    Doesn't the cable company have control of the volume? That's who I've been mad at all these years. I would like to see all volume averaged on all stations. Certainly something that can be done in this day and age. It drives me crazy!

    This... isn't something the Government should have anything to do with. Good Lord we're turning into a pathetic bunch of morons.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You report the solicitor for harassment, I believe.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    But now we can be pathetic morons listening to the likes of Sara Palin without having to reach for the flipper to mute the commercials.

    I don't have TV, but I'm in favor of the bill. It seems fair to the consumer to not be blasted with a higher volume on ads. That seems to be an unscrupulous business practice to me. I also agree with the third option.

    Here's one.

    Though I probably would have been against it at the time, some things the government does actually work out.

    The basis is that the public owns the airwaves, and thus our proxies in congress can regulate how they are used.
    Eschew obfuscation, espouse elucidation.

    I hate the loud commercials too, but I don't think this is a job for the federal government. If people have a problem with the commercials they should just hit the mute button on their remote like I do Come to think of it, I don't get many commercials either since I watch the premium movie channels and get my news from online.
