themselves to think too deeply about things and just enjoy something they like. Sure there are good and bad things in life and it's up to our discretion to match what we watch with our beliefs. However everything now has to have some type of political undertone. Seriously who cares? I enjoyed life when people cared less about stuff like this.

    Streaming is your friend.

    Seriously, try one of the streaming offerings, (Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, whatever), and find comedies from the last decade or the last century. Sure, sometimes they reference stuff too, but I, at best, barely get the reference now. (Who was the linebacker the Pats drafted first in 1982? We just started watching Cheers again, and I'm chuckling that Tom Brady was in diapers back then. lol)

    Everything in life has to be criticized, politically or otherwise. I was reading a review for a game I was thinking about picking up off gog.com and the reviewer kept going on and on (and on and on and on) about what the developers should have done here and should have done there and they really should have done this with the ending and... Bleh.

    I HAVE GOOGLE AND I KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT EVERYTHING SO NOW I'M AN EXPERT! AND MY ALL CAPS MAKES ME EVEN MORE EXPERTER!

    Basically it's a lot easier to criticize things than to use your brain, so a lot of people criticize.

    I totally agree! It's gotten ridiculous.

    Everything in life now has to be politicized, why?
    Yeah, it would be GREAT if the issues important to running our country were *more* politicized and more scrutinized. And the social issues were left largely to social media. Instead we have whole segments of voters who vote for a particular candidate because of the candidate's stance with regard to a given social issue. They vote with total disregard for whether that candidate is qualified to help run our government. As a result the halls of our government are lined with a bunch of corrupt bozos, most of whom are not qualified to run a Kentucky Fried Chicken. This is part of the reason our nation is rapidly going to hell in a handbasket. /steps down of soapbox. Pours coffee.

    I think this is the whole essence. It is imperative that the Liberal agenda of making "MAN'S law" preeminent, replaces God's law in every facet of life.
