I’m warning you, if you have sympathy that some technologically-challenged people are no longer going to be able to watch “Oprah” or “The Young and the Restless” or “The Price is Right” over their damn rabbit ears…just click the back button now.
“That so many viewers around the country risk losing something as basic as a free television signal is a function, at least in part, of the government’s failure to anticipate that those most affected would be among the nation’s most frail and vulnerable.”
Do we as a society care more about “basic rights” like being able to watch pop culture crap for free than about rights actually enumerated in the Bill of Rights? We’re already seeing an assualt on Rush Limbaugh’s freedom of speech [and by extension, the free expression of all Conservatives]. I can only imagine how badly our Second Amendment rights will be degraded during the course of the Obama administration. Our very safety and sovereignty is at risk on the Southern border and we are changing courses against Islamic terrorism as well. But heaven forbid that these old fogies should have to take responsibility for themselves to ensure that they remain entertained.
