He’s not even in office yet and the fears of ridiculous bleeding heart liberalism I have feared for many months is already starting.
For well over a year, and probably closer to 2 years the American public has been informed of the required transition to digital TV signals broadcast over the air. If you’ve been alive the past several months you know about this! And for MOST people, it doesn’t mean a thing – we have cable, or satellite or a brain and got a converter box a year ago. Every TV station can’t go more than 12 minutes without mentioning it, it’s on the radio every 9 seconds. It’s in newspapers and magazines everywhere!
So if you don’t know that on February 17th, 2009 analog TVs will no longer be able to receive the over-the-air signal from TV stations in your city if you don’t have a converter box (or a cable, or a TV built in this century) one of two things are true….
You are either too stupid to watch TV or too lazy to watch TV. Either way – it’s YOUR FAULT!!!!
I can’t stress that enough – it’s YOUR FAULT – why should the government take care of you if you can’t take care of yourself? Oh wait – that’s why you elected Obama.
The government has handed out vouchers so your poor, lazy, stupid asses don’t have to even pay for this upgrade to the 21st century here in 2009 and you still haven’t gotten your converter box then you deserve to watch a blank screen starting February 18th. The good news is that if you’re too stupid or lazy to have not gotten off your couch long enough to get your converter in the last two years a blank screen will probably entertain you just fine.
So now, even after the government has done everything possible short of coming to your house for you and giving you a new digital TV with a digital antenna or giving you a bailout for free cable (I’m sure some of you are still waiting for this) Obama wants to give you more time. Are you f-ing kidding me! This is just the start of the downfall of this nation led by the bleeding heart left. After months and months and months and I suspect millions of dollars to make abundantly clear to everyone the need for a converter box by February 17th, 2009 the government has to hold your hand even longer to take care of you. Dear god, what’s going to happen when it’s something more important than TV???
I’m flabergasted at even the thought of further extending the deadline for the digital TV transition. It makes me angry just thinking about it. It’s beyond ridiculous. Does Obama really think the morons that haven’t gotten their converter box, or government handout for a converter box by now that they’ll really do it with an extension??? Of course they won’t. They’re still waiting for the government to show up at their house, leave a pile of money, give them cable and a digital television that those of us who work hard, and actually pay our bills and our taxes can cover the cost of. Welcome to Socialism and the Obama years.
Maybe if I can’t beat them, I’ll join them….where’s my damn Ice Cream!
