"Jun 15, 2006 — WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush on Thursday signed into law legislation that raises fines tenfold on radio and television broadcasters that violate U.S. decency standards by airing extensive profanity or sexual content.
The new law, which boosts fines to as much as $325,000 per violation from $32,500, could help congressional Republicans woo conservatives in a tough election year as they have faced ebbing support from key core constituencies.
The Christian Coalition had placed legislation to increase the fines as the No. 5 item on its 2006 legislative agenda. The new law also caps any continuing violations from an incident at $3 million."
Well ain't that just fuckin' great? Gas prices have doubled, wages have fallen vs inflation, 2500 great Americans have died in Iraq which remains in apparent chaos, the Fourth amendment is being whittled away by the Supreme Court and ignored altogether by the Justice Dept and NSA, Osama Bin Laden is still running around free and these douchebags have upped the ante in the all important battle to protect people from hearing the word "tit". It's a fuckin' good thing we have this kind of leadership to identify the real problems and lead our country against the dark forces that would cause us all to hear "Tit" on the radio.
A note to the media that can't understand why Bush & Co haven't gotten a poll bump from his recent batch of good news: Maybe the american people expect more out of the White House than just not getting anyone indicted for a week. Maybe we haven't set the bar as low as you ass clowns have.
