The Networks say "To Hell with the KIDS"!!!

To my Conservative Friends:

As a Conservative and a capitalist, I understand that free-market enterprise and profit are integral to a thriving and growing economy. That being said, I must say the broadcast Networks, in cahoots with the advertisers, have gotten waaaaay out of hand with the downright inappropriate commercials for the kids...

Now the networks have chosen to move a lot of the sports programming to prime time to increase their revenues because they can then charge more for ads, fine... But they should be forced to curtail some of their explicit advertising so the kids can watch...

I am not talking about late-night TV.. I am talking about daytime and prime time network coverage during football and baseball games. Many of you, like a lot of my friends don't have young children so it may not even perk your radar, but my wife and I are constantly amazed at what the networks allow during times when kids are watching...

We really started to notice this several years ago when we couldn't even watch the commercials during American Idol.... So now it is standard practice in our home to mute the commercials during Idol because the network can't help itself in showing gratuitous sex in their ads... The temptation is too great for the advertisers to pass up the highest rated show on TV for their smut... Our kids should learn about these things when their parents deem it appropriate for them. Each child matures at different times and we should not be forced to explain 4-hour erections and STD's when your trying to introduce your 7-year old to the Superbowl!!

Now some have said to me, "don't blame the networks, its the advertisers that are producing these commercials". I say to those people, the most egregious of the commercials are from the networks humping (no pun intended) their prime-time lineup by showing extremely sexual situations with scantily clad woman and overt dialogue about stuff that we never saw when we were kids.... Now, don't get me wrong, I am no prude and have no problem with adult programming. We live in a free society and companies should have the right to advertise their product, whatever it is.... But my point here is why can't we have some guidelines and show some decorum to protect the children from being exposed to this stuff before they are ready to comprehend it...

Just to give you a few examples... Just last night, my son and I were watching the Giants/Cowboys game for about a hour before his bedtime at 9pm. NBC, in shamelessly "pimping" its new shows, airs an ad for their reality show, "Momma's Boys". The first 10 seconds shows men trying to hook up with different women in sexual explicit situations on the beach and in hot-tubs. There were 3 bleeps for the obvious f-word and other inappropriate language.. I mean, c'mon - Can't they wait until the last hour or so of the game when the kids are in bed, say after 9??? Would that be so bad for the network to advertise their adult content when they know most of the kids won't be watching??

You be the judge and tell me if this should be shown to children:




Yeah, real classy.... I'll be sure to tune in....

Just to give this some perspective, a great site called retrojunk.com has assemble some of the most famous commercials during the 80's.. Some of them include; "Where's the Beef" from Wendy's and "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie pop?" The point is, that these ads were funny, witty, entertaining and memorable... What companies need to attract customers and build brand loyalty. And they do this without any gratuitous sex that is inappropriate for children...

Just to take a trip down memory lane that I know will have you smiling. Here are some of the pasts greatest commercials:





And when you think of the best and most memorable commercials of today, none of them include gratuitous sex... I think of the genius Caveman commercials from Geico and the Billy Mays infomercials.... Funny, witty and memorable without the crap... So, it can be done. But sex sells so why be creative. Just throw up Beyonce shaking her booty in a prostitutes outfit to pimp DirectTV?? I don't get it....


So when did we see this obvious change to the attitude that nobody cares about the kids. They have to learn it someday, so why not explain sex, erections and homosexuals to 7 year-olds??? I say this all started going down-hill during the nineties when a small, vocal minority propelled by the Holly-weird crowd and the mainstream media yelled its OK for the President to have sex with a girl his daughters age in the oval office. And then lie about it... It's only sex!!!

I don't care what your politics, but once this becomes part of the American lexicon, sex in ads for kids doesn't seem so bad.... And the snowball starts rolling down the hill till everyone jumps in the orgy pool!!

Call me old-fashioned, but I say let kids be kids and enjoy sports, games, dolls and kid things... There is plenty of time for them to be adults when they become adults... The traditional values I am advocating here are abhorred by the left and they love to stick their thumb in conservatives' eye by pushing this envelope further and further everyday until we become so de-sensitized by it that you will see a Cialis commercial for homosexuals during Sesame Street and the left would say - They gotta learn sometime!!!!

Is is too late to turn the train around??? Some say you can't put the toothpaste back in the tube... Perhaps. But no need to let it spill all over the floor and not at least try to clean it up...

Please tell me I am not the only who thinks this way....

Just my thoughts...
