Holiday weekend turned out better
than I expected.  Except for a few clouds & lite showers,
that hurricane passed by New Jersey.
Then, sunny and warm, very pleasant the rest of the way.


I think that’s it for an opener…

too nice a day to waste time on it !

Best known from the 1960s sitcom “McHale’s Navy.”

Hastings won fans on “McHale’s Navy” as Lt. Elroy ‘Carpey’ Carpenter,

“All in the Family” and “General Hospital.”

The Brooklyn, New York-born Hastings began his caree
r at age 11 on radio dramas. He branched out into TV in its infancy,
snagging a role on “Captain Video and His Video Rangers” in 1949.



Other early acting jobs included a recurring role
on the military comedy “The Phil Silvers Show.”

Later TV appearances included “Ironside,” ”The Dukes of Hazzard,”

I’m hoping the ‘tipping point’ is near…

This bullshit country we’ve turned into is too much !

OOH… YOU HURT MY FEELINGS !!!

You deserve to be ostracized from society
and lose your ‘job’… even after a necessary,
but useless apology… they aren’t accepted !

Now… its getting worse…
‘They’ can accuse you for what they
think you said, or meant… with the ‘lie’ taking on a life of its own !

Case in point…

Anthony Cumia of Opie & Anthony fame…
(edgy satellite radio show, not for everyone, neither is THE VIEW)
He’s walked-the-line forever… he’s a professional…
the only mean-spiritedness on the show
is towards low-lifes-and-criminals !
And if you take what he’s said, line-by-line,
and who he’s friends with, you can’t say
anything evil about him.  He’s a ‘regular’ guy.

He gets assaulted in Times Square
(late nite, taking ‘city photos’, ones you’ve seen before)
A female ‘animal’ takes exception to being in a shot…
So what do you do ?
Call the photographer a
‘white cocksucker’
and start punching him !!!
He backs off
(won’t hit a woman, she’s not really hurting him),
a legal gun owner with a carry permit,
he leaves his weapon holstered and unseen
(law says only if in fear for life can you brandish or shoot),
and gets leaves, returning her ‘garbage mouth’ with
garbage directed at her
(non-racial).

Angry about what happened, and nursing an eye injury,
Anthony goes on TWITTER, and relates the story,
blowing off steam…  The TWEETS were deservedly profane,
but, except for identifying her as black…
was never racist… racial perhaps.. but not racist !
(I followed every tweet, better than tv)

SO, HIM BEING THE VICTIM
SIRIUS-XM FIRES HIM IN AN EMAIL !!!
NOT EVEN A KISS ON THE LIPS

(nothing he did was racist, or illegal, and not on-air)

——

Didn’t the company ever listen to the show  for the past 10 years ?
There was nothing ‘new’ on TWITTER !

NOT LIKE THE RACIST LANGUAGE USED
ON OTHER STATIONS
(chez 45 for one)

Personally, I’m not happy with the firing,
but he and Opie weren’t appreciated there anyway…
Stern sues them repeatedly & they still kiss his ass !
(hoo hoo)
I TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO CANCEL
MY SATELLITE RADIO SERVICE

(and I’m not alone… I’ve gotten twitter activity like never before)

The product was going-to-hell anyway…
the ‘powers’ may know finance,
but they have no idea how to provide entertainment.
And I’m not talking one-show…
even the music channels, with short playlists SUCK !

Me?  I paid my money for ONE channel,
and without that (intact)
I HAVE NO NEED FOR THE PRODUCT !
(got a refund for my yearly fee too)

addendum…

Anthony does a program from a home studio…
(really professional, green screens and all)
called

LIVE FROM THE COMPOUND
(on Ustream… so far, its free)

The move had to happen sooner, or later,
but I expect the ENTIRE show to return,
bigger and better, in the near future !
(I’m hoping for more ‘desertions’ to join Ant
and put another nail-in-the-sirius-coffin)

THIS STUPID ACTION BY THE COMPANY
COST THEM ALOT OF SUBSCRIPTION MONEY !

(AP) Associated Press summed it up nicely…

Earlier this week, Cumia posted tweets and photos about
what he said was an attack on him as he took photos in Times Square.

He said a woman, angered at being photographed,
called him a “white mother (expletive)” and then repeatedly punched him.
He said he defended himself without hitting back.

In subsequent tweets about the confrontation,
Cumia let loose a string of profanity & insults against the black woman,
including describing her as “pig face worthless”
& using an anti-female expletive.
“This was an animal. I shoulda smashed it’s face,” he wrote.

In later tweets, after being condemned as a racist
in some Twitter postings, Cumia said he was the victim
and was being unfairly derided over his views of violence in the black community.

Asked by one Twitter poster if he had reported the attack to authorities,
Cumia responded that he could take punches without wasting the police’s time.

YOU GOTTA CHECK

WHEN YOU DEAL WITH UK PHRASES…


I saw this headline on the UK DailyMail
and thought it a little too sexual for them…

IS YOUR HAIRY PLUG-HOLE

THE REASON YOU ARE SINGLE ?


I’m not a fan of a women with a ‘hairy plug-hole’ either…

but it turns out this article was about ‘habits’
that turn your partner ‘off’…

and the plug-hole they are talking about
is the drain in a bathtub !  Yes, I guess it is a plug-hole.
I just never called it that.

(plus if you don’t remove the hair, the water sits)

WORLD  CUP

Y’know… Mexico had alot of nerve
being so vocally insulted by the Dutch Airline graphic
after their win over Mexico.  Mexicans took offense
to the inclusion of a ‘frito bandito’ type caricature
included as a part of the ad.

(it was taken down without comment)

I SAID THEY HAD ‘NERVE’
since
Mexican fans are known to shout
(and I’m talking entire arena)
a gay slur every time the opposing goalie touches the ball…

PUTO  PUTO  PUTO
Officials say its out of their control !

Shame on them…

Not for the ‘chant’… they can say what they want,
but, when you’re the one in-the-barrel,
be gracious about it !
