    I think, and I’ve carefully considered all the ramifications, that we should deliberately and brutally purge editorializing from all national news and end the feeding frenzies about gays, trannies, Russians, BLM, race, jihadis, and on and on and on.

    Provide 3 national news broadcasts daily: 0600, 1300, and 2200 and report only the FACTS, sans supposition, sans interpretation, sans accusation. If a riot breaks out, say so, but no faces, no names, no specifics on the national edition.

    Mention it once, as in “An unruly mob of malcontents and criminals disrupted business in _______ today, destroying public and personal property. Several arrests resulted, and authorities have restored order.” Local stations can augment as necessary for the good of their communities, such as power outages, road blockages, idiot outrages.

    Much of the BLM and terrorism and other sensationalist disorder is basically monkey-see/monkey-do, and if you stop running clips of the initial monkeys, the me-toos might not ever get the notion. We have plenty of laws, watchdogs, loyal opposition, and judges to ensure compliance with Constitutional guidelines and limits for governance.

    Give PotUS 2 solid years to do what he was hired to do — reduce the size of government, resuscitate the economy, repair the infrastructure, replace the tax code, restore affordable health care, rebuild the military, reject the illegals. Watch carefully, but give him some room and some help.

    Then at the end of his first term, if he’s been a total failure, fire him. It’s a good system . . . one which worked until political correctness and legislative gridlock took over.

    I DO NOT THINK KID ROCK IS HANDSOME, I GOT CONFUSED BETWEEN HIM AND DWAYNE ‘ROCK’ JOHNSON, WHO IS HANDSOME!

    So, now the country can rest easy. Even if Trump DID recertify the dastardly Iran nuclear deal. Of course, Fox is turning into CNN, announcing this recertification and then showing a campaign clip of Pence saying “And this president will make sure Iran never has the capacity to build nuclear bombs” (I paraphrase, but the message was clear; another promise broken, folks, brought to you by Murdock’s extremely liberal daughters-in-law).

    CI…tell us which you find the most hyperbolic and why…….I’d like to hear your take. Of course there are quite a few actual accomplishments.

    Ed, would that it’d be that easy for Price to rescind points about Obama care…he couldn’t Repeal and Replace, but suddenly he can change things individuals don’t like? That sounds nuts to me… what do you think?

    Bocopro…do you know how long I’ve talked here about returning to “news at 5, film at 11”? OH, do I wish. “purge editorializing”….the minute I saw, years ago, every article in the LA Times suddenly got a byline, I knew we were in trouble because every non-proven ‘journalist’ whose opinion nobody cares about but their mother suddenly had A VOICE. That HAS to stop. Let the experts opine….let the not-yet-experts give news…just facts.

  8. Z – tell us which you find the most hyperbolic and why

    The most obvious is “Strongly and successfully challenged political correctness”. This is just fluff. It’s meaningless. Not only does “political correctness” have no definition or metric, both sides of the spectrum engage in it.

    Though I don’t really consider the fairly effortless Executive Orders to be much in the way of accomplishments….the above stands in stark contrast even to those.

    I am not a practicing Christian, but I am not offended by seasonal “Merry Christmas!” felicitations. In fact, they are to me MUCHO preferable to shouts of Allahu Akhbar and Death to the Infidel! and muezzin mooing over loudspeakers from the parapets and minarets.

    I understand CI’s attitude towards some of the cheer leading stuff put out by the Trump folks. But, maybe it’s about time we did some cheerleading, a perfectly American thing to do.

    Thanks to CI, though, for bringing up the asset forfeiture rule. It is unconstitutional. To think that the government can seize you assets, and freeze your accounts based on, well, nothing. If you have $10,000 in cash, or look weird, they can take your stuff. They can impound you car, house, boat, and airplane. They can sell them at public auction. All because some cop doesn’t like you.

    The point is people don’t have to be told not to say Merry Christmas or anything else. Glad to consider myself a ‘zealot’ in a country which was so much better and happier when Christmas at schools, parks and state buildings was fun and uplifting, even if people weren’t Christians, according to many of my own non-Christian friends.

    I just don’t look at Christmas or God as the big threat some seem to. Thank GOD.

    Bob, I think America can use some cheer leading, too. And I find it troublesome when I hear people like Obama considering patriotism nationalism in an ugly, suggestive way.

    Bocopro, usually it starts right after Thanksgiving and I think that’s way too early, too. But I never find it offensive…. I see too much happiness , people in better moods, joy that doesn’t exist the rest of the year.

    And we only have to be crassy commercial if we wish. I remember asking a Jewish friend a few years ago if he’d been offended as a child when kids were still allowed to sing anything Christmassy at all at public schools. His response was “oh, sure…I hated seeing everyone happy, hearing happy music, even getting gifts, eating Christmas cookies”..Sarcastic, of course.

    We are offended by that which we want to offend us.

  27. But, maybe it’s about time we did some cheerleading…

    Bob – I think cheerleading is fine, it’s a natural part of what political parties do…..as long as it doesn’t replace accountability for when things aren’t quite so cheery.

    Sessions renewed effort towards stealing the goods and monetary assets of Citizens, is merely part of a larger effort to fund his “war” on drugs. Both equally un-Constitutional in my eyes, at least at the Federal level. Most Americans don’t care, because they don’t know. It doesn’t affect them…until it does. It’s truly scary that we willing empower our government to treat us in this fashion.
