Television, What A Waste Of Time
How much does television mean to you? Would you sacrifice your mind, your
health, and your well-being just to keep ahold of it? Most people would. They are
unaware of the severe effects that TV has on our lives and on our future. I think that
television should be banned from all American households because of the negative ideas
it exploits, the creative minds it destroys, and the growing amount of kids and adults that
are making this place a bigger and lazier country.
In the last decade, the amount of vioilence on television has greatly increased and
so has the number of senseless homicides and suicides in our country. The promiscuity
and violence shown regularly on household televisions has intrigues us as Americans and
numbed our sense of what\'s right and what\'s wrong in society. What shocked us at first has
now become customary dinner-time cinema.
With the increase in the number of television sets in America, more and more
young people have been robbed of their creativity. With TV, hardly anything is left to the
imagination. Before the existence of television, all people wre forced to create their own
opinions and images of things in their own minds. But with TV, all the images
are created for you and almost all the arguments are one-sided. With TV, you no
longer create your own ideas; you are told them.
Television has a great impact on the health of America. The seductive topics and
biased broadcasts shows daily across America are luring more and more people to the
confines of their living room couch for a greater amount of time. Inactivity and
overeating are a common result of this decision made by adults and kids alike. Perhaps
this is the reason why America is one of the fattest countries in the world.
Television is slowly and subliminally taking its toll on America. It is stealing all
of the things that are most precious to us--our mind, body, and soul. If you rely on
television for all your entertainment, I think that you would be way better off looking
for it within yourself and the people around you.

UFOsUFOs UFOs are a hot, controversial subject. We still don\'t know what these objects are, or whether they really exist.
