    I honestly don't see what the big deal is. Where you once had to wait until Saturday morning to watch them, now you can watch the exact same shows any time you want, streaming online. Every day is Saturday morning now.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Sadly - the bugs bunny cartoons were pulled off the air, many episodes now are considered overtly racist or criticized for showing smoking (same with the old popeyes) - same with the older Tom & Jerry's. I remember waiting eagerly to watch Rocky & Bullwinkle, Peabody & Sherman, Dudley Do-right, even Yogi Bear or Quick Draw McGraw.... but alas Quick Draw carried guns - another huge problem. Same with some of the bugs bunny's with Sam who also carried guns. All now taboo. Only place to find those cartoons now is on Youtube.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There was something amazingly magical and fun about Saturday mornings as a kid. Waking up early and watching the shows you've been waiting all week to see. A full long block of entertainment that you loved, usually with a nice big bowl of sugary cereal, before heading outside to enjoy the rest of the saturday. The anticipation, and the specialness of those saturday morning shows being something you usually only saw on Saturdays (or only got seemingly new ones), made it that much better.
    All those sucked.

    my top fav cartoons:

    #1 Original spongebobs (early 2000's)

    #2 Johnny bravo (90's?)

    #3 Courage the Cowardly Dog

    #4 Beavis and Butthead

    #5 popeye
