Is It in My Head?

Apr 12

“Why, exactly, is all of late night still geared only to satisfy the tastes of my Uncle Jack?

Clearly, someone out there thinks that it’s just too risky to put a woman behind that desk, that we’re not ready yet. I’m not sure who that someone is, because I think the audience is there, so it must be someone powerful – an old-school executive, a nervous sponsor, a lazy senior makeup artist. Or maybe that someone just doesn’t want to pay to remodel the host’s bathroom.

But the more I think about it, the more I realize CBS is taking a big risk with Stephen Colbert. I know what my Uncle Jack will say when he hears the news: he’ll say, “Who?” And it will be tough for me to explain. The only reassuring thing I could tell him is, “He looks like someone you’re going to like. It’ll seem familiar.”” —

Here is the kicker: the only one cited article mentions Chelsea Handler.

“The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said.

The NSA’s decision to keep the bug secret in pursuit of national security interests threatens to renew the rancorous debate over the role of the government’s top computer experts.” — NSA Said to Have Used Heartbleed Bug, Exposing Consumers - Bloomberg

Hillary Clinton has many legitimate faults as a candidate, but this kind of Crazy Eyes ☭linton picture is something fit for a Fox Noise also-ran website…maybe a Breitbart, Drudge or a World Noise Now; but not La Opinión, that’s for sure.

John Paul De Joria is a nice guy as capitalists go, but there are all kinds of other tequilas outside of Patrón that are as good.
That’s why I stopped reading this issue at this page.

Breaking: CBS announces Stephen Colbert host of The Late Show after David Letterman. -

…because Chelsea Handler’s insert reference to a piece of anatomy here wasn’t big enough to host a late night TV show on a broadcast network….

Congress: Stop Comcast's mega-merger! -

If you’re sick and tired of skyrocketing cable TV and Internet rates, and lousy customer service, then take a minute and join me in opposing Comcast’s takeover of Time Warner Cable.

If this mega-merger is allowed to go through, Comcast will dominate much of the nation’s TV and Internet marketplace, and be in 19 of the 20 largest cities. When one company has that much control, you can bet we’ll get hit with even higher prices and fewer program choices!

The Senate is holding its first hearing on this bad deal Wednesday. I just sent a message of opposition to my members of Congress you can do the same by going to Consumers Union’s website. It only takes a minute, and it’s important our elected officials know that we are fed up with giant conglomerates draining our wallets.

“The images, including a Photoshopped depiction of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) on all fours in a bikini with her tongue hanging out, prompted House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) to ask that his column be taken off the website.

“We didn’t condone them,” said Matt Sparks, a spokesman for McCarthy, referring to the website’s pictures. “We thought it was the right thing to do to ask for the column to be removed.”

Another image on the website, called Breitbart California, superimposed Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg’s face on a topless female body. The picture’s tag line says the website will be “covering Cali-sized IQs & cup sizes.” Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown was shown with a body builder’s muscle-bound physique.” — Isn’t that nice that one powerful Republican official is learning what limits are and restraint is?

Facebook does one thing good: it fosters a relationship with my cousins. But there are other things it does a shockingly poor with. This screen shot of my cellphone shows that collecting data on my ideological leanings is something that Facebook stumbles in.
