Probably the funniest thing i’ve watched all day.
This was a great demonstration of gun control and the narrator was excellent.

I’ve responded to this more times than I can count. You are a dime a dozen my anonymous friend. Yes, Ron Swanson is a parody, but just like other conservative/libertarian parodies such as Archie Bunker, Alex Keaton, Red Forman, Stan Smith, Barney Stinson, Jay Prichett, Al Bundy, Cliff Huxtable, Don Draper, Hank Hill and even to some extent Walter White and Jack Donaghey, blue-collar Americans tend to relate more with them than the atypical liberal characters like Leslie Knope, Liz Lemon, Lisa Simpson, Hanna Horvath, Mitchell Prichett, Ted Mosby, Marshall Ericksen, Roseanne Carter, and Brian Griffin. This also explains why shows like Duck Dynasty, Married with Children, Walker Texas Ranger, Magnum P.I., The Simpsons, South Park, etc have been such long-running successes compared to clearly liberal shows on NBC like The New Normal and Sean Saves the World are ratings disasters and soon cancelled. It could also be why CNN and MNSBC have no audience but Fox News, which liberals think is the worst, is at the top of the ratings with the highest trust factor.
If I had to boil down the quintessential liberal television character it would be Lisa Simpson, and does anyone really like Lisa Simpson? Well, aside from the writers that is. Seriously, every time a Simpsons episode is centered around Lisa’s character, it tends to be the most pretentious, progressive, feminist garbage.
The fact is Ron Swanson is a parody, but the writing and acting is so well done that he is more in touch with a wider audience in a time where more and more Americans are relating to his hate for big government. Maybe that’s a sign.
The food price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs has reached an all-time high in May, according to data from theBureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
In January 1967, when the BLS started tracking this measure, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs was 38.1.
In May 2014, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs was 252.832, the highest level it has been since BLS started tracking these data.
One year ago from today in May 2013, the index was 234.572, meaning that the index has increased 7.78% in one year.
“The index for meats, poultry, fish and eggs has risen 7.7 percent over the span [last year],” says the BLS. “The index for food at home increased 0.7 percent, its largest increase since July 2011. Five of the six major grocery store food group indexes increased in May. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 1.4 percent in May after a 1.5 increase in April, with virtually all its major components increasing,” BLS states.
In addition to this food index, the price for fresh whole chickens hit its all-time high in the United States in May.
In January 1980, when the BLS started tracking the price of this commodity, fresh whole chickens cost $0.70 per pound. By this May 2014, fresh whole chickens cost $1.56 per pound.
A decade ago, in May 2004, a pound of fresh chicken cost $1.04. Since then, the price has gone up 50%.
All the important things in my life cost too much…
Ah yes, because the best person to take economic advice from is a tv character
No, the best person to take economic advice from is obviously someone that hasn’t worked a day in their life.
Nobama is a TV character too… how many times has he been on Oprah and SNL?
You’re right, he is more cartoon character than person nowadays.
