Al's Ramblings

The left's complete lack of understanding how poorly their bad behavior will be looked at by "regular Americans" just shows how out of touch they are.

I could write on this for hours, but it is not worth my time. There is no more self important faction in all the land than Broadway. Hamilton is a huge hit, but their numbers are pathetic, they basically cater to wealthy tourists and the Northeastern elites. They sell out most every show...but that's only about 10K tickets a week, at about a $200 "average" price. So, this year, they'll draw about 500K people.

The theater district known as Broadway has about 30 venues, and I'll say they average about 5K each a week, which is probably being friendly. That's 7.8M in attendance for an entire year.

More people watched MacGyver last night on CBS than will see a broadway show in 2016.  About the same amount of people watched The Young and the Restless on POP TV (used to be the TV Guide channel you know) Thursday night as will see Hamilton in 2016...and it was ranked 148th...on cable...for the day.

The only thing the left misjudges more than how immature choices will be judged is their reaction to it. Twitter is full of folks saying they thought it was great they "embarrassed" the VP elect. In reality, it is unknown how much of the monologue Pence heard, because the Secret Service was mortified and hustled him out of the venue, as while a few attendees knew Pence was in the crowd (reports say he was greeted by a mixture of boos and applause when he arrived), most did not, and to bring attention to his position in an enclosed space with limited exits as most of the crowd is getting up and scurrying about was, at best, shortsighted; and probably created a "security situation," as the feds would probably call it.

Of course, math tells you that several players (how's that terminology?) on the stage voted for Trump/Pence, as even though the acting community and Manhattan are overwhelmingly left of center, so are many Trump voters...that's why he won. Only 10% of Manhattan residents voted for Trump, but if the stage had 30, that means 3 were quietly hiding their disgust and trying to fit in, choosing to remain silent due to bullying, peer pressure, and the desire to have a job in entertainment, both today and in the future.

My feeling? Thank goodness they don't get it. This blindness led them to overconfidence, nominating a flawed candidate, and the inability to realize this, which has led to "blaming the public" since.

Nothing solidifies the vote of a hesitantr voter more than having the disrespectful call you names and question your motives...indirectly of course. Most are quietly watching, smiling, and enjoying the misery of those breaking windows and being an attention whore.

With the chilly weather, the protests are all but dead, as if that group wanted to be uncomfortable they'd, you know, get jobs. A few will continue in warmer climates until they get arrested, or their drug dealer quits showing up, or Fuller House season two starts on Netflix.

Whatever strikes me as interesting, and serious Milwaukee Brewers thoughts. If you are a believer in respecting OBP, throwing strikes, and keeping the ball in the park, you may have found the place you've been searching for. I believe in low taxes, small government, and am not afraid to be labeled patriotic. If you are interested in sausage race results, walk up music, or professional wrestling, you may wish to click elsewhere.

I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.--Mad Dog Mattis

I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.--Thomas Sowell
