    I like how the majority here approve of this court rule. Which helps explain that the majority do not care for violence on tv. And that really this whole FCC indecency rule was a bunch of crap. But I bet you nothing will come of this ruling. Many of the news media outlets are owned by conservatives with family values.

    I am a conservative with family values and I think this is a great ruling. Like I said before it is the parents job to decide what is appropriate for their kids to watch not the all knowing government.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Since TV is not a right and Free Speech is, I too am completely in favor of this ruling. I have often suggested to people that they sell their TV if they don't like what is shown. They look at me like I'm crazy. I love it when they do that, because I am certain that it is them that are 'crazy'.

    There should be a word for "Fear of not owning a TV".
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    But the all knowing government is all knowing due to conservatives with family values.

I think networks should rate their shows or movies they show according to the rules already established. R means swear words, nudity, violence, PG-13 means whatever that means, etc, etc.
    I hate that editing as well. I like your idea of rating shows according to rules already established. With cable, parents can effectively screen those shows. And they should. I posted earlier it's a blow to family values and others disagreed. The rating system would make me happy, though.

    TV shows are already rated, and this isn't a blow to family values. Turn off the TV and go outside and play with your kids for god's sake. You don't need to be plopped down in front of the idiot box (and that term is becoming more and more accurate as the number of reality TV programs increase) to have quality time with your children.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I agree with the ruling even though I hate really foul language like the F word. Let the free market work. If things get too vulgar, I'll change channels or turn it off.

    Technically, Luddite would fit.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
