Legislating good parenting:
Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas), head of the House Commerce Committee, said cable and broadcast TV "ought to play on the same field. If we can work out the constitutional questions, I'd be supportive of that."
Once again, bunch of hypocrites.... Regarding his indecency bill, Joe Barton discusses the possibility of regulating premium cable (Sopranos, etc.) -- this despite households knowingly paying for such content. I suppose more safeguards (coming from government) are needed for the innocent kids in the house. Uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't these the same bunch of a-holes who incessantly whine about how the government is too large, too oppressive, too much into our lives? And the same morons who regularly criticize minorities and/or poor families for not pulling themselves up by the bootstraps and to not rely on the government to help out with parenting, raising their families, etc.?

It's the same old same old, the hypocritical card game they like to play -- to the point where it has to be a psychotic condition.
