Upon waking

Daylight conspires to piss me off
Daylight spotlights angry racists
Daylight conspires to make me ill
Daylight brings Trump T. V. my way,
Daylight conspires to bring me down
Daylight conspires with delusion
Daylight means conspiracy and dreams
reported as fact; daylight brings depression

Craig Davison

Yeah, I know how you feel. Of course, I don't watch TV and don't miss it. I listen to ABC radio, Australian Broadcasting Commision, not your bunch, which is a non-commercial public broadcast. Quite liberal and left-wing, who exist on ever dwindling funding, as the Liberal (they are conservatives, but call themselves the Liberal party) government does not like criticism.
I don't like hearing what is going on in the world anymore and listen to ABC Classic FM most of the time. ABC Radio National (6.00 - 9.00 a.m.) is good for news, arts, religion, philosophy etc.
but most of the idiots in this one-horse town watch commercial TV and are thus ill-informed and hence Fascist pig-dogs who believe the lies.
I've studied Understanding Financial Crises through online university (Uppsala University, Sweden) and recession and economic depressions inevitably lead to reactionary politics. This one will last a while and with the internet, conspiracy theories will abound as will fake news. I'm glad I am a recluse. I don't have to listen to the crap anymore.
All the best,

I hear you, Craig, when did some people become fools who believe the most idiotic conspiracy Elvis shot Kennedy, Hillary Clinton runs a child-sex ring out of a pizza parlor, President Obama's a secret Muslim who'll declare Sharia Law bullshit? I've lost trust in my some of my fellow citizens judgement.
