The Nightmare of Television.....when is enough, enough
As we check our queue in Netflix to make sure we have a "mom&dad" movie and a "girls" movie, I recall just a few nights ago when my handsome Knight-in-shining-armour declared, "There is nothing but CSI shows on, how many violent, gruesome programs do we need and then there are those unreal "reality" shows on, so there is essentially nothing on for the sensible, intelligent, uncommercialized individual and their families to watch." Whatever happened to "Leave it to Beaver," "My Three Sons", and "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman?"
Ok, now I am wondering, when is enough, enough? When are we parents, those "sensible, intelligent" people, going to stop buying into this and turn off our televisions and declare a change needs to be made and we want it NOW!
Seriously, I need to know what can be done about this horrendous situation we have on our hands. The violent video "games" that parents seem to think is alright as long as they watch it with them.....COME ON, What IS THAT going to do!!!!!! They will see it and it still leave an impression...explained or not!!! NO, IT's NOT OK to allow young minds to watch, play, and listen to violence.....plain and simple!!
Who's with me!!?? I want to roll up my sleeves and get to work to clean up the airwaves, make TV a place where families can gather together again and laugh, with wholesome family-encouraging programing, faith-based programing, just plain slapstick programs.
We could use to save the 13.99/mo we HAVE to spend on Netflix, too.
