ABC makes a smart move...IMHO

A bonehead move was to cancel Last Man Standing...but today they cancel Roseanne...GOOD! Hope that big mouth now rides off into the silent sunset.

    True dat....but still it was a bonehead move on her part. Too bad the same criteria doesn't apply to everyone. You know....in that interest of equality and fairness we keep hearing about but never actually see.

    I agree. Thats all I can saw without possibility of being banned after it starts me on a rant of which most folks could figure out.

    No doubt Roseanne did a stupid thing. But, ABC had yet another conundrum on their hands - very popular show that does not align with the ideology of the executives. Sound familiar? :smile:

    You are stating that anyone who makes or views an meme is ignorant, which is calling them a derogatory name.

    My point being is anybody that posts a meme as fact, and anybody that accepts that as fact , is ignorant. So much of that goes on especially on Facebook.

    Oh, and people that drive drunk, or steal, etc are also ignorant.

    But last week ESPN (ABC) hired Keith Olberman who has on the record said many worse things than Roseanne did. Does that mean they have to fire him now?

    Go google Olberman's comments.

    I don't know, may be I am wrong here. I was just raised in an environment where under no circumstances would it be ok to refer to any black person or person of black lineage as an ape.

    No wonder I ran away from home @ 16 to return 2 years later.

    So, if I have offended anyone please accept my apologies.

    It seems like for too many people, politics is religion. So, a shrieking troglodyte like Roseanne or Kathy Griffen can do or say just about anything and be cool with people near the fringes.

    Jonny Depp mentioned assassinating the new President to a large applause from a crowd.
    Madonna thought about blowing up the White House to a large applause from a croud.

    Depp's in 4 movies so far this year I think I heard. But he wasn't racist, so that makes his remark OK.

    Madonna is so rich, she doesn't care.

    I'm really sad that Rosanne publicly said her joke. I'm sure she heard a remark somewhere and wanted to put it out for a laugh. But it was a BAD joke. The kind you keep to a tight group who feel the same. Somebody should've told her that joke was wrong and not even proper.

    That's soooo true.

    Sam Shepard said Rosanne tried to immediately apologize.

    I yelled at the TV...TRIED???? She did you moron.

    Trump is speaking in Tenn. tonight. Aired only by Fox network as usual.

    Are the mainstream channels showing it? Of course not. They don't want to hear him or want their viewers to hear him either. VERY SAD. He IS the President. And the other channels IGNORE him.
