HR3687 - The Bleeping Game


A new bill is sitting in the house of Representatives, authored by Representative Doug Ore (Republican-Sacramento). The only real difference in the bill from what is already in place, is that it increase the fine to television networks/stations when they don't bleep out a word that is offensive to some (regardless if it is daytime soaps or late night adult entertainment, or shows that many parents would never let their children watch in the first place.) It reads, it part, " As used in this section, the term 'profane', used with respect to language, includes the words 's___', 'piss', 'f___', 'c___', 'a__h___', and the phrases 'c___s_____', "motherf_____', and 'a__h___', compound use (including hyphenated compounds) of such words and phrases with each other or with other words of phrases and other grammatical forms of such words and phrases (including verb, adjective, gerund, participle, and infinitive forms.)" But, this is an election year. And some are wanting the FCC to have something to do since this administration has taken all of the teeth out of the FCC that had prevented corporations of making a monopoly out of the broadcast business. As Tim Goodman reports in the San Francisco Chronicle (1/19/04) " Instead of adding more nonsensical legislation (remember, Republicans, smaller government) how about a bill that says, in part, "The FCC will no longer be allowed to let gigantic media companies monopolize the airwaves. If they do we will take their mother_______ a__ out to the woodshed and beat the f______ s___ out of them for p______ away their obligation to protect the average citizen from corporate c___s_____s. I'd vote for that."

What about legislating those words off the playground and out of the teachers lounge, and out of the kitchen and garage? Would you (the reader) vote for that?
