To paraphrase George Costanza:
"It isn't a lie if you believe it."
Ahh yes TV.
In leave it to beaver, Andy griffith, even Happy days Lying was a bad thing.
Now in current sitcoms even on the disney channel Lying is a major part of the shows.
We were just talking about this at work last week.
It seems like every fucking kids show episode involves someone sneaking around and doing something they shouldn't be doing, covering their ass on it, and then it's all a big laugh at the end.
Also, most kid shows involve the female characters wooing the males. That's not teaching our young female population to start being whores early on in life AT ALL
You can't even let them watch the fucking DISNEY channel anymore, it's ridiculous.
Nixon's greatest crime: lying to the American people.
Progressives greatest accomplishment: lying to the American people.
See the difference?
Ever since the dept of doublespeak changed lying to misspoke it has lost a lot of its sting..
cases in point. Reagan apologized the the American people for lying to us.
Bush never did apologize.
How many remember Reagan apologizing for lying to us?
Yes. It has. Kids I work with have no shame in lying right to your face. They do it out of entertainment value it seems at times.
When caught, they do not have any shame in what they've done and will go so far as to protest their punishments they've justly earned for it.
I see it all through the K-12. I see it all the time at the apartment complex I live in, with people lying to get into the secure building, lying about their rent being paid, lying they are residents to use the other facilities. Then when caught, they blame the people who caught them of being racists, sexists, assholes, tattletales, pigs... you name it. They are the ones doing wrong.
Then they slink away in delusional righteous indignation, blaming everyone but themselves for their predicament... even if they are being hauled away in the back of a squad.
Realtivist morality. Gotta love it. If it feels good, it IS good. :rollseyes:
Yep! I am really sick and tired of all the lies, TV, Government, News. Having to look for the truth instead of recieving factual information.
It started with the divide and conquer strategy over 40 yrs. ago and has just keept getting worse and worse. Now it's gotten totally out of control.
You have a bit of a obsession with Reagan bashing don't you?
Where's your condemnation for convicted perjurer Bill Clinton?
