Mankind are governed more by their feelings than by reason - Samuel Adams


I had to comment on this email from [Michael Benner], former talk show host from KLOS. I used to stay up late many many nights listening to his great show "Impact" in the 80's The email appears, and you can read it on

He says: I believe we're witnessing a cultural shift away from the anger, hostility, and no-so-veiled racism and misogyny that's become the hallmark of right-wing talk radio in the past two decades. As you can see Michael doesn't listen to right wing talk radio, or he would know that that comment is just completely false. Just boring talking points from the left, really boring, and bringing up race only points back at you my friend. He says: Americans are becoming burned-out, turned-off, and increasingly intolerant of the angst, really Michael, how would you know? Life is about all the range of emotions, anger, happiness, love, passion, depression, stress, etc. Gradation Michael, not black and white, I get it. I'm sure Michael would call me a reactionary.

***Michael also called the good people of the Tea Party that have the values of our founders and care about Liberty, and freedom and small government, tea baggers. Really a vile comment, and a really vile image. He said this on Twitter.

He says: Young people especially are turning to Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher for their ‘news.’ Yea stupid people that only want the liberal side of news that is skewed to the left and are just flat out too lazy to explore all news sources. He says: Ever wonder why there's no levity, no humor, no happiness, nothing that feels good in right-wing radio and tv programming? See he never listens to conservative radio.... ever, this comment makes no sense and is not at all true. He says: I believe the pendulum is swinging back toward a desire to hear positive, solution-oriented talk and news programming that is both honest and true. That comment is Talk Radio. I know you think you have the wisdom of the ages but you are living in a bubble Michael, you should have stayed a talk show host, you were really good, and entertaining.

I have listened to radio my whole life and to characterize it the way Michael Benner does is just plain not true. It's just a liberal point of view that has been manufactured for an agenda. Hey Michael this site might appear to be a Tea Party fan site, I'm not a member, but I am a liberty loving American conservative. I'm very angry about a lot of things but nobody laughs more than I do. It's a balance. I'm a really nice guy, just ask my wife :)

[RADIO]Jerry Seinfeld in a new interview by Alec Baldwin on his WNYC Show "Here's the Thing". 50 minutes.

Something is up at KABC. Substitutes on during the [Larry Elder Show]. Larry gone. Baseball on. And of course the station does not explain this and it just happens. I hope Larry is pissed and just won't do the show because of baseball game preempting his show. I won't be listening to KABC while this happens.

Here is a revealing article on the book.

From American Public Media, The Story
Dick Gordon’s final thoughts about his eight years hosting the program.

[SIRIUSXM][Art Bell] was saying that a guest that he booked was also booked on "The other show". His guest said he was gonna hold back the good stuff for Art's show. Art also said that George Noory dropped saying his name at the end of the show when he thanks everyone. Art said that he might start saying Georges name and thanking him for making his new show.....necessary.

Thursday night.
George Noory cancels guests to appear on Coast to Coast that are on Art Bell's Dark Matter tonight.

[TECH]Microsoft's Windows 8.1 arrives: A look back, and ahead
Microsoft's latest version of Windows, 8.1, arrives this week. CNET takes a look at what came before it, and what's still ahead.

I've always been a windows guy. It was just a lot cheaper. I bought my first computer in May 1992, the OS was Windows 3.1. The computer was a mail order unit from Treasure Chest somewhere in Louisiana. I paid $1800 for it. I loved the hell out of it. I've used almost every version. I'll be upgrading to a new machine with Windows 8.1 come March.
