I’m a huge Judge Judy fan like a lot of us that like this type of program. Court shows make me laugh. Many reasons but the main ones include the stupidity of people who go on national television for their 15 minutes of fame and come off looking real stupid. Another reason clear to all of us is just how uneducated most people are using the worst language and grammatical phrasing showing there really is a problem with the public education system in America.
But I still watch Judge Judy every day. 4PM on CBS2 in Los Angeles, two 30 minute episodes.
Yesterday’s Judge Judy episode was classic. A couple of guys get in to a brawl at a local event where one was accused of knocking the teeth out of the mouth of the other. That’s enough to make me crack the heck up. But this segment you’ll see in the YouTube video and the reaction of Judge Judy and those in the gallery is classic. Enjoy.
You can’t even watch television anymore, see a commercial featuring an inter-racial couple and their child without the stench of racism spewing through certain viewers hiding behind their keyboards. I mean really, what the hell is going on, right?
You see this is what is wrong with America. We have a large group of liberals, those of many racial colors, speaking regularly that racism is something of the past when they look at the White House and see an African American President and a First Lady living in the main quarter.
Some folks just can’t get over that fact. And no matter what happens some people will see that accomplishment of being in the main quarters instead of the servant quarters as a move toward equality in America. And I’m here to say that it’s not.
I stopped eating Cheerios. Though I love me some Honey Nut Cheerios, my diet says to stay away from the carbohydrates and stick to a diet that will keep my weight in check. That move keeps me under 200 pounds and that’s where I want to stay but I may have to change that diet just for a moment.
General Mills had the balls to put this ad on television. And quite frankly, to be honest, when I saw this white mother, her mixed race baby and the African American father I had to watch the damn commercial about 20 times. Saying to myself, “Cheerios did what?”
The creative as they call it in the ad world brought out the racist pigs that live in this country. The racist, biased pigs come out and deride the commercial forcing General Mills to drop the comments on the commercial on YouTube and other video outlets.
OK every once in a while there’s something cool on the internet. Every once in a while there’s a really good idea that you’ll say “why didn’t I think of that” when it comes to the new delivery system they are testing at Domino’s.
Think of this…your pizza getting delivered by a drone instead of a real human being driving around town in a beat up car attempting to get to your house in 30 minutes and pretty much causing more accidents than getting pizzas to you on time.
Well Domino’s has the idea.
It won’t work. As I wrote on one blog today the Law Offices of Larry H. Parker will be right on hand when one of these things crashes down on someone but there are some neighborhoods where this could really work. Think some suburban areas where the closes pizza joint or Domino’s is a few miles away and there’s nothing but hills and farms around. This could really work there.
The DomiCopter I gotta say is really cool. But the first time one of those things comes crashing and burning to the ground it’s going to be all hell for Domino’s. But this thing from my standpoint is really pretty cool.
Once again a classic example. Well I’ve never been one to believe that the people in journalism today have any clue as to the industry was when newspeople at radio stations wore suits to deliver the news to listeners rather than today’s t-shirt, jeans and sneakers generation. But if you read my post below about why Johnny and Hamid can’t spell, well this morning’s edition of the Today Show during the 8AM hour was an example of the mishap known as the American education.
Pete Williams from The Today Show and NBC News
Justice Department reporter Pete William, who quite frankly happens to be the best journalist on television, was giving a report on the Supreme Court rulings that are to come down this week from that happy group of men and women in Washington. Now Pete Williams is a pure pro. Not like some of the knuckleheads you see on FOX News or MSNBC or even the network news names on CBS or ABC. If I have to watch another Chris Matthews liberal rant or Bob Schieffer blame everything on President Obama I will surely puke. But Pete Williams is a consummate professional journalist from the old school.Well they made Pete Williams look like a dork today on the Today Show.
Twice during his report the control room supered up “New This Monring” instead of “morning” under Pete Williams during his report. You can see the mistake in the photo that is with this story.
Now I know most people, and this is the sad part of today’s journalism, will just chalk it up to a simple mistake. Most good journalists will look at this, shake their heads left to right, and be glad they found something else to do in the later stages of their careers than be a journalist.
White men, African American men, beware. Soon we may become extinct. Like dinosaurs. Really, white men and African American men are in real trouble in America. I probably can throw in a few other minorities and genders in some other extinct headed names in to the mix but after watching some of the National Spelling Bee on ESPN this morning (yes it was a repeat performance as the winner was chosen last week) there is a new generation of educational leadership and it’s not any of the expected categories.
Arvind Mahankali First Place Winner National Spelling Bee
The Championship Finalists were selected and there was not one, not one white kid. Looking for any African American kids, well you’d better not look at the list of finalists for the National Spelling Bee on ESPN.
Working my StairMaster this morning at the 24 Hour Fitness I had my iPod blasting some smooth jazz in my ears as I watched the flat screen in front of me checking out the National Spelling Bee. Now let me say for the record that the only class I was actually good at during my days in any level of education was spelling. And gym. And then dodge ball.
Other than that I was a simple moron in school.
But we’re facing a real issue in America today. And I’m calling out all of you parents that have kids in school yet most are only competent in text speak. You know the simple moronic communication of “LOL” which means “lots of laughs” or “TTYL” which stands for “talk to you later” and on and on with the massive amount of text speak mediocrity.
Yes, there’s not much more left in America today when none of the 11 finalists in the National Spelling Bee is a white male kid or African American child. Not one.
This is an absolute nightmare for the education system and I derive this from watching ESPN, which of course is about as close as you can come to an episode of Jerry Springer.
Yes we have too many Angry White Men and Angry Black Men in this country. White dudes complain about getting shorted and a raw deal and all of the blame for just about everything. Black men whine and moan about not being able to get a job, being held down by the white man and whatever other reason they use to put the blame on everyone else but themselves. But we have a problem in America.
A lot of people can’t spell.
Personally I don’t have to go far to see prime examples of the mediocrity of white and black males. Especially when it comes to being able to put words together in some sort of order that makes sense. I see a lot of resumes. A lot. Mostly from white guys looking for work. I own a business that deals in the mainstream and I am stunned at the lack of professionalism from some of the people I deal with every day.
Some of these people are simple morons. Morons. Hey moron, there’s a thing call ‘spell check’ on your damn computer. Wanna try to use it?
Black men, well you don’t get a break. Not at all. I interviewed one black male who came in to my office in jeans and lug looking boots for, yes, once again, an interview. I had two black men come in to my office for a meeting and both were eating a meal as they met me for the first time.
I’m not kidding.
Rick Thomas RealTVCritics.com MediaRich Marketing
One was munching on a donut, the other had stopped down at the McDonald’s down the street from my office prior to coming to my office. Both of these morons came in munching away.
This may read funny but it’s not. When I look at the names and determine the nationality of the top 11 finalists at the National Spelling Bee 9 of them were of Indian or Middle Eastern descent and a couple of white girls.
Am I the only one that sees this as a problem in America?
Sure these kids are citizens of this great country but every once in a while I’d like to see a person of my color or a person that looks like me compete in an educational environment.
Lots of laughs, right. Well seriously this is a problem. Nothing left to say but the next time I hear a white guy or an African American dude complain about their position in life, they’re fading away, there are too many immigrants in this country, women are taking over well the only thing I will say as I’m leaving is that I will talk to you later.
Oh please will somebody just take this Jodi Arias and throw her in a prison.
You know I love crap TV. I watch it all the time. It takes me away from the idiots that call themselves politician in Washington, the tornadoes in Oklahoma where I have to check in on friends to see if they’re still alive or calling people that I worked with in Boston after a couple of third world bottom-feeders decided to set off explosives at the Boston Marathon. Yes I worked at WBZ Radio in the late 80’s and the finish line was where we had a hospitality suite and enjoyed that day.
So crap TV is a break. It really is.
Jane Velez Mitchell
But this Jodi Arias trial is so damn engaging. Watching these reporters have absolute orgasms over the stupidity of Jodi Arias had me on the floor laughing with delight. That Jane Velez-Mitchell, who worked in Philly when I lived in that city, actually did an interview with a dog. A damn dog.
Apparently Jodi Arias left a dog in the house after she stabbed and shot and sliced her boyfriend in to pieces and this is what I have to watch on HLN or Headline News.
Gotta love it!!!
There’s a lot of crap on television. And if someone says something wrong about me watching The Maury Show or Judge Judy all they need to do is turn on Headline News.
OK so you gotta give the guy a break. He is 75 years old and for any movie studio to set up what is termed a Satellite Media Tour in New York to have two really old actors try to stay awake is surely a challenge. Just for the record and SMT is when you sit in a studio for hours doing interviews on television stations all across the country to promote a movie. In this case Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman were pitching Now You See Me on Seattle’s Fox affiliate Q13.
Now the two anchors, for their amateur efforts, are really amateurs. Seattle seems to be a feeder market for other major stations across the country and these two interviewers are pretty much ready for Boise as they are probably ask dumbest questions ever. Either that or the movie studio that produced Now You See Me needs to get another rep that will give these anchors pre-set questions. I mean do I really want Morgan Freeman giving advice to the anchors tween daughter on narration?
But Morgan Freeman clearly had a late night. And it showed as Q13 must have been the last of a long line of interviews with him and Michael Caine. He sure does seem to nod off.
Here’s a look at some of the trailers for the new CBS television season. Will Arnett’s The Miller’s should be one hell of a hit if the trailer is a real look at the show. This may be one of the best new shows of the season. You be the judge.
Robin Williams comes to television again from way back when as in Mork & Mindy but this one will be on the bubble. As much as I really like Robin Williams I’m am sort of lukewarm on his new effort in The Crazy Ones. Once again you be the judge.
Love Marg Helgenberger from the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigation but this one seems to be really stupid. Called Intelligence it seems not intelligent at all but take a look and let us know what you think.
Another dumb one with Anna Farris and Alison Janney who comes off The West Wing with one that will probably be a loser like Marg’s Intelligence. This one is really bad.
The new Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott thing called Hostages is more than stupid. No more needs to be said. Dylan McDermott should have stayed with American Horror Story.
More to come. But this is a good taste of some of the new programs coming up on CBS.
There are several winners that look as if they could really bring new sizzle to FOX. A few others look like duds. This first one, Sleepy Hollow, looks like a winner.
Pretty good, ya think? This next one, well I like Christopher Meloni but this one will be on the bubble if the trailer is any example of what the content of this new comedy will be.
Yeah you get my drift? Not overly engaging. But has some promise. This one, Gang Related, is simply stupid.
Pretty awful, right. Moving right along.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Now every one of us would like to see Andre Braugher get a real hit. This probably isn’t it. Men of a Certain Age was fantastic and he was fantastic but clearly not stupid enough to gain a decent audience but this show Brooklyn Nine-Nine featuring Andy Samberg has gained that level of pure stupidity.
Could be fun. But Andre may need to keep his resume handy because this one is another bubble. Think The Office in a police precinct but even dumber.
This surely is not The Kennedys. And Greg Kinnear must need the work to agree to be in this mess.
Matthew Perry was about as creatively funny during this interview as he was during his show Go On which just got canceled by NBC.
Matthew Perry from NBC’s ‘Go On’
Meaning he was not…funny that is. Go On was pretty awful. Except for Julie White. Who pretty much has the best legs on television. Yes if you get a chance to watch Go On on Hulu or On Demand you will see the best legs on television especially since Julie White is 51 years of age and had to get stuck on a show that was headed for the canceled bin since the first episode.
If you watch this interview with Matthew Perry during the intermission of an LA Kings game you will see why the show is gone. The guy seems to be a nice dude but he’s not funny. And that came across during the show.
Because Go On, as a concept, was relatively smart. It’s just Matthew Perry couldn’t carry the show and his personality was simply boring. He needs a strong cast around him and although Julie White’s fine legs were worth the half hour, the rest of the cast just weren’t Friends.
Oh well. Bye bye, Go On . But this video is surely funny.
