Ban TikTok? Come on Congress, spend your time doing something more constructive to make life better in America.
I love TikTok. I’m on it almost every day, posting a video such as review of food and drinks, being at events, a Drinking Tip Of The Day or even trivia on sports and cocktails on both the PubClub and a new 72 hours account on top travel destinations.
But TikTok is more than just a posting platform. It’s an entertainment one, which most evenings has a lot better programming than the crap on TV. It’s a heck of a lot more than bouncing blonde coeds – although that is quite enjoyable, up to a point anyway; I mean, I was never much of a window shopper if you know what I mean – and mostly I watch videos of classic bands and comedians.
A cool feature is I never know what’s next until I scroll to the next video. I’ll go from a Bill Burr standup routine to Elvis. Dave Chappelle and Eddie Murphy to Lynyrd Skynrd to the Eagles. Most of these videos are from live performances, which to me is the best way to watch those performers.

I laugh like crazy at Rodney Dangerfield’s guest appearances on the Tonite Show (Johnny Carson era) and throughly enjoy old videos of classic bands and songs such as the Beatles and Lyin’ Eyes live by the Eagles (I paid attention to the lyrics of this song for the first time because of TikTok and the line about “I suppose every refuge has its price” is a classic one because it’s true). There are also behind-the-scenes clips and interviews.
So Congress, don’t take my TikTok away.
