    No politics here just some others who I can't get rid of every time I turn on the TV .....

    Michael Strahan: How many different commercials can one man do?
    Dr. Phil: Just what are his credentials anyway?
    Anyone named Kardashian
    All contestants on The Price Is Right
    Al Sharpton: No explanation necessary

    That's it for now. Who's on your list?

    The kind of person who says you're not a true sports fan if someone asks "Yankees or Mets?" and you say both.

    * Biased officials ... doesn't matter the sport. At least half of NFL, MLB and NBA games are determined by the officials.
    * Biased announcers.
    * Small-market disadvantage.
    * NCAA programs that obviously are bought and paid for (i.e., Nike University in Eugene).
    * Stupid television commercials, especially the 95% that make white men to look like bumbling idiots.
    * Politics. Period. A divided nation. People who care more about their party than what's good for America. I'll stop there. Except for ...
    * Rich people in government bitching about rich people in the other party.
    * Rich people who go on television and pander us to donate to some cause.
    * PETA and other animal groups who turn a blind eye when it comes to defending in utero human beings.
    * Idiot drivers (no turn signal; pull out in front, even where nobody is behind me; don't use headlights in rain/snow/fog/dusk; litter).
    * Working in dying industries (my first career was in mainframe computers).
    * Having to pay a MOTHERF***ING co-pay every time I set foot in a doctor's office.
    * Hurting and suffering, because I can't afford said MOTHERF***ING co-pay.
    * Going to the doctor, only to have tests run or a script written instead of actually finding the problem and fixing it.
    * Looking at newspapers that were written and designed by third-graders.
    * Horrible English language skills and spelling by otherwise intelligent Americans (especially in BOOKS).

    That's probably not all, but I'm out of breath.

    Sarah Palin
    John Cena not turning heel
    The NCAA
    Corrupt boxing organizations
    Corrupt politicians blaming the media for their foibles
    Camera shots of Jerry Jones
    Politicians using slogans instead of a real explanation
    Political media quoting said slogans

    There are others, but these were the first ones I thought of.
