Our beliefs of past no match for stars

November 10, 2013

The pop culture scene in this country has deteriorated to a point that has driven me to a state of revulsion. The timing of this condition is ironically tied to the coming holiday seaso....

Truthteller

Agreed, American. Robin Williams is a frekin' genius. A lot of his stuff is ad lib. And anyone who has ever tried to build anything can't NOT enjoy Home Improvement. Even the re-runs play well. But I like Jon Stewart too. Political humor.

Jon Stewart is funny? In what lame universe would that be? Now Tim Allen is Funny as is Robin Williams but saying Jon Stewart is would be tantamount to saying you tell the truth.

truthteller is ignorant. Making fun of people bad ? huh ? he should listen to rap lyrics. Bush was called stupid. Conservatives are mocked and for what ? pointing out the goofed up lives of the so called stars. Stardom consumes lives, look at how many died of drugs or alcohol abuse. Truthteller uses the word mean spirited. Libs think by using key words, they are smart. Nope its the other way. hey truthteller, obama said you did not build that and you can keep your insurance. Can we mock him for that or is that mean spirited.

You need to look up the word truth H.L., I don't think you grasp the meaning. Now go have some kool-aid with your party cookie. Cult of personality is was got your messiah elected and re-elected. Take away his teleprompter and you see the real person.

And of course like the obedient stalwarts you are, you just applaud away because, and only because, as usual, without objectivity or reason, you agree with the mean-spirited and absurd.

No Mike,the problem is that conservatives think that making childish fun of people is funny. Intelligent people like their humor to be original, creative--not the obvious cliches. (This particular Privetera column is like an Eminem song--it grasps for dull and obvious phrasing). Jon Stewart, Drunk History, Steven Colbert--now, THAT's funny stuff! As for the written word--Mr. Privitera should read someone like Samuel Johnson to get some modeling for satire. You have to twist reality in original ways to be funny. This column doesn't do that. It just takes things Mr. P. is ticked off about and mocks them in the most astoundingly obvious ways.

Habitual Liar, now I understand your problem. You have no sense of humor and only delusions of granduer to keep you company in that vast emptiness you call your mind.

hey truthteller, i quote facts, you quote nothing. Thats how liberals work ! They quote nonsense and think it facts. Another fact for truthteller, almost everything we take for granted was invented by a guy, this from PBS and reference material.You dont seem to know anything. An important incarnation for you ? would that be Wilson, FDR or Obama , Maggie sterilize them Sanger , Ida Tarbell ?. Let us know truthteller, show us all your lack of historical knowledge.nins article just blows you away truthteller, thats how ignorant you are !

Even harmless acronyms cannot escape this paper, but try watching TV with a family member w/o seeing an ad about erectile dysfunction and the warning of it lasting more than 4 hrs ;)

...I wonder if the word "member" will get "caught" by the dutiful webmaster?

Hey truthteller, religion played a huge role in the founding of America. The new world was the city on the hill. A church was one of the firt buildings built in a new town. For the libs it would have been a union hall. The religionists led the fight againt slavery. Thats why libs hate religion now i bet.the brits thought they were the lost ten tribes of israel and that jesus visited the british isles. The libs would have a teacher rep instead. so truth teller, read some american history, the libs have twisted everything you know.

Hey truthteller, what does christianity have to do with nin's article ? Oh please tell us truthteller, cuz what you wrote is false, the govt program that gave us all the stuff we take for granted. You liberals have fallen in love with govt. It was NOT the govt truthteller that gave us all the science and the life we take for granted. It was private enterprise, something the libs hate, cuz they aint smart enough to build anything that works.vegetarians are simple minded too. Any one with a brain can see that a cow, with its large weight, walking around , eating etc just CANNOT be equaled by some lowly non moving plant. Its that simple, but thats thinking again. I love nins articles. He thinks like I do. But thinking rattles the libs. Hey truthteller, here is a fact for you. Due to the enormous science and inventions given to us by private enterprise, people can loaf on the easy life and waste time on the stars like Nin says. Libs can live in fantasy and think, the govt did it .

Nin, sometimes you're funny, but this is just a snarling snit against vegetarians, government (period, all government), people who want to see history in its unvarnished good, bad, and ugly, and anyone who isn't a born-again Christian of your own persuasion. Pray for a more generous spirit.
