First of all, I want to make clear that the US holds a dear place in my heart. I've lived in several US cities, and intend to move back next year. Hopefully I will be able to get a proper visa, and not have to exit the country every 90 days. Why doesn't your bankrupt government want my tax dollars? OK, now that my allegiance is established, I want to share my grief. I believe in personal responsibility and freedom. I guess one could classify me as a libertarian, but I'm not really fond of labels. I hate people telling what I can or cannot do, and I like to think that I can take care of myself. Why does the FCC censor artistic expressions (yes, considering the state of TV today, I am using that term extremely loosely)? Why do I have be protected against "bad" words? I can buy guns at the supermarket, but I can't hear an uncensored joke at 1130 PM? It seems the bastards even dub instead of simply bleeping/muting? Doesn't all of this go against the First Amendment? I must admit that this gave me a little hope, but it seems to have resulted in nothing: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/14/business/media/14indecent.html?_r=1 I rarely swear myself, but I find it highly offensive that someone has the right to alter the content of a program. Why isn't this pissing off a nation of freedom-lovers? I don't get it?
