October 18 2012. Obama losing in the polls. Nothing to worry about that a double shot of whiskey or a dose of angel dust wouldn’t cure. Nothing to look forward to but four years of rising taxes, lower income, recession, wars, corruption and human rights violations, and devalued quality of life.. Not that our personal happiness is a thing of any importance to anyone but ourselves, but face it at the end of four years there isn’t one of us (besides Mitt Romney) who doesn’t face the probability they will be less happy than they are today. Everyone knows the world doesn’t belong to them, it belongs to that mythical quantity called the majority, which includes everyone else, but not them.

If the future looks bleak and whiskey and angel dust are not to your liking, I have a suggestion. Turn off the news channel. Throw away your newspaper. I know from experience that no news is good news. Immerse yourself instead in things that interest you. Things you love. Watch re-runs. Listen to oldies. Concentrate on daily living. Without the hew and cry of catastrophizing news anchors, it becomes ever the more sweet. Get into the only true reality, the one that daily news casts cannot reach. I guarantee that in four years time, it will not have changed significantly, and you’ll be happier for it.
