The media manufactured warped world view ended with the world wide web.
Good riddance.

For those unfamiliar with it, ‘Time’ used to be a popular magazine. Its circulation had so declined that it is hard to determine when it ceased publishing. Likely sometime in the 1990s.

It was a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic National Committee, Inc., which owns TV networks ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MS-NBC, and many newspapers, magazines, pollsters and gangsters, but for some reason never successfully penetrated talk radio.

The funny thing is that the
“protesters in the street” only really managed to peaceable dislodge one government, that was in Tunisia. In Egypt, the military essentially pulled a shell game and replaced their man Mubarrak with...well...military rule. In Libya the “street protesters” got a royal arse kicking...until NATO decided to intervene militarily. In the rest of the Arab countries, the “street protests” were either crushed “Syria” or bought off “Saudi Arabia”.

Time just gives the award to the person (or people) who gives it the most stories.

I remember when this was the “Man of the Year” designation by Time Magazine. It was changed to be PC, because talking about a “man” of the year is offensive to women, according to PC ideology.

Their criteria are supposedly who is the biggest newsmaker of the year, for good or for bad. Hitler and Stalin have each been Time’s man of the year. Ayotallah Khomeini in Iran won this in 1979, as he fomented revolution in Iran and the taking of our embassy hostages.

Based on the criteria, I was surprised that Bin Laden didn’t win this in 2001 due to September 11th. Instead they gave the nod to Giuliani for his leadership in the aftermath of 9/11. Perhaps Time was afraid of offending people’s sensibilities by giving what some consider an honor to Bin Laden.

I completely called this. It was teased today on Morning Jackass and my girl asked who it would be. I said, “the OWS morons, because Time is a liberal rag”. I did allow for the possibility of Gabby Giffords, but they’ve pretty much dumped her meme.

Obamaville (Apologies to Jimmy Buffet)

Woke up with a throbbing headache realized I made a huge mistake
Got screamed at by a bum whose pants he was starting to soil
My tent mate has a nose ring, and a broken arm in a sling
Smell those homeless people starting to spoil

Wasting away in Obamaville
All my student loans are now in default
Some people say majoring in sociology is to blame
but I know it’s everyone elses fault

See bankers walking to work I yell treason cause I can’t think or reason
My parents are mad that I have nothing to do
It’s the one percent’s duty and I still want to party
Somebody please listen to the envy and hate that I spew

Wasting away in Obamaville
All my student loans are now in default
Some people say majoring in sociology is to blame
but I know it’s everyone elses fault

Been banging on this drum non-stop, gave the finger to a cop
My hair is ratty, boy I could sure use a comb
Should have studied to be a lawyer
or even an investment banker
Who the heck wants to hire a whining moron

Wasting away in Obamaville
All my student loans are now in default
Some people say majoring in sociology is to blame
but I know it’s everyone elses fault

After living for 4 weeks in a tent that reeks I must proclaim
Being a failure is my own damn fault
