F$%k with the FCC, Pay $325k

From Boing Boing’s excellent quip:

The Federal Government just increased the price for saying “fuck” on TV or radio from $32,500 to $325,000. That’s because Congress passed the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act (BDEA). I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to a sharp drop in criminal behavior as a result of this new law to keep our minds squeaky clean. Link

The money will be put into the newly legislated Children’s Un-Swearing Security jar… or CUSS Jar. The money will then be used to leverage the government’s ability to buy soap in bulk… to put in everyone’s mouth.
Update: Guess who’s the only Republican to vote no? That’s right… libertarian darling Ron Paul.
