    Once again, I have to report that television can expose the evilness or defectiveness of persons, such as a U.S. President or a U.S. Vice President, but, of course, television may not if the operators of stations or networks wish to keep hidden the evilness or defectiveness.  Did your favorite television newscast present what Vice President Joe Biden said in relation to putting blacks back in chains on Tuesday, August 14, 2012?  If the newscast did not carry it, then you can wonder about the quality of those who run the newscast.  On August 14, 2012, while in Danville, Virginia, Vice President Joe Biden said: "...They said it.  Every Republican voted for it.  Look at what they value.  Look at their budget and what they're proposing.  Romney wants to let...he said the first hundred days.  He's gonna let the big banks once again write their own rules.  Unchain Wall Street!  He's gonna put ya all back in chains...."  Besides lying about banks being able to write their own rules--banks have been heavily regulated for decades and have not written their own rules--Joe Biden pushed racist crap related to slavery, which, really, is in the history of the Democratic Party, as are segregation and the KKK (which famous-but-dead U.S. Senator Byrd, who was a Democrat, had ties to) and which is not in the history of the Republican Party.  Right now, the United States of America has a piece of crap of a man as the Vice President.

    Oh, if you have not figured it out yet, I tell you that you are reading another month edition of the Internet-only publication called, informally, T.H.A.T..

    It is a fact that Barack Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 removes at least (by the calculation of day) about $700-billion from the Medicare program, By the way, on Sunday, August 12, 2012, Howard Dean (a high-ranking Democrat and  a supporter of communism) was a guest on This Week with George Stephanopoulos and said: "...The problem is--Nobody believes it.  You can't convince people that a Democrat's gonna cut Medicare.  They don't believe that...."  Although the U.S. Congress controlled by the Democratic Party and Barack Obama (a Democrat and communist and worse) created the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2012, which does indeed cut billions from Medicare, Howard Dean still thought he could get away with saying in public on television that no one that supported the Democratic Party and Barack Obama would believe the truth, being so conditioned ( like a slave or robot) to never believe a Democrat would set up such a cut.  The quotation shows that Howard Dean believes many of his supporters--Democratic Party followers--are stupid people!

         Advertisement: In March 2009, a book called Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which had been written by Mark R. Levin, was published.  Through the book, Mark R. Levin talks about how tyranny has been creeping into the country, and he also talks about how the country has been changing from a representative republic, which has a constitution as a basis, to something, yet to be defined, and although Mark R. Levin says that it is the statist who is causing the change, especially those who are a part of the Democratic Party and in government jobs, I say that it is communists, socialists, would-be dictators, and Marxists, such as Barack Obama, who are making the changes, such as by discarding The U.S. Constitution.  I urge you to see and read Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, and pass it on to others, especially teenagers and young adults (and consider listening to The Mark Levin Show, the nationally syndicated radio show, on a regular basis).

    In the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I reported that I was purposely avoiding seeing the Summer Olympics, and one reason is that the Opening Ceremonies promoted the National Health Service in Great Britain as something that is good, though it is not, but I did see and did hear a portion of the Closing Ceremony while a friend was watching it, and she would not see much of it, turning it off, feeling it was a lot of flash and lights and no substance and was a "waste of time."  The portion that I sort of caught had, for one, George Michael, who sang; George Michael is that singer who several times was caught in gay bathroom scandals.  Why was George Michael on the bill, being a sexual deviant?  Annie Lennox, who is a big lesbian promoter, was on the show, and she was nothing worthwhile on the program.  Russell Brand--the always freaky-looking guy--sang, though not well.  And there was a presentation of a Pink Floyd tune of several decades ago, and it was a depressing presentation, which made me glad that I was not there.
    Later, I learned what remains of the musical group called Queen did a performance, and they showed the former lead singer of the group--Freddie Me theSummer Olympics special presentations of music and liberalism (socialism and communism) and such!

    On Monday, August 13, 2012, NBC-TV, which supports such communists as Barack Obama, ran the first episode of a new series entitled Stars Earn Stripes.  One of the hosts is U.S. General Wesley Clark (who is retired military man), and at the beginning of the episode, Wesley Clark proclaimed, in essence, his love for the United States of America.  In 2004, Wesley Clark was involved in running to be the next U.S. President--as a Democratic Party candidate--and Wesley Clark supported such highly left-wing persons for political offices in the past as John Kerry (currently a U.S. Senator) and Hillary Clinton (the current U.S. Secretary of State), both of whom are highly left-wing politicians, and Wesley Clark supported Barack Obama for U.S. President.  What you have in Wesley Clark is another piece of crap of a man on television!

    On June 24, 2012, HBO began to run a weekly series entitled The Newsroom, featuring Jeff Daniels, who claims to be a Michigan native and who operates the Purple Rose Theatre, Chelsea, Michigan.  On August 20, 2012, Jeff Daniels showed more of his bad nature by what he said during a radio interview with Frank Beckmann on The Frank Beckmann Show (of WJR-AM).  It does not take much time for a man to show his nature and evilness, and it showed in Jeff Daniels--who supports the idea that good men and women should compromise with communists and such, who like to enslave other persons--when Jeff Daniels said about the "Tea Party" and "Tea Party"-type individuals with respect to politics today: "...That's where most of the craziness is coming from, ah, is the Tea Party and, and what they're doing to the government and what their yanking Joe, John Boehner back by the collar, gonin' get out of the White House, stop tryin' to work out a grand bargain with Obama...." and "...And, dah, but what the, what's happening is the Tea Party seems to be hijacking the Republican Party...."  I say that, if the Tea Party does not get control of the Republican Party, then the country will end up with a Democratic Party (a communist party) and a wishy-washy Republican Party that is made up of people who will not fight back against a communist party, and also the country will be transformed in short order in to a dictatorship (headed by one man who would be called a "President" and the Democratic Party).  Jeff Daniels is just another rotten man who gets to be on television.  By the way, when I heard the interview, Jeff Daniels sounded--in voice tone--much like Geoffrey Fieger, a man who was one topic of a previous edition of T.H.A.T.--T.H.A.T. #99, which can be reached by using this T.H.A.T. #99 link.  [To learn about another piece of crap of a man in Michigan, you are urged to see my document entitled Michigan Travel Tips #101, which can be reached by using this Travel #101 link.]

    Announcement for the novice again: To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, go to Fox News Channel, WorldNetDaily.com, "The Drudge Report," and CNS News (which is on the Internet and which was launched on June 16, 1998), since the entities do not blindly support Barack Obama, as do CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV (to learn about bad journalism, you might tune in to CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV from time to time to see how they differ from the Fox News Channel and those mentioned with it in presenting political stories and events, and you should discover CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV avoid covering things that make Barack Obama look bad or show his true nature, which could harm you).  If you are unclear of my intentions, I say in different words that you should boycott CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV and hope they lose more ratings and advertising revenues, since they are expendable, and it is time for you to find the guts to be mean and heartless and cancel them--since they are hurting you.

    In essence, Fareed Zakaria, who has worked at CNN for quite a while, is a supporter and pusher of communism.  Did you see, such as through an article in at least the Detroit Free Press for August 13, 2012 (Hammerstein, B.J.  "NAMES+FACES."  Detroit Free Press, 13 August 2012, p. 2C.), that Fareed Zakaria plagiarized written work of Jill Lepore in an article he did for Time?  Because of the scandal, Fareed Zakaria sort of got punished by CNN, which did not run his program on Sunday, August 12, 2012, as usual, and Time put Fareed Zakaria on hiatus for a few weeks.  I say in jest--"Fareed Zakaria is another one of those upstanding guys--upstanding communist guys--on American television."

    On Sunday, August 26, 2012, Mitt Romney was a guest on Fox News Sunday.  Mitt Romney happened to say at one point, responding to a question about the Barack Obama's claim that the Democrats offer more choices and support related to abortion, rape, women's health, et cetera: "...Well, first of all, with regards to women's health care, look I'm the guy that was able to get health care for all the women and men in my state [Massachusetts].  Ah, there's plenty about at the federal level--we actually did something, and we did it without cutting Medicare and without raising taxes...."  In addition, Mitt Romney said in relation to "Romney-care"--"...I'm very proud with what we did and the fact that we helped women and men and children in our state.  And, number two, and we did it without cutting Medicare, which obviously affects a lot of women...."  Both comments show a defect in Mitt Romney, a defect related to health care for individuals; it is bad for a state to completely control the health-care system in a state, as it would be for the federal government to have complete control on the health-care system in the country and be the only source for health care in the country.  Yet, Mitt Romney promoted that he is proud for having to sign into law a government controlled health-care system for a state (in this case Massachusetts).  Despite a defect in thinking shown in Mitt Romney through his spoken statements, I say that Mitt Romney must win over Barack Obama in the upcoming election, because Barack Obama is a highly defective man and an evil man, and a good example of proof is a statement that Barack Obama (as a state senator in Illinois) made in public in 2002 in relation to killing a baby who ends up alive after having been tied to a late-term abortion: "...But I just want to be clear, ah, because I think this was the source of the objections of the medical society.  Ah, eh, eh, as I understand it, this puts the burden on the attending physician, ah, who has determined since they were performing this procedure that in fact this is a non-viable fetus, ah, that, ah, if that, ah, fetus or child--however way you want to describe it is now, ah, outside the mother's body, ah, and the doctor continues to think that it's not viable but, um, there's let's say movement or some, ah, indication that in fact, um, they're not just coming out, ah, limp and, ah, dead, that in fact they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that, ah, um, this is not a live child...."  Besides noticing how sloppily Barack Obama spoke to try to make a point, notice Barack Obama treats a baby--in essence, a delivered baby--as not much more than a sack of potatoes, and he showed his nature--what he thinks of other persons.  You have through the statement from Barack Obama, which was probably not shown on your favorite television newscast, an example that shows off the evil and cold nature of Barack Obama, not a nice man.

    Let me show even more bad men and evil men who are regularly shown on television.  On Tuesday, August 28, 2012, Juan Williams (commenting on Mitt's Romney's wife's speech) said on the Fox News Channel: "...Mitt Romney's wife, Ann Romney, on the other hand looked to me like a corporate wife.  Ah, and, you know, the stories she told about struggles...it's hard for me to believe.  I mean she's a very rich woman...." and "...It [a "corporate wife"] looks like woman whose husband takes care of her, and she's been very lucky and blessed in this life...."   There comes a point, when a man gets to be over 50 years of age, he should well understand what "enslavism" is and what tyranny is, and Juan Williams is 58 years of age and yet promotes as good Barack Obama, an enslavist, and that shows Juan Williams is an evil man, and in the quoted material, Juan Williams showed his evil mind by suggesting that a woman who does not have to work because her husband has a job is a bad woman, and Juan Williams showed his evil mind by trying to persuade viewers that they should resent and be jealous of Ann Romney--Juan Williams was working to incite hate with no foundation.  By the way, as many of my documents on the Internet show, there is justification for hating Barack Obama, since he is an evil man and a man with a defective mind.. On Wednesday, August 29, 2012, Touré (a co-host on The Cycle, which is a MSNBC show) said: "...But more to what I want to talk about, I mean, two main points, you know, he [Paul Ryan, a Republican] loves this line of 'our rights come from God and nature,' which is so offensive to so much of America, because for black people, Hispanic people, and women, our rights do not come from God or nature.  They were not recognized by the natural order of America--they come from the government and from legislation that happened in relatively recent history in America, so that line just bothers me to my core...."  Basically, government is made of a few men, and what Touré was trying to preach is all the rights you have in life come from the few men of government, other men, who did not create you, and what Touré was pushing is a few men get to tell you how to live your life, having all power to issue your rights and all the power to to not issue you any rights!  Touré and Juan Williams are two more men on television who are pieces of crap.

    And I have to report on an ugly women in this edition of T.H.A.T., or I now reported information about a really ugly woman--based on her mind--who showed up on Today on Thursday, September 6, 2012.  The woman that I am focusing on is Eva Longoria (who was a regular on the television series entitled Desperate Housewives, which is no longer being made).  Actually, I have a logic piece here.  Barack Obama is a bad man, being, for instance, a man who seems satisfied to be with people who are "enslavists" in the form of communists and Islamic radicals (promoters and practitioners of Sharia), and when a person supports such a person as Barack Obama, that person is a bad person or ugly person.  At about 8:15 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) on September 6, 2012, on Today, Eva Longoria pushed out these words and showed herself for what she is--"...very literate on policy, very literate on issues."  In essence, unlike some actresses who are wishy-washy on what they are, Eva Longoria clearly made a public statement that showed she has a ugly mind--a mind that is willing to uphold communism and like defective and bad political ideologies.

    Oh.  On the televison-listings grid of TV Guide for Monday, September 10, 2012, NBC-TV was scheduled to run an episode of Grimm starting at 10:00 p.m., but what NBC-TV put on, starting at 10:00 p.m., was an episode of The New Normal (the first episode of a new fall series), and what I got out of the episode was the series is grim or, maybe I should say, unlikable, having the types of characters that NBC-TV is regularly featuring in sitcoms these days and that I would not want to show up in my living room from week to week.  The New Normal is a throw-away series and an ugly series or a makes-you-want-to-gag series.

    Remember: The Prisoner with Patrick McGoohan was a television show that was produced across the pond and shown on CBS-TV in the late 1960s, and I urge you to find The Prisoner on DVD, maybe from a library, and watch it, and you should show it--all the episodes--to teenagers, or buy it as a present for teenagers.

Stay well!
