America isn't going to get better guys, it's only going to get worse as this current generation becomes adults. Think about it. Those of us fortunate enough to have grown up as kids in the 80s and 90s KNOW the difference between thick skinned and thin skinned. Today, everyone has "rights" but no responsibilities and it's that way because this nation as "allowed" the dumb fucks and the money elite with more money than common sense to get their way. It's that way because (never thought I'd be saying this) people do nothing but play video games all day and only care about that, social media and adopting ANYTHING that's cool. It's to the point no one has a *True* opinion anymore and it's just parroting what the guy or gal next to you just said. If there's a moral/social OUTRCRY, everyone just says: "YEAH!" and shakes their fist and adopts that stance as their own. Half the time the average dipshit doesn't even understand what it is their upset about.

Schools went from you could take your .22rifle to school in the 1950s for the Rifle Team (in some places) to if you're bullied and fight back you're in more trouble than the bully/assaulter. America is trying to adopt that policy into everyday life. You can't call someone Retarded even though there's nothing inflammatory about it, they're "Handicapped". You can't say something is Gay or Queer because it offends someone who might be Homosexual, but then it doesn't always have to mean someone's sexual orientation/identity/lifestyle either. You can't say Niggah or the worse version when anyone (especially) a black person (I'm half black at that) is acting like one, BUT APPARENTLY all white folks are to blame for everything and reverse racism is alive and well. I know a guy who's pissed at Japanese people for Pearl Harbor and a Japanese guy who's pissed at Americans for Hiroshima. ---NEWS FUCKING FLASH!!! It happened, it sucks, but what our grandparents did has nothing to do with each other. AND WITHIN ALL THIS YOU HAVE... AMERICA, NOW.

Gutless (for the most part)
Easily Offended
Gay as Hell and you have to put up with it but don't stand for your own beliefs
Anti-God and anyone who's religious/spiritual is a "dumb ass" and needs to embrace Science
and whatever else...
Excuse Making Experts
Vapid Dolts who's allowed video games to overtake EVERY facet of their lives instead of being
a "cool" interactive distraction (nigga please, there are people who solely live to be "a professional gamer")
Apologists.

^

We're fucking doomed and in the end, America is embracing the very Socialist bullshit that we fought against the USSR during the Cold War over. Nikita Krushchev once said we'd fall from within, and he was right. This used to be the land of the giant swinging hairy ballsack and brass ovaries who stood tall and didn't get offended by much of anything. Now we might as well change the National Anthem to "Star Spangled Cocksuckers". ***This stupid shit over the rebel flag, and further allowing revisionist history to "Sterilize" not just history but our present is loathsome. When most of us are in our late 60s to mid 70s, it's all over. America might be here in name but it'll no longer be here. It'll be led and ran by morons and/or so-educated-their-stupid types. Strange Indeed that DEMOLITION MAN DID get it right.

So has it been confirmed that's why the show was taken off the air? Or is this just a knee-jerk reaction for the sake of complaining?

It's a knee jerk reaction that led to the show being taken off the air. This whole recent bullshit has also forced the digital removal of the rebel flag from a dance scene in the movie GONE WITH THE WIND, and that it will no longer be able to be shown in movie theaters from this point forward even if someone wants to rent the rights to do so (like Alamo Drafthouse does with older movies). Amazon won't sell products with the rebel flag, Ebay is even looking at forbidding the sell of anything to do with it. IT'S TOO MUCH. People need to grow some goddamned balls and cock slap someone's mother.

^ The above mentions (I'll have to look for the other links later, I'm busy) Amazon and WAL-MART (my bad, I said eBAY) no longer carrying not only Duke of Hazzard stuff but ANYTHING with the Rebel Flag. *I even asked around at several Wally Worlds near me and the staff has stated they are to take "anything off the shelves with the rebel flag". So that's true. As far as the GONE WITH THE WIND thing. Perhaps I misread that, so I stand corrected, but don't be surprised when it happens.

Make of it as you will.

My point is overrall, if someone takes a shit on the white house lawn right now, THE REST OF THE NATION PAYS FOR IT. Then you have the usual suspects wanting to be contra to this or that. It makes me a nevermind anyhow, I live my fucking life day-by-day and usually mind my own business unless provoked to violence. America can blow itself up for all I care, just leave me the fuck alone.

Bubba Watson’s General Lee (also known as the 1969 Dodge Charger driven by the Duke brothers in 1980s TV show The Dukes of Hazzard) will no longer have a Confederate flag on top.

On Thursday, the two-time Masters champion tweeted his decision to paint over it with the American flag.


@bubbawatson
All men ARE created equal, I believe that so I will be painting the American flag over the roof of the General Lee #USA

Watson, who was born in Florida and attended the University of Georgia, paid $110,000 for the General Lee at an auction in 2012. In January, he got the car autographed by John Schneider, the actor who played Bo Duke.

Oh my god Lonesage, I'm asking was it CONFIRMED THAT THE SHOW WAS TAKEN OFF AIR BECAUSE OF THAT STUPID FLAG.

Come on man, there's a huge uproar over the flag in the past month, General Lee toy cars (why are they still making those? Are KITT cars still being made too?) are gone because of the flag, and then TV Land stops syndication all at the same time? It's ok to connect the dots in this case.

It's a shitty show and shitty shows get pulled all the time. Connect the dots better man.

WTF?! That is beyond absurd.When did erasing parts of America's History become "the in thing"?

since at least the last 20 years or more? Does nobody remember all the old Tom and Jerry cartoons (and a lot of other ones that were made around world war 2 etc) being taken off the air or no longer available because they showed a lot of politically incorrect stereotypes.....or even the whole Political Correctness is Ruining America rants have existed for 20-30 years and ongoing?

seems like life just moves on as usual and most of this stuff doesn't really affect most people's lives as much as the next trivial thing is again an example of "America Is No Longer What It Used to Be" Season 25.

Hell…Looney Toons for that matter. I grew up on those and I can't recall the last time I saw them on television.

I've always identified the closest with Bugs Bunny above all other cartoon characters.

Completely ridiculous.

How do we fight hatred and intolerance?

By banning things, of course!

So let me get this straight, a gunman kills some black people while waving a confederate flag, now the entire USA wants to ban said flag because it now stands for racism...

The confederate flag should have been pulled from all state buildings a long time ago. It's got an ugly history at best, and was a symbol of treason against the United States. Sorry good ole boys, you lost.

The flag being pulled from other media is pretty dumb, particularly legacy stuff. Pretending things don't exist doesn't make them go away.

Thing is, we don't even know if it was pulled to not offend people. Maybe ratings had plummeted, or advertisers pulled out, or maybe it's rotation or contract was up. We'll never get a straight answer on that subject. Sounds like a lot of thin skinned folks in here are leaping to conclusions.

Seeing stuff brought up about looney tunes does make me chuckle. You know why looney tunes doesn't get as much air time these days? Other than a couple blatantly racist episodes it's simply a matter of money. There aren't enough adults watching and if you're a cable executive that's going to show something to kids you want to show them something with a ton of tie-in merchandising, toys, video games, and also something that isn't a licencing nightmare with warner who see the ip as being much more valuable than it probably is today.

I have some bad news guys. A lot of us just aren't the market anymore.

They still air on Boomerang however thanks to Ted Turner, Mammy's voice sounds like a young lady and all the 'blackface' and scenes that could be racist have been deleted.
Hell…Looney Toons for that matter. I grew up on those and I can't recall the last time I saw them on television.
Another Boomerang regular but no Speedy Gonzales or Peppy LePew toons. Also many of the old toons won't air due to racial profiling.

There was this "flag burning" and anti-NYPD thing in brooklyn the other day but instead of protesters a big crowd of pissed off Veterans showed up.

One flag got lit and a some old dude came and took it out of the fire pit and started shoving it in one of the protesters faces.. the anti-cop protesters were shitting themselves like the commie fagets they are, and had to be escorted out under the protection of

The NYPD

Good times
