Technical Difficulties and Popular Technology...


So how many of you believe CNN and their "X"-files story? Does anyone *still* wonder why I have a problem with the media?

(How about that Washington Post journalist? Wonderful set of ethics there.)

Do you think this is enough "sensationalism and hype" and that it will help their ratings?

They certainly don't seem embarassed by the problem and I haven't heard, read, or seen anywhere an apology to Cheney.

Why is that? Could it be because it was on purpose? hmmmm?

CNN blames a technical glitch, but what are the chances of that? We all know that the major media markets have it in for vice-president Cheney.

It's not like CNN is running Windows 98 like I am. Surely they have a few more dollars invested in their equipment than I do.

Wouldn't a leading news company have the latest that technology has to offer in their market?

I always thought that the media didn't think that their subliminal messages were working very well on people like me. They must have had a board meeting and decided to crank the knob up a notch or two.

To other news:

Linda in Norman called this evening. She really surprised me by her stamina and strong will to survive a Wal-mart line for 14 hours yesterday. Of course, she had a very well trained and seasoned support team that is manned by one husband and a teenage son.

"Why were you in line so long?", I asked. (Privately thinking that my self-proclaimed boycott of the store chain was finally beginning to work.)

The debut of the Xbox 360.

Microsoft says that the Xbox 360 is in stores now.

That's a lie.

At least they're not at the Wal-marts in Norman, Oklahoma. Xbox 360 has been sold out; and one of the 24 (at a single store) is at Linda's house!

I'm sure the same scenario has been played out at all the Wal-marts across the country.

I asked Linda about supporting Bill Gates and Microsoft and how she felt about it. She said she doesn't have a problem with it and added, "Bill Gates is the most expensive baby-sitter in the country."

I agree with that.

I had a surprise visitor at work today. One of my foster kids was in town and remembered where I worked. She dropped by and was able to spend a few quick moments with me just to say "hey".

That was really nice. She's grown now and has kids. She didn't have her kids with her today though. I would have liked to have seen them.

Well... It has been a heckuva day.

I hope all of you had a good Tuesday.

I am expecting a good Wednesday. Hope you have one too.

later...

What I really don't get is that everyone believes everything that they put in front of us.

For instance:

They state that the polls are reflecting very bad things for the Republicans, especially George Bush.

Do they ever say anything about what the polls reflect concerning the Democrats? No.

I looked last night for myself and the Democrats are down too. In fact, 58% is the highest approval rating that they have received in a long time. That 58% was in 2001.

Are any of them reporting the falling numbers for the Democrats. Of course not. They wouldn't have to face the real issues that the polls truly reflect if they did.

T.J. ... you're right. But we have to remember that the media is overwhelmingly left wing.

Realizing how many people think Fox News is to the extreme right should make it apparent just how far to the left the media has moved in the last 2 decades or so.

A vocal socialist thrust is slowly changing the face of our cities, but I think that there are still quite a few of us out there who haven't been fooled by the rhetoric.

Don't give up! Don't give in. Keep singing, and eventually your voice will be heard by those who aren't already in the choir, and the music will sound sweet enough to draw them in.

Be peaceful, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
