    Before you see this edition of T.H.A.T., I have this special announcement.  On Wednesday, January 23, 2013, I was listening to The Frank Beckmann Show, which is radio broadcast on WJR-AM on weekday mornings.  Normally, Frank Beckmann does well hosting his radio show, working to show up the bad that is tied to Barack Obama.  On January 23, 2013, Frank Beckmann made a big screw up, though.  He had a telephone caller on the line--a woman--and at one point, the woman said that she was going to stop watching movies with George Clooney, who is a hard-line "liberal" and a big supporter of Barack Obama, who is a communist, a black racist, and worse, and, in truth, Barack Obama is hurting millions of persons of the world, especially millions of persons in the United States of America, and more persons are going to be hurt in the future.  Given what I said so far, I can report that Frank Beckman urged the woman to reconsider her thought about not seeing movies with George Clooney.  That was nonsense from Frank Beckman.  Frank Beckmann passed on idiocy.  When a man supports a man who is hurting millions of people--purposely--there should be backlash for the sake of mankind, and the woman was right about deciding not to see movies with George Clooney, who would make money from her seeing his movies.  Lives are at stake!  Now, I do recommend you listen to Frank Beckmann's radio program, because he does well as a rule.  However, I do note again that Frank Beckmann erred.  Consider what enemies of the country there are in the media.  On Sunday, January 17, 2013, CBS Sunday Morning (a weekly program broadcast by CBS-TV) had an editorial from a professor at Georgetown University--Louis Michael Seidman--and the man promoted the idea of getting rid of The United States Constitution.  In essence, the man was promoting the country adopt some form of "enslavism" form of government, such as a communist government, in which the few (the government made up of politicians) own the people and not the people own the government, and also the man was promoting to an extent--anarchy.  Louis Michael Seidman showed himself to be a bad man, and you can learn more about the man by seeing my document entitled Louis Michael Seidman -- Another Evil Man Pushing for Enslavism in the United States of  America, which can be reached by using this link: Seidman.
    In addition, on February 7, 2013, the American public learned much more of the horridness of the mind of Barack Obama, learning facts to back up what had been guessed at.  Several persons, such as Leon Panetta (who was leaving his job as U.S. Secretary of the Defense), showed through their testimony in the U.S. Congress before U.S. Senators that, during the attack on Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2013, Barack Obama did not order any help be sent and he seemed unconcerned about the event, even not checking in to see what progress may or may not have been made to protect the Americans in Benghazi.  Only the U.S. President can order a cross-border attack using the U.S. military into another country, and Barack Obama gave no order. A number of Americans were injured in the attack, which lasted about seven hours, and several persons, such as a U.S. ambassador, were killed.  In essence, nothing was done to try and save the Americans at Benghazi.  The incident shows that all Americans, especially soldiers, cannot expect Barack Obama to give orders to have U.S. soldiers and such rescue Americans who are under assault, such as on what is considered U.S. soil in another country--such as an embassy building or a consulate building.  Remember: For well over a week, after the attack had taken place, Barack Obama lied in public about what had sparked the attack, blaming a video made in the U.S., which, very, very few persons saw, and that lied was proved a lie in hearings in the U.S. Congress, and a smart person knows Barack Obama used the "video" to push more more censorship laws in the United States.  In addition, Barack Obama's "Fast and Furious" gun-running program got one U.S. border agent killed and a number of Mexicans killed, and it can be said that Barack Obama's long delay in authorizing more troops to fight in Afghanistan a few years ago probably compromised the lives of soldiers already in the battle zones. To learn more about the "Benghazi Killings Scandal," you are urged to see my document entitled The "Benghazi Killings Scandal": A Short Information-and-Status Report, which can be reached by using this Benghazi link.  It can be reported that Barack Obama is an "historic" president--his actions and inactions have help lead to the death of Americans--and I have yet to take into consideration the horror that will come from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.  I say--"We have a killer in the White House!"

- - - T.H.A.T. #106 - - -

    On Thursday, January 10, 2012, I watched an episode of the old prime-time television series called Letter to Loretta (which would later be called The Loretta Young Show) on the television network entitled TCT Family, and the episode was from 1953, the year that I was born.  In the story, Loretta Young plays a woman--a writer of books--who ends up discovering a real murder or discovering two murders have been committed, and she works to put the killer behind bars.  At the end of the story, a police officer says--"Bad politicians are elected by good citizens who don't vote."  That line is repeated by Loretta Young (as herself) shortly thereafter.  In 1953, on television, as you can see, viewers were given a lesson about life, which many people of today have never learned. Letter to Loretta was produced during the period that I label as the best years of television--from the mid-1940s to about the 1970s--since many likable shows were produced, unlike today.  And today, here, you have another look at television through an edition of T.H.A.T..

    So have you noticed that prime-time television has not only a lot of unlikable or bad characters in series but also a bunch of titles for series that hint to the bad nature of people?  If you have not noticed, you have not paid attention, so I will inform you about the subject.  For this 2012-2013 prime-time season on the broadcast networks, you can see Deception, Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, Revenge, and Scandal.  By the way, two seasons ago, there was $#*! My Dad Says (a series featuring William Shatner).

    It is time for a lesson about television, which is a piece of high thought.  On Sunday, January 13, 2012, I saw a number of examples of idiots and bad people on television as part of political talk shows.  In the morning, I happened to stumble across George Stephanopoulos hosting This Week with George Stephanopoulos and interviewing Peggy Noonan (a writer for The Wall Street Journal and supposedly a person representing the Republican point of view during the discussion), Al Hunt, David Walker, Judy Woodruff, and Paul Krugman (of The New York Times, which is a far-left or communist publication), and I did not run a tape to catch any of the discussion, having no idea I might need to pass along some of the nonsense said by all in an edition of T.H.A.T., and there was a lot of low-level thought and misinformation (or lies) that I could have passed along.  Later in the day, I was watching a football game between New England and Texas, and during the half time presentation, I flipped through the channels and ended up seeing a portion of an interview between Bill Moyers and Paul Krugman on Bill Moyer's program called Moyers & Company, which is a weekly PBS program and pushes socialism and communism and the thoughts of evil or idiot people regularly.  During the interview between Bill Moyers and Paul Krugman, who, for one, was trying to sell his latest book, the title of which does not matter, Paul Krugman pushed the nonsense idea that the economy could be improved quite well within two years by getting the country back to filling pot holes at normal rates again and getting more teachers on the job, which is truly idiot thought.  Paul Krugman was implying the idea that, if the federal government would spend more money, the economy would get better.  That is nonsense!  In addition, Paul Krugman was pushing the idea that the federal government's endless overspending was not bad.  That is nonsense!  By the way, Paul Krugman comes off like a David Brooks, another writer for The New York Times, but David Brooks pushes the idea that he is a "conservative," though he is really a man who supports Barack Obama and pushes for an "enslavism" form of government for the country, such as that which would have Barack Obama operate like a dictator.  At one point, when talking about "serious people" or what I call "so-called" serious thinkers or pseudo thinkers, Paul Krugman said--"I guess I impersonate one now and then."  I say that Paul Krugman is no "serious thinker."  Yes, it is quite easy to see low-level thinkers who can be deemed evil persons on television these days--in this age that I call "The Pseudo Information Age and the Age of Ignorance."  Be warned--Paul Krugman is a bad man who is on television.  Plus, Judy Woodruff, David Walker, Al Hunt, Peggy Noonan, George Stephanopoulos, and Bill Moyers are bad people too.

    Let me now show what a idiot and evil man is.  On January 21, 2013, Barack Obama gave an inaugural speech--his second--and on January 22, 2013, the Detroit Free Press had on the front page a story--commentary really--from a writer known as Stephen Henderson, who happens to be a regular commentator on the local weekly television show entitled MiWeek, which appears on WTVS-TV, Channel 56.1 (Henderson, Stephen.  "Obama lays out a progressive vision."  Detroit Free Press, 22 January 2013, pp. 1A and 8A.).  The headline shows off Stephen Henderson's support for "communism," since he used "progressive" in the title of the article--when you hear "progressive" attached to the theme of politics, you should hear at least "communism."  The first sentence of the article was--"WASHINGTON -- If first inaugural speeches are about vision, second addresses are about clarity."  I note that, during the Barack Obama's speech, Barack Obama was not clear, as I prove in the entry for January 21, 2013, in my document entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama (Part Two), which can be reached by using this link: Quotes2.  There were three more sentences (which were not sentences), and then the article had this set of words--"Under the repeated theme of 'we the people' (he said it five times, and each time the crowd near me exalted, 'The people!'), President Barack Obama laid out an unabashedly progressive vision for the next four years, and tied it explicitly to the nation's founding principles."  Here, Stephen Henderson passed along crap, as had Barack Obama during the speech.  Later, Stephen Henderson wrote--"Under each theme, Obama made clear not just that the nation's founding ideals compel collective action, but that it's his sense of what must be done that should prevail."   "Collective action"--this a communist's cliché.  And later on, Stephen Henderson wrote--"'Preserving our individual freedoms,' he said, 'ultimately requires collective action.'"  Stephen Henderson's article shows off his nature--a supporter of "enslavism" (particularly "communism").  Teach your friends and children that Stephen Henderson is a rotten man and an evil man, who cannot be trusted to make anyone better, as Barack Obama cannot be!

    Here is another example that many media entities are pushers of "enslavism" (such as communism) on the country.  In November 2011, John Dickerson became the "political director" at CBS News; today, John Dickerson is still the "political director" for CBS News and is the chief political correspondent for a highly left-wing Internet news entity called Slate ("left-wing" is a term that relates to something actually bad).  A few days before Barack Obama would make his inaugural speech for a second term as the U.S. President, John Dickerson wrote in Slate--"...If he [Barack Obama] wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat [of the Republicans]...."  A person who sees that statement must wonder--What does Barack Obama want to turn the country into?  Of course, a person should see the answer probably means a one-party dictatorship, such as a communist dictatorship.  In addition, a person should see John Dickerson is no down-the-middle or unbiased writer, and a person can see that, since CBS News has John Dickerson on staff, CBS News is not a supporter of, for example, The United States Constitution.  CBS News is yet another enemy of the United States of America.  That is the way life is.  ["CBS political director urges Obama to 'go for the throat' of GOP to cement legacy."  FOXNews.com, 21 January 2013.]

    On Friday, February 1, 2013, it was known that, in the previous quarter, the economy had contracted, though it was the holiday period.  On that day, Jay Carney (a spokesman for Barack Hussein Obama or the White House Press Secretary) appeared before the press and said a bunch of nonsense.  He said--"...We've had sustained economic growth now for three years...."  That is idiot thought and a lie.  He also said--"...We've had fifty-four, ah, months--I believe it is--of job creation...."  Fifty-four months--this is nonsense.  Barack Obama has only been the U.S. President for about forty-eight months (four years of twelve months).

    Your favorite television newscast probably did not cover this topic, which focuses on a man called Ron Paul, who calls himself a "Libertarian" and whose son is U.S. Senator Rand Paul (a Republican).  On Monday, February 4, 2013, Mark R. Levin during his nationally syndicated radio show (The Mark Levin Show) read a "tweet" that Ron Paul had sent out to the world recently, and the focus of the tweet was on a famous U.S. military sniper who--not in battle--was killed recently.  Ron Paul's message was (as read by Mark R. Levin)--"...Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.  Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense...."  Chris Kyle is a military hero, helping to protect follow military personnel on the battlefield, and he did not die in battle, but he die at home soil.  Chris Kyle was not living by the sword at the time he was killed, and, anyway, his living by the sword as an active soldier protected others.  Ron Paul once again showed off his idiot mind by what he "tweeted."  By the way, Ron Paul has in the past run to become the U.S. President.

         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).

    There have been some changes in programming at WADL-TV, (Channel 38.1 (and Channel 38.4)) and WKBD-TV (Channel 50), Detroit, recently, and I am now getting around to two changes.  First, I report that, in the 1970s, I spent a lot of time doing research at the main branch of the Detroit Public Library in editions of Variety (the weekly entertainment newspaper) from the 1940s and 1950s and other years, and in the 1940s and 1950s editions, I was looking at for the most part television reviews, and often I saw in reviews the word "sustainer," which indicated a particular show or series had no sponsor and hinted that the network or producers were looking for a sponsor for the program (in the late 1940s and 1950s, it was often advertising agencies that produced the programs on the networks and controlled the programs, but it was not always the case).  Okay, that is done.  Now, in late 2002, a weekday morning television show called The Daily Show was launched in syndication, and then it had such regulars as Peggy Bunker, Mitch English, Andrea Jackson, and Ron Corning.  The series would not show up in Detroit till September 2005, airing on WKBD-TV, and in September 2007, it would jump over to WADL-TV, where it would stay around till September 2009.  In late December 2012, The Daily Buzz showed up on WKBD-TV, and now the regular hosts are Lisa Spooner, Lance Smith, Charles Divins, and Jessica Reyes (whose main function is to do weather reports), and some of the other regulars are Laura Dellutri, Morgahn Miller, and Andrea Jackson.  The program prouction values are adequate, since the budget is big enough.  Generally speaking, the regulars of The Daily Buzz come off as twelve-year-olds, especially when they are doing commentary about things--they come off as low-level thinkers.  Going from memory, I say that The Daily Buzz seems to be more like a kiddy show in tone than it was when I first saw it in 2005.  Incidentally, for viewers of Channel 50, The Daily Buzz replaced the local production called First Forecast Mornings (a portion of which also aired each day on WWJ-TV, which is the sister station to WKBD-TV).  In Detroit, The Daily Buzz is two hours of childishness.  Now, let me jump over to WADL-TV.  In December 2012, viewers could begin to see a local production on WADL-TV called X IT with Dr. Tina (you pronounce "X IT" as "exit").  Right now, X IT with Dr. Tina looks like a sustainer, and it looks like a very, very low budget series, which has had several runs on Mondays at 11:00 p.m. so far.  The sets are rotten, looking super cheap, as if made by junior-high students.  Oh, let me make an aside here.  When I saw reviews in Variety of the 1940s and 1950s, I saw reviews of programs being aired on the DuMont network (which died out in the mid 1950s).  "DuMont" (the informal name) was a company that was important in making television sets and television transmitters in the 1940s and 1950s, but the operators of the company were not show biz people really, and often the shows that were put on the network were one-camera shows and had a stagnate look and lacked good entertainment values, and, in fact, the programs looked worst than the shows being put on by NBC-TV and CBS-TV did, which were the prominent television networks in the late 1940s and in the 1950s.  Well, X IT with Dr. Tina is a one-camera series, and for the show that I caught on January 14, 2013, there were no credits for me to see.  The goal of the show seems to be to help women, especially young women, become better, and in the show that I caught, Dr. Tina was trying to help a woman named Maria Shanon, who was 22 years of age and was pregnant and had had a rough childhood and a had a bad time with men, finding rotten men, and helping Dr. Tina was a woman named Tarra Ray, who was called a "therapist."  I am not going to talk specifics about the format, which involves, for one, a "wheel" (cheaper in quality but sort of like the wheel of The Wheel of Fortune game show) that the person being helped spins for some reason.  The episode of X IT with Dr. Tina that I saw looked as if Dr. Tina was not really gaining ground in helping Maria Shanon, since Dr. Tina's work seemed unclear in her mind and was a bit shallow.  Dr. Tina needs more preparation and needs to sound less hesitant about her work and less shallow in her analysis--getting each patient of sorts to see well the cause of the problems and see the ways to improve the self.  Of course, maybe, Dr. Tina did help Maria Shanon with, for one, the reason she gets involved with bad men, such as those who are not financially able to take care of her, but that will only be known by Maria Shanon in the future.  By the way, Dr. Tina has a book in the marketplace informally entitled Trauma Ties.  Certainly, X IT with Dr. Tina would be immediately improved if a sponsor was found and then the setting was improved; she sat in a big chair, which seemed to swallow her up, and the guests were in what appeared to be dining-room chairs, and the mismatch in chairs was not good.  I have no idea how long Dr. Tina's series will last or how long it is scheduled to last (in a contract commitment existing now), but I note that the series exists.

    In the previous section, I mentioned the DuMont Television Network, and now I talk about a program that was on that network.  On Saturday, January 19, 2013, I put "old television shows 1940s" into the search box for YouTube, and that led me to an episode of a series that I call School House (at least for an informal name), which was on the DuMont network in early 1949.  Wikipedia.com calls the series "The School House," and television listings in a newspaper called the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal (of Lockport, New York) of the time have the series listed as "DuMont School House."  I watched the episode, gaining as much data that I could about the series, and then I went hunting for old articles about the series.  School House was a series featuring Kenny Delmar (a well-known network radio announcer) as a "professor" or teacher, who was called Kenny Delmar.  The series had all the performers using their real stage names, and although the series was set in a class room, which might make a person think of a fictional series with fictional characters, the series was a variety show, in which young performers danced or sang or did comedy or did something else that a person might see during a variety show.  In the episode that I saw, the students (performers) were Wally Cox (who would become well known to television viewers around the country over the next two decades or so), Arnold Stange (who would become well known to television viewers around the country over the next two decades or so, such as for being a spokesman for Chunky candy), Kenny Bowers, Rudy Cardenas (a juggler), Tommy Dix, Vilma Sherry, and Aileen Stanley Jr. (a young woman and not the performer of the early 1900s).  Generally speaking, the program was not too bad, given that it had been made in 1949; that is, the singers and dancers did well enough.  The big negative of the show was Kenny Delmar, who came off as a not-so-good burlesque comedian or vaudeville comedian; his jokes were stale or were flat, and Kenny Delmar even came off as not likable at times.  Wikipedia.com reports that the show ran from January 18, 1949, to April 19, 1949.  I researched the series, using old television listings, and they show that the series aired on Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m. (for a half hour) at least from February 8, 1949, to April 19, 1949, but I found a listing for April 26, 1949, too.  I could not see any newspapers from January 1949, such as editions of Lockport Union-Sun & Journal, so at the moment, I shall just say that the series aired in the early 1940s.  Early on in the episode, Kenny Delmar, Kenny Bowers, and Wally Cox did a live commercial for a DuMont television set, which had about a 20-inch screen, and it was pushed that the screen was about 40-percent bigger than most screens of television sets on the market at the time, and during the commercial, Wally Cox did most of the selling, and Wally Cox sort of did a weak job, stumbling on the lines and stalling slightly here and there.  If you get bored, you might search down the episode of School House, which was written by Joe Stein and Sidney Reznick (the latter of whom died on July 24, 2012).  I have not seen a television review of the series, but if I were to look in old editions of Variety, I might find one.  Since the series did not last long, I wonder if the series did not last long not only because of Kenny Delmar but also because the series sort of felt old, like it was a show from the early 1940s--having a style that was sort of old-hat.  The show feels like a World War II-type show.

    Recently, I saw an episode of Market Warriors, which is a weekly television series shown on PBS-associated television stations, and it made me smile.  People who watch the series regularly--at least good people who watch the series--should be well aware one of the regulars of the series is highly unlikable, and that person is Miller Gaffney, a thin blonde gal, who comes of as phony and fake and bitchy and shallow and arrogant, et cetera.  In the episode to which I refer, Miller Gaffney came across a man at a flea market--a real man--and it was neat to see a real man not put up with her crap, and what he did showed clearly on his face.

    So, did your local 11:00 p.m. newscast of Saturday, February 2, 2013, present to you what Reverend Jesse Jackson had said earlier in the day at Chicago, a communist-run city, where street gangs run free and shootings are commonplace in the black community?  Reverend Jesse Jackson said in his slobbering and drunken-like delivery: "...We look at death comin' down the street and can't stop it.  We need presidential intervention.  It must be seen as a threat to national security.  It's now just local.  When the President shows up it shows ultimate national seriousness...."  His set of words shows off a defective mind.  For the most part, the black communities in the country, such as in Chicago and Detroit, have cultures that are gutter like and tribal like and corrupt and morally bankrupt, and much of the cause goes to the members of the Democratic Party of the last fifty years or so, which, in the far past, had supported slavery of blacks in the country and which since at least the 1960s have turned the blacks for the most part into modern-day slaves of communism and socialism.  Until the good black men and women throw out the scum like Reverend Jesse Jackson from their communities and their cultures, nothing will change, even if Barack Obama shows up in the communities with his smiling face--which is really the face of an evil man.  By the way, shoot all the whites in the country in the face, and then know what blacks remain will still have to abide by the Rules of Nature and the Rules of Man, such as the one rule that notes that nothing gets done if people do not do anything or the one rule that notes that good people have to confine the bad or push the bad to stop the evil from growing and destroying their communities.

    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.

    Some people watch the weekly Sunday-morning television program from CBS-TV called Face the Nation, which is hosted by Bob Schieffer.  On Sunday, January 13, 2013, one thing that Bob Schieffer said is: "...What happened in Newtown [the shooting at a school] was probably the worst day in this country's history since 'Nine-Eleven.'  We found Osama bin Laden.  We tracked him down.  We changed the way that we dealt with that problem.  Oh, surely, finding Obama bin Laden, surely passing civil-rights legislation as Lyndon Johnson was able to do, and before that surely defeating the Nazis, ah, was a much more formidable task than taking on the gun lobby...."  One portion of the so-called gun lobby is the National Rifle Association (or the NRA), one purpose of which is to fight against the federal government's working to take away from the citizens of the United States of America the right to own guns, which could be used to fight back against bad federal politicians, such as a bad and insane U.S. President.  In the quoted material from Bob Schieffer, you can see Bob Schieffer was, for one, trying to equate the members of the gun lobby in the United States of America, especially the members of the NRA, with an enemy like the Nazis (the evil people of Germany around the mid-1900s, who were responsible for the start of World War II).  Bob Schieffer on January 13, 2013, once again showed himself to be an enemy of The United States Constitution and a friend of Barack Obama's.

    Here is must pass along something that I know your favorite television newscast did not pass along to you.  On Tuesday, January 15, 2013, a friend of my passed along a letter or newsletter (dated December 28, 2012) from David Horowitz of the Freedom Center, and in the letter on the back page, David Horowitz passed along a story about a relative.  Here is the story:
    "This past Thanksgiving I was with family and during dinner caught up with my brother-in-law, who has lived most of his life in a home for the mentally disabled and, through now in his forties, has the intelligence level of a 6-year-old.
    "'Obama saved me,' he said to me out of the blue.
    "'What do you mean?'
    "'I voted for him for president and now he's saving me.'
    "I was taken aback by these words, since he had no idea who Obama was, or what a president might be, and would be unable to fill out a registration form, let alone get to the polling place by himself.
    "So I ask him how he knew that and how he had registered and cast his vote.  In halting, impeded speech, he told me that the people who take care of him at the home filled out 'the papers' to register him to vote, told him how Obama cared for him, even taught him the Obama chants, and then took him to the polling place to vote.  They did the same for all of the mentally disabled patients in their care, approximately 60 in all."
    This story shows what evil persons do to put a bad man in the office of the U.S. presidency.

    For idiots and evil persons, I note--"Conservatives"--in relation to politics--are people who want the government to follow the rules and ways of The United States Constitution, which is designed to help block a person who, for one, attains the office of the U.S. President from becoming a dictator of the country, passing law upon law on the whim of the moment.  On January 17, 2013, I came across a story that your favorite television newscast probably did not cover (Scarborough, Rowan. "West Point center cites dangers of 'far right' in US."  The Washington Times, 17 January 2013.), and it talked about an entity called the "Combating Terrorism Center" and a recent report that had been issued by the center on January 15, 2013.  By the way, enslavers (such as communists and socialists), who are bad people, try to call and label falsely "conservative" as people who are on the "far right" and who should be considered bad people, even though, as I know and teach, "conservatives" are really the "center" of the country, upholding the ideas that were the basis for the founding of the country.  The "Combating Terrorism Center," which is a so-called "think tank" at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, New York, issued the report that, for one, pushed the idea that "conservatives" and similar persons (such as "libertarians") can be thought of as being like people who are members of the white-supremacy movement and on the "far right," who are racists and worse.  In addition, the Combating Terrorism Center" through the report pushed the idea that "conservatives" and such live in the past (holding on to old ideas about, for instance, the federal government and what it should be) while "liberals" live in the future (being "future oriented" and "progressive").  What the Combating Terrorism Center did was push lies and crap, like that which you could expect to come from communists.  Remember: The Rules of Nature and the Rules of Man, such as the rules that govern bad people, never change and will never change--bad people who like to be enslavers will always exist and must be blocked from accomplishing their goals.  So what the story shows is that you have to now worry more about the goodness of U.S. military, since people tied to the U.S. Military Academy are outwardly pushing the ways of enslavism (particularly communism) on the country, degrading the people who uphold the ways and rules of The United States Constitution.  (By the way, I have for several years reported that, in essence, General Colin Powell, who is a retired U.S. general, is an enemy of the country, since he lies about what he is, calling himself a "Republican," but he supports Barack Obama (a Democrat or, really, a communist and what is worse than a communist is) and the ways of communism.)

    Now I get around to something that I did not get around to in the previous edition of T.H.A.T..  On January 7, 2013, the Detroit Free Press had a bit of information about a woman named Gloria Pall, who had recently died (Hammerstein, B.J.  "Names+Faces: 'Briefly.'"  Detroit Free Press, 7 January 2013, p. 2C.), and the article reported that she had been involved in television, such as with a television show shown in San Francisco, California, in the 1950s, but the article did not give much information so I decide to track down more.  I found some old television articles, and I now pass along what I found in the articles.  In December 1954, Gloria Pall began her job as a television movie host for KABC-TV in San Francisco, California, and she played a character called "Voluptua" (and Voluptua was the name of the program).  The show had her wearing a pajama top and lounging on a couch.  Basically, then, Gloria Pall was 25 years of age, was five-foot-nine-inches tall, and had measurements of 39-24-37.  The program was shown on Wednesday evenings starting at 9:30 p.m.  The best that I can determine is the show started to run on Wednesday, December 15, 1954, and went through Wednesday, January 26, 1955 (she was fired on February 2, 1955), and the show ended because there had been complaints from some people who thought she was too suggestive sexually, which certainly would be considered highly tame in comparison with what television has today (much of which is crap).  Gloria Pall died on December 30, 2012, which, you should see, is about 58 years after the show had appeared on television.

    And, finally, I get around to something that I have put off for a while.  On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, a well-known sports-related personality of the Detroit (Michigan, U.S.A.)/Windsor (Ontario, Canada) area died, and that person was Budd Lynch.  Budd Lynch was a Canadian citizen and a U.S. citizen on the day he died; he had started out as a Canadian citizen, born in Windsor in 1917.  He fought as a Canadian soldier in World War II, and in 1949, he became an employee of the Detroit Red Wings organization, which would last up till his death; he began as an announcer for Detroit Red Wings broadcasts on radio and television, and he ended his time with the organization as the public-address announcer at the games played in Detroit.  I have here a special history note that obituaries did not cover.  On Monday, October 15, 1951, Princess Elizabeth and her husband (the Duke of Edinburgh) visited Windsor, and from there, it was the first time, she saw real U.S. skyscrapers, seeing those of Detroit from the shore of the Detroit River on the Windsor side, and a small portion of the visit was telecast to American viewers on NBC-TV and ABC-TV.  The telecast was considered a first--being the first international telecast.  Doing the commentary for the visit was Budd Lynch.  Incidentally, in the summer of 1959, Queen Elizabeth and her husband would tour the Great Lakes on The Britannia, visiting such places as the Detroit/Windsor area, the Port Huron (Michigan)/Sarnia (Ontario) area, and Chicago.

    I am writing this paragraph in the morning of Monday, February 4, 2013, and I am writing this paragraph while I am somewhat listening to the second hour of The Frank Beckmann Show (over the Internet); I started to listen to The Frank Beckmann Show late in the first hour, after I had finished shoveling--yes, with a shovel--about 500 feet of lane, when Frank  Beckmann and some guy from the Detroit Free Press were talking about the commercials that had been shown during the Super Bowl telecast the previous day.  Here, I am going to talk about the Super Bowl telecast.  For the most part, Frank Beckmann and his guest from the Detroit Free Press talked a bunch of fluff about the commercials shown during the Super Bowl television--they did not mention that, in essence, almost all the commercials failed to sell products.  I was impressed with almost no commercials aired during the Super Bowl telecast; in fact, this morning, I cannot remember most of the products being pitched.  There is a rule--If the viewers see a commercial and then cannot remember the product, the commercial has failed.  Almost all the people involved in the making of the commercials--probably young people--probably thought their high-action, violence, loud, in-your-face, or crude commercials were so wonderful, and that shows the state of the advertising community, and it is not good.  I remember the Budweiser commercial with the horse, which was one of the few likable commercials shown the entire night, and the Tide commercial is somewhat remorable.  Oh, one commercial shown late in the broadcast focused on two guys who were maybe going to be involved in making a commercial, and they ended up pitching some ideas to another guy, and the commercial made me feel it was showning how almost all the people involved in making the other commercials probably made their commercials--concerned with what flash they were going to show and with whom they might get to work and unconcerned about the product--and this morning, I do not remember what product was being sold in this commercial.  Yes, I saw car commercials, but I have no idea what the cars were, and I saw the Go Daddy commercial, which was crap of the highest degree and highly disgusting and creepy, urging me in the future to never get involved with Go Daddy.  Most of the commercials shown during the Super Bowl production were not the only things that failed to sell a product.  The half-time show featured a singer called Beyonce, and her production and performance were forgettable.  Beyonce may have swung her hair around and shook her body (which could use a little more in the way of breasts), but she failed in the singing (if it could be called singing) and failed to sell any song--a singer works to sell a song, which people might buy.  Nothing that might be called music that was tied to Beyonce inspired me to listen to any recording that she might have out or inspired me to buy any recording.  Beyonce might have had a lot of flash, but the flash sold nothing.  Too bad the power at the stadium did not go out during her performance.  During the game, as you may know, the electric power in about half the stadium when out, so there was a delay for about thirty-four minutes.  Right after the power went out, some of the broadcasters involved in the game showed how shallow they are.  Steve Tasker came on camera first, and he rambled along with nonsense, and then Solomon Wilcots came on and fared much better.  Later, Jim Nantz made an idiot comment, saying something like--the fans remained calm.  Okay, did Jim Hantz think, when the lights went down, people were going to rush to the exits in fright (though half of the stadium was still lighted)?  Incidentally, The Super Bowl Today program, which had aired before the Super Bowl game started, was boring--there were too many predictions and guessing pieces about what was going to be seen during the game, and there was a focus on only a couple players, and a New Orleans music segment with Branford Marsalis should not have been made, considering earlier in the day, CBS-TV had already had a one-hour program--a pandering piece for the blacks in New Orleans--about the music scene in New Orleans (which was hosted by Wynton Marsalis).  And that is enough of that, and now I go off to my document entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama (Part Two) and type in some of the idiot crap that Barack Obama spoke during an interview with Scott Pelley during The Super Bowl Today, such as the bit in which he put down the medical system in the country (again).  Yes, I have to go and expose more of a hideous mind--that of the ugly Barack Hussein Obama.

    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!
