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.

Obama can't do anything until Congress passes something.
Talk top your right whiner Republicans who decided to let the sequester happen.
Obama will need to change his plan to get anything passed by Congress.

Parents should educate their children to avoid alcohol and confirm that responsible adult supervision is present at such parties. If their child comes home once showing signs of alcohol, no more parties.
Frankly, large parties of teenagers in private homes often end up in trouble and should be avoided.
Better your child hates you than your child ends up dead.
Not to mention the liability; a few years ago a boy was beaten to death in the street by party goers, the family was held liable for allowing alcohol to teenagers.
