Poor people have big TVs.. Rich people have big libraries…

Hi all,
 I h’ve been receiving daily inspirational mail from for quite few years. Even though I’m not a christian, I really love those daily mails carrying interesting stuff about our daily personal things and morals, which will make my day often. This post is also related to today’s post on Big TV.
This post is followed by my : Decided to giveup TV – Yes
Src: Today’s Inspirational mail from carries news on ANTI Tv. I love it, hope you like this..
Big TV?
Dr. James Twitchell, author of The Carnival Culture, says that in our culture "the average boy or girl will spend more time in front of the electronic babysitter by the time they are age six than they will in conversation with their father …for the REST OF THEIR LIVES."
The average male in the United States will not read a single book cover to cover after they leave high school.
The average person spends four hours a day watching television.
       So, if you live to be 72 years old, that’s a dozen years of your life you will spend watching OTHER people become millionaires.
Zig Ziglar calls TV the "income reducer and the morality buster."
Jim Rome says that "poor people have big TVs, rich people have big libraries.
Gene Roddenbery, the creator of Star Trek, was giving a commencement address at Indiana University.  He said, "Television exists for one reason and one reason only."    To entertain?  To inform?  To educate?
"No, to SELL you something."   Think about it!
What you say..? do you want to watch others becoming rich or really going to push yourself..DECIDE. Really it makes sense…
