Favorite tv show?

Oh, so hard…

I’m not doing a very good job of watching TV right now, and there’s a bunch I’m trying to get through.  Let’s see, alone and/or with the roomie I’m currently trying to keep up with:  Free!, Adventure Time, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, UFO, Kojak and… and… let’s see… Freaks & Geeks.  

(Freaks & Geeks was the roomie’s idea)

I’m also re-re-re-re-re-watching DS9.

I’d love to continue watching (but I can’t, we don’t have cable):  Supernatural.  I’ve made it through the first 8 seasons.  And then there”s the American version of Being Human.  There’s one last season I believe.  We’re also waiting for the next seasons of Orange Is the New Black & House of Cards.

And I frequently watch Modern Family & Raising Hope with the roomie.

But we’re not TV junkies.  There aren’t very many episodes of “Freaks & Geeks,” for example, and yet we’ve been watching it for months & months and still have a few episodes left. It can take us a long time to burn through a season.

Powerful explosives remove the mountain tops; the process creates thousands of tons of rubble. The dirt, rock, and toxic mining chemicals, referred to as “valley fill” are simply bulldozed into the surrounding valleys, choking streams, and burying plant life all in one fell swoop. ‪#‎MemeGOP‬ ‪#‎UniteBlue‬

Also, we all love fracking, right?  The polluted ground war… the man-made earth quakes, how could anyone NOT love the environmental nightmare that is fracking?  But thanks to all this fracking, the energy companies are producing too much natural gas!
Yup.  We have “Too Much” natural gas.  So Obama signed a law severely restricting the environmental outrage that is fracking…
No. Only kidding.  Instead Obama came up with a plan allowing them to export all this natural gas:
Obama destroys the U.S. environment in order to make the rich richer.

Obama is so “Progressive” that to give him the nomination in 2008 they had to disenfranchise the voters in two states, grant him “Bonus” delegates up the yin-yang (sometimes walking away with more delegates than Hillary in states that Hillary won) and STILL he couldn’t muster 50% +1 delegates at the national convention…
Obama was chosen for us Democrats, not by us Democrats. And one look at his corporatist, Reaganomics domestic policies & NeoCon foreign policies and we can see why…

Progressives were singing a different tune in 2008 and 2012. Now the excuse is either Obama isn’t really a progressive, or that republicans obstructed him. I think that these excuses represent a failure of the pro-government, anti-market left wing to create effective and beneficial policies.

That’s bullshit. That’s you talking, not the progressives. I’m a card carrying liberal Democrat from a liberal-lefty blue state, and you’re ignoring everything I’m saying in favor of the talking points beamed into your head by AM talk radio.

The FOX narrative is built on cynicism. Distrust for all progress. It creates doubt out of thin air. Their journalism is built on “some people say” myths.

And totally legal, they won a law suit that says nothing in the first amendment requires them to tell the truth.

Fox News isn’t cynical or distrustful of progress. It’s distrustful of the progressive ideology, which as we see in the presidency of Obama, is an ideology of failure.

Believe what you will.  But as we have seen, Obama was elected as a progressive and since then has been a total tool of the Beltway.  DO NOT COMPARE PROGRESS WITH THIS PERSON.  Yes we were rooked and we admit it, but the ideology has not been put forth.  Even the health care was a diluted version of Romney’s version. 

If the progressive ideology can’t be implemented by a progressive president, what good is it?

THE CONSERVATIVE MANTRA:
"Hey, everyone, just run out and get six-figure jobs oozing benefits then buy houses, pay for the best of private schools & colleges,get a Galaxy s5 or iPhone 6 and, oh, a Mercedes!"
I wouldn’t say that conservatives are clueless but, man, they are freaking clueless…
