Umm, you *are* in America, no?
You dudes know how to fix this shit, no?
You've done it before, no?
Or what, you think everyone else should be
keeping your high standards for you?
[Insert quote from past President about
being watchful, or fear, or something]
And note that you didn't need to mention :
"No end to slavery. Thats un-American."
"No 'one man one vote'. Thats un-American."
OTOH, fucked up country that can't look at
Janet Jacksons chest, yet is the biggest
global exporter of porn.
(Not that thats a bad thing: it'll be a scary

Actually, even funnier is USians complaining
about Television standards after having
shattered the (~BBC set) standards of the rest
of the western world.
And done by a Limey, no less.
Suck it up: from experience, the time when
people are complaining about TV standards
is the *top* of the slope: come wallow with us.
And call now to order
"From 'The Ascent of Man' to 'The Biggest Loser'
in 12 easy steps",
and get FREE
"'Fawlty Towers' to 'Joey' in 9 easy steps".
