How far we have fallen. How did the human race survive for eons without interrupting TV? How did we survive without the 911 system? All hail big, intrusive government. It should be a system preference to disable this crap. The big thinkers in DC obviously know what's best for me in all circumstances. They should reimburse the money I put into my pair of Premiere XLs and Lifetime service since the boxes are basically useless for anything other than their purposes any time the weather gets interesting. Given CHOICE, you people in Tornado Alley could leave it enabled. And don't even get me started on Amber alerts. We should all just get mandatory government digital receivers implanted into our central nervous systems at birth and be done with it.
