I wouldn’t be so pissed about KFI AM morning drive host William Wolf Handel calling Florida Congresswoman Fredrica Wilson a “cheap sleazy Democratic whore”, had he specified that she is a “cheap sleazy Democratic POLITICAL whore “.
I don’t know if even that is true, but at least we could hide behind the obviously bad joke by saying that It was political satire. As much as I dislike equivalency arguments, I can’t help but wonder if he would have gone in on Senator Diane Feinstein with such venom.
One would think that in the middle of this Cosby, O’Reilly, Weinstein faux pas, a dude with his experience would have sense enough to mind his tone in public, especially while seated in front of a top rated blowtorch of a radio microphone, but in light of the glaring silence, I suppose that he correctly calculated that there would be no outcry in support of a mere black female.
Not only does Handel hold the top rated show in the market but he was recently inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame, and he’s a solid veteran. I have even talked to him on his weekend “Handel on The Law Show.” I actually like(d) the guy, but I’m sure that he would tell me that we all have to watch our own back.
His boss, Robin Bertolucci seems to be a solid program director who always seems to spot the best talent and put them in the right time slot. Handel is making them some serious money, so she has put him in social media jail for a few days suspension, and apparently plans to sneak him back into the lineup if the outcry dies down. Unlike Don Imus, who was banished from his TV show for calling a group of sisters “nappy headed Hos”, and John and Ken who disappeared from a sweet ratings bonanza when John told Terri-Rae Elmer that she had “a nice set”, it looks like a man can call a woman anything he choses if the price is right. Loose lips have been known to sink ships, careers and ratings.
Congresswoman Wilson is just a black woman, described as whacky by her own commander in chief, so who cares – I guess. iHeart radio distributes the Handel show and the station, so maybe FM radio star Big Boy should take a knee for the congresswoman, and raise a stink on his morning drive hip hop show @ KRRL. Station KRRL is also a nationally distributed iHeart Radio station, and Big Boy is a regular guest on Julie Chen’s CBS daytime TV show, “The Talk”. Maybe they should talk about Handel’s attack on a woman congressional leader.
Well, its happened again.
Another example of mass murder, opening up the jaw jacking about gun control. In a few days we will have our few more moments of silence and the church will say Amen. We can go back to talking about North Korea, the Russians, and the evil Colin Kaepernick.
We are unlikely to ever stop terrorism unless we kill them all. The same can be said about 2nd amendment fanatics. We will have to learn to live with them unless we can remove their incentive to bother us. In both cases the shooters are looking for acceptance, and a way out that in their narrow little minds will make them famous. Martyrdom is what the terrorists call it. Here in America, we like to call it suicide by cop, gang activity or mental disturbance. It all comes down to martyrdom. The damn fool wants to go out in a blaze of glory, and we oblige the damn fool, splashing his name and picture all over the 24 hour news cycle. The celebrity only serves to create the next damn foo, and incentivize his murderous rampage.
How can we remove the incentive? Step 1. When we catch the damn fool, throw away their ID and never mention their damn fool name in the news, so there will be no fame, no glory.
Step 2. Let his family file missing person reports and worry about the damn fool for the rest of their miserable lives. They deserve to suffer at least as much as their relative’s victims. They should have raised him better.
Step 3. Wrap the body in bacon, if they are Muslim (they can’t get into heaven wrapped in pork). Sources say that Israelis hang packages of pork inside public transportation. Apparently martyrs can’t or won’t blow themselves up in the presence of the pork, because it will mix with their remains in the explosion and taint their chances to evolve to paradise. No virgins for this damn fool.
Here Comes The Flim Flam Man.
Coming for your votes any way he can. “Massive tax cuts”. “Responsible tax cuts”. “Read my lips, no new taxes…”
We’ve heard them, had them, and read them time and time again. Each time the GOP manages to elect another chief executive, the main plank of his agenda is always the promise of generous tax cuts that will save the day.
We always get the cuts and once the fat cats use their cash to buy some personal watercrafts, and some new automation for their factories, the lay-offs come down and the tax rates go back up to recoup the loss revenue. They always claim to be in favor of tax cuts and against government assistance for non tax payers, but any non-biased accountant will tell you that a tax cut is government assistance for tax payers. Any honest assessment of every tax cut that we have seen since Ronald Reagan has been at best a temporary windfall that stimulates the economy just long enough to engage in prominent double talk during the next mid-term election. Then quietly a more sobering tone sweeps their consciousness and they are forced to ease the taxes back up, under the weight of the sinking ship. We all know it, but it works every time that it is tried and then it fails every time that it works.
George W. Bush at least came up with a novel idea. His administration devised an innovative variation on the same old theme. They promised tax cuts, and delivered them in the form of a $300. instant payout to every man woman and rent paying recipient of their voter bribery scheme. There were smiles galore. An instant tax cut, that seemingly returned your own money to you with no questions asked, no Form 1040, no schedule C, and with no accounting fees required. The check simply arrived in your mailbox for you to pleasure yourself and your family, while stimulating the economy. But who knew that the windfall was deep undercover, and while wearing it’s sheep’s clothing well, it turned out to be a drooling and snarling wolf that bit you on the ass the very next year. That’s when your accountant got the news that the $300 would have to be considered as part of last year’s INCOME, and declared as such on next year’s 1040.
Sucker. It was slight of hand like all others. The truth was on the table, but by the time the Flim Flam man finished moving it around under his shells – your tax cut evaporated and you would have to wait another 4 – maybe 8 years for the game to seem new again. That’s when it will be delivered by the new GOP shyster.
The Trump 3 ring circus has thrilled and entertained us all for the past 9 months, and now its time to get down to some serious pocket picking. Let the games begin.
DACA is a defacto TREATY. These people came out of the shadows and turned themselves in with an understanding that the U.S.A. would not break its promise.
Why should anybody trust us ever again. The world is watching and our word ain’t shit.
But this is no suprise. This is how he runs his business. He welches on deals, files bankruptcy, and filibusters court cases with delays.
The indigenous people called it “speak with forked tongue.” I call it lying.
Mr. Trump views everything through his prism of negotiation. He believes that he is good at it, even though he only negotiates with others who believe that, and when they offer something that opposes his goal, he just stops negotiating and out waits them in court.
DACA is to him part of his worldwide chess game. The kids, the so called dreamers are our pawns. He is attacking them in order to force us to give him “something” that he wants in return. Because he is small minded, and single purposed, what he probably wants is for Mueller to stop leaning on his boy, and stop looking at his finances. Meanwhile the once great United States of America is becoming a banana republic.
