Everybody Wants to Rule the World


I know, it's a song. It's also true. 


The Russians have been scrupulous in their control over nuclear weapons, even when the Soviet Union fell.

Iran, like North Korea, promises to use them to wipe out their neighbors and everyone else who pisses them off. While I can appreciate that general sentiment, it's problematic. The US can turn Iran, the Norks and pretty much everywhere else into a sea of radioactive glass with the push of a button. We don't have to get close. We can do it with submarine launched ballistic missiles or land based weapons. So can the Russians. Which is why I'm so confused .

The threats to peace and stability come from Iran and North Korea. But the corrupt, wicked, elite, smug, lying, nasty, foolish mainstream media only have one story. Only one. (well, two if you count "IMPEACH TRUMP") They have only one concern for the US and the rest of the world and that's Russia. Dear readers, we have a lot more in common with the Russians than we do with Iran or North Korea. 

I haven't been watching TV at all. During the move I didn't have TV or Internet, which was a good thing. I didn't miss it. But eventually I relented and when the cable guy was plugging things in. He flipped it to Channel 2 and the first thing I saw was CBS News ranting about the Trump-Russia connection. I thought they would have moved on in the intervening week or so. Yeah, right.

So I turned the TV off.

  1. My TV has been off more than it has been on. I don't even listen to talk radio as much, anymore. I do like the SIRIUS comedy channels though. And my blood pressure seems to be much better now.

    1. Yes, the jackwagons do have a way of effectively increasing your blood pressure.

  2. The media had one theme, electing Shillary (an amoral, corrupt, wretched excuse of a human). Didn't work. Now it is bring Trump down using Russia.

    What is that definition of insanity?

    1. Maybe they need to get back to championing Hillary?

  3. They are trying their damnest to destroy America, since 'they' didn't get their way in the election...

    1. The Deep State, an enemy to the Constitution, didn't get its way and the only way to fix that is to remove President Trump.

      They wanted Jeb!, a useful dupe.

  4. My guess is the Trump-Russia thing will be news until the next election.
    And the Republicans are doing their best to give the interim election to the liberals.

    I wish hubby would leave the news off. The only news I want to see is local. And even they had to talk about O.J.
    And I don't mean orange juice.

    Be safe and God bless.

  5. I haven't had a TV signal coming in to my home for the last dozen years or so. So many people are aghast when I tell them that, and ask me how I can get along without TV. My response is: same way I get along without an open sewer running through my living room.

    1. I can't argue with that.

      There are some shows that I enjoy. I watched Fox Business, "War Stories with Oliver North" last night. I realize that's not must-see-tv to most people, but it worked for me.

    2. I enjoy the history channels, sometimes Modern Marvels, stuff like that. Recently one of them had a decent piece on the battle at Gettysburg. The rest of the selection you can pretty much light a match to. On that note, here is a read you might enjoy, unless you were there and can't tell us, in which case everyone else, enjoy.

    3. I had not heard of that particular incident, but I know of many others as the old Soviet empire began to unravel. To this day many people I know can arrange personal meetings with Pres. Putin. There is pay-to-play involved, but it's do-able.

      Russia reverted to the days of the czars where pay-to-play was the name of the game. It was heavily that way during the Obama Years - and was clearly the case with Hillary and Bill, who people I know paid to make things happen.

      You're on point that when these guys openly decided to make money, the game was afoot and the collapse of the old empire was certain. The question then was who could take charge. Yeltsin was a clown. I have many stories of those days that I can't share. It turns out that Putin had the stroke to keep the ducks (and the nukes) in a row and secure.

      I don't dislike Putin and I don't suspect his motives. He's a Russian. He will behave like a Russian oligarch, so he's predictable. The US is unpredictable these days. The election of President Trump rocked the world back on its heels. And the incessant media attacks on him as the Deep State corruption (that everyone outside of the US knew was the norm) tries to tear him down are must-see-tv for them.

  6. I'm with Anita, albeit at 9 years. We'd stop their garbage sharpish if everyone turned off the agitprop box...

    Good luck with the move!

    1. I recorded HBO - "Hacksaw Ridge" last night. I plan to watch it tonight. There are shows that I watch that appeal.

    2. It's not all bad. Stay tuned for the awesome "Cooking With LSP" show.

    3. These shows are very instructive. Soon there will be a "Cooking with LL" youtube as I demonstrate for you all how to pickle carrots (Mexican pickled carrots). I love to eat them as snacks.

  7. Now I wish I had known that "War Stories with Oliver North" was on. That I would have watched.

    2. Are they producing new ones? I think I've all of Lt Col North's TV shows.

    3. They're the old ones, but I haven't seen most of them.
