    To be on television, a person need not be smart, and because of that, it is quite easy for a viewer to see dummies and idiots on television, even on news programs and talk-show programs, especially those tied to PBS and PBS-associated stations.  Some of the people who are very likely to be the idiots and dummies are people who can claim to have wonderfully important college or university degrees or credentials, which do not really show what amount of common sense that the holders of the degrees or credentials have.  In this edition of T.H.A.T., you will find a number of persons listed or talked about, and you will see many of them are idiots or dummies and maybe even evil, and that is what you can get on television, and fortunately for you, this entire edition of T.H.A.T. is not about dummies or idiots.

    Okay, here I go with one of those--Did your favorite television newscast report this stuff, or did it keep quiet, doing that, maybe, to keep you stupid about the crap that is around you?
    At the opening of the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I noted that Michigan State University is a crap school, because it had recently set the policy that it will require freshmen to have health-care-insurance plans starting in the fall or (1) the freshmen cannot be freshmen or (2) the school will give the freshmen health-care-insurance plans and charge them, and I note--Where does a university get the legal power to force a person to buy something not related to classes or "credits"?  Soon after I had published the previous edition of T.H.A.T., I added "Special Note #99" to my document entitled National Health Care and Mass Failure: The Reasons it is a Dead Issue, which can be reached by using this Health link, and I gives information that ties in with the Michigan State University topic, showing some of what the Director of Communications for Michigan State University--Kent Cassella--said in an interview on The Frank Beckmann Show (a weekday radio show that is broadcast on WJR-AM).  Here, I show the mindset--the bad mindset--of at least some people who are involved in teaching in the State of Michigan, and, particularly, what I am doing is showing the mindset of Debbie Squires (the Associate Director of the Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals Association), and what I show is a bit of what she said at a hearing for Education Committee of House of the Legislature of Michigan while being questioned by Tom McMillan (a Republican) in early February 2012.  Look at what was said (I was able to get the material while listening to The Rush Limbaugh Program on Wednesday, February 15, 2012):
    Debbie Squires: "...You know, educators go through education for a reason.  They are the people who know best about how to serve children.  That's not necessarily true of an individual resident.  I'm not saying they don't want the best for their children, but they may not know what actually is best from an education stand point."
    Tom McMillan: "How!  Parents don't know what's best for their child."
    Debbie Squires: "I said they may want what's best for their child.  They may not know...."
    And all this happened around the time that people were hearing, at least through "conservative"-based nationally syndicated radio talk shows, about an incident that had taken place for a four-year-old child in a school in North Carolina recently.  In January 2012, a girl went to her school--West Hoke Elementary School, Raeford, North Carolina--with a lunch that had been packed by her mother, and a federal-government-related food inspector would not allow her to eat the lunch, saying it was not good enough and did not meet federal standards, though it had, for instance, a turkey sandwich and a banana.  I like food like "chicken nuggets," but I dislike "chicken nuggets" being pushed on a child who already has what I considered a good lunch that was made by the child's mother.
    I wonder--Are educators smart?
["School Lunch Guidelines: Preschooler Told Homemade Turkey Sandwich Not Nutritious Enough, Given Nuggets Instead." The Huffington Post, 15 February 2012, 9:47 a.m., 12:05 p.m.; Education Group Action.  "Member of Education Establishment: Parents Don't Know What's Best for Their Children."  biggovernment.com, 10 February 2012, 1:42 p.m.; Seidl, Jonathan M.  "N.C. FOOD 'INSPECTOR' SENDS GIRL'S LUNCH HOME AFTER DETERMING IT'S NOT HEALTHY ENOUGH."  The Blaze, 14 February 2012, 2:27 p.m.]

    And then on Friday, February 17, 2012, at about 10:57 p.m., I was watching the this network, and it was running the movie entitled A Shot in the Dark (with Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom, and Elke Sommer), and at that time, the network ran a commercial for StarKist.  The product was a single-serving prepared food in a "flavor fresh pouch," maybe a "Lunch To-Go packet, which, for example, could be put in a lunch box with other food for a child, who would eat the lunch at school.  The commercial made me think of several things, such as how the German Nazi pitted children against their parents and taught children to turn in their parents to authorities if the parents went against the teachings of the Nazis, and the commercial made me think how the the lunch incident can be understood as the federal government working to get children to mistrust their parents and make the children, especially four-year-old children, think the children's parents are not doing good things for them.  Also, the commercial made me think how the StarKist product could make a bad federal government take action--if the federal government was that which did not like businesses that are in its control--ban the product from places, which would reduce the earnings of StarKist.  You may think my theme is "A shot in the dark," but it is not, given what Barack Obama is and how Barack Obama works, like a thug and dictator.

         Advertisement: In March 2009, a book called Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which had been written by Mark R. Levin, was published.  Through the book, Mark R. Levin talks about how tyranny has been creeping into the country, and he also talks about how the country has been changing from a representative republic, which has a constitution as a basis, to something, yet to be defined, and although Mark R. Levin says that it is the statist who is causing the change, especially those who are a part of the Democratic Party and in government jobs, I say that it is communists, socialists, would-be dictators, and Marxists, such as Barack Obama, who are making the changes, such as by discarding The U.S. Constitution.  I urge you to see and read Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, and pass it on to others, especially teenagers and young adults (and consider listening to The Mark Levin Show, the nationally syndicated radio show, on a regular basis).

    Okay, there is a lot of bad on television today, so let me take you back in time to a program that you should be aware of, and the program was good.  On January 8, 1970, NBC-TV aired an episode of a series called Dragnet 1970, and the episode focused on two police officers (Jack Webb playing Sgt. Friday and Harry Morgan playing Officer Gannon) who were looking for a missing young man, who, it seemed, was involved with illegal drugs.  One part of the program had the two officers talking with a professor (who was played by Vic Perrin) and a woman named Nancy Harris (played by Kelley Sebring) .  Look at some of the dialogue of the scene:
    Professor Ralph Thurston: "Well, what brings the local police to our institution of higher learning?"
    Nancy: "They're trying to locate Johnny."
    Professor Thurston: "Aldrich?"
    Sgt. Friday: "Yes, Sir, he's been missing about two weeks now.  Miss Harris was mentioning something about his grades."
    Nancy: "Well, as I was saying, he wasn't doing very well in Professor Thurston's class, and he was worried about what his parents would say."
    Professor Thurston: "That's right.  His last examination was terrible.  He started off this semister at the head of this class, but then he began to drop quite rapidly."
    Nancy: "Johnny thought he knew more about the subject matter than Professor Thurston.  He wouldn't give up."
    Officer Gannon "What was the subject matter?"
    Professor Thurston: "You two might possibly find it enlightening.  It was a lecture series of mine on the hoax surrounding the use of marijuana and drugs in our society."
    Sgt. Friday: "In what way did John argue with you?"
    Professor Thurston: "Well, first of all, I'm an expert on the subject.  I've done countless hours of research, and I've come to various conclusions that this myth about pot and pills is over-rated and dealt with in an unrealistic way.  Just some examples.  John argued violently when I pointed out that marijuana had absolutely nothing to do with developing desire for hard narcotics like heroin.  As I said, the boy just didn't have an open academy mind."
    Sgt. Friday: "Did he have a chance to present his side of the story?"
    Professor Thurston: "There was no reason to.  I'm the expert.  And it was my class."
    Sgt. Friday: "Well, now, maybe your studies didn't convince him."
    Professor Thurston: "Well, they should have.  I have statistical proof to back everything I teach."
    Sgt. Friday: "Professor, did you ever think about the fact that there are a lot of human elements in this world that just can't be measured statistically?"
    Professor Thurston: "So, yes, here we go again.  The typical cop has to stick up for those antique laws and archaic methods of dealing with modern social problems."
    Sgt. Friday: "No, Sir!  It's just that we see all those rotten things that tear people apart that are never dealt with in your academic studies.  And the sad part of it is--an individual of your intelligence and background has such a great influence on a young mind that hasn't experienced the real world.  It seems to me that Johnny's case was different.  He'd had a taste of that real world and he called you on it."
    Professor Thurston: "Sounds to me like you're assailing the academic community's influence on society, right?"
    Sgt. Friday: "No, Sir, I'm not.  It has its place and it makes its contribution.  It's an enormous contribution, if it's done with responsibility and real insight into the problem."
    Professor Thurston: "Permit me to offer you a piece of truth, Sergeant.  My training and sophistication in the field of social research gives me much more insight than any policeman could ever have."
    Sgt. Friday: "Professor, let me ask your something."
    Professor Thurston: "What's that?"
    Sgt. Friday: "What did you do after graduating from high school?"
    Professor Thurston: "I attended the university and obtained my degree."
    Sgt. Friday: "Then what?"
    Professor Thurston: "I continued my studies, completed the Master's program, and went on for my Ph.D.."
    Sgt. Friday: "And what kind of work did you do while you were going through school?
    Professor Thurston: "My, we have a regular interrogation going on here, haven't we?  Up until I took my Master's, I devoted all my time to study and research and then became a teaching assistant in the sociology department."
    Sgt. Friday: "And after you obtained your Ph.D.?"
    Professor Thurston: "I remained as an associate until I gained full professorship.  I ask you, Sergeant, what is your point?"
    Sgt. Friday: "The point is, Professor, that you've spent your entire life in an academic environment surrounded with research, studies, and intellectual discussions on the ills of society--walk outside the classroom and take a look at what really goes on before you publish your next study, will ya?  Take a look at the world of an addict like John Aldrich before you rule on antique laws and archaic methods.  Give it that much, Professor."
    Professor Thurston: "For your edification, Sergeant, I've seen a lot more than you may think I have.  It's not all as dreary as you make it out to be with your rash generalizations."
    Sgt. Friday: "Oh, I've seen it, too, Professor, so often my stomach turns every time I think of it--all  the things you can't put in a test tube or analyze in a computer.  Rich kids, middle-class kids, and poor kids--all attaching themselves to something they can't find any other way except by blowing grass or dropping a pill or mainlining heroin.  Now, if they get a chance, they grow up, maybe!  But what do they become?  Vegetables, welfare cases, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers that don't have the maturity or emotional balance to handle their own lives much less influence others.  They live in their own little world of rose-red paths and cloudy dreams.  When the dreams are over, what's left?  They're sick, they're sicko, they're broken, or they're dead.  Yeah, they build a nice future for themselves, don't they?  A future built on a foundation of weed, needles, and psychedelic logic.  That's a rich future, Professor, isn't it?  They've given these young minds a lot to build on, haven't we?  The intellectuals justify it, and the hoodlums reap the harvest!  Think about it, Professor Thurston.  The next time you make a study, dig a little deeper and a little harder.  Think about your role, my role, and why we're here. You know, when we're no longer here, there's only one measure, and it's not gonna come from a computer printout or intellectual's dissertation."
    Professor Thurston: "And what would that measure be, Sergeant?"
    Sgt. Friday: "A kind of contribution we've left behind us, Professor."
    Professor Thurston: "Don't let it worry you, Sergeant.  I know what I'll leave behind."
    Sgt. Friday: "Next time you see 'im, you tell that to John Aldrich, will ya?"
    This episode was written by Michael Donovan and directed and produced by Jack Webb, and it is a telling segment, given that California is now, such as because of academics who have pushed socialism and communism and other defective ideas, a dying state with high deficit and debt and a stalled economy, which is pushing people on their ways to other states, such as Texas, and, of course, it is a state pushing money out the door by giving free education and other things to people who are non-citizens of the country.  I wonder how Jack Webb would react to what California has become if he were yet alive--he did understand the nature of the academic such a long time ago.  This episode was part of what could be called the 1960s/1970s version of Dragnet, which is carried by Antenna TV, but it can be seen on the Internet, such as through hulu, and the episode is something that the Hollywood elites--left-wing radicals--in control of television in California would never write or produce today, too busy pushing left-wing propaganda and ignorance and promoting such enslavists as Barack Obama.

    Announcement for the novice again: To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, go to Fox News Channel, WorldNetDaily.com, "The Drudge Report," and CNS News (which is on the Internet and which was launched on June 16, 1998), since the entities do not blindly support Barack Obama, as do CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV (to learn about bad journalism, you might tune in to CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV from time to time to see how they differ from the Fox News Channel and those mentioned with it in presenting political stories and events, and you should discover CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV avoid covering things that make Barack Obama look bad or show his true nature, which could harm you).  If you are unclear of my intentions, I say in different words that you should boycott CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV and hope they lose more ratings and advertising revenues, since they are expendable, and it is time for you to find the guts to be mean and heartless and cancel them--since they are hurting you.

    Okay, yes, I know a lot about the history of Detroit television, national network television, and syndicated television, but I find news things to know almost everyday, and, recently, I did research on something that I had known nothing about--The Wilburn Brothers Show.  One reason that I knew nothing about the series is the series never played on television in the Detroit area when it was being made and being syndicated.  I have discovered The Wilburn Brothers Show was a country-music show that began to run in syndication on a weekly basis on May 4, 1963 (I had to find old articles about the series and see video on the Internet), and it was hosted by two brothers--Teddy Wilburn (the tallest of the two men) and Doyle Wilburn--who had a heyday, basically, from the 1950s to the 1970s.  The series came from an entity called Show Biz, which, in the 1960s, syndicated such other country-music shows as The Porter Wagoner Show, The Flatt & Scruggs Show, and The Grand Ole Opry.  In the early 1960s, The Wilburn Brothers Show was a half-hour series, as it always would be, and it took about three hours to produce each episode, which was done on weekends at WSM-TV, when studio time was available.  Two of the early regulars on the series were Harold Morrison and Loretta Lynn, and, in fact, it could be argued well it was The Wilburn Brothers Show that was instrumental in making Loretta Lynn a much-liked nationally known country-music performer.  At first, the series was syndicated on 19 stations in the South and the Southwest of the United States of America, and by the mid-1960s, the series was on about 40 stations, and in 1974, production on the series was shut down.  I can argue well what was important in making Loretta Lynn and the series successful is the original sponsor--an entity willing to advertise on the series--and the original sponsor was the American Snuff Company (of Memphis, Tennessee).  And now I know a little more than nothing about The Wilburn Brothers Show, which seemed to be a likable show, and the two hosts must have been likable, given the series ran about eleven years on television sets around the country.

    Here is a little television review, and it is little because not much need to said.  On Thursday, March 1, 2012, NBC-TV put on the first episode of Awake (featuring  Jason Isaacs, Laura Allen, and others), a proposed weekly cop series.  I struggled to pay attention to it.  It is another dark and depressing program with characters that I would not like to see from week to week.  Awake is another series that should be put to sleep.

    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.   (You should see my document entitled "CAP AND TRADE" and Carbon Dioxide Facts and Nonsense, which can be reached through this link: Carbon.)

    On Sunday, February 19, 2012, Channel 50 in Detroit (WKBD-HD) showed a program entitled The Buffalo Soldier: An American Legacy, which was hosted by Judge Joe Brown and narrated by Barry Corbin.  In essence, the program gave some history and events related to the "Buffalo Soldiers" of the Union in the 1800s.  While I watched the program, I noted to myself--The program shows just how far down in quality and worthiness many men in Detroit are when compared with the "Buffalo Soldier" and how much has been lost by many black men in Detroit since the day of the "Buffalo Soldier."  The program was a syndicated program that was presented by Rusty Spur Productions, and it was an adequate one-hour presentation.

    Incidentally, following the showing of The Buffalo Soldier: An American Legacy on WKBD-HD on February 19, 2012, WKBD-HD showed an episode of the locally produced Street Beat (which is shown weekly for a half hour), and the program--an interview program--was hosted by Syma Chowdhry, whose persona came off to me as a bit angry or cold, as it had during other times that I had seen the program--I detect something not so likable.

.     A reminder (updated): 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."  And make sure your children and grandchildren are not singing songs at school that praise Barack Obama, which has been done by children at some schools around the country since January 2009, since children should never sing songs that praise any politician, especially a megalomaniac and narcissist like Barack Obama.

    Announcement: Have you seen the public-service announcement on television in which a bunch of celebrities, such as Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek, and Clay Aiken, push the message about giving money to UNICEF so that poor children in, for example, African countries can eat or be fed?  (The advertisement shows some poor black children.)  UNICEF is tied to the communist controlled United Nations, which has had big-time money scandals, and, for decades, people tied to UNICEF have been soliciting money from Americans to give to people in poor countries, and little has been solved over the years and decades.  The pushers have been saying things like the children are caught in a mess that is not of their making.  I say that what is not told is that the civilizations that the celebrities are supposedly trying to help have been around for centuries, and defective political systems, defective religious systems, and tribal fights have caused and are causing what problems exist today, and the trouble in those countries is not because of the United States of America, as celebrities might hint, and until the problems are removed for the most part, sending money to feed the children does not solve the root problem.  There has been a lot of sending good money after bad, and if you wish to give to a charity, give to a charity in the U.S., as long as it has no ties to climate-change proponents and communists, and you might think about a small-town museum that promotes U.S. history and the past.  Incidentally, it looks as if at least most of the celebrities in the UNICEF public-service announcement are supporters of Barack Obama, a communist who already has shown that he is working to end tax deductions for charitable contributions (it seems he would rather have the federal government determine the way in which money gets passed out or given to charitable-type entities, wanting, in essence, the government to be instrumental in passing out all the money).

    On January 16, 2012, WADL-HD (Channel 38.1) fired up an evening newscast for weekdays called WALD News@9, and on February 20, 2012, the show had an idiot moment.  "Paczkis" (which is one of the spellings) are what I will call doughnut balls (about the size of somewhat flattened tennis balls or baseballs)--they are pastry with a filling, maybe cherry jelly, apple-pie-like filling, or whatever.  There are a number of places in Hamtramck and the Detroit area that make the pastry for and around "Fat Tuesday," and WADL-HD had a news report about one such place on February 20, 2012, and, in essence, the report ended the newscast.  After the report, which was a recorded report, was aired, the news anchor--Makenzi Henderson--said that she "never had one," and then the weatherman--Eric Garlick--said that paczkis are "not very healthy."  Most certainly, Eric Garlick had an idiot moment!  (By the way, "not very healthy" does not mean the paczkis are ill or sick.)

    Commentary and news: When the so-called "Arab Spring" was taking off in the Middle East months ago, people were saying that democracy was going to rise in the region, and I knew it was not likely, given the entities that were working to create so-called better countries had not already had in hand a written constitution with true "freedoms" contained within it like The United States Constitution, and if you have not heard, I now tell you that, in essence, the new Egypt is now heavily controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a radical Islamic group (or Sharia-type group) that promotes violence on and enslavism for people.  I do not recommend any vacation trips to Egypt.  Oh, Egypt as it is now is another victory for Barack Obama, who recently made declarations tied to births and abortions that put down, for example, the Catholic religion and Catholic religious practices in the U.S., and this action is against the rules of The United States Constitution, and that means that the U.S. is in another constitutional crisis caused by Barack Obama.  ["Muslim Brotherhood Dominates."  Detroit Free Press, 26 February 2012, p. 16A.]

    Here is something that your favorite television newscast probably did not pass along to you in a way that would show reality and sort of "connect the dots" in your head.  On May 22, 1964, U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson--an "enslavist" (or a socialist)--introduced his nonsense called the "Great Society" plan at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, and since the 1960s, the ignorance that is tied to such persons as Lyndon B. Johnson and other socialists has steadily grown, and it has lead to the deterioration of at least some big cities, such as Detroit, Michigan, and a part of the socialist's nonsense is pushing for a person's giving up time for the "cause" and for the "common good"--which is what the government rulers deem as important (for them in the long run).  Detroit is a dead city, evidence of which is the high number of unemployed and high number of functionally illiterate residents (and the city is deeply in debt, as it has been for years).  Instead of working to really improve Detroit, such as by making the environment better for businesses to grow and making truly good schools that do not push socialism and "economic justice" on the black community, managers of the city are spending time pushing to get people--residents of Detroit and residents of neighboring towns and cities--to volunteer to make Detroit better, and one of those instrumental in the nonsense is Charles Pugh, who is the Detroit City Council President and a former on-air personality at WJBK-HD (Detroit).  During the week of Monday, February 20, 2012, two town-hall-like meetings--hosted by Charles Pugh--were held to get ideas about helping Detroit, and on February 22, 2012, it was predicted that Detroit would run out of cash by about early April 2012.  It must be noted that, for the election of November 2008, ninety percent of the residents who voted in Detroit voted of Barack Obama, and, by the way, the election of November 2012 will certainly show how many ignorant and evil people live in Detroit.  Detroit surrounds a city called Highland Park, where WHPR-TV (Channel 33, analog) is located, and Highland Park is another dead city, where the political ideology is black-radical socialism, and, in past editions of T.H.A.T., I have shown the black racism--racism against so called "whites"--that gets exhibited on WHPR-TV, and on Friday, February 24, 2012, teachers for the Highland Park school system had to work and not get paid because of budget problems.  So, I say in jest--"Yes, give up some of your life and help out and volunteer or enslave yourself to those who do not do crap and would want you to do their work and clean up their mess and messed up lives."  [Bell, Dawson, and Bill Laitner.  "Highland Park schools might shut down." Detroit Free Press, 22 February 2012, p. 3A; Hackney, Suzette.  "Decision on emergency manager delayed a month."  Detroit Free Press, 25 February 2012, p. 3A; Laitner, Bill.  "Highland Park schools stay open; staff goes unpaid."  Detroit Free Press, 25 February 2012, p. 3A; Laitner, Bill.  "Meetings to push Detroiters to volunteer." Detroit Free Press, 19 February 2012, p. 14A; Meyer. Zlati.  "YOU HAVEN'T LIVED HERE UNTIL...You celebrate Presidents' Day Michigan-style." Detroit Free Press, 19, February 2012, p. 19A.]

    I saw some idiot television on Sunday, February 26, 2012, when watching an episode of the locally produced Detroit Wants 2 Know, which is a talk show hosted weekly by Steve Hood, on WADL-HD, Channel 38.1.  Steve Hood had an interview segment with Ernest Johnson (of an entity called "Community Coalition").  Basically, through the segment, Steve Hood pushed the idea that Michiganians--especially Democrats--should vote for Ron Paul in the Republican Party primary in Michigan on Tuesday, February 29, 2012, to help lead the Republican Party into a brokered convention this summer and make it more likely that Barack Obama would win the national election for the U.S. Presidency in November 2012.  Steve Hood supports idiot people, particularly Barack Obama, the communist and black radical, and that makes Steve Hood an idiot.  Oh, yes, Ernest Johnson is an idiot, too, promoting Barack Obama.

    On Sunday, February 26, 2010, while surfing the stations quickly, I just happened to tune into the six o'clock in the evening newscast on WJBK-HD, Channel 2, when Huel Perkins (one of the anchors for the station) was hosting a round-table discussion of sorts with some men, one of whom was Charlie Langdon (the legal-issues reporter).  The topic was violence in Detroit.  At one point, a video segment that contained comments by three young black men in Detroit, who seemed to be gang members, was shown, and the video showed off the ignorance and low-level tribal mentality of the men and their way of life; for example, the three young men gave the impression that they owned their territory, that people could sort of drive through their territory, and that people could be in trouble if they stepped out of their vehicles and on to the young men's soil.  Yes, three young men had the mentality that is--everyone should be or had to be chased off their territory.  Of course, their mentality leads to good people avoiding the area to shop and live, which further contributes to the death of Detroit--they are actually pushing way what could make their lives better.  Also, what can be said is the three young men own nothing and they are losing more of it every day.  It could be argued well--they are killing themselves, they are committing suicide.  During the round-table discussion, it was reported that so far for 2012, the number of murders in Detroit stands at 44, which is nine more than that of the same period for 2011 had been, and Huel Perkins seemed to be so distressed by the increase, and because of that, Huel Perkins came off as an idiot.  In the studio with Huel Perkins and Charlie Langdon were three black men, who, it seemed to me, were slightly older than the three street thugs shown in the recorded piece were, and one of the in-studio men made note that his group (whatever it was) was unconcerned with illegal drugs being sold and used and the "numbers games" being run in the city, saying there have been numbers games and illegal drugs for ages in Detroit (and I say that the illegal drugs have helped lead to the death of Detroit and they are continuing to make things worse--illegal drugs can lead to the deterioration of society and that has been known for years).  The round-table discussion was ignorance on display.  It was another sign of the underlying crap that is in Detroit.  And as Sergeant Joe Friday (played by Jack Webb) of Dragnet might say--"Those are the facts!"

    On Sunday, February 26, 2012, the Daytona 500 (the 54th edition) did not get run, and it finally was run on Monday, February 27, 2012, in the evening, and that was the first time the Daytona 500 was run on a postponed basis.  That is a "for the record" note.  Here is yet another "for the record" note related to auto racing.  Guys, you should be aware one of the prettiest professional race-car drivers is Danica Patrick (the "Go Daddy" gal), and, yes, she did race in the Daytona 500 in car Number 10 on February 27, 2012, which was broadcast by Fox TV.  It is too bad that, once you get Danica Patrick out of a race car, you have an idiot before you and a rather useless woman, as is evident when Danica Patrick responding to a question that focused on Barack Obama's recent unconstitutional action to force insurance companies to provide free birth control said on February 21, 2012, that "I leave it up to the, ah, government to make good decisions for, ah, ah, Americans...."  To teach such a defective idea to children, as she might by saying it to children or having the quoted material heard by children, is bad.  The next time that you see Danica Patrick on television, recall and think about how much of an idiot she is and how much of a loser she really is.  [Hofmann, Sarah (videographer).  "Danica Patrick on contraception mandate: 'I leave it up to the government to make good decisions.'" The Daily Caller, 21 February 2012, 10:57 p.m.]

    Did you happen to see Sandra Fluke on The View (a weekday program shown on ABC-TV) on Monday, March 5, 2012?  Sandra Fluke was then a thirty-year-old woman who was going to Georgetown University, and she had recently pushed in a staged press event with Democrats of U.S. Congress and was pushing in the media to have, in essence, other people pay for contraception materials for women, and she was a woman who became a big media event at the time when Rush Limbaugh (the nationally syndicated radio-show host) had, using an indirect-question segment, wondered if it were be possible to refer to Sandra Fluke as slut and more because she wanted Georgetown University to pay for contraception for women enrolled in the university.  On The View, Sandra Fluke said a number of things, such as "...I would encourage everyone to go to Media Matters, because they have an excellent story on their Web site that gives a list of the various commentators that are engaged in this type language--Glenn Beck, for, for one.  And I think it's really important for us all to understand that this was not one person [Rush Limbaugh] who went crazy and made funny outrageous statements, this evidently is  a segment of our political commentators who think that it's acceptable in today's society to say these things...."  Media Matters is a communist entity, and Sandra Fluke promoted Media Matters, and that means Sandra Fluke is a supporter of communism.  Notice how Sandra Fluke was going after not only Rush Limbaugh but also going after other "conservative" talk-show people, such as Glenn Beck, who was not the subject of or involved in the "Sandra Fluke" media event to begin with.

    Commentary and facts: A lot of ugly women can be found on television, and they are ugly because of their minds--what they believe in and what they live by--and, for Detroit-area television viewers, Rochelle Riley (who used to be a regular on Am I Right?, a weekly program produced for at least WTVS-HD, Channel 56.1, Detroit) is one of the ugly women.  Rochelle Riley is a regular columnist for the Detroit Free Press, and on Tuesday, March 6, 2012, the newspaper published a columnist written by Rochelle Riley entitled "Meet Rush Limbaugh, 21st Century's foolish bigot" (Riley, Rochelle.  "Meet Rush Limbaugh, 21st Century's foolish bigot." Detroit Free Press, 6 March 2012, p. 2A.).  Rochelle Riley lied about what advertisers were supposedly leaving The Rush Limbaugh Program.  Rochelle Riley wrote: "...Limbaugh uses hate speech to instill fear, to cause some Americans to hate others, to coerce others to his singular point of view.  So...Rush Limbaugh is a terrorist.   His bombast and hate speech five days a week helps foment civil war and serves no purpose other than to widen the rift between his followers and other Americans who disagree...."  The quoted material shows the Rochelle Riley is a propagandist and is working to push racial hatred--she is a race baiter.  In addition, Rochelle Riley wrote in the article: "...Limbaugh has been mostly unfettered.  So we have to wonder: To what end?  What is the point?  What does he want?  It suddenly hit me. He is the late Sen. Joe McCarthy, tilting at windmills and finding the enemy in anyone at whom he points a finger.  He is McCarthy, the Republican senator whose national campaign to out supposed Communists divided America...."  Today, I say that, since the 1950s, there has been a noticeable rise in the number of communists who are in jobs tied to the federal government, and it is well evident that Barack Obama is the head communist in the federal government, such as by his several moves that violate The United States Constitution, and Rochelle Riley supports Barack Obama, and that makes her black radical communist.  In addition, Rochelle Riley noted: "...The place America is headed is not the place America has been, not the America that most of us want our country to be...."  It is evident that Barack Obama and other Democrats are pushing the United States of American towards an all-power federal government, a tyranny, and "enslavism," and that is what Rochelle Riley--a truly ugly woman--is pushing for, so when you see Rochelle Riley on television, recall what she has shown her nature to be.

    And "for the record," I note that Bill Maher--the host of Real Time with Bill Maher for HBO--publicly reported that he was pledging $1,000,000 to an entity backing Barack Obama for U.S. President called "Priorities USA Action," so it is quite clear that Bill Maher supports communists in a big way, and it shows Bill Maher is a man who cannot be trusted--communists, such as Barack Obama, regularly lie or pass along bad information.  That is fact and not fiction.  ["1. Maher pledges $1M to Obama."  Detroit Free Press, 25 February 2012, p. 2D.]

    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 all the episodes to teenagers, or buy it as a present for teenagers.

Stay well!
