    It's like someone saying "I know what it's like to be a black person because I'm an emo and we're discriminated against too". Class-A idiocy.

    Some people simply lack the intelligence necessary to understand such a notion, though.

    ......especially when they share the same moronic views.

    Yep, very true....A&E can let anyone go they want....They had probably the most watched show in the country at the moment, and now they've lost that....But GLAAD is happy....What idiots.

    the civil rights act of 1964 does have something to say about employment, protected classes, and such.

    If you are fired for a sharing a belief, and that belief is protected, then the issue gets slightly more murky then what you just painted.

    You misunderstand. I did not call the performers on the show IDIOTS. My reference to the film IDIOCRACY was its central theme was the degradation of American culture - the IDIOCRACY became the masses of Americans who lost all sense of intelligence, taste and other positive assets. I believe this show is indicative of that sad trend and I would add t he Kardashians, the Housewives, Honey Boo, and lots of other reality shows to it.

    As to your comment about them being rich and I am not - I am doing very well thank you. And their income means nothing to me either way and in no way shape or from indicates the quality of their show or product.

    If money is all that is important there are some women who work nights near a truck stop that I sometimes gassed up at coming home late from the legislature and based on what they said they wanted - they must have taken in at least $500 to 800 a night for what some others do for free . I guess three or four grand a week is good money to some and if all you care about is money it certainly buys lots of mouthwash.

    Really was he banned from every channel on TV?

    I thought it was just A&E and it was a suspension, not a banning.

    You will be happy to know the family is talking to A&E right now and they don't see a way to continue the show without Phil, so most likely they will stop the show.

    You can rest easy now.
