F-Bombs Away


F bombs

If you were watching the opening statements today at the George Zimmerman trial, you heard the prosecutor's opening statement quoting the defendant,"F---ing punks. These assholes always get away."  That, in case you didn't know were Zimmerman's words.  This was followed immediately with another use of the "F" word.

Immediately MSNBC broke away to an apology by self-important Chuck Todd for their not bleeping out the two uses of profanity.  Really?  In this day and age?

It used to be you couldn't show a married couple on TV sleeping in the same bed, they needed separate beds. We couldn't say the word, "ass" unless it was preceded with the word "jack." Then there was the word "Hell." It used to be bleeped out during a movie, but the announcer was okay with saying, "Stayed tuned for more of  ' To Hell And Back' after these messages." Softening standards led to not if you could say "hell" but how many times in a show.

"Bitch" and "bastard" were verboten as well.  And God forbid, you said "shit."  And let's not forget Janet Jackson's "nipplegate" scandal.  It was so bogus that the FCC even dropped it's fine on the network because it was stupid. Face it, profanity and nudity are part of life.  And now they're commonplace on TV. Remember the outrage when they showed Dennis Franz's naked backside on NYPD Blues?  Now anything less that full frontal nudity is allowed.

Isn't it time we got over the phony outrage?  This is news coverage.  As a news event, why are we facing censorship?  Don't we have a right to know without an arbitrary censor deciding what crosses the line?  News should be truth.  No one's harmed by the utterance of these words.  Let's stop kidding ourselves that children hearing these words will be corrupted. You don't think they hear this every day at school?  Stop making an issue out of it and maybe they wouldn't use those words and phrases as much.

A simple admonishment to your child that this isn't acceptable conduct or vocabulary for them is sufficient. I raised two kids and I'm sure when I stubbed a toe or hammered my thumb, they heard plenty, but vituperative speech was never a problem.

So TV networks, it's time you get over it?  It's 2013.  A comic the other night gave the definition of a "virgin as the ugliest girl in fourth grade." Maybe if we left Puritanism behind and explained things earlier to kids, we wouldn't have half the problems we have right now. Instead of $30 Billion for addition and unneeded border security, why not education? Innocent people will die with border patrol. Lives will be saved with education. Put some priorities on things.

The F-bomb was dropped a few times... When are we going to stop the phony outrage?

The bigger crime MSNBC and Fox News and the other outlets propagate is their giving coverage to stories by extremist that they know are lying. Now that's real pornography.


Oh f***! Parents group wants FCC to crack down on CBS over Flacco's F-bomb after Super Bowl win


lalala I can't hear you hands over ears 2

NippleGate, aka Janet Jackson's infamous Superbowl "wardrobe malfunction," caused a huge uproar, an abundance of hand wringing, passing out on fainting couches, a surge in smelling salts and hand-fan sales, and outrage-- outrage!-- over such tawdritude being aired on the Tee Vee Machine.

Oh, and let's not forget the upswing in lawyer employment. The Hill:

CBS has been involved in years of legal battles after it aired a split-second view of singer Janet Jackson's partially exposed breast following a "wardrobe malfunction" during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show.

Which brings us to yesterday's Superbowl win by the Baltimore Ravens. As I watched and heard Flacco's spontaneous Moment of Sheer Ecstasy, I turned to Mr. Laffy, he turned to me, and we both cracked up and said something like, "Uh oh. They just caught him saying f**k on live television, right?" Right:

Immediately after the game ended, an exuberant Joe Flacco, the Baltimore Ravens's quarterback, could be heard saying "f---ing awesome" to one of his teammates.

Well THAT didn't sit well with the Parents Television Council at ALL. Harrumph! They are boiling mad! How DARE a deliriously happy Superbowl hero not think before he spoke? How DARE CBS let an impromptu expletive change the lives-- forever-- of thousands-- no, MILLIONS-- of unsuspecting children?! How DARE that momentary blur of a word make its way into our living rooms?! Time to for action! Again.

Of course, allowing our kids to watch and/or partake in the violent game of football, that's fine and dandy. All those resulting brain injuries, they're perfectly acceptable. Just as long as children aren't exposed to *gasp!* a word.

But too late now. They've been corrupted. Clearly, kiddies everywhere will turn to lives of prostitution and icky video game-playing, of drugs and rock and roll, and worst of all, of instantly morphing into -- dun-dun-dun-n!-- liberals!

Yet this is hunky dory:

John Boehner to Harry Reid: "Go F--- Yourself"


here we still are 2013

Hey kids! Remember this?

Those were the good old days, weren't they? When a vice president swore in the worst and most insulting way using the worst and most insulting word right there on the Senate floor! Aimed directly at a Democratic U.S. Senator. Wowzers, glad that never happened again!

I spoke too soon.

Via Politico has a thing or two to say about why the Do Nothing Congress is in the insane state of incivility and gridlock they're clearly in:

House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday.

It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?

Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.

The Party of Family Values strikes again.

Quickie: How to get Chris Matthews to say "F*** you!"


Today's Quickie comes courtesy of  Forbes' Jeff Bercovici:

How to get Tweety to drop the F bomb:

The “Hardball” host does all his own writing, and he resents the idea that anyone would ever think otherwise. Strongly. [...]

“F*** you!... Where’d you get that? Is that what you think? You think I don’t write my books? ... I would never let anybody write something for me,” he says. “Why do you think I’m like that? It’s amazing to me that you think I’m some lightweight, glib bullshit artist that has somebody do his work for him. The writing is the hard part, the composition.”

What made my question so hurtful, he says, is the enormous amount of labor he’d put in.

I don't blame him.

But the quote was entertaining, so... to quote Chris Matthews, "Ha!"

That was today's Quickie. Was it good for you?
