Sunday night TV
I think it's 7PM Monday for them right now and 12AM Monday for Me. (3 or 4 AM EST?)
One of our favorite Florida Gardeners/Flower picture taker (Vilmar) has a TV with a busted tuner so I thought I would keep him in tune and sent him this:
Sunday TV update for the tuner deficient;
I started to watch a Discovery Channel show called "The 100 Greatest Americans". I should have known better. It started out like this:
100 George Lucas: OK
99 Carl Sagan: Cool... Better
98 John Edwards: F*** this.... I'm outa here
So I go to this show on FX channel called "Oil Storm". It appears to be a fake documentary about a storm that takes out the oil rigs and supply lines around the Gulf, New Orleans in September 2005, yes...2005. It is playing out like it was 9/11 or last year. Oil prices jump to $75 a barrel, demand nearly doubles because of panic buying, $6.00 a gallon at the pump.
Back to 100 Liberals. (I hate commercials, flip, flip)
81 Frank Sinatra: OK
80 Tom Hanks: ....hmmm... OK
79 Tom Cruise...WTF? Tom Cruise? 100 Greatest AMERICANS? FTS
Back to OIL;
With coaxing from ...guess who? President Bush opens the Strategic Oil Reserves at one million barrels a day.
One of the countries largest Texas refineries has just blown up, accident? Fights and long lines at gas stations.
Saudi Oil starts to flow a little faster. The simulated "OIL Czar just got the ax, He quit.
Budgets are totally tanking. Keeping 350,000 troops in Iraq is too expensive. So we will now cut back or stop completely, Foreign Aid.
Dec. 2005: Big time storm hits Boston. Heating oil is nearly unbuyable. EMTs are treating old folks for frostbite. Homeless jumps from 30,000 to 120,000 due to people losing their home or just can't pay to heat them.
Christmas; Shelves are empty, stores are closed. A Tiny Tim Moment in Church. A huge group huddles in a single home to conserve heat & cooking fuel....
TV: A Saudi Oil Refinery, Guarded by American troops, just blew up. Major casualties expected.
142 Americans dead from the Christmas day attack !
61 Babe Ruth
60 John Glenn
59 Rush Limbaugh (with clips of drugs and Al Frankenstein)
58 Audi Murphy
57 Amelia Earhart
56 Michael Moore .... FTS ...g** dammit!
I think I'll go read.
You aren't missing a thing,
You knew that huh?
What the heck...I'll check again.
35 Alexander Graham Bell
34 Susan B. Anthony
33 Condoleza Rice
32 Arnold Swarzeneeger ?? OK
Did I mention that Katie Courics Matt Lauer is the host with comments from Al Franken?
Back to OIL;
The whole country is in ruins. The economy is toast...but wait!
What luck! The Russians are sending ships with Oil and Aid for the American People!
Can't wait for a new show called "Over There" about our troops and the truth about life at war in Afganistan/Iraq. Wed. July 27, 10PM FX Channel.
I'm sure it will do wonders for recruitment.
