This is spooky guys.. When we were house and dog sitting for the youngest we had the G-kids over to use the pool, and as part of a family BBQ.. (no greasy, but came out ok) ..
So the oldest who is 6 and going to school and i are taking a break and watching TV together, as we live so far away its a monthly thing to get together, and i really enjoy seeing her turning into a young lady. What was once a bunch of words that ran together, that i had no chance of understanding is now complete and well structured sentences, and she taps her little knuckles with mine when i say something that makes her laugh...(6 year olds are an easy room) ya know.
Spongebob is now Icarly on nickelodeon.. and I could see the way she was taking it in that she was picking up every word.. So i think ok, lets check this out...its geared for preteen audiences, .. Sure enough they pissed me off... Not 5 min into it.. they make a joke about FOX news.. a bunch of them are sitting around a school cafeteria table (this seems to be a common thread) and someone says something about being fair, and balanced.. so out comes this sarcasm at Fox... with a HUGE laugh track.. sure enough my little one laughs to..
This is geared (yeah i know im repeating myself) at preteens.. and only a way of getting them to think Fox, and the values normally on display at fox are wrong, and to be made fun of..
Pretty sad huh.. I watched the rest of the show, noting how many (near) sexual innuendos, and drug jokes were used.. Later im asking Gloria if we should say something to the daughter, the wife feels that nickelodeon is about as tame as it gets, and they dont have shows tailored for youngsters as we did.. (Mickey mouse, etc) .. I don't know guys, maybe its just geezer time on the MT... but I'm still upset with this...what right does a liberal have influencing a child..
Sorry this isn't up to my normal level of quotable prose.. got to get going, and just wanted to vent.. later to all..
a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
