Dirty, Dirty, FILTHY TITTY!

Michael Powell, son of Colin Powell, is outraged! that he saw a tit on tv. Heres the story.
"I am outraged at what I saw during the halftime show of the Super Bowl. Like millions of Americans, my family and I gathered around the television for a celebration. Instead, that celebration was tainted by a classless, crass and deplorable stunt. Our nation's children, parents and citizens deserve better."

Powell, the director of the unelected group that is appointed by the president and thinks that it can make decisions on the First Amendment, is also "cracking down" on indecency in the media and wants to increase the fines for indecency "ten-fold." Unfortuantely, thats just bullshit. The FCC is a group of people appointed by the president that doesn't answer to Congress or any other oversite, and they just announce that radio and television are the only parts of American life that aren't covered by the First Amendment. Making decisions on limiting the First Amendment is a bit important, not only because its the First Amendment, but also because its the most important one... Its not fair that some tightwad neo-con Jesus freak can be the head of an unelected group that tells America what it can and can't see. This whole censorship thing erupted when Bono of U2 said "fucking" on national tv but NBC couldn't be fined because he used the word as an adjective, and not as a verb.
