the Dumbing down of America

Why is the media so full of garbage these days? I can't seem to find ANY decent movies to relax and watch without being bombarded with trash. T.V. is no better and don't get me started on music! It's all garbage! What's going on?! Has mainstream American values really decreased this much? It makes me so angry to know that this is what the future generation is being brought up with.

  • Jan 5 2014: Very interesting topic. I have a video that shows the current state of consciousness in American news. If these are the people that tell you what's up, you better starting looking down.

      Jan 5 2014: Interesting about Youtube, When you share a link you can choose to make that link start at any mark in a video.

      Like I did with he one you shared at 3:16 here: http://youtu.be/Ff79iUBe9TY?t=3m16s

      If you go to the "Share" tab in Youtube and scroll down just a little bit, you'll see "Start at" followed by time, choose the time and copy the link address that shows up and you're good to go.

      Just thought that you might find that helpful.
