All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!



I don't like to see suffering. It doesn't matter if its people or animals, I don't like to see others having a hard time or dealing with difficult circumstances.  I often find it in bad taste when other people mock the difficulties of others.  However, sometimes the humor of a situation is just to acute to avoid.
When President Barack Obama urged Americans under siege from Hurricane Sandy to stay inside and keep watch on for the latest, he left out something pretty important — where to turn if the electricity goes out.
Despite the heightened expectation of widespread power and cable television failures, everyone from the president to local newscasters seem to expect the public to rely entirely on the Internet and their TVs for vital news and instructions.

Oh the irony.  Where should you get your information, the internet.  Unless of course its about the president's birth certificate.  How, should you access the internet when the power is out?  The power wont go out, we have lots of solar powered electricity. Historically that works great in storm situations. Duh.  If we would have closed down all the caol fired power plants this storm never would have happened in the first place.

    I think a lot of those comments were based on the assumption that most people nowadays have smartphones, so the Internet and social media outlets are readily available through their wireless carriers. The risk of cell phone towers going out is lower, because they usually have backup batteries to keep them running a while, with diesel generators to recharge those.

    The ignorance that this doesn't help people without such devices is, of course, inexcusible. But that's probably what was driving those comments.

    And the FCC reported that 25% of the cell sites across the 10 states were inoperational (though it doesn't say how many of those were out before Sandy hit). So even those with smartphones in those affected areas weren't able to use them.

  2. I realy don't know what to think about this stuff. On one hand it could be a simple gaff, on the other, there is a lot of cluelessness in DC.
