Comment Re:None of the people I know that Like this Show.. (Score 1) 406

As a long term geek, I cannot stand this show. None of the geeks I know watch it (although that is like a the liberal from Manhattan wondering how Nixon was elected even though none of their friends voted for him). It's just a generic multi camera sit com that plays to the lowest common denominator like shows such as Friends before it.

Personally, I always thought Community was the show that geeks watched.

In the form of Micheal Mann (of the discredited hockey stick) vs Mark Levin. Mann sued Levin (actually both the National Review and Competitive Enterprise Institute that Levin put forth his opinions via) for defamatory statements and fraud due to Levin calling Mann a fraud. Of course Mann put forward in his initial press release about the suit that he was awarded the Nobel peace prize along with Gore...a blatant lie. Levin countersued for $10m and now it's going through the courts. Since Levin is counter suing, all of Mann's work is subject to criticism.

But you also have a entry level wage for teenagers do you not. IIRC, this is about 10-12$/hr.

Additionally, you also have some of the strictest immigration policies in the world. You can afford 17/hr when you don't have to worry about millions of people coming over your southern border who don't have much of an education and skills. (along with the government on your southern border is encouraging them to migrate so they don't have to take care of them).

Don't forget that Hillary was fired by the House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate.

“Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” - Jerry Zeifman, chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee
