Turn Them Off!

Remember these?

FCC Chairman Newton N. Minow, May 9, 1961:

“When television is good, nothing — not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers — nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite each of you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there for a day without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland.”

Remember when we were young and there were only three stations to watch, and they all went off the air at midnight? Now we have hundreds of channels, and they are on the air 24/7/365 and almost all of them suck.

We shoulda oughta listened to Howard Beale:

The more things change, the more they remain the same. Is it just me or does Peter Finch look a lot like Donald Trump?

A Lie is Born


Check this out from one of Hillary’s taint-licking fanboiz:

Petey isn’t stupid. He knows this isn’t true. He’s just helping to build upon two of the Democrat’s favorite narratives: Republicans are racists who cheat in elections.

He publishes these lies and they are quickly debunked. But that won’t stop other Democrats from repeating his lies (without mentioning the debunkings.) Years from now they will still be repeating the lies.

They aren’t trying to recruit new Democrats, they are just shoring up the Democrat base. Does it work? Just ask a Democrat who really won Florida in 2000.

Petey’s lies are similar to the fake miracles that some religious figures use to scam their followers out of money.

Where is MY Press Pass?


Is it Friday the 13th?

For those of you who didn’t take out lots of $$$ in student loans for law school, “5th Amendment grounds” means “due process.” Don’t worry, this isn’t over. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

What a crock of shit. Where is my press pass? The Constitution says I am entitled to one.

WHERE IS MY PRESS PASS???

There is actually a lot to unpack in this case. In addition to an appeal, the White House has lots of options. This was a TRO hearing, but there will still be a contested hearing unless the White House drops the issue. But they can also institute a new set of rules for anyone wanting a press pass, including all the current pass holders. IOW – they can (and should) create a process for issuing and revoking passes so that they can give Acosta due process the next time he acts out during a presser.

Meanwhile, in other news, I seem to have my internet service restored. We’ll see how it goes.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.

Ask Not For Whom The Fat Lady Sings

If you watched the national news on television you might get the impression that the entire state of California is burning to the ground. But if you watched our local news shows you’d know that your impression is correct. It’s just a biblical thing. Apparently, God has passed judgment on the former Golden State. The fat lady has sung.

Here’s a bit of local news:

A Democrat has all but officially won what’s considered one of the most important local races this election, as Republican Rob Poythress on Saturday conceded to Democrat Anna Caballero in the race for the Senate District 12 seat.

With an acknowledgment that there are still votes left to count — and implying most of those votes could likely favor his opponent and flip the red seat — Poythress took to Facebook to let his supporters know, “It’s evident Anna Caballero has won the election and I would like to congratulate her.”

Caballero issued a statement later Saturday, thanking her volunteers and supporters. “The outcome tells me the message and vision of our campaign was the right one for rural California and the district’s voters,” she said.

“I will work hard to make sure that the needs and interests of rural California on health care access, education, clean water and clean air, affordable housing, and agricultural production are taken seriously by the legislators and politicians in Sacramento, most of whom represent big cities.”

A former Assemblywoman, Caballero led the race with 52 percent of the vote to Poythress’ 47 percent, according to the Secretary of State.

Once her victory is sealed, Caballero would give Democrats in the state Legislature a supermajority in both houses, just as the state also elected Democrat Gavin Newsom as governor.

With a supermajority, Democrats would have the power to override vetoes without Republican votes.

The handful of Republicans in Sacramento have the easiest jobs in the world the next couple of years. They don’t even need to show up for work. Best of all, when California breaks off and falls into the ocean nobody can blame the GOP.

And don’t blame me, cuz I voted for Poythress. Blame Mom, cuz she voted for Caballero.

So if you ever wondered what it would be like to live under total Democrat dominion and control, this is what it looks like:

Welcome to Paradise!
