    I guess, but it was all good old fashion humor.

    To look at TV comedians, anyone would believe that it was right wing comics who were thin on the ground.
    News: Rich people paying rich people to tell middle class people to blame poor people.

    They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.

    It has been said that comedians are the most insecure people on the planet. This is why they go into comedy, to deflect their fears and anguish. They are hoping to get people to laugh with them instead of at them.

    The majority of what passes for TV humor is liberal propaganda aimed at the low watt, dim bulb types, take late talk shows, or the view.

    Would you care to explain?

    Calling yourself a comedian is one thing. Being funny is quite another. Most of the so called comedians today as I said early on are not funny, they are mean spirited, profane, and think attacking Conservatives or Christians is funny. I don't watch any of the comedy shows anymore because in a word they are REVOLTING.
