    Listen up if your a Direct TV customer !!

    Just heard this morning on local news that the satellite could explode if they don’t decommission it and take it out of orbit before Feb 26th ! If it explodes in orbit it could take out some other communication satellites !

    So, there will be less TV for people to watch.
    Hmmm.
    I don't see a downside here.

    Directv also provides internet access but IDK if it's the same satellite as the tv programming. Not that it matters anyway for this story.

    quote from link:

    The Spaceway orbiter has been serving as a backup vehicle for the last several years. Therefore, Direct TV users should be relatively unaffected when the Direct TV satellite moves beyond communication range. There, it may rest peacefully forever, or disintegrate following a battery explosion only astronomers may notice.

    Watching Satellites burn up upon reentry is cool. Pretty sure I saw one or some other space junk two nights ago. Brilliant colors, much longer lasting than a normal shooting star, and time of night.

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    Tree hugging snowflakes are all buying electric cars. Makes me feel good about that 35 gallons of gasoline in my truck.

    Based on experience, all satellite internet is provided through Hughes Net. They just buy space like some cell phone companies buy space from larger companies. At least that's the way it is with Dish.
