Well, Tuesday nights are about to change for me. After last week’s propaganda on NCIS, I quit. I’ve been watching this show for years and the new one, NCIS:LA, from the beginning. There have been a few times that I’ve wondered if those NCIS shows are a vehicle for government propaganda. Now I suspect that I was right.
The new character who is there to replace Ziva, and who seems to be a very interesting character, is from the NSA. You know the NSA. That’s the National Security Agency, the people who are freaking out the whole world with their spying. The new character said to another character, Abby, who had a low opinion of the new lady and her association with such a despicable organization, that at the NSA they don’t just sit around listening to people’s phone calls. She said they have to get a warrant. Yeah, right. A warrant from FISA court where they get pretty much whatever they want.
This may have satisfied Abby, who is only a character on a TV show, but I’m not satisfied. Real people who see this show promote things that are not in the best interest of U.S. citizens and our Constitution won’t like it. Surely, I’m not the only person who has seen this?
By the way, if they are recording your phone calls you will hear some clicks. At least on a land line phone you will. I don’t have a cell so I don’t know about those. If you want to see how it works, try discussing history or chemistry with someone. Talk about things like the Kennedy assassination, the Bay of Pigs, the Cold War, missiles and such things that set off their little roaming bot-like thingys. I’ve had it happen twice.
Yep, Tuesday evenings will be different, and I know I will miss the characters. It’s funny, but when it’s rerun season and I’m not watching, I do miss them. Oh, well. I’d rather not have my entertainment laced with propaganda, thank you. I wonder, in those polls that rate congress as compared to things such as hemorrhoids (congress is rated lower), where the NSA rates?
