Biggest Loser Interrupted

I am so upset with my local NBC station right now. I realize Ted Kennedy's replacement will have a big impact on the future of the nation but if I wanted to watch Ayla Brown sing and listen to political drivel I would tune in to CNN or some other all news all the time broadcast.

I missed a good 15 minutes of the Biggest Loser before they finally cut back to the show and then they cut in again with "Breaking News" before I got to see what the eliminated contestant looked like. What the !@#$%^? I hate when they do sh*t like that. They had the ticker running down at the bottom of the screen showing the results so why did they feel the need to interrupt the scheduled program with "Breaking News?"

I've never had much faith in the political leaders of our country and I don't like to talk politics or push my political views on anyone so I will only say that no matter what side of the political fence you are on, the voters have decided to continue the trend they started with Obama and voted for a change. It looks like Massachusetts will have a Republican in the Senate seat for the first time in nearly half a century. I have never seen anyone other than Ted Kennedy sit in that seat and push the Democrat agenda. Scott Brown may single-handedly be able to block the president's health care legislation and the rest of his agenda. Democrats pushed hard for Martha Coakley to win to be able to thwart Republican filibusters and now they must be scrambling to figure out how to push things through quickly before Brown is able to vote it down. I have a feeling things are going to get even uglier in Washington.

I wish there was a way to run a country without politicians. There has got to be a better way but we haven't found one yet. I'm happy I won't have to watch or listen to negative political campaign commercials every five seconds but I'm not sure how I feel about the health of our nation.

One thing is for sure, the times they are a changin' ...

Back to our regularly scheduled programming.

  1. we need citizen senators again, not politicians.
    Our country has gone off the rails because both the Gop and the dems are arrogant, condescending crap heads.
    We need people who will listen.
    Which is why I always like a good boot in the *ss. That was what the election was, a boot in the *ss. And it couldn't have happened to a nicer gal. lol.
    Sorry you missed the biggest loser.

  3. We're very tornado-sensitive here, and our local stations are forever interrupting program because some cloud has "a hook" in it. That the cloud is 200 miles away doesn't seem to matter. They've interrupted TBL several other times for large stretches of time. I don't mind when there's an imminent threat to the viewing area, but 30 minutes of explaining what this teensy blip on the screen could mean if this or that happens is ludicrous.

    Oh, sorry. I apparently needed to get that out of my system. :)


    Politics drives me crazy and politicians even crazier.

  4. Politics.... grrrr.

    The country is so divided that any winning candidate wins with just a small margin, and then they tout how 'the people have spoken'. Sigh... We need to clean house and make every run again!

  5. That whole political event seems like it could be a disaster. I do like that comment from cmoursler about the crapheads. Funny.
    Our country is the biggest loser.

  6. I wish we could rid ourselves of these self-interest people. There are wonderful and smart people out there who are overlooked because of many different factors. I wish we could all bond and pick people to spearhead personal and national change. Because those friggin' politicians are not doing anything.

  7. cmoursler: Anytime I'm undecided I always vote out the incumbent. It's not the best system but it gets some new blood in there.

    Cammy: They should save "breaking news" only for things that cannot wait. You are welcome to come here anytime and get whatever you want out of your system.

    Lori: It is funny how they think "the people have spoken" 'cause it is only HALF the people. The other half wanted the other person.

    POD: This country has been on a losing streak for a long time. I hope we start winning again in my lifetime. I loved the crapheads comment too.

    All Women Stalker: I'm sure we could pick the best people but they are generally too smart to get into politics.
