    Hmmm, this must be another Bush plot to take over the media... This media control issue is being driven by Bush, right? Oh, wait, did that say "D" as in Democrat?

    From a First Amendment standpoint, we continue to believe that there are less intrusive means to accomplish the objectives sought by this amendment.

    I think we should remove the first amendment. So many stupid people quote it while having no idea what it is, I think the only way to make that stop is to get rid of it.

    No, I don't seriously advocate that. But I'm tired of fat cats hiding behind political protections. It's like stealing candy from the poor.

    Sen. Hollings also introduced an amendment that would have required cable operators to offer their programming a la carte-allowing consumers to buy and pay for only the programming they want.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Now why are not more of our representatives fighting for this? I hate that I have to pay for channels I don't want. I have like 50 channels, and I only want 10.


    Can't really say how I feel about this. I think it's great that they're making an attempt to reduce purposeless sociologically detrimental programming, but it's a little weird that you might not be able to pay for it, either. Applying the rules across the board does make sense, broadcast or subscription service, but it's a gray line.

    The only logical explanation has to be that Bush had the Secret Service fly to SC in a black helicopter to drug Senator Hollings with a top secret mind control substance that the Pentagon has invented at Nellis AFB. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    It is not driven by Bush. Any chance Bush has to silence someone who talks bad about him (Like Howard Stern with a faithful 15+ million audience) he is gonna jump on it. Our entire government, dem and rep, is going bad. Why do they want to have so much control over every type of media outlet?

    Exactly, that way it will reduce the risk of us ever hearing anything bad that they do. I recall hearing of tv like this somewhere, I can't remember where though... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    That's what the existing Eisenhower Interstate system is for. No joke, either, the intention was to have strategic accessibility to every part of the country for artillery and supply vehicles in case of an invasion on any border. I learned that in history and was a little skeptical, but then while researching nuclear stuff, I found that we had missile launchers on semi's driving around the interstate's, set up to look like commercial trucks for a while. No idea if it's still happening.
    Pretty fascinating, some of the things that come out years later. Who knew that during the cold war??

    Next thing you know, they are going to make it illegal to show nudity in porn /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif. I believe either China or Japan, their porn is regulated and they cannot show any male/female genetalia (sp?). Looks like we are slowly next. I seriously wish the FCC would learn to screw off and let us people as Americans judge for ourselves what is right and wrong to listen/watch.

    They USED to regulate porn and not show --pubic hair-- and at times genetalia, now it's not really an accepted taboo anymore, so it all goes

    Believe me, the Japanese consume and produce FAR more "depraved" material than we ever will, and at the same time have a much lower rate of rape and murder..... of course there are the truck drivers who pee on the streer and subway perverts

    the media is a crock of crap, it seems like only negative stories or cobbled together by the media, rarely ever positive, and alot of the times innacurate too

    Liberty is freedom, freedom thrives in a society populated by self governing men . Freedom is not a license for licentiousness, but to be trusted to rule yourself wisely.

    Fast forward to 2004.

    Oh yeah, thats why we now have zillions of laws and a zillion law enforcement officers. Oh, and do not forget the overcrowded prisons! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
