You M?@k$*&!!, put out that cigarette, there are children present!

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

The title of today’s post is brought to you by the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) where common sense has gone out the window. Here is a PG-13 warning on a movie we were going to watch. We were stopped cold by this as we’ve never seen it before. Sexual content doesn’t bother us a bit, but the other item, that I dare not even spell out, forced us to return the movie without watching it.


The legal smoking (Oh my, I said the word, hee hee hee. I’m such a deviant) of cigarettes is bad but it’s no problem for kids to watch public service commercials showing how crack is smoked (kind of like an instructional video). Having never done either, that is, in fact, where I learned how people inject heroin and smoke crack. I’ll bet that a movie showing someone smoking pot would not cause a PG-13 rating.

Thomas shows off his U.S. Medal of Honor

Yes, unbeknown to many, I served in three branches of the military. While in the Navy, I received the U.S. Metal of Honor for many acts of kindness shown to small furry animals overseas. It’s true and I’m proud of it. Here’s a shot my mom (yes, she served too) took of me on the battle field of my holding my metal while my brother (yes, he served with me) over my left shoulder covered me. I’m proud to have served my country.

Thankfully the above statement can finally made public and now it’s totally “Legal”. Click here to see news report about lies like the above being legal. For years I’ve been itching to desecrate something that means so much to those who have earned it.

Yes, any moron (much too kind a word), and a little photoshop work (very little as you can see), can make the claim of earning the U.S. Medal of Honor. I’m not suggesting that the government needs to step back into this issue. This is an observation of how society continues it’s march away from the common sense that should have instilled in us already, like, “when playing dodge-ball, try to avoid dislodging your opponent’s face,” and, “don’t trample something others have given their lives to receive you moron”.

Just because it’s legal, that doesn’t make it moral. Morals come from only one source (hint: not inside you, not instinct, not society, not common sense).
