HOUSE UN-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE

About 60 years ago, Sen. Joseph McCarthy died at 48 from hepatitis as a result of alcoholism. Backstory: President Harry S. Truman signed an executive order for the screening of all federal and civil service employees to determine  their loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. Hearings, helmed by McCarthy,  followed by blacklisting of a number of celebrity actors and writers. Mo. Sen. Stuart Symington hinted that some of McCarthy’s staff were subversives. Tagged “the red scare,” results of the hearings were then turned over to the attorney general of any who had membership or supported fascist  or communist organizations.  McCarthy was later censured.

    Jerry, it was actually a Gallup poll, you should fact check your sources, you must have read his Tweet and believed it. I am surprised it is that high. CNN’s “New Day” anchors responded to President Donald Trump’s tweet criticizing the network as “fake news” after they announced a new Gallup poll gave the commander in chief a 37 percent approval rating.

    My favorite polling story comes from the efforts of the old True Magazine publishers to determine just who, exactly, their readers are. True Magazine was a macho, gung-ho, man’s man, testosterone-laden publication aimed at men who grunt , so they hired a PR firm. The firm sent out thousands of letters asking “Which of the following magazines do you either subscribe to or read regularly?”, with True Magazine listed among several others. The surveys came back showing only about 2% of the respondents acknowledging they read or subscribe to True. The head-knocker was this: The letters were mailed ONLY to active True subscribers, proving most were too embarrassed to admit they read or subscribed to it.

    In the same vein…”Tell my mother I play piano in a whore house. Don’t tell her I voted for Trump.”

  • KITTY says:

    The stench of Joseph McCarthy still lingers today in the form of Schumer and Pelosi.
