I have Sirius radio in my vehicle. I do enjoy the variety and the lack of commercials. For me, paying to subscribe is worth it to avoid countless advertising that I would not listen to anyway. I would just change the station, just like I do on TV.
There used to be a time when we could count on Actors, Actresses, and Comediennes to actually entertain us. We could watch award shows with excitement to see our favorite movies and actors win. We knew the show would be full of great entertainment such as singing, movie clips and of course, comedy. Those were the good old days. Bob Hope probably cries in heaven when the Academy Awards shows every year. The award shows have become a spectacle of cursing, insults, and preaching to those of us who would dare to vote for President Trump because he is supposedly the one with bad rhetoric and poor judgment. He is the immoral one, heck he was married three times. How immoral is that? He insults people! OH, holy horror! A president who insults those who insult him, his family, and his friends. How dare he fight back.
I remember when I was younger, many years ago I am afraid, school was a place kids went to learn about English, science, history, math, perhaps learn a new language or a musical instrument. It was a place where I was taught, no encouraged, to think for myself. I loved to be in a class where we were encouraged to debate the topic of the day. I would purposely choose the least favorite aspect to debate the alternative view, even if I did not agree with it, just to keep the debate lively.
