“No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar” - Abraham Lincoln



[COMMENT]This week I am literally stunned into silence. It was very hard to come up with something to write about. The things going on in our government are just indescribable and horrifying. We are being told one thing and then something else happens. I knew it was bad news 5 years ago. It feels like total manipulation to me. It's amazing how well versed our President is in talking his way out of things or just out and out lying. We live in times where you can say anything and if you have enough people on your team to back up what you said, you're golden. The left will get to a point where they can justify anything for the cause, does it remind you of a time in the past? It can get really bad if you have read history. And don't think it can't. Really horrible things in this world have happened, like a frog in a pot.

Dennis Prager wrote a piece this week:
Obama Doing Lasting Damage to America
"Virtually nothing Barack Obama has done has left America or the world better since he became president," Prager concluded. "Nearly everything he has touched has been made worse."

Remember talk show host [Joe Crummey?] He's written a book. He was on the air in Phoenix last I heard and now his facbook page say's he was at WABC till recently. I heard he got laid off and wrote this book. He's a great host and I always enjoyed him on the air here in LA. I posted on his facebook page and he answered me right back, thanking me. I have a friend that bought a bunch of these books. Can't wait to read it.

Thursday Hugh Hewitt asked an LA Times reporter on the air if when the President said that if you like your doctor and your healthcare plan you could keep it...was he lying? The LA Times reporter hung up on him. I think he's a Liberal, might have hurt is widdle feewings.

[SIRIUSXM][Art Bell] on Tuesday did an interview with John McAfee. It will be replayed on the weekend. He sounded pretty sane to me. Has some new product coming out that will encrypt communication on the web spurred on by the NSA spying. He's still living outside the US. Really interesting interview. Just go and get SiriusXM if you don't already have it, I think it rocks and is well worth the $15 a month.



Boy this sounds smart ;(. Clear Channel is getting way over confident.
Clear Channel sells SiriusXM stake.
In a move that will result in most of its content disappearing from Sirius XM Radio, Clear Channel has sold its holdings in the satellite radio company.

Clear Channel is a company to beware of, they are way too big and think they can do no wrong. They are about making money and not caring about you, the listener at all.

[PODCASTS][Henry Buskin], [Johnny Carson's] long time lawyer who just wrote a book about Johnny was on with [Adam Carolla]. I'm listening to this book in the car this week and man oh man is it great. It's way in the middle of the show and is pretty short. But worth a listen to hear Adam talk about what he thought of Carson.

[TECH]It was on, October 29, 1969, when the first ARPANET link was established in California between the University of California at Los Angeles and Stanford.
By December 5, two more universities had been connected -- University of Utah and the University of California, Santa Barbara.

This four-node network became the core of today's Internet.

TuneIn hits 100,000 milestone. Streaming radio aggregator TuneIn announced Wednesday that it crossed a milestone — it now has more than 100,000 stations on its service. “This year alone, we’ve added thousands of stations,” the company says. It didn’t disclose how many of its stations come from broadcast radio, but it noted that it’s added Radio Disney and the public radio show “This American Life” in recent months. TuneIn doesn’t disclose listener metrics, but it does say it has a user base of 40 million active listeners — although it doesn’t break how many are overseas.
