Updated Sunday shows:
Your choice politics or tragedy

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/15/2012 5:57:16 PM

UPDATE: Less choice now. As predicted, the Sunday programs have tossed much of their standard political yada-yada for the gruesome rehashing and navel-gazing that seems to always follow such sad events. Look for non-political news to play an important role in this Sunday morning's TV chatfests. The awful Connecticut school shootings were the week's biggest story by far, and a gut-wrenching one at that. Some of us felt physically ill and unable or unwilling to do normal chores, so much did we identify with the stricken parents of those youngsters and teachers so wantonly slain.

Both are tragic these days.
50% of Americans are unhappy these days.

Not watching; just praying for the families.

Watching David Gregory or George Stephanapolous try to outdo Obama in the crying game?
No thanks.

Yes I am cynical. But the news coverage of this horrible tragedy is, as usual, embarrassing (as an American) and disgusting. Breathless commentary, most of it factually completely wrong in the first few hours, followed by an endless parade of so-called experts explaining how this could have been prevented (though they themselves are doing nothing to make a difference) followed by the ragtag loons they trot out when they have run out of even marginally credible people to interview. My advice to all of them is to shut the hell up, quit worrying for once about your ratings, and just pray for the victim´s families.

It´s worse than that. I have to watch the Bears on Sunday. Sunday morning talk shows featuring stupid sermonettes telling me how I should support gun control and those obstructionist Republicans getting in the way of Obama saving the economy or something, and Sunday afternoon watching the Bears. There´s only so much I can take of this misery.

It gets worse.... I just saw a commercial on CNN that calls the GOP terrorists. It´s made by moveon.org & does a voice over showing a man bound to a chair with duct tape on his mouth.

GOP are terrorists for holding the middle class hostage, while we fight for the rich to get tax cuts.

Sooo... The propaganda has begun. No matter what happens, it´s the GOP´s fault. All the sheeple will remember is the frightened, sweaty man in duct tape.

Time to secede before they lock us all up. 23 states could make a nice little nation.

We are not watching these days. Fox News Sunday was the only one. But Chris Wallace is tough to take. We´ll pass.

Of course this tragedy should be covered. But not 24/7 for days and days on end. How many different ways can you say the same thing over and over? When NEW information becomes available it can be addressed but broadcasting this sad situation every second of every day is, please forgive me for saying this, overkill. I have prayed and I will again but I will not watch anymore. Leave them alone. Another camera or microphone stuck in their face is not going to help.

They´ll be promoting the illusion that government has the answer for tragedies like this. It doesn´t of course. But they´ll be ´´looking for answers´´ blah blah blah.

What amazes me is their enduring faith that government is the answer to everything. Absolutely everything. In my mind the last thing the government got right was preventing another 9/11 from happening in the years following. I really thought at the time it couldn´t be done. Everything else has been a slow motion train wreck. Yet their faith abides.

ABC and NBC Sunday shows are nothing but rah rahing for socialism with a token conservative of the week to harass.

Considering the state of our country, and the loss of all those little ones to a madman, I think Sunday morning would be better spent in church, or at least in prayer.

Hmmm, seems like others are feeling like my family. I am tired of all the talking heads, consultants, and pols. Sundays are for worshipping the One who really does have all the answers. I want to go to Church and pray for these families.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:
The stakes go far beyond cattle
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/15/2014 9:20:54 AM     Post Reply
It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

The impending death of Archie

Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

GOP: Not just equal pay,
equal opportunities
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/12/2014 9:28:08 AM     Post Reply
There was plenty of talk in Washington this week about equal pay. The thing is — it was just that: more talk. As a woman who worked at McDonald’s to get through college…. as the mom of two young daughters … and as the elected representative of thousands of hardworking women, I have always supported equal pay for equal work. And if a woman is being paid less than a man because of gender discrimination, that is both wrong and against the law. The protections provided to women and others in the Equal Pay Act must be enforced to make certain there is no pay disparity because of discrimination.

Obama: The Republican
budget hurts Americans

Hi, everybody. Earlier this week was Equal Pay Day. It marks the extra time the average woman has to work into a new year to earn what a man earned the year before. You see, the average woman who works full-time in America earns less than a man — even when she’s in the same profession and has the same education. That´s wrong. In 2014, it’s an embarrassment. Women deserve equal pay for equal work. This is an economic issue that affects all of us. Women make up about half our workforce. And more and more, they’re our families’ main breadwinners. So it’s good for everyone when women are paid fairly.

Sebelius´ exit gives Obama

It was really just a matter of time until Kathleen Sebelius was looking up at the Obama bus passing over her bureaucratic body. On April Fool´s Day when President Obama attempted his ObamaCare victory lap with unsubstantiated enrollment numbers and failed to mention Sebelius even once, her fate was sealed.Obama is not known as Mr. Gratitude by anyone. But staring right at Sebelius in the front row of the Rose Garden and praising only Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin, of all people, for the trumped-up success of ObamaCare and not even mentioning his Health and Human Services secretary after five years of tough, loyal duty was

President Obama and wife Michelle are back on the road again, this time in Texas to harvest more Democrat dollars for the looming November midterm election. The previously-scheduled fundraising foray was tacked onto Obama´s memorial speech Wednesday at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. Why let a nationally-televised shooting memorial go to waste when you can use such an official activity to cut the Democratic Party´s cost of political transportation on Air Force One for two fundraisers in Houston and another one today in Austin?

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
