That is a big difference between yesterday and today Greeney. There were quite a few lampoons in the papers of the 1860s about Lincoln, and other presidents before him. Still even in the jests and ridicule of our presidents, there has been some decency that was inherent in our culture. Even in the 1960s there was still some decency left. Today, America has done a complete turn around in that respect. A comedian isn't considered funny unless he's vulgar. And the lampooning of our presidents reflects that. America has lost its sense of decency, and will do anything for its shock value.

I don't mind ribbing any politician but, the picture above goes too far. People no longer respect the office of the president, or anything else for that matter.

I think it's f***ing hilarious!


It definitely should read "Why so socialist?" though, I agree SWR.

Oh right, it's OUR generation that screwed it up.

Typical. :roll:
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

I think its just a shinning example of changing values and standards, and most directly the elimnation of any values and standards at all. Boundries mean nothing anymore, was proven by the Puke in's we had a few years ago, being called freedom of speech and expression.

I think it's f***ing hilarious!


I'm not singling you out Tairaa, because this is the attitude of many people. But if this is your kind of humor, I would consider "fucking halarious" would mean the funnyist thing you could think of, instead of a little funny, very funny, its "fucking halarious", your standard of humor and mine are totally different. I don't regard rank satire humorous at all, its usually vindictive and hateful in nature. If they did the same thing to your Mother or Father, in your local paper, or where they go to church, would you think thats very funny, or regard is as dirty, lowdown and mean?

I totally disagree! Unfortunatly we have dummyied down to a level where the target audience is entertained by vulgar humor, but that caters to those with real lack of refinement and education. The shock value of vulgar jokes and vile language punch lines appeals to a lot of people, but you can be funny and halarious with clean humor. You can proove that by turning on the TV and seeing how many of the 50's comedy shows have stood the test of time, where they are as funny today as then. They were so "G" rated it was pathetic, but the humor is still funny today. The 3 stooges, the Marz Brothers, Abbott and Costello, Laural and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, all clean and real humor.


Maybe we need to raise the bar a little, pull ourselves out of vular humor, Brainless cursing in action movies, Satire that is dispicable, and puking in public as a Constitutional right?
