12 Media Personalities who Shout Instead of Talk

<strong>Ed Schultz</strong><br><br>A lot of people say that his show is unwatchable, but I disagree. However, I will concede that's un-listenable. You could mute his show in a nursing home auditorium and the residents in the back row would plug their ears.
Some television personalities are referred to as talking heads. These are more like shouting heads. You may not recognize all of their names or faces, but I know you’ve heard them. Either on your television set or radio, or on the television set or radio of someone within 800 yards of you.

6 Reasons Conservatives are Hypocrites to NOT Support Ferguson Protests

Conservatives Love The Constitution <br><br> Some conservative pundits assert that the Constitution was written by  their God, one tea party candidate painted a likeness of the Constitution on the side of her campaign bus, and several others state that the president is, "shredding the constitution", when they disagree with his policies. So it stands to reason they take enforcing the laws and freedoms in it very seriously.

<br><br> With that in mind, the First Amendment to the Constitution states: <br><br>
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.". <br><br>  What the Ferguson protestors are doing is exactly what democracy looks like in action as guaranteed by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Inexplicably, a majority of conservatives oppose the protests in Ferguson.<br><br>For a conservative to oppose such activities would be like if someone claimed to be the biggest Shakespeare fan in the world, but then loudly opposed a local theater troupe staging a performance of Hamlet.
It’s unreasonable to expect others to agree with you about everything, all you can reasonably ask for is that the other person is consistent in their beliefs. Baseball is a great example of this. A manager doesn’t expect every ball or strike call by the umpire to go his way, he just wants the umpire... Read more »

7 Most Worthless Questions Heard on Sports News Shows

  <strong>Will They Become a Dynasty? Are They Already a Dynasty?</strong><br><br> This question is asked after every sports championship concludes and is a very effective time waster. My biggest problem (among many) with this is that no one has defined "Dynasty" and most agree that the definition of a dynasty changes between eras. <br><br> I love watching world class athletes compete in sports. What I don't care about is fat sports talk guys who wear khaki pants and black silk shirts with brown sandals, argue about where they feel one team ranks among every other team in history, dating back to 1962.  <br><br>That is VERY far removed from why most people enjoy sports
There is a lot of demand for sports news but there isn’t quite as much demand for sports talk, although it is in copious supply. Every sports fan wants to hear the latest news about their favorite teams, players, rivals, etc.  But what they don’t all need is to listen to four dudes giving their... Read more »

11 Things I Want to see Invented/Made That We Already Have the Technology for

Waiter Call Button at Restaurants <br><br> Airplanes have them for flight attendants, so why don't restaurants have them for waiters? If waiters came only when they were called, wouldn't that be more efficient for everybody?
The title is pretty self-explanatory. All of us come up with ideas for things, “they oughta make”, and this is mine. It’s my first time doing a list like this so some ideas are gonna be more awesome than others, but I’d say they range from “Pretty awesome”, to, “Objectively the best idea possible”.

8 Reasons I was Psyched to see Geraldo's Areolae in his Selfie
I’ve always liked extremely stupid stuff and being psyched about seeing Geraldo’s areolae certainly continues that proud tradition. Don’t get me wrong- I despise things that are stupid. But extremely stupid stuff captivates me like how a tornado enthralls a storm-chaser, it’s destructive and scary but I crave the rush of its nearness. Not the... Read more »

While horse racing fans may vigorously debate who will win the 6th race at Arlington, they rarely entertain un-ending debates about whether Secretariat could have beaten Man o’ War or Citation. They raced in different eras and we just can’t know. It may seem like a sport that lends itself to historical comparisons as the... Read more »
