Gubmint Money

February 15, 2011

I’m thinking about starting a business. The gubmint gives out money for that sort of thing don’t they? I was thinking of starting a junkyard. It seems like everything turns into junk sooner or later so that would probably be a going concern. I wonder what you have to do to get a subsidy? I think this would be advantageous to the public and I think that’s the only prerequisite to get a subsidy.

It would certainly be much more advantageous than Amtrak. And they have been getting subsidized since day one and, they have never made a nickel. I am pretty sure I could do better than that.

The Public Broadcasting System (PBS) is another one that eats up subsidies and spits out crap. I think the only thing they can point to that doesn’t offend someone is Sesame Street and I have never seen it so I don’t know, I just have not heard anything negative about it.

How about we revisit National Public Radio (NPR)? Now there’s a real crapper. I have tried to listen to it but I could never stomach anything for more than a few days. It’s like they have the Midas touch only with feces. Everything they touch turns to crap. And I think they work almost entirely on subsidies.

So now let me ask you, does General Motors (GM) work on subsidies now? I don’t know. I heard they were getting money. Then I heard they were paying it back. Now I’m hearing that they paid it back with more borrowed money. I give up. Who really knows?

Another good one is Chrysler. I remember when they got the original bailout. Lee Iacocca was in charge of that. Everybody said he was a real good con-man. I have always thought that they should have gone out of business. That was either right before or right after American Motors (AMC) went out of business. Nobody came running out to them with a bailout. At the time I think they had better models than Chrysler. I know I own a Chrysler and it has never been in a wind tunnel. That thing makes the craziest noises going down the road.

I guess what I’m getting at here is that I think that if it needs a subsidy it should not exist. Amtrak? No. PBS? No. NPR? No. I think we could do just fine without them. GM, too big to fail? Can we get by without them? I think so. Chrysler? Let them fail. How can I say this? I believe the car companies are, and have been, too big for too long. I think smaller, more localized companies should be doing the job. Oh well. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Is NPR Racist

October 21, 2010

Apparently National Public Radio (NPR) is racist. It appears that they fired reporter Juan Williams last night because he’s black. No other reason can be found for Williams dismissal. Had it been FOX News you know darn well that’s how the headlines would have read. Now here is a truly liberal conundrum, how delightful. I just wish there were something I could say or do to make it worse, and you can bet I will try, now here’s the layout. A liberal institution from hades (NPR) has a black reporter with a hispanic name (Juan Williams) who has dared to speak evil of the beloved mooslims. I am rolling on the ground with laughter holding my aching stomach just thinking about this.

Well apparently NPR has started damage control already by claiming that Mr. Williams is “mentally challenged”. If you want mentally challenged let’s look at Garrison Keillor, but I digress. A spokesman for NPR (I know it was a woman but sometimes I can’t help myself.) said that they received 378 e-mails expressing frustrations and complaints about Mr. Williams in 2008. I’m guessing that was either one dude mailing over and over every day and twice on holidays or every single one of NPR’s listeners sending an e-mail. Either way who cares? I have more complaints than that. If you would like to see a lib-friendly article about this check here.

OK. So I was walking down the street and these two black guys dressed like gang members started following me and I got a little nervous. Is that a racist statement? To paraphrase, Mr. Williams said he gets a little nervous when he gets on a plane with people in mooslim garb. Now come on, what’s the foul here? What’s the termination offence? You know though who really cares. Apparently Mr. Williams has a gig over at FOX and if he continues to speak the truth he may actually have a future in broadcasting. I wonder if he realizes that this could be his finest hour? I guess not he has already gone on and spewed some feces about how the tea party is racist in a vain attempt to garner favor with his old cronies at NPR. You can see that at the end of the article here.

Now the latest definition (as it seems to change weekly if not daily) is that you must have some sort of power to be a racist (WTF?). Now my Merriam-Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, copyright 1977, defines racism as a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

I suggest we put a stop to this right now and move ahead secure in the knowledge that we are different. Every one of us, for one reason or another. And we all bring something to the table. These “race pedlers” out here, the Jackson’s and the Sharpton’s are doing no one any favors. As near as I can figure they have done as much to keep people under the shadow of racism as any kkk or arien nation. As Rodney said, “Can’t we all just get along?” Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Diversity

August 18, 2009

Chief Diversity Officer of the Federal Communications Commission? What is that? What, precisely is his function? Apparently Mark Lloyd the CDO of the FCC has proposed insanely high fees on private broadcasting companies so that the trash known as pubic, I mean public radio will be equally funded. Again I say, I’m sick of paying for public radio. It sucks. That’s why it can’t make it on it’s own, just like the railroad.

So, what say we hop off the sofa and call and e-mail our “do nothing until the heat is turned up” representatives until they do our bidding. CDO Lloyd is calling for “diverse views” in broadcasting. I’m not sure what is meant here as I didn’t hear it first hand. Is he wanting all radio stations to come under his control and broadcast these “diverse views” or just the public crap that only two people listen to. I listened to public radio once. They had a blues special on a Saturday afternoon and between the blues (which even I had never heard, read that obscure, B side crap) and them begging for donations for fifteen minutes between songs I was ready to suck on a .45.

Thankfully, I think he’s just talking about the public crap because he goes on to say they should cover all local, state and federal government meetings. Man, that ought to draw them in, huh? (Read this next part in the voice of that guy who does the movie trailers) In a world where exciting thoughts and and ideas are voiced everyday. One man dares to be different. Mark Lloyd, CDO. In the new snooze fest, “NPR, Public Meetings”. Coming to a public school classroom near you.

Should you choose not to accept this mission you will probably be listening to local public budget reports for many moons.

Alphabets

July 23, 2009

On May 28,2009 I posted regarding NPR and PBS and how I’m sick of supporting this liberal biased media with my tax dollars. Well, since that time we have had the spectacle that is the Obama fireside chat, or whatever they called it on ABC. I don’t know how long it droned on for because, as I stated earlier, if I listen to him for more than thirty seconds I get seriously ill, but I didn’t hear of any conservative rebuttal for however long Zero spewed.

I’m considering a new approach for this onslaught of liberalism provided by the alphabet networks. Normally when I view any of the, ahem, “fine programming” (wink wink nod nod) from them I hit the mute button during the ads but in these cases I believe I will mute the programming altogether and read a book (Common Sense maybe). Then, during the ads I will write down the sponsors and send them an e-mail threatening to never purchase their product or service again as long as I live(right wing terrorist that I am).

The “hope” here is that they will “change” their wicked ways and return to some vague façade of balanced reporting of the days events. If you too long for something to view besides the constant stream of homosexual abortions produced by ABC, CBS and NBC, join me in my quest for decency in broadcasting.

NPR and PBS

May 28, 2009

I’m sick of supporting National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS). What? You thought that was really made possible by donations from people like you? Have you ever donated? How much? Do you have any idea how much it costs to produce a documentary? Do you know how much it costs to run even a crummy TV or radio station? Yeah, far more than that free tote bag fifty dollar level. Even if you told two friends and they told two friends and so on, only three of you are going to donate.

I’ve never donated to PBS and I have only donated to NPR once. However, in my defense, I never listen or watch, especially since they went on the global warming fairy tale trail. Liberal as the day is long. They have a slogan that says, “If we don’t do it, who will?” I’d like to answer that. Nobody. Because it’s not worth doing. If it was worth doing, anybody would be able to do it in the commercial market, because it would sell advertising and it would support itself.

That’s right. Once again, your tax dollars to the rescue. Anymore it seems like every liberal garbage project that isn’t worth the media it’s imprinted on becomes a ward of the U.S. taxpayer. Gee, could this possibly be what Thomas Jefferson was talking about when he said, “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
