    It shouldn't surprise us that politicians have no basic set of values.

    Doesn't surprise me one bit that these politicians have their little pet ideas that entire purpose is to gain more votes. They would stop pulling this stuff however if Americans stopped falling for the "shiny nickel" so to speak if you understand what I'm saying.

    So you believe the federal government is granted authority by the Constitution to regulate how loud a commercial on television is?

    Well whether or not they're the only ones who could do it is irrelevant to whether they're authorized by the Constitution, which they're not. The states could regulate the noise level of commercials individually, or we could realize that it's not important. If you don't want to hear the commercials you can mute your television. That's what I do.

    I do but there are noise laws in your community, why should they be allowed to blatently disturb the peace in your home? I think it's rude and I would never buy anything from whoever uses these ugly marketing tactics.

    I notice it in Ford commercials and one funeral home commercial here. So, they got my attention but the result is negative.

    That's your prerogative. However, that doesn't justify the federal government doing something it has no authority to do.
