Roseanne

I don't think people realize just what a cultural turning point the Roseanne reboot is. A mainstream, unapologetic, conservative sitcom setting records on prime time on a mainstream network, at a time when being a Trump supporter in Hollywood (liberally defined to include all entertainment) is the equivalent of giving up the names of communist actors during McCarthyism. There is no reason for this show to be on the air in any capacity other than as an original web series produced by some third tier startup with funding from a company subsidized by Fox. Nevertheless, the MAGA crowd has an icon on national television. It is said that law follows culture. I wonder if the big entertainment executives are finally starting to see the righting on the wall and realize you can't keep a relevant product afloat for much longer with the openly hostile to anything right-of-left-of-center. We have to support this. The one sector of society that we conservatives have never been able to get our hands on are the culture making institutions that drive liberalism forward in terms of both legitimacy and extremity. If we can capture even a small percent, say 15-20% of the movies, music, tv, sports, and entertainment world and make it safe for conservatives to speak, create, and share their work at the highest level, we could successfully contain the liberal, cultural-Marxist menace. For that to happen, we need genuinely talented actors, singers, directors, show runners, creators, musicians, and athletes of all varieties, and the ability to organize them to promote films and messages that show visual representations of what heros and happy endings look like from a conservative perspective. Right now, this sector of society is dominated almost exclusively by the left. There is an audience out there who appreciates mainstream, pop culture media whose members also identify as conservative. The audience is there, but nobody has been able to reach them. Does Roseanne show us the way?

Facebook

I have a question for those of you who have Facebook.

I do not have it, and never did. However, it looks like I am going to end up having to get one because my future classmates are starting a group for us.

Is there a way that you can have it set up so that other people cannot see who your friends are, or what groups you are part of?

For example, if my mom is one of my friends on Facebook, but I don't want her to see that I am friends with a bunch of porn stars or am a member of the group "Legalize It!"?

Good Judge

A California judicial official makes a proper ruling and demonstrates an understanding of the constitution and basic principles of liberty. Hell must have frozen over.

College football

What a Rose Bowl! Look at Georgia under Kirby Smart and Miami under Mark Richt and you'll understand why we had to pull the plug on the later to get the former, and why it paid off.

Up next is Bama in an all SEC title game.

GO DAWGS!

Cold Outside

Nice chilly morning after Christmas. Was Santa good to everyone?

Remote Start

Early Christmas present to myself this year was getting a remote start installed on my vehicle. It was money well spent. While everyone else is out in the parking lot with their ice scrapers, I just stand in a window on the 5th floor and press a button and then wait for the ice to melt and then go get in my nice warm car.
Two Kraft instant mac 'n cheese with additional slices of american cheese mixed in with what is in the pot, and then some chicken of the sea cannned tuna thrown in to make a very ghetto tuna cassarole right in my own microwave. Downed with a Sprite Zero. #nurselife

Had a patient last night who speaks Basque. That's something you just don't see too often 'round these parts.
