My Last "Fifty Shades Of Grey" and Mark Davis Post

Not Mark Davis



I mention him from time to time, but most of you probably have no idea who Mark Davis is.    He was on WBAP until Cumulus wouldn't renew his contract at a price they could agree on, sat out a year, and then ended up on 660 The Answer which has a fraction of the listenership of WBAP.

Hey, the guy is a good talk show host. He's smart. He's logical. And I don't think he says stuff just to rile up his right wing listenership like Hannity, Limbaugh or the mind numbing Dennis Prager. I think Davis believes everything that he says.  That's why I find him so curious as of late.

He's really gone off the deep end over the last five years, and this video blog above is a perfect example.  I've never read the book Fifty Shades, and I doubt if I'll see the movie unless I run across it on cable two years from now. However, I've read a few of the (horribly written) passages so I know the gist. Is the content objectionable? Well, I guess so if you've never turned on Cinemax at midnight. Is it demeaning to women? Only if you think any woman reading the book or going to the movie is too stupid to make decisions for herself. Should people be told to not see it? Only if you think you're a father figure for the population.  What should be put on the big screen for entertainment: Chris Kyle shooting a little boy or a bondage scene? You tell me. Of all things to be angry about in this world, should this movie be one of them? Yes. Right behind running out of paper towels in the kitchen.

My favorite part is around 4:00 when Davis instructs men to "Sit your woman down".

I think he was inferring....

"Sit your woman down... tie her to the chair... and then..."

Barry's whole belief system was rocked when he first heard Prager. Now Barry is in deep denial while clinging to his flawed leftist ideology.

If my wife sees that movie, I'll have to spank her....on a regular basis.

I've met Davis a couple of times at luncheons and found him to be genial and witty.

Also, can't help chuckling when I remember standing a few steps behind on one of the water slide steps at NRH20 about 15 years ago. He was shirtless, and more out of shape than me, but he didn't put on any airs.

Don't know what your problem is with this. I'm certainly not a fan of his, but, all I see him doing is suggesting treating your ladies with respect and encouraging them to respect themselves. What is this, Barry? A leftist 'War on Women'?!!!

I'm sure the "horrible, nasty" Koran has the phrase "sit your woman down...." in it too. Funny how close in beliefs radical Muslims and republicans are.

Is it any more pornographic than American Sniper?

We hear (read) your hot opinions on Davis, Prager, Rush, et al, but have you listened to Michael Savage on BAP in the late afternoon slot?

I'm conservative, but that guy is - to borrow a phrase - "straight up nuts".

Show me a woman with a strong father and I will show you a strong woman, show me a woman without a strong father and I will show you a stripper.

Re: Mark Davis... Methinks he doth protest too much.

I don"t care if adults read/watch it.
I am deeply disturbed by preteens/teens reading the books. And if your kids go to school, they've read at least parts of it.

Surely you jest and meant to say gist...

Sadly, he has lost it, though yes he was previously smart, funny and insightful.

But now? He has lost his mind.
