Accountability

This whole DTV thing, the switch over to digital (if you don't know what I'm talking about, you're part of the problem) deal, is indicative of everything that's wrong with our country. They've been going on and on about this for years, literally years now, and we STILL have to give people until June now? It was supposed to be the 17th and now they've given everyone until June 12. I know that some people are having trouble getting boxes or whatever, but give me a break. That's why people aren't responsible, there's always an out, a way to cheat *coughs* A-Fraud *coughs*, there's always a "bailout" of some sort.

Hey I'm a senator and I owe the IRS thousands of dollars, but hey that's cool.

We're going to drive our companies into the ground but whatevs, the government will bail us out.

The kids at work were the same way, I don't blame them for not turning their work in, for being late all the time. Hell, there are no real consequences so why not, right?

Grrr...

The last I heard, people let those coupons they got expire and there were no more. Seriously, they should just get basic cable, it's only like $16 a month... Then the switch could happen on schedule.

But watch, when June 12th comes along it'll be postponed more.

I totally fucking agree with everything you just said. Accountability slackers piss me off.

Let's face it bro. This has nothing to do with people not being ready for it. Sure there are people that haven't gotten their shit together to watch TV after the switch, but they're not why this is not happening. This is more about the networks and their potential loss of ratings/ad revenue. Nobody's holding up shit for the good of the general public.
