Enemy of the People

Behavior of the reporters at the president’s news conference yesterday was outrageous and insulting to the American people.  Highly inflammatory leading questions.  This was beyond their fake news, to the point where one could make the case that they ARE the enemy of the people.  If you want to know where all the divisiveness is coming from, it isn’t the White House, but the liberal press that’s at fault.

Presexual Agreement

Henry's Views

It is common now for the very wealthy to enter into marriages with a prenuptial agreement in order to protect the party who is extremely wealthy from being bilked by a would-be gold digger.  Given the fact that everyone knows how vicious and extremely  expensive divorce can be, prenuptial agreements would appear to be a very rational arrangement.

Today we have the so-called “Me Too Movement” where women who have been victimized by some kind of sexual transgression are coming forward and identifying the man who victimized them.  This is all to the good versus what happened in the old days where the victimized woman would just stay mum for a variety of questionable reasons — she felt she wouldn’t be believed, she didn’t want the blowback, she didn’t want the embarrassment of being victimized, she didn’t want the ordeal of a trial, etc.

But has the pendulum swung too…

Ditch TV

I’m wondering what life would be like without TV — if I just ditched it completely.  The cost of cable TV is outrageous, plus I have to watch all those commercials.   More like being brainwashed by commercials, as they force you to watch the same commercial so many times.  Think about that — you are actually paying them in order for you to watch commercials endlessly.  Crazy.

The number of things I want to watch on TV I can count on one hand — may be not even one hand.  So much of TV is pure nonsense.   In  the 60’s, they called it a wasteland, but it may have actually gone downhill from then.

That would certainly be marching to a different drummer — no TV at all.  I’d probably end up reading more, which is a good thing — and no commercials.

Bread and Circuses

Henry's Views

Two thousand years ago, Juvenal characterized Roman society as needing only two things — bread and circuses.  For bread, there was the grain dole to all Roman citizens, and for circuses, the gladiator in the Coliseum and the chariot race in Circus Maximus (there were four teams to root for, identified by the colors of their jerseys, white, red, green, and blue).  American society isn’t all that different.  For food, we have our food stamps and welfare programs, and for circuses, we have televised professional sports where everyone has a home team to root for.  Has anything really changed?  Juvenal would be right at home in modern America.
