    During this past summer, I built and installed what I called a 1920s-style fence in the suburban Detroit area, using pressured-treated two-by-fours, eight-foot-long cedar posts (with round-ball tops), and stainless-steel screws, and, of course, I used paint.  You probably have never installed such a fence, which was popular in at least the first half of the 1900s.  The fence is quite striking and unique.
    Why have I reported that I put in a unique fence?
    I made the report to show that I do things and to provide a different type of introduction to another edition of T.H.A.T..

    Oh, let me jump in with a reminder of how wickedly evil the mind of Barack Obama is.  No U.S. President should promote people vote for him as revenge on others.  On November 2, 2012, Barack Obama was at Springfield High School, Springfield, Ohio, and said: "...Voting is the best revenge!...."  Yes, such a piece of crap Barack Obama is, and the American people put that crap of a man back in the White House for four more years.  There is going to be a big price to pay for that sin against mankind--voting "yes" for Barack Obama, an enslavist!

    The previous paragraph ties in well with this paragraph, which shows off something that your favorite television newscast probably did not pass along to you, being a defective news source and being a pusher of communism and such.  During the election period of 2012, Barack Obama was pushing the idea that more money was going to students for education through Pell Grants.  Well, Barack Obama did not mention that the eligibility in the Pell Grant program had been reduced recently, starting on July 1, 2012 (and starting with the 2012-2013 Pell Grant season), and, for one, the eligibility has gone from 18 months to 12 months, and students could find the cuts are up to like three-year cuts.  In essence, Barack Obama--a perpetual liar and a communist and what is worse than a communist is--lied yet again!  So, a person can see the amount of money of the Pell Grant program may have gone up, but the ability to get the money has gone down.  [Medina, Victor.  "College students learn of Obama's secret Pell Grant cuts."  examiner.com, 14 November 2012.]

    So, the next topic for this edition of T.H.A.T. deals with corruption, and it is something that your favorite television newscast probably did not cover, as it probably has not shown up the corruption tied to the Barack Obama administration--even Barack Hussein Obama--related to the "Fast and Furious" scandal and the "Benghazi Killings Scandal," the latter of which you can learn about by seeing my document entitled The "Benghazi Killings Scandal": A Short Information-and-Status Report, which can be reached by using this Benghazi link.  Barack Obama is truly an evil man, as I show in numerous documents that are available at the web site for The Hologlobe Press, and a person who willingly votes for such a man in an election is a bad person, being highly ignorant, a black racist, a communist, or something else that is bad.  The election of November 2012 showed up something truly cruddy at Philadelphia, either a corrupt election system or an incredibly defective group of people existing in one general area.  The Inquirer (of Philadelphia) reported that, for the election of November 2012, no person in 59 election divisions of the area voted "yes" for Mitt Romney in the presidential choice.  For any political election to come up with 100 percent for one candidate is incredible and, to me, impossible.  Something rotten went on or is going on at Philadelphia!  [Hill, Miriam, and Andrew Seidman, John Duchneskie, and Bob Warner.  "In 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney got zero votes."  Philly.com (The Inquirer), 12 November 2012, 3:01 a.m.]

    For several decades at least, states have helped screw up the health-care industry and the health-care insurance industry till the idea of "insurance" has been corrupted, and now the country has the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2012 being implemented--something that was created by either evil persons (such as the communists in the U.S. Congress) or people who like to meddle in the lives of others though their meddling usually results in crap because they are in truth stupid people.  Has your favorite television newscast, especially local television newscast, which is usually made of fluff and useless filler, reported news about companies that have announced layoffs or already have made layoffs because Barack Obama was reelected or the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2012 will now not be killed, as some Internet web sites have, such as FreedomWorks (as in "Mourning in America--Here's Those Layoffs We Voted For Last Night" [Weiss, Rusty.  "Mourning in America--Here's Those Layoffs We Voted For Last Night."  FreedomWorks, 7 November 2012.]) and Market Daily News (as in "Economy: Post-Election Firings and Layoffs Surge" [Snyder, Michael.  "Economy: Post-Election Firings and Layoffs Surge."  Market Daily News, 10 November 2012.])?  If your favorite television newscast has not done such reporting, you can see you have a crappy source for useful news about the country and how your life is going to change, which is going to be for the worse.
    (Note: Another article about layoffs to see is "FORWARD! TO MASS LAYOFFS! of Human Events ["Hayward, John.  "FORWARD!  TO MASS LAYOFFS!"  Human Events, 8 November 2012, 07:58 a.m.], and there are others articles that you will find on the Internet.)

    On Wednesday, November 14, 2012, Barack Obama held another press conference at the White House, and it was a sickening event, because it was staged and phony and fake.  Barack Obama appeared, made a statement, and then asked for questions.  Unlike when George W. Bush was the U.S. President--a time when George Bush actually was hailed by the press during a press conference, such as by reporters' raising hands and calling attention to themselves and George Bush making choices from around the room--Barack Obama looked down at a card or a piece of paper for names of people sitting before him and called out names.  When he called out a name, he would look about the room, as if searching for the person related to the name, and each time, the person was right before him, in the first row of reporters.  It was phony!  It is obvious the questions were known to Barack Obama ahead of time.  The group of reporters as a whole looked as if it was made up of mannequins, lifeless.  A person has to wonder why most of them showed up, given it was known who was going to be called on.  Most of the reporters could have stayed home, watched the event on television, and wrote up their stories.  Basically, Barack Obama used the time to push hate and jealousy, hate and jealousy, hate and jealousy against the so-called "rich," who he implied were not doing their part, and Barack Obama passed along lies and avoided answering questions.  On Barack Obama's part, it was "hate speech" wrapped up in faux niceness on behalf of the so-called "middle class."  By the way, no reporter pushed the idea about where he was during the attack at Benghazi (Libya) on September 11, 2012, when four Americans were killed, an event that I call the "Benghazi Killings Scandal" (to learn more about the event, you should see The "Benghazi Killings Scandal": A Short Information-and-Status Report, which can be reached by using this Benghazi link).  One reporter--a female--came off as if she was a "groupie" of his, saying she has been following his career for a long time.  At one point, Barack Obama pushed out an angry presentation--it was when he was defending Susan Rice (the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations), who had helped push a lie about what had sparked the attack in Benghazi.  And the event was another that was used to push the idea of imposing a "carbon tax" on the country, which will, in set up, hurt the so-called "middle class," because the so-called middle class will be paying more for products and services (the prices of which will rise).  Yes, the event was a sickening affair, headed by an insane man, drooled over by a collection of reporters (sheep or pigs, ready for the slaughter)!

    By the way, on Sunday, December 9, 2012, I happened to see an episode of the locally produced talk show called Spotlight on the News, which is shown weekly on WXYZ-HD (Channel 7.1), Detroit, and which is hosted by Chuck Stokes.  The episode came off as a show of two communists working to teach lies to at least Detroiters--the guest of U.S. Senator Carl Levin (a Democrat related to Michigan), who is a communist.  Carl Levin lied about the Republicans, and, for example, he tried to teach the idea that Republicans' working to block Barack Obama is bad for the country (noting how, as he said, the Republicans really pushed to stop all legislation two years ago).  Chuck Stokes (a black) challenged Carl Levin on none of Carl Levin's lies, and so it goes with a communist and black radical.

         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).

    On Sunday, November 25, 2012, a television program entitled Soul Train Awards 2012 was produced in Las Vegas, Nevada.  During the program, Jamie Foxx, speaking like a gutter man, said: "...First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama, Barack Obama!..."  Jamie Foxx showed himself to be a truly garbage piece of man by making the statement, since no "U.S. President" should be praised as a "lord and savior."  [You would have to do violence to me before I would ever see any person as a "lord and savior," especially a man as defective as Barack Obama is.]

    In the previous edition of T.H.A.T. #103, I reported that in this issue of T.H.A.T. would contain information about media people who have supported U.S. President Barack Obama, meaning they support a highly corrupt and evil man, which is public information, as is his ties to terrorists and communists, who are bad people.  I do it, for one, to give people new to the country a primer about who are the enemies of the country--the United States of America--as it was founded, promoting bad political philosophy.  Communism, socialism (which is nothing more than temporary soft-line communism), and Sharia are bad political systems, in which a few have rule over others (treated as subjects and not citizens), and the rulers are prone to using violence, threats of imprisonment, and coercion to control the people (often referred to as "the masses"), and, for example, the people have no real voice in government matters and have no real right to speak out against the rulers.  A smart person, as I am, understands Barack Obama is a supporter of communism, socialism, and Sharia, and a smart person well understands Barack Obama is anti-U.S.A. (as shown by is violating several times to date The United States Constitution), which was designed to block people from being dictators of the country, is a black racist who has black racists as friends, has terrorists (such as Bill Ayers) as friends, works to make people believe business people, doctors, and others in society are enemies, is tied to coverups and scandals (such as the "Fast and Furious" gun-running scandal), et cetera.  It is well evident that Barack Obama's is sending the country toward an economic crash, partially because of his push for ever great federal-government debt, and there is no mistake that Barack Obama is a perpetual liar (the degree to which--it can be said--reaches true great mental ill).  People who support such a person are bad persons, whether their support comes from ignorance or not.  When people in the United States of America come to hate the results of the economic crash or, especially, the results of the full implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2012, they must be well aware of those who are to blame (beyond those enemies in former U.S. Congress and the present U.S. Congress), and many of those to blame who should be the targets of retribution are in the media, and that especially includes the newscasters and news reporters seen on most of the main television news networks.  Yes, for the first time in history, people are going to come to hate the country in the future, and here is a list of only some of those--nationally known--who support Barack Obama or refuse to report the evilness that is Barack Obama: Mitch Albom (radio personality and author), Tim Allen (actor), Alec Baldwin (actor), Martin Bashir (MSNBC personality), Beyonce (singer), Tom Brokaw (news anchor), Wolf Blitzer (CNN personality), Mariah Carey (singer), James Carville (Democratic Party political pundit), Eleanor Clift (news commentator), George Clooney (actor), Stephen Colbert (television talk-show host), Ellen Degeneres (television talk-show host), Cameron Diaz (actress), Snoop Dogg (gangster rapper), Robert Downey Jr. (actor), Gloria Estefan (singer), Jamie Foxx (actor), Morgan Freeman (actor), Aretha Franklin (singer), Janeane Garofalo (comedian), Danny Glover (actor), Whoopi Goldberg (actress and talk-show host), Cee Lo Green (musical performer), Tom Hanks (actor), Alyson Hannigan (actor), Anne Hathaway (singer), Salma Hayek (actress), Jennifer Hudson (singer), Jay-Z (rap musician), Scarlett Johansson (actress), Jon Bon Jovi (musician and lead man for the musician group called Bon Jovi), Ashley Judd (actress and country-music singer), Spike Lee (filmmaker), Jimmy Kimmel (television talk-show host), Heidi Klum (model), Ashton Kutcher (actor), Matt Lauer (television personality), Jay Leno (television talk-show host), David Letterman (television talk-show host), Eva Longoria (actress), Jennifer Lopez (actress), Jane Lynch (actress), Rachel Maddow (MSNBC personality), Madonna (singer), Bill Maher (comedian and television talk-show host), Chris Matthews (MSNBC personality), Paul McCartney (musician and former "Beatle"), Andrea Mitchell (news reporter), Demi Moore (actress), Michael Moore (filmmaker), Rosie O'Donnell (television talk-show host and celebrity), Keith Olbermann (television talk-show host), Gwyneth Paltrow (actress), Sarah Jessica Parker (actress), Scott Pelley (newscaster), Katy Perry (singer), Tyler Perry (actor and television producer), Brad Pitt (actor), Sidney Poitier (actor), Nicole Richie (television personality), Chris Rock (comedian), Charlie Rose (television talk-show host), Susan Sarandon (actress), Diane Sawyer (television talk-show host), Bob Schieffer (news personality), Tavis Smiley (television talk-show host), Jada Smith (actress), Will Smith (actor), Aaron Sorkin (television writer and television producer), Steven Spielberg (movie producer), Bruce Sprinsteen (musician), George Stephanopoulos (television personality), Jeffrey Tambor (actor), Eddie Veddar (musical performer), Harvey Weinstein (media mogul), Kanya West (musical performer), Brian Williams (television newscaster), Juan Williams (political commentator), Vanessa L. Williams (actress), Wendy Williams (television talk-show host), Oprah Winfrey (television talk-show host), Joanne Woodward (actress), Stevie Wonder (singer), and Fareed Zakaria (news personality).  You should be aware the list is not complete, but it does give a person who is naive a starting point in a search for those who committed a crime against humanity by helping to kill the United States of America as it was founded and who led to the United States of America becoming a place that a good person cannot be proud of as a whole.  You should be aware it is impossible for me to give a list of bad and evil television reporters and news anchors around the country, but you will find, especially in Detroit, one of worst of is Stephen Clark of WXYZ-HD, who will forever be tied to a week-long health-care report of October 2009, which was like a communist propaganda piece, telling lies and being deceptive and pushing as good a national-health-care system.

    I say again--I provided the previous paragraph so that persons, especially persons new to the country and naive about the evil persons who are prominently seen in the media, would be warned about those whose way of life will ultimately hurt the persons.

    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.

    On Sunday, September 18, 2012, during prime time, I watched most of the Sunday Night Football broadcast.  From time to time, I tuned away to see what else was going on on television, and several times, I tuned into The 40th Anniversary American Music Awards broadcast.  Almost every time that I tuned in, I ended up seeing a rotten production number, usually rap-based musical number.  The music industry has really fallen to crappy levels since the early 1970s!  (I grew up in the CKLW-AM 800 age of the Detroit/Windsor area--the late 1960s and early 1970s--and I know almost all the tunes I heard during the awards show would never have been put on the air on CKLW-AM; that was a time when good radio people had the nerve to say what was bad and not play the bad.)

    On Thursday, November 22, 2012, WDIV-HD, Channel 4.1, Detroit, produced another America's Thanksgiving Parade, which was shown on a number of stations (through syndication).  It was hosted by Devin Scillian and Carmen Harlan and had such other station personalities as Chuck Gaidica and Paula Tutman, and some of the performers were Kem and Karen Newman, and some of the people who were interviewed were Art Van Elslander, Daniel Loepp, and Tony Michaels.  What was bad about the presentation is it was promoting the idea that Detroit is getting better, and that glosses over the true crud that exists in Detroit; for example, two days previous, the FBI raided the main offices of the Detroit Public Library, and it looks as if there is a money scandal at the Detroit Public Library, which is the last place in a city where a person would expect a big-time money scandal.  The corruption runs deep in Detroit.  Incidentally, the Grand Marshals were the husband-and-wife team of U.S. Representative John Dingell and Debby Dingell, hardly people who should be saluted, given U.S. Representative John Dingell (a crippled man with a crippled mind, which promotes communism) helped push through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, which is a truly ugly piece of law that will lead to the death of Americans and economic disaster, and U.S. Representative John Dingell has backed Barack Obama's violation of The United States Constitution.  Although the television show that was the parade was an adequate production, it helped cover up the rottenness that is Detroit, and that is bad.

    On Friday, November 23, 2012, CBS-TV aired two cartoon shows of the past--Frosty the Snowman (a fun and likable presentation from 1969) and Frosty Returns (a presentation from 1992).  When the two programs are played as a group, a person can see how much better Frosty the Snowman is over Frosty Returns, which has, for example, a bad song sung by Frosty about midway through the presentation and has a businessman as the enemy and talks about environmental stuff. Frosty Returns can be called a production hitting about midway between the good days of television (several decades ago), when many people had the ability to make nice shows and fun shows, and today, when most of those involved in making television shows have not the makeup or mindset to make nice shows or fun shows (they are people who seem not to like other people and make other people feel good, lacking that capability in their nature), and so goes the nature of "liberalism" (such as communism).  (By the way, I watched the two presentations with someone who had never seen Frosty Returns before and who said it was bad because, for one, the adults in the show looked mad and angry.)

    So, as the previous paragraph notes, I have seen some--some--good television within the last month, and, not noted yet, I have seen something good on the Internet (through YouTube).  I stumbled across some videos that feature Ray Stevens, a man who has been making, for example, comedy songs since the 1960s.  Recently, he put together several truth pieces that focus on Barack Obama, and on YouTube, I found "God Save Arizona," "Obama Budget Plan," and "Obama Nation."  The pieces are not high-budget pieces, but they tell the story, and I say that they tell the story of a bad man and a man who is not nice--Barack Hussein Obama.

    "For the record," I note that I saw the video in which Angus T. Jones (a regular performer on Two and a Half Men) talked about Two and a Half Men, and the video, for one, had Angus T. Jones putting down the series, calling it "filth," and urging people not to watch it.

    Speaking of "filth," let me make another television note.  A little before the election of November 6, 2012, a bunch of people were putting down Mitt Romney for talking about cutting the funding to PBS, and the big focus of the bunch of people was Sesame Street.  A few weeks after the election had taken place, Kevin Clash, the man who had played Elmo for many years, resigned from the show, after yet another person had accused him of sexual misconduct with boys. By the way, the first accuser was paid off and then wished to cancel the pay-off agreement, and it seems to me PBS (the communist-controlled network, evidence of which can be seen by dissecting the show called The Choice 2012) and the Sesame Street people--"liberals"--were involved in the pay off to protect their precious money-making Elmo and hold on to what money they get from the federal government.  Garbage people even exist at Sesame Street (and do not put Oscar the Grouch in that group at the moment).  [Moore, Frazier.  "Elmo puppeteer quits after new scandal." Detroit Free Press, 21 November 2012, p. 5A.]

    On Sunday, December 2, 2012, Bob Costas showed himself to be a rotten man, when, during a broadcast of Sunday Night Football (on NBC-TV, a communist-run network), he took up the subject of gun control, which had no place being mentioned on the program, which was a sports program.  During the talk, Bob Costas quoted material from a man named Jason Witlock, a writer based in Kansas City.  On Monday, December 3, 2012, on a podcast (of Roland Martin's or CNN's), Jason Whitlock (who works for foxsports.com) said in an interview: "...I try to take advantage of the opportunity to talk about the real world when sports lends itself to that and try to open people's eyes.  You know, I did not go as far as I would like to go 'cause my thoughts on the NRA [National Rifle Association], ah, and America's gun culture.  I, I believe the NRA is the new KKK...."  [The KKK is fully known as the Ku Klux Klan, which existed in earnest in the roughly the middle 1900s, and the entity was a "white racist" entity that was anti-black.]  Jason Whitcock is a black man, and it now can be said that Jason Whitlock is race baiter and a "black racist."  The National Rifle Association is made up of whites and black and all, and blacks and whites and all go to gun shows and go hunting (I have seen those black guys who are deer hunters in Michigan).  Yes, Jason Whitcock is one of the pieces of crap working for, in essence, the Fox company.

    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.

    By the way, when bad people become politicians, they are very unlikely to create good laws and rules, and that is a rule of life.

Stay well!
