bad move; used it in the television programming context— which means this would be only applicable to businesses such as Hulu.com, Joost, etc.

DonCullen 09/01/2009 9:44am

Too specific— needs to be broadened to include all video media on the internet provided by businesses that include audio.

Alright, good, you’ve included those less than 13 inches in size, but specifically said “after inquiry”, and failed to impose a time limitation on how long this said “inquiry” will take, and when this “inquiry” will take! Cmon, if you’re going to impose conditions, don’t be open-ended!

DonCullen 09/01/2009 9:24am

13 inches? What the hell? There’s netbooks that’re less than THAT size, DVD players with built in LCDs smaller than THAT size! Better to avoid citing sizes, just be inclusive for all sizes.

DonCullen 09/01/2009 8:44am

Only problem here, the word “sigificant” in this context has not been defined, so once again, that’s open to interpretion. So the loophole is still open. Weaker, but still open. But still, I’m glad that phrase has been codified! If the bill passes, it’ll be harder for businesses to beg out of compliance.

Increasing loan limits, wonderful, saddle people with even more debt. The people tend to think they can handle the debt, then years down the road the debt gives them a very severe beating.

Jerry McNerney— you’re the congressman (my congressman in fact) who represents the city of Stockton, CA — you of all people should be aware of Stockton being the nation’s highest rate of foreclosures. Increasing the loan limit would only increase the severity of the bite when it does come back to bite us in our collective rears.

I’m in full agreement that Ohio Department of Mental Health and the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services should absolutely be commended for their efforts.

However, this bill should belong to that of the Ohio legislature, not the United States Congress. It’s their state, they should commend their services. The US Congress should focus their time on more pressing bills.

DonCullen 06/20/2008 8:48am

I’m in agreement that the USA should sign the agreement. However I find this bill toothless; all it does is say we should sign, but that’s it. There’s no mandation or anything of the like.

Here’s a better idea: make those munitions illegal outright. The Congress are lawmakers; they should be able to do that.

DonCullen 06/20/2008 8:45am

There’s other more pressing bills that need the attention of Congress; I’m sure the theatre is to be commended, but that isn’t the job of Congress. They’re lawmakers, and should focus on staying within the boundaries of their job description.

DonCullen 06/20/2008 8:38am

I agree with this bill. I’m also struggling to find employment and not having much luck, so I can see why this bill would help many people.
