What's on TV

Have you seen that GoToMyPC commercial with the stupid little kid who talks about his father always having to go into the office? I hate that commercial.

The Anna Nicole Death coverage can stop any second now. I feel very sad for her little baby but enough's enough. I'm not sure if it's comical or tragic that (formerly?) legitimate news channels have spent so much time on this. The comparisons to Marilyn Monroe are also irksome. Not in any universe should a big-breasted, billionaire widow, D-list reality TV star be compared to MM. We need a war or something so they can report on important things. Oh wait...

Now, to get serious. Don't be frightened.

I'm watching a report on teenaged boys who kill homeless people for sport. I'm angry and disgusted, and if the excuses keep up for the boys' behavior, I'm putting my foot through the television. I don't care how bad your childhood was or how much you were neglected or unsupervised. When you reach a certain age you know the difference between right and wrong, period. Badly behaved, spastic, incorrigible teens are not cute. They're little delinquents in the making who choose to be insufferable for effect, at the very least. At their worst, they literally destroy lives. Yes, the parents should be held accountable, too, but ultimately these teens are responsible for their own behavior. Maybe that's why I have no patience for rude children who act as if they're entitled to be disrespectful.

That's why I keep the guns away from the TV.

Glad to see I'm not the only one convinced they'd blow out the TV>

It just gets really annoying. I'm sure there are a lot of people who'd love to blow up their TVs.

I threw one out the window when I lived on Coney. I don't know why I watch the damned thing, just pisses me off usually.

It definitely seems to be getting worse as time goes on.

I got to wonder if there's less real news because there's more government cover up.

I wouldn't doubt that for a second. It's all about redirecting the people's attention. That D.C. trial should have been getting all the news coverage, not the death of some D-list "celebrity." But the powers that be must have loved that distraction.

I once belonged in the whole 'angry at life, unsupervised teenaged boys' category, but I don't see how anyone can really justify killing innocent homeless people as a sport. Hell, I don't see how anyone can say killing is a sport.

As for the rest of the description... I'm not going into that, 'cause I think I fit in those categories too. But, in my defense, I was and still am the only person responsable for my behavior. *shrug*

My issue is with people making excuses for those kids as if murder can be explained away. Pre-meditated murder in some cases.

You're doing exactly what I think should be done. You're owning up to your own behavior and you changed your life with the choices you made.

Well...that'd depend on who you ask. I think it depends on the murder, and the reasons behind it because each case is different. The type of murder you mentioned, for example, isn't really justifiable by any means.

And that's the kind that's got me so disgusted with these kids. Trust me, I thought plenty about murdering a certain person and I don't think it had anything to do with my character.
