High Cost of Living? Unnecessary Waste and Consumerism? Unnecessary Fuel Consumption?

One of the easiest solutions for all of the above, if not actually a panacea, is to cancel your newspaper subscriptions. Once one does that, fully 90% of the problems in one's life will disappear immediately. The sole function of today's newspapers, is to create problems even when they don't exist -- because they make a living exploiting them.

Politics doesn't necesarily have to be the biased partisanship it has become in their editorial pages and reporting now. In fact, what we should desire from our political leaders is that they more than anybody better, reperesent the interests of all the people -- and not just pandering to each special interest group.

Each day now, a thousand new blogs are created -- and a thousand people cancel their subscriptions to their home-delivered newspaper. We are soon coming into an era in which people will inform and communicate with each other directly -- rather than having to go through the media middleman -- who now mainly serves to control, distort and manipulate those transmissions. That might have been acceptable in a previous era -- but is the reason driving the growing popularity of the blogs and other forums in which people share information (intelligence) without the distortions of the media middleman.

In today's letter to the editors of the Star-Bulletin, they (naturally) publish a letter promoting the need for two rather one newspaper -- when obviously, the logical advance, is for no newspapers.

Ambitious young pols blog it out on the Net
Letters from lawyers are flying in a controversy pitting some of Montana's young and ambitious political operatives from both parties against each other.
Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and hip hop lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about hip hop lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite hip hop lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!

If the editors and columnists of the local newspapers want to be the governor or president, they have to run for the office. Just criticizing and insulting the president or governor, is not sufficient qualifications for the office -- nor proof of intelligent behavior.

Smart people don't go around calling everybody "Stupid" -- as proof of how smart they are. That's what stupid people think smart people do.
