Tim Allen hints at ‘Last Man Standing’ return

Tim Allen and his popular sitcom is nearing a return to television, according to Page Six. This would be a huge win for conservatives and fans of Allen’s humor and everyman persona.

The show was unexpectedly cancelled in 2016, despite decent ratings. Needless to say, at the time when the show was canned, conservatives cried liberal censorship.

For those unfamiliar with ‘Last Man Standing,’ Allen plays Mike Baxter, a wealthy owner of a chain of outdoor sporting goods stores, who routinely mocks liberal sacred cows of the day.  This despite him living in a house full of women, most of whom regularly espouse liberal views.

In addition, the family as a whole regularly attends church and they truly seem to love one another.

Allen hinted at the show’s return on Twitter:

In stead of ABC, the show would be on FOX for its 7th season and is slated for their 2018-2019 season.

This comes on the massive ratings success that has been Roseanne, another show that routinely mocks all things liberal.

Roseanne Returns with Massive Ratings

One of the 90s most popular shows returned to television last night with over 18 million viewers tuning in. According to ABC, those numbers are the highest rating for a comedy in four years, and even better ratings than NBC’s popular drama, This Is Us.

Roseanne‘s premier episode was heavy on the Hillary zingers and pretty accurately portrayed how some families have been dealing with opposite ends of the voting spectrum ever since the 2016 election: Roseanne voted for Trump but her sister Jackie supported Hillary. Their political differences turned personal, and the two sisters haven’t been speaking since election day.

There are jokes about Russia, fake news, deplorables, p*ssy hats, nasty women and a prayer at the dinner table thanks God for making America great again. Probably the funniest exchange between Roseanne and Jackie ended with Roseanne calling Hillary Clinton a “liar, liar pantsuit on fire!”

Interestingly enough, ABC was also home to Last Man Standing, which many conservatives insisted was canceled because star Tim Allen is a Republican. With the splash Roesanne has made in the ratings, coupled with the fact that Roseanne Barr has openly admitted that she supports President Trump, that really doesn’t appear to be the case. It makes no sense why ABC would cancel Tim Allen’s show because of political reasons, only to bring back a different show. It all came down to money and ratings…and the revival of American Idol.

Will Roseanne have long term success? Who knows, but conservatives seem to be pretty excited about once again having a show on television that caters to their views.

If 18 million people keep tuning in each week, it’s probably a sure bet to continue on the network for quite some time.

So Sen. Ben Sasse is responsible for words Bill Maher said? Seriously?

According to the left and even some on the right, you’re now responsible for the words that come out of someone else’s mouth.  Seriously.

Republican Sen. Ben Sasse appeared on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday night and at one point during the segment Maher, not Sasse used the n-word.  But before we go any further, let me say that yes, I agree, that the word is ugly and divisive.

Did you read that, right?  Maher said the racial slur, not the senator. However, that little fact didn’t stop social justice warriors from swooping in and condemning Sen. Sasse for what Maher said.

Just take a look at responses from mental giants on both sides of the political spectrum.

Are you people serious? A comedian says a racial slur, but somehow it’s the guy’s fault who didn’t say the word? Quick! Let’s begin investigating secondhand racial slur use. It apparently exists, according to some of the geniuses on Twitter.

Now,  several on the left have responded in typical fashion, attempting to hold Sasse responsible for someone else’s words and calling for Maher’s job. Really, now surprise there at all. However, several of the above tweets are from people on the right.  Can you guess which ones?

And I would guess a large number of those on the right criticizing Sasse for his appearance on Maher were/are Trump supporters.  Are you really sure you want to go down this road?

Donald Trump actually said this, not someone else.

Is this now the standard? We’re responsible for what another person says? If so, where does it end? Am I responsible for the thoughts I don’t express? Am I charged for something I didn’t buy? Am I charged for a crime I didn’t commit?

For those of you on the left and sadly, even those on of you on the right who are desperately reaching for something here, Sen. Sasse responded in a series of tweets to your stupidity.

Kathy Griffin: Vile and disgusting display

Generally, comedians are supposed to be funny, right? I mean it’s kinda part of the job. If you’re attempting to be funny and no ones laughing, you’re either watching an episode of Scrubs, the joke didn’t land or you’re just not a good comedian.

On Tuesday, there weren’t a whole lot of people laughing at Kathy Griffin’s uh…latest take on the President of the United States.

Just take a gander at this little piece of comedic gold from the mind of one of the giants of the comedy world.

Yes, you are seeing it correctly. Apparently, Ms. Griffin thought it would be screamingly funny to pose holding what is supposed to be Pres. Trump’s decapitated and bloodied head.

Unfortunately, for Ms. Griffin her “joke” backfired.

Several hours after posting her disgusting, revolting photo, she must have gotten the message because she took it down and posted a video apologizing for her “error in judgment.”

Listen, I get it comedians are supposed to be edgy, push the boundaries of taste. But this went way too far, anyone else who posted something similar would probably have a long chat with the men in black and who knows, she may as well.

But what really boggles the mind, what really is a head scratcher, (no pun intended) is that this is continually the same crowd that is constantly preaching diversity, acceptance and love.

At some point don’t they have to actually practice what they preach?
