What I will not write about today



Sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them. Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health.

See what I mean? So who’s up for a couple of Margs or a trough of wine?

One more reason to "unlike" Mark Zuckerberg: He's fundraising for Chris Christie



Facebook has become more and more user-unfriendly and glitches so often that it's become the norm rather than the exception. The only reason I still have an account there is because of our Political Carnival page. We post our blog content there, as many of you know, and a lot of our readers find out about TPC because of Facebook and then share our posts with friends who share our post with friends who...

Which is exactly why Facebook is so popular. All that sharing.

They also share private information, but that's another rant for another day.

Did I mention I hate Facebook?

Well now I "unlike" its owner even more.

(CNN) – Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will host a fundraiser for New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie's re-election bid, a Christie finance source confirmed Thursday.

The event will take place February 13 at the young billionaire's home in Palo Alto, California. A Facebook spokeswoman said Zuckerberg appreciates education reform efforts made in New Jersey.

And to those Dems who still think Christie is going all liberal on us because he did one or two things you admire, please read Think for yourself. Ask questions. Do your homework.
