What is it with you and George living in fantasy tv land? George longs for the Cleavers and you for the Waltons. These were made up people, don't you get that?
To long for what never was is quite futile.
As much as you want to deny it, they are both based on reality. The Waltons most certainly as it's based on an autobiographical account.

Same day, same truth. Entitlement programs have bred a few generations of sluggards and torn the America family apart. Just look at the numbers of unwed mothers and individuals on assistance. Way back families had to depend on eachother and were the better for it.
As for ruining anything for me, no way. I'm responsible for myself and my own security and happiness and everything is very right in my life. I've never taken a hand out. I just work and pay for them like most people. Although the % is shrinking.
But you're not spouting truth, as usual. You are spouting the talking points of your masters which don't resemble real life at all.

We all know how responsible you are, working hard all day to re-tell decades old lies. Running that Fortune 500 company all by yourself must drain any sense of truth from you.

Just so you know where I'm coming from, I neither like the permissive nature championed by these progressives, nor do I like the punitive nature of the evangelicals.
I am sympathetic to the evangelicals, however, because with the stuff they are preaching they aspire to have an internal compass like mine. I don't know if that's possible in this country anymore unless you have a situation like mine where I set my own rules in my little world, and I have the ability to enforce them. I am the judge, jury and executioner.
Out in the real world, there is simply too much noise. I think to have this stuff come naturally to you, in a way that doesn't make you weird ... you almost have to live it like I do. It needs to be pounded in your head while you're young and reinforced by being in this kind of environment all the time.
You almost need the quiet, secluded and laid back pace of Europe or Asia ... or Colorado? to get away from the noise.
All I can do is tell my story and hope others can make the connection.
Nothing like being way out of touch with the real world. Bob, you keep yammering on and on about things that are based on your narrow perceptions.

Evangelicals preach what they preach for one reason and one reason only. They want to instill fear and guilt into the congregation to keep the pews filled and the money plate full.

There's no other motive.

That's funny you say that. All of you pseudo-conservatives try with all of your might to squelch any dissenting view.

The folks on your side, as this thread is aptly titled, can not tell the truth because it would force them to face the hypocrisy and contradictions of their positions.

You are full of it.
Back in the 80s, the Southeast Asian refugees mainly moved to a placed called "Orange County California". California was a red state back then.
In 1986, Reagan granted amnesty to 2 million illegals, and counting when you consider the still ongoing chain immigration.
The hispanics rewarded Reagan by voting less for Bush I than they did for Reagan in 1984.
Even in 2004, Bush II got 40% of the Hispanic vote, being pro-amnesty all the way, which likely cost him Wisconsin and Michigan, at the gain of only New Mexico.
The facts of the matter are that in 1965, Ted Kennedy wrote a bill that was passed into law called the "Immigration Act of 1965" which flooded the country with Third Worlders, despite his claims that it would not.
He lied, and now the Democrats have a permanent majority to be soon cemented with amnesty for 20 million Mexicans, and then milions more Arab/Pakistani/Bengali Muslims.
You need to brush up on your left wing lingo, the GOP now uses fear of Islam to win votes. Of course, they don't really do that, because the super-powerful Grover Norquist, is MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.
You should really lay off the gold spray paint you've been huffing. It's really affected your cognitive abilities.

That's about as meaningful as saying a John Grisham work is "based on reality" or "based on an autobiographical account".

No they're not. It's called fiction. Based upon something doesn't equate it to being reality.

George, there never was the dream world you claim. Just for giggles you should look up "The Northern Liberties" of the Cincinnati area. That was in the 19th and early 20th century, about the time of the Waltons and long before the Cleavers.

I guess you still believe any story that starts "once upon a time"

Let me put it to you this way...My mother was an RN at Boston City Hospital for almost 30 years. She called St. Elsewhere a spot on depiction of the daily accounts of an inner city American hospital.

The funniest thing is watching you lefties tearing down the fact-based depictions of TV drama while believing the tripe you're fed on a daily basis by the MSM regarding your politically correct government and social policy figures.
John-Boy Walton is no more a fiction than Barack Obama. In fact, I'll wager Earl Hamner's lineage is far easier to decipher.

"Spencer's Mountain is a 1963 film written, directed, and produced by Delmer Daves from a novel by Earl Hamner, Jr. The novel and film became the basis for the popular television series The Waltons, which followed in 1972. Differing from both the film and novel, The Waltons watered down many of the adult themes, including alcoholism and infidelity.

Film critic Judith Crist writing in the The New York Herald Tribune said of the film,‘‘sheer prurience and perverted morality’’ adding ‘‘it makes the nudie shows at the Rialto look like Walt Disney productions.’’[2]"

I like watching Law and Order Georgie. The writers often base the storylines upon real-life circumstances.

But I'm not so foolish as to think the things that occur and the way the occur on the show reflect true reality.

Its a novel, based on life, just like Spencer Mountain.

What's funny is watching you pine for the days of yore depicted in a 1970's TV series that romanticized the Depression...without the appurtenant misery, of course, as if it were reality.

Courtroom and police procedurals don't compare to the reality most Americans will ever encounter in life. They're far more prone to drama and dramatic license. Hospitals on the other hand...

And traditional Catholicism is also not a myth. I am living proof and I can show you dozens of families who live the same way.

If you protestants want to live like trash, that's your business. But people from my part of the world never lived that way. Even Billy Joel used to sing about how Catholic girls didn't put out ... at least in the old days.
