Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

  1. "Do you pray for the Senators, Dr. Hale?" someone asked the chaplain. "No, I look at the Senators and pray for the country."    -- Edward Everett Hale
Do you remember last year? The FCC was very busy fining Howard Stern Janet Jackson and I can’t remember who else, but there were a lot of them.

     The FCC must have strained a regulatory muscle because they have yet to levy one fine in 2005. Gee, no election.

     The FCC hasn’t been idle though. There are hundreds of complaints waiting for the commissioners to rule on. They have been busy consulting with the religious right and lining up support in the Congress to extend their authority to dictate standards of conduct to cable channels such as Comedy Central (the Daily Show) and HBO ( Real Time, The Sopranos and a lot of other shows) all have either liberal views or use the same language that occurs in real life. They also want to pretend sex never happens.

     If they are successful you will get to go back to the Dick Van Dyke show and other vanilla pap.

I pay $160.00 a month for my cable and broadband connection. I’ll will make it plane to Adelphia that if I can’t have the content that I have become accustomed to I will not pay there price gouging rates.

     The cable and satellite industry’s have already put in place systems that allow a parent to block content they don’t want in there homes. On top of that is the V Chip in most Televisions. I think that it is designed to allow outside blocking in addition to its advertised use.

     Hey I worked for the government for enough years to know that they are capable of anything.
