Jeez

One look at the news this morning is enough to make you throw up a little. Congress has nothing better to do than bitch about there not being enough sports on TV? A parent group wants to sue Nickelodeon and Kellog's for marketing sugary foods to their kids? The government demands Google turn over proprietary data about what users are searching for?

Ok. First off, not everyone loves fucking sports. Those of us that don't don't want to foot the cost of including sports channels in our programming. If you are selling me a tier of programming called "family programming", I damn sure better not feel like I'm paying for a bunch of football games. If I want those, I'll add the sports tier. How fucking hard is this?

Second, RAISE YOUR OWN FUCKING KIDS. Take all the money and time and resources you're going to put in to suing these people and use it instead to educate your kids and other parents about the products you think are dangerous. When's the last time you saw a five year old in the checkout line with his Safeway club card, a debit card, and forty boxes of Cap'n'Crunch? The parents determine what goes inside the kid. Hold THEM responsible.

Third, you can't just go up to Google and demand they give you their data. Do your own fucking work.

Bleh.

I'm so sick of people wanting to sue companies who sell crappy food. Don't buy it! It's that simple. Educate other people if you like to let them know that McDonald's will make you fat and give you heart problems if you want, but suing the company because you can't control yourself is irritatingly ridiculous. Morally, I don't think these companies should be making unhealthy food either, but if you're too stupid to figure that out for yourself, you deserve to die from heart disease! Jesus!

/end rant

And the Google thing is just retarded.

MSN, Yahoo, and AOL already turned over the goods to the Bushies... Google is the lone holdout. I hope they win.

Of course they did, because they're all in the "buying up every competitor" game, which frequently puts them in need of government approval. They have no choice.

That was me, by the way. I don't know how I ended up logged out.

If they did raise their own kids they'd have to take RESPONSIBILITY
for doing so...and they've been taught by the asswipes in Washington
that it's better to point the finger at someone else and deflect any
kind of accountability. I'm surprised they'd didn't blame one of the Clintons.

And we lost Wilson Pickett...now THAT fuckin' sucks
