This Sunday the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony will grace our TV’s. During the Ceremony, Arizona can be expected to be raked over the coals once again. Of course it is no longer the G-rated Program it once was. Now they have to use “L” for Language and “N” for Nudity alerts and probably “M” for Mature would be more fitting. We will of course be subjected to some male/female body part(s) being bared due to an “accidental” clothing malfunction. We will of course be subjected to f-bombs, c-bombs, s-bombs and other assorted profanity from the host/hostess, the presenters, and the awardees. Crocodile tears, mock surprise and humility will rule the day. The “best” movie will be awarded to one of the usual liberal Hollywood. Heaven forbid that any movie positively portraying a normal American family or having a pro-American theme would ever win an Oscar these days.

There will be commercials portraying starving/abused children and/or starving/abused pets asking for monthly donations (a la PBS). What used to be “family” entertainment has now degenerated (literally) into the realm of “adult” entertainment. No longer is your everyday American lifestyle shown, but now any and all alternative lifestyles will be glorified for a couple of hours for all the world to see. Yes, a billion people will watch the Oscars, and a billion people will wonder what in the heck has America become.
