This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

A new survey commissioned by a media watchdog group claims the news and entertainment media are damaging the nation’s moral values.

The Culture and Media Institute (CMI) has published a report called “The Media Assault on American Values: The conflict between the media, personal responsibility, and respect for religion.” The report finds that 68 percent of Americans say the media have a negative impact on moral values in this country. In addition, 73 percent say the entertainment industry is having a negative impact.

At an event in Washington to unveil the report, CMI director Bob Knight argued the more a person watches television, the less likely he is to accept personal responsibility for his actions. “We believe that the figures show clearly that the more TV you watch, the more you want to depend on the government,” Knight explained.

“The people who are heavy TV viewers, by 63 percent, think government should be primarily responsible for our healthcare,” he continued. “Sixty-four percent believe government should be primarily responsible for retirement. That’s a good deal higher than the light TV viewers and the overall findings.”

According to the report, “heavy television viewers” watch four or more hours each evening; “light” viewers, one hour or less.

The report also shows the more a person watches TV, the less likely he is to value religious principles and obedience to God. “So there’s something happening out there,” Knight commented. “If you watch a lot of TV, you think maybe your problems are someone else’s problems.”
