SITTING IN JAIL

There is an Arizona mom and a citizen of the U.S.A. sitting in a Mexican jail on trumped up charges that where meant for extortion.

From what I have heard, the only official that has tried to do anything is Senator Jeff Flake.

Where the fuck are the American officials.

WHAT IS THE AMBASSADOR TO MEXICO DOING.

WHAT ARE THE REST OF THE ELECTED OFFICIALS FROM ARIZONA DOING

WHAT THE FUCK IS CONGRESS DOING AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHERE THE FUCK IS OBAMA AND WHAT IS HE DOING.

It seems like the answer these questions is a great big fucking NOTHING

Tabloid TV News-Part 2

Now we get to CNN.

Their latest and largest debacle was the Boston Marathon Bombing. It seems to me that they had reporters on just about every corner. And this includes Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper as well.

During the coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing, I watched mostly the coverage by CNN. In the past I have given CNN the benefit of the doubt that their reporters where intelligent and that they will have fair and honest coverage.

WRONG, WRONG, WRONG.

They spend as much time making shit up and making news out of nothing as any other station. Maybe they even where worse than the others. And stupid comments and questions where more that abundant.

A couple of police cars started to move and  I watched as one female reporter got so excited she could barley talk. All she could say was “SOMETHING’S HAPPENING. SOMETHING MUST BE GOING ON. THE POLICE CARS ARE MOVING. WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT’S GOING ON BUT THE CARS ARE MOVING SO SOMETHING IS HAPPENING.

Maybe someone was going for coffee and donuts. How fucking exciting.

Anderson Cooper reported that the police had a suspect that was “dark skinned”. In his rush to be the first with “BREAKING NEWS”, he never checked with the police or anyone else in authority to confirm this report. Shortly after announcing his “BREAKING NEWS”, he was apologizing for miss-information.

Wolf Blitzer was interviewing the Watertown Police Chief and he was describing the shoot out between 4 or 5 of his officers and the two brothers. First you need to remember that they were described as being armed and dangerous. During the car chase, they where shooting at the police and throwing bombs at the police from the moving car. The chief was describing how the brothers jumped out of the car shooting at the police. His exact words where “They came out shooting.” And of course Wolf Blitzer asked one of the stupidest questions I have heard in a long time. The question was “WHAT WHERE THEY SHOOTING.”

SPITBALLS YOU FUCKING IDIOT.

They where armed with guns and bombs and bombs don’t shoot. So it had to be guns. WHAT ELSE WOULD THEY BE SHOOTING.

And the stupidity continued on from there. When did it become the reporters job to make up the news when there is nothing to report. They are so busy trying to be two words ahead of the other stations that they are making shit up just to hear themselves talk.

Maybe it’s time for ALL reporters to go back to the 50’s and 60’s and see how the news was reported then. There are so many EXCELLENT news reporters that they could model themselves after. Edward R Murrow. Lawrence E. Spivak, Tom Brokaw, Chet Huntley and David Brinkley are just a few examples of great news reporters. Lets start reporting the facts and quite making shit up just to fill air time.

WHEN NOTHING IS HAPPENING, THERE IS NOTHING TO REPORT. SO KEEP YOUR MOUTHS SHUT UNTIL YOU HAVE SOMETHING  WORTH SAYING.

Tabloid TV News-Part 1

An open letter to just about every television news station through out the country and the so called “reporters” that work for them.

I remember when television news reporters actually reported the news. NO SPECULATION, NO GUESSING, NO MAKING STUFF UP TO FILL AIR TIME. JUST THE COLD HARD FACTS. A perfect example was Edward R. Murrow. Those where the good old days.

NO MORE

Now they go on the air and not only miss-report what is happening, miss-interpret what is said and then make stuff up as they go just to fill air space.

A few years ago, Headline News and CNN where one. At that time both where still reporting the news as it happened and seemed to be the only news stations that gave you both sides fairly and honestly.  Then Headline News and CNN got divorced.

First, let’s give credit where it is due. Robin Meade still gives what news she is allowed to, without unnecessary speculation. Kyra Phillips does her show the same way.

Now comes the big change. HLN hired Jane Velez-Mitchell and Nancy Grace as their “AUTHORITIES” on crime.These 2 so called reporters have instantly convicted anyone that has been accused of a crime. They DO NOT wait for all the evidence, and they sure as hell don’t wait for a trial and verdict. They SPECULATE on everything, from motive, weapons, people involved and anything else that comes to mind. They “INTERVIEW” anyone that they can shove a microphone in front of, no matter whether they have anything to do with the case or not. All they seem to be interested in is how much air time they can fill with their nonsense.

Now Vinny Politan has joined the circus and he seems to be trying very hard to catch the front runners.

There was the Drew Peterson trial, The Scott Peterson trial, the Casey Anthony trial and now their latest, Jodie Aries trial. This last one, had cameras in the court room and it was almost 24/7 coverage. When the trial was not going on, they where on the air guessing about what was going to be brought up. What the jurors MIGHT be thinking. What some of the witnesses and experts from both sides MIGHT be testifying to. And they spend untold amounts of time talking to people that had nothing to do with the trial, other than the fact that they lived in Arizona. They even went so far as to try and recreate the crime scene and then tried to recreate the crime in an allotted amount of time. IT WAS DAMN SHITTY ACTING WITH THEIR OVER DRAMATIZATION.

I don’t even know where to start when it comes to the Aurora Theater shooting or the Newtown School shooting.

And then there are the unending number of so called experts. Physiologists, psychiatrists, defense lawyers, prosecutors, retired law enforcement and any one else looking for their moment in the sun.

IN MY OPINION, if HLN had stayed as a reputable news station, these 2 “LADIES” and 1 “GENTLEMAN” would be working for The National Inquirer, or some other similar rag.

NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION

It has become time for the citizens of The United States to continue the rebellion started in 1776.

Part of the reason that we rebelled against England was that we where being taxed and oppressed and we had no say in how the King 0f England ruled us.

Now it is no longer the King Of England but the Democratic and the Republican parties that are doing it. We pay our taxes every year like good little supplicants, but we are no longer getting any representation from the Congress of the United States. They no longer listen to the people or care what the people of this great country need, ask or demand, they only have ears for the obscene profits of the big corporations,  such as the oil companies, the big banks, and the people on Wall St. These are the companies that are paying to keep them in office and padding both the politicians pockets and their own pockets at the same time.

When did WE THE PEOPLE BECOME ME THE CONGRESSMAN???????? They vote themselves pay raises and then raise our taxes to cover it while telling us that they are doing it for our benefit. With their perks and benefits they average well over $200,000 per year and in the last 20 or more years, they have not earned a penny of it.

I am tired of giving 22% or more of my income to a government that no longer cares for it’s people and would rather see them all living in cardboard boxes and fighting for every scrap of food, than to do the job that they where elected for.

It is time that the people of this great nation rose up again and threw of the yoke of servitude, injustice and financial slavery.

THE WHOLE COUNTRY NEEDS TO REFUSE TO PAY ANY MORE FEDERAL INCOME TAX UNTILL THE PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON START DOING WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY AND NOT WHAT THEY FEEL IS BEST FOR THEMSELVES PERSONALLY.

WE NEED TO VOTE OUT EVERY INCUMBENT AND THIEVING POLITICIAN AND REPLACE THEM WITH NEW PEOPLE THAT DO NOT CATER TO BIG BUSINESS, THAT DO NOT BELONG TO THE 2 PARTY SYSTEM AND HAVE NEVER HELD PUBLIC OFFICE BEFORE.

AND WE NEED TERM LIMITS SO THAT THYIS SITUATION WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.
