y'all are right. What right do parents have to choose how to raise their children? That's public television's job. The media gets to choose how to
raise our children today, we have no say, what are we?
You know, there was a time when married couples on TV had to sleep in seporate beds. Now you can say # on television. You see, it starts out small,
and continues to build up.
Let's change this up a little. Let's say it becomes sanctioned to perform torture by the government, legally, for extreme cases, like terrorists or
kidnappers where the person kidnapped hasn't been found yet. Massive public outcry like there was when it was allowed to say damn on TV. But people
get used to it.
As soon as they get used to it, it's another stipulation is added. Now people suspected of murder can be tortured to find out what they did with
their victims. Now you can say ass on TV.
Well, hell, this has been working so well! We've been finding all of these kidnapping victims, terrorists, and dead bodies! Our TV ratings have never
been higher! Let's expand this more!
And the cycle continues. Pretty soon, your 5 year old daughter will be watching Springer when you throw in another load of laundry, and she'll be
seeing some guy # a girl on camera. It'll get ratings, so it'll be legalized, unless we stop it somewhere. It could get to the point that you go to
watch the news, and the commentator will be saying "And those #ing terriors, I tell ya, they just keep #ting on peoples lawns". You won't be able
to watch TV with your children in the house, and will have to lock it out from them.
We are in the midst of a downward spiral. It needs to stop somewhere, or TV will dictate how we raise our kids, not ourselves.
