"Shared Responsibility Payment"--this is a reason
to hate all Democrats (especially the politicians), many
upper-level politicians of Republican Party, and two-thirds of
U.S. Supreme Court.  The payment is what the federal
government thinks people who do not buy government-
approved health insurance should pay as a tax or a fine.
It has come about through the Patient Protection and
Affordable Care Act of 2010.  It is rottenness of the
highest degree.  The only way for a good person
to destroy a bad person is to hate the bad person.
It is a rule of life!  I promote hate of rotten people,
especially Barack Hussein Obama, a promoter of
Sharia and communism and a killer.  I will not share
in paying for jackass sex-change-appearance people,
like that "Jenner" defect of nature, or foreigners, especially
illegal aliens, who are criminals, despite what shit-head
Barack Obama wants you to believe.  Hate the enemy!
I state again--I promote hate against rotten people!

    Devin Scillian, Huel Perkins, Carmen Harlan, Monica Gayle, Stephen Clark, and Carolyn Clifford--this are only some of the many useless people of the world, particularly the useless people who happen to be newscasters on television stations in the Detroit area or Michigan or the United States of America.  Generally speaking, newscasters are idiots, and many are communists and socialists, whose lives are spent passing along useless information, such as about car crashes and killings, while they let real news about life and the world affecting the lives of millions and millions go unreported.  For example, did your favorite newscaster on television in the Detroit area present information that showed Hillary Clinton lied about events related to the "Benghazi Killings Scandal" during a hearing in the U.S. House of Representatives on October 22, 2015 [information of which can be found in my document entitled The "Benghazi Killings Scandal": A Short Information-and-Status Report, which can be reached through the Benghazi link]?  Your favorite newscaster probably did not.  By the way, on October 23, 2015, the Detroit Free Press, a communistic rag published daily in Detroit, reported that Hillary Clinton testified the previous day about the Benghazi incident [Klapper, Bradley, Matthew Daly.  "Facing GOP-led inquiry, Clinton seeks to close book on Benghazi." Detroit Free Press, 23 October 2015, pp. 2A.], but the article showed not how Hillary Clinton lied during the testimony process and passed along crap, and, in fact, the article worked to make it seem that Hillary Clinton had done no wrong, that investigations of the "Benghazi Killings Scandal" were all a sham, and that the Republicans were wasting taxpayer money to push on the investigations about Benghazi.  I state that, generally speaking, television news reporters and news anchors are people to look down on, doing a disservice to good people, those that know Democrats, especially those like Barack Hussein Obama, are rotten.

    Let me expose to you a very pretty yet very rotten woman.  On Sunday, October 25, 2015, I happened to tune into the opening part of This Week (the weekly political-news shows on ABC-TV), and I happened to catch a report about the previous night in which Katy Perry paraded Hillary Clinton out to a crowd involved in a rally for Hillary Clinton in Iowa.  Katy Perry is a supporter of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party in the United States of America, which is a party promoting enslavism, such as socialism and communism and even Sharia.  That makes Katy Perry a rotten woman, supporting rottenness.  Remember--Hillary Clinton has proven herself to be a rotten woman many times, only one time of which is reported on in the previous paragraph.  What makes Katy Perry really, really rotten is she paraded Hillary Clinton out to the crowd while wearing, in essence, the American flag--she had wrapped herself in the American flag.  It was a farce.  In fact, the entire scene was a farce, pushing the symbols of America, such as the red-white-and-blue idea.  The American flag does not stand for, for instance, communism and socialism and Sharia, and yet Katy Perry worked to tie the American flag to communism, socialism, and Sharia.  Katy Perry may have an incredibly great body, but Katy Perry is shit woman, given what is in her mind!

    Nationally distributed late-night talk shows have existed on broadcast networks since the 1950s, and over the years, most of the persons who hosted such shows were likable.  Three such hosts were Steve Allen, Jack Paar, and Johnny Carson.  The three men listed could be funny and could be serious and could be pleasant (on screen).  In the last three decades, the standards for a late-night talk-show-host position on television have gone to crap.  It seems Americans are willing to put up with rotten and ugly people on television on a regular basis.  By the way, mostly, when I talk about "ugly people," I talk about the personas of persons or the minds of persons.  A good example of my theme here is Stephen Colbert, who recently became the host of The Late Show for CBS-TV.  A person who is a good person can see the ugliness of Stephen Colbert--the ugliness shows and shows and shows.  There is nothing pleasant underneath the skin of Stephen Colbert, and he shows on a daily basis that he does not know how to be likable.  I have always said that, over time, the real nature of a person will indeed show up on the person's face.  What Stephen Colbert's mind is shows up each night that he is on CBS-TV, not that did not when he hosted The Daily Show on cable.  Add to that the idea that Stephen Colbert is an ugly man physically.  It often looks like he only has one ear, for example.  Stephen Colbert looks weird.  Ultimately, a good person can feel the anger and rage and hatred and rottenness of Stephen Colbert--it is hate comedy that he does.  Although past late-night television talk-show hosts for the broadcast networks might have been or could have been considered "liberal," what ugliness that might have been in their minds did not show up in such clear detail as the ugliness that is visible on Stephen Colbert constantly.  I see it.  Yet, people watch him, and that is a sign of the rottenness these days of Americans, especially the young--his target audience.

    The Detroit Free Press is a newspaper based at Detroit, Michigan, that promotes "enslavism," such as communism, socialism (which is temporarily restrained communism), fascism, and Sharia (The Quran and Islamic law and Allah), all of which are rotten.  Yet, on Saturday, October 17, 2015, the Detroit Free Press through two articles helped show up the rottenness of some people associated with television.  One article (Spangler, Todd.  "A-list stars donate to Gilbert." Detroit Free Press, 17 October 2015, pp. 2A and 5A.) focused on Melissa Gilbert, an actress recently mentioned in an edition of T.H.A.T., who is running to be a politician from Michigan--a "Democrat"--in the U.S. Congress.  Remember--In this day and age, every "Democrat" supports, for example, communism and Sharia.  That is a fact, given that is what the Democratic Party stands for, as recent history shows.  By the way, Melissa Gilbert wants you to vote for her, though she has been, in essence, a tax cheat.  She cannot take care of her finances properly, and yet she wants you to be involved in letting her run government finances.  The article showed up how Alec Baldwin, Jennifer Garner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Florence Henderson have donated to Melissa Gilbert's campaign.  That shows that, for instance, a woman who played a wholesome person on a television series called The Brady Bunch--Florence Henderson--is actually a supporter of communism and Sharia and a promoter violence and killing of non-followers of communism and Sharia.  Yes, Florence Henderson is rotten.  In addition, the article proves another television actress--Jennifer Garner--is rotten.  Keep that information in mind when you see Florence Henderson or Jennifer Garner.  By the way, for some time, the public has known Jeffrey Katzenberg (a movie producer) and Alec Baldwin (an actor) are highly rotten.  Another article in the Detroit Free Press was about a movie-theater film called Truth, which was set to debut on Friday, October 23, 2015 (Hanson, Holly.  "NAMES+FACES: 'No "Truth" ads on CBS.'"  Detroit Free Press, 17 October 2015, p. 3C.).  This article noted that CBS was not going to run ads for the movie, such as on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.  Remember--In real life, CBS-TV was involved in putting together a news report that was a lie about U.S. President George W. Bush--it was a made up story, and it was proven it was a made up story (some evidence of which was a type face on a document, which involved news anchor Dan Rather and 60 Minutes II).  It is not surprising CBS-TV would not want to promote the movie, but I have to show how rotten a man called Gil Schwartz (a spokesman for CBS-TV) is, given what the article presented as quoted material from Gil Schwartz.  For one, the article noted that Gil Schwartz made this statement--"...There are, in fact, too many distortions, evasions and baseless conspiracy theories to enumerate them all.  The film tries to turn gross errors of journalism and judgment into acts of heroism and martyrdom....".   That is flap doodle!  It is a conflict of thought and logic, too.  For one, are you going to tell me CBS-TV turned down the ads because the movie is working to make former CBS-TV news people--who were discredited--look like heroes or something good and CBS-TV did not like that?  CBS-TV has had ties to socialism and communism for decades, a big covering-up image for which was Walter Cronkite, a news anchor [Note: You are urged to see T.H.A.T. #65 to see proof of my statement, and that document can be reached through this T.H.A.T. #65 link.].

    So, guy and gals, at about 9:09 p.m. (Detroit time) on Saturday, October 17, 2015, I saw a commercial for Cadillac (the car) during the football game between Ohio State University and Penn State University on ABC-TV.  Remember--Cadillac is a part of General Motors Corporation, which ended with leaders beholden to Barack Obama, when he was instrumental in putting them in power during the car "crash" days early in the first term as the president (dictator) for Barack Obama.  The commercial was crap because it was used--I think--to promote a political theme--gayness!  The commercial was not really used to promote the car, such a luxury and power; it was used to promote gayness as goodness, as Cadillac sees it.  Cadillac--the commie (Barack Obama) car!  And that is the shit you get on television these days.

    On October 23, 2015, at about 3:17 p.m. (Detroit time), I was flipping through the broadcast channels of the Detroit area, mostly looking to see what was airing on the subchannel networks, such as GetTV, Cozi TV, and Retro TV, and I happened to stumble across Oprah Winfrey being interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres's syndicated daily talk show.  Almost immediately upon tuning in, I heard Oprah Winfrey push out the nonsense that success to her can be equated with having a residence with a lot of trees.  Yes, Oprah Winfrey pushed out the nonsense that she feels having a lot of trees is a sign of success.  Bullshit!  I can prove that Oprah Winfrey is an elitist and a pusher of communism and socialism, such as that rotten stuff upheld by and practiced by Barack Obama, and Oprah Winfrey has shown herself in public to be a black racist (as can be seen in evidence presented at the website for The Hologlobe Press).  Oprah Winfrey is about money and power!  Also Oprah Winfrey--who is about what Barack Obama is--is a pusher of the faux idea that manmade climate change is killing the plant.  So, Oprah Winfrey talked about trees with Ellen.  I know a lot of people who live with so many trees around their residence that they have almost no yard.  I guess, Oprah Winfrey, they are richer than you are.  I do not believe Oprah Winfrey would uphold that idea.

    Up to this point in this to document, I have focused on bad women in the United States of America, but I do have something good to talk about--though it is about something that is fiction.  On Monday, October 26, 2015, CBS-TV aired the first episode of a new series called Supergirl.  The first episode--known as the pilot episode--came off as a good pilot episode, and one reason for that is the casting of the main character.  Melissa Benoist plays the main character, and she came off--when needed--as pleasant and likable, which is in a stark contrast to Rachel Bloom who plays the lead character for the series called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend for The CW network (Rachel Bloom's real persona shows through, and it is not nice or likable).  I know not the nature of the mind of actress Melissa Benoist, but at least Melissa Benoist's portrayal of Supergirl was pleasant--not bitchy or crazy or stupid.  If the scripts continue to be good for Supergirl, then the series will probably be worthwhile for quite a while and repeat days.

  Announcement for the novice again (reworked in August 2015): To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, go to Fox News Channel (which has to be treated as wishy-washy and suspect, showing signs of mostly supporting the Republician Party establishment, which is rotten), 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 (Note: 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 better places 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.  [Note: The Republican Party establishment has shown itself to be socialistic and communistic within the last few years, and only a few of the rotten people are U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, U.S. Senator John McCain, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie.]

    On Tuesday, October 13, 2015, and Wednesday, October 14, 2015, I was traveling in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and at 6:00 p.m. on the Tuesday, temporarily in a hotel room, I was able to start watching some of the newscasts of television station in the region, such as WJMN-TV, Channel 3.  The newscast on Channel 3 was anchored by Cynthia Thompson, who was wearing a black dress (or a dark dress) with a low-cut front.  It was a dress that was inappropriate for the occasion.  A friend of my mine with me--who I shall call Ms. X--was first to point out the dress looked like something to wear for an evening out.  Cynthia Thompson read from the teleprompter well enough, but she looked a bit scared, though it is not as if she is a beginner.  Actually, the newscast opened with a weather segment, hosted by Tom Kippen.  Tom Kippen speaks quickly, but he rarely makes speaking errors (such as stalls).  In that opening segment, his leaning from side to side was a bit disconcerting to me.  I did not stay to see the sports segment.  Oh, I saw Adam Claibon do weathercasting in the six o'clock hour for WBUP-TV, Channel 10, (an ABC affiliate), and he had some speaking slips, and his hand movements came off as staged (rehearsed) or unnatural at times.

    In October 2015, I noticed Jack Van Impe was back on duty on the syndicated show (based in Troy, Michigan) called Jack Van Impe Presents (a religious-based series); he had been off the broadcast since the early spring 2015 because of illness, and his wife (Rexella) had been hosting the show with substitute co-hosts.  In Detroit, Jack Van Impe and Rexella Van Impe's weekly series is shown on WMYD-TV (Channel 20.1) at 12:00 a.m. Monday, and it runs for a half hour.  Jack and Rexella do at least some very  important work through their television program--they show up the rottenness of Sharia (Islamic law).  Jack Van Impe has or holds a special television record in Detroit television history.  I can say that Jack Van Impe's most recent appearance on Detroit television was in October 2015 (at least).  Jack Van Impe's first appearance on Detroit television with his own show goes back to the late 1940s, about 1949 [I have yet to get the exact start date, but it seems to be in 1949].  Back around 1949, Jack Van Impe had a television show on WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) called America Back to God.  Although Jack Van Impe may not have been on Detroit television regularly between 1949 and October 2015, it look as if I can say that he holds the record for being on Detroit television with his own show of some type or shows the longest or longer than anyone else--from the first day on television to the last day--and that covers a range of about 66 years.

    Let me now get to news that your favorite television newscaster probably did not present to you, being either a rotten person or a stupid person.  On October 29, 2015, on CBS This Morning, Charlie Rose interviewed U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (a Republican related to Florida)--it was the morning after a Republican Party presidential debate--and Charlie Rose worked to make Marco Rubio look like a bad person, because Marco Rubio had, in essence, called Hillary Clinton a big liar in connection with the "Benghazi Killings Scandal" on the previous night; Charlie Rose--a communist--did the best he could to put down Marco Rubio, even though Hillary Clinton had shown herself to be a liar during congressional testimony on October 22, 2015.  On November 3, 2015, I was watching the Today show on NBC-TV at about 9:43 a.m. (Detroit time), and there was sort of a review being done about a new movie called Spotlight, which focuses on sex-abuse related to priests in the Catholic Church, and although the movie--a "docudrama"--is not real journalism, Natalie Morales noted that the movie was "good journalism" [Note: That is bullshit from Natalie Morales, yet another communist].  On November 5, 2015, a roughly 6,000-page document called the "Trans-Pacific Partnership" agreement--which had yet to be finalized--was released to the public, and the document was and is a proposed agreement tied to 12 countries, one of which is the United States of America, and the document is supposed to put down a structure for "free trade" or something or other amongst the countries [However, a good person well knows an agreement of roughly 6,000 pages has to be nonsense and rotten, especially since it is being supported by a proven perpetual liar and insane man--Barack Hussein Obama--and a good person well knows the document should be considered a "treaty" and probably will not be handled as a "treaty" by the U.S. Congress, allowing more rottenness to engulf the country].  On November 5, 2015, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill related to funding transportation and a trade bank, and many news entities passed that information along, but what many good people never learned is that, before the bill was passed, some Republicans had worked to make it so that money related to the trade bank could not end up in the hands of countries that, for instance, were sponsors of terrorism, but the feature had been defeated by the Democrats and many Republicans [Note: The defeat of the proposed amendment showed more of the rottenness of the Democrats and many of the Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives].  On November 5, 2015, I became aware of a news story with national implications, and the story showed off the increasing rottenness of the government entities in the country; in essence, the story was that Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman (a communist) of New York was putting pressure on Exxon Mobil for not towing the line that manmade global warming (or manmade climate change) is fact that can not be challenged and that the government's belief that manmade globe warming exists to the extent that man is killing the planet by using fossil fuels has to be obeyed--or the disbeliever will be taken to court on criminal charges [Note: Real facts and the "Climategate" scandal show that the pushers of manmade global warming are liars!  A good person can see that the attorney general of New York is tyrannical and a pusher of enslavism and corruption].  On November 6, 2015, Barack Obama held a press conference saying that, in essence, he was killing the start of the Keystone XL pipeline project (which had been proposed to get crude oil by pipeline from Canada to Texas of the United States of America), and Barack Obama had shut shit come out of his mouth during the speech as--"...The pipeline would not make a long-term significant contribution to the country...." and "...Shipping dirtier crude oil in to our country would not increase America's energy security...." and "...Because ultimately if we're gonna prevent large parts of this earth from becoming not only inhospitable but uninhabitable in our lifetimes, we're gonna have to keep some fossil fuels in the ground...." [Note: I say that Barack Obama was purposely working to teach ignorance to people and lies to people--it was deliberate.  By the way, what the hell is "dirtier crude oil"?].  Also around November 6,  2015, one of the big stories--which was a lie being pushed along by rotten news entities, such as Politico--was that Ben Carson (who was running to be the next president of the United States of America) lied about, for instance, his being at West Point and more.

    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!
