Announcement #1

Since I published the previous edition of T.H.A.T., news
has showed up showing that Barack Obama is working to
set up a system in which he can censor the news people, especially
those who are not supportive of him and the ways of Sharia and communism
and the like.  To learn what Barack Obama has been doing since January 2009,
you should see my document entitled Fairness?: A Guide for the Individual
Woman and the Individual Man in the United States of America, which
can be reached by using this Fairness link.

Announcement #2

On Saturday, March 1, 2014, Russia began an invasion of
Ukraine, and that is bad, and it is another hint that Russia is working
to create a Soviet Union-type thing, and yet on Saturday, March 1, 2014,
Barack Obama skipped a meeting of his national security team that took
place at the White House, and that shows more evidence of
the rottenness of Barack Obama (Johnson, Bridget.  "Obama Skips
National Security Meeting on Russian Invasion of Ukraine."
PJ Media, 1 March 2014; Sullivan, Tim, and Vladimir
Isachenkov.  "Russian troops take over Crimea region."
Detroit Free Press, 2 March 2014, p. 8A.).

Announcement #3

On Wednesday, March 5, 2014, did your favorite television
newscast withhold the truth from you about a hearing of the U.S.
House of Representatives Oversight & Government Reform
Committee involving a woman name Lois Lerner and the IRS on that day?
If your favorite television newscast did not report that
Lois Lerner (formerly the head of a unit in the IRS that is involved in
issuing, for instance, 501(c)(4) status to groups) refused to answer a number
of questions about what was and is being called the "IRS scandal" about suppressing
political speech of "conservative" groups, mostly saying--"On
the advice of council, I respectfully exercise my Fifth Amendment right
and decline to answer that question."--then your favorite television newscast
is at the very least not good, since the newscast hid or did not report some of
rottenness of and corruption in the Barack Obama administration.
If your television newscast reported that U.S. Representative Elijah
Cummings (a Democratic related to Maryland) was not allowed to speak at
one point in the hearing and played audio of Elijah Cummings speaking out loudly
as part of a protest on the day, your television newscast lied to you;
Elijah Cummings was allowed to speak while the hearing was in session
and did not, and then he tried to push a statement out after the hearing
 had been closed correctly (which, I say, he hoped would be used as a "sound bite"
 in a news story that would incorrectly report what happened.

Announcement #4

I report that the Environmental Protection Agency of the federal government
is a communist-controlled entity, especially under the direction of Barack Obama,
I report that the EPA has offshoots of sorts that are a part of state governments,
and I can see rottenness in the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality
and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, which are being guided
at least in part by the communist agenda to take control of the United States
of America, such as through environmental laws put together to support the
false idea of manmade global warming.  To learn about some bad of Michigan
Department of Environmental Quality and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources,
visit the website for "Bakers Green Acres" (of Mark Baker and
family), where there is information about, for instance, a court case
focusing on the Invasive Special Act (of Michigan) and "feral
swine," and also see videos related to the case and Mark Baker on YouTube,
such as "Baker vs. Michigan DNR Court Hearing" (February 26, 2014), which
shows off the rotten nature of a man named Hal Martin, who works as
an attorney for the State of Michigan (his conduct in the video is at
the very least inappropriate).  Oh, you will learn how the DNR in Michigan
has been listing bad  pigs as those with curly tails and pigs with straight tails.
(Keep in mind--Although a person may call the self a "Republican," it
does not mean the person is a good person, such as a "conservative,"
as Governor Rick Snyder has shown, by acting like a socialist, though
he calls himself a "Republican.")

- - - T.H.A.T., Edition No. 119 - - -

    It is getting hard to fine anything new that is good on television.  Since I published the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I have not seen much good on television.  On Sunday, February 9, 2014, I did see the theatrical movie entitled Toy Story 3 for the first time (I guessed the little girl was going to end up with the toys), but the movie is a theatrical movie and not something made for television, and television is the focus of each edition of T.H.A.T..  You should already guess I am going to show up a lot of the bad that television has had recently in this edition of T.H.A.T..  It is getting to the point that, in essence, I now regularly use editions of T.H.A.T. to teach about the bad that television is today as a rule.

    On Sunday, February 9, 2014, I caught something bad while watching Toy Story 3, which was being broadcast by ABC-TV.  ABC-TV ran a promotional announcement for what was going to broadcast on Tuesday, February 11, 2014, in prime time.  There was going to be a marathon showing of some episodes of the television series entitled The Goldbergs (the new series and not the series of the 1940s and 1950s).  An announcer said that the night was going to be--"The greatest night in the history of television."  Obviously, that was an oversell.  What made the presentation rotten was one line spoken by a character in the series during the running of the promotional announcement, and that line was--"...too tight in the crotchular region."  I ask--Is that some of the so-called funny that the series has?  I state that it was not funny, especially funny enough to be part of "The greatest night in the history of television."  And the rotten line was presented during a showing of Toy Story 3.

    On Monday, February 10, 2014, CBS-TV presented rottenness through its CBS This Morning.  I have to back up to the previous edition of T.H.A.T..  In the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I passed along information about an episode of Moyers & Company, which is hosted by Bill Moyers (the communist supporter and the pusher of ignorance), and my focus was on Bill McKibben, who for years has been an "environmentalist" and who received part of his education from Harvard University (which pushes out communism and idiot people out into the world) and who was pushing nonsense about manmade global warming, and, in fact, I reported that, through having watched the program and my having done later research, I got the impression that Bill McKibben is mentally ill.  Anyone to pushes the idea of manmade global warming--which has been proven to be a lie--is a rotten person.  On CBS This Morning, for February 10, 2014, the hosts--Charlie Rose (clearly a supporter of communism), Norah O'Donnell, and Gayle King--interviewed Elizabeth Kolbert, who is the author of The Sixth Extinction.  What I saw of the interview was idiocy and rottenness, pushing that, for example, man could be causing the extinction of man by using carbon-based fuels.  For one, Elizabeth Kolbert said--"Dinosaurs, is a pretty firm scientific consensus that the dinosaurs were killed off by an asteroid impact.  And now you often here scientists--and I have heard scientists say--we are the asteroid, humans are the asteroid, we're changing the planet so rapidly that we're having that sort of...that sort of effect...."  For one, Charlie Rose said--"What are you really saying here that we are going to become extinct perhaps because of what we're doing to the planet?  And what is it about the way the planet is going to extinct us?"  It was all idiot questions and idiot answers.  It was rottenness on television.

    On Monday, February 10, 2014, in the evening and, in fact, at about 7:45 p.m. (Detroit time), I happened to tune into Channel 56.1 (a subchannel of WTVS-HD, Detroit), which carries the World Channel.  What was running was an episode of the anthology series called Independent Lens, and the episode was about "soul food" and black Americans.  Almost immediately, I was exposed to a man saying that so-called good food or access to good food was not available to blacks in the United States of America as a rule because of "racism."  I state that that statement comes from a mind that pushes shit!  In this case, it was a black man--so it was a black man with a mind full of shit.  (I was not running a recording machine, so I am unaware who the man was, and I am not going to waste the time to hunt down the name of the man.)  The part of the show that I saw pushed as good--a vegetarian diet.  Overall, I got the impression that the piece was a racist piece or a socialistic piece, mentioning such an idea as "food security" (which is one of latest buzz groups of words being pushed by race baiters and such).  I report that "man" (a man or a woman) is an omnivore, which is an animal that eats plants and other animals, which is the way it has been for centuries and centuries.  I say that the people who push the idea that man should not eat meat are mentally ill, wishing, for one, not to kill other animals, which goes against nature.  By the way, I  have noticed a lot of women who are "vegetarians" look skinny and weak and look as if they lack power, such as enough to make it through the birthing process and be useful in protecting their children from danger.  In addition, what bothers me today is--What is really good food or bad food?  I think rotten people have been trying to push people away from meat and eggs and other things that are good for "man."  I say that collard greens, corn bread, chicken, watermelon, and sweat-potato pie are good foods (I have been eating the stuff since I was a little boy); the program gave me the impression that the foods are bad.  I did not see much of the program, but what little I saw was, for the most part, foolishness, and the "racism" comment was shit.

    So, right from the start, you have been given three examples of rottenness on television.

    Thought and commentary: Incidentally, I know several reasons why blacks seem to have weight problems, even when young.  Busing is one big problem--most young blacks get bused, sometimes for many hours a day, to school, instead of being able to walk or run to school as I did when I was young (the busing business has been the rule for black children since at least the 1970s).  Busing children is bad for children, since children do not use their muscles and use up food energy when growing up as much as they should.  And then when the children grow up, they have a tendency--in this day and age--be sedentary.  I do not buy the idea that "soul food" is bad, which I got the impression was being pushed in the episode of Independent Lens.  I say that people seem to be going after the wrong cause of obesity in blacks.

    In this edition, I get to act like a "television reviewer," a type of person who does not really exist anymore in the main media, unlike in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, when such persons were commonplace, from Variety to local newspapers, and my reviews in this paragraph cover programs produced for Detroit-area television viewers by, basically, local television stations.  On February, 2, 2014, WXYZ-HD, Channel 7.1, started up a weekly midday sports program on Sundays, and it is called 7 Sports Cave.  It is a one-hour program that runs from 11:00 a.m. to noon, and the usual host is Brad Galli (a staffer of the station), but there might be a substitute host from time to time, such as on February 16, 2014, when Tom Leyden hosted.  Each show has two co-hosts of sorts.  The co-hosts for February 2, 2014, were Matt Dery (of "Detroit Sports" 105.1 FM) and Mike Stone (of 97.1 "The Ticket"), and the co-hosts for February 9, 2014, were Dave Birkett (of Detroit Free Press) and John Niyo (of The Detroit News), and the co-hosts for February 16, 2014, were Mike Stone and John Niyo.  7 Sports Cave was just there--it was not bad, and it was not necessarily good, and it is basically a one-hour filler program focusing on sports (though on the episode for February 16, 2014, John Niyo was shown in "soft focus" at one point because the camera was out of focus).  On Sunday, February 16, 2014, WADL-HD, Channel 38.1, aired an episode of Hood R.A.T.T. Makeover, the debut episode.  The program was hosted by Jarrod Henderson, and the co-host was Rachonne Baisden.  In this half-hour show, Jarrod Henderson (who is a hair dresser and a makeup artist of sorts) and Rachonne Baisden did a style makeover (clothes and hair and makeup) of a woman named Charlene R. (of Detroit).  The show plugged along well enough for a low-budget program, and technically it looked good (the ending credits showed that the production team is small).  Oh, I report that "R.A.T.T." stands for "Running Around Town Tacky."  For the episode shown, Robert Engram was the executive producer, and Heather Shovein was the producer.  It seems Hood R.A.T.T. Makeover is a weekly series, which is going to be shown at 7:00 p.m. on Sundays for a while.  Also on Sunday, February 16, 2014, WXYZ-HD, Channel 56.1, aired a half-hour special called Lift As You Climb, and it was a program aimed at "blacks" as a "Black History Month" presentation (February is "Black History Month"), and the program was hosted by Gerald W. Smith.  In essence, Lift As You Climb was a socialistic-based show, and it spotlighted five blacks of the Detroit area--Alexx Post, Terrence Thompson, Shawn Blanchard, Jocelyn Rainey, and Gail Perry-Mason, a collection of artists and educators and authors and non-profit-entity people (or fluff people), who are not really involved in trying to get industries and businesses, such as machine shops and other money-making entities, going in Detroit.  Besides the general content of the program, I was bothered by the title of the program--Lift As You Climb.  The title pushed the socialistic nonsense that you must spend your time lifting others up and giving to them help all the time, such as by volunteering all the time and being involved in non-for-profit entities.  To me, the title teaches--Always work to take care of others first, before you care of the self, and always use your time to lift others up.  If more people cared for themselves and did not expect, for instance, the federal government to care for them, there would not be so much need for people working in non-profit entities, handing out food and food stamps and whatever, and the Detroit community would not be dead.  On Friday, February 21, 2014, WXYZ-HD, Channel 7.1, ran a one-hour special entitled The Ultimate Wedding Show, which was hosted by Erin Nicole, and, in essence, it was a one-hour infomercial that promoted local businesses involved in the wedding business, such as Bellisario Florist, Lucido Fine Jewelry, Renew Hair and Skin, Emerald City Designs, Christine's Cakes & Pasteries, and Arthur Murray Dance Studio.  This type of program has been an annual event for several years, and since the series of annual programs is nothing more than a series of annual infomercials (often having the same businesses in focus), the program on February 21, 2014, came off as bland.

    Now it is time for some reviews of broadcast-network television shows.  On Tuesday, February 25, 2014, NBC-TV aired an episode of About a Boy starting at about 9:00 p.m. (Detroit time), and I watched for a bit.  I saw nothing funny.  The first two gals pushed on screen--a gal with a cello (played by Leslie Bibb) and a neighbor (played Minnie Driver) to the main male character (played by David Walton)--were gals who looked somewhat like guys, since, in essence, they had no breasts and no shape.  They are the kind of gals who might make womanized guys happy, since they would not be physically intimating.  Benjamin Stockham played a boy, and the producers of the show gave the boy a somewhat feminized appearance and not that of a boy who might play in the woods and wrestle around in the grass with other boys his age.  The series is set in San Francisco, California, which is a socialistic-based city and which, in essence, is a rotten city in real life.  NBC-TV aired an episode of a series called Growing Up Fisher after it had aired the episode of About a Boy.  It was a little better than the episode of About a Boy.  A person could get the feeling that both shows are aimed at children, given the title of About a Boy has "boy" in it and somewhat featured a boy played by Benjamin Stockham and given Growing Up Fisher seemed to focus a lot a boy in the story, such as at the end when he meets a girl neighbor, but I do not recommend either show for children.  By the way, early in story line of Growing Up Fisher, a character played by Jenna Elfman was sitting with her son, and she brought up the idea of her getting a water bra, and she cupped her breasts (rather small things) and lifted them up and then dropped them while saying--"New mom, old mom."  That is not for young viewers.  I do have to note that both shows were not aired in what is called the "family hour" or used to be called the "family hour" (8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time).  So who are the two series aimed at?  I wonder.  Or what is the true purpose of the shows?  I wonder.  At 10:00 p.m., on Tuesday, February 25, 2014, ABC-TV pushed out the first episode of a series entitled Mind Games (or, as the title was shown officially on the screen, mindgames), which is a one-hour series.  The show failed an old television rule.  The characters were not people that I would want to show up in my living room on a weekly basis, especially the character played by Steve Zahn.  On Wednesday, February 26, 2014, ABC-TV offered up to viewers the first episode of a series entitled Mixology, and based on the what I saw, I can report that the series will be designed to take place on one particular day  in a bar-like place and focus on the lives of some young men and young women, and that means that, from week to week, the guys and the gals are going to be wearing the same clothes, except when they take off their clothes to get closely involved with each other, maybe in the alley.  I wonder--Why would young people (who spend a lot of time in bar-like places like that shown in the episode) want to see a bunch of young people, many of whom were shallow and, in the case of the guys, feminized, in a bar-like place from week to week in a television series.  I got the impression from the shows listed so far in this paragraph that, for the most part, the guys were purposely made to be feminized and wimpy (viewers even got to see a guy being all emotional about this previous relationship while talking with a gal at the bar), and the boys were not boys who might grow up to protect women or be able to protect women well--they would probably be useless men.  To catch production credits, I was exposed to portions of the first episode of Survivor: Cagayan, which was broadcast on Wednesday, February 26, 2014, by CBS-TV, and at the end of the episode, I learned some supposedly smart gal (a "brain") dumped out all the rice, and I am glad I missed seeing much of the collection of idiots and useless guys and gals that the series is putting forth to viewers, especially Morgan McLeod, an ex-NFL cheerleader, who--as she noted--can get men to do whatever she wants them to (she will make a rotten wife for some feminized man, since, for one, she will always be creating crap in the relationship and would not be working for "the team"--the family team--really (a good man--a real man--should be smart enough to avoid her)).

    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).

    For a bunch of months, WMYD-HD, Channel 20.1, has been running the same promos for the weekday newscast, which runs at 10:00 p.m., and a promo will have either the main anchor or one of the reporters talking about, for example, setting up relationships with viewers and working to get viewers to trust them, and, in one case, local-reporter Dave Leval talks about emotions and presenting emotions (his promo opens with--"Emotions sell a story.").  WMYD-HD is, in essence, the little guy in the local newscast business in the Detroit area (in fact, the newscast is actually produced outside the state), and the big guys with local newscasts at WJBK-HD (Channel 2.1), WDIV-HD (Channel 4.1), and WXYZ-HD (Channel 7.1), but I say that the big guys do the same as Channel 20.1 does, presenting fluff and emotions and useless news, such as car crashes and murders, and it has become that the most important news seems to be weather news.  Oh, the big guys do traffic reports regularly on weekdays, up to every ten minutes in the morning newscasts.  Really, local newscasts are throwaway things in this day and age, and television newscasters and reporters do nothing of value as a rule--when you really understand what is going on in the country today, which is it under attack by communists, such as Barack Obama, from within.  For instance, local television reporters and newscasters have not covered the news that Barack Obama is acting unconstitutionally and that the country is in a constitutional crisis and that all the Democrats in the U.S. Congress are supporting Barack Obama's bad actions and some of the Republicans in the U.S. Congress are supporting Barack Obama's bad actions.  Certainly, local television reporters and newscasters have not and do not report what is somewhat like what Betsy McCaughey said on The Mark Levin Show (a nationally syndicated radio show) on Tuesday, February 11, 2014.  Here are a few things Betsy McCaughey said in relation to Barack Obama's acting unconstitutionally by deciding to not enforce a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 till 2016, and the provision is about medium-sized companies' having to provide health-care insurance to full-time employees:
    "Yesterday, he [Barack Obama] announced a delay in the employer mandate--the requirement that's written out in the Affordable Care Act very clearly in black and white--that beginning in January 2014, employers with 50 or more full-time workers have to provide the one-size-fits-all-government-designed health plan.  Well, he's delayed it before, and now he's delayed it again, and he portrayed it as a mere tweaking, but this mandate delay, it was a political act--a cynical political act--and rule of law and taxpayers be damned.  It's gonna add a, about twenty-five-billion dollars the first year to the tab for this Obama health law, and taxpayers will have to absorb that cost.  But even worse is the cost to all Americans in losing the rule of law, in, in watching our right to self-government, the protection of the rule of law ripped away from us."
    "...It's very frightening to see that only one par, that only one party now even articulates any commitment to The Constitution.  During the President's re, recent State of the Union message when he vowed that he would use his pen and his telephone to take action when Congress refuses to, what he was saying is he was gonna govern by executive fiat.  The Democrats stood up and applauded.  What is their role in this system of government?  They are part of the law-making branch of government--that they have failed to stand up for The Constitution, even though they took an oath to uphold it."
    "...Let me point out the most-dangerous provision in this tre, U.S. Treasury, IRS regulation.  Of course, it was many, many, many pages, but on page 125, 126, it said that employers with 50 to 99 workers who want to qualify for this delayed mandate must sign a statement filed with the IRS that they have not changed the size of their workforce or the hours of their workers, ah, in order to get around Obamacare, in order to accommodate the law or avoid the costs of the law, because last year, so many employers--in the newspapers, on television, on radio--every day were complaining about the cost of Obamacare and how they were pushing down the hours of their workers or were refusing to hire more people because they had to get around this very costly law.  Well, now with the mid-term elections coming, the Obama administration wants to gag those employers and make it too costly for them to speak out about the cost of this law, the impact of this law on their hiring practices.  So they [the Obama administration people] are literally threatening them with the penalty of perjury!"
    "Nothing in American law bars an employer from making a business judgment to reduce his workforce.  But the administration now warns that 'big brother' will be deciding whether a business has a legitimate reason for that change or did it to avoid Obamacare."
    Did your favorite television news reporter or television new anchor--who you supposedly "trust"--such as Stephen Clark (the socialist at least), Dave Leval, Carmen Harlan, or Huel Perkins, present in any way the themes presented by Betsy McCaughey on The Mark Levin Show?  The probably did not.  They are useless people and what they do is useless.  They are low-level thinkers.  They are even your enemies because they do not report what truth you need to know to avoid being "enslaved" to the communists now working to completely take over the country and turn the government of the country into an "enslavism" form of government.

   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.

    So did your favorite television newscast or newscaster present you with the information that I now present, which was presented in an article by Politico, which is a supporter of Barack Obama and the Democratic Party?  I note that the information was probably presented by Politico, because the people at Politico wanted to show readers (particularly "liberals") evidence of another attack on the United States of America by people who want to change it fundamentally, and the people at Politico wanted to make liberal-type readers feel good.  On February 12, 2014, Politico published on the Internet a story entitled "The plot to make Big Food pay" (Evich, Helena Bottemiller.  "The plot to make Big Food pay."  Politico, 12 February 2014, 11:00 a.m. EST.), and the story noted that a law firm in Chicago--the Valorem Law Group--is pushing the governments of 16 states to find a way to get, for example, fast-food companies to cough up money to pay for health care of obese people, who had--it is being pushed--become obese because the fast-food companies made or are making the people obese.  I see it as extortion and a scam!  By the way, remember--Chicago is a big communistic-based city today.  The 16 states are--California, Mississippi, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Minnesota, Oregon, North Carolina, and Nevada.  Yes, it is another extortion plot, pushed along by rotten people, especially since I believe one reason for the obesity problem, especially in blacks, is "busing," which has blocked many children since the 1960s from walking and running to school and using their muscles and using up energy (one reason that unnecessary busing of children began is "liberals" (such as black radicals) wanted to get children moved to so-called better schools, which used money that could have been used to make bad schools better).  I bet your favorite television newscast did not even hint at the subject of presented by Politico.

    So, did you happen to catch the interview done by Charles Barkley for the TNT television network of Barack Obama on Sunday, February 16, 2014?  At one point, Barack Obama showed is hatred for "whites" and is work to help only blacks.  To see some of what Barack Obama said during the interview, see the entry for February 16, 2014, in my document entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama (Part Two), which can be reached by using this Quotes2 link.

    So did your favorite television newscast report on what was said by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in an article published by The New York Times on February 24, 2014, focusing on state attorneys generals?  In the article, Eric Holder was urging state attorneys general to not uphold the laws in their states and to determine for themselves what laws that they should and should not enforce.  In essence, Eric Holder wanted state attorneys generals to be dictators in the states and not follow their duties and to violate their oaths of office.  The urging done by Eric Holder is unprecedented, and Eric Holder showed himself to be a person who pushes lawlessness.  If your favorite television newscast did not report on Eric Holder's action, it shows your favorite television newscast is at least useless and at worst rotten through and through.  When a country becomes that in which politicians can pick and choose the laws that they will enforce or not enforce on a whim, you have a rotten country, and when a country becomes that in which a individual politician can, in essence, make law on a whim, you have a rotten country. If Barack Obama were a good man--a good U.S. president--Barack Obama would fire Eric Holder immediately, and since Barack Obama has not fired Eric Holder, it is another example that shows that Barack Obama is rotten, morally and more.

    On Thursday, February 27, 2014, Barack Obama held a press event, and the event was to announce the existence of a new initiative entitled "My Brother's Keeper."  The initiative (involving money gotten in some way from businesses and foundations, for example) was designed to improve young black males and young Hispanic males in the country, and, basically, Barack Obama's initiative was not designed to help, for instance, whites, American Indians, asians, and Eskimos who are young males, and it was not designed to help any women.  On the day of the announcement, Don Lemon (a black male) of CNN (the television network) said on CNN: "...By taking this on as an initiative, as he has promised to do, even beyond his presidency, he can take the politics out of it.  And he doesn't have to worry about some conservative or someone you may be a bigoted or racist saying--Hey, why don't you do things for white people, you're the president of everybody.  We get that.  He also has a responsibility as a black man to help that from which he came, and that's from the black community.  It was amazing.  It was emotional.  And it was the most candid I've seen the President...."  That statement shows up the rottenness within the mind of Don Lemon, and one part of the rottenness was he was willing to dismiss Barack Obama's racist action, working only for young black men and young Hispanic men.  And Don Lemon spoke crap, given Barack Obama did not grow up in some inner-city black community--Barack Obama spend much time in Hawaii and in Indonesia, living with socialists and communists and other such rotten people, and, yes, his growing up also included teachings related to Islam or Sharia (in Sharia Law-based countries, women are considered second-class citizens).

    So, did your favorite television news entity report honorably this story?  In 2010, two high-school students at a school in the Morgan Hill Unified School District in California were made by school officials to turn T-shirts--having an image of the American flag--that they were wearing inside out, and it all happened on what was "Cinco de Mayo" day (a holiday in Mexico and not the United States of America).  A court case about the event was started.  Finally, on February 28, 2014, a three-judge panel--of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California--made a ruling related to the case, and it said that the school was right in getting the students to hide the image of the flag of the United States of America on Cinco De Mayo because it may have incited violence amongst students, and one group was most likely to be students with no ties to Mexico (such as white students), and one group was most likely to be students with ties to Mexico (being, for example, Mexican citizens).  In essence, the decision of the three-judge panel put down the United States of America and promoted Mexico, and, in essence, foreigners were given priority over Americans by an American federal court.  And so a ban on displaying the American flag on clothing remains in effect in at least that school district in California, and there is no bad on showing off things related to Cinco de Mayo of Mexico.  [Dolan, Maura.  "Fight over school's American flag T-shirt ban likely to continue."  Los Angeles Times, 28 February 2014, 8:21 a.m.]

    On Sunday, March 9, 2014, viewers around country got a chance to see the first episode of a series called Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, such as on Fox TV (it was shown on a number of networks).  I turned on the television to see the program, and I was exposed to Barack Hussein Obama introducing the program.  That pissed me off--A highly rotten man was given a chance to look nice and pleasant for the American public, though the man is a piece of shit of a man.  I watched the program long enough to see the opening credits.  I saw, for example, Seth MacFarland (a communist supporter) was an executive producer, and I saw Brannon Braga (who worked on the Star Trek franchise for a while) was an executive producer, and I could see the show was going to have good special effects.  When the opening credits were done, I turned off the television (later, I would turn it on to see Toy Story on videotape, which had been picked up at a bargain-basement store for almost no money).  I asked myself--What rotten person wanted to have Barack Hussein Obama--a highly rotten man--introduce Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey?  People used Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey to push the false image of Barack Hussein Obama to viewers, especially young viewers.  That was rotten, rotten, rotten!  I  will not watch any of the remainder of the series, and I hope you do not.

    Here is an announcement--The next edition of T.H.A.T. will have more information related to my review of Detroit Remember When: The History of Detroit Television, which was originally broadcast on WTVS-HD (Detroit Public Television), Channel 56.1, on December 2, 2013, and the talk will show up the rottenness of some of the managers at Detroit Public Television, such as Fred Nahhat.

    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.

    Note: I have made a slight change to a section of T.H.A.T. #85 (which was originally published on May 10, 2011) that focused on Doris Eaton Travis, and you can see the change by using this link--T.H.A.T. #85.

Stay well!
