Putting together my Saturday radio show while I watch Grimm…
I don’t know why I watch Grimm… the stories are, well, stupid. The acting is single level at best. The special effects are now getting boring (seeing these descendents of German gremlins and monsters turning into beasts from the neck up, over and over, has stayed roughly the same for twenty weeks.)
I guess Friday nights I need stupid entertainment.
My show is from 11 to 1 tomorrow… I call it “Talk To Me” and have quite a few phone calls, trivia questions and song requests. It’s two hours I really enjoy.
Listen in (89.7 FM) if you get a chance (on line at http://897wshc.org).
If Romney ever told the truth we could all go back to bed…
From Bob Cesca in The Daily Banter:
A couple of months ago in Arizona, Mitt Romney attacked the president on this topic with a whopper lie: “He said he’d cut the deficit in half. He’s doubled it. He’s doubled it.”
Mitt Romney actually said that. Well, no, the president didn’t cut the deficit in half. And he hasn’t doubled it. Obviously. Romney lied again. Actually, the president is on course to erasing the entire deficit by 2017, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The 2017 budget deficit, which will reflect President Obama’s final spending requests (a similar dynamic to Bush’s last deficit of 2009), could end up being zero.
Conversely, the Tax Policy Center reported that the Romney tax plan would explode the deficit by nearly $3 trillion over ten years. And that doesn’t even take into consideration the reversal of the president’s deficit cutting policies like the Affordable Care Act, or another recession, or whatever Romney decides to do in Iran.
Romney is either incapable of telling the truth, or he has no intelligence to evaluate the numbers showing how things really are. Or… he is under the thumb of the not-running Republican managers and Super Pacs that are spending millions to show Obama in a false light.
It’s up to all of us to make sure the REAL TRUTH gets out and that Karl Rove, Ricketts, The Koch Brothers and all their rich buddies are dipped in wax and burned like candles.
Do not, PLEASE, do not just ignore them and let it rest. Even if you are upset with SOME things Obama has done, who do you think is more likely to change over the next four years? Republicans?
Not a chance.

Over at Mellow Moods having coffee after the show…
Not a bad show on WSHC this morning… a lot of song request challenges (and I found all of them) from my regulars and nothing went wrong with the equipment (Ta Dah!).
The weekend looks lovely. After coffee, I’m on my way over to our now up-for-sale town house to get some hardware off the garden fence. Then back home to make up the sleep that I DIDN”T get last night.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
