    The Dark Knight was awesome. I have it on DVD.

      There goes that plan.

            Glad to hear it. I wouldn't want you to get a head start to our Lord.

            When the Rapture comes, I'll race you up.

              EXACTLY what I was thinking when I read this!! When I took the Covey "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" course one of the things it taught was to deal with the big issues first, then take on the medium ones and finally the smaller ones. Don't try to do it all at once, or hop and skip around, or the big things will suffer the worst and none of it gets done. He gave a demonstration where he took a big jar and filled it with small and medium pebbles. Then he tried putting the big rocks in and they wouldn't fit. But when he put the big rocks in first, then the medium pebbles, then the small, they fit just right. I think this is an appropriate example because I want to take a big rock and throw it at Obama

                If End can start smelling you through the computer ISP, Mar, we'd all better stock up on air freshener - 'cause there'll be a big stink blowin' our way from the White House soon!

                    The kool aid must be made available to all of the kings subjects! No sheeple left behind.
                    Is he passing out kool-aid with those vouchers?

                    • So... Is this somehow going to play into feeding Obama's ego or what? I mean really, what purpose does this serve?

                      • {whispers} this is my tin foil idea :shifty there is something in the converters that "Big Brothers" us - it is already arranged with the places we buy our converters from... some dweeb is sitting in a room somewhere in the pentagon collecting all our subversive dealings (i.e. playing with belly button lint, dumping our kool aid down the drain, etc) and when we least expect it the big man himself will come in and apprehend us! mwhaahaa
                        So ends another shed worthy adventure - until next time.... stay tuned!

                          Converts to digital reception. You should get most of what's out there.

                            I believe we should all get 52 inch flat screen TV's for our trouble! [/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]That would just about solve our problems! I should have run for president! [/QUOTE]

                            its funny you say that orginal this is what was to happen. The FCC when they were asking for the digtal switch over they ask to have enough money for people to actually get voucher to use to get HDTV. But then the government said that was to much money to give out. And now they have run out of money. Our government just does not think ahead. Man if they had given out credit towards a HDTV it would have been better. I think standard size was credit towards a 27 inch is what everyone would have gotten and it is one tv not mutiple tvs

The ex-army man says it could be easily used for eavesdropping, etc.

                              Anyone here think that good ol' BO and our soon-to-be socialist government might like to have such access? Think about it - why else would this be mandated by the government? Since when do they care about the "quality of our T.V. signal" ? The only logical explanation is that something else is on their agenda. Not trying to be "tin-hattish" here, but just sayin'................
                              That is very interesting to me, because I've spoken with two retired army Computer geeks who told me something very similar less than a month ago.

                              One of them told me a few things that I needed to add to my emergency supplies as soon as possible. The #1 item he said I should get (or have my husband build) was a faraday cage.

                                Yeah, you know there is money making involved. I just wonder how many people end up buying a digital tuner, when they don't need one.
                                If you still watch a TV with rabbit ears, chances are you probably don't have a TV to really watch shows, just for emergencies, so why is the government so concerned about this??
