America: The Kardashian Years
American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 1/13/2013 5:40:33 AM

Life in the Time of Low Information Voters I used to love American popular culture. I found it rich, diverse and endlessly amusing. These days, I rarely go to the movies or plays and cannot bear to watch television. Even the radio with its repetitive, uninformative news snippets annoys. Our popular culture has moved from family favorites like Your Show of Shows, The Wonder Years, and I Love Lucy to the minute by minute coverage of celebrities not known for their wit, charm, or beauty,

If the whole Kardashian clan vaporized, the world and our country would be on a path of improvement. I cannot fathom why ANYONE evens gives 2 hoots and a holler for that crowd.

Does anyone remember that it was the Kardashian father who gave refuge to OJ Simpson as he fled the police? It was Kardashian who carried the infamous garment bag which many thought held the bloody clothes or murder weapon.
I think he was divorced 4 times before he died @ age 59. Can we expect a stable family, with this kind of role model?

On the contrary, I date the start of American decline from I Love Lucy.

I date 1962 as the beginning of the end for America. It´s the year that Madalyn Murray O´Hair successfully forced prayer out of public schools.

The K family take up a whole channel, it seems like. I have yet to watch them and change the channel Most of the expensive comcast programs are old as the hills and it would be nice to be able to pick just the ones that you want to watch and discard the rest. I never could stand I Love Lucy.

It has gotten so bad that I can no longer watch a movie with a ´star´ in it. Their very presence takes away from the story.

When television is full of Honey Boo-Boos and Kim Kardashians and The Houswewives of Newark, the pop culture has become a slimy stopped-up toilet bowl. And the race to the absolute bottom is not over yet.

OT: I don´t know where to post this so I´ll stitch it on to this thread and hope Staff will be lenient.

Ms. Lucianne and her staff deserve our highest praise for their untiring work seven days a week, not just weekdays.

There are other sites who are puffed up with their own importance, whose listings are two days late and linger several days after that, who don´t seem to understand that on weekends many people have more time for these online sites than they do during the week.

Ldotters can come here any day and every day and find pages that are fresh, relevant and thought provoking. Thanks!

For me the genesis of today´s societal rot was The President´s Commission on Obscenity and Pornography in 1969. Because they determined that pornography, in any form, was not detrimental we are now surrounded by it. From Gangsta Rap to Jersey Shore to violent video games to Bill Maher to XXX INTERNET. The Kardashians are just a symptom.

People who find the slightest challenge too difficult love to wallow in stupidity, now they have a culture which embraces them instead of shaming them.

I believe the end started when Jack Kennedy and LBJ were elected in 1960 thru voted fraud in Chicago and Landslide LBJ Texas. Democrats drove casino workers to the polls and gave them ten dollar bills and whiskey bottles, how the SEIU union goons in 2012 elected Obama.
Richard Nixon knew about this fraud but he was a gentleman, and he did not want to upset the country, so he said nothing.

The beginning of the end of America was with the implementation of Social Security.
The demise accelerated with Johnson´s great society.
The capstone is the failure of the educational system.

Follywood now represents the real America as it exists.

The Kardashians are actually examples of fulfilling the American dream - unfortunately they´ve found great success for no good reason, they didn´t help anyone, they don´t create anything but their own fame.

The problem really is more us than them.

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

Why Ukraine? Why Now?

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
