That’s My Story

Today a network news contributor on one the Sunday morning political chat shows comely stated that the good news governance of this American President is never reported by the main stream media which prompted me to laugh out loud in fear of being overheard by neighbors. It’s my guest that favorable reports are written but before its publication, this American President tweets a remark that in appurtenance steps on the favorable report resulting in it being abandoned in favor of the new issues raised in his tweet(s)… Cause-and-effect…

America needs YOU

America’s success, American success can be summed up in a very simple word, immigrants, American immigrants if you will, immigrants to the United States to be more proficient in thought, from the bottom up hands on, on the backs of the menial laborers of immigrants to the innovative immigrant inventors. Look around your home or work place, count the number of inventions born and cultivated on these American shores by immigrants either legal or illegal, they got their start here in America, had the opportunity, the inspiration and yet some well-intended in our society from the top on down to the bottom are working day and night to poke a stick in the spinning spokes of American progress by violently curtailing immigration and by extension her growth that will only forge stagnation in medial health, automation, businesses, entertainment, military weapons, you name it, almost all inventions of note got their start here, then branched out into the industrialized world. I realized that this is an international blog, so, I invite you not happy in your home country to come and join us any way you can. Unthinkable, no, just promise that you will at least think about it, give it some serious thought about how you can contribute and better yourself and your posterity at the same time.

This American nation of immigrants should be opening its doors ever wider, inviting more immigrants instead of building walls to keep them out, bring on the immigrants to help in continuing, in the expansion of these already great American centuries and beyond… So, bring on your now infant idea of inventions and oh, yes, including the mothers of inventors, and fathers too, the more the merrier for a better way to know how to repair the old and bring in the much needed new.

STUNNED

I wrote the below post before watching The Rachel Maddow Show and if her reporting is to be believed, this administration engaged in another smoke screen with the allege family condolence insult. The issue is Niger and why are Americas there and why Chad was included in the recent revised travel ban, anything else should be considered just window dressing…

This American President can deliver a speech correctly, a scripted teleprompter speech, it’s when he goes off script, in a kinda free style mode if you will that he will find himself in trouble. You see, this American President has never been and I fear never will be known for his articulation of fine speech, meaning upon hearing him the question can be asked, what did he really mean to communicate by those remarks, hence, the term ‘dog whistle’.
From the Urban Dictionary: “Dog whistle is a type of strategy of communication that sends a message that the general population will take a certain meaning from, but a certain group that is “in the know” will take away the secret, intended message. Often involves code words”.

However, when it comes to this American President sometimes he does not understand the codes and how to use them or how they will be received by an audience of one or many. In short, to paraphrase, forgive him for he knows not what he says or how to say it. This American President does not have the ability nor the will to ask for forgiveness if his remarks were misinterpreted, if only he had said that or something like it, a one-hour story would not have been a three-day tryaide that it has become…

“In a tweet late Thursday, President Donald Trump accuses a Florida congresswoman of lying in her account of a phone call between Trump and the widow of a U.S. service member recently killed in Africa.
The same tweet also asserts that news organizations have been “going crazy” with U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson’s version of the story.
“The Fake News is going crazy with wacky Congresswoman Wilson(D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content!” Fox News web site with an Associated Press contribution…

Thirty ‘Hair’ Years

Thirty years ago, today there was ‘Black Monday’ on the 19th of October 1987, when the stock market crashed which gave reason today for any television journalist reporting the incident then to show their selves as they appear today which gives us the opportunity to compare. Almost to the man the standard remark was heard, ‘I had so much more hair then’. As for the women no such remark even through it must be equally true, however, they are women, so their lack of a receding hair line is well hidden under a wig. Some of the men too, it must be noted, very few of them dared to display the gray hair, as for the women, none showed any gray hair at all, it’s as if they are immune from baldness and gray hair, perhaps if more women did with pride display their hair problems it would not be such a cultural shock to the senses when they come out from under the synthetical like some men, it must be again noted some men. Imperfection of the body is so shameful that it either must be falsely hidden, or that it must be corrected if possible by a surgical procedure, although nobody’s body is perfect the spending of millions of dollars has produced industries dealing in all kinds snake oil cures, but who cares, it’s the results that counts.

Finally, who consumes more hair dye, television journalist, Hollywood or your congressional delegation? It’s a toss-up…

Excuse Me, Not Now

This is not rocket science, is as clear as the nose on your face, tobacco kills, guns kill, pharmaceuticals kill, but there is so much money to be made in their commercial civilian use that their manufacture cannot be curtailed as being just too big to be placed on a waning course of action and so they continue to prosper as more and more people die through their continued use and manufactured mass production…

I Watched It, But Not For Long

Yesterday during Rachel Maddow’s show she wanted us loyal viewers of hers to watch The Beat with Ari Melber at 6p, after I DVR’d it I realized that at that hour MSNBC would be running the program with a news crawl, I never watch anything with an annoying news crawl. More annoyances were displayed, the animated program title, the word ‘live’, a clock, breaking news banner, subject banner, speakers text, split screen images in stills and clips at the mention of a name, all of which led me to DVR Maddow’s rebroadcast at midnight in the first-place in avoidance of the news crawl. As for The Beat I did not stick around long enough to discover any other annoyance that was in store, this shows screen clutter would make it very hard for me to concentrate on the reporting, at every turn a whiz-bang distraction. I will just have to wait to see if The Beat is rebroadcast in the wee hours of the morning without some of these on-screen distraction’s… One more point, it took me years to get used to the Very Large MSNBC network logo on the screen, and it still annoys me, I know what network I’m watching, thanks for the reminder… I’ll live with it for now until something better comes around that is not interested in blasting its name about…
