The Best Thing the Government Ever Shoved Down America's Throat

As of February 17, 2009 America's regular old TVs didn't work anymore, and that's fine with me. My new digital TV is way more better:

-the converter box only cost about 50 bucks.

-I didn't have to pay the 50 bucks because I'm poor so the government paid for it.

-The optional antenna for extra money works much of the time allowing you to watch TV in digital.

-The new digital standard was approved by Bush and enforced by Obama, making it a true bipartisan throating.

-You only need 6 cords to make the thing work unless you own a vcr, in which case you will need an additional power cord for the vcr.

-The constant glitches and zaps are a fun addition to my regular neural spasms.

I did't have to upgrade my system again until 2013.

Digital TV is awesome. It's one of the best things the government ever made me do.

No TV for 19 years

I bought a big, fine widescreen television in 1995. The way I know it was 1995 is that I remember watching the verdict of the OJ trial. (I just now googled it.) The next day, a burglar took the TV and my stereo while I was at work. No insurance.

I built a better stereo system DIY, but I never got around to replacing the TV. Life was great until the internet filled up with videos for me to waste time watching on my computer.

Apparently this is an old post....

but since you brought it up....I cancelled my cable in NOV 2008, right after Obama was elected. I saw what they did to Ron Paul and could not continue to pay to be brain washed. Six years...best thing I've ever done.

**NO MORE WAR!

It was supposed to be funny or something.

Sorry.
