Some Americans Would Miss Child's Birth To Watch Super Bowl

Some Americans Would Miss Child's Birth To Watch Super Bowl

"Anybody who watches three football games in a row should be declared brain dead."

How important is the Super Bowl to some Americans? Well, according to a recent survey, some fans of the sport would be willing to miss the birth of their own child to see the event!

The survey, sponsored by CouponCabin.com, revealed the following:

  • 15% of U.S. adults (men) would rather watch the Super Bowl than to experience the miracle of watching their child being born.
  • 21% said they would shirk important work responsibilities in order to see the game.
  • 20% admitted they would miss the wedding of a close friend.
  • 19% said they would even miss attending the funeral of a loved one to cheer on the sport of football!
The survey was conducted with 2,625 U.S. adults and 37% of those agreed that the Super Bowl was the most important major sporting event. Among some of the reasons for attending the Super Bowl event were:
  • Love for the NFL (47%)
  • watching the game primarily for the commercials (37%)
  • the fun of attending a Super Bowl party (33%)
As if that is not disturbing enough, most of these same football fanatics are the ones who have no problem smashing out windows and attacking innocent bystanderswhen their favorite team loses, and yet say nothing of the corruption taking place in the White House or at the Local Federal Reserve Bank!
These same drooling fanatics are probably ignorant of the fact that about 50% of fruits from their labor is stolen from them by federal, state, and local taxes each year!
"For more than six months of every year the average American toils not for his family, for his needs, or for his future. No, for the first six months of the year the average American works to pay the cost of federal, state, and local taxes and regulations. From New Year's Day until about the 4th of July, you worked to pay for government. This is unconscionable." - Congressman Ron Paul
I reckon it is safe to say that these same people will usually refuse to discuss politics, however, because it is a "touchy subject", but will turn around and bash a fellow spectator who may cheer for the opposing team!
While there is certainly a large number of Americans attending the events in person, a great majority watch these sporting events through their televisions.
(This year’s overnight from NBC)

In general, the U.S. came at a tie with the UK in the amount of time the average person watches television in a week. Both in the UK, and the United States, a person sits in front of the Boob-tube on an average of 28 hours per week.
If the average Joe on the street would skip out on the birth of his own child to see grown men running around on a field throwing a ball around while slapping each other's backsides-  is it any wonder they tolerate spy street cameras, Vipr Teams on the streetsDrones surveilling our citiesoppressive legislation, and corrupt Representatives in the White House, along with the Syndicate Banksters and Wall Street hoodlums? If he will choose football over watching his child being born, do you think he will give a second thought to the fact that this same child will grow up in a Police State controlled by International Bankers? I doubt it.
Sadly, while "Rome burns", we are more concerned with the gladiator games...
I will leave you with this sobering statement from a 1976 film called "The Network", which sums it up best:
So, you listen to me. Listen to me: Television is not the truth! Television is a God-damned amusement park! Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, side-show freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We're in the boredom-killing business! So if you want the truth... Go to God! Go to your gurus! Go to yourselves! Because that's the only place you're ever going to find any real truth.

Americans are el disgusto. We are such a selfish backstabbing bunch us Americans. We may have a seemingly free society compared to others but we really are some of the worst of the species. Even people in our own movement are filthy egocentric pigs. It's all about a following and false realities. 

Lol I can't help but laugh at how ignorant these fools are. Even some of the sheep think themselves to be shepherds when deep down they are lost wolves with no pack to claim subordinance.

I can honestly say that I did not watch any football games this year other than a few minutes of a Texans game.  As a lifelong football fan, I was amazed that I did not miss it one iota..
