Around 8pm on January 23, 2013, bored, I began channel surfing and stopping on Fox News(they are fair and balanced) as The O’Reilly Factor was on with Dennis Miller (called Miller Time and Dennis sounded like he had one too many Miller Times before the show) Bill and Dennis went over a Gallup poll taken between Sept/Dec 2012 about the happiest countries in the world. After watching the show I now know why Dennis went to Fox News, just like their reporting, he is insulting and terrible! Dennis, with index finger and thump clasped together and up to his mouth, made the sucking sound of someone smoking a joint then said that Columbia was the happiest because they light up Thai-Stick and smoke it all the time, couldn’t be anything else could it Dennis? He and Bill laughed; this what you call comedy? By the way Thai Stick went out of fashion at the end of the Vietnam War and Columbia is best known for cocaine! Anyhow as O’Really and Miller stumble down the list they come to Afghanistan being a happier place than the United States and cannot understand why Afghanistan is ranked above the United States. Dennis says something about coffins parading down Main Street and O’Really laughs in agreement. Wow, well maybe because Bill and Dennis are not in Afghanistan and the people do not have to decipher what is Fair and Balanced, eh? Maybe that is why they are so happy. Apparently neither of these two fine reporters heard about the Legatum Prosperity Index that reported the United States as number 12 and Afghanistan as number 140 for 2012. It is no wonder why some countries don’t like us with these two throwing such fine comments out. Who does the fact-checking, O’Really and Dennis? This may explain a lot and I bet that if they moved to a country other than the United States, American might move quickly up the Happiest Countries ladder; how about giving it a try just for kicks for a few years and then maybe we can truly celebrate Miller Time, eh?
