Addicts LOVE those who allow them to STAY IN THEIR ADDICTION
How many of you have ever dealt with an addict? Been friends with one? Perhaps, you may have an addiction, and have yet to realize the signs of being an addict.
Sooner or later, one gets tired of the addict saying “I’ll quit tomorrow” or “I can change” or “I’ll get help” and never does, so we tell the addict to get out of our faces until he/she actually deals with their addiction.
Hell, the A&E channel and the Discovery channel has shows devoted to people in addictions and the family members they hurt with their addiction until those family members tell them their crutch is being removed, and either they get help or crash and burn. THEIR CHOICE.
However, this blog post is not going to be about addicts. Not literally, but as a metaphor.
I responded in the Open Thread section to a comment from SouthernGal2 – who gets the hat tip for inspiring me to take my response and front page it. Some background – SouthernGal2 commented that all the wingnuttia we’ve been seeing on Fox News (aka “Fake Noise”) is the “breakdown” of the news organization.
I responded this way:
I think it’s more accurate that Fake Noise is Overdosing on it’s own bullshyt and like a junkie, they’re still trying to get the euphoric high they got when they first went bigot.
The more bigotry they inject into being a news organization, the less effective the “hit” is. Now it looks like they need a 12-step rehab to be taken seriously again as a news organization.
Sadly, CNN or MSNBC didn’t look at the downward spiral that Fake Noise is one, and likewise, they will soon Overdose on their own bullshyt as well.
Just like the Klan wore out their welcome with too much bullshyt (blowing up churches with four little Black girls in Sunday School; yet they all considered themselves “Christians”), the media propagandists at Fake Noise are wearing out their welcome as many more of their viewers get their cable turned off because they’re unemployed, haven’t received UI benefit checks in over six weeks, and can’t pay the cable bill to continue watching Fake Noise spew their shyt.
Being broke will wake ANYONE UP, even the sheeple that get their news from Fake Noise.
