“The illusions we’re spinning here….”

I was prospecting for a quittin’ time song and came across this.

Somehow thought it might be appropriate. (the language, however, can be somewhat inappropriate)

Geez, what an angry little man.

Perfect for the Bookman blog.

But whining about the TV?

The Pinko Nation propaganda tool of the ages?

“When the 12th largeest company in the world controls the most awesome G-*** propaganda force in the whole godless world, who knows what s**t will be peddled for truth on this network?”

This movie in from ‘76. In 2008, the 4rth largest company in the world owned NBC, MSNBC, & CNBC, Universal, etc. General Electric may not be the 4rth largest anymore, certainly not by market cap. But GE still owns quite a chunk of the medium and can peddle any s**t they want. Ask Jim Kramer, who has returned to praising the President when just 3 weeks ago he said Obama’s policies were causing ‘a destruction of wealth like we’ve never seen’. Well, Jim has been put back in line. His mind is right. And he has gone back to peddling s**t for his network.

Thanks, Jay, for the clip. Howard Beal, a fictional character from 30 odd years ago, has certainly provided a timely nugget of truth.

“…and woe is us, if it ever falls into the wrong hands.”

Too late for that, Howard. Too late.

Hello Paul…I’e missed your astute take on world events. Then again, I haven’t missed the acerbic sputum found here so often. Unfortunately I found myself the source of some of that, hence my decision to quit cold turkey.

I hope you’re “You’ve been missed” wasn’t a reference to the line in Clerks. Terrific line…a fantastic example of caustic sarcasm.

Let me suggest that you try http://vincellar.vinfolio.com/do/vincellar/home , a website that allows you to build and maintain an inventory of your wines (for free!), no strings attached. Of course they want you to spend money in other ways, but their system rocks and you can download your files in several formats.

I’ll drop in occasionally, but I can’t believe how much more productive free time I have (with the added benefit of less aggravation).

No sarcasm, none at all.

I’ve found the tone has become much better over the past few months. Jay’s been diligent in banning people who can’t vent their frustrations without attacking others and other posters have seemed to make the change on their own. People have even gone so far as to say to an ‘opponent’ – ‘you know, that’s a good point.’ When people realize new understanding has nothing to do with position or superiority we all progress.

I know about the productive time stuff – I have to watch it or I get off track with deadlines and end up working evenings or weekends. But seeing as how I like current events and work by myself with little opportunity to discuss such things in a face to face setting, well, it’s a cost I incur.

Thank you for the link I have missed your recommendations.

Well, off to an evening with the series conclusion of Battlestar Galactica. You would’ve been great in the discussions some here have driven others nutty with!

Don’t be a stranger –

Still come thru DFW occasionally? Every time I see a full-size untrimmed brisket I think “I wonder if I could get that in a carry-on for N-GA…”
