    It bothers me too Oompa.

    Trying to raise kids that don't swear and watch disgusting movies is a real challenge today. The commercials are enough to give nightmares and scar their little minds and hearts! I hate that about TV. I hate having a commercial interrupting the show as they dance a time and people from the other show across the bottom of the screen. Intentionally breaking your concentration and messing up the picture.

    I hate that ABC advertises themselves as the "new family". I hate their "family" ideas. They are so corrupt and show no morals or values in their shows. I miss the days of "ALF", "Cosby" and "Home Improvement". There is nothing out there for "traditional family" television. I sure am not going to have my daughter watch a show about a pregnant 16 year old! Not the values I want instilled.

    I can't believe the way kids talk and act. The movies that their parents let them go to. We went to a *gasp* rated R movie for the first and only time over a year ago. There were so many little kids around 6 to 9 there I couldn't believe it. No wonder my kids have problems with terrible kids in their schools. Their parents are encouraging it. It's sad. So sad that they think it's alright to offend any and everyone with their obscenities.

    I may cuss enough to make a sailor blush at times...but I try not to do it in front of children or other people. I don't think the cat really he gets to hear it!

    I think that swear words are like spices. Used sparingly, they can enhance comments or jokes. You may love garlic salt, but if you dump a cup of it into a dish it will be inedible. I can stand watching anything with constant swear words.
