Legislation to turn down the volume on those loud TV commercials that send couch potatoes diving for their remote controls looks like it'll soon become law.
The Senate unanimously passed a bill late Wednesday to require television stations and cable companies to keep commercials at the same volume as the programs they interrupt.
Which, to me, is a good thing. I watch my tv on the internet these days but this sounds like a really good idea. I've seen a few people on the internet complain, though. That this is "big government regulating tv stations" what? Really?
The senate, votes UNANIMOUSLY to do something good for the people of America and you bitch? Honestly? Who cares if it's a minor issue, it's a fucking annoying one for anyone who actually still watches tv commercials.
This is probably the most bipartisan thing that they've done in a LONG time and you're going to shit on it? THIS is the fight you're going to pick with "big government" ?
Give me a break. I'm not saying this is the highest standard we should hold our government too, but don't look a gift horse in the mouth. I WANT the government to enact regulation that helps the people. You know, the government, of the people, by the people, for the people? Yeah, this is what they should be doing.
If you're the kind of person bothered by this, I hope they vote next to make the lettering on pringles cans larger, just to piss you off.
