Concerning the Mount Rushmore event, just some side notes:
Has anyone noticed the singer who did the National Anthem was fairly challenged to actually meet the notes she was supposed to sing by?
Well, let's just say she had a bad monitoring system to her avail and some tone-engineer is to be blamed.
But now really in earnest: I made the mistake to stream the account put on the YT by the Fox guys. What a GIANT SHAME.
Apparently they had just 1 camera available or what was that about?
They did not show the respective speakers, the military people, the crowds, the flyovers.
Sympathetic though most of us may be to Fox for their good people from Laura and Sean to Tucker, and more of them:
That was plain embarrassing AMATEUR stuff.
An idiot with a point-and-shoot camera could have done better.
That was yesterday evening (in Germany, around midday with you guys.)
Now, one day later, those Fox guys have apparently gone as far as to cut the thing down just to his speech, without all of the beautiful framing of that patriotic extravaganza.
What is THAT about? Who is making the decisions at that Network?
Only later did I realize I should have watched what the WH published from that event, which was fairly decent and professional stuff.
I believe I have never seen the president with such a fine, positive mood. When he first walked onto the stage, with Melania at his side, he looked like a boy in toyland, plain happy, exuberant. Interesting to see such a different aspect of his multi-faceted personality, which makes him even more likable to me.
Facebook has upheld Donald Trump’s suspension but will revisit the decision in six months. (Ridiculous for many reasons including that more coordination for January 6th happened on Facebook than anywhere else...including Parler.)
Curious if you guys are even on Facebook anymore. I see lots of messages from people who have deleted it or just don’t use it. Are there any features that you miss which we should incorporate here on Locals?
A big welcome to all the new folks who joined the community today! (And yes I’ll be signing those cards and mailing them out to you ASAP!)
While we do plenty of politics and culture around here it’s also a lot of pet and food pics. And since we have so many new members today it seems like a good time to start a pet pic thread. Here’s Clyde...now everyone introduce your furry friends!
