When LEAVE IT TO BEAVER and FATHER KNOWS BEST were on, women wore pajamas and robes in all the night scenes. Always. Men, too. Now we have young girls prancing around in bras and underwear in TV ads and very heavy women doing aerobics in stretchy tight athletic wear to supposedly sell the athletic wear. As if.
WHAT’s NEXT? NAKED JUNE CLEAVER? Why not?
I like to watch ID, or Investigative Discovery, (24/7 of true murder mysteries…it beats watching the news)…….nearly EVERY young person is on drugs. Yesterday, I saw a really decent, very well dressed older man who happened to be a minister whose son was killed. The son’s pictures showed a young man with piercings, ripped jeans, torn Tshirt and he had been a drug dealer. This family wasn’t in an urban city like Chicago, it lives in the tiniest of backwater towns in Mississippi. Drugs, drugs, drugs, and that’s the new American young person. (Yes, I know plenty who aren’t on drugs but drugs are EVERYWHERE and if there was a little pot during LEAVE IT TO BEAVER or FATHER KNOWS BEST days, that was considered really racy and a really bad thing to do. ) Many of you think marijuana should be legal; Almost the only people I’ve known who smoked a lot of it got very stupid, and I’m talking bright kids who suddenly were “hey, dude’ing’ me all the time. You know what I mean.
WHAT’s NEXT? Walking down the street getting high and our kids so loaded they really will believe math is racist?
Some of the TV shows use shocking language. The other night, Hannity said someone was an “Ass Hole” which blew my mind; I mean it REALLY stunned me! It’s one thing for me to be mad enough to tell a friend in my kitchen that someone is…one, but….on TV? I don’t think TV is the place for it. You can hear “the F word” sometimes……”it’s on cable” is the excuse (as if anybody, including kids, watch networks much anymore?) …
WHAT’s NEXT? Frasier telling Niles “you F-ing A H….what the F did you THINK that patient was going to F’ing tell you?”
You can all write the next paragraphs for this post……different subjects about which you’d ask WHAT’s NEXT? …..How do countries recover from things like this…? How many are in this shape? (almost none)
WHAT IS NEXT?
