08:47 – Rot in Hell, Fidel. Fidel Castro dead at 90. Too bad you didn’t die 90 years ago. Ah, well. At least Fidel has become a Good Commie.
Barbara is due back sometime this afternoon. She’ll have her car full of stuff, and a Christmas tree riding on top. She’s going to make a quick stop on her way home at one of the many Christmas tree places locally. The Sparta area is a major producer of Christmas trees. We’ve watched trucks loaded with literally thousands of them rolling south on US21, headed for who knows where. I suspect there are other trucks heading to all points of the compass.
I see that Jeff Bezos via the Washington Post is accusing many of the news sites I read regularly of being Russian propaganda mouthpieces who’ve all been doing their best to influence the election. Pot, meet kettle. The WP, along with the NYT, ABC/CBS/NBC/PBS/CNN/FOX and other mainstream media operations have done themselves untold damage over the course of the 2016 campaign. Before that, a significant minority of Americans disliked and mistrusted them. Now, that’s true of probably a majority of Americans. Man or woman, young or old, rich or poor, white or black, religious or not, most Americans now recognize the MSM as a propaganda organ for the progressives. Many of them approve, unfortunately, but the point is that now most understand that there’s no objectivity in the MSM. They’re making themselves increasingly useless to anyone, and among them I most definitely include FoxNews, which is no more conservative than the Democrat party or the GOP. They’re all progs, damn them to hell.
