I rarely really watch TV unless it is older shows but I leave it on. To be honest, I leave it on certain channels until I am completely offended and then I switch — or I make notes about it.
The TV was on NBC5-Chicago when I got home because that was what I was watching at 6:30 this morning.
Brian Williams was being usurped by a blaring alarm on and off during the entire 30 minute segment (6:30 EST/5:30 CST). He explained that alarm testing was going on at adjacent floors.
The building I work in has a similar alarm system. It is NOT that obnoxious between floors.
So I am wondering, … Are the sets of major network TV news studios filled with such worthless producers (and their subjects), that no one would take a hammer to the apparently uncontrollable speaker in their studio during a commercial?
Actually I should rephrase that ……. NBC News, Brian Williams, producers, uncontrollable, worthless, speaker.
This is the city. Los Angeles California. It’s a big place, and getting bigger all the time. …
— Skip to about 2:30
Capt. Lou Richey: It’s not just a problem of law enforcement, it’s a community problem.
Sergeant Pearson: Trouble is there is no community captain. These people come piling in here from every where. They dont know each other and don’t want to. They come out here, make a down payment on a house and move in with a couple of kids. That doesn’t mean they made a home no more than givin’ a name to a place makes it a community.
Sergeant Joe Friday: Yeah and you get a littele weary of hearing every kid give you the same excuse when you tag them. You don’t understand, I just wanna to belong thats why I did it. Belong to what?
Capt. Lou Richey: What it boils down to is the new morality, doesn’t it, a whole new sense of values. The kids see it on television, in magazines. Even hear it from the pulpit. God is dead. Drug addiction is mind expanding. Promiscuity is glamorous. Even homosexuality is praiseworthy. How you gonna fight that?
Officer Bill Gannon: It ain’t easy.
Capt. Lou Richey: What you got to remember that, the vast majority of the juveniles you’re handling are the kids next store. They’re not hard core criminals. It’s just that for them it’s a great deal more important to be accepted by the other kids than to please their parents. …..
This aired in 1967. People who held conservative Christian values thought there was moral decay being professed on television before I was born.
What would they think of current network television programming?
What would they think of our current leaders?
What would they think of the current immigration situation?
And, what do the people old enough, who supposedly held those values in 1967, think of themselves now with the leadership to whom they have given support?
o If you think all men are pigs, expect to live alone when you get older.
o Prince Charming is gay
o Rich, attractive, nice – you can only pick two when dealing with single men.
o If you ask a man on a first date how much he earns or what kind of car he drives, he gets to look at your bare breasts while you are still in the restaurant.
o If you answer your cell phone during a first date, he has the right to immediately get up and leave with no explanation.
o Choosy and “stuck up” are closely related.
o If you expect a man to pay for everything, you’ll need a strong jaw and a good tongue.
o Perfect men don’t exist. Good men are everywhere.
o The karmic retribution for putting good men into the FriendZone while getting hurt by bad boys is to become bitter, angry, and the owner of at least three cats.
o You are not a princess no matter what your T-Shirt states. If you really think you are a princess, then you’d better have the body of a stripper, the face of an angel, and the personality of a saint. Even so, only Prince Charming can marry a princess and Prince Charming is gay.
o Your single girlfriends don’t want you to have a happy relationship with a man, that’s why they’re single and always telling you to “never settle”. Consider this when listening to their advice.
o A man won’t say “I love you” until he is 100% confident that you won’t use this against him. This might take years, be patient because men can be sensitive, too.
o Taking the time to look your best is not optional. After all, if you can catch his eye then you can catch his heart. Being agreeable, pleasant, and happy will seal the deal.
o Smiles and laughter are contagious and can melt any man’s heart.
o The unintended consequence of independence is loneliness.
o Excessive complaining is neither attractive nor polite.
o You are entitled to nothing. However, you can expect rewards for working hard for something.
o Before you say “it’s all his fault” after a bad date, look closely in the mirror.
o It’s not always men making you unhappy. Don’t let bitter women convince you of that.
o Being strong doesn’t mean being bitchy. Wise women have known this for generations.
o You can’t have it all. Please have the good sense to realize this.
o Compromise is not surrender, it’s what is necessary to have a good relationship.
o Don’t expect men to fall all over you just because you are a woman. Men have learned Game.
o There’s nothing wrong with looking feminine. Men like it.
o If he doesn’t call you back, it means he’s just not really into you. Deal with it.
o If you meet a man, don’t find reasons to reject him or things to change in him. Find reasons to accept him and respect him.
o The common word in “drink whore” and “dinner whore” is still whore.
o Sorry girl, it’s not all about you so you can change your T-Shirt now and grow up.
o Many men would rather chase women, not girls, so grow up if you don’t want to be single anymore.
o Given the current state of divorce laws, don’t expect any man to marry you. It’s not you, it’s just how things are right now.
o Hanging around gay men won’t give you any useful insights about straight men. Frankly, always hanging around gay men is kind of creepy. Um, they think it’s kind of creepy, too.
o “No fat chicks” is the man’s version of “If you’re rich, I’m single”.
o Winning a man is easy, keeping a man requires hard work.
o Advertising “Bitch” on your T-Shirt or sweatpants won’t get you any dates. No man cares for that attitude.
o Deferring self-gratification is a sign of maturity. You can wait until dinner even if you’re hungry now.
o The real world is pushy, rude, and often unpleasant. That doesn’t mean you have to be the same way.
o If you dress like a whore, expect to be treated like a whore.
