We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms... And the impervious shelter beneath which it has prospered.
There is this awesome TV show that I watch called Last Man Standing, starring Tim Allen as the "manly man" Mike Baxter, a conservative who loves God, country, and family, who believes in the Constitution and the rights and qualities of a free people with all his heart. It's a terrific TV show with miles and miles of heart, and, amazingly, it actually teaches real family values. This, in a day and age where all TV before the watershed apparently has to be as degenerate as possible while still staying within the norms of FCC-mandated "decency" standards.
There is, however, one rather large fly in that ointment.
See, one of the main characters- Kristin Baxter, the eldest daughter of Mike and his vivacious, charming wife Vanessa, played splendidly by Nancy Travis- was impregnated in high school by a guy named Ryan, who ran from his responsibilities as a father and then came back into the picture. He is, basically, your typical Millennial liberal hippie douchebag, and every time I see him on screen, preaching about environmentalism or how guns kill people or how God doesn't exist, all I can do is turn my eyes to the ceiling and pray to the Lord.
Specifically, I ask Him about that whole Sixth Commandment thing. You know, the one that says, "Thou shalt not murder". In the case of the character of Ryan Vogelson, I constantly find myself asking the Lord if He would really mind granting a mulligan on that particular Commandment. Just that one time. PLEASE...!!!
Right: sh*tlib just asking to get punched
Fortunately, there remains a very good reason to stay tuned in to the show:
Technically, that's more like three reasons
Yes, she is actually that hot. God bless America. And yes, I know, that's gratuitous. Are you really going to complain?
Anyway, getting back to the point- yes, there are in fact times when maybe, just MAYBE, that whole "Death Note" concept would come in rather handy.
Even so, I oppose murder as a matter of principle, no matter who commits it and who the victim is. Though, believe me, Justin Bieber makes a very compelling counterargument...
