Digital Tv Switch

I think it is amazing (and not in a good way) that people have been told for 2 years now that on Feb. 17th of 2009 their tv will switch over to digital broadcast. Now, I’m not sure why, but a large amount of the population seems not to have heeded this warning and gotten the converter boxes (or new tvs) that they needed to comply with this change. So what does that mean? That means Congress will push back the date from analog to digital broadcast.

In my opinion, the government should move forward with the changes as planned. Once the change is made, people will be forced to take action and all will be right in the world. If the govt pushes back the switch, people will continue to drag their feet, not be proactive (or active at al) and will not get the things they need to be able to watch tv. Now, I don’t see the problem with watching less tv, but whatever. Once the change is forced, people will take the action they’ve had 2 years to take. End of story, done.

  1. Our government is constantly catering to the people who are at the bottom of the curve. When are we going to learn that we pull the rest of society down by making that our standard. If we would increase our standards and expectations, we might accomplish things.
