Frontline's Frothy Fulminations

Let me first say. I enjoy Frontline. For free tv, it's pretty much top shelf. Their latest offering is Money, Power and Wall Street.  It kicked off last night with a double episode.  Ya'll can watch the first two hours online. Two more hours to follow.

It was an in-depth recounting of the Wall Street implosion that we witnessed circa '08.

What I found grating was the soft peddling of the criminality of it all. Not that they avoided it all together. The focus was more on the technical aspects and "How could we have known?" versus "Those Sonsabitches just robbed the Treasury!".

The background info of how BHO was plugged in during the run up to the election was interesting.
They've got extended interviews online as well. Maybe some of the "Gangsta Bankster" sentiment can be found there.

I plan on watching the rest of it. Maybe even rewatching the beginning. Just so I can take names for my list.

Bacon magic

This has been amazing me for a while.
As a beginning, D-Class Blogger, I've been learning that certain topics reap more eyeballs than others.
Witness the power of Bacon!
It's like magic!
My single post using the magic  word was just a pointer to another blog I like, still pulls eyeballs

Mystery Solved comes in a distant second. That's attributed to a single comment from an A-List Scribe. Thanks Tam.

And just to not feel like I'm merely trolling for hits, I'll address the topic of Bacon magic.
I've known that this is possible for awhile.  Oven Baked Bacon. I finally tried it.
Cooking bacon without all the turning and stove top baby sitting, oven baking really works.
Crispy deliciousness the easy way. I may never cook bacon on the stove top again.

Finished my taxes

The hardest part was getting the expression of "Sorry - No Money for You" on the form.

Mitt Romney addresses NRA today

July 1, 2004; Mitt signs Massachusetts State Assault Weapons Ban
NRA Life Member since 2006, Mitt will be addressing the NRA convention in person today.
I'm sure that he'll be sayin' things the audience wants to hear.

Do ya feel like you've got no other option?
Do ya trust him more than the "other guy"?

The money quote from a Massachusetts resident, Henry Dane, president of the Concord Rod & Gun Club 
"I'm willing to give him a chance on these issues because I think his heart is much closer to being in the right place then the other guy,"

Overall the HuffPo article seems to be written as a COINTELPRO piece written with a smirk, sowing seeds of doubt about the "R" guy. Like ... Where ya gonna go?
Bottomline? I've got no doubts. You can't trust any politician to protect your rights.

See ... this is why i never believe you.

Whats with the trademark? Has the word "justice" been trademarked? the concept?

(Reuters) - An internal NBC News probe has determined a "seasoned" producer was to blame for a misleading clip of a 911 call that the network broadcast during its coverage of the Trayvon Martin shooting, according to two sources at the network.
"Reporting" a close approximation of the facts isn't enough. They must "form" public opinion.
I know how the average Russkie felt at the height of the Old Soviet Empire. The only reason I tune in anymore is to catch the latest lies and propaganda.
