It's now OFFICIAL! It'll be Obama against Romney and that means they can be nasty toward each other for REAL!!! Speaking of nastiness, the 3-night "Hatfields & McCoys" on the History Channel set new basic cable ratings' records!!! It looks like John Edwards is going to "WALK"!!! Why is Mitt Romney walking with DONALD TRUMP?!? Will Romney ever be interviewed by anyone who isn't on Fox News?!? Will Obama ever be interviewed by anyone who IS on Fox News?!?
Because of the short week, this might be a short blog. Sooooo...LET'S GET BUSY!!!
Headline #1: Mitt Romney is now the OFFICIAL G.O.P. presidential candidate.
I'm trying to think of something nice to write, but because I CAN'T think of anything nice right now, I WON'T say something bad right now.
Just sayin', without sayin'.
Headline #2: This headline will be the first item in our "Entertainment Stuff" section.
Headline #3: It looks like John Edwards is going to "WALK"!
In case you hadn't heard, Edwards was acquitted of one of the 6 bad things he was on trial for. Because the jury said they were deadlocked on the other 5 charges, the judge ruled a mistrial on those 5 charges. Experts seem to think that there won't be a new trial and if that's the case, John Edwards' lifetime of good luck will continue. America got lucky, too. If Edwards hadn't been exposed as the scumbag he is, he might have (someday) become the President of the United States.
Sudden thought: Attention NEW readers!!! In case you didn't know, I have a lot of opinions and I'm not bashful about sharing them!
Headline #4: Why is Mitt Romney "walking" with DONALD TRUMP?!?
You want to be the President of the United States, you're hangin' with "The Donald" and when "The Donald" starts poppin' off about the "Birther" nonsense, you, Mitt Romney, say/said NOTHING?!? Not good strategy, Mr. Romney. But hangin' with The Donald isn't good strategy, either. I mean, if you feel a need to be associated with someone, why don't you hang with someone who has a good political reputation like.....I dunno....How about Condi Rice. She recently announced that she's endorsing you. Hmmm...You're on a stage with Donald Trump because he's endorsing you and using you for his television stuff and idiotic beliefs. Or...You're on a stage with Condi Rice because she's endorsing you, needs nothing from you and it's guaranteed she won't say something stupid.
Just sayin' and tryin' to be helpful. Why? Because Mr. Romney, you desperately need help.
Headline #5: Will Mitt Romney ever be interviewed by anyone who ISN'T on Fox News? And will Barack Obama ever be interviewed by anyone who IS on Fox News?
Just askin'. A fair and balanced question.
One final item before we go to "Entertainment Stuff".
You've probably heard about that doctor in Pakistan who helped us find Osama bin Laden and he's been sentenced by a Pakistan judge to a long prison term for helping us. A man named Jim Lynch wrote a letter to the Los Angeles Times about this subject and I'm going to share it with you.
"There's evidence that Pakistan's intelligence agency provides aid and comfort to the Taliban; the country wants to jack up the price on truck shipments to Afghanistan to $5,000 each and now its courts jailed the doctor who helped find Osama bin Laden.
Why are we giving this country a dime? U.S. aid is certainly not working.
Well said, Jim Lynch. I've said it before and I'll say it again; We keep being told that Pakistan is an "ally" of ours. Long time readers of this blog know that I've done many commentaries on this subject. The only days that countries like Pakistan and other horribly run countries are "allies" of ours are on the days we are giving them money. Lot's of money.
The time to tell these ungrateful 3rd-world countries that the "Golden Goose has been cooked", is NOW! We should have done this yesterday! MANY yesterdays AGO!!! But because those yesterdays have gone, it's time to do it NOW!!!
Gang, our economy is in the toilet. So why are we giving millions on top of millions to ungrateful bastard countries who have absolutely NOTHING IN COMMON WITH US?!? And if given the opportunity, they'd slit our throats.
The message we need to send is the same message that the late and great Dandy Don used say/sing on Monday Night Football when things had reached an "end point." Remember? "Turn out the liiiights! The par-ty's O-VER!"
Please, Congress! Please, President Obama! Take care of America!
Sudden thought: Whadda ya think, gang? Am I a little too "over the top" on this?
Headline #2: "Hatfields & McCoys" on the History Channel set new basic cable ratings' records!
Did you have a chance to watch this 3-part show that starred Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night? I did, but if you didn't, I'm sure they'll show reruns because this show was watched by more than 40-million people. In addition to Costner and Paxton, "Hatfields & McCoys" featured a terrific cast of supporting players and I flat out loved it.
Except for variety shows and "reality" shows, mostly reruns on television right now.
One major exception. Sunday night, the final episode of "Harry's Law" was shown on NBC. My guess is that NBC cancelled it because they thought the show's audience was too old. Too bad because this show had great actors and fun story lines. And they saved the best for last. Their final show sizzled and had an absolutely wonderful ending. R.I.P., "Harry's Law"!
Under the category of "better late than never" and after more than a billion dollars worth of tickets had been sold, I finally saw, "The Avengers". This film is long, noisy, definitely not boring and features an all-star cast of actors. It's not an Oscar-worthy film, but it is most definitely a fun-film.
And speaking of things that are entertaining....I call your attention to a daily column that is written by Jack Roberts. His column is called, "Hollywood Hills", he writes a new column every day, he has been very kind to me and if you would like to have access to his column, send him an email to Radiojack@hollywoodhillsgroup.com
Jack's column is free and I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
