Ghostbusters, Ronna McDaniel, Ted Kennedy, and Other Random Thoughts



Random thoughts concerning the past week: 

• These color episodes of The Andy Griffith Show just plain suck. Will the show get funnier if I adjust my TV settings to black and white? 

• I thought about going to see the new Ghostbusters movie, but I decided that if the purpose of any new film is not to tell a good story but instead to sell toys, merchandise, or McDonald’s Happy Meals then perhaps I’ll wait to stream it at home. 

• The Nashville School shooting happened a year ago this week. The shooter was, of course, a woman who supposedly transitioned into a man and took testosterone injections to do it. Any man will tell you that testosterone is something we had to learn to control over a period of years, if not decades. That’s why teenage boys do stupid stuff and have low impulse control. You inject a naturally born female with that stuff over a short time span….and it’s no surprise the shooter got violent and aggressive. 

• Whenever I think about transgendered people, I think about something people on the coast learn when they refuse to flee a category 5 hurricane. Whenever you try to fight nature….nature wins. Always. Don’t fight Mother Nature. Otherwise bad things happen. 

• I’ve talked about my experiences working in corporate media here and here and here. The business with NBC firing Ronna McDaniel solely on the basis that she is a Republican does not surprise me. Never underestimate just how much the folks inside corporate media (at the national OR local levels) despise you if you’re a Republican or a conservative. With or without Donald Trump, people in corporate media are petty and flat-out consider conservatives the enemy. 

• The whole Ronna McDaniel thing reminds me of a quote from William F. Buckley: “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”  

• Ted Kennedy was credited as coming up the concept for what eventually became known as Obamacare. This month is the 14th anniversary of Barack Obama signing that legislation into law. Obamacare, I personally believe, was Ted Kennedy’s oddball way to atone for all of his infidelities, for his alcoholism, and for that awful thing he did to Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick in 1969. Unfortunately, to assuage Kennedy’s guilt, a lot of honest middle-class people lost their preferred health insurance and have to pay more money now for fewer benefits.
