Tube flag burning


Well reality TV at its dumbest was the first presidential debate. Tubularsock didn’t capitalize presidential because it would deem it with respect. Fuck That (capitalized).

Tubularsock usually can’t stand to watch trivia-shows and doesn’t have a TV BUT a very good friend came to Tubularsock’s Bunker (see Bunker Tour if you are new to Tubularsock) and begged Tubularsock to tape this crap so it could be seen by my friend later in the evening after work.

Well Tubularsock, all heart as well as brains, had to quickly rig up a system to pull off that task. Looking more like a NSA setup for spying rather than recording this “debate”, a misnomer if there ever was one, Tubularsock set up a microphone and placed it in front of his very large speakers and used his tuner to tune into the radio broadcast from NPR.

Then connected the microphone to the computer and opened GarageBand (a Mac app) and recorded the program’s sound.

Then found a “live stream” of the “debate” from the Washington Post and turned off the sound so as to only view the picture which due to a slow internet connection during “high-peak” usage spent more time with a “spinning wheel” than picture. The delay time ran about four to seven minutes which was funny because as the goofballs started to speak on NPR the Washington Post stream pictured only two empty podiums. WHICH TO TUBULARSOCK WAS THE ONLY SIGN OF TRUTH FOR THE NEXT NINETY MINUTES!

Now Tubularsock know you techies will have questions about this set up but don’t ask. A. It’s not important and B. The reason for this round about way was the only option under NSA guidelines.

So the major question Tubularsock has after this imbecilic-travesty-on-truth that was presented as a “debate” is:


And even worse ……… are the messed-up-media-spinners and the opinionated brain dead American public THAT STUPID?????????


It is really beyond rational comprehension. These two political-clowns represent “LEADERSHIP” to the American populous? Really?

You know that old well used statement of Albert Einstein comes into play once again,


That being said ……….. the fanatic-fanciful-fantasy  continues.

    Meanwhile the financial world is about to collapse with the Deutsche Bank dragging down all the major banks in the world with their derivatives shenanigans. This is a repeat of 2008 only worse. I think they hope we won’t notice – we’ll be too busy watching the debates between Tweddle Dee and Tweddle Dum.

  2. Tubularsock, This stupid shit reminds me of a fever-induced nightmare, so in the back of my mind I somehow keep expecting to wake up … chunk down a few aspirin and a quart of orange juice … then crawl back under the blankets until I feel better, or die, whichever comes first. And when/if I recover, things will be back to, ahem, normal. If it isn’t that, then just let me die, preferably before I have to face the NEXT FOUR YEARS!
    What fascinating, high-tech recording details, I would never have thought of that! Silly me, I was just going to wait and skim a transcript … if I could stand to … when someone posts it — I’ve been to junior high school pep rallies and student council campaigns before, and doubt this was much improvement. After your pithy commentary, I won’t bother, so many thanks! – Linda

      Linda, I have passed this laying in bed stage, now I just pray for death, the final pardon, to get me the hell out of this cesspool hell-hole!

      Yes, I know there is suicide, but unfortunately I am still too cowardly! God I hate my cowardice! But then again, I don’t know how much longer I can go on wanting to strangle these assholes with my bare hands and not being able to satisfy that urge!

      My only hope is that one of these two low-lifes will piss Putin off enough to nuke the shit out of us. And then I’ll find a ground zero somewhere and wait joyously for my ultimate deliverance!

      Other than that, life’s a fucking blast!

      • Sojourner,I know … though it also pisses me off knowing our elites would just as soon have us dead, since we’re no longer willing to work for nothing and thank them for letting us. Or are we, it’s hard to tell these days. Besides, aren’t we all even a little curious to see what these assholes think they’re gonna do when they’ve totally trashed the planet? They gonna sail off to the next galaxy? May be, they don’t seem too worried.
        So don’t rush off just as times are getting really interesting! Time enough for all that.

    Linda, Linda, Linda ……. Dr. Tube would recommend Wild Turkey instead of orange juice just for the extra vitamin CCC. And then put on your dancing shoes and join a party. We only have one party anyway.

    See how easy it all is now?

    If Tubularsock is anything he’s “pithy”!

    And then we have sojourner wanting to blow us all up …… hold your horses and pour the Turkey! Doubles all around …….. neat!

    Now are we all in the middle of our party mood guys?

    Now light up a “fatty” and smoke till you’re spaced ……….

    Is there anybody in there?
    Just nod if you can hear me.
    Is there anyone at home?

    Come on now
    I hear you’re feeling down
    Well, I can ease your pain
    And get you on your feet again

    I’ll need some information first
    Just the basic facts
    Can you show me where it hurts?

    There is no pain, you are receding
    A distant ship smoke on the horizon
    You are only coming through in waves
    Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
    When I was a child I had a fever
    My hands felt just like two balloons
    Now I’ve got that feeling once again
    I can’t explain, you would not understand
    This is not how I am
    I have become comfortably numb . . .” Pink Floyd

      Down to the Ground!”


      Buy me a case of WT, Tube, you hobnobber with the stars, and then I might get “comfortably numb” for once

      And Linda, no sweat! Like I said, I am still too cowardly.

  4. I last watched a presidential debate in 1960. Doesn’t sound like I’m missing much.
