Don't listen to right-wing lamebrains
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Thanks to Fox News, Bill O'Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage and the rest of the lamebrain media. President Obama couldn't have won re-election without their help. Racism, bias and hatred which clouded their opinions didn't work.
The cultist followers of the above can turn their talk radio and cable TV stations off, chill out and cheer up. Listen to some music.
The rabble-rousers in the lamebrain media will start right in on the mid-term election. The time to stop the discourse in America is now.
Congress has been put in the position by the people in a Democratic election giving President Obama four more years. His plan was put forth in every debate -- $3 of spending cuts for every $1 in tax raises for $250,000-a-year earners and up.
Gridlock is over. Bipartisanship is a must.
It would be in the senators' and representatives' best interest to do what they were sent to Washington to do. Stay off the morning and evening TV shows and do their jobs.
It should be an insult to one's intelligence to let a talk radio or cable TV jock influence Congress or listeners in any way.
Sorry, we're not Greece as Hannity preaches his doom and gloom version of America or the European Union and will never be.
Why all the power outages now?
Well, here we go again. I have been two days without power and water. I had electricity in the 1950s, '60s, '70s and '80s and wasn't without power. I never cleaned out my refrigerator and freezer and threw out all my food because it was ruined. I never owned a generator, didn't need one. I had power. I never knew anyone who owned a generator or backup heat unless they had a camp up in the mountains.
I know its been said we shouldn't go back into the past. But where the power company is concerned, it may not be a bad idea to review what the power company was doing then to keep our power on. Did we have storms then? Did we have snow then? Sure did. I remember winters when it would start snowing in November and we wouldn't see the ground again until March. But we had power.
Then came the 1990s and the power outages. Had to buy generators and backup heat. Lanterns, candles, batteries, water, replace all the food we lost. Wind-up clocks, coolers and ice to try to keep what food we can. Come on, power company. Get it fixed. Or let's go back to oil lamps and wood burners. At least we would have light and heat.
