    I used their compose page (http://capwiz.com/parentstv/issues/alert/?alertid=11159811&type=CO) to write a letter to my congressmen on how I think TV should remain free. Here is another example of these fuckin idiots that are trying to remove "all evil" from our lives. I think we should use their forums to contact our leaders (since they already have all the email address's in their system) to let our reps. in Washington know how we feel about free speech.

    I'm in, but can I make 2 suggestions? They have a pre-made template to make it easier for people to submit complaints. Think about it: if all of the complainers had to sit there and type it out, the majority of them wouldn't do it. Since they just have to go to the site, put in their info and click "send", then it's so easy, that a caveman.....er......an asshole can complain.

    My suggestions:

    #1 Someone should draft a complaint form that the pests can copy/cut from here and paste it into their form. If it's already done, more of "us" assholes will do it too, and them more do, the better.

    #2 Contact Debbie at PAC. I don't know if she'd want to get involved, at all, but she's the expert. ;)

    An outline on points to be hit would be better, and then write your own letter from that. Form letters- especially form e-mails- are a sure way NOT to get heard. Right in the "circular file." And it's always best to get an actual address & send a personally-written "snail mail" letter: The extra effort involved makes you look serious, crazy, or both.

    But I thought PTC got all its muscle from massive quantities of form emails?

    I've never been to the website before. First thing I noticed the prominence was the donate links, always there on the left side of the screen. And even though it's 2008, they'll tell you how to complain - sorry, "contact" UPN and the WB.

    From their form letter:
    "Even more shocking, we’ve also heard two prominent actresses – Dianne Keaton on Good Morning America, and Jane Fonda on the Today show – uttering four letter words on morning talk shows!"

    Prominent actresses? What year is this?

    Put in my thoughts.....

    I added to the crap I left thier nonsense then added mine lmfao




    As you know, the Supreme Court announced today it will hear an appeal of the Second Circuit Court's ruling that the current broadcast indecency laws don't apply to so-called "fleeting profanity." Profanity is by its nature fleeting, so this ruling has effectively authorized virtually all use of profanity on broadcast radio and TV, at any time, day or night. And the broadcasters are taking full advantage of the opportunity.

    In just the last few weeks, we’ve seen strippers in tassels, and naked women running through a gambling casino on prime time television. Even more shocking, we’ve also heard two prominent actresses – Dianne Keaton on Good Morning America, and Jane Fonda on the Today show – uttering four letter words on morning talk shows! TV and radio broadcasters now believe they can air this kind of material whenever they like, as often as they like.

    And guess what? That was our right to watch it...If we didn't like it we have the FULL right to change the channel and watch something a little more tame...

    It is a sad day in America when lazy parents use values as an excuse to not PARENT! There are plenty of options for parents who don't want to view such materials they run ads all day and night for all the help parents have to help protect thier kids from all the "evil" of T.V.. The sad thing is is that these same parents that complain are simply too LAZY to actually do anything about it other than send e-mails....

    Meanwhile the rest of America who are tired of being laughed at by actual free countries(when it comes to speech, entertainment and so much more). Other countries seem to be able to watch what they want or don't want without issue, yet when one person writes a letter theres firings and other nonsense.

    I think it is a little silly that people don't change channels period...Can we start handing the right to free speech and who listens or watches it into the hands of the consumer and not just a group of angry parents who spend thier time looking to get good things taken away from people they don't agree with?


    I can’t wait for the Supreme Court to act sometime next year for the FCC to stop the flood of sexually graphic and profane content coming into my home on a nightly basis. As a constituent, I'm asking you to act now, and do whatever you can to promote the passage of S. 1780, the Protecting Children from Indecent Programming Act. This bill will clarify the intent of Congress that no broadcaster be permitted to place indecent language and images on the air when we know millions of children are in the audience.

    I urge you in the strongest possible terms to express your support for the FCC's vigorous enforcement of the broadcast decency laws. Without your action now, the increase in broadcast indecency fines passed two years ago is essentially meaningless. An announcement from your office that you will work to promote passage of S. 1780 would go along way. I hope I can look forward to seeing you take action.

    "
    Congress needs to act now to protect children from indecent material on the public airwaves by immediately voting on S.1780, a bill that allows the FCC to stop so-called 'fleeting' instances of broadcast indecency. "

    UGH,
    I think the correction should be that "parent's should stop passing the buck of raising their child to the government and media." Perhaps controll in the house is a more severe matter that should be addressed.
