US Senate committee passes FCC indecency bill
To clarify people's misconceptions.
Edit: Apology to Oppoman for sucking the big one.
It overturns the Appeals Court's ruling on the FCC, but then someone will bring this new law in front of the same Appeals Court, and the court will throw out the law, possibly.
Gotta love American legal technicalities. :icon_roll
Won't someone please think of the children!!! They heard a bad word, EVERYBODY PANIC!!
Senator John Rockefeller D-WV....just so everyone knows that it isn't only crazy Republicans. The Fox V FCC case is being heard by the Supreme Court, and as we all know the Supreme Court makes laws now, so we still may be ok.
I think we can all agree that the FCC's policies stink, but it's nothing to whine about now. It's the corporate indecency policies that need to be fought, as they go way further than the FCC. It's like having cancer and a sore anus, and complaining about the sore anus.
:clap: Now I smell coffee from snorting it after reading that. Thank you sir.
Both parties have a tendency to restrict free speech these days. The conservatives restrict speech of a sexual nature as well as profanity, and the liberals restrict racial speech and such.
The FCC is full of shit, fuck them. There's worse things in the world then if little innocent 3 year old Timmy hears the word fuck.
That is exactly what the left is constantly clamoring for, more censorship. YAYYYYYY, we did it again!!!!
I have no idea why I ever voted for a Democrat. I really feel like a rube right now.
Well, we know that words hurt
And think about it .... the child who heard the word fuck at the age of 3 could wind up being the sexually confused teenager who blows away his classmates when he's 15...or hearing that word could "turn" him gay
How is that a technicality?
Republicans and Democrats stink equally.
Senator John Rockefeller is a cunt
I love the way that people Say think of the children.."I don't want my kids to here swear words on TV you fuck tard" :icon_roll
I heard more swearing and cussing from my parents then I ever heard on TV
Thank God the federal govt is here to protect us. Lets just keep enjoying the Internet until they find a way to fuck this up too.
My wife is pregnant and I heard a swear word tonight at the bar in ear shot of her belly. I want a law that allows me to prosecute for utterances in close proximity to the womb.
hrump hrump hrump
(or how ever you spell that word)
In the interest of decency, can't there be some kind of penalty that doesn't end up with the government getting money? They call us sinners for drinking, smoking or gambling and yet they have no problem taxing it to death. These people stink. I also have news for little Tommy's parents. There's a much better chance he's actually been fucked than hearing the word on T.V. or radio.
Also, If your kids don't hear profanity. How will they know what to call politicians when they grow up?
I don't know if the Senate will approve this or not...I imagine Fox and friends could pour some money into the fray.
That is clever... and perhaps line of the thread.
Let's home school all of our children. You know, since school is the place they hear those "naughty" words for the first and many more times than the radio.
i'm sure the first place they hear those words is out of their own parents' mouths. aside from ultra religious shitbags i've never met a person who doesn't swear. they may not do it as much as i do but it slips sometimes (which is exactly what fucking happened here, a "fleeting explitive").
also, fleeting explitives only happen on live programs like award shows or news programs. Award shows always air in prime time and if these people are so worried about shielding their children from these explitives then they shouldn't allow their children to watch live award shows. The FCC has said that they won't fine news programs who air fleeting explitives because they are a "bona fide" news program, because the words mean different things because one is used on an award show and one is used on the news. fuck means fuck no matter what channel it's said on.
In summary: The FCC are a bunch of hypocritical shitheals, parents should take care of their own goddamn kids, and they are just words so go fuck yourselves
Meh. I for one know that I heard cursing and cursed regularly well before ever hearing either of my parents cursing. Either way, I agree, fuck the FCC and everyone else that allows it to go against the 1st Amendment.
