It's true. Both John and I have have addictive tendencies. In reality, I think everyone has them, just that some have them badly and some not so badly. Some pick bad things to be addicted to, some understand and make good efforts guide themselves.
So, in order to fulfill my addictive tendencies, and not be useless to my faith, family, or society, I do things like listen to congressional hearings on youtube while doing chores or paper work.
And talk radio.
And I discovered podcasts!!!
OK. I shouldn't pluralize it. I listen to 2 and a half podcast.
But my favorite one is Ben Shapiro.
I found this guy before the elections and couldn't help but be impressed. I feel like I finally found a soul that gets it!
I missed listening to his stuff during vacation. NOT because he isn't on my podcast app and ready to go, but more along this lines of, WHO HAD THE TIME?!?!?! With all those grand babies to hold and hug and rock and sing to and stare at and kiss?!?!? Seriously. Ben who?
I can get lost in looking a them. For along time. And they distract me in all the right ways.
And if it wasn't grand babies...hello? Daughters? Sky watching to do. Talks to have. Movies to watch. Jokes to share. Life to experience.
Back to Ben.
Welcome to one of my addictions. This guy is so smart AND has common sense. A very unusual combination. One can almost forgive that he graduated from UCLA. Or at the very least, forget. I was listening to the podcast during morning chores and shower today.
I have to share.
It got me thinking. The first past of the podcast was about men and women. And all I can say is THANK YOU.
SHEESH. The level of ignorance and willful willing sheeple-ness. ( I know. That's not a real word. Work with me. I have things to do, places to go, people to see. No time to find the perfect word.)
I know liberals hate him. I think he came up with the quote, 'facts don't care about your feeling'. Truth. Not that we need to be cold hearted, but lets get to the facts.
As I told my youngest son, 'son, you have addictive tendencies, like most of America. But being 1/2 Irish, they are pretty powerful. Pick your addictions. You can fight and overcome some. But you can't over come it all. Be wise. Be holy. Be real.
Now, off to catch up on my podcasts! Car rides are the best for listening!!!!
