I am watching Don Lemon on CNN. They are talking to Republican talking heads.

If this is what they think Republican voters are I am so glad that I have NOTHING to do with the GOP.

Does the media even begin to understand that for most conservatives, Obama is yesterday’s news? We got it! I believe we are MUCH more offended by Boehner and McConnell and the rest of the GOP establishment.

We expect to disagree with the progressive left. But we have been betrayed and lied to by “our own.”

Over that, I, for one, am D O N E with all of them. We are never going to fix our nation by starting with D.C.

Maybe it is because I just spent the day in media and politician hell, but I really am so frustrated by everyone who just keeps bringing it back to what politician X or Y did.

I just saw my appearance on CNN. I recorded it earlier today. They edited the heart out of it. I wish they would have left the real conversation – the meaningful conversation Don and I had.

I am done with this. If I can’t fix my own radio show and get my own show to begin to take action of healing, help and decency then I need to go away myself.

I don’t know how much more I can do and fail.

This isn’t about anyone else but me. Maybe I need to leave the media and public life and just walk the walk in my own neighborhood and life.

Each of us are going to be held responsible for our own actions and our friends, family and everything that is meaningful is on fire and we are engaging in a clown show or an angry venting.

Both are important, but I just can’t do it anymore.

Ben Franklin said around 1773 that he could no longer be with friends anymore. Because most failed to understand the gravity of what was really happening in the world.

He felt almost dirty by talking about normal things. I feel the same way.

God is going to make me account for every moment of air-time, every word and every action I chose to put my effort behind.
