Archie Bunker on Obama and liberal progressives....

I love the part where Bunker has the solution to hijackings. He could have prevented 9/11 but people just laughed.

Hat tip Theospark, Texas Rainmaker and Dovethere.

I remeber Archie well, great post!

There are a lot of people 'walking to the poor house' as predicted by Archie...

An the concept of an 'armed and trained airline passenger' would work a LOT better than the whole TSA nonsense.

Hilarious juxtaposition! THanks, Opus.
Don't you love this? Obama says in the video "you might not have CHOSE to make .." Thanks, Harvard...:-)

ARM THE PASSENGERS...! God Bless Archie. And, brother, when I watch it now, I see that liberal underpinning entering into our society as we all laughed and didn't realize the damage.

Have you seen when two black guys rob the Bunker house and they're all there and Meathead keeps talking about how he understands that they're robbing because they were raised poor, etc., and one black guy says "well, LOOKEEE HERE...we have us a GENUINE (long i) LIB-ER-ALL here..." and really laughs at Meathead's 'logic'?
That's the only one in all those episodes that came down on liberals........and it is REALLY funny!

Archie was made to be extreme for the time to mock conservative values and usher in the socialist order. Now look at who's laughing. Now, today, what this show has really done is demonstrate the reality of the socialist left's agenda is baring it's ugly and rotten fruit (for those trees that even still have fruit) for the stupidity and absurdity of the left as Archie's predictions are all coming true (they were written off as lunacy at the time). Airline passengers will do more to stop a terrorist than the TSA (which in it's entire history hasn't stop, prevented or even slowed down one single attack. The closest they came was 9-11 when a detective suspected no good, but was stop by the laaaaaawyers). Just ask those that were on United flight 93 as they were the only one that prevented the terrorists from hitting their target. If one, JUST ONE, was armed, the terrorists would have failed completely as they would had never gotten to the cockpit door. We are all going broke, and we sure aren't secure, much less free.

Opus, Fantastic. ;-)

I heard another good idea too. Bat day, like at baseball games where they give everyone a free bat. Same deal on airliners. Give everyone a bat as they get on the plane - collect at the end. Would you take on that plane with box cutters or broken mirror pieces from the bathroom? I think not.

I miss this show. Great find.

Ever so good.

Archie is spot on! Absolutely brilliant!

I the problem with this is it makes to much sense. We would never get the mentally ill people who are our leaders to go away with it.

Whoa. I've been watching him again on TVLand- he still rules!

The Conservative Lady said...

I loved that show.
(I still can't believe Obama made that 57 state comment.)

Love this clip and miss the golden days of television where shows made you think.

This was awesome. Makes me want to watch all of the old episodes now and see what other brilliant things Archie has to say.

Archie's message to President Toonces: Stifle!

..as usual, your post was timely and the comments of your readership superb.

As one commenter pointed out, this was hgihly sarcastic of the so-called right-wing thought back in the 70s. Norm Lear -- raging liberal that he is -- hearing how those words ring so true today, is probably squirming.

Wait, what am I saying? He's a lib; he probably doesn't even comprehend the situation. Like Arch said, "Dead from the neck up."
