Let’s start this week with a thanks for all those who have been praying for DaWife, the recovery from Surgery has been on track but the contagious infection that she picked up shows no sign of improving. We see the nurse practitioner on Monday and possibly an infectious disease specialist if things don’t change, I’m hoping to be back to work sometime late this week.
I’m really reaching the point were it’s just not worth watching the media anymore, it’s all anti-trump Democrat liberal spin all the time and I see no reason to waste my time on earth listening to people lie to me. I suppose it’s cathartic to those who are still all the time but it’s reached the point where I presume dishonesty from them before they even open their mouths. One might think that’s harsh but having seen how these folk operate up close and having written about it for nearly a decade to do otherwise would be an exercise in self delusion.
One of the things I noticed in his war against the media is that as soon as he stopped Tweeting the left and the media went on the offensive, I think President Trump needs to keep tweeting fast and furiously to steal a phrase. Make the left spend every single day reacting rather than acting. It’s the only way to keep them off balance.
A great example of this is the MSM Trump/Trump tower being bugged story. When Heat Street wrote about it in November, the US media yawned. When the Guardian wrote about it in January the MSM took no notice. But now that President Trump himself has tweeted about it, and it can not be hidden from the general public or ignored suddenly the MSM which wasn’t disputing the stories coming out since November are suddenly in full denial mode calling the whole thing a conspiracy theory even though the Obama Whitehouse had a history of bugging people.
Incidentally while I thought Jeff Sessions decision to recuse himself from any Russian investigation was honorable I think it was a mistake. When dealing with the left you can’t give an inch because they can never be satisfied. The only power they have at the moment is the power you give them so I give them nothing and make them like it.
I know some might disagree but those who do are presuming we have shared cultural values, while that might have been true a generation ago I think it no longer is. That fact is a crying shame but it would be a bigger shame to deny reality.
Just saw on Instapundit that Iowahawk has quit Twitter (although not necessarily the net). It’s a shame as he is one of the funniest people on the net but it shows that he has a lot of sense as well.
For those suffering Iowahawk withdrawal here is my interview with him from 2010
I see Disney has decided to finally cave to gay activist on both the Beauty and the Beast movie and other shows. This might make short term sense but given that it is the religious population worldwide that is having children in the long term it’s going to do damage to do permanent damage to the brand, particularly in a world that offers so many alternatives.
The clueless folks in Major League Baseball have decided to make intentional walks automatic. Not only does it eliminate some of the rare but occasionally interesting events during an IBB such as the immaculate deception of Johnny Bench.
but ironically I think this will slow the game down in some situations as a reliever to be pulled is often given the task of issuing a free pass to give his replacement time to warm. Now managers will have to use other methods to stall.
However baseball being the greatest game ever invented has survived plenty of stupidity, it will survive this.
Word is the five primary stars of the big bang theory have agreed to a pay cut from 1 mil an episode (24 mil a year) to $900,000 per episode ($21,600,000 a year)to allow a pay raise for Mayim Bialik (Amy Farah Fowler) and Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) to get them from $200,000 per episode ($4.8 mil a year) to $450,000 per episode (10.8 Mill a year).
Given that it’s highly unlikely that any of these actors are going to pull anything near this kind of money once the show ends the smartest thing they can do is keep going with the flow for as many seasons as possible and keep the green coming.
While all these folks (except Kaley Cuoco play genius’ on the show I wonder how many of them have been smart enough to put some of these millions away to live on for when they are in the wilderness again?
Finally I’m still weeks away from posting all of the videos I’ve taken at CPAC on the blog and frankly still haven’t gotten them all published on youtube either.
I know these interviews don’t draw a lot of view but I think they are vital to learn exactly what people think and for me to have clearer idea of the view of the voter and the activist.
Perhaps the day will come when these short videos will be more appreciated in terms of their journalistic value, perhaps not but either way I offer them as a snapshot of the opinion of the public, it’s up to you to decide if it’s more important than the five stars that went too far.
