I find it interesting how we are encouraged to hate our opponents.
Chiefs hate Raiders and Broncos, or as they say “There’s no love between them.”
MU and KU.
Royals. Oh well, nobody hates the Royals anymore.
Even politicians put down their opponents during elections. Then they ask us to forget all that hate talk and want us to work together to make things better.
I don’t get it. As I get older, I can’t turn my emotions on and off like that anymore.
Sports is one thing, but politics can have a lasting effect on the nation.
I also find it disturbing that we pay athletes, singers and actors millions and millions of dollars to entertain us, but we argue about teachers’ pay. Entertainment is just that: It serves no purpose but to entertain. Teachers will affect our country’s future.
Which is more important, to be entertained for three or four hours or our children?
Has the world become so stressful that we have to vent our anger and hate through “entertainment” at the cost of our future?
