Miley Cyrus twerks the VMAs: Pass the eye-bleach

What is wrong with the idea of just turning it off? Photo: AP photos

WASHINGTON, August 26, 2013 — Miley Cyrus performed at the Video Music Awards last night. It wasn’t pretty.

Today millions of Americans are desperate to erase the images of Miley Cyrus singing and doing a lap dance for singer Robin Thicke, a man almost old enough to be her father. The song they performed, “Blurred Lines,” has been criticized for its lyrics that suggest that there is a blurred line when a woman says no, but really means yes:

I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me.

They should be lining up at lawyers’ offices today to sue MTV for intentionally inflicting emotional distress and cruel and unusual punishment.

While millions of us were appalled by what Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga did on MTV last night, the executives are laughing all the way to the bank. After all, millions are talking about it today.

Why do conservatives support the Hollywood-liberal political establishment at all when they can simply turn the television off?

Hollywood celebrities and power players all have one thing in common: They all support Barack Obama and the Democrats. They contribute big bucks to the Democrats. Really big bucks. 

Hiam Saban is famous for creating the children’s show, Power Rangers. He has given millions to Democrats over the last twenty years. He got those dollars as a result of people watching his shows.

Why do conservatives, and their children, watch those shows?

In 1961, Newton Minnow called television a “vast wasteland.” Fifty years later, it has not changed much.

Every so often, conservatives call for a boycott of liberal shows or channels. These boycotts never work. Why do we not simply change our behavior and quit watching TV at all?

Conservatives could do better things with their time than support liberal organizations. How much better would America be if conservatives simply unplugged from cable and satellite TV? They could spend more time on important things, like saving the country, instead of watching the latest episode of “House of Cards.” 

Instead of enriching liberals, conservatives could spend time on personal fitness so they can avoid the Obamacare death panels which will be coming.

Economists tell us that the true cost of something is what they call “opportunity costs.” That is, the real cost of an item is not what you pay for it, but what you give up in order to have it. 

The opportunity costs of watching TV controlled by liberals is simply too great. Just turn it off.

And think of the money you will save on the eye-bleach when you don’t see Miley Cyrus twerking on stage, her “costume” leaving nothing to the imagination.

That is worth the cost alone of turning the TV off.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
