I'd like to end a positive note and affirm the wisdom of the American people. The latest ABC/Washington Post poll shows that 3/4 of Americans support openly gays in the military across all party lines. This is unprecedented—82% Democrats, 77% Independents and even 64% Republicans support gays in the military. That is a high mark on tolerance and compassion.
Well, the President finally appointed at least the beginning of his blue-ribbon commission on fiscal responsibility and reform, naming Alan Simpson and former chief-of-staff Erskine Bowles from the Clinton days to co-chair it. It's worth holding out hope for this, because Simpson's a good man—always been a renegade on the Republican side—and Bowles was experienced in Washington.
Within a few years, this corporation, which was originally intended for more, wholesome, family entertainment will be dead. Their current catering to the emo, hipster, rich, powder white, racist, bigoted crowd will kill them. Their stock has been down more than not because of this. They are currently trying to be dark, scary, and nasty to compete with the other networks.
