What Happened to the Winter Olympics

Posted by Troy on 25th February 2018 in Entertainment, Political

You no doubt heard that the ratings for this Olympics was way down.  So, what happened?

1 – Of course, there are a lot of choices for people’s entertainment.  It used to be that the Olympics were pretty much the only thing worth watching on the six channels your TV actually picked up.  Now, there are countless sources of entertainment.

2 – We weren’t doing so hot.  It’s much easier to tune in and watch when you feel like your people are winning, but when you’re losing… meeeeeh…

3 – We don’t have the Cold War anymore.  Let’s be honest, when it was East vs West, it was a substitute for a hot war.  Our passions could really come out because we had to beat those commie bastards!

4 – The coverage was boring.  It really was just God awful.

5 – But I think the real reason the ratings tanked was because the reason people watch the Olympics isn’t to see the finest athletes compete.  It’s to cheer on their country.  It was very unifying.  We could chant USA USA USA!  Over and over.  We felt the sense of pride every time our anthem is played.  But that was downplayed completely.  We had athletes taking pot shots at the President and others in the administration.  We had the media glowing about a murderess outshining our Vice-President.  They sucked all the joy out of it.  It wasn’t fun anymore.  And so people switched channels.

Long Live the Constitution!

Goodbye, Never Trumpers

After watching all the mainstream media fawn over Megyn Kelly for her debate against Newt Gingrich, I feel the need to talk about her and Glenn Beck and their ilk.  These are the people who are supposed to appeal to “conservatives.”  Well, siding with Hillary Clinton does not appeal to conservatives.  Let’s presume that Trump is a roll of the dice.  Fine and dandy…but Hillary is loaded dice.  Every roll will come up with fascism and corruption.

Megyn Kelly is demanding twenty million a year for her ratings which are the worst in Fox News’ prime time lineup.  Everyone turns off Fox after O’Reilly and then tunes back in for Hannity at 10 PM.  Honestly, if I was Fox, I’d cut her loose and let her go be the “conservative” pundit of CNN.  Her brand is destroyed.  The same with Glenn Beck.  Go to his website, and there will be 3 negative stories for Trump to every 1 negative story for Hillary.

Do these people think people are going to return to watching them after this election?  Especially if Hillary wins?  No, their careers are shot.  They have made out that Trump supporters are knuckle-dragging, women-hating, racist Nazis.  Here’s a real good measure for you.  I guarantee you that you know one Trump supporter that you respect, that you think really highly of.  You have known this person for years.  Which is more likely: that you have completely misjudged this person and he’s some sort of horrible person or that the media is trying to bully and brainwash you into believing what they want you to believe?

Fire Megyn Kelly and replace her with Kimberly Guilfoyle.  I promise I will be glued to my TV Monday through Friday at 9 PM.  I promise!

Long Live the Constitution!
