My husband and I were talking and I don't even know how we got onto this but why is it that the government is giving out coupons for the digital converter boxes so everyone can watch T.V yet people have to go and buy their carbon monoxide and smoke detectors? Wouldnt government funds be better used trying to save lives instead of providing entertainment?
Just a thought.

When special interest grops and government involvement wins, we all pay. That is why less government involvement in EVERYTHING is better. The National Telecommunications and Information Administration working with broadcast and consumer electronics industries, have managed to convince the government this is what is needed. Sidebar: If you have cable or satelite, you won't be effected. It's only if you use an antenna for your tv channels. The cheapest you can get them for is $10.00. We got the coupon for my grandmother and went to Kmart and got one. That's the price for going into technology, I supose. It could be worse, in UK they pay tax for their tv. (Around $200/year for a color tv). This isn't for cable or anything special JUST for owning a TV. So no matter what, it could be worse!
