So here I am writing my first blog. The thought of which started when I realized there was a whole world of people out there writing their daily thoughts and opinions. So I thought, why be different? What makes other people’s opinions better than mine? Agreed, nothing. So if they can give you their opinion when their wrong, why can’t I give you mine when I’m right? And that’s the reason I’ve decided to write about truths and justices and things that are wrong with the world. There has to be a beacon of light for people somewhere out there.

 

I thought I’d start with something that has been on my mind for a while: Television.
I have a question: What happened to all the good, “Man” shows we used to have? Now I’m hearing the sounds of hundreds (well maybe not hundreds), tens of people, saying, “What do you mean? There are tons of good programs on television at the moment.” Really, there are?

 

Okay, let’s work through a few shall we? Ah, let’s see; There’s Ugly Betty (Ugly girl with too many feelings, and that annoying “let’s freak out about everything” attitude), Grey’s Anatomy (Nurse with too many feelings and man is she confused). Now you’re probably thinking, wait a minute, those are girls programs? Agreed, but then why are so many guys watching them? The only thing happening in the story is that someone loves someone that doesn’t love them or someone hates someone because they think they did something that upsets them but actually they love them as well, they just don’t know it yet, etc. And these seem to be recurring themes in almost all the current big television shows at the moment. Apparently someone decided that it’s not a TV show unless there are emotions and long-winded discussions involved, and my money says that Tom Cruise and Scientology are probably behind it, but that’s just my guess, but a story for another time.
