When I was young, my father called the TV the 'boob tube'. He felt that the programming made us idiots.
He was right.
I loved THE THREE STOOGES.
Later my father railed against the senseless violence on the TV.
"Only will breed violence."
He was right again.
This country is full of violence, but some of it isn't senseless.
It makes us do what 'they want us to do.
In fear of violence.
