    For eight years or so, I was regularly involved--almost on a basis of seven days a week--in writing documents for posting on the Internet that focused on shit-head Barack Hussein Obama (a supporter of the Democratic Party in the United States, socialism, communism, and Sharia, all that which is evil), such as when Barack Hussein Obama was the U.S. president.  I no longer do daily writing work to show up the rottenness of Barack Hussein Obama and Barack Hussein Obama's mind.  I do other writing on a regular basis, such as write documents about the history of WDET-FM (of Wayne State University) and the first furnaces in 40 Mile Point Lighthouse, which were Carton Furnace Co. models that were installed in 1896.  From time to time, I do hear about some of the crap that Barack Hussein Obama pushes out through speeches.  On July 17, 2018, I heard some audio clips of a speech that Barack Obama had given in South Africa for the celebration of the 100th birthday date for Nelson Mandela, and it was more shit from Barack Hussein Obama.  The statements were lies or illogical or confused thought or flap doodle.  For instance, Barack Hussein Obama pass along this "winner" (I say "winner" in jest)--"...Look around you.  Strongman politics are ascendant suddenly.  Whereby elections and some pretense of democracy are maintained--the form of it--but those in power seem to undermine every institution or norm that gives democracy meaning....".  Yes, that is shit from a shit-head man.  While Barack Hussein Obama was the U.S. president, he practiced "strongman politics," pushing lies and unconstitutional rules and regulations.  It seems very likely your Detroit-area television newscaster did not pass along in clips (audio or video) Barack Hussein Obama's speech for the 100th celebration, which is not surprising to me since, as a rule, the newscasters on television in the Detroit area are "throw-aways" or rotten, such as Devin Scillian (the Cuba lover).  If you want to learn about an idiot man and a rotten man, look for video of Barack Hussein Obama's speech, and learn what a piece of shit the man is.
    Again as usual, I have another Television History and Trivia document that shows up a lot of the rotten people tied to television, but the document has some nice stuff.

    I begin with crap.  On July 18, 2018, WDIV-HD hosted and broadcast a show called Decision 2018: Democratic Gubernatorial Debate, which was moderated by Devin Scillian and Kimberly Gill and featured Democratic Party candidates for the office of the governor for the State of Michigan--Gretchen Whitmer (a communist), Abdul El-Sayed (a communist and Shariaist), and Shri Thanedar (a communist and probably a Shariaist).  The candidates are three rotten people, and during the program, they passed along lies and idiocy and foolishness.  I really am saying--They are evil people, who are willing to do harm and hurt to good people (such as anti-communists or conservatives).  They put down Donald Trump, of course.  They showed their support for legalizing drug use--recreational marijuana use.  One theme was a real piece of shit--Shri Thanedar pushed out the idea that the government should not get between a doctor and a female patient.  Yet, Shri Thanedar supports a health-care system in which the government is totally in charge of health care for every citizen, and he likes "Obamacare," as do Gretchen Whitmer and Abdul El-Sayed.  Shri Thanedar's mind is illogical--A totally government-run health-care system is a system in which the government gets between a doctor and patient, and one piece of proof is "Obamacare."  Shri Thanedar--though he works to show a smiley face all the time--is a type of man that people used to spit on.  The entire program was a cliché fest of hard-line communistic themes.  There was nothing good about the program!  Oh, the three evil persons did sort of praise Governor Rick Snyder (of Michigan), whose time in office is about to run out because of term-limitation rules, and they praised Governor Rick Snyder because Governor Rick Snyder pushed through more Medicaid stuff in Michigan that they like.  I state--Rick Snyder is a socialist, who has worked to help keep "Obamacare" alive [Note: It will be good when he is gone, though hard-line communists are working to get his job, and they could get in office and make things worse.].  I could spend hours showing up the shit that was pushed out by Gretchen Whitmer, Abdul El-Sayed, and Shri Thanedar on the television program, but I shall stop here.  It was evil on display!

    Hey, every month, I put a new document informally called Michigan Travel Tips on the Internet, and it is becoming commonplace for me to use those documents to show up rotten people in Michigan, such as in the communistic cities like Traverse City, Ann Arbor, Flint, Ferndale, and Royal Oak, where a person has to be aware the police can be rotten because they are beholden to uphold the communistic laws put in play by the politicians [Note: If a person who is a police officer gets a job in a communistic city, then the police officer is very likely to support the ways of communism, and that is the sign of a rotten person--good people do not work for shit places.].  Here I have to talk about a shit place, though this document is not an edition of Michigan Travel Tips and is designed to focus on television.  What I have to say I did not learn about on television, and it may not have been covered on television programs that you watch--it should have been covered.  I learned that the University of Minnesota is really a rotten place.  It is a place with people who are worth shit!  Examine this theme.  The University of Minnesota has a policy in which, for instance, students can define themselves through whatever pronouns that they like, displacing "he" and "she" for idiotic stuff.  Here is the kicker.  Students and faculty members are beholden to call each person--when using a pronoun--what the person wants to be called, and if a speaker violates the rule, the speaker will receive disciplinary action, such as--at most--termination from the faculty staff or expulsion from the school.  That is the sign of high rottenness!  It is coercion!  It is communism!  It is bullshit!  A person has to waste time trying to keep all the possible pronouns from defectives in mind and use them at the right time and spend time trying to figure out when to use the right one.  Mentally ill persons are imposing shit on society through this kind of stuff, and some of the mentally ill are clearly on the staff of the University of Minnesota.

    Like Gretchen Whitmer, Abdul El-Sayid, and Shir Thanedar, the people of the University of Minnesota are people who should be hated--their minds are evil.

    Hold it!  Around the time that WDIV-TV aired the debate of July 18, 2018, Shri Thanedar had an advertisement on television that really showed the shit that is in his mind.  At the end of the advertisement, Shri Thanedar said--"...We're gonna keep Trump's racism out of Michigan!".  What racism is shit-head Shri Thanedar talking about?  Where is Donald Trump pushing racism?  Shri Thanedar's over-the-top bullshit shows the rottenness of the man, smiley face or no smiley face.  And that is what can be seen on television.

    The National Broadcasting Communist TV network--I mean the National Broadcasting Company TV network or NBC-TV--started pushing out another season of Trial & Error on Thursday, July 19, 2018, airing two episodes.  The so-called comedy series is in the second season, and some of the performers are Nicholas D'Agosto, Jayma Mays, John Lithgow, and Kristin Chenoweth.  I avoided the second episode of the night, being put off with the crap of the first episode that I saw [Note: I already knew the series was crap, based on the first season look that I had taken.].  In the first episode of the night, I heard a lot of "pecker" jokes.  That is, the jokes were "penis"-based, though the naive person might not know that.  Trial & Error was all "error" and shit, which is not surprising since it is a series airing on NBC-TV.

    Announcement: I have several new documents on the Internet--at the website for The Hologlobe Press.  One document is entitled "Indigenous Peoples Day"--It is Not Deserved and Should Not Exist.  It can be reached by using this Indigenous link.  Another document is entitled Black-Racist U.S. Representative Frederica Wilson (a Democrat related to Florida) Shits on a Killed U.S. Soldier--Army Sergeant La David Johnson (a Black Man), which can be reached through this Frederica Wilson.  In relation to Frederica Wilson, you should see the video on YouTube entitled "John Kelly's EMOTIONAL White House Press Briefing 10/22/2017", which was posted on October 19, 2017, and it runs 21 minutes.  Yet another document is entitled The United States of America is Not "Healthy" Anymore and Never Will Be Again--Stupid Americans by the Millions and Rotten Politicians Like Having the Federal Government in Charge of Health Care, When It Should Never Be, which can be reached through this Not Healthy link.  Also I put a document that is under construction (at the time this document was published on the Internet) at the website for The Hologlobe Press so that I could show the documents listed in the bibliography (and it has a tie-in with this document), and that document is informally called A Collage of Corrupt, which can be reached through this Collage link.

    I report--Communists and socialists are evil people.  Such people are crazy.  Such people like to hurt others to get for themselves.  Such people pass along idiocy and lies.  Such people are ignorant and stupid.  Such people will do anything to achieve their goals--even kill.

    Let me jump in here with a bit of news that a good television news entity should have passed along, because it exposes up shit-head people--communists and socialists [Note: Your favorite television newscaster in Detroit probably did not pass along the news].  In July 2018, the City of Santa Barbara (of California) was setting up a new law, in which, for instance, a person working at a restaurant could be fined up to $1,000 or given up to six months in jail for offering or giving a "plastic straw" to a customer (if the customer does not request such a straw).  Santa Barbara is one of the socialistic/communistic cities in California, and San Francisco (California) and Seattle (Washington) are other socialistic/communistic cites in the United States of America with similar rules.  Remember: San Francisco is a city where people crapping and pissing on sidewalks is not frowned on by the local government.  For city government officials, such as those of Santa Barbara, to even think about proposing such penalties related to plastic straws shows the rottenness of the minds of the persons.

    Let me pass along what your favorite television newscast will never pass along to you.  Here is the "purpose" of the Democratic Socialists of America (taken from the "constitution" of the entity)--"We are socialists because we reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, disability status, age, religion, and national origin, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.  We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships.  We are socialists because we are developing a concrete strategy for achieving that vision, for building a majority movement that will make democratic socialism a reality in America.  We believe that such a strategy must acknowledge the class structure of American society and that this class structure means that is a basic conflict of interest between those sectors with enormous economic power and the vast majority of the population.".  The collection of words is idiocy, and one thing that it points up is the members of the entity will do violence to push people to do what they want, since there is no other way in the long run to get people to follow the members' rules but to use violence, and the violence will always have to exist, because the job will be never ending to make every one supposedly exactly equal.  Consider--There is no governing law or entity that sets "economic order" in the country; there are only millions and millions of people doing things and doing things based on their minds, and that results in the economy, and, for the most part, the government does not tell people what to buy and how to buy and what to make.  What the hell does this mean as a whole?--"We are socialists because we reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, disability status, age, religion, and national origin, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.".  Let me show up only some of the idiocy of the collection of words.  What does "national origin" have to do with "economic order"?  What does "gender expression" have to do with "economic order"?  The statement as a whole is a collection of unrelated things, and the result is confused thought.  It is illogical!  By looking at only a few pieces of the "purpose," I have shown the "vision" is a confused mess, and yet the Democratic Socialists are working to achieve that goal.  I ask--What goal is it?  The goal is never made clear in the statement.  In addition, I ask--What is "humane social order"?  You cannot achieve a "humane social order" through violence, and violence is the only way to reach a goal in which every person is exactly equal--especially monetarily--with another by the definition of the Democratic Socialists.  And you should see the "non-oppressive relationships" is bullshit!

    On This Week with George Stephanopoulos for July 22, 2018, one person who took part in the round-table discussion was Michelle Goldberg (of The New York Times).  Here is some of the crap that the communistic writer passed along on the show--"Look.  I think that increasingly to believe that the president isn't compromised requires such a leap of faith that requires so many coincidences and kind of inexplicable behavioral choices.  I think that the truth is probably what is right in front of us, which is that Donald Trump was a kind of con man, a third-tier failed businessman whose fortunes were rescued by Russian oligarchs.  He, he, he he, ra..., presented himself as a kind of titan of industry, which everybody knows anything about him knew was ridiculous.  He became president with the direct intervention of Putin.  He sees his fortunes as inseparable from Putin's.  He either--we don't know--I think, if Putin is his handler, his hero or his co-conspirator, but that's obviously where his loyalty lies as opposed to lying with the American people.  And I think increasingly when you look at the role that the NRA has played all of this, you know, I think that, you know, the Republican servility has been breathtaking to me and really confusing, because you do think that, you know, if nothing else, these people are patriots.  They have some baseline loyalty to the country over party, and yet they've lied down for Trump in this way that I mean people--people come up to me on the street.  They  find it unbelievable.  And I think that one of the things that came out of this week with the NRA is that maybe they are not just, you know, craven, some of them are also complicit because the NRA didn't just help Trump, it helped them all."  I state--It is a collage of nonsense!

    On July 26, 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is stumping to be the U.S. Congressman for the 14th District of New York) appeared on national television, particularly on The Daily Show [Note: In the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I showed some proof that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a young-woman idiot.]  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a Democratic Socialist.  By the way, socialism and communism are based on idiocy and illogic and foolishness, and the followers of such political thoughts think lying and selling misinformation is a worthy cause to get what they want--stuff for themselves, such as the death of others, riches for little work done, prestige in society, et cetera.  On The Daily Show, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez passed along a collage of idiocy, like that from a little stupid "Valley Girl" talking fast, such as--"...It's corporations and the ultra wealthy.  For example, as Warren Buffet likes to say: If he paid as much as his secretary paid--15 percent--if he paid a 15-percent tax rate, if, ah,...if we reverse the, the tax bill...raise our corporate to 28 percent, which is not even as high as it was before.  Uhm, if we, if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that's two-trillion dollars right there.  That's two-trillion dollars in ten years.  And it's wi, one of the wide estimates that it's gonna take three-to-four-trillion dollars to transition us to one-hundred percent renewable energy economy.  So we got two-trillion dollars for folks paying their fair share, which they were not paying before the Trump tax bill.  They weren't...like they weren't paying that before the Trump tax bill.  If we get people to pay their fair share, that's two trillion in ten years.  Now, if we implement a carbon tax on top of that so that we can transition and, and financially incentivize people away from fossil fuels.  If we implement the carbon tax, that's an additional amount of, uhm, of, of a large amount of revenue we can have.  And then the last key--which is extremely, extremely important--is reprioritization.  Just last year, we gave the military a seven-hundred billion dollar, ah, tax, budget increase, which they didn't even ask for.  They're like--We don't want another fighter jet; like, they're like--Don't give us another nuclear bomb.  They, they didn't even ask for it, and we gave it to them.  And so a lot of what we need to do reprioritize what we want to accomplish as a nation.  And really what this is about is saying--Health care is important for us, enough for us to put first.  Education is important, enough for us to put first.  And that is a decision that requires political and moral courage from both parts of the aisle....".  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed herself off as a good example of an evil person, a communist/socialist, stumbling and rambling on with incorrect information and lies and bullshit and shallow girlie talk.  Let me begin with the military-themed comment by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez probably gets some of her news from CNN, which is a communistic-based news entity (though she may not).  Yet, stuff from CNN debunks that Alexandria Oscaio-Cortez pushed out.   The military was short on funds around 2017, and it was having to scrape up used parts to keep aircraft flying [Cohen, Zachary.  "Desperate for planes, military turns to the 'boneyard.'"  CNN.com, 14 July 2016, 8;18 a.m. ET.], and in 2018, the military was asking for a budget increase of about $80-billion for 2019 [Rizzo, Jennifer, and Brad Lendon.  "Pentagon asks for major budget increase amid threats from Russia, China and North Korea."  CNN.com, 13 February 2018, 6:51 a.m.].  So, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's thoughts about the military are defective, and she teaches crap.  Her thoughts about three-to-four-trillion dollars to get to a one-hundred percent renewable economy combined with the carbon-tax idea is ludicrous thought, and, in the end, the cost will come from non-really rich people, such as the poor, who will have to pay more for basic things, and it will not be possible to get to a one-hundred percent renewable economy and keep the economy going, such as going to build things and grow things.  By the way, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pushed out the idea of "incentivizing" people, but really what she means is "punishing" people--since a "tax" that she wants is punishment.  There are no "loopholes" in the federal tax laws!  The idea of "loopholes" is bullshit that Democrats have been pushing for years and years.  Consider--Over the last several decades, Democrats have mostly been in charge of the U.S. Congress, and, in essence, they wrote the tax laws.  Anyway, when anyone does not follow the tax laws, the IRS comes after them, and if a person or entity follows the tax laws, the IRS cannot do anything against the person or entity.  What the hell is "fair share" in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's little girl mind?  It is fact that the rich pay most of the taxes in the country as it is.  Hey, it seems in Alexandria's Ocasio-Cortez's flaky world--If you have any more money--even a bit more--than one of your relatives or friends has, it means you could be in the group that is not paying a "fair share"--you should only have as much in your pocket as your relative or friend has.  For well over two-hundred years, people in the country have been worried about educating their children, and they have been getting children educated (such as with McGuffy Readers), and it is not as if educating children is a new thing or something that has not been done before [Note: However, I can argue the public-education system in the country of the last few decades, mostly controlled by socialists and communnists, has taught a lot of crap, and that has to be killed.].  Incidentally, two-hundred years ago, children could add up change for a dollar without a calculating machine, and, today, many kids cannot do that [Note: I have seen it, and that result has come because of communists' taking over schools and teaching.].  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's little girlie mind is the mind of a killer of societies and good people.  Most definitely I say that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a shit-head person, not unlike Barack Hussein Obama.

    I must point out that The Daily Show is a program shown by Comedy Central.  "Comedy" is what the network or channel is purported to have.  The Daily Show is hard-line communistic, and the host is Trevor Noah.  Trevor Noah and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were being serious about what they believed during the interview, and they both agreed with each other, and they laughed and chuckled, such as during the part about the "bomb" and the military.  It was all rottenness, lacking anything good and funny.

    And this information must be kept in mind, since it backs up the idea of evilness.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to have a degree in economics from Boston University.  [Note: What is her degree really worth?]  Her having a degree in economics shows off either the rottenness of Boston University, which then must teach crap about economics or will give out degrees to anyone--even if a person has done crappy in tests and such--or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez learned what real economics is and is purposely using what knowledge she knows about economics to teach the opposite.

    On Saturday, July 28, 2018, I saw this story in the Detroit Free Press ("NAMES+FACES: Tom Arnold: Hunt for revealing Trump tapes is public service."  Detroit Free Press, 28 July 2018, p. 3C.)--"Tom Arnold says if his search for revealing tapes of President Donald Trump yields anything, he won't save it for the September debut of his new TV series.  Any tape that would 'help our country' will immediately be released, the comedian-turned activist told a TV critics' meeting Thursday.  He said Trump's resignation from office is the intended goal of 'The Hunt for the Trump Tapes With Tom Arnold,' which debuts Sept. 18 on Viceland.".  Such bullshit is in the mind of Tom Arnold.  He is an enemy of good people--non-communists and non-socalist.  Tom Arnold's mind is the mind of a killer, too.

    Hey, see this crap from the Detroit Free Press.  In July 2018 and August 2018, the Detroit Free Press published a bunch of stories on the front page of editions focusing on the fate of "undocumented immigrants" (actually, law breakers or "illegal immigrants"), and on August 10, 2018, there was yet another story, starting on the front page [Baldas, Tresa.  "New Fears for reunited immigrants."  Detroit Free Press, 10 August 2018, pp. 1A and 10A.].  Here is one paragraph of the story--"...In the wake of President Donald Trump's controversial zero-tolerance policy that separated more than 2,500 children from their parents at the Southern border of the United States, scores of immigrant families have now landed in strange places with no support....".  That is bullshit from Tresa Baldes and the Detroit Free Press.  The children were not separated from their parents because of U.S. President Donald Trump; they were separated because of U.S. immigration law that had been created by previous U.S. Congress people and U.S. presidents.  Second, "immigrant families" are not being separated.  "Illegal aliens" in the form of families have been separated (and for only short periods of tme).  In one short paragraph, shit was passed along to readers.  That is a sign of rotten people.

    A big-name at the Detroit Free Press is Mitch Albom, whom I have talked about in the past, since he is a rotten man and since he does and has done work on television in the Detroit area--today he does junk for WDIV-TV (Channel 4), which is the home of news-anchor Devin Scillian (the Cuba lover).  On Sunday, August 5, 2018, Mitch Albom had one of his rotten stories published in the Detroit Free Press, and, in truth, I shall call it one of his most rotten pieces [Albom, Mitch.  "If press is the 'enemy,' then who is your friend?"  Detroit Free Press, 5 August 2018, pp. 23A and 25A.].  The story was used to try to promote the main press in the United States of America as good and U.S. President Donald Trump as highly, highly evil.  It was shit from Mitch Albom.  Consider this paragraph--"So when the idea that the press is the 'enemy' of America starts to float, we ought to be concerned.  After all, you can name two other famous leaders in the last century who defined their critics as 'enemies" of the people'; Soviet dictator Josef Stalin and Chinese dictator Mao Zedong....".  See?  Mitch Albom worked to define Donald Trump as a communist like Josef Stalin and Mao Zedong, both of whom were instrumental in killing millions in their countries--people who would not follow the ways of communism (or socialism).  Barack Hussein Obama is a supporter of communism and socialism and Sharia, and that is what Mitch Albom never puts down, and, in fact, Mitch Albom supported Barack Hussein Obama as the U.S. president.  Hey, Mitch Albom, do you not remember how Barack Hussein Obama spied on the press, such as The Associated Press.  In addition, Stalin and Mao put non-communistic newspaper people in prison or killed such people, and Stalin and Mao ended up with the government running the press, and I state that leads to rotten countries.  Mitch Albom--through the article--pushed out the idea that, if the press is so bad, why has it exposed so much bad in the past.  For instance, Mitch Albom pushed out the idea that the press was instrumental in getting rid of Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.  I state--When a person is so bad--so corrupt--that he is killing a city, even communists and socialists will work to get rid of the person to put in another socialist or communist.  Mitch Albom pushed out the idea of the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal would not have come to light without the press.  However, I state that Mitch Albom's idea about the press and the scandal is crap.  It was not the main press that pushed out the story about the scandal.  In essence, it was Matt Drudge--a man with an Internet-related website--that broke the story about the scandal about twenty years ago [and he went on to become a big name on the Internet with The Drudge Report, which still exists today)--a smart person knows Newsweek had the story before Matt Drudge published it, but the Newsweek "sat" on the story," and when the main media was then forced to cover the story, the main media regularly worked to make the federal investigator involved in trying to uncover the scandal look like crap.  By the way, where is Mitch Albom is relation to all the criminal things that Hillary Clinton (Bill Clinton's wife) did over the last ten years (at least), and where is Mitch Albom's work to show the corruption in the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department related protecting Hillary Clinton from prosecution for, for instance, violating the "Espionage Act," and where is Mitch Albom's work to show up the crap that is the "Trump Dossier" scandal?  In the article, Mitch Albom talked about safety violations in cars and sports scandals.  I state--Such scandals have nothing to do with putting communists and socialists in government jobs and making the country not tied to The U.S. Constitution and non-communism and non-socialism, so the press will cover such things, and the press has covered such things [Note: To exit, the press has to cover something on a daily basis.].  Yet another set of words in Mitch Albom's article was--"...None of that is new.  So President Trump is not new.  And Sarah Sanders is not new.  But this idea that the press is the enemy of America, coming from the man we elected out leader--that's new.  And dangerous.  And please don't say it's only the fake news that's the enemy (as the President later tweeted).  One person's fake news is another person's gospel.  If we stop looking at "the media" as the small group that covers the President's press briefings, we'd recognize that the overwhelming amount of journalism practices in this country is honorable and admirable and necessary.".  Yes, much of the press is not involved in attacking U.S. President Donald Trump, given many people are writing about car accidents, house fires, more car accidents, cooking recipes, restaurants, more restaurants, parks, and such--much of the media is not involved in writing what is supposed to be news related to government and politics.  I state that U.S. President Donald Trump gets to push back against the media, given the attacks on him and his family members are mostly based on bullshit and lies and few are backing him up, and I have stated for some time that, indeed, the main media is the "enemy" of good people in the United States of America--non-communists, non-socialists, and such.  Mitch Albom--another seller of propaganda--is one of the faces of the rotten main media, which includes NBC News and CNN and MSNBC and the Detroit Free Press--and you should see on his face the image of communism and socialism, especially when you see him on television.

    Socialist and communists hate and have to hate The United States Constitution, since the document is design to stop enlavists from being dictators in the country, and since the document is designed to put limitations on government and on what politicians can do--it is a document like no other in the world.  On August 9, 2018, I saw--online--an article written by two socialists for The New York Times (online).  It was "Think the Constitution Will Save Us?  Think Again", and the authors were Megan Day and Bhaskar Sunkara.  It was shit of the highest degree.  Here it is:

Consider a few facts: Donald Trump is in the White House, despite winning almost three million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton.  The Senate, the country's most powerful legislative chamber, grants the same representation to Wyoming's 579,315 residents as it does to 39,536,653 Californians.  Key voting rights are denied to citizens in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and other United States territories.  The American government is structured by an 18th-century text that is almost impossible to change.

These ills didn't come about by accident; the subversion of democracy was the explicit intent of the Constitution's framers.  For James Madison, writing in Federalist No. 10, 'Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention' incompatible with the rights of property owners.  The byzantine Constitution he helped create serves as the foundation for a system of government that rules over people, rather than an evolving tool for popular self-government.

Writers on the left such as Jacobin's Seth Ackerman and the journalist Daniel Lazare have long argued that constitutional reform needs to be on the agenda.  Even some liberals like Vox's Matthew Yglesiad rightly worry that the current system of governance is headed toward collapse.

These perspectives are vital at a time when many progressives regard the Constitution as our only line of defense against a world-be autocrat in the White House.  Yet whether or not the president knows it, the Constitution has long been venerated by conservative business elites like himself on the grounds that it hands them the power to fend off attempts to redistribute wealth and created new social guarantees in the interest of working people.  There's a reason we're the only developed country without guarantees such as universal health care and paid maternity leave.  While preserving and expanding the Bill of Right's incomplete safeguards of individual freedoms, we need to start working toward the establishment of a new political system that truly represents Americans.  Our ideal should be a strong federal government powered by a proportionally elected unicameral legislature.  But intermediary steps toward that vision can be taken by abolishing the filibuster, establishing federal control over elections and developing a simpler way to amend the Constitution through national referendum.

How hard would change be?  As Mr. Ackerman reminds us, while constitutional change is straight forward and feasible in most countries, 'an amendment to the U.S. Constitution requires the consent of no less than thirty-nine different legislatures comprising roughly  seventy-eight separately elected chambers.'

But it's a problem worth confronting.  As long as we think of our Constitution as a sacred document, instead of an outdated relic, we'll have to deal with its anti-democratic consequences.

    And that is the article.  I state again--It is shit of the highest form.  Let me show some of the shit.  When a federal government is in control of elections related to federal offices, you end up with a rotten country, since it is easy to get corruption in the federal government, and that leads to corrupt elections [Note: Look at the corruption in the federal government related to the "Trump Dossier" scandal.].  Currently, elections are controlled by each state related to each state or are locally controlled.  That is good, since, for instance, if one state gets corrupted, the corruption cannot affect directly another state [Note: The "people" in the state with corrupt elections can work to get rid of the corruption such as through court action.].  The authors did not point out the idea that the U.S. Senate is set up so that each state has two votes in deciding things and the U.S. House of Representatives is based on population (in which states have different numbers of representatives).  The authors pushed out the idea that some guy--some socialist or communist or progressive--thinks the "current system of governance is headed toward collapse...."?.  Who the hell is the guy and what does the guy base his prediction on?  It is just a batch of useless words from some guy--an "enslavist" (a communist or socialist or progressive), who is working to impose an all-powerful government on to this society (the United States of America).  "Popular self-government"--the authors talked about this.  The United States of America is a "representative republic" and not a straight "democracy," which is a type of thing that the authors want because it leads to mob rule in which things can be pushed into law at a whim--feelings of the moment (things not thought out).  Anyway, the country is set up for "We the people"--popular as a self-government for decades.  I could go on, but I have had it with these "enemies" of good people and The United States Constitution.  The authors are truly freaks and "enemies," and their minds are highly rotten!  [Note: An "evolving tool for popular self-government" should be seen as meaning--as it does to communists and socialists--"a living and breathing constitution" [which can be changed at the whim of the moment or at will, especially by the politicians or the rulers].

    In the spring of 2018 and the early summer of 2018, I did more research about "broadcasting" related to Wayne State University (or Wayne University), and, for example, I put together more history documents related to WDET-FM and WAYN-AM of the university.  I also did a bit more research on present-day "WAYN Radio" of Wayne State University, which is an Internet-only radio-type entity.  In July 2018, I found this statement at the "facebook" site for WAYN Radio (the Internet radio entity) at Wayne State University, Detroit--"WAYN Radio is directed toward enriching the experience of students at Wayne State University.  With original programming that is fair, relevant and unbiased, as well as music programming that is unique and representative of the varied interest of WSU students.  WAYN Radio is designed to give all interested students at Wayne University the experience of working in a professional broadcast environment.  WAYN Radio is committed to improving the quality of life by providing programing that reflects the diverse tastes, cultures, and experiences of Wayne State University students.".  By the way, around 2011, the radio entity had this slogan--"Where the real world is introduced to diversity.".   Diversity--there is no diversity at WAYN Radio, given the programming is focused promoting only specific groups, such as transsexuals, and if the programming was fair and relevant, for instance, if might show some people are bad, such as pushers of Sharia (Islamic law).  There was more diversity in the history of WAYN Radio between 1931 and about 1985, when things were done for the wide range of people and peoples, than there is with Wayne Radio today.  [Note: By the way, socialism and communism have no ties to "diversity," since both political systems want the members of the "masses" to all be alike, and "democratic socialism" has no ties to "democracy," since only one-party government is allowed.]

    The thinking processes of socialists and communists are defective--they are not smart or logical--as I have shown in this document, and that makes such persons harmful to good persons, and when enough socialists and communists end up putting their idiocy into laws, they can kill a village, a town, a city, a county, and a country, and examples of the killing can be found on television regularly.

   Announcement for the novice again (reworked in May 2017): To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, 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-type people (communists and Shariaists), 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).  I note that Fox News Channel is evolving into a rotten channel, becoming like those that I have put down in this paragraph.  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 even now much of what is on the Fox News Channel 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: Everyone in the Democratic Party in the country is rotten, and 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 Sunday, July 22, 2018, I happened to see the edition of Let it Rip on Channel 2.1, WJBK-HD, Detroit, which was a show in which Charlie Langton (of the television station) posed questions to the Libertarian candidates for the governorship of Michigan--Bill Gelineau and John Tatar.  By the way, "libertarians" are rather defective.  Although history shows "libertarian" is derived from "liberty," most people--especially the naive--probably think of it as having ties to "liberalism" (a.k.a., for instance, socialism).  The name used by "libertarians" is a bad name.  In addition, instead of "libertarians" joining the "Republican Party" and helping push out and remove the socialists and communists from the "Republican Party," the Libertarians cause crap to happen by, for instance, taking votes away from the "Republican Party" in elections and helping to put "Democrats" (socialists and communists) in power.  Libertarians are tactically stupid.  During the program on Channel 2.1, I heard Bill Gelineau and John Tatar push for legalizing marijuana, which socialists and communists do.  The two candidates said--Because there is so much waste done with state income tax money by the state government, the state income tax should be removed.  That is illogical.  Removing the state income tax does not shut down corrupt and defective handling of state acquired money--the plot should be on shutting down the waste and corruption by the state officials.  The two candidates wanted to give pardons to a lot of people in prison, and they wanted more farmers and workers to be judges, displacing the so many  "bar attorneys" as judges.  Both candidates did a poor job to selling what "libertarians" are and stand for, and the two man looked shaky on camera, especially John Tatar.  Libertarians were not served well by the libertarians on display.  [Note: During the program, at least three local communists/socialists, such as Suneel Gupta and Tim Greimel, had their advertisements shown.]

    On July 18, 2018, there was yet another change with the broadcast "subchannel universe" in the Detroit area.  On that date, two new channels showed up.  Channel 50.2 (which is related to WKBD-TV) now exists, and it has the "Comet" subchannel network, and that means Comet is on two channels in the Detroit area.  And Channel 50.3 now exists, and it carries the subchannel network called "Charge!", which carries movies and some old television series, such as The Avengers.

    The Avengers referred to in the previous paragraph is not the super-hero (comics-based) Avengers; the television series was sort of a British spy show, which had one regular character--John Steed (played by Patrick Macnee).  The Avengers television series had a heyday in the 1960s, as did Batman (the television showed featuring Adam West as Batman), which is running on MeTV on Saturday evenings.  The 1960s was a time was television could be fun and often was.  I recently learned "Batwoman"  is coming to television soon on The CW Television network.  [In essence, "Batwoman" comes from Batman stuff.]  This "Batwoman" will be more crap on television.  In this case, it is more gay and lesbian crap being pushed on the American public and the world--it is politics pushed first over entertainment.  "Batwoman" will be a lesbian.  "Batwoman" is not quiet "Batgirl" (of "Batman" history), but to me, it smacks of bullshit, tainting "Batgirl" as a lesbian person.  It will be communistic politics over entertainment!  Hold it!  I am not done.  Batwoman is going to be involved in working to fight for "social justice"--that is crap being pushed out by shit-head blacks, communists, and socialists, and such rotten people

    In essence, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a killer, and that idea made me think of a 1948 movie that I could pass along to you in my regular feature called Looking at the Movies.  The monthly segment shows off movies that were aired on Detroit-area television between 1948 and about 1953 (or 1955, when CKLW-TV is taken into consideration).  This time, the movie is Blonde Ice, which was released to movie theaters in July 1948, a few months after the first full-length feature movie--something better than a B-movie was--had been shown on Detroit-area television (in February 1948).  On December 29, 1953, Channel 7, WXYZ-TV, showed Blonde Ice to viewers, starting at 11:15 p.m.  The movie was about a gold-digger named Claire, who was played by Leslie Brooks.  Other performers in the movie were Robert Paige, Russ Vincent, James Griffith, and Walter Sande.  By the way, James Griffith and Walter Sande often appeared on television shows in the 1950s.  This movie when shown on Channel 7 was aired under the umbrella title called Shamrock Theater, which was a weekly presentation for a while.  So, go to YouTube and look up Blonde Ice.  It is the likable presentation of Looking at the Movies for this month or this edition of Television History and Trivia.

    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 Chris 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.  I note that the "mandate"--which forces everyone 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.
