TV Verses The Computer

Many people have decided to take out the "Beast" as it is often referred and start spending more time together as a family. I'm of course talking about the TV. We do not have cable television or local channels piped into our home for one main reason. It takes away our precious time as a family and we don't have a lot of that as it is...We do still have the TV for viewing videos or TV shows we choose.
Now I said that was the main reason, but there are more...

Commercials are deadly; and you can't really watch any type programming from cable without having to view them or at least turn off the TV until the storm passes. Also, there just wasn't anything that we like on TV, except the very rare occasion that we could find something wholesome and for the most part that was on a religious station.

The next topic is going to ruffle some feathers in Blogger land, but I'm going to go ahead and say it...
If you are one such as I that thinks the TV is or most certainly can be a "Beast" in your home, then you have to hopefully realize that the computer is the "Beast's" cousin the "Dragon".

The only difference I see in the "Beast" verses the "Dragon" is the commercials...That could and probably will change in the future when commercials will be mandatory over the internet...

Here's what you can get from the TV and Computer that is equally deadly to your family:
1) Less time with your family
2) Immoral items (you fill in the blank)
3) Misinformed or biased opinions about a subject.
4) Addiction to either...

And the list goes on, and on, and on.....Just like the energizer bunny.

But one great thing about the computer is I get to hear how you are doing - - - since it seems like forever since I have seen you!!!! And that's at least half my fault. I could run downstairs when you bring the kids. Isn't it nice to have some older ones who can run an errand inside a building without you having to unbuckle everyone?

I agree!!! One must be careful, or both the TV and the computer can suck you in!!!

I agree -- modern technology can definitely rob one of much quality in life. It can be a blessing at times, but those are rare. Thanks for speaking your mind.
