Sick of it

I'm getting to the point where I can't read the news anymore. I look at headlines on Twitter and I don't want to click because it just makes me crazy:

Immigration activists protest AZ law, Napolitano at ceremony

F16s intercept ultralight aircraft near Mexican border in AZ

MCSO: Dozens arrested after cockfighting event raided

Border Patrol seizes 633 lbs. of pot in Arizona desert

Family of slain Hispanic man blames Arizona's immigration law

Police find 7 bodies near US-Mexico border

UN rights experts criticize Arizona's immigration law

L.A. approves Arizona boycott over immigration law

3 Salvadoran children rescued, held hostage in Phoenix area  (If you click on no other link, click on this one.  It's an AP article about how the three kids were held hostage by coyotes who smuggled them in and then demanded more money from their parents after the kids had been brought into the US.  That's what they do.  They leave the people they smuggled into the US in houses with no AC, plumbing, phones, shoes.  [The AC matters when it's the middle of the desert.]  They demand more money and people have been beaten, raped, and died in those drop houses.  This is happening in my backyard.)

And now the Feds are apologizing to China?
[Assistant Secretary of State Michael] Posner said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights and rule of law, officials also discussed Chinese complaints about problems with U.S. human rights, which have included crime, poverty, homelessness and racial discrimination.

He said U.S. officials did not whitewash the American record and in fact raised on its [sic] own a new immigration law in Arizona that requires police to ask about a person's immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally.
Fine, I'm a racist hater.  I'm going to go watch American Idol and be like all the other lemmings in America who can't be bothered.  When you care, it makes you crazy, and I don't have a lot of sanity left to spare.

You win.
