Because its a damn ridiculous shit show. That's the short answer. It's getting more and more divided every day. It's almost worse than...you know what check that, it's worse than high school drama and making a go for being worse than middle school drama. We don't cover politics because it is a never-ending he said, she said game of who can find the most skeletons in each other's closets.And skeletons will always be found. Why? Because people f*** up all the time. We've f***ed up, you've f***ed up. Everyone f***s up. It's just how the world and how people are. Don't get us wrong, there are tons of stories and things we could cover, but in all honesty, with how people treat each other in the political game, it's just something we'd rather steer clear of. There are no more statesmen, only politicians who care about two things. Getting elected and getting re-elected.Now we know, we know, we sound cynical as all hell, but when was the last time that a politician prompted a plan that everyone in the country was like "Hey this is a really great idea."...take all the time you need...we'll wait... (imagine the Final Jeopardy song playing)...you can't think of anything, can you? Right? Because everyone is so divided and angry at the other side, there hasn't been a consensus in Kung Fu Panda knows how long.Plus, it gets away from what we're trying to do here. We're here to say that whoever you are if you live in this country and you love this country, that we can at least be on the same page with each other there.Differences make us diverse and make us grow and challenge ourselves as a society and as individuals. We don't cover politics because, at the end of the day, all we care about is our fellow Americans. We care enough to follow it in our personal lives, but here, we're trying to do something much bigger, and that is to remind everyone to have pride in themselves, pride in their country and pride in the military/first responders.That's not too difficult a goal to shoot for, is it?
