I can’t abide / Fox’s Five – anymore

Done. This time I mean it. Don’t know if I will be alive in ten years, and, don’t know if my country will be alive in ten years—although, my hopes increased dramatically by 1100 hours on Election Night. But, in ten years I will not be watching and listening to Juan Williams spin, emote, make faces, and lie. I say the same for Geraldo, departed Julie Roginsky, Marie Barf, Jessica whats-her-name, Richard Fowler (always smiling jerk), and whoever the designated “Fair and Balanced” moron happens to be.

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” (Who said that? What was the name of that movie?)

(Will I switch to MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CNN? Umm, no! I still have a brain. NFL Network? Nope.)The Five

This evening, on the NFL-Kapernick topic, Juan stated that President Trump said, ‘I think the owners are afraid of the Black players.’ No, Juan. You inserted the word, Black. And none of The Four called you on it, as usual.

While naming all of the possible reasons for disrespecting our national anthem, it seems that no one was clear on the exact intent by the kneelers. White Supremacy was mentioned. None of The Five addressed that question, though. Neither has the MSM. Neither did Juan directly address that issue, although he did his customary dance-around-topic.

Is “White Supremacy” the problem in our country? Are cops the enemy of the Black people? Which sub-culture has greater numbers? White Supremacy racists, or, Black Power racists? Will ‘The Five’ (or anybody else) answer that question, with facts and statistics? But this is not the focus of my post.

I have always decried the Fox News ROE (Rules of Engagement). The show(s) is rehearsed. The topics are discussed prior to Prime Time, and, both a format and boundaries are agreed upon. Do not go outside the boundaries! Do not attack ‘the person’! This is ENTERTAINMENT. Do not directly challenge a teammate’s statement. Challenge an opinion, but do not call anyone a liar!

In my humble opinion, listening to Kimberly Guilfoyle (and admiring her…everything) is a great pleasure in life. I like Dana Perino, when she is not being a RINO-UK-influenced-fence straddler. I miss the adult male in the room, Eric Bolling. Gutfeld is hilarious, except when he is revealing his love for substances and disdain for Christians. I think Kennedy is also hilarious, as well as intelligent, pretty, and, unafraid. (I would feel safe walking into any New York dark alley with Dana Loesh and Kennedy by my side! Ha!) (We would all be having fun, and, armed to the teeth.)

However, sorry Fox News: I have decided to listen to my primary physician, my psychiatrist, and my heart. I love The Four. But I have to say goodbye. “Goodbye, Chris Wallace, ‘Meltdown’ Sheppie, Arturo Neville (?) & Eric (Swan?), Caputo, and whoever that bimbo is who tries to debate Katie Pavlich. Am I not going to enjoy ‘Morning with Friends’? Bret Baier? ‘Outnumbered’ so long as Geraldo or Juan isn’t there? Martha McCallum? Tucker? *(I’m starting to get sleepy.) Hell no!

The World is not ‘Fair and Balanced’. The World would be much better off if everyone picked a side, chose which country they want to live in, which party they identify with, who they wished to worship, and spoke honestly about what they want. But that ain’t happening. Too bad.

I’m tired of the SPIN. I have made my choices and my picks. #MAGA #God Bless America.

Goodbye, Five.

“The Utter Complete Total Fraud of Wind Power’ (Matt Ridley presents the facts)

A former, second-generation electrical contractor and apprenticeship instructor, I have always understood the efficacy of “generated” electrical power, whether with fossil fuel or nuclear energy–and the extremely limited ability of d.c. sources to power the world. This article proves that, plus shines spotlights on the ugly (inconvenient) truth of wind-power.

Iowa Climate Science Education

“[I]t is utterly futile, on a priori grounds, even to think that wind power can make any significant contribution to world energy supply, let alone to emissions reductions, without ruining the planet. As the extraordinary polymath Sir David MacKay pointed out, the arithmetic is against such unreliable renewables.”

– Matt Ridley, “Wind is an Irrelevance to the Energy and Climate Debate“(May 15, 2017)

An op-ed and blog post several months ago by Matt Ridley is still making the rounds. A great thinker, Ridley gets to the essence of things and is hard to ignore, even by his critics. His book The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves(2010), is a seminal contribution in the Julian Simon tradition. (His other work can be found here.)

Here are some salient excerpts from his op-ed/post:

“[Wind power’s] contribution is still, after decades — nay centuries — of development, trivial to the point of irrelevance.  Even…
