“Congress needs to pass a law allowing for customers to select and pay for only the programs they want to watch.”

Yes, and also they need a law that you should be able to order lobster chowder, and only get lobster, no potatoes, for the same price. And don’t get me started on chocolate chip cookies with all that dough between the chips! All those bastards should be made to sell me what I want, for the price I want to pay!

Lobster chowder without the potatoes is called “lobster.” It is available for purchase in the stores. Chocolate chip cookies without the dough is also available - they are called “chocolate chips.” They are generally made by Nestles and sold under the brand name Toll House. They are available in most supermarkets.

See, YOU are able to buy what you want - chocolate chips without the dough and lobster without the potatoes. BUT, I am forced to pay for my MTV even though I don’t want it.

I have a very good friend who owns a cable TV/Internet company here in SW Colorado. My wife is his office manager. He and she can tell you the nightmare of offering such packages. The book keeping alone would be horrendous. Prices would definitely go up for all.

I understand your sarcasm and I agree.
