I agree. I don't care for "American's Idle" or "Dancing with the Idiots". I saw 3 minutes of Honey Boo Boo and that was enough. I get Gunsmoke and Bonanza on a daily basis on TV Land. On Saturdays on INSP; I get Big Valley, High Chapparel, and The Virginian. My favorite Eastwood movie is "The Outlaw Josie Wales" and I am a glutton for "Dances with Wolves" lol<quoted text>
I scrolled through and found "The Rifleman" on AMC a little bit ago. After that, "The Alamo" is on. I can watch John Wayne any day of the week, hehe. Used to watch The Rifleman with my beloved Dad when I was a kid along with "Combat", "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", "McHales Navy", "Bonanza", etc. So many good shows back then that we used to watch together that I've can't recall them all this morning. I'm only on cup one of Dollar General Java.... Good memories though.
Last night, I was watching the History Channel's synopsis on Presidents. It gave a 30 minute segment on each of the 20th century's Presidents and said that Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, and George W. Bush all used wars abroad to stifle individual freedoms at home and that people would give up freedoms for security. They gave the highest honors to Calvin Coolidge and Lyndon Johnson saying his overbearing personality accomplished more for the Civil Rights movements than what would have been if JFK survived, but then we would never know about that. It did say that Johnson even being from Texas, pushed through that equality included all Americans and he could not have done it without being so overbearing. It said he was an "up in the face" person with Congress and came out of some meetings covered in blood, sweat, and tears.
Off to do chores, may everyone have a good day.
