2. Right wing media, a devision of the GOP, has something the Know-Nothing party.........

could only dream about.
The transistor.
The transistor craftily combined with other components allows the modern Know-Nothing party to spread their message of hate and fear to the masses with ease.
In the 1850's a snake oil salesman was forced to stand on a wooden box and reach, at best, a limited audience.
If they offended someone in the audience their they might be subjected to counter arguments sometimes in the form of overripe fruit.

Thanks to the transistor modern snake-oil salesmen such as Rush Limbaugh can reach masses of the stupid and violent in their homes or in their cars or even in their places of worship.
Cursing at the TV just doesn't have the same effect as a rotten tomato.

The transistor allows the modern Know-Nothing party to project images of the massive public support of their ideology.
As shown here.


Oh, by no means blame the transistor for these problems. Blame the people who use it to attract people who are stupid and violent in modern times

4. Well, yes but 'valves' were bigger, more cumbersome they got hot.......

they wore out more.
Not that the John Birch Society devision of the GOP did not misuse them to spread their insanity.

Nasty as they were the still had their uses.
What a nice place to plug an electric guitar.......

Good.

It's just easier to spread the shit with a manure spreader rather than a pitch fork.

Sorry to give you reality.

6. The stupid of the Fox News junkie is a new kind of phenomenon.

It says, "I will fight to the death for the rights of some really rich guys to take all my money. I will fight to the death to see that those rich guys never have to pay anything. And I will fight to the death if anyone tells me that is against my best interests. Because Libertee!"

Now, THAT'S stupid!
