Random Thoughts – Year End 2012


As the year 2012 finally draws to a close (perhaps permanently as some doom seers believe), it is not without some angst that I look back at a couple of events that really made this year so darn special.

Obama gets re-elected. What!

This ‘event’ is up there somewhere on two of my lists; ‘Bad things that happened to America’ and ‘Just how dumb are you guys anyway?’

Seeing this idiot savant get re-elected has to be something that keeps people working at places like Gallup staying up late at night. The man has all but wrecked the Republic in ways that Bush never dreamed of and yet he’s gotten himself re-elected for another go at it.

Already, (its still just December for Christ’s sake) and this Universal Divider is doing all he can to guarantee that 2013 will be an economic and regulatory hell on earth! Whether its his progressive tax plans or via the crazed offices of the EPA, life will not be as you’ve known it in the past my friends.

I’ll make a prediction that by fall, our Nation will be in absolute chaos. (A state of affairs that I’m beginning to believe is exactly what this revolting individual wants). First the chaos, then Marshal Law and then He gets crowned as Dictator for Life (or until things ‘settle down’); a situation all too reminiscent of Mubarak’s reign in office that resulted in millions dying while he and his elitist buddies lived the good life. Ah my friends, life IS GOOD when you’re the one on top!

The Media and their hard on for emblems!Image

If you look at most any channel these days, you get these cute little emblems in the corner of your set that remind you of who or what you’re watching. One of my favorites is ABC’s Family Channel; a consortium of neophytes that can’t seem to get enough of themselves.

Have you noticed, for instance, how that little emblem has grown bigger over time. Also, how its slowly creeping towards the center of the screen. I’m sure the day will come when that obnoxious label will be plastered right in the middle so that viewers will have to train themselves to look around it. (And we will too)!

Not to be outdone, the station programmers have slowly but surely increased the time that ads run until now is pretty hard to remember the plot of the program you were watching. (Think I’m wrong? Try changing channels some evening and count the number of times you land on a station where some commercial is running). Wow!

Finally, I just have to throw a rant at the content of the advertising that is being run these days. Certainly the pharmaceutical inserts are becoming a joke. These ads now spend most of the time slot describing all the bad side effects of the crap they are trying to push. Really! Like you think I’m stupid enough to try some of what you’re selling? No, I think I’ll see if my doctor has something a little bit less destructive…

  1. Barack is proficient in mind control…his ideal country is “the world”, his favorite form of murder is using someone under his control to off a bunch of unarmed people, he really likes using people he knows then throwing them under the bus to take the fall for him, nice, sorry Rice. He’s not Hitler, he’s a punk without the balls to recognize it’s not the size of the dog in the fight…
