Comment: Re:Reduce gun violence? (Score -1) 436 436

Last I checked, the president's armed guards (or Rosie O'Donnell's, or anyone else for that matter) aren't carrying military style assault rifles or hand guns with extended clips. If you haven't read the articles that he's proposing, stop spouting off about things you don't know enough about.

Sadly I don't think cable will die off. The fact that they have all the redundant crap repeated over and over is because people watch it. If they didn't, they wouldn't keep making it. So I don't think you should hold your breath until "Teen Mom", "Toddlers in Tiaras" and "That Other Trainwreck Of a Show" stop airing.

I don't claim to understand why people like that crap, but based on the fact that it keeps coming out, its apparent they do.

It would appear so. And telcos always pass that savings onto the consumer... *cough*

It could place providers in the position of requiring warrants for all law enforcement requests.

Wouldn't that reduce the labor/financial burden on the telcos?

The telcos must be acting at the request of politicians, in exchange for good treatment by the politicians on behalf of the telcos on other unrelated matters.
