TIME magazine rebounds

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed how interesting TIME magazine has become lately?  For the first time in years I find myself buying it off the newsstand at airports even though I subscribe.  The stories are too compelling for me to wait to get home to my own copy.

I confess that I moved to television cable news long ago.  My subscriptions to newspapers and magazines expired.  They were too late with the news, too predictable in their interpretation and just beyond vanilla to the point of bland.  The new TIME has something rare for our age, old fashioned journalism.  It’s coverage of the crisis in Ukraine was actually ahead of television news.  (How can you trust a television reporter who cannot pronounce Sevastopol?)

And there is something new for TIME, raw, beyond-the-stale-boardroom predictable perspectives. I may be wrong about this but as a reader, it appears to me, that after years of trying to cram their version of the world down our throats the gods at TIME have turned their talent loose.

  1. The last word should be “loose.” Most people make the opposite error, using “loose” when it should be “lose.”

    It must be just you, I thought TIME went out of business. At least a TIME reporter doesn’t have to mispronounce any words, they type them.

  2. Eric Cantor the RINO, didn’t just lose — he got manhandled, mangled, destroyed, made to look the fool, annihilated, embarrassed, negated by 55-44% political career ending loss!

    Dave Brat, the Tea Party American Patriot, showed that GOP Elitists are on the way out — and way out of touch of what Real Americans demand — with an astounding 11 point victory!!!

    Another clear message SENT from the American patriotic people to the RNC — embrace ALL Tea Party candidates FULLY, and stop supporting any Neocons IMMEDIATELY — or tarnish the Republican Party for a long time, by placing your self-interests above all else!

    You, the GOP/RNC oligarchs are fossils that will eventually be driven out, but at what cost if you persist hanging-on tooth-and-nail against REAL AMERICAN Tea Party PATRIOTS (that TRULY represent what the Republican Party is all about, while you RINO/DINO RNC apparatchiks have strayed so far away, that there is hardly a difference between you Neocons, and the Dems!) — the cost of ruining our nation (so you can fill a little more of your already filled to the brim pockets)?!

    Save the Republican Party — remove RNC apparatchik Reince Priebus NOW, and endorse all Tea Party candidates ASAP!

    Or else…face the destruction of this party, and our nation if the Dems win again!

    A seven-term congressman with ties to the financial industry, Cantor had spent more than $5 million to head off the challenge from Brat, a political newcomer who teaches at Randolph-Macon College.

    Brat spent only about $122,000, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, and was not seen in the media or national Republican circles as a danger to Cantor.

    Dave Brat’s telling statement: “The reason we won tonight is because Dollars do not vote …you do!”


    [“Eric Cantor’s loss tonight is an apocalyptic moment for the GOP establishment. The grassroots is in revolt and marching,” said Brent Bozell, a veteran conservative activist and founder of the Media Research Center and ForAmerica.]

    1. The Chiefe (@the_chiefe71) — good to see you here again!

      Hope to see more of you as the hour draws near…..!

  3. Here is a controversial topic:

    *Black Cops Kill White 95 year-old WW2 veteran*


    Not a peep from Main Stream Media to be heard nationwide, like the Trayvon Martin hullabaloo that did not stop for months!

    IF YOU ARE BLACK THAT GETS KILLED BY SOMEONE THAT LOOKS WHITE — THE NEWS IS ALL OVER IT, even Obama called Trayvon Martin ‘a son he would be proud of’, regardless that he attacked an Hispanic who would not become a victim, so shot his attacker.

    But if you are White, and 95 year-old WW2 veteran, that presents no danger to ANYONE, getting killed by black cops is Taboo Subject by our PIGS Owned Media…?!

    Where is Obama’s outcry in defense of the life taken away from a 95 year-old WW2 veteran…none heard, because he was White and the cops that killed him were black! Obama, YOU ARE THE BIGGEST RACIST OF THEM ALL — SHAME ON YOU!

    How many CURRENT politicians are against individuals protecting their lives by force of arms when attacked, and how many are for a Police State that takes lives from citizens that do not resist?

    This will make a difference in the 2014 election.

    “Unfortunately what the Japanese military failed to do to Mr. Wrana during the war, the Park Forest Police Department succeeded in doing 70 years later—they killed him”!

  4. *Boehner to sue Obama over misuse of executive orders*

    FINALLY — some gumption! Sounds like great news for all Real Americans!


    1) Will Obama be forced in a court of law to show his real Birth Certificate (to verify his true identity, which is the norm in any lawsuit)?

    2) If found guilty of abusing the office of the presidency, will Obama face jail time?

    3) Is this laying the ground (once we win big in 2014) to start impeachment proceedings against Obama come 2015?


  5. Bye, bye Hillary….

    Hillary Clinton slams Supreme Court (on their 5-4 ruling that an employer can refuse to provide women with contraception on religious grounds), thus showing her true colors once again — a creature that wants to dictate to ALL her dead liberal dogma, no matter who suffers.


    What’s missing from this article is the DEVASTATING RESULT to Obamacare — the US Supreme Court declared VITAL PARTS of IT UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!! This spells the eventual collapse of Obama’s socialist Heath Plan travesty that he wants to dictate to all Americans!

    Note the Ugly Four — the Liberal Judges that wanted to make it legal to kill babies — and make sure they get Impeached/ replaced, never to hold office again!

    HERE is their ugliness: Kagan, Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Breyer!

    1) Kagan (is it a woman, a man, or hermaphrodite…?) —

    2) Ginsburg (after the Wizard of Oz, she’s now a Judge…. where are her flying monkeys…?) —

    3) Sotomayor (What’s that — does it even have a functioning brain…?)

    4) Breyer (where did my brain go… I got no forehead, so where is it…at my other end…?)


    These 4 vile creatures have almost become The LAW of THE Land — all chosen by Liberal American-hating scumbags in power — bent on DESTROYING OUR FREE REPUBLIC and turning US into SUBJECTS BY A DESPOTIC SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT that OBAMA is DOING HIS BEST TO IMPOSE ON US!

    Impeaching Obama will go a long way in Impeaching these Ugly Four!

    American patriots STAND UP — and say: “Impeach”!

    Make it into bumper stickers — IMPEACH

    (one word only — IMPEACH — all Real Americans will know what it means!)

    1. Pics did not take — here are the UGLY 4

      1) Kagan (is it a woman, a man, or hermaphrodite…?) —

      2) Ginsburg (after the Wizard of Oz, she’s now a Judge…. where are her flying monkeys…?) —

      3) Sotomayor (What’s that — does it even have a functioning brain…?) —

      4) Breyer (where did my brain go… I got no forehead, so where is it…at my other end…?) —

      IMPEACH them all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
