    When I listen to my favorite hosts- Rush,Sean,Michael et al, on Iheart , every 30 minutes its liberal news updates, nauseating liberal adCouncil propaganda, and Tom Brokaw's commentary. I can't believe any listeners want that crap. And to make matters worse, it's the same commercials over and over. Any stations from other locales that can spare me? Please!

  • What is a Holiday Tree?(Vanity)

    12/01/2014 6:46:11 PM PST · by hecht · 25 replies
    On Black Friday, i drove to my local Home Depot. I needed to get bathroom lights, but because of the hordes of shoppers I ended up parking far from the entrance near the Garden Center. As I entered via that entrance, I noticed a sign stating "Holiday Trees here". Now I am an orthodoxJew and would never get a "Holiday" tree, but I found myself oddly offended. I am not unaware of those who have declared war on Cristmas. Nor am I unaware of atheistic leftists of all backgrounds(Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, muslim etc)that hate all religions and do everything they...

    London Review of Books ^ | Vol. 36 No. 8 · 17 April 2014 | Seymour M. Hersh
    The Red Line and the Rat Line Seymour M. Hersh on Obama, Erdoğan and the Syrian rebels In 2011 Barack Obama led an allied military intervention in Libya without consulting the US Congress. Last August, after the sarin attack on the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, he was ready to launch an allied air strike, this time to punish the Syrian government for allegedly crossing the ‘red line’ he had set in 2012 on the use of chemical weapons.​* Then with less than two days to go before the planned strike, he announced that he would seek congressional approval for the...

    Daily Mail ^ | April 22-23, 2014 | David Martosko, U.s. Political Editor
    The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn't been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. 'The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,' Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the...

  • Millenial's Music Taste (vanity). Whats wrong with your generation?

    Last night we watched ABC's Dick Clarks New Years Eve Show. When they began to show music performers, the first I saw was Billy Joel. You could tell that it was one of his bona fide live performance as he sounded different from the studio versions, some minor errors etc. In my genervation ( I'm in my 50s) the best albums were often live , where the performers would jam, experiment and ad lib. The Allmans Live at Fillmore East is an example , or the Live version of Led Zepellin's "Dazed and Confused" -filmed in San Francisco - where...

  • Shhh: NY Times Reports on Orthodox GOP Vote

    11/26/2012 7:09:02 PM PST · by hecht · 14 replies
    Some news, apparently, is fit to print, but not too boldly. Take, for example, the demure self-censorship on display Saturday in the New York Times’ eye-opening report, headlined “On Island, Largely Blue, an Exception: Trump Tower,” on the handful of New York City neighborhoods that voted for Mitt Romney over President Obama. Overall, the city voted Obama over Romney 81% to 18%. The headline and the first five paragraphs were about the two isolated election precincts on the Upper East Side of Manhattan Island where Romney won half or more of the vote. It wasn’t until paragraph 7 to find...

  • House passes new Buffett Rule

    09/19/2012 4:14:42 PM PDT · by hecht · 15 replies
    The House on Wednesday passed Republicans' own version of the Buffett Rule, which allows wealthy Americans to voluntarily pony up to reduce the deficit. The bill, labeled the Buffett Rule Act, passed by voice vote, meaning Democrats and Republicans agreed with it. Under the legislation, which would still need Senate approval, taxpayers could check a box on their taxes and send in a check for more than they owe to the IRS. "If Warren Buffett and others like him truly feel they're not paying enough in taxes, they can use the Buffett Rule Act to put their money where their...
