I am so sick of American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, and whatever the fuck else mind candy is out there causing cerebral diabetes.
Everyone within 100 miles of me is all warm and runny about some loser named David Cook whose talent is so marginal that the only way he could garner any attention from anybody was to subject himself to layer upon layer of humiliation and hyper-criticism from a drugged-out has-been and an ego-maniacle, narciccistic, aging hipster-wannabe for weeks on end for the sole benefit of a huge corporate profit machine that will chew him up and spit him out like the useless, talentless, leftover pulp that he is.
In over two thousand years, nothing has changed.
Reality TV has the same purpose as the Gladiator contests. Keep people focused on brutal entertainment so they won't revolt against the brutal oppression of their government.
While you were blissfully being enthralled by "American Idol" and "Dancing With The Stars", there was actually a presidential primary election going on.
There is war in Iraq and Afgahnistan.
American soldiers are being killed and wounded every day.
Billions of your tax dollars are being spent overseas while you shop at Dollar General and clip coupons for Price Chopper.
Gas is approaching $4.00 a gallon.
There was a tsunami in Myanmar. Something like 22,00 dead, another 41,000 missing. No big deal.
An earthquake in China. Maybe 51,000 dead.
And you can look at a fellow human being with a straight face and say you think that who wins American Idol is important to you?
Seriously? This matters to you?
