Welcome to another edition of T.H.A.T., and may this edition surprise you. It should, since, for one, some of the information within it came about through happenstance events that occurred to me. And some of the information is tied to television and some is tied to information that exists in Michigan Travel Tips #66, which was published on the same day that this edition of T.H.A.T. was published and which has surprises for you.
Here is what happened through a happenstance event. In mid-September, I took a trip through Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio, and, during the trip, I visited some tourist attractions, and some of the tourist attractions are talked about in Michigan Travel Tips #66, and one of the tourist attractions I now talk about here. When I was in northern Indiana on Thursday, September 16, 2009, I ended up at a Welcome Center (or Travel Information Center) along I-69, and a woman on duty noted that a little south of the Welcome Center was something to see called the "National Military History Center," which is near a city called Auburn, and soon after talking with the woman--at around 4:30 p.m.--I ended up at the National Military History Center, but the "center" was scheduled to close in a half hour. To me, the "center" is really a complex of museums, and I recommend your seeing the museums. I only had about thirty minutes to run through three of the museums, and one of the museums is called the "Phil T. Farnsworth Television History Center," and it is watched over by Dr. Stephen F. Hofer, who is the curator and the owner, and his wife, Mary. The Hofers are not usually at the museum and do not have to be to allow people to see it (the entire museum complex is open almost every day of the year), but the Hofers just happened to be at their museum on September 16, and they were scheduled to be there the next day. The Phil T. Farnsworth Television History Center has been at the museum complex since 2003, when the museum complex was opened; the little television museum was at Fort Wayne, Indiana, from 1991, when it was founded, to 2003. I rushed through the museum, and I saw special displays about Bozo the Clown, Roy Rogers, Howdy Doody, and Lucille Ball, and there were fifty-four television sets to see, and one display case was filled with many dozens of cartoon characters in toy form, and there were old television camera tubes, and the museum had a complete set of TV Guides, starting with the first of 1953, and I saw old games, and I saw other stuff. I went to see a military museum (which happened to be on the day that it was announced that Barack Obama was changing funding for a defensive missile system in Eastern Europe), and I ended up with a television museum. The museum complex is large, having the Phil T. Farnsworth Television History Center, the National Military History Center (which has about 172 military vehicles, about a third of which are related to World War II Germany, about a third of which are related to the U.S., and about of third of which are related to other countries), and the Kruse Automotive & Carriage Museum (which has a lot--a lot--of vehicles on display), and more, and a person could easily spend half a day there at least or a full day there. If you are traveling through northern Indiana on I-69 and you want to see things associated with television, especially television of the 1950s and 1960s, think about seeing the Philo T. Farnsworth Television History Center, which is in the building for the National Military History Center (which is near the Exit 126 interchange of I-69). (To see Michigan Travel Tips #66, which has more information about this trip and tourist attractions, you can use this link: Travel #66.)
Public Service Announcement: If you wish to avoid giving a donation to nonprofit groups that support "manmade global warming" legislation or "manmade climate-change" legislation, such as the very bad American Clean Energy and Security Act (which is also known as the Waxman-Markey Bill), give to something better--particularly the Heritage Foundation and the Landmark Legal Foundation, which are organizations that support The U.S. Constitution and are working to defeat Barack Obama's plans to take over the country.

In the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I talked about what some gals pictured on and in TV Guide (the edition for August 24-September 6, 2009) looked like, and to me, they did not look good or sexy or even in some cases well, and I said that I would expound on the subject of gals in television shows in this edition of T.H.A.T., and this talk is commentary that is filled with suppositions and guesses and conclusions. The subject of my talk is really my wondering why do I not see many good-looking gals on television shows in prime time these days. This talk may not be that which will interest gals, but a gal who reads it will better understand what is happening in the television industry today, and, of course, the subject should appeal to regular guys.
Let me present a specific question that is the heart of the discussion: Why do so many gals on prime-time television shows seem to be really skinny and have no breasts (or boobs or whatever you call them) and look like girls?
Here is a reminder: In the previous edition of T.H.A.T. I noted how Laura Leighton and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz were on the cover of TV Guide for August 24-September 6, 2009), and they looked very thin and unattractive, and I told readers to see page 25 of that edition to see the photograph of Katie Cassidy, who, in the photograph, had really thin thighs or, in essence, no thighs, and I will say that the photograph made me think she was ill (and, certainly, she was not attractive, though maybe Katie Cassidy thought she was attractive to real guys).
Let me present examples of gals that are presented in prime-time series this season who look like they have not grown up (though their age may be greater than eighteen years of age) or have yet to mature into women or are thin and lack female shape. In Mercy, which is a new series on NBC-TV, Taylor Schilling and Jaime Lee Kirchner have no shape and no boobs. The Beautiful Life, which is a new series on The CW, there are several gals who look like girls and have no shape, and in the edition of TV Guide for September 7-13, 2009, you can see that one gal seems to be ugly as shown in a photograph on page 47, and that gal is Mischa Barton. Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie of Community (which is an NBC-TV series) are thin and lack upper shape. Nina Dobrev is the main gal being pushed on the real guys through The Vampire Diaries, which is a series on The CW, and she is another thin model-type gal. The main gal on Dollhouse (a Fox series) is Eliza Dushku, and she is another thin model-type gal with little breasts, and the series has at least two Asian-like gals, one of whom is Dichen Lachman, who are like teenage girls. The main gal of Fringe (which is a Fox TV series) is shapeless. Kaley Cuoco is the main gal on The Big Bang Theory (which is a CBS-TV series), and she had little shape. NCIS may be a hit series for CBS-TV, but Cote de Pablo has no boobs. For a number of years, Calista Flockhart has been on television, and, again this year, she is a regular on Brothers & Sisters (an ABC-TV series), and she is very, very thin and has no boobs. Robin Tunney is a regular on The Mentalist (a CBS-TV series), and she is another nearly shapeless model-type gal.
And I have to talk about America's Next Top Model. There are fourteen main gals with this "cycle" of the series, the set of shows for fall 2009, or there were fourteen for the start of the season. All are thin, and when I saw the second episode (having missed the first because I was traveling), I saw "Rachel," and I saw a Rachel who looked ill, being too, too thin, and that is bad.
That is almost it for now, or I think I have presented just enough examples (though I could present a lot more), but I note that I saw the first episode of the new season of Medium on Friday, September 25, 2009, and the gal who ended up being the person whom the police thought was the killer was an actress who had no shape and no boobs.
To me, finding women shaped like women on television is hard to do, and there must be reasons why that is so, and I now give some reasons why it may be so:
1. Many lesbians and gays are involved in the television industry, such as in the production area, such as casting, and the lesbians working behind the scenes, having no idea what real guys like, are probably picking gals who have no shape, because that is what they want (pseudo guys), and gay guys working behind the scenes are picking gals who look like guys.
2. Since the 1960s, the feminist movement has been ongoing in the country, and the gals pushing the feminist movement may not like to look like females-with shape and boobs and nice thighs--and they have pushed the idea of females not looking like females and being females.
3. Too many people in the production jobs and too many actresses think that models--having no boobs and shape--are pretty or sexy to real men, working on defective information (such as surveys) that suggest real guys like gals who look like models.
4. People in Hollywood are trying to push the idea that the young-girl look should be the standard of beauty in the country, which makes me wonder if the people in Hollywood are pushing the idea of men lusting after little girls (which is a sick idea).
5. Because of the feminist movement, young men may have come to fear women who have shape, and young men may only be able to deal with gals who have not developed or look like girls.
6. Of course, the people in production jobs are trying to bring in the youth market, and because of that, they want characters who viewers can identify with--young girls.
Those are some of the reasons.
I have seen a few good-looking gals this season, one of whom can look erotic. Eastwick is a new series on ABC-TV, and one of the regulars is Lindsay Price (who seems to be part Asian). In the episode of the series for Wednesday, September 23, 2009, Lindsay Price was wearing a very tight dress and had her long hair (which was straight), and that was during a sequence that had some shots taken at a fountain (so she got wet). Hey! A looker! By the way, in the edition of TV Guide for September 21-27, 2009, there is a photograph of Lindsay Price wearing a tight-fitting blue dress on page 50, and by seeing it, you can get an impression of what I am talking about in relation to Lindsay Price. Okay, I have to say this--Lindsay could use just a little bit more boob volume, but I would still like to see her naked anyway. Lindsay Price is worth seeing, but that does not mean Eastwick is worth seeing.
I must add this side note related to the previous paragraph. The photograph in TV Guide was taken after the episode of Eastwick that I talked about had been made, so it seems Lindsay lost some weight, which I think is bad, because Lindsay has lost a little of that squeezable look (her face shown in TV Guide was lacking a little necessary fullness). I do hope she does not take up the thin look and lose boob volume.
While looking through editions of TV Guide, I have seen photographs of some gals in series who may have some worthwhile shape, but till I see them in their series, I cannot report whether they do or do not, and I will say that some of the possible gals with enough shape are Elizabeth Mitchell (of V) and Sonya Walger (of FlashForward), but photographs can be deceiving.
And a few other gals worth looking at by real guys are Eva LaRue of CSI: Miami, Sofia Vergara (who plays Gloria on Modern Family, which I find to be a no-thank-you show, given it is not "fun"), and Tamala Jones, who, for example, wore a tight dress in an early scene of the episode of Castle that was shown on September 28, 2009, on ABC-TV.
Oh, something occurs to me. Because of, in part, the feminist movement and the vegetarian movement, both of which are nonsense, and because a lot of young gals are not being made to do work while growing up and gain at least some muscle, the country has a lot of young women who are weak in body and look like boys, and probably because of the feminist movement, it has come to pass that a lot of young gals think that they should look like boys.
Of course, a lot of young guys look scrawny, too.
Here is an aside. A few weeks ago, someone asked how I stay thin (which is not the scrawny thin, but the thin with muscles and no bulging stomach), and I said such things as I do not drink beer (never having like the taste) and have always done work, and even today, I still shovel show (with a shovel), mow the lawn, do dishes each day, fix cars, rake leaves (using a rake), lift things, et cetera. It seems I am somewhat incorrect in my thinking, though. It seems I am the way I am because I look at boobs (breasts), and I get that idea from a woman who did work in Germany in relation to 200 men and their life spans and published in an article in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2007, and one of the researchers, Dr. Karen Weatherby, noted that men who ogle big boobs up to ten minutes a day extent their lives by at least five years. Since looking at boobs increases heart rate, it means that my looking at boobs uses up energy and helps me stay thin. Wow! Guess what I am going to do today that U.S. Representative Barney Frank (a Democrat related to Massachusetts) is not? And, yes, next summer, I am going to set up a nude beach for shapely women and me, and I will live to be 200!
I have this thought--While a guy watches those television shows with those gals that have no boobs, are those shows killing him?
And then there is this story and thought. On Saturday, September 26, 2009, Roman Polanski was arrested in Switzerland, because he had once had sexual intercourse with a girl of thirteen years of age around 1978. I am not into the little girls, and whether or not Roman Polanski's event with the thirteen-year-old girl was consentual or not, I say that it was not right on Roman Polanski's part to do what he did, but it does not mean I would not like to be a judge for the next "Miss Nude Michigan Pageant" or--Wow!--the "Miss USA Nude Pageant" (and that is what you should expect from a real guy and maybe one of the last real guys in this day and age of feminized men in America).
Let me make it clear: The sexy gals that I have mentioned are not being evaluated for what is in their minds (and what is in a gal's mind is important to me), and, also, I do not know what makes up the mind of two other cuties with shape that I saw on television recently--I sort of watched the episode of The Good Wife on September 29, 2009, and I saw two interesting gals with shape who were playing secretaries or assistants or whatever, and one was a somewhat tall black gal, and one seemed to be Indian (of Southeastern Asia), and I have no idea who they are, since they were not listed in the credits, and they were more sexy than the star gals.
Some might think Victoria Rowell, who was once a regular on Diagnosis Murder (which featured Dick Van Dyke) of the 1990s, is a cute or sexy gal, but it seems she is a nitwit, evidence of which can be found on page 60 of TV Guide for October 5-11, 2009, where there is a photograph of Victoria Rowell wearing a dress having images of Barack Obama on it (worn at the recent Emmy event), and since Victoria Rowell promotes Barack Obama--the communist and an insane man who it is evident today is hurting you and the country--you should not feel bad by boycotting her product or any shows on which she appears--Remember: Hollywood is attacking you, so feel not bad for attacking back, and it is what Victoria Rowell believes that makes her ugly.
Announcement for the novice again: To get useful 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.
Here is a history note. On the cover of TV Book (which was distributed by the Detroit Free Press) for September 27-October 3, 2009, it was noted that, in two weeks, the Detroit Free Press would stop issuing TV Book for outstate subscribers and that people can take up subscribing to a magazine called ON TV Magazine. In addition, for Sunday, September 27, 2009, the front page of the Detroit Free Press had an article entitled "New way to get TV listings" ("New way to get TV listings." Detroit Free Press, 27 September 2009, p. 1A.), and the article noted that, starting today, the newspaper would not longer deliver a TV Book for outstate readers, since the Detroit Free Press is cutting its budget, and the article noted that subscribers could choose to subscribe to ON TV Magazine, which would be available as a sample on October 11, 2009, but subscribers must request it, such as by going to www.iwantmytvmazine.com/Michigan.
Did your favorite newscast cover this event? On Thursday, September 10, 2009, people around the country learned through The Rush Limbaugh Program and The Sean Hannity Show (which are nationally syndicated radio shows) that, at Biggovernment.com, people could learn about a recent event in which a filmmaker (a guy) and his associate (a gal) talked with ACORN people. It was an undercover event done at an ACORN office in which the guy pretended to be a pimp and the gal pretended to be a prostitute, and they wanted help about setting up their business and in the city, Baltimore, Maryland. The woman of ACORN (who sounded like a black woman) told them how to hide a prostitution business, such as by calling their business a "performing arts" business. Also, the guy said that he is bringing about 16 gals from El Salvador to the country to work in their business, and the woman of ACORN said that the two could claim them as "dependents" for tax write-offs (the gals would be under age). (Barack Obama worked closely with ACORN in Chicago in his career, and members of ACORN have been defendants in court cases related to voter fraud.) On Friday, September 11, 2009, more news about ACORN covering the same type of subject was released, and, for instance, Sean Hannity covered the news on his radio show, and, over the next week or so, more events about ACORN were released, and the events covered such other cities as Brooklyn and Washington. D.C.
Consider two facts. On Tuesday, September 15, 2009, Charlie Gibson, who was the host of World News (on ABC-TV), did a telephone interview with the morning hosts of WLS-AM, and he made this statement in relation to the ACORN scandal made public by, for instance, radio talk-show hosts in the country: "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. I don't even know about it. Ah, so, you've got me at a loss. I don't know. Ah, but, but, my goodness, if it's got everything, including sleaziness in it, dah, we should talk about it this morning..." Charlie Gibson finally did have to get to the ACORN subject as a part of World News (of ABC-TV) on Wednesday, September 16, 2009.
Announcement (again): Since national broadcast television networks do a poor job of covering information about many important topics, I will try to take up the work of filling in some of the holes. I urge you to see www.saveourhealthcarenow.com and www.noperformancetax.org, because they have important information about the country. The former has information about the health-care industry in the United States of America, and you should and must see it, and you are urged to sign the petition that exists there, and the latter has information about a proposed tax system related to radio stations and music, and the latter will show you what nonsense that U.S. Representative John Conyers (a Democrat of Michigan) is trying to push on the country.
On Sunday, September 13, 2009, one guest on Face the Nation (a weekly show on CBS-TV) was David Axelrod (the White House Advisor), who was asked about the big rally that had taken place on Saturday, September 12, 2009, and one statement that he made was: "...I don't think it's indicative of the nation's mood. In fact, I don't believe that some of the angriest most strident voices we saw during the summer, ah, were representative of the thousands of town-hall meetings that went on around the country that came off peacefully that were constructive, people, ah, voicing their, ah, points of view. One of the great things about our country is people can express themselves, even if they're not representative of the majority. Your own poll, which was taken after the President's speech, suggests that they don't represent, ah, a main-stream view, ah, of this health-care plan. And so, ah, you know, I, I, I don't think we ought to be, ah, distracted by that...."
By the way, to learn about enemies of the United States of America, you should see my document entitled Enemies of the United States of America: Politicians Who Have Hurt You and Your Family by Voting "Yes" on Bad Federal Bills, which can be reached by using this link: Enemies:
So, did your favorite television newscast report that somewhere between one-million persons and two-million persons took part in the rally in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, September 12, 2009? (Blumer, Tom. "NYT Home Page Virtualy Ignores Sept 12 DC Rally, Gives Obama MN Speech Nearly Top Billing." NewsBusters, 13 September 2009, 11:35 ET.; Gardner, David. "A million march to US Capitol to protest against 'Obama the Socialist.'" MailOnline (The Daily Mail of the United Kingdom), 14 September 2009 (last update).)
Something to do: The conservative black who was beaten up around early August 2009 at a "tea party"-type event was Ken Gladney, and the event took place in Melville, Missouri, and you should look up information about Ken Gladney's experience so that you can learn more about what types of people are aligned with Barack Obama, who--I say--is at least a communist thug.
On September 6, 2009, George Will a commentator) appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos and commented on a conference call that he had learned about recently, and GeorgeWill said: "...Recently, there was a conference call arranged by the National Endowment for the Arts with a representative of the White House for potential grantees or actual grantees of the federal government getting subsidies. The theme of it was--How the arts community could help advance the President's agenda. I don't know how many laws that breaks, but I'm sure there are some...."
Okay! Did your favorite television-based news source cover this topic? On Monday, September 21, 2009, during The Rush Limbaugh Program, Rush Limbaugh played an audio clip from August 10, 2009, of the Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement Buffy Wicks (who was working under Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement), and she was talking to NEA-related people, and some of her words were: "...You know, eh, we won, and that's exciting, and now we have to take all the energy, hum, and make it very meaningful. Change does not come easy. And, you know, when, when then Candidate Obama would say that, ah,...change does not come easy, but now that I'm actually in the White House and working, ah, towards furthering this agenda, this very aggressive agenda, I, I really realize that I'm also really appreciative of the way in which that we, ah, did win and the strategy that the campaign chose, which was really to engage people at a local level and to engage them in the process. Hum, we need them, and we need you. And we're going to need your help, and we're going to come at you with some specific tasks...." and "I'm at the Office of Public Engagement, here at the White House. Hum, our office does a lot of outreach to communities all across the country, hum, either by constituency group or by issue. Hum, there's about twenty folks. We work under Valerie Jarrett...." On Monday, September 21, 2009, I was listening to The Mark Levin Show (a nationally syndicated radio show) on WHAS-AM, 840, and Mark Levin played a piece of audio that had this somewhat recent statement made in a telephone meeting by Michael Skolnik, who was the Political Director for Russell Simmons (a music mogul), and the talk was given to artists: "...I've been asked, hum, by folks in the White House and folks in the NEA [National Endowment for the Arts], hum, about a month ago a conversation that was had, hum, the idea, you know, that I would help bring together the artist community...." The idea presented through more audio was to get the artist community to create works focusing on Barack Obama--to push Barack Obama and Barack Obama's image--and it was a telephone conversation that showed federal money was going to be given to artists to make art that would focus on Barack Obama and Barack Obama's image. Here was a bit more of the audio clip: "...And so, I'm hoping that through this group, ah, and that the goal of all this, the goal [of] this phone call, is through this group that we can create a stronger community amongst ourselves, ah, to get involved in things that we're passionate about as we did during the campaign but to continue to get involved in those things, hum, to support some of the President's initiatives but also to, hum, do things that we are passionate about and to push the President and to push his administration...." It is clear to me that work was being done to have federal-government money, which would come from the National Endowment for the Arts, go to efforts to push one particular political person--Barack Obama. (It is all reminiscent of how Mao was pushed on the public through the arts in China, such as in the 1960s.) In addition, Mark Levin played a comment by Yosi Sargent, who was associated with the National Endowment for the Arts: "...Like I said, this is a community that knows how to make a stink, this is just the beginning, this is the first telephone call that the brand new conversation. We are just now learning how to, ah, really bring this community together to speak, ah, with the government, ah, what that looks like legally. Ah, we're still trying to figure out the laws of putting government Web sites on Facebook. So bare with us, as we learn the language, ah, so that we can speak to each other safely...."
Now, I must talk about The Jay Leno Show. The series, which is a weekday series that is shown for one hour at 10:00 p.m., made a debut on Monday, September 14, 2009. on NBC-TV. The show has Jay Leno as the host, and the show has a regular band, which is headed by Kevin Eubanks. The first show opened with a monologue segment featuring Jay Leno, and some of the other segments were an out-of-the-studio segment featuring Dan Finnerty and the Dan Band, a interview with Jerry Seinfeld, a segment in which Jay Leno pretended to interview Barack Obama (using clips of Barack Obama from a 60 Minutes show that had aired on CBS-TV the previous night), a Kanye West interview segment (who had the day before shown himself to be an ass through his treatment of Taylor Swift at the MTV Music Awards), a musical segment featuring Kanye West doing a "rap" music piece, and "Headlines" (in which Jay Leno looked at some stories and headlines from newspapers). I say that the show was flat. For example, Jay Leno did his interview with Jerry Seinfeld without a desk in front of him, and Jay Leno looked uncomfortable, and the Dan Finnerty segment was not funny, and music from Kanye West was "rap," which had that unlikable street-gang feel. I do not give a review of the second show, since I purposely decided not to watch it, because one of the guests was Michael Moore, who is communist filmmaker and who supports Barack Obama, who is a communist, Marxist, and worse. In this day and age, when people are coming to understand Barack Obama is an enemy of the United States of America, I think Jay Leno did not do himself well with the guests or fake guests who were involved in the first two shows, and I think NBC-TV, whose news division is highly aligned with Barack Obama, is not going to get what it hopes out of The Jay Leno Show (or at least I hope so). Remember: Jay Leno had two communists on his show in two days, and that makes me reject The Jay Leno Show from now on.
Here is a follow-up to the previous paragraph. On Thursday, September 24, 2009, Rush Limbaugh was one of the guests on The Jay Leno Show. During the show, Rush Limbaugh passed along a lot of truths about the country, such as how Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, which are sort of federal-government entities, were instrumental in the economic crash of 2008, and it was evident Jay Leno tried to break Rush Limbaugh, but Rush Limbaugh is a much smarter man than Jay Leno is. Jay Leno seemed perturbed by some of the answers and statements that Rush Limbaugh gave, which is not surprising since Jay Leno seems to support people like Barack Obama and communists. By the way, Jay Leno brought up the subject of the high pay that some Wall Street people get, and Jay Leno seemed perturbed by Rush Limbaugh's answer, though Jay Leno is one of the highest paid entertainers (who are hardly high-thought thinkers) on television.
Advertisement (a sustainer): Once again, I present an advertisement, which is a free advertisement, and what it leads to is something that is not necessarily free, since freedom does have a price. Mark R. Levin of The Mark Levin Show (a nationally syndicated radio show) had his latest book released in March 2009, and it is called Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, and the focus of the book is on the individual, such as you, who is losing rights in the country because of government policies, especially those that have been pushed through by left-leaning politicians--Barack Obama, Democrats, Marxists, and such. The book is a best-seller, though the main media outlets have not given Mark R. Levin any publicity, as they do to so many other books. Get the book!
On Tuesday, September 15, 2009, Mark Levin of The Mark Levin Show, which is a nationally syndicated radio show, reported information from Hotair.com. Some of that information noted what Republicans voted against Joe Wilson in the U.S. House of Representatives in a disciplinary action. They were (seven Republicans): Joseph Chow (Louisiana), Joanne Emerson (Missouri), Jeff Flake (Arizona), Walter Jones (North Carolina), Tom Petrie (Wisconsin), Dana Roerbacher (California), Bob Engliss (South Carolina). In essence, you might think that they are at least somewhat bad for having voted to put down Joe Wilson, but I might even put them in the category of "enemies" of the United States of America, depending on what information I find in my document entitled Enemies of the United States of America: Politicians Who Have Hurt You and Your Family by Voting "Yes" on Bad Federal Bills, which can be reached by using this link: Enemies.
Here is a note of history:
On Monday, September 14, 2009, on CNBC, Barack Obama said something about the Kanye West mess related to the MTV Music Awards, and it was sort of an off-the-record comment done at a time when John Harwood of ABC-TV was interviewing Barack Obama. Here is what was said.
Barack Obama: "...I thought that was really inappropriate. You know. I thought I mean that's like she's getting a reward, what, what are you butting in. I, I, I hear ya. I, I agree with ya." (There was laughter from the people nearby.)
Robert Gibbs: "Does that count as the first question?" (There was some more laughter.)
Barack Obama: "That, the young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She's gettin' her award. What's Kanye doing up there? He's a jackass!...."
Barack Obama's using "jackass" about Kanye West does not change the fact that Barack Obama is a "jackass" and worse.
Public Service Announcement: Rules for Radicals, which is a book put together by Saul Alinsky (a communist) about 35 years ago, is a book that Barack Obama is very familiar with and follows, and if you wonder what you can do in relation to Barack Obama, I say, "Well, see my document entitled Rules of a Radical Destroyer: The Barack Obama Case, which can be reached though this link: Radical."
It seems to me the health-care debate in the country is going to be even more heated in the days to come, and protesters of the health-care bills will probably continue to be called "angry mobs," "right-wing radicals" (though really it is "left-wing" people who are really radicals, since they dislike The U.S. Constitution, are socialists or communists, et cetera), and un-American. The episode entitled "A Change of Mind" of the 1960s television series entitled The Prisoner (which featured Patrick McGoohan as Number 6) dealt with a medical issue--social conversion. And from the episode of The Prisoner entitled "A Change of Mind," there is this dialogue presented by an announcer over the Village public-address system; "Your attention please. Here is an important announcement. Number 6 has been declared Unmutual until further notice. Any unsocial incident involving Number 6 should be reported immediately to the Appeals Sub-committee. Thank you for your attention." I again urge you to buy the box set of The Prisoner and watch it and show all the episodes to children. The show is much better than almost all the series on prime-time television today, such as Community, which will be one topic of the next edition of T.H.A.T..
Let me remind you of some text that I presented in the previous edition of T.H.A.T.. "My research has convinced me that Barack Obama's wish to switch to a federal-government-run health-care system would be a bad idea, since such systems are failing in such countries as Canada and England (to see the problems with the health-care system in the U.K., you should see the many real newspaper articles and such that are available through liberty-page.com (I talked about the topic more fully in Michigan Travel Tips #60, which can be reached at this link: Travel #60)). To date, I have yet to see a good and long and detailed television program about the health-care system in the U.K. presented on MSNBC, CNN. NBC-TV, CBS-TV, or ABC-TV, which would really show how the government-run health-care system in the U.K. is falling apart and how individuals, especially the elderly, are being treated terribly."
Reminder: Since late 2008, I have put within editions of Michigan Travel Tips information about "green technology," "global warming" stuff, and "climate change" stuff, and to get to the catalog for all the Michigan Travel Tips publications, use this link: Travel.
By the way, it seems very unlikely your favorite television news source covered a speech by U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell that was made on Tuesday, September 22, 2009, on the floor of the U.S. Senate, and to learn about it, you should see the document entitled Patriots of the U.S.A. and the Counter-Counter Revolution, and the main theme deals with Humana Corporation and freedom of speech.
Did your favorite television news source cover this topic? The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009 on September 17, 2009, and now the bill has to be passed on to the U.S. Senate. If the bill passes the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate and is signed by Barack Obama, the federal government will have direct control of the student loan industry in the country. And if the bill becomes an "act" (law), the federal government will control who will and will not get loans and what studies a person may be able to take up (by deciding whether or not a person will receive a loan based on what studies the person hopes to take up).
On Saturday, September 26, 2009, I watched the three prime-time series shown by NBC-TV, and each show was a repeat of the first episode of the season for each series, and I did not pay close attention to the shows, since I was only interested in catching the opening credits and end credits of each show for my files. I was put off by Law & Order, which seemingly put down former Vice President Dick Cheney and the idea of waterboarding. The episode of Mercy was bland, and the gals had no shape, and I think I caught a piece of dialogue that promoted Barack Obama as someone who would be tough enough to beat somebody referred to (but I am not sure, and I do not care). The episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit started off with violent rape stuff, and the unlikableness of what was presented led to my switching to another channel (till near the end of the episode when I had to return to record the end credits). So how is that "hope and change" for better ratings going, NBC-TV? See ya, NBC-TV! (By the way, the edition of TV Guide for September 28-October 4, 2009, presented information about the ratings for the first four days of The Jay Leno Show, and the results hinted at not-so-great things to come for NBC-TV, and since NBC-TV had the ratings information way before I did, maybe NBC-TV worked to get Rush Limbaugh on The Jay Leno Show for Thursday, September 24, 2009, so that more "conservatives" would tune in. And, by the way, on Friday, September 25, 2009, Rush Limbaugh made this statement during his radio show: "Being brainwashed or mentally deranged is the only way anyone could possibly think Barack Obama is good for the United States of America.")
Oh, in the edition of TV Guide for September 28-October 4, 2009, there was a card-type advertisement for "The Michelle Obama Inaugural Doll." Yes, the Obamas, who are communists/Marxists/socialists and who dislike the private sector and the idea of capitalism and the United States of America, are involved in a capitalist venture. What crap the Obamas are! (Keep in mind: Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are raising two hoped-to-be great and wonderful little communists--two daughters.)
I say: Who would ever want a doll of Michelle Obama, an ugly woman? I say, "Boycott it!"
Let us look at a question that your local "happy-faces" television news people, like those in Detroit, will not cover. How can socialists in the international community make Barack Obama look good to the people of the U.S. or influence a decision of his? What they do is give Barack Obama a "Nobel Peace Prize." On Friday, October 9, 2009, it was public knowledge that Barack Obama had been awarded a "Nobel Peace Prize," and he had been awarded it for, for one, proposing the reduction in nuclear weapons, or, in other words Barack Obama had done nothing--he had simply "proposed" the idea and had not accomplished anything. Some people in the U.S. will think Barack Obama is great for having won the prize, though in the entry for Friday, October 2, 2009, in my document entitled A Little History of Barack Obama Events: A Show of Deconstruction, I show that Barack Obama is not liked by many countries who were once favorable to the U.S. till recently. In addition, on Friday, October 9, 2009, during the first hour of The Rush Limbaugh Show, Rush Limbaugh played an audio clip, and that clip was the announcement of Barack Obama's winning of the Nobel Peace Prize, and when the announcement was made, a number of people at the place where the announcement was made gasped, showing disbelief (and I do believe such an action is unprecedented in Nobel Peace Prize history, and the gasping was another piece of evidence that people do not like Barack Obama).
Wake up! You may have missed this video stuff. On Friday, September 25, 2009, Fox News and some radio talk-show hosts were reporting on another incident in which children--these in Berlington, New Jersey, at the B. Bernice Young Elementary School) in June 2009 were being taught to sing the praises of Barack Obama, like singing the praises of Mao in China in the 1960s, and, for instance, on this day, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity covered the subject, and one of the songs was set to the music of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," and, then, on Monday, October 5, 2009, CNN played a video of more children--these of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Georgia--singing in praise of Barack Obama's policies--a national-health-care system--and the video was played on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer. To learn more about the topic of political indoctrination of children today, see the section called "Rule Number One" in my document entitled Lessons for Children about Politics and Dangerous People, which can be reached by using this link: Children.)
A final reminder: Remember to tell your children and grandchildren that they should never pledge to be a "servant to Obama" or a servant to any president, which was a topic in T.H.A.T. #58, and remember to tell them to not blindly "believe" in leaders, and that is a lesson in this edition of T.H.A.T., as it was in the past and will be in the future. By the way, remember, in the "Presidential Video," which is one topic of T.H.A.T. #58, one male says, "I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama."; one female says, "I pledge to be a servant to our president."
P.S. #1: The telephone number of the U.S. Congressional Switchboard is: 1-202-224-3121. (Use it to fight against the creation of a national-health-care system, especially a system pushed through law by a defective thinker, a man who has created nothing, and a man whose history is mostly filled with tearing things down, a man who continually puts down the U.S.A.--Barack Obama. By the way, one of the more recent events in which he put down the entire business community of the country took place on Wednesday May 13, 2009, and you should see the second entry for Wednesday, May 13, 2009, in the document entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama).
