Did you ever think to read that here?
President Obama’s approval rating may be at an all time low, but today for me he ticked up a notch!
POTUS signed a critically important world-changing piece of high impact legislation of global important significance and meaningfulness.
I guess this proves that elected officials can get the really important things done.
Obama Signs CALM Act on Volume of TV Commercials
TV viewers, rejoice: You’ll no longer get blown out of your seat by the difference in volume between the television program you’re watching and the commercials that air during it.
On Wednesday President Obama signed into law the “Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation” or “CALM Act.” A press release from the White House states the law “requires the Federal Communications Commission to prescribe a regulation limiting the volume of audio on commercials transmitted by television broadcast stations, cable operators, and other multichannel video programming distributors.”
The House passed the bill by a voice vote on Dec. 2. It was passed the Senate unanimously in September. The FCC will start enforcing the new rules within a year.
Consumers have complained to the FCC about loud commercials for decades, and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif. [Chaldean Catholic]) told the Wall Street Journal in December that the CALM Act is the most popular piece of legislation she’s sponsored in her 18 years in Congress. [Get this... she is pro-abortion too. Just thought I would toss that in.] “If I’d saved 50 million children from some malady, people would not have the interest that they have in this,” she said.
For now, the FCC has a webpage on the subject, which advises consumers, “Manually controlling volume levels with the remote control remains the simplest approach to reducing excessive volume levels.” [Well.. that's helpful!]
I wonder if this will affect POTUS approval rating.
When you’ve had a hard day, a noisy day, filled with noisy noise, use that remote control like the FCC recommends and TURN OFF THE TV …. er umm… lower the volume on the TV so that you aren’t distracted while you order some Mystic Monk Coffee!
Yes, as Screwtape says, Hell is full of noise. On the other hand, Mystic Monk Coffee helps to create peace, quite and CALM. I bet the pro-life politicians who voted for the CALM legislation were drinking Mystic Monk Coffee… and from WDTPRS mugs. And if they weren’t they were wishing they were!
So, do your part to promote peace and quiet in the world and refresh your coffee supply now!
Mystic Monk Coffee!
