The Price Of Cable TV

May 2, 2011

My internet was so slow. I needed to upgrade, and you know what that entailed, upgrading my darn cable TV. I hate cable TV because they got Barack Hussein Obama elected and my payments helped. I abhor that.

When I was a little kid I remember the cable company coming around to each and every door with their hat in their hands practically begging us to sign up for cable. I can clearly remember them promising my father, “Yes, Mr. Schroeder, you will never see another commercial ad once you sign up for cable and start paying for TV.” What the heck (WTH) happened there?

PAY TV!? It was such an absurd concept back then. Who the heck would PAY for TV? Certainly not my father, he was too astute for that. It’ll never catch on. Oh how I wish he would have been right. Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. Actually I think I should qualify that by adding, never underestimate the stupidity of the American people now that all these Euro-pukes (Soros) are integrated into our ranks.

So actually, he was right. I don’t think cable would be so wide-spread were it not for the fact that you can’t get decent internet service with out it. I know I would opt for just internet over internet stuck with gayble…I mean cable. And we only get three channels broadcast out here.

Now that we’ve “upgraded” we get a lot more channels. All those channels that I used to roll through on the TV Guide channel and I would look at it and say, “Man, I’m glad we aren’t paying for all that crap.” And why does the TV Guide channel find it necessary to show a movie. Not enough people were coming there to see what was on? Is it just me or does that seem stupid?

So. What is the cost of cable TV? What has it cost this culture? What has it cost this Country? What has it cost your community? What has it cost the American family? What… has it cost you? Are you really supposed to know about a drug bust three thousand miles from your house? Do you really need to see Prince Chuckleheads kid get hitched in real-time? I don’t even want to get into Chairman Zero (Obama) hunting down and killing Osama (Is it just me or do they seem to be related?). So, until next time, consider the cost, as well as the quality, of the information you are getting via your cable tv. Then, screw environmentalists.

How many of you are old enough to remember when cable came to town? I would imagine not very many, but of those of you who do, what was the big selling point? They came to us with their hat in their hand and nearly begged us telling us that we would be able to watch programs uninterrupted by commercials if we just paid them? Say it in unison, “ Why yes Rick, I believe that was it.”

So what happened? I pay them what a man earned in a week in 1965 every month and I see more commercials now than I ever did in the sixties. I was watching a program from the “golden years of television” a while back and they had so many commercials that they had to shorten the program. It used to have a little blip at the end but they had to cut that out to make room for the butt machine ad or something. Between cutting the shows up for political correctness, commercialism and the out of this world cable bill, I rarely watch TV anymore.

And when did the networks all become such great friends. They used to compete for our viewing with good programming that we wanted to see, Now they not only have the same crap on that no one wants to see they also advertise for each other. But that’s ok, I can get two Spanish channels and the “all church all the time” network if I buy one of those converter boxes and a two hundred dollar antenna.

Hallelujah Senor! At least it’s free. Or, I could get a life.
