Early Morning Thread 2/8/15: Crossroads edition. [krakatoa]

Heading to Nashville today. Granted, I'm not literally selling my soul for a shot at gaining the everlasting adoration of a compliant America.

I'd settle for anchoring the NBC nightly news. I believe I have the qualifications down: I can read. I've stayed in a ritzy hotel in the French Quarter. And I've never had an RPG fired at me in anger.

1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Sunday, February 08, 2015. On this day in 1993 General Motors sued NBC after Dateline NBC rigged two crashes intended to demonstrate that some GM pickups can easily catch fire if hit in certain places. NBC settled the lawsuit the next day. So this series of lies by NBC reporter/talking head Brian Williams is nothing new for them. I suspect that all of them are guilty of the same kind of shit.

2 And speaking of lying Williams, NBC says it has no intention of investigating him (or doing anything).

If I had a shitton of money, I would petition the FCC to revoke NBC's broadcast license.

Then again NBC is a network and not an individual station. Do networks even have licenses? Or maybe move to strip their O and O's of their license and demand affiliates drop the network.

So BJ has killed someone. Now we'll have to hear all about how it has affected him, er her, er it. I hope they sue em to oblivion.

Speaking of truck drivers I usually prefer driving my truck because it's safer. People get out of the way and if by chance someone hits me it gonna hurt them more. They will likely end up underneath it rather than on it.

And Escalade drivers are the worst. Especially the ones that have the "Educator" tags on them.

I think Choom Boy announced another "summit on terrorism" back when people were beginning to voice mild criticism of his regime for not sending anyone to the Charlie Hebdo rally in Paris. That one was supposed to bring a bunch of World Leaders together to issues a Strongly Worded Statement against nasty types like ISIS/ISIL.

82 One thing the Founders never foresaw.

They foresaw a President that would try to seize power.

They did foresee that the respective Houses could be controlled by feckless ideologues in thrall to moneyed interests.

What they didn't foresee was that both would happen at once and that neither would have enough care for the country to stop the other from abusing their position.

Perfect storm.

Narcissistic Manchurian Candidate and a feckless group of Representatives who's only interest is continuing the gravy train for as long as possible before it all goes to hell.

Top that off with a treasonous press and a somnolent and/or slothful electorate and bingo we have the demise of the American Republic.

His actions (or actually lack of action) on the illegal border assault aided and abetted by the Federal Government.

He could have stopped the majority of it.

He didn't have the courage but mostly it wasn't a problem for him. He's all for giving illegals citizen status.

Once he saw they were being shuttled out of Texas, he shut up and withdrew objections.

89 Sunrise has finally begun. Looking East, up the hill, traces of fog weave among the pines on the horizon, beneath a turquoise sky braided with clumps of pink and purple cloud. A crisp 35° but going up to twice that many ° today.

A day to look forward to. A day to which to look forward. Aw, futz. Sometimes a participle ought to be dangled.

On the other Brian Williams.

With the passing of the former, the mere thought of the latter sickens me.

96 Let me stick my neck out, with this bold prediction...

Brian Williams is pretty much toast.

He'll get eased out, with as little commotion as possible.

And then, there will be a new face appearing right before your eyes telling you: "Hey.. Look over there."

And, Brian Williams will become a distant memory.

And, you'll forget, everyone at NBC was in on the game.

Cartoon by Randy Bish: B Williams haunted by Walter Cronkite - "Ghost of Integrity Past."

I might have thought so, too, once, before I knew the real Cronkite. But, no. Pairing Walter with Williams is like his being congratulated on his honesty by Dan Rather.

Walt was a more clever liar, though. Ghost of propagandistic manipulation past.

You left out one thing: the universal franchise. The Founders were dead set against it, and knew it would lead to disaster.

Wrong.

Williams will be back after his little "vacation," bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, toiling hard to Earn the Trust of America.

Don't confuse him with someone who is actually held accountable for lies less egregious than "terrorists shot my chopper."

In a land where Impeachment is Off the Table and terrorists are invited to the White House by a lying, treasonous so-called "President," no one who faithfully spouts the Party Line need fear consequences for "mis-speaking."

(Drudge)

I'm kind-of torn on this.

On the one hand, it's a sad sign of the degradation of our culture.

On the other hand, no-whip zones are just open invitations to assault by criminal whippers. Everyone should support the right to keep and bear open or concealed whips. Because militia.

You'd think the gun controllers would be all in favor of open carry of whips. They make great defensive weapons. You can whip a gun right out of a bad guy's hands. I saw it in the movies.

116 Gang violence affects all of us, though some of us have been more directly impacted than others (pro tip: stay away from the Quarter in storms). Its for that reason that we would like to advocate the forcible seizure of all weapons from those who in their individual capacity have mistakenly decided they might need a weapon for self-defense. All of the poor, like people who make less than $1 million per year, all minorities (because government will protect them) and all people who disagree with us politically.
