Life in the Time of Low Information Voters
I used to love American popular culture. I found it rich, diverse and endlessly amusing. These days, I rarely go to the movies or plays and cannot bear to watch television. Even the radio with its repetitive, uninformative news snippets annoys. Our popular culture has moved from family favorites like Your Show of Shows, The Wonder Years, and I Love Lucy to the minute by minute coverage of celebrities not known for their wit, charm, or beauty, They are known for nothing other than the willingness to put their every part of bodies on narcissistic display and to promote the latest chichi leftwing cause.
Alicia Colon examines the phenomenon of the low information voters such a dross culture produces
Right now they are clueless. Consequently they have allowed the Democrats to hijack and distort the GOP's positions on virtually every issue. Republicans, therefore, don't care about the middle class and only want to reduce the taxes of the rich. They are also racists who want to keep minorities down. These distortions are repeated often by anchors on MSNBC and the alphabet networks. CNN is always on in the social service offices and in airports and the formerly legitimate cable station is so far on the decline that it feels comfortable allowing disgusting antics by amoral hosts on its New Year's Eve broadcast.
But it is folly to assume that all the low-info voters are poorly educated or on the dole. College students and graduates of liberal academia have been completely indoctrinated in leftist ideology and loathe all things conservative. Their bibles include the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times which routinely carry and affirm the Democrat lies.

I have yet to understand exactly who the Kardashian girls are, and why they are famous. How exactly did they become famous? Why exactly have they had various reality shows?
Are they famous for being famous?????
I haven’t the faintest idea and I thought Feldman picked a poor title, but on reading the entire article she’s compairing the Obama run government and the Rat policies to them and that’s appropriate.
I believe Kim made and leaked a sex tape between her and some famous black athlete.
They are famous because of their totally amoral willingness to parade their licentiousness before an audience willing to see it and pay for it. They were no doubt the kind who would willingly pull their pants down for a quarter when they were kids.
The fat assed jungle fever slut epoch
Ain’t racial progress a beautiful thing Atticus?
..has anybody here seen my old friends Martin and Al and Louis?
Catch that train Colin...hurry boy...
I am one of those who don’t even know who they are. I see their names all the time. I did see a picture of one of them and the first thing which came to mind was: “goodness, they are not even pretty”.
From what little I know about them your description as bimbos is the perfect word.
They are the children of a wealthy Armenian-American man in SoCal (I’m not sure if he was an investor or a plastic surgeon, both of which groups are fabulously wealthy) whose wife decided when the girls were little that she wanted them to be “celebrities.” I don’t know exactly how she achieved this, but evidently the parents kept sending videos, photos and articles about them to the press and getting them into celebrity events...and presto, instant celebrity. SFAIK, girls have not done a darn thing, not even appearing in lousy movies.
You’re asking the exact same question I asked when their photos started appearing on the covers of supermarket magazines, which is normally how I keep up with “celebs,” since I don’t watch much TV and wouldn’t know a celebrity if one bit me.
“Famous for being famous... refers to someone who attains celebrity status for no particular identifiable reason such as acting, music, writing, politics, or modeling, or who achieves fame through association with a true celebrity. The term is a pejorative, suggesting that the individual has no particular talents or abilities. Examples are Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and the Kardashian sisters, Kim, Khloé and Kourtney.”
And yes, Kim got famous for a sex tape.
Their father, who is now deceased, helped defend OJ Simpson during his circus trial. The mother married Bruce Jennar(Olympic athlete).
Well, some of us had to pull our pants down for a quarter to afford to buy lunch. Some of us got money by threatening to pull our pants down unless we got a quarter. I got the money to buy my first bike that way.
“OK, Suzie! Give me a quarter or you get to see the tighty whities again!”
“Mrs. Fredrickson! He’s showing us his underwear again!”
“Young man, what is the matter that you have to show the girls your shorts?”
“I make them pay me to keep my pants up.”
“You are going to go to Northwestern University some day.”
And the step father is no less the famous olymphian, Bruce Jenner, who was foolish enough to marry into this trash.
Watching NFL games on TV-—note all the upcoming trailers for movies or TV shows are full of violence and sexual inuendos. Leftists filling the minds of viewers with utter trash as if this is normal.
I agree that the culture has declined, however. . . .hold it. . .gotta run. . Access Hollywood has another poop scoop on Al Roker’s Dumpgate.
Today’s entertainment is absolute garbage. I think it either reflects or helps create a decadent society, probably both.
The state of morality in the U.S. is awful and that is being generous.
Worse than awful
I try my best to avoid today’s entertainment. Usually the only time I encounter it is when I’m stuck out-of-town in some motel room, and turn on the tv out of sheer boredom. It never fails to knock me for a loop, how wildly putrid and degenerate the culture has indeed become. It’s an abject cesspool.
Invariably it leaves me wondering for days as to why I even bother with matters of politics and civics. Why would I even want to lift a finger to help preserve a country as morally bankrupt as to have this kind of deviant swill for its preferred entertainment? To hell with it.
Well don’t keep me in suspense, did you end up in Northwestern U?
I still watch a lot of TV but it is mainly restricted to things like “The History Channel” old movies, Jeopardy etc.
I am getting a whole bunch of free movies for this weekend and there has not been a single one all weekend that I really want to watch. A very high percentage of them are nothing more than pure propaganda disguised as entertainment and you know which side they are on.
Ah, he was an attorney. Mom actually seems to have been the one behind all this.
She sued the b/f who leadked the tape and won $8,000,000 in court. That helps one become famous.
I applied and even had a letter of recommendation from Mrs. Fredrickson. But, sadly, they declined to admit me. They said they had already filled their quota of Underwear Flashers for the upcoming class. Not to worry, though. I am a proud graduate of the world famous New York University of Artsy Schmartzy Stuff. Here’s my painting of a polar bear in a blizzard
Did you see his eyes?
Armenians aint really white anyway. Nobody really is east of Rhodes.
LOL!! Yes, such technique and brush control! Alas, true genius never does see the light of day.
Kim has big boobs and all of them are SLUTTY and stupid people LOVE that.
I USED to admire Bruce Jenner....then he married into this family, got PLASTIC SURGERY and EARRINGS and went with all the SLUT crap.......pathetic.
Bruce also likes to wear women’s clothes.
Is that a JOKE?? Is he GAY? YUK.
It is not a joke. He is not gay. He did admit he likes to wear women’s clothes.
