Here's your Web allowance. Don't use it on porn

Isn’t it enough that the government thinks they know better than us when it comes to spending our entertainment dollars? In February, they’re making our perfectly adequate faux wood-paneled TVs obsolete by cramming free digital TV down our throats.

Now that meddling FCC wants to tell us what to do — or rather what we can’t do — with our free broadband … if and when we ever get it. Naturally, the agency that brought us Janet Jackson’s Nipplegate doesn’t want you lookin’ at pornography.

Id like to know if they are going to provide free haul away service for all these old tv's that will now end up on the curb...

Ive opted for the little converter box's as my lcd screens are not that old...

OUCH this could be more complicated then Vista  :big:  :tthumbup:

We have Converters to buy and land fills to fill and the worry about a Lame Duck Imposing civil rights....

We could take all the old TV sets and build massive amplifiers So we can Talk to Venus.. Maybe reach Pluto..
Afterall Tubes make great amplifiers with all the stored energy.

There will be new Jobs at all the retirment homes and nusing homes and Retireee homes taking time to hook up and explain why the Old timer has to turm on the box with the TV so they can watch TV and why they need to tune in there connection to Fox and CBS using the little box and leaving there TV on Channel 4 or 3.

Then Since HDTV has an additional 10 second delay We have to worry about what the FCC will do when someone bleeps out the Word "Fart" which really is a word your not allowed to say on open broadcast TV...

WELL I think I have a new thing in life to do.. I think I'll offer my services gwetting people on open broadcast Satellite.. OH Wait isnt that something the FCC wants to eliminate since the Supreme Court Said anything caught in open broadcast is free to the public to veiw or listen in on..

But more importantly mow we can have several open broadcast channels between 0 and 66 channels. Like 7.1 and 7.2

As for the porn that was started by some Arche luk in New York and backed up by Verizon who just hasnt figured it out yet.

Blocking the internet to protect us dosnt work... and just makes it better for the Crackers to hit us harder with more malware.
