The right is "protecting" its kids from reality.  Only "G" rated movies should be released so those "innocent" children won't be exposed to vulgar, liberal thought and "dirty" words.  They are protected from hearing the "F" word in religious studies at their parochial school environment.  Thank GOD!  All they have to worry about is the priest molesting them.  (But that will be kept secret until they reach maturity.

Sometimes my son asks me why I listen to the right wing nutcakes on radio and TV. Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, Ingraham, etc. etc... It gets more difficult every day but I still try to get their "side" of the story. You know, how we Vietnam vets who think Bush is a coward and a liar are cowards and liars. That sort of thing.

Today I was listening to Glen Beck on the radio. I've still never been able to get through one of his TV shows and I probably won't. It will quickly go the way of that other nut, Michael Savage, whose outrageous TV show lasted about a week.

Glen was talking about Hollywood liberals. You know, the "left wing" they hate. He was discussing the loss of millions of dollars they lose by not releasing "edited" versions of successful movies for "family" viewing.

The premise of his rant was that he doesn't watch "R" rated movies anymore and he wanted "G" versions of those movies released so he could watch them with his family.

In the immortal words of that great philosopher, Charlie Brown: AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! !!!!!!

If you've ever watched an "edited for television" version of ANY good "R" rated movie, you know how ridiculous this argument is.
Beck's version of "Gone With The Wind" would have this line: "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a darn."

Glen Beck's kids should be ready for the real world, huh?

In closing, I'd like to quote a line from another classic, "Smokey And The Bandit"...
"Do the letters F-O mean anything to you?"
