Alarmism Versus Corporatism

***We're the only industrialized country in the world that doesn't have a policy about this....*** (4 minute mark)

Now I certainly don't agree with the insinuations from that boob. The last thing this overheatd planet needs is more *policies* from Big Government.

Nonetheless the central thesis of that upcoming movie is spot on. The chasm between what we need and what we think we need is far and wide - and it was meticulously dug by junk peddlers.

Morons just need to stop reading newspapers, magazines, and they need to turn off their televisions. Real and profound liberation awaits....

I am so sick of this crap. Why do we need more and more govt regulation to protect us from ourselves. Turn the boob tube off and tell your kids no when they ask for something or better yet, force them to do some chores to earn some money so they buy the things they want themselves. This isn't rocket science people. You know how much tv my daughter watched this weekend? 30 minutes of a sesame street dvd while we prepared dinner last night. She seldom asks for TV because we spend time with her and keep her busy. The next person that declares we need more laws to protect ourselves from ourselves should be beaten within an inch of their lives!

Yeah, the kids are torture late in the day when it's time to cook and whatnot.

Mine NEVER liked Sesame Street for some reason.

While 30 minutes for a weekend doesn't impress....30 minutes a week would.

Mine are probably down to one hour at most per week now. I turned it off a few months ago and they essentially forgot about it.
