Geraldo 4

If 74 year old Geraldo, aka Gerry, aka Gerald, Rivera has come to prove anything, it’s that if you’re able to hang around long enough there will always come to be at least a few folks who may actually come to take you as someone who resembles a serious ‘journalist’.  But why it is that any organization that professes itself to be a bona fide ‘news’ organization would continue to allow this fraud anywhere near the premises is beyond me.  He rarely has his facts straight and tends to throw accusations around that have absolutely no basis in truth.

And once again, as recently as this past week, his face was plastered across televisions everywhere as he made the claim that he ‘believes’ manufacturers of “bump stocks” or suppressors should be held accountable for criminal actions of their customers.  Now what this guy thinks he knows about these bump stocks that millions of other Americans didn’t even know existed until this nut used two in Las Vegas is beyond me.  Am I to believe that Gerry is so well versed in weapons that he knew right away what it was?  Somehow I doubt it.

It was in trying to support his claim that Gerry said, “Regardless of your last point that you can do…you can improvise your own bump stock.”  And he said, “I think manufacturers who create devices like bump stocks or silencers or other devices that have no reasonable utilization…other than to be more efficient killing machines…I believe those manufacturers of the bump stocks should be held liable when they are used—-those bump stocks and other similar devices–to inflict damage on others.”  Again he’s doing little more than rambling.

Those who have been watching the nearly 24/7 ‘news’ coverage since this horrific attack that took place in Las Vegas, know that shooter Stephen Paddock had two ‘bump stocks’ in his possession when he was found dead in a Mandalay Bay hotel room after killing 59 people and injuring over 500 at a country music festival.  Of course the real reason behind this never-ending ‘news’ coverage is not to keep us all informed, it’s to keep it all fresh in our mind in order to provide the Democrats with time to advance their anti-gun agenda.

I guess, in a way, it was good to see old Gerry back to using his “from Al Capone’s vault” logic again.  But really, this sort of thing will fly only when it’s ALL manufacturers who are held to the same standards concerning the criminal misuse of their products.  You know, when Ford becomes liable when some drunk in his, or her, F-150 takes out a family of 4 headed home from a family vacation, or Stanley becomes liable for the illegal use of one of their hammers, or Apple is held liable for when a Moslem uses an I phone to detonate a bomb.

And it doesn’t stop there, far from it.  How about the alcoholic beverage industry being held responsible for any injuries, domestic violence/abuse, driving deaths, rapes, etc. which were done or participated in by anyone consuming their product. Or the Rap music industry being held responsible for inciting violence and promoting sexism against women.  Or how about the sugar industry being held responsible for selling and/or promoting a product that causes obesity and diabetes.  So to single out gun manufacturers is really rather pointless.

Gerry is another, on what has become a very long list of many, of those seeking nothing more than to take the easy way out.  When I was kid we didn’t see these mass shootings, of course what we did have was God in our schools and families with two responsible parents who cared.  Gerry is simply showing us his leftist tendencies.  He very rarely makes sense, because like I said, if you applied his failed logic to one company you’d have to apply to all companies.  Perhaps he should think before he speaks and be satisfied to only be thought of as a fool.

But then, what are we really to expect from a guy like him anyway?  Because you see, Gerry does represent a dichotomy of a sort.  You see, Gerry is one of those people essentially without self-definition.  And, dare I say, Gerry is more than just a little predictable, and, more often than not, he doesn’t come across as sounding all that intelligent, although he tries so very hard to do so.  And he’s always willing to sign on with the many other blind followers and/or surrogates, of just about any liberal politician and is never shy about spewing the party line.

The bottom line here is that Gerry is the perfect guy for any leftwing propaganda segment on any one of the many television tabloids, be it MSNBC,CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox or any of the rest.  And so, regardless of just how pathetic, if not absurd or idiotic, he may sound, his remarks do actually serve a purpose.  With his willingness to talk about just about anything, without solid and/or actual facts to back-up his statements, we end up with a ‘clown-effect’ that at times serves as comic relief.  Put more simply, Gerry Rivera is just another charlatan.



I never watch this particular network unless, of course, I happen to be out to dinner at some establishment that likes to refer to itself as being a “sports bar.”  And it’s on those rare occasions that I use it to entertain myself by watching the missing-links in attendance as they sit around the bar or the many tables with their eyes glued to the TV waiting with baited breath for that next bit of truly important sports information.  And I swear, as look around the room very few brain-cells seem to be present.

I mean seriously, no matter what you happen to be watching on this idiotic network it’s more often than what’s there on the television screen some knuckle-dragging Neanderthal in a suit that doesn’t seem to quite fit, doing his best to sound intelligent while making what is essentially a kids game sound complicated.  And sitting next to is some moron whose only claim to fame is that he’s a ‘sportscaster’.  Wow, now there’s a job that requires a rather impressive amount of brain power.  NOT!

The only reason I even bother to bring any of this up is because this past Friday, on Washington, D.C.’s ESPN 980’s “The Tony Kornheiser Show,” the show’s host, Tony Kornheiser, in speaking with Huffington Post editor and supposed political ‘journalist’ Howard Fineman, felt compelled to spout off about something which he very obviously knows absolutely nothing about, that being Tea Party people.  The topic of the conversation was Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)and the Speaker of the House position.

I would assume that the format for such a program would at least be semi-related to sports.  So to veer off into leftist politics would typically seem a little unexpected.  But many of these characters on ESPN today seem to feel the need to interject politics into their conversations.  But more often than not all they end up doing is to prove just how stupid they really are.  And Fineman is another guy not known for being particularly bright and he does nothing more than to spew DNC talking points.

And it was the less than brilliant Mr. Fineman who said that as Speaker, Ryan would be “spending all his time” dealing with “Tea Party people” and that he would have to “fight them and defeat them” or “take away their power.” And then it was the genius Kornheiser who wanted to know if those Tea Party people were like ISIS, trying to “establish a Caliphate.”  Is this guy not a complete moron?  Apparently he’s trying to be more like that other leftwing loser, Keith Olbermann.

The dialogue between these two morons went as follows:

FINEMAN: The House needs a dictatorial leader, or nothing will ever happen. And the Tea Party people understandably don’t like that. If the person in charge is a moderate that doesn’t agree with them politically.

So, Paul Ryan has the kind of conservative chops, where, he can sort of try to unify the whole party. But, he’s going to be spending all his time trying to deal with these Tea Party people.

What he’s probably going to have to do, if in fact he gets in. Is stage some kind of fight with them and defeat them, or take away their power, and go after them. I don’t know if he’s got the guts to do that. I don’t know if he’s got the numbers to do it.

KORNHEISER: Are they like ISIS trying to establish a caliphate here?!

FINEMAN: Yes! Yes! That’s a very good analogy! Without the violence obviously, but yes, they are a rejectionist front. They don’t want to legislate.

You know, if jerkoffs like this Kornheiser guy want to ramble on about stupid sports bullshit, that’s fine, after all this is America.  But what the Hell does this stupid sonofabitch know about Tea Party people?  Obviously nothing more than what he hears from that rather odd assortment of freaks and imbeciles over on MSNBC or CNN.  Typically I wouldn’t waste my time commenting on anything a clown like Kornheiser might say, but this latest comment of his kinda struck a nerve with me.

Quite frankly, I’ve got an extremely low tolerance for stupidity.  And as far as I’m concerned sports announcers and thuggish athletes are about as stupid as they come.  Let’s face it, you could train a monkey to do what Kornheiser does.  And most of today’s athletes had they not been blessed with God given ability would be standing on a corner holding a sign.  And instead of being role models they choose to spend their exorbitant salaries on drugs, strip clubs and numerous very fancy cars.
