    This is reminiscent of a science fiction book (I forget the name or the author) I read, back in the early '70's. in the book, an inventor became famous for inventing "Adnix", a device which, when attached to the TV set, muted all commercials. Advertisers were up in arms over it, but to no avail. But the inventor's downfall was when he invented another device called "Preachnix", which muted everything said by televangelists, and that just pissed off too many people. LOL.

    Contact by Carl Sagan! That was my thought too.
    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).

    I personally applaud this. Like apdst said, as long as Congress is worrying about this, BCS playoffs, MLB steroids, putting calorie counts on fast food menus, etc...then they can't screw up anything important.

    I think even a liberal has the mental capacity to apply pressure on the correct button to execute the desired result. Then again, maybe not.

    By such measure, the FCC shouldn't be allowed to regulate anything on the airwaves licenses its sells. Oh wait. That means that broadcasters could show anything they wanted. THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!!

    So you'd be okay with barring the FCC from regulating anything on the airwaves then?

    So you'd be okay with graphic sex shown on prime time? After all, "We have become a nation of little girls, and are deserving of the government we currently have."

    No one says you have to watch it.

    Let's see just how hypocritical you can get. I recently bought a new hypocritimeter. Let's see just how far up the measure you can go.
