Indecency Complaints Come from One Group, Says Report
The startling rise in indecency complaints -- from fewer than 350 in 2000and 2001 to 14,000 in 2002 to 240,000 in 2003 -- was attributed Sunday toa single activist group, the Parents Television Council, part of L. BrentBozell's conservative Media Research Center. Mediaweek reported that anFCC analysis of the complaints dated Oct. 1, 2004 found that 99.9 percentof all indecency complaints had been brought by the PTC. The tradepublication's report came only two days after FCC Chairman Michael Powellwrote in a New York Times Op-Ed article: "Advocacy groups do generate manycomplaints, as our critics note, but that's not unusual in today'sInternet world...that fact does not minimize the merits of the groups'concerns." But Jonathan Rintels, head of the Center for Creative Voices inMedia, an artists' advocacy group, told Mediaweek that its report demonstrates how "a tiny minority with a very focused political agenda istrying to censor American television and radio."No surprise here: America is full of fascists and mini-Hitlers.

Is there even a reason we vote anymore?
Here's another post I read on http://www.Slashdot.org, which summarizes how I feel quite well (but note that i do vote, usually Libertarian):
Is there even a reason we vote anymore.
In a word, no.
Democracy was a great experiment but now it's dead.
The vast majority of the pupulation of the US now lives in a house district where the candidate from one party wins overwhelmingly. The party made sure the district got drawn that way.
The vast majority of Americans now live in a state which always votes for the candidate of one party for president.
The vast majority of Americans live in a state who always votes for the senator from one party.
In America anyway (the supposed birthplace of democracy) vast majority of votes don't really matter.
Finally the politicians have perfected the art of manipulating the masses. They know what buttons to push to get you to vote for them.
For example when the next election cycle comes up the people will completely ignore this case and will instead vote purely on guns, abortion, homosexual marriage, or some other wedge issue. The fact that they are getting fleeced never occurs to them when somebody claims that joe shmoe will take away their guns or end (or begin) abortion.
