When Is History Not History?

So begins the first full weekend in a new year…..and it is colder than a well diggers ass in Idaho…..I will hunker down drink coffee and make home-made corn chowder (grandma’s recipe) and enjoy the time AFK (away from keyboard)……

My only post today will be about my fave subject….HISTORY.

All that know me know that I am history buff…..and for my readers a bit of a pain in the butt with all my historical perspectives……(tee hee).  For sometime I have been bitching about the History Channel that airs very little history.  Most Hitler stuff….I think most everyone knows what a dick he was and since we are in the middle of the 100 year anniversary of World War One it would make good sense to air some shows about that horrible war….inform the public that the world we know today started with that war.

But NO!  We have new series on….you guessed….Adolf Hitler.

But instead they air shows about modern day dumpster divers, assholes that cut down old growth trees, trucks driving in Canada and other such “historic” happenings.

And then there is the Military Channel that was re-named the American Heroes Channel (AHC)…but yet they air shows about gangsters, outlaws, gunslingers, family feuds and the rest of the total bullshit from our history…..and even some….you guessed it….Hitler.  Not a hero in the bunch.

Okay I have rattled on a bit much…the reason I am posting this is because it seems that a GOPer whom I have had NOTHING nice to say about agrees with my bitching about the History Channel…..

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) railed against the History Channel’s original programming, on Thursday, suggesting “if you don’t like history” you should watch one of the channel’s top rated shows, “Pawn Stars.”

Go figure the old professor agreeing with someone in the GOP….a miracle of miracles…..(that should be historic)

Reality bullshit has invaded history….Hell reality bullshit has invade all aspects of life……how sad for this society and the world.

Stay warm and have a good Saturday…..Peace out my friends.
