If we only had the lamestream media to listen to as we once did, most of my 65 years, we would be very depressed about the state of our country. We would probably think there were no people left that thought conservative. We could not find others that had common sense. We might think we were living in Albania! But America over the years got fed up being fed liberal media tripe and created alternatives. Rush Limbaugh started it in 1988. Conservative talk, TV and now the Internet gives us all a alternative to the alphabet networks and PBS liberal BS.
When I was a local political person, conservative and Republican, I had to start issuing press releases to make sure the press could not screw the words up. Well they still did. I recall when I debated a gal from SYRCL back in my CABPRO days. A teacher from Silver Springs invited us to discuss Wild and Scenic and other issues. The debate went well. I kicked the SYRCL person's ass and the students actually surrounded me and had further discussions because their teacher had never given them anything but the SYRCL pablum. It was great! There was no press at the debate in the classroom. The next day there was a Union article by a female reporter who said I was verbally rough on the kids and they were this or that. It was a crummy artical. Anyway since there was no reporter there I thought where did this come from?
So I went into the Union and asked John Seelmeyer, the editor how this article claiming to have been written by someone at the debate came to be. He said, "oh, the teacher did a report". So the teacher sent them his lying version and a reporter at the Union wrote the story as if she was there. I got into a shouting match with Seelmeyer and totally lost all respect for the jerk. Of course when these lies get into print or TV, the opposition then uses them to trash a person. It seems the left of America has gotten real good at that. Many people of great quality do not run for election in America because they cannot and will not stand for these lies. And if you try to get adjudication there is really no way to get it.
My point in this little history is I never got run out of my town by these liberal liars. They tried and tried but here I am. There is a local liberal blog that keeps using a discredited SYRCL flyer used against me and John McCalister from the mid 90's regarding our position on Wild and Scenic. John was a landowner on the South Yuba and was tryng to warn others of the impacts to private property and the river itself if Wild and Scenic was passed. He and I held it off for years but the liars finally got a out of town State Senator from the Bay Area to sponsor the bill. We know see how the river turned out just as John and I warned.
The left and their media lackey's do their best to tell us all "how it is" and we should not believe our lying eyes on many issues. Yesterday was the latest set of votes to prove the lamestreams are actually the ones out of touch and who have a liberal agenda. The country is still center right but the lamestream think the opposite. Of course the left has the two coast's states but the rest of the country is still fairly conservative and appreciates the American culture. LGBT "equal rights" in Houston, Texas was defeated 61-39. If you only listened to the lamestream media you would have thought it would be the opposite. A .001 percentage of humans wanting to change their sex organs is not a majority. But with a goofy media and a goofy US Supreme Court, you would think the country is a majority of these folks.
In Kentucky, a Tea Party member was elected Governor in a state that had not elected a Republican in 40 years. The media and their push-polls said the democrat was going to win. Oops! And you would have thought the Tea Party was dead based on the amount of space it gets in the national media. NOPE! They are alive and well. 2010, 2014 and 1500 new conservatives at all levels of election in America show the lamestreams need to re-think their business model. At least FOX News and Rush etal figured out how to tap into the huge majority. The left's business model can sell all their goods and services to the 001% they seem to claim is a majority. And they will all go bankrupt.
Marijuana was voted down in Ohio. AirBnB was voted in in San Francisco. The people appear to have some understanding of their property rights even in San Francisco! There were numerous recalls of liberal scofflaws all across America. Many local and statewide laws and ordinances were defeated that wanted to further restrict people's common sense. Maybe yesterday was a harbinger of better things to come. Maybe this PC BS is finally getting the people worked up enough to toss out the scofflaws. When I see debates on TV that the ACLU wants a LGBT teen in school to be able to shower with the the girls while he/she is still dangling, I have to believe the common sense of people will prevail. Maybe even in California?
Even here locally in our little county, common sense may be returning. I like to think I have a lot of common sense.
