This doesn't really have anything to do with horses, except that the government once again did not think it out. By now everyone is digital, that is if you bought a brand new HD TV. You may have sent for a coupon for a box as I did. Finally a government handout that I can take advantage of. I still had to pay the amount over $40 and buy a digital antennae. You only get half the channels without one. So what do I do with these? I can use them for lawn ornaments or I can dry socks on them. I have more in the house, these were my favorites. I pay for one TV to hook up to Dish. I really do not watch a lot of TV. When I do, I like to be able to see it as well as have a choice. I had them spread thru the house for when I use the treadmill or if I just need noise to fall asleep. So now I have to send at least 2 TV's to the dump. I wonder how many TV's and obsolete antennas will end up in a land fill. That will also cost, we pay by the pound in this area. Will they be dumped on the sides of roads like unwanted tires that are so hard to get rid of? This ends up back to horses that are no longer needed. What's next? Wait, I think they are starting a program for clunkers that get less then 20 or 25 MPG (I forget). Who's fault is that, the consumer or the government that allowed the manufacturers to produce them? Bottom line, all of us who work, pay for this. Over 30 years of paying taxes and I have a "free" converter box. I'm proud to be an American. I think I need some sleep, I had to get that off my chest!!!
