Personally, I don’t watch TV, but a lot of America’s children do. So those of us with families and an idiot box need to be mindful of when, what and how much our children watch the “entertainment” broadcast over our shared public airwaves.
It has already been demonstrated that dog hater Mitt Romney turns a blind eye to porn, when it fattens his wallet. We know about crossdresser Rudy Giuliani’s multiple marriages, his pro-abortion stance and his inability even to get his own son’s endorsement. And we all know John McCain is done. While McCain’s campaign implodes, Sam Brownback’s is expanding.
So with two frontrunners questionable (if not undependable) on family, life and decency issues and another old fossil on the way out, what is Sam Brownback doing to uphold standards of decency in America? I’m glad you asked! Brownback Attempts To Restore Decency.
Legislation that would restore regulation of sex, profanity and violence on broadcast TV is scheduled for a vote Thursday in a U.S. Senate subcommittee.
One of the two amendments offered by Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., would render moot a recent U.S. circuit court decision that struck down government efforts to regulate indecent content during the “safe harbor” hours of 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The second amendment would give the Federal Communications Commission the authority to prohibit excessive violence from 6-10 p.m. on prime-time TV.
If your senator is listed below, urge him or her to support Sen. Brownback’s two decency amendments when the Senate Financial Services Subcommittee marks up the Financial Services Appropriations Bill on Thursday.

I’m glad someone is looking out for our families and is working to clean up the cesspool that is called entertainment today. Before I switched off the idiot box and unhooked the cable for good, I had noticed the gradual increase of foul language creeping into television shows, not to mention the rampant sexual innuendo and gratuitious graphic violence. There has also been a not-so-subtle attempt to normalize “alternative lifestyles,” such as homosexuality. This trend must be reversed.
As a Senator, Sam Brownback can only do so much. As President he could do more. Who has demonstrated his unwavering support for families and life, all life, more than all the other candidates? Hint: his initials are S.B.
