ZeroCorpse: Think about it: You're paying ridiculous fees to watch people throw balls and stuff. You could watch that for free in the local playground, or cheaper in lesser league venues, but for some reason it's more compelling when millionaires are doing it and the shows are padded by lots of beer and car commercials.

That's like saying it's ridiculous to pay for a Broadway play when I can watch my 6 year old nephew act out his videogames.

Notabunny: Yup. I don't know how many channels we have. 300 or so, I guess. I think we generally watch 3, or maybe 4.

I guess TV just bores me. I mean why sit there and watch something when you can do that and a ton of other shiat on the internet? I mean I can watch How It's Made or NCIS for hours but nothing else holds my attention like that not even movies. The older I get it seems the more ADD like I get....ooooh a butterfly!
/Still mad TW in my area doesn't have AMC
//Gonna call them again before the premiere of Breaking Bad like I did last year.

Looks like the cable lobby was late in paying its bill.

Why do Republican keep meddling in the affairs of private business? McCain's bill pretty much turns these cable companies into state run media. If he forces them to control what they sell and how they sell it, how is this not a government take over of the cable companies?
