I was watching the news this morning, as I do every morning. I had our local all news all the time channel on, mostly because they put the weather on every ten minutes and for me that is the most important thing to see on the morning news. Come on I need to know how to dress and we know it's going to change from day to day so I need the up to date weather forecast.
This tends to be my one time watch the news on a given day.... they don't have news on Nick Jr., Disney or PBS kids and at this time that is pretty much all we see during the day when the tv is on. As the boys get older we will be able to watch the news in the morning, but for now I think I'll stick to kid friendly shows.
I often shake my head while watching the news. I don't understand where logic is anymore. This morning I heard them talking about the price of gas. Did you know it was on the rise again... no shock I know! The news reporter said that they suspect that the price of gas is on the rise again because... They just came out with the unemployment numbers from last month and they are are down. So therefore they are speculating that more people will buy gas so the price is going up. Ummmm.... Ummm... so more people got jobs last month (or more specifically more people went off unemployment that doesn't necessarily mean they all got jobs), so this coming month more people are going to buy gas.... Is anyone else lost?
I find that I often think like this when watching the news. Last week a couple had their infant child taken by a person impersonating someone from DCF. Hmmm if I was in the real DCF I'd start investigating this couple. If someone came to me from DCF or not and tried to take my boys I'd put up a major fight because there is NO reason for them to be taken. So if I gave my child to someone thinking they were from DCF, then there must be a reason that I'd think that DCF would take my child. Yet, they didn't say that DCF was investigating the family.
Is it just me or does anyone else out there say... hey wait that isn't logical when they watch the news? Did we some how lose logic in this technical age? I mean I know government hasn't always been completely logical, but has everyone lost the concept of logic?
