Ruh-Roh, Missy's Out of Sorts

Look at the ear language

Stupid Ad Tricks

How Serendipitous!

Just 10 minutes ago I wondered how I'd  reach the stray sock on my desk.

Actually, we have one of these and it's really great for removing overhead bulbs, and such.

Prolly photochopped, but not by me

Tina Fey, Blabbermouth

Tina Fey's Slide
And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women – except, of course –those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff. But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years – whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know – actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster. [Tina Fey monologue cut by PBS]

Tina Fey's Slide

The Post asks, "Was PBS shielding its viewers from Fey's more pointed remarks? And then asks, Was PBS right to edit Tina Fey's remarks on Sarah Palin?

Protecting their own collective asses
As to the former, If you've watched any PBS lately, you've noticed the hysterical (not funny hysterical, hysterical) pleas that go  -

"Some members of Congress are trying to cut funding for all public television, like Sesame Street blah-blah please contact your representative or these shows will all disappear and who will baby-sit your children, -blah"

So yes, PBS is aware that it's the very people - newly elected and subscribing to Palin's TeaParty instincts -  who will be, hopefully, yanking them off the public teat. 

Viewers like you?
As to the second question, was PBS right to edit?  Well,  who watches PBS anyway?   I don't have to add this, but will anyway.  No PBS program will go off the air if there's an audience for it.

Influenced Behavior?

... only the Big 4 Banks will be
doing mortgage loans period
This will be the final nail in the coffin of the US Mortgage and Housing Industry.  The Fed has set it up whereby only the Big 4 Banks will be doing mortgage loans period. 

They have run all the independent brokers out of business and have increased the cost of mortgage loans in every aspect (appraisals have almost doubled in cost in the last three years).  The sad part of this is it was FANNIE and FREDDIE as well as the banks [and Dems in Congress, and Bill Clinton] that caused the crash to begin with and this Administration is rewarding the banks for that effort while driving millions of small business owners and their support personnel out of business.  This was the only on-shore home grown US industry and you will have seen it's destruction in the last three years.  Please view the video below.

The video is a bit histrionic, but then this is their livelihood.

FCC, what would we do without you?

A Grateful Nation Sighs in Relief
"The things we bring in and the services we
provide are important in this time of struggle."

  "President Obama's fiscal 2012 budget proposal includes $354.2 million for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), up from $335.8 million in 2010, the last time Congress approved the agency's spending levels," reports The Hill.

"The reasons for the increase, according to FCC Managing Director Steve VanRoeckel: about 75 new staffers, funding for an emergency response center created in 2010 and a request to replace four or five of the FCC's Hybrid Chevy Tahoes each year, which the FCC uses for field work."

Please Sir
When asked how he would explain the increased budget to Congress, VanRoeckel claimed that the FCC pays for itself by fining TV and radio stations that fail to abide by the FCC's draconian decency standards and renting out chunks of spectrum to corporations that have spent the most money lobbying the FCC. VanRoeckel added -

"The things we bring in and the services we provide are important in this time of struggle."  [The Hill]

Daley Gun Bans

They NEVER stop

Feeling Safe on Chicago's Beaches
Mayor Richard Daley today launched his final push in office for state and federal gun-control measures and vowed to continue those efforts "as a private citizen as well."

He proposed four new state criminal laws aimed at reducing gun violence and vowed to battle bills that would bar cities and villages from enacting gun-control measures and allow citizens to carry concealed weapons.

"We are ready for this fight," Daley said, after noting his long history of anti-gun violence efforts during nearly 22 years in office. [Chicago Breaking News]
