not only “no,” but “pound sand”

[Time-Warner Cable has] created a policy that effectively bans visual images of automatic weapons and visual images of weapons pointed at people,” …
“If a pawn shop submits an ad that has a picture of an automatic weapon, we don’t say to the pawn shop, ‘You can’t air your ad.’ We ask if they would like us to re-edit the ad,” he added. [more]

Perhaps they would like me to re-start my TWC TV service.
Answer: some version of “NO!”
(What? No, it’s a free country. They can do what they want. Just not with my money.)

Reckon they don’t want their SOs buggin’ ‘em anymore because they have to field those embarrassing questions at coven meetings cocktail parties, bath houses, and Progocrat fund-raisers. Well, as long as there’s still a business to employed by, anyway.

Buuut, you’re still gonna show ‘em shoot-em-up Hollywood movies, right?
Oh, and y’all know what “automatic weapon” means, dontcha? Just checkin’.

    But TWC will still broadcast TV shows with people shooting each other, and not using any rules of gun safety?
    Make sense to…. ummm someone… I guess it makes sense to people who want to feeeeeeel safer but are not actually safer.

    I use TWC as my ISP and land line service but have been cable free for a decade with no ill effects. I picked TWC because of the speed, price and the fact that they did not limit monthly usage like ATT started to do. This allows me to watch Netflixs and Amazon Prime for about 10% the cost of crappy cable.

    The last time I looked, there were few providers that meet those criteria. Any suggestions?

    And of course they hired professionals to instruct them about what ‘automatic weapons‘ are and aren’t.

    I typed that with a straight face, didn’t I?

    I’m switching to DirecTV for my video addiction;
    but for practical reasons, I’m keeping my TWC internet/email.
    No use shooting myself in the foot over this.

    Doug, You should send them a proposal to be their firearms consultant.
    For a very healthy fee you could help them avoid embarrassing themselves any further.

    This is where the gun control really starts. With the communist implants in the major corporations.

    I’ll say it again: *all* major corporations have at least communist in their c-level employee list or on their board of directors. Colleges brainwash kids into being communists, and then have worked with the government to condition people into believing that a degree means a person is qualified (never mind that a degree is no guarantee that the person has any work experience at all).
    So all the major corporations require degrees for any position of importance.
    The end result is the communists get their disease ridden brains into the very fiber of our economy.
    And when the time comes, they do exactly what they are doing now. They help the government enforce communist law on the people.

    I thought that was censorship, and illegal, short of the Feds making law. But pornography posing as drama on TV is OK?
    I hope they lose tons of ad money.

    As long as they can continue to ostracize Christians and glorify perverts, they’re OK with it.

    Comcast is getting just as bad.

    A friend has a daily devotion site and is constantly battling Comcast to deliver his daily e-mail devotions.

    End times, my friends, end times.

    In a few years, “they” will start editing out weapons from movies, just like they’ve done with cigarettes in old movies.

    I can hardly wait to see a Bruce Willis/Stallone movie with all the guns blanked out and replaced with perfume sprayers.

    We’ll be right back to “Scarface” after these gun-free messsages.
