The teenage actor who plays the half in the hit CBS comedy "Two and a Half Men" says in a video posted online by a Christian church that the show is "filth" and that viewers shouldn´t watch it. Nineteen-year-old Angus T. Jones has been on the show, which used to feature bad-boy actor Charlie Sheen and remains heavy with sexual innuendo, since he was 10 but says he doesn´t want to be on it anymore. "Please stop watching it," Jones said. "Please stop filling your head with filth."
I listen to live streaming most of the day, and commercials for this trash are played and it is filthy and highly offensive. I would never watch it and hate that I have to listen to the clips from it in the commercials. It is not suitable for children to hear. WHAT kind of people think that it is entertainment?
God bless that kid. I cannot imagine ever watching that show, and I frankly am surprised at those of you who are familiar with the show. Why would you watch such a show the first time? It is time for adults to start acting like adult.
Dittos I feel so much better since I kicked Time-Warner cable out of my house over a year ago. Why pay money to have that garbage pumped into your home? The stuff on TV today isn´t fit for human consumption. I get much better quality news online as well as learn something worthwhile. There should be a general boycott of the present day TV/Mainstream Media industry.
It is filth. And the other show I call "The Big Smut Theory". Sorry, but these writers are either gay or not getting enough. We cancelled cable about 5 years ago with no regrets. I have commented to my family that the CBS Monday lineup says: "you may have gone to church yesterday, but we´ll fix that".
I only watched it long enough to find out how disgusting it was. In prime time at that. I wondered how this boys parents could condone him being on that show. As for poster 3s sarcasm, maybe just maybe this young man is growing up and becoming a man. I think in the earlier years, his parents went along with it because of the money. Maybe that is coming to an end.
Young people change as they mature. I am happy that he has chosen to speak out. No doubt he will come under a lot of critisism. Hollywood doesn´t like Christians. Pray for him to recieve godly wisdom and direction. May his next role be a better one.
I watched the show when Angus was young, and I thought it hilarious. Then I found it pushing the boundaries somewhat. I recommended it to a friend as we bemoaned the passing of Everybody Loves Raymond, and she got back to me with the comment, ´´not my type of humor´´. So I watched some more of it and found it to also be not my type of humor. I check in on it once in a while and young man Angus has got it right. It´s a filthy show and totally degrading to women, not to mention to some less sexually active men like Charlie´s brother. Good for Angus for speaking out. He certainly had to grow up fast during those eight years.
I always thought they were corrupting that kid, and I am really surprised he survived with an ounce of morality left in him. He was certainly resilient apparently, but I cannot watch that show without being insulted.
I hope he made alot of money - his parents sold him out when he didn´t know any better.
Bravo for this young man for speaking out against the filth of Hollyweird. I haven´t watched this dreck way before the dummy Carlos Estevez aka Charlie Sheen left. I say dummy because his brother Emilio seems to be the smart one. Anyway Angus will have the Hollyweirdos gunning for him now because we know how they feel about us "Jesus freaks" who cling to our religion. I think though that this brave young man can weather the storm and become stronger for it.
Hmmmm... here in Realville, specifically in the non-Hollywood, non-union private sector, if you don´t like your employer, you go out and find another employer. Bad-mouthing your employer while you are still in his employ is never a good idea...common sense, ya know.
The prosecutor overseeing the investigation of sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston said Wednesday that it is completed. State Attorney Willie Meggs has scheduled a news conference at 2 p.m. Thursday in his office to announce his findings. Meggs said investigators have learned as much as they can about the December 2012 incident. "We think we have exhausted all investigative tools," he said. Winston has led the Seminoles to the No. 1 ranking, and they will play for a conference title Saturday, with a shot at the national crown. The quarterback also is the leading candidate for the
For months, all eyes in the sky have pointed at the comet that´s zooming toward a blisteringly close encounter with the sun. The moment of truth comes Thursday — Thanksgiving Day. The sun-grazing Comet ISON, now thought to be less than a mile wide, will either fry and shatter, victim of the sun´s incredible power, or endure and quite possibly put on one fabulous celestial show. Talk about an astronomical cliffhanger. Even the smartest scientists are reluctant to lay odds. Should it survive, ISON, pronounced EYE´-sahn, would be visible with the naked eye through December, at least from the Northern
The Anthem Blue Cross representative who answered my call told me that there was a silver lining in the cancellation of my individual P.P.O. policy and the $5,400 annual increase that I would have to pay for the Affordable Care Act-compliant option: now if I have Stage 4 cancer or need a sex-change operation, I’d be covered regardless of pre-existing conditions. Never mind that the new provider network would eliminate coverage for my and my son’s long-term doctors and hospitals. The Anthem rep cheerily explained that despite the company’s — I paraphrase — draconian rates and limited network, my benefits,
At a time when over 4 million people have had their health insurance canceled, it’s good to know that some Americans can still access prompt medical treatment, even if they don’t want it. David Eckert was pulled over by police in Deming, N.M., for failing to come to a complete halt at a stop sign in the Walmart parking lot. He was asked to step out of the vehicle, and waited on the sidewalk. Officers decided that they didn’t like the tight clench of his buttocks, a subject on which New Mexico’s constabulary is apparently expert, and determined that it
Sen. Lindsey Graham says he will lead the charge in the Senate on federal legislation banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The Republican senator said on Fox News Sunday that he plans to introduce the bill this week. It would allow abortions after 20 weeks only to protect the life of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest. The Republican-controlled House passed its version of the bill in June. It´s not expected to go anywhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate. The U.S. Supreme Court´s 1973 decision legalized abortion until a fetus could viably survive outside of the womb,
Democrat Terry McAuliffe leads Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II by 4 points in the Virginia governor’s race, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday — a considerably narrower margin than other recent public polling has shown. The businessman and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee leads Mr. Cuccinelli, the state’s attorney general, 45 percent to 41 percent, the poll showed, with 9 percent of likely voters opting for Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis. That lead is down from a 46 percent to 39 percent advantage for Mr. McAuliffe in a Quinnipiac poll last week, when Mr. Sarvis was at 10
During a game that turned into a 19th nervous breakdown for Cardinals’ fans, the home team drove everyone half-mad on an utterly bizarre Saturday night at Busch Stadium. Fitting, then, that this long, strange trip ended on a basepath trip that gave the Cardinals a mind-bending 5-4 victory over Boston’s angry, Red-Faced Sox in World Series Game 3. After an evening that spun out of control, the Cardinals took control of the 109th Fall Classic _ on a classic fall by Allen Craig. The Cards grabbed a 2-1 series lead in the craziest, zaniest and most improbable way. A limp-off
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
