From watching commercials for the fall lineup on new TV shows, it looks like more violence is in the offing. Good, we need more blood, gore, severed body parts, zombies, vampires and exploding cars. Viewers are blood-thirsty. Life has become a video game.
There’s not near enough violence on the news with terrorist attacks, daily shootings, dentists killing lions named Cecil and presidential candidates bad-mouthing each other.
Bullying is bad, except for adolescent-acting adults who want to be president. Violence and doing drugs is acceptable, as long as it’s on TV. Like it or not, it’s the new normal.
The Trump circus has definitely come to town. I enjoy watching Hurricane Donald, but like all storms, he’ll just fizzle out. I just want to see his birth certificate.
Never miss a local story.
They don’t run TV ads for alcohol or tobacco anymore, but viewers are bombarded with stupid drug ads. Yes, Virginia, your TV is now the biggest drug pusher in the country.
TV shows portray taking drugs, shooting people and blowing up cars as family entertainment. No wonder the rest of the world hates us.
