Network TV is mostly a vast wasteland, puerile humor like SNL being near the top of the trash heap, exceeded only by the likes of American Idol.
I don't watch a lot of network tv either. Unless the game or race is on there. Of which I wish they would come up with a pay-per-view type deal to get rid of the commercials.

I'm convinced these shows are specifically intended to demean rural Americans. In fact, most reality shows are. I owned a timber falling company for years, I cut down trees, and I gotta tell ya, if any logging show operated like those on TV, they'd have gone broke in a week and be laughed out of the industry.
Galt agrees about the logging shows, which tend to show unsafe practices. The swamp people shows are also at the same level as SNL.

Yes, Lily I’ve… When Pelosi took office Jan. 4, 2007 the National Dept. was (8.6 trillion) at the close of business on Oct. 22, the Dept. stood at (13.67 trillion) an increase of approximately 5 trillion., the $3.22 trillion in new debt accumulated during the record-setting 111th Congress!! Thanks Pelosi you not only created Historic Debt but Failed to Drain the Swamp!!

Galt shows his true Limbaugh self. Making fun of the disabled.
What a pathetic POS.
In the case of Gabby Giffords, those who should be ashamed are those who repeatedly trot out a seriously brain-damaged woman as part of a dog-and-pony show to further their political ends. Giffords' husband should be at the top of that list.

Obama urged the Israeli people to put themselves in the shoes of Palestinians and recognize their “right to self-determination, their right to justice.”

Maybe someone should have raised their hand and asked the president why Arab countries won't even absorb the Palestinians.

Sorry Homer! Not a fan of reality shows, I do watch Cash Cab sometimes if I'm up that late.
Otherwise, all that crap, Housewives of NY, NJ, CA, GA, Kardashians, Bachelor and the whole gambit are not for me

Why are those 55 & older exempt?
To give people time to adjust their retirement plans for the added costs.
The idea that these people are exempt does not change the fact that the Ryan plan is a voucher system that saves money by making retirees pay more.
What is your problem with that, provided that they have ample time to plan?

The current path is not sustainable, unless you are willing to tax your children even more for your medical care.
