Talking about politics and world events is a lot like handling a ticking time bomb. You don't know what the hell you're doing and there's a high probability that you'll get blown to bits. Unless you're an ardent political activist or politician, it's best not to talk about something you know nothing about. Even our elected officials reek of ignorance, bigotry, and overall stupidity. With that being said, I respect any piece of shit who dares speak their mind, unless their opinion is stupid.


If you're the type of person that reads the news everyday, stop. Come up for air every once in a while. Forming opinions on politics and world events is like rooting for a sports team. You contribute nothing to the situation. Engaging in a political discussion will lead to only two situations. You'll either end up agreeing on everything and the conversation will turn into a never ending circle jerk session or you'll make a new enemy for life.

The 24-hour news cycle makes it possible for people to satiate their debilitating TV addiction along with their sadism. Watching the news is a socially acceptable form of self-harm. Go to any dentist office, hospital, or other places where people are suffering and you'll see a these news network channel buzzing endlessly on TV. It's the epitome of adding insult to injury.

If you can, avoid talking about politics and world events at all costs. Don't become the poor man's version of a TV political commentator. Leave that to the professionals, and by professionals I mean those idiots on TV, that spew misinformed opinions to millions of impressionable people. These commentators are failed comedians who turned to the pathetic life of discussing non-issues while making tons of money. 

You're probably asking yourself, "But how will I stay informed if I never read the news?" People feel important and smart when they fill you in on something you don't know. It's like having hundreds of interns who want to inflate their egos under the guise of wanting you to be up-to-date with world events. Don't delude yourself into thinking you know anything about anything.  Not everyone can be me.
