Tired of Watching Black and White TV

To watch television on this 28th day of August you would never know that black and white TV went out of vogue some 30 years ago.

[picapp align=”left” wrap=”true” link=”term=glenn+beck&iid=9622555″ src=”http://view3.picapp.com/pictures.photo/image/9622555/beck-addresses-the-crowd/beck-addresses-the-crowd.jpg?size=500&imageId=9622555″ width=”234″ height=”171″ /]

I started my morning watching the BeckFest, as I like to call it … Glenn Beck’s attempt to bring folks back to God and revitalize the nation. So long as you’re not offended by attending a church service on Saturday morning, the event was pretty tame. Yes, one had to wonder about Beck’s audacity to hold a gathering on the anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech. One had to scratch one’s head at the participation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece Alveda, who injected politics into what was surprisingly a very apolitical event. One could even admire … and yes I do say admire … Sarah Palin for not taking any political shots and delivering a heart felt address that touched on mercy shown by the Afghan people toward wounded soldiers. Still, it was disconcerting that in a city that is probably at least 70% African-American, you could only pick out at most a half-dozen dark faces in the crowd. Where were all these black people?

[picapp align=”left” wrap=”true” link=”term=tom+joyner&iid=1225198″ src=”http://view3.picapp.com/pictures.photo/image/1225198/39th-naacp-image-awards/39th-naacp-image-awards.jpg?size=500&imageId=1225198″ width=”234″ height=”356″ /]

Ah, for that you needed to watch the Al Sharpton rally also being held in Washington, D.C. today. I watched five minutes and then turned it off. Why? Because as I turned it on radio host Tom Joyner was speaking and before he relinquished the microphone he said “I love you black people!”. What the hell was that about? Was everyone in that crowd worthy of Tom’s love simply because they were black? The sea of faces contained nary one fair-skinned one. If Glenn Beck had said, “I love you white people” all hell would have broken loose. Now, Beck paid only passing lip service to Muslims and Jews. And the theme of Beck’s gathering was definitely “atheists need not apply”. But Glenn avoided any racial third rails. In fact Ted Nugent, who recently told an audience how happy he was to see so many white people, did not participate today as originally planned.

So I was left today scratching my head. The tone of Beck’s rally was primarily a religious one and Lawdy knows black folk do love their religion. So why didn’t they feel welcome at Beck’s event? And why were there so few whites at Sharpton’s event? Well it certainly didn’t help to have folks like Tom Joyner giving out the love so exclusively.

Gang, in the early days of color TV, the announcer would say “this program is being brought to you in living color.” There’s no way the announcer would have said that about either of the rallies I watched today. Perhaps the racial divide in this country is like a case of national herpes. You can medicate it to minimize the flare-ups but you can’t cure it.

Respectfully,
Rutherford

  1. #1. Good post,I found one thing I’d like to help you out with.
    The population of metro DC is irrelevant. It is irrelevant to anything you see there. It is only relevant to that which people don’t wan’t you to see.Things like poverty,crime,and other unseemly things.
    The Mall in particular has very little to do with the father and son catch moments.So if you’re living in the bricks on the outskirts the last thing you’re likely to do is go “down town” and see what the outsiders are doing.
    #2.
    I am on a Dan free diet. I’ll read your stuff and comment but as soon as he peers in I’m out.I wouldn’t think of suggesting you make a ownership decision,I just want you to know what’s up.
    In closing I’m glad you’ve stayed solid on seeing this as no big deal and that our collective continued race relations issues are more important and lacking attention.

  2. Pretty good post Rutherford – you’ve been more fair and reasonable in your last two – even when wrong headed. 😉

    But like you noted, I did not see Beck’s program tinged with racial dialogue. And let’s face it – on most issues currently facing the nation, whites are far more Conservative than blacks.

    But if I could give a fair assessment, how many whites would really be comfortable at an Al Sharpton convention? We’ve been labeled white devils by the man. The sham of a Rev. has been a provocative race baiter for at least 40 years. He uses people, including blacks to further his own agenda and most of us whites believe Sharpton to be a racist. Sharpton would be one of the last people on earth I would want to be in attendance with and to be honest, I believe he has done far more to hurt blacks than help.

  3. The Rabbit will now put Rutherford’s guests in a coma.

    I have 15 gallons of rocket fuel on my hands here. My mead from three years ago is a disaster. Way too hot, as we say in the business (too much alcohol). I won’t bore you even more with the details, but I know where I messed up.

    Ok, I will tell you anyways.

    I fermented too warm which created whats called fusel alcohols. This shit would not only get you slobbering drunk, you would have the worst hang over you ever had in your life.

    This was a lot of work (including more honey that you probably have ever seen one person possess) down the drain. I suppose literally.

    Mead making is a work in progress that spans years. For it to turn out bad is such a bummer.

    Sucks. All the work i put in this. It would have been perfect. Very clean (no off flavors from bacteria et al) if I just didn’t rush dropping the yeast. But, I was paranoid of nasties taking over, so i rushed it. Errrrrrr!

    I’m taking classes on bee keeping this Fall. By next year, I should have 25 gallons fermenting at a cool 65 degrees with my own honey. Then I will report back in the year 2014 to say how it went, as I know you will be waiting with much anticipation.

  4. This is what happens when you fall asleep in a recliner. You wake up at 2:15 in the morning, bored out of your mind.

    Rabbit, for what I paid for 16oz of honey this week, I think you ought to forgo the booze making and sell the honey (and this was at Walmart).

  5. “R”,

    I don’ t want to make this a racial thing, but I have to make it a racial thing, because there’s another crook caught in the “Black Caucus.”

    This is the kind of crap that infuriates me about most black politicians, and it appears widespread in the Caucus. This is now five or six of them that have been found guilty doing something so unethical, most of us, you included, would resign in disgrace. Not this woman – she claims ignorance. 🙄 Thiis is about as abusive of power as it gets. And I guarantee she will be elected again come November.

    She’s ripping her own off – but she’s a ‘D’ in a predominately black district, so that’s a guaranteed win.

  6. Back to the NY Mosque 600 ft. from Ground Zero. The wonderfully brilliant VDH…

    The problem is that most Americans do not live the lives of a Maureen Dowd, or an Al Gore, or even an assistant city-manager or tenured professor with a solid publicly paid salary and pension and tenure. In the old days it was easier to say the richer were all against progressive agendas, from minimum wages to overtime pay, but that age and those issues are now largely over with.

    Yes, we have left the once contentious arena of achieving a chance for equal opportunity and entered the even more acrimonious, more complex arena of ensuring an equality of result, mandated by high priests exempt from their own religious decrees. Like it or not, the elite world that drives the proclamations of a John Edwards, Al Gore, John Kerry, Mayor Bloomberg, Bill Gates, or George Soros increasingly has little to do with the rest of America — even as it insists that it cares so much for the less fortunate of America that it must be allowed to dictate to others for their own moral salvation and enlightenment — or else.

    So the message of a Mayor Bloomberg is that we all can become as sensitive and non-judgmental as he has magically become; in short, if we are not to live in his own enlightened billionaire Lala land, then at least we are supposed to think and act as if we do.

    But for most Americans, the answer is more or less, “Not this pig.” Read the rest…It’s excellent.

  7. I am on a Dan free diet. I’ll read your stuff and comment but as soon as he peers in I’m out.I wouldn’t think of suggesting you make a ownership decision

    It is, of course, fine that you don’t want to talk with me, but I have to wonder: What do you care that I comment here? Just don’t read me. Why is it the simple act of my offering opinions would drive you away? And Gorilla?

    That just seems strange to me. I mean, it would be one thing if I were rude or abusive towards you, but I haven’t been. I’ve merely been offering opinion with which you disagree, not unlike others. So, you don’t appear to have a problem with people having differences of opinions, so why do you care that I specifically disagree with you?

    That is just hard to figure out.

  8. Alfie, Dan beat me to the punch on this one. I’m also puzzled at you being seemingly thin-skinned when I’ve never known you to be that way. Heck, you tolerated Elric for ages and let’s be honest, no matter how obnoxious you might find Dan (for the record, I don’t find him obnoxious), he is hardly an Elric.

    So I’m puzzled also. As Dan said, if he pisses you off, ignore him. But your opinions here are valued and I do believe you’d have to admit that if you visit here, someone will engage with you which is what it’s all about, isn’t it?

    Anyway, my two cents.

  9. Rabbit adds moonshiner to his lists of identities. A true renaissance man if there ever was one.

    Rabbit, I’ve never watched the series “Breaking Bad” but perhaps you oughta start brewing some crack in that basement of yours. Would make you lotsa money! 😉

  10. Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs.

    The seven dwarfs always left to go to work in the mine early each morning.

    As always, Snow White stayed home doing her domestic chores.

    As lunchtime approached, she would prepare their lunch and carry it to the mine.

    One day as she arrived at the mine with the lunch, she saw that there had been a terrible cave-in.

    Tearfully, and fearing the worst, Snow White began calling out, hoping against hope that the dwarfs had somehow survived.

    “Hello…Hello!” she shouted, “Can anyone hear me? Hello!”

    For a long while, there was no answer. Losing hope, Snow White again shouted, “Hello! Is anyone down there?”

    Just as she was about to give up all hope, she heard a faint voice from deep within the mine, singing;

    “Vote for Barack Obama, vote for Barack Obama….”

    Snow White fell to her knees and prayed, “Oh, thank you, God!
    At least Dopey is still alive.”

  11. Good one…good retort Rutherford.

    But Old Grumpy had the good sense to pick Snow White as his running mate. 🙂

  12. Life’s lessons from Tex from Oklahoma:

    Arizona, Texas , Oklahoma, Colorado , New Mexico , Wyoming , Montana , Utah ,Nebraska, Idaho and the rest of the Wild West are as follows:

    1. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.

    2. Turn your cap right, your head ain’t crooked.

    3. Let’s get this straight: it’s called a ‘gravel road.’ I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you’re gonna get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

    4. They are cattle. That’s why they smell like cattle. They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don’t like it? I-10 & I-40 go east and west, I-17 & I-15 goes north and south. Pick one and go.

    5. So you have a $60,000 car. We’re impressed. We have $250,000 Combines that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

    6. Every person in the Wild West waves. It’s called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

    7. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of geese/pheasants/ducks/doves are comin’ in during a hunt, we WILL shoot it outta your hand. You better hope you don’t have it up to your ear at the time.

    8. Yeah. We eat trout, salmon, deer and elk. You really want sushi and caviar? It’s available at the corner bait shop.

    9. The ‘Opener’ refers to the first day of deer season. It’s a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

    10. We open doors for women. That’s applied to all women, regardless of age.

    11. No, there’s no ‘vegetarian special’ on the menu. Order steak, or you can order the Chef’s Salad and pick off the pound of ham and turkey.

    12. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup! Oh, yeah … We don’t care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff you eat … IT AIN’T REAL CHILI!!

    13. You bring ‘Coke’ into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice. You bring ‘Mary Jane’ into my house, she better be cute and have long hair.

    14. College and High School Football is as important here as the Giants, the Yankees, the Mets, the Lakers and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch.

    15. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don’t hit the water hazards – it spooks the fish.

    16. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump ain’t music, anyway. We don’t want to hear it anymore than we want to see your boxers! Refer back to #1!

  13. And why were there so few whites at Sharpton’s event?

    Because it was never about color, and therefore they didn’t feel the same OUTRAGE!!!!!!!! or need to “Reclaim a [Black Man’s] Dream”

    Because having character means more than being a character (Reverend Al, Twana Brawley is on line two for you).

  14. Saw this and thought of Tex’s joke…

    On the sixth day God turned to Archangel Gabriel and said: “Today I am going to create a land called Canada, it will be a land of outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall majestic mountains full of mountain goats and eagles, beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful with bass and trout, forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs over-looking sandy beaches with an abundance of sea life, and rivers stocked with salmon.”God continued, “I shall make the land rich in oil so as to make the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Canadians, and they shall be known as the most friendly people on the earth.”

    “But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “don’t you think you are being too generous to these Canadians?”

    “Not really,” replied God, “just wait and see the neighbours I am going to give them.”

  15. It’s a joke. I don’t hate America, it is just a joke.

    Is it the case that conservatives can make jokes about the urban poor (boom boxes, drooping pants), and not really MEAN they hate the poor, but liberals can’t joke about Canada/US relations?

    Lighten up, Stanley.

  16. TOP TEN LIST OF HOW YOU KNOW YOUR AMISH TEEN IS IN TROUBLE

    10. Sometimes stays in bed until after 5 am.

    9. In his sock drawer, you find pictures of women without bonnets.

    8. Shows up at barn raisings in full “Kiss” makeup.

    7. When you criticize him, he yells, “Thou sucketh!”

    6. His name is Jebediah, but he goes by “Jeb Daddy.”

    5. Defiantly says, “If I had a radio, I’d listen to rap.”

    4. You come upon his secret stash of colored socks.

    3. Uses slang expression: “Talk to the hand, ’cause the beard ain’t listening.”

    2. Was recently pulled over for “driving under the influence of cottage cheese.”

    1. He’s wearing his big black hat backwards.

  17. What goes “clip clop clip clop clip clop clip clop BANG BANG BANG BANG clip clop clip clop clip clop…?”

    An Amish drive by shooting!

    Yours are good, too. I especially like 10 and 6 – Jeb Daddy!

    Humor is good.

  18. You have just received the Amish virus. Since we have no electricity or computers, you are on the honor system. Please forward this message to everyone in your address book and then delete all files on your hard drive.

  19. – Who was the first liberal Democrat?

    – Christopher Columbus. He left not knowing where he was going, got there not knowing where he was, left not knowing where he’d been and did it all on borrowed money.

    Q: What do you call a Democrat with an IQ of 130?
    A: A foursome

    Q: How many liberals does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    A: None. They do not change light bulbs; they search for the root cause as to why the last one went out…

  20. Q: How many conservatives does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    A: None. Who needs a light blub when you can get all aglow just by thinking about Ronald Reagan?

  21. Ok … time for some tech humor … this is an oldie but goodie.

    On a recent corporate audit of passwords, a company discovered one employee with the password:

    mickydonaldplutoheweylouiedeweyminniegoofysacramento

    When asked why he had chosen such a long password, the employee replied, “Well, I was told my password had to have at least eight characters and one capital.”

  22. Well here’s a new theory that I know at least a couple of you will find appealing. Apparently Glenn Beck has “amended” his assessment of Obama as a racist, and now tells Chris Wallace that Obama adheres to a Christian philosophy different from that of other Americans. He describes Obama’s so called adherence to black liberation theology as God bestowing redemption upon the “collective” vs the individual. Almost sounds like Beck is weaving some shade of Marxism/.socialism into Obama’s religion.

    Dunno, things might have been better off when Obama was just a racist. 🙂

  23. After all the rhetoric that came from idiots like Olgerman and Doughboy Schultz, I’d expect you to be boycotting MSLSD for the gross distortion of fact and out-right lying. How do you justify watching a network like that?

  24. Gorilla,

    I think poor, old Rutherford has been abandoned. I haven’t seen Wally Curator in months, Hippie in weeks, and Graychin who cares? Thank God the bigot finally left.

    I think what really happened is Rutherford is the only one with the balls to hang until November and take the punishment, because the other three know an ass whipping is quickly coming down the pike after just 20 months ago calling Conservativism all but dead and a “regional” party going the way of the Whigs.

    Trust me, some effete pussy like Graychin will spin the ass kicking one day as he simply grew tired of “the food fight” and left the blog. 😆

  25. I know what you mean Tex.

    Hopefully he’ll show up a little later. While I’ve liked his last couple posts, I do long for the more controversial posts to gin up some chatter.

    As long as it doesn’t touch religion, because frankly, I can’t take any more of Dan…

  26. Gorilla,

    And in fairness to Dan the Man, I egg him on. I always kind of chuckle to myself knowing fully well somewhere in the world there’s 5 or 6 Conservatives wanting to say, “Shut up Tex.” 🙂

    I personally hope Graychin stays away. He’s a POS. The rest of them I just like arguing with – Hippie’s a nice enough guy, Curator could sometimes be humorous, etc…

    And all of them are eaten up with the failure of Obama. Makes for great theater.

  27. I’m a rarity among Conservatives: religion ain’t my bag.

    A good chunk of this comes from spending years dealing with religious fanatics, coupled with my own religious views.

    I admire those with faith and who know what they believe, and I work towards those same goals, but I just don’t like the preaching aspect of things.

    Odd I know, but hey, we all have our quirks.

  28. Trust me, some effete pussy like Graychin will spin the ass kicking one day as he simply grew tired of “the food fight” and left the blog. 😆

    Well, while I can’t join your condemnation of Graychin, I must admit that comments like this one keep me going Tex. 🙂 What a let down it was to see ChenZhen fold up his tent, collect his toys, and go home just when the real work started. Curator has been pursuing, I assume, a graduate level degree so he is buried in school work. And I am very surprised by the very short lifespan of Graychin over here. I started subscribing to his blog (at least I think I did) … and I see posts from Dawg but nothing from Gray.

    Well look, this complaint is nothing new. I’ve been bitching on and off for the past three years that virtually no libs come here to give reinforcements. It’s a lonely job trying to eek out some sense from this Obama administration, but someone’s got to do it. 🙂

    Gorilla, as for gross distortion and lying … I am actually amazed at some of the spin I’m seeing post-BeckFest. One blogger called it a demonstration of race-baiting. Now that completely befuddles me. As I said in this piece, Beck studiously avoided racial controversy. On the contrary he marched more brothers and sisters on stage (singing and preaching) than there were in the entire audience. LOL

    I’ll tell you this gentlemen, we live in odd times. When a Christian who “at worst” is probably an atheist is considered a Muslim by a sizable minority of folks, and a talk-radio huckster is the next messenger of God, we do live in very odd times.

  29. Tex, I’m beginning to find an interesting trend here. Among the regulars here, you seem to be alone in being comfortable discussing your faith … or even having any. I think it’s pretty clear that Huck is objective to say the least, and very possibly agnostic or atheist. Gorilla has just stated if I understand him properly that he views religion as private expression and doesn’t get into it publicly. And Rabbit has been very honest with his struggles with faith.

    I think it proves one thing …. the stereotype of conservative bible thumpers is seriously mistaken. You and BiW seem to be the most publicly devout.

    Lesson to liberals: don’t suck religion into political arguments because the correlations simply may not hold.

  30. Even the jokes are American hating.

    Well Tex, interestingly Dan’s joke actually reflects some sentiment in Canada right now. During the BeckFest, one Canadian tweeted that she didn’t like the fascists down here in the US and hoped they stayed put … she closed by suggesting Canada needs a fence. 😀

    Libs, myself included, had a lot of fun on Twitter Saturday morning. The opportunity to be snarky was just overwhelming.

  31. Because it was never about color, and therefore they didn’t feel the same OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!

    Mmmm, I don’t know. BiW I still say it traces back to a mood at the Sharpton crowd that suggested “this is for black people”. It’s that mood that was or should be off-putting to whites.

    Even though it sounds corny when Beck says it (and maybe even insincere) MLK Jr does belong to all of us. To isolate his message as a “black message” is to miss the point entirely.

    I didn’t watch enough of Sharpton’s rally to judge Sharpton. As I said, Tom Joyner pissed me off. When the day comes that I am happier with a Sarah Palin speech than I am with a Tom Joyner speech, the world’s axis has truly tipped a few degrees.

  32. I know quite a few Canadians “R” from my old job. While it is true over on the Quebec side, it’s noticeably lib, it’s not that way everywhere, as indicated by Stephen Harper.

    Like America, Canada is pretty diverse, contrary to popular opinion from America’s Left. I have a few Canadian friends that disdain the Vietnam draft dodging crowd more than Gorilla would.

    You libs may have been snarky about the Beck Lovefest (surprise, surprise), but other than maybe a year’s worth of planning by Obama, as long as he handed out billions in freebies, or a free rock concert for the Leftist mooches, you guys couldn’t come close to gather a crowd like that.

    I could be wrong Rutherford, but I believe the political worm has turned. 😉

  33. I could be wrong Rutherford, but I believe the political worm has turned.

    Well this is the $64,000.00 question isn’t it? I watched MSNBC’s Hardball tonight and for a few moments I wore my Tex Taylor hat and I had to chuckle at how flummoxed Chris Matthews was over the Beck turnout. Even the staunchest lib critics are admitting to 100,000 attendees which is not chicken feed.

    So the question is, was this the equivalent of a free concert on the mall or was this really a social movement? Time will tell. Beck himself seems to be hedging his bets saying that progress will only be made if people change their personal lives. He doesn’t seem to be measuring progress by mass political action … at least not as a consequence of this gathering.

  34. Thing about it is, Beck is right. Republican or Democrat – we need to change our ways, including more personal responsibility, less materialism, a sense of community, a sense of commitment to family, a sense of shame…

    Without making fundamental personal changes, America is in trouble. I’m not convinced America is listening or focused to Beck’s bigger message.

  35. Tex…

    And in fairness to Dan the Man, I egg him on.

    Egg me on? I guess. Insofar as you either ask questions that I answer or misstate my positions, which I correct and expand upon so as to help you understand my actual position.

    But I just call that “conversation.” And why does it bother Mr Gorilla that I touch on religious points in response to YOUR touching on religious points (again, either answering questions or addressing misunderstandings), but not when you do it? Or, is it the case that it bothers him when you speak of religious themes, but since you’re on his “side,” he lets it go?

    I just find this intolerance strange.

    From my point of view, this is just conversation.

    Rutherford…

    So the question is, was this the equivalent of a free concert on the mall or was this really a social movement?

    I think it’s a social movement, but it is an amorphous social movement. As long as they’re decrying Obama and vague and false claims of “socialism,” they’ll rally and be angry together. But start trying to define some actual agenda and I expect they’ll split apart. After all, Glen Beck is not even a Christian to the vast majority of the Religious Right. He can’t really be part of their “club,” right? And which programs are they going to cut? Social Security? That’ll lose a lot of supporters.

    The devil’s in the details and as soon as they start trying to define what specifically they stand for, I expect the “United We Stand” group will fall apart.

    The question to me is: Will the media and citizenry let them run for office (as with Rand Paul) without getting the specifics of their agenda or will they/we try to tie them down?

  36. Mr. Gorilla doesn’t like you, so that doesn’t help your case, but no, Mr. Gorilla doesn’t particularly care for Tex’s comments on religion either. But here is the difference, it is not the center of Tex’s argument and while we all know he is religious, it is not constantly in our, or at least my, face. I typically ignore his religious comments, knowing that I’ll find something of interest later on. Dan, I find nothing of interest from you…

  37. As long as they’re decrying Obama and vague and false claims of “socialism,” they’ll rally and be angry together.

    Angry together? I think you confuse Beck’s Saturday shindig with The Wrong Reverend Sharptongue’s racially motivated gathering.

    The devil’s in the details and as soon as they start trying to define what specifically they stand for, I expect the “United We Stand” group will fall apart.

    Just like those Tea Party kooks devolved into a swirling malestrom of hate, racism, and backbiting.
    Oh, wait. That was just the legacy media’s wishcasting.

  38. Egg me on? I guess. Insofar as you either ask questions that I answer or misstate my positions, which I correct and expand upon so as to help you understand my actual position.

    Delusions of grandeur…don’t flatter yourself Dan.

  39. I don’t know what that means, Tex. You DID ask questions which I answered. You DID make false statements which I corrected. For instance, you said I was a Muslim. I responded by answering that I am a Christian and have been for 37 years. I gave some of the details.

    So my answering your questions and correcting your false assertions are exactly what I did. So, what in the world do you mean by “don’t flatter yourself!”?? That does not make sense in this context. It sounds like you’re answering a point from a whole other conversation than the one we’re having, as far as I can tell.

    It’s as if I had said, “I really like bluegrass, but I’m especially fond of the young new folky-bluegrassy players like Avett Bros,” and you respond, “In your dreams!” That response does not fit the comment made.

    Any chance you’d elaborate and say what you mean by “Delusions of grandeur” in this context?
