Quote# 15488

The average American out there loves the show "24," OK? They love Jack Bauer, they love "24." In my mind, that's as close to a national referendum that it's OK to use tough tactics against high-level al-Qaida operatives as we're ever going to get.

Besides, not only we could go on saying that series such as CSI and X-files had success and aren´t supposed to be polls on the fact of forensic sciences is ok or that reality is out there. And, of course, when is Harry Potter the bright one, there is an outcry of hell from people like you, NOPE. I am not going to backlash your hypocrisy and pick and choose. I mean, this series portrays too, very UNREALISTIC FACTS. For example, a black president. Of course, it´s not a referendum, because common 24 viewers are racist enough not to allow it to happen. Don´t use simplistic arguments.

Most of America can distinguish between fact and fiction, moron.

A large number of people enjoy 1984, does that mean..... wait, nevermind, this might give them ideas.

Lots of Americans love the show \"LOST.\" Should we maroon everyone on spooky islands? Or maybe just you, Laura?

Married with children had high ratings.

Though if there was a Harry Potter TV series it might get higher ratings.

\"The above-average American out there loves the show \"Star Trek,\" OK? They love Spock, they love \"Star Trek.\" In my mind, that's as close to a national referendum that it's OK to use phasers against high-level Klingon operatives as we're ever going to get.\"


\"The above-average American out there loves the show \"CSI,\" OK? They love Grissom, they love \"CSI.\" In my mind, that's as close to a national referendum that it's OK to use forensics against high-level criminal operatives as we're ever going to get.\"


\"The above-average American out there loves the show \"Justice League,\" OK? They love Superman, they love \"Justice League.\" In my mind, that's as close to a national referendum that it's OK to use superpowers against high-level supervillain operatives as we're ever going to get.\"


Hey, this actually works pretty well if you just choose the right kind of show!

And people follow Laura IngraHamhead, who is indistiguishable from that other Laura (Schlesinger)? Geez.

I liked \"Star Wars,\" too. Do we all get light-sabers?

This person actually wants foreign policy based on fictional TV shows. I don't even think \"Dubya\" is that stupid.

I love the show House. But if I had a doctor like that, I'd be pissed.

Wasn't the bad guy last season an American corporate greedy bastard?

I'm sorry, but disregarding the whole "24 is fictitious" and "just because I watch a show doesn't mean I agree with things on it" bits, I'd like to issue a one word rebuttal:

Guantanamo

Yeah, that place where people have been held for years and tortured without ever being charged. The place where most convicts were detained simply because their parents were middle eastern. The place where every human rights violation possible has been committed.
Oh yes, I know why you ignore it: because it doesn't officially exist! Despite the many, many videotapes of it, interviews conducted within it, and general public knowledge of it.... oh yes, and because the U.S government stated that they were closing the prison (only to replace it with one in Afghanistan).

Gee, Laura, I don't really know what you're putting together here, as I don't watch TV.

Does that make me a terrorist?

Could it mean that, since Lost is a great success is close to a national referendum to live in a desert island?

8/8/2009 2:05:15 PM



People loved Superman in the fifties and I don´t remember being a national referendum to try to fly with a blue and red suit.

I enjoy watching Let's Plays of Persona 3, but that doesn't mean I endorse people shooting themselves in the head.

Also, I used to listen to this bloke on the radio years ago. I should feel ashamed.

Your mind has more holes in it than a Swiss cheese. Mind you, it's hard to expect people who take the Bible literally to distinguish fact from fiction.

@CousinTed:

A good portion of the American public enjoy Batman, does that mean law enforcement should be carried out by costumed vigilanties?

A good portion of the American public enjoys Star Wars, does that mean we should build giant, planet-destroying space lasers and establish a Jedi council?

A good portion of the AMerican public enjoys The Simpsons, does that mean we should paint everybody yellow and force them to have wacky misadventures?


I vote "yes" on the last two, and am reserving judgment on the first.
