Why I Don't Watch Network News

So Paula wanted to catch the news on Channel 7 a few minutes ago.  (Ugh.)

We turned to channel 7.  "CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley."

I watched for maybe fifteen minutes before I got up and walked out of the room in disgust.

No, Pelley wasn't going after Newt (or G.W. Bush) (Surprise).

He was feeding us what someone in New York City considers "news."

Here's what the show featured this evening:

1) A story about Alzheimers.

2) A story about obesity.

3) A story (I didn't stick around to watch) about some failing city with a failing school system.

The problem?

If I wanted to watch "CBS Evening Stories With Scott Pelley," I would have sought it out.

Jesus, God, is it too much to ask for news on the news?

Memo To Bob Goodlatte (3)

Congressman Goodlatte, if, as you say, the bill you're sponsoring in the House  - the "Stop Online Piracy Act" - is being misconstrued by those of us out here in the hinterlands who aren't as smart as you, why is it the internet is going dark in protest?

Bob.  Let's be honest.  If you were dictator, then I might agree with you that your legislation - because you say so and you carry the big stick - won't have a stifling effect on the freedom of expression that so wonderfully flows on the internet.  Because you could then oversee its implementation.  But you're a committee chairman, not Il Duce.  If the Democrat-controlled-Senate got a hold of it, and then Obama the Socialist got his controlling mitts on it, We the People would forever be subjugated.

So listen to those of us who harbor no ill will toward you and take heed.  SOPA is bad legislation.  Give it up.

As Only Newt Can Say It

Here he is at the South Carolina debate taking no prisoners.

Simply marvelous.


As long as we the stupid and unwashed are not allowed to participate, the Left in this country is big on democracy.

That's the twisted worldview of those who would have you believe they represent "the 99%."

Or, to put it another way:
Mark Levin: You Cannot Have This EPA and a Constitution
By Terence P. Jeffrey

(CNSNews.com) - Mark Levin says America cannot at the same time have a Constitution and an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that is doing what the EPA is doing today.

Levin made the observation in an interview with CNSNews.com about his new book, “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America.”

Modern American liberals, who are Utopias [sic], Levin said, aim to erode the separation of powers built into the U.S. Constitution so that a “relative handful of masterminds” can tell everybody else what to do.

“This erosion has been going on for about a hundred years,” said Levin. “It’s at a much faster pace right now and there’s a reason for this--because you can’t have constitutionalism and utopianism.” [link]
In other words, Leftists intend to create the perfect world and will kill or enslave anyone and everyone who gets in their way.

Odd how they think that must play out.

But then "think" has never been their strong suit.


Just when you thought everyone in Hollywood was beyond redemption, along comes a man who makes you have to take it all back.

Mark Wahlberg:

So there's one exception. Mark Wahlberg.  The rest of Hollywood are all human waste.

Ah, Yes

Now I remember why the Republican Party would have nothing to do with Jon Huntsman.  He was one of those woefully gullible politicians who bought into the snake oil the climate scientists sold years ago:

ABC’s Karl Despairs GOP Has ‘Lost Only Candidate...Concerned About Climate Change’ 

If I were "Karl," I'd be wondering about the rational thought processes all those Democrats out there possess.  After all, they still believe in that nonsense.

This Is My Fear

I fear that Rick Santorum is right:

Tough new Santorum ad: Let’s face it, Romney = Obama

And four more years of Obama - or anyone like him - and we're finished.
