"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!


    At the open of Michigan Travel Tips #145 (reached through Travel #145) and the open of Television History and Trivia #145 (reached through T.H.A.T. #145), I passed along information, which your favorite television newscaster probably did not tell you about, that notes that the federal government--controlled by the evil Barack Obama and his associates (socialists and communities and black racists and the like)--is well into making it commonplace for the federal government to determine where and where not people, especially "whites," will get to buy property for residences and live in the United States of America, and it is tied to, for one, using even more taxpayer money to put low-income people into high-rent areas, especially communities that are mostly "white" in nature.  Also, the idea is to put people who are very likely to vote for "Democrats" than "Republicans" into communities that have in the past supported more "Republicans" and "Republican-type issues" in elections than "Democrats" and "Democratic Party-type issues" (which are now hard-line communistic issues).  Since your favorite newscaster, such as Stephen Clark of WXYZ-TV, who has shown he is a supporter of communistic ways, probably will not tell you--I say that you must look up truthful information about the "Small-Area Fair Market Rents" idea and the "Mobility Counselors" idea (the "Mobility Counselors" will be like enforcers).  You will see how rotten the nature of the "Democrat" of today is--it is hellish!  I say that the nature will involve violence, pushed out by the "Mobility Counselors."

    September is the start for the new television season, and this edition of Television History and Trivia has no information about any of the new shows of the broadcast networks, such as reviews, but I note that, based on promotional announcements shown by the broadcast networks, I have seen nothing that looks as if it will be pleasant or fun.  This September edition of Television History and Trivia will focus on the past, which is the commonplace way of such documents.  Since I published the previous edition of Television History and Trivia, one of the big stories of television and newspapers and whatever has been the Colin Kaepernick incident at exhibition football games, in which Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the U.S. flag.  I can report that Colin Kaepernick can stand or not stand for the U.S. flag, as he wishes, but the reason for his not standing shows that Colin Kaepernick is a rotten man (who claims to be at least partially "black," though to me it looks as if his background has Arab roots).  Colin Kaepernick is a supporter of the "Black Lives Matter" movement, which is a rotten political movement based on a lie.  On August 9, 2014, a young man named Michael Brown acted criminally, such as by committing a theft and by attacking a police officer, in Ferguson, Missouri, and the police officer under attack shot and killed--in self-defense--Michael Brown.  Such police-type entities as local police department in Ferguson and the U.S. Department of Justice (ultimately headed by Barack Obama) concluded the shooting by the police officer was justified, and it was reported that Michael Brown did not, for example, throw up his stands and say something like "Don't shoot.".  Yet, today, people have come to push out the lie that Michael Brown was giving himself up to the police officer on August 9, 2014, and those people often go by the slogan "Hands up!  Don't shoot!".  It is all a lie that they push.  That lie about Michael Brown was the based for the creation of the "Black Lives Matter" movement.  Colin Kaepernick is a promoter and follower of the "Black Lives Matter" movement--he is a pusher of rottenness.  After Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand up for the flag, Colin Kaepernick said such things as--"...I am not going to stand to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color...." and "...There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder....".  Colin Kaepernick may be a professional football player, who happens to be one of the quarterbacks for the San Francisco 49ers (which is based in San Francisco, California, which is, in essences, a communistic-based city), but Colin Kaepernick is also a big television personality.  By the way, through a search on the Internet, I found that, generally speaking, Colin Kaepernick is in a six-year contract with the football team that provides him about $16-million a year.  History shows that the "Black Lives Matter" movement--based on a lie--has promoted, such as through slogans, the idea of hurting police (killing police), and yet Colin Kaepernick supports and promotes the movement.  That shows Colin Kaepernick is a rotten man.  When you see Colin Kaepernick on television, understand you are seeing a rotten man, and when you see anyone who supports Colin Kaepernick, you are seeing a rotten person, who is pushing the lie along.  By the way, I have heard Colin Kaepernick speak, such as in talking about his protest, and he sounds like a piss-ass boy (a high-school boy) and not like a man, but, unfortunately for all, I am unable to provide audio in this edition of Television History and Trivia to prove the point, since Television History and Trivia is unable to provide any audio.

    Recently, I saw a 1955 photograph of "Moppets the Clown," and "Moppets" was wearing a straw-based "skimmer"-type hat (sort of the style that had been used for years by a famous comedian called Buster Keaton).  It was Bob McNea who was Moppets.  When Bob McNea was in his young teens, he was already involved with "clowning" in his home town--St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada--and in 1955, Bob McNea as Moppets had his own television show in the Detroit (Michigan)/Windsor (Ontario) area.  Actually, he was on CKLW-TV, Channel 9, which was based in Windsor and which then was easily available to television viewers in the Detroit area.  Actually, Moppets the Clown went on the air on May 8, 1955, at noon, and it ran for thirty minutes, and the last showing for the weekly series seems to have been on June 5, 1955.  The set for the show was a fire station, and one of the objects--props--of the set was a fire engine, which was not a real working fire engine; before Moppets the Clown was on the air, Bob McNea had worked as a maker of sets and props at CKLW-TV.  It seems very likely to me Bob McNea was instrumental in making the fire engine and setting materials for the television show.  Moppets the Clown was not the first way in which Moppets was seen on television, particularly Channel 9; Bob McNea as Moppets had already made some appearances on a weekly Sunday show hosted by the well-known Toby David (who would go on to play Captain Jolly for shows broadcast by Channel 9).  Around the time that Moppets the Clown was on the air, Moppets was showing up at, for instance, hospitals to entertain ill children.  Between the late 1940s and the early 1960s, Bob McNea did clowning for circuses that traveled around in the United States of America and Canada; for instance, in the early 1950s, Moppets the Clown was a part of the cast for the Garden Bros. Circus, and around 1960, Moppets was involved with the Harold Bros. Circus.  The heyday for Bob McNea on television in the Detroit area was from January 1959 to October 1979; from January 12, 1959 to August 1967, Bob McNea was "Bozo the Clown" for WWJ-TV (Channel 4), and from September 1967 to October 1979, Bob was "Oopsy the Clown" for WWJ-TV.  "Oopsy" was Bob McNea's creation, and "Oopsy" looked much like what "Moppets" had; one difference between the 1955 Moppets and the Oopsy was that Moppets had the "skimmer"-type hat at least and Oopsy had a flower-pot-type hat.  Back in 1955, for a short time, Moppets the Clown was entertaining moppets watching television sets, and now there seems to be a bunch on clowns (idiots and such) on Detroit television. [Note: By the way, when Bozo the Clown showed up on Channel 4 in 1959, it replaced a show called Romper Room (which was a local production that used a format that was sold in syndication around the country), and later, Romper Room showed up in a new version with a local host on CKLW-TV, Channel 9, running from 1960 to 1967, and when CKLW-TV gave up on airing Romper Room, it was Bozo the Clown that took the time slot on weekdays (which was the 9:00 a.m. time slot).]

  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 Republican 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.]

    My Detroit-television-history files are getting bigger and bigger every day, and that is good.  However, while I make it bigger, I come up with television shows that I can only note when they were on, and that is bad.  On Thursday, October 20, 1949, and Friday, October 21, 1949, WJBK-TV Channel 2, aired a program called Relaxercise with Dean (which is the name in old television-program listings).  I know nothing about the program.  It seems to be some type of exercise program that was produced at the station.  I cannot find the program defined anywhere as a network program, and I have not found the program in other markets, such as New York, in 1949.  I can only say that someone called "Dean" hosted the show or led the "relaxercise" techniques.  For now, I am only vaguely aware of Relaxercise with Dean, as you are now.

    Hey, take this in!  In the past, I have talked about Rochelle Riley, a writer for the Detroit Free Press, which is a newspaper that supports, for instance, the ways of communism, and Rochelle Riley has shown her support for the ways of communism, and besides being a writer for the Detroit Free Press, Rochelle Riley shows up on television, such as on Detroit-area television-station political talk shows, from time to time.  On Sunday, September 4, 2016, Rochelle Riley had a story published in the Detroit Free Press entitled "Kaepernick is teaching us a lesson about our freedom" (Riley, Rochelle.  "Kaepernick is teaching us a lesson about our freedom."  Detroit Free Press, 4 September 2016, p. 4A.).  Let me show you some of the bullshit that Rochelle Riley believes in and pushes.  Her article had such material as--"...Most important, when Kaepernick refused to stand when the team took the field against the Green Bay Packers and later took a knee before the San Diego Chargers game, he was not dissing America.  He was helping America.  He was doing his job, reminding fellow citizens that America is not where it should be....".  That theme is all bullshit!  Colin Kaepernick was dissing "America" because his action was and is based on a lie and bullshit.  By the way, Rochelle Riley worked--through the article--to make Colin Kaepernick's protest like that of Rosa Parks' protest on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955.  The two incidents have no ties is style or nature.  Rochelle Riley pushed rottenness, and that shows the nature of Rochelle Riley.  Rochelle Riley is yet another rotten person--in this case, a rotten woman--who can be seen on television in the Detroit area from time to time.

    One of Rochelle Riley's associates at the Detroit Free Press is Nancy Kaffer, who, as shown as through, for example, her writings for the Detroit Free Press, is hard-line communist.  In T.H.A.T. #147, I talk about Nancy Kaffer, and since I published T.H.A.T. #147, I have found proof that Nancy Kaffer has appeared on television in the Detroit area, such as on Flashpoint, which is a weekly Sunday show produced by and aired on WDIV-HD, Channel 4.1 (an NBC-TV affiliate), and the program is hosted by Devin Scillian, who has promoted Cuba as a good place (as I have shown in past edition of Television History and Trivia).  I urge you to see Michigan Travel Tips #149 to see more of the rottenness of Nancy Kaffer, and you can get to that document by using this Travel #149 link, and to get to T.H.A.T. #147, you can use this T.H.A.T. #147 link.

    I close with information about a rotten entity, which is been rotten for years.  For years, I have see PBS programs that announce that some funding for the programs has come from the "Ford Foundation."  Recently, I learned the Ford Foundation, which, in essence, was started by the owners of Ford Motor Company and is reported to not be tied to the Fort Motor Company today, is helping to fund the "Black Lives Matter" movement by providing a lot of money to what is called the "Black-Led Movement Fund."

    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!


    P.S.: You are urged to see my document entitled One of "The Rules of Man"--A Rule About Health Care that No Politician May Supersede with Law, which can be reached through this Rule1 link.  I have deduced that all the Democrats and most Republicans support the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and have no intention of killing it, though it should be killed for violating, for one, "The Rules of Man."  For example, Republicans Jeb Bush and Christ Christie support the rotten law, and that is one reason that I define them as stupid men and not men who are good enough--in this day and age--to be the U.S. President.  On February 18, 2016, during a "Republican Presidential Town Hall" broadcast on CNN, Donald Trump showed why he would not be a great U.S. President by saying--"Well, I like the mandate.  Okay.  Here's where I'm a little bit different.  I don't want people dying in the street....".  I note that the "mandate"--which forces every to buy government-approved health-care insurance--violates one of "The Rules of Man," and it is a rule that is attacked in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.  Anyone who supports the "mandate" is not a good enough person or a smart enough person to be the U.S. president--the mandate is "enslavism," and the "mandate" allows government people--who are often and usually bad people, as history shows--decide what health care a person can get, and that is bad.
