I suppose it is better than having my tax dollars lost

But, why don't they:

1.) study the adverse effect of the demise of the Fairness Doctrine

2.) go all anti-trust on Clear Channel and News Corp (before they merge)

3.) find the decency act unconstitutional

4.) or go all the way and actually be in charge of the movie rating system

5.) allot a specific amount of our wavelength to political campaigning, make it free and fair access, and then make all other T.V./Radio spots illegal

feel free to add your own...
