Bill Forster is a former TSA agent turned libertarian evangelist whose comic strip Homeland Security Theater is one I’ve been subscribed to on RSS for a while (click his sponsors or something, he’s awesome).
Forster made me spew coffee all over my keyboard with this gem:
But his commentary really just hits the nail on the head as far as how failtastic television oligarchy’s political coverage has been so far:
I get a lot of Ron Paul supporters to this site. In fact, I get a lot of Ron Paul supporters on Facebook too. It seems everywhere on the internet I see folks supporting Ron Paul. Then I turn on the TV and it’s all about Romney.
I never used to be very political. To quote one of my heroes Alice Cooper, “I don’t care. When my parents would start talking politics, I would go in my room and put on The Rolling Stones or The Who on as long as I could to avoid politics”. But running this website has put me in touch with a lot of people, from conservatives to liberals, Republicans to Democrats, from the super smart to the super crazy. And I’ve learn one thing from them… the government scares the living hell out of me! So now I am starting to pay attention.
Agreed. I’d actually rather listen to bad techno glitch pop remixes of global tribal throat songs in foreign languages — than hear and see or see more political pandering, posturing and preening by Romney and Obama. And they aren’t our only options, no matter how often a few blathering idiots blather it.
Update: I meant to say I agreed on everything, except the being scared of government part. It’s part of my medical condition.
