Guy Blames the Discovery Channel for the Heap of Shit that is 90% of American Television?

Dude. You are going about this AAAAAAALLL wrong.  Yea, TV mostly sucks.  But there are some gems out there.  The least of your worries is the Discovery Channel, trust me.

Apparently his last protest involved throwing money into the air..? Not gonna make much headway doing that, buddy. The FUCKING MONEY kind of steals your thunder there.  That would be like the catholic church trying to make a point about the idolatry of American pop culture by having Spider-Man come out to do back-flips and sign autographs. The suspect James J. Lee has had this to say about Discovery programming:

All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. In those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.

I have to say, this doesn’t sound so crazy.  I see at least a couple people on the street everyday that make me think “he should be sterilized.” We all agree, no one wants another Octo-mom.  But that’s when you complain about social programs that shift money from people who earn enough to pay taxes, to those that take fertility pills and have a dozen kids.  But you can’t just stand outside the building bitching about it and expect to have any better result than you’ll get by pounding sand, or blogging to several dozen readers.  Find a network that shares your sensibilities and come up with a program that people might actually watch.  Write a speech on the realities of teen parenthood and tour some high schools.  Figure out a policy that works and vote the people that advocate it into office (idk).  Gather some data, make a documentary (Discover might even air it if it’s any good!).  And when all that inevitably fails say “fuck it,” crack open a beer, and watch some people faceplanting on YouTube with the rest of us.  If that’s not your style and you just can’t stomach it, then by all means kill yourself.  But don’t walk into a crowded building with explosives when you do it.  Don’t blame Kate Gosselin and certainly don’t blame Discovery.  At least they put food on their tables the old-fashioned way – with a private enterprise built on child labor, not by sucking up tax dollars.

And I think I speak for everyone in New York City when I say, “Don’t fuck with the Cash Cab.”
