POLICE TARGETING AND BULLYING

FLAT SCREEN TV BULLSHIT


Introduction

My name is Michael Katz. I need help with bullying. But I can't find any existing bullying organization that helps a 47yo male.

If I was to find such an organization, I have to say that the problem I am having is that I have been stuck in a continuous situation of being a victim of an ongoing crime. Then they will tell me to report it to the police.

The problem IS the police and the government. I have been denied my 14th Amendment rights since I turned 17 in 1983.

My 14th amendment rights have been violated by the police. They don't recognize my rights as a crime victim and have always put the rights of other people before me. The police have committed crimes against me by targeting, stalking, harassing, and bulling me.

James B. Martin has been the District Attorney of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania since 1998. At some point during the time he has been in office I lived in Fountain Hill where I was relentlessly targeted by the Fountain Hill police. Now when I travel through Fountain Hill I am still stalked by the Fountain Hill police.

The Fountain Hill Police are criminally negligent for targeting me. The chief of the Fountain Hill police is criminally negligent. James B. Martin is criminally negligent because he is the person at the top who has responsibility over the behavior of the police.

It has been impossible for me to have any kind of a life because of this ongoing police targeting. There has to be a federal investigation of the crimes of police, police chiefs, and district attorneys.

I know I have so much PTST from being bullied by the police for 30 years, and being denied the existence of any agency to report this police targeting to.

And then there's the matter of how PTST carries over into gun rights. Are we going to deny the gun rights of the survivors of school, theater, and mall shootings?

I know that I am an introvert and that I have been profiled by the police because of that.

Gun rights may be at the very core of the issue. The police target me over and over and over again and twist it around to use it against me by making it look like the pattern is my fault.

I am bullied to the point that crimes have been committed against me. I have to be taken seriously. I should not have any more continued bullying when people assume I am strung out on drugs or that my PTSD from bullying is some other psychological disorder.

I WANT MY 14th AMENDMENT RIGHTS!!!

I WANT IT NOW!!!!!


On 9 August 2013, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, Crisis Intervention did a surprise visit by showing up at my house unnanounced.

As I post my civil rights complaints on my website, the mental health system continues to bully me. I asked who sent them to me. All they told me is that they are following orders given to them by their boss. I don't know who it is that made the decision for Crisis Intervention to make a surprise visit to my house.

A few hours later I phoned mental health to complain about this. The reponse I got was, "What happened recently to make you upset?" I did not reply to tell them that crisis intervention made a surprise visit to my house. I don't know that they would have said if I said that. Maybe they got a call to send them. The point is that I am bullied by citizens and the police. Being asked what recent incident triggered me is not the point. The point is that I have been complaining about bullying for a very long time. I am being ignored and not one is helping me. Mental health is telling me I need help to not be so distressed about the problem. I am not getting any help from mental health to actually solve the bullying problem.

I should not be bullied by the government, police, and the mental health system as I continue to make civil rights complaints.

I want out of the mental health system. This is like trying to get out of the Church of Scientology.

They perpetually want to tell me I need treatment to get better. They want me to see a psychatrist. That could result in me being committed and forced to take drugs.

I need help with my civil rights. The mental health system doesn't do this.

I cannot possibly go for treatment of PTST if the bullying is continuing to happen. The mental health services denies the reality of the bulliying. The mental health system then becomes the bully. The mental health system completely ignores my civil rights. The more I talk about civil rights, the more they spew out their pchychobabble that I have to forget about civil rights and just go for treatment.

The mental health system bullies me when I am upset about being bullied and tells me I should only focus on treatment while they completely ignore the behavior of the people who bully me.

I have always had very nervous body language. I have always been bullied for having nervous body language. I have nervous body language from the result of being bullied. I perpetually get bullied for having nervous body language. It's impossible to tell if the chicken or the egg came first.

Humans are hard wired to communicate in body language. I cannot read body language. All of the humans that are skilled in body language cannot read my body language. This really pisses them off, and they take their anger out on me. Most of the time this anger happens in the form of passive aggression and lying to me. People have too much of an ego to ever admit that they are reading my body language wrong. They put all of the blame on me by judging me for having nervous body language.

This is how the police have bullied me. The police take one look at my body language, and all of my 14th Amendmend rights are gone.

I have been targeted by the police for 30 years. It doesn't take long at all for the police in a town to become aware of my existence. Wherever I live, the police in that town will incessently target me.

Police target me when I drive. Is is absolute bullshit that police only stop me if I do something wrong. Police target and stalk me all the time. The police lie and charge me with driving violations I did not commit. This has resulted in me losing my licence.

The police have committed crimes against me. I want to make criminal complaints against the police for targeting me. I want my licence back, and I should not be targeted by the police anymore.

I have 14th Ammendment rights. Police completely ignore my rights if I have to report a crime committed against me. The police only acknowledge the rights of other people before me, even if those people are criminals that have victimized me. I have a case to sue the federal goverment for 30 years of police targeting and bullying.

I should be able to find a civil rights attorney that realizes I have a case to sue the federal government for all of this bullying.

I prefer an attorney that believes in my case and that the damages for 30 years of bullying from the government will be astronomical.

This is an unexplored frontier of civil rights. I should not have to be bullied for having nervous body language. The government has done exactly that bullying to me. I cannot begin to say how much this has affected me.

I have a lot of complaints against the mental health system. I have been bullied by the mental health system when they perpetually say I need therapy while they ignore the bullying problem and my civil rights. The mental health system ignores the problem of bullying and how it has had an effect on me. The mental health system does not help me when other people bully me. When the mental health system does not help me with bullying, their lack of action is neglegence and that just adds to the bullying.

I should not be bullied by the mental health system. That system should take me seriously when I say I am bullied even if the bullying is police targeting. I need protection from being bullied no matter where the source of the bullying is coming from.

I should be provided with the free federal legal services that I need that will protect me from bullying. I need the legal services to help me make criminal compaltints against the police for targeting me, and sue for compensation.



POLICE TARGETING AND BULLYING

Andrew Cain, 19, Commits Suicide After Sheriff's Office Posts Sarcastic Facebook Message



David Leamer


David Leamer is a social worker. I am not likely to be hired as a social worker. Therefore almost everyone that is hired as a social worker is not able to relate to me.

I sent a letter to someone else that can advocate for me. The assumption I have is that David Leamer's purpose is to advocate for me. When I have to contact someone else to mediate between me and David Leamer, then it is time to end it with David Leamer.

The following is the letter I sent:

I do not want to see David Leamer anymore. On 26 August 2013, I had to phone David Leamer because I cannot contact him by email. He answered the phone. I said, "perhaps it would be better if I left a voicemail". We ended up staying on the line and I attempted to explain the email complication to him.

When I call him during the day he answers. If I call him in the middle of the night for the specific purpose of leaving a voicemail, he blames me for calling during off hours.

He has a facebook account. He registered that facebook account using his email address. When I send out an email to him from my facebook account, it goes to his facebook account. He told me that he doesn't read his facebook messages.

I am not going to get into a long drawn out discussion with him typing on a cell phone in the text messaging. I thought I could solve this problem by sending David Leamer my email address. I sent David Leamer a text message containing my email address to reply to.

On 24 August 2013, I sent David Leamer a cell phone text message simply containing my email address to write to me.

On 26 August 2013 I got an email from David Leamer. He responded and wrote to my email address. This is the only email I ever got from him. He never saw any of the emails I sent to him. Therefore he never replied to any of my emails. The only email he sent me is the one in which he writes to my email address directly. If there is going to be communication in email, he has to actually read my email. He can't just write to my email address without ever reading anything I said.

When I received an email from David Leamer he sent it from his email address to my email address. His email came to my facebook inbox which is exactly where I want my incoming email to go.

But David Leamer had previously signed up for a facebook account using his email address. So now because his email address is registered with a facebook account, his incoming email shows up as coming from his facebook identity.

David Leamer either has to read his facebook messages or give me another email address that isn't connected to his facebook account. Or delete his facebook account so his non facebook email address will no longer be connected to a facebook account.

I attempted to explain this to him speaking by voice over the phone. He told me I was "ranting and Raving", and hung up on me.

He does not want to listen to me when I try to speak to him directly. I can't even resolve the email issue with him.

Checking my text messages, he first contacted me 30 May 2013.

It is August 26, and after all this time, I can't even resolve the email communication problem with him.

Do not try to advocate for me. I should be able to talk to him directly. I can't talk to him. The more he ignores what I say, the more energy I have to exert to be heard and be understood. If I cannot talk to him directly to resolve an email miscommunication issue that has gone on for 3 months, I know that this is never going to work. I gave him a chance. I am done. I am not going to see him again.

I do not want anyone to advocate for me and try to be a mediator between me and David Leamer. I am comunicating perfectly clearly. His interpretation of my communicaten is that I am "ranting and Raving". I should be able to communicate with him when it is just me and him alone. That has not happened. This is my choice that I want him to stay away from me and not contact me again. This is a toxic situation that has to end. I will not put up with anyone who tries to force me to have to see David Leamer.

Letter to Caregivers of America Headquarters:

I want to terminate services at the Allentown Caregivers office. That is my choice. When I told them this, they completely ignore me and tell me I don't have that option.

That interaction with them is an example of how all of my interaction has gone with them. They completely disregard what I say.

Their response to me after I tell them I have to terminate services confirms that I have to terminate services.

Patti wouldn't see me during the day. When I tried to discuss that with her she got angry at me. Kevin replaced her. He wouldn't see me during the day. I made an appointment with him for 26 July 2013 days in advance. He sent me a text message that day saying he will arrive at 7:00pm. He never showed up and claimed there was a communication problem.

Now when there is a problem with Kevin, I have not been informed of any existing boss to discuss the problem with. Patti is still the manager of the agency, and I don't want to continue with Caregivers.

What I really need is legal services that will help me attain my 14th Amendment rights.

If I continue with Caregivers, the situation will spiral into a worse situation that is going to require a lawsuit. Effective immediately, I just want to terminate services with Caregivers.



Psychologist

The following is communication with a psychologist in reverse chronological order.

Dr. Linkletter, NOT her real name. The name was changed due to her abusive tone in the conversation.

I said to her I needed an Autistic support group for Autistic adults. There is an abundance of parent run Autism support groups. The mothers run and attend the meetings. I don't know where the fathers are. Lately they have allowed their teen children to have their own separate meeting. I needed to find an Autistic adult support group.

She told me she would help me start an Autistic support group meeting.

I said from the very beginning this meeting would be for Autistics and run by Autistics themselves.

I said that I need to address bullying even if that bullying comes from the police and the government.

I am writing a reply to your last letter. I am not going to send it to you. I will read it in court.



From: Dr. Linkletter
TO: Me

11 July 2013

I am sorry you do not recall our final email when I informed you that our formal relationship was terminated due to non-compliance. I also reminded you that you were not to contact me other than to have your records sent to another provider. Further email would be considered maintenance and I would need to bill you directly.

I hope this contact with me has reminded you that you have elected that you no longer care to work with me. You have also made the choice not to come to our support group. You are not welcome to attend due to our conflicts and your unhappiness with how it is run. I am sure you will enjoy the NYC meetings more, as you have stated numerous times.

The correct response to this situation is not to respond to this email, not to have further contact. I understand you may not be able to resist the urge to have the last word. If you must do so, please know I will not respond. Any further response from me will result in direct billing in the hundreds of dollars as services rendered. Any contact will be considered harassment, as you have been notified in writing that you are not invited to attend the group due to disruption. I'll ask you not to force the issue and to pursue other activities and interests.

10 July 2013

You sent me a long and angry email that requires a response.

I am aware I am not seeing you as a therapist. I sent you a very short email message that only pertains to the Asperger meeting.

This is a direct quote from the email I sent to you: "It is way more than not showing up to bring me to the meeting. There are other complaints besides that. I'm only telling you the only complaint that has to do with going to the meeting there."

Perhaps this requires further explanation. I had a scheduled appointment with a careworker to bring me to the Asperger meeting on 6 July 2013. She did not show up to pick me up to bring me to the meeting. She just blew off the appointment.

The only other thing I said to you in the email was that I have issues of abuse with this caseworker. I did not want to tell you the specifics because that does not pertain to the subject of the Asperger meeting. The fact that she did not pick me up to bring me to the Asperger meeting is the only statement I wanted to say to you because that is a statement that pertains to the subject of the Asperger meeting.

Your response letter to me went way beyond a simple response to my letter. It was long and angry. You went into detail about so many issues I didn't even say to you in my short email.

"I believe I made it very clear in writing that you were not to contact me for reasons other than to have records transferred."

I don't recall any such written request. The email I sent to you had nothing to do with contacting you as a therapist. It was completely on the subject of the Asperger meeting. It was to touch base with you to tell you that a careworker that I expected a ride from did not show up to bring me to the Asperger meeting.

"Without proper treatment, which you have refused, your anger continues and your intellect goes to waste."

There was nothing in the email I sent to you that expressed any anger towards you. If you interpreted any anger from me, it was about being upset that a careworker blew off a planned scheduled appointment to being me to the Asperger meeting. I also said that there are issues of abuse that I preferred not to discuss with you because you are not my therapist. However, a problem with an abusive therapist is more appropriately presented in the environment of an Asperger meeting.

Yes it is true that I do have anger and PTSD from being bullied. I did not in any way direct any of my anger to you in the email I sent to you. You have no right to criticize the very existence of the anger from my being bullied. The anger should be directed in the appropriate way to raise awareness of the bullying I have been through.

What exact quote in my email expresses anger. Was there any angry word towards you directly. I said a careworkder is abusive. Of course I am angry about that. I didn't even say any details about it. I simply just left it at the existence of an abusive careworker.

You were doing this when I was seeing you as a therapist. It became impossible to talk about my problems. I talked about problems that had nothing to do with you. You took everything personally and attacked me. When I was in your office and I put so much time and energy explaining situations that were going on, it is very frustrating after all of that, you weren't understanding me.

So then I decided I would try to put my thoughts into emails to you. Your responses were filled with so much anger and hostility. Even your last email is filled with so much anger. It is not clear what I could have said to you to trigger such anger out of you. You are dumping all of your anger on me.

"If you remember, there was a time when you were very angry with me and found what I was doing to help to be objectionable to you."

The response you sent me seems to be focusing on past anger I had, because there is no expression of anger in the last email I sent to you.

"Michael, you threatened to take over the Adult Autism Support Group because you felt my facilitation was unfit ...which would have been upsetting and frightening to the participants. Therefore you have been ‘uninvited' to participate in this support group."

I tried to discuss this with you. I attempted to have a civilized conversation with you. You refused to hear anything I had to say.

I raised a very valid point.

Here is my exact quote: The March meeting. No guest speaker. 2 hour meeting. 3 people show up. There cannot be only 3 minutes on a timer for each person to talk.

I have made every attempt to discuss this with you directly.

Don't accuse me of wanting to take over the meeting. This is an Asperger meeting meant for people with Asperger Syndrome. In the span of a two hour meeting there can be plenty of time for each person to talk about their own personal issues. Another segment of time can be all about what each person wants to say about what they want to get out of the meeting. I want to hear each person attending to give their input and ideas about what the meeting should be about.

I said from the very beginning that this to be a meeting specifically for people on the Autistic spectrum. That the very people attending the meeting have all the say of what the meeting will be. I said from the very beginning that this meeting will in no way resemble a parent run Autism meeting. You are a parent, and you are interpreting that as a personal threat towards you.

I have done nothing wrong to disrupt that meeting. You have uninvited me to the meeting simply because you expect I will disrupt the meeting.

There has to be ground rules for the meeting that gives the people attending the meeting all of their rights. The rules cannot exist in your head that you make up and change on the fly.

You will not uninvite me to the meeting based solely on your expectation that you assume I would disrupt the meeting without it actually happening.

I want to give the opportunity for time for each person to talk and participate equally in the meeting.

I have told you my goals directly to you in emails and you don't like what I have to say.

The subject of bullying from the police and government will not be banned from the meeting. I want to hear from the people attending the meeting. They will have equal time to talk.

You are not doing this. You are not giving an equal voice to each and every person attending the meeting. How can I prove this? You refuse to listen to me. If you continue to treat me this way, you will be disrupting the meeting. You are not going to blame me for that.

Dear Michael Katz,
I am not clear as to why you are writing to me. I am no longer your therapist. I believe I made it very clear in writing that you were not to contact me for reasons other than to have records transferred. Without proper treatment, which you have refused, your anger continues and your intellect goes to waste.

From this email and the cc you sent, it sounds like you are having conflict with this professional named Patti Blanc. I do not know this individual or where she is employed so I cannot assist you. If you remember, there was a time when you were very angry with me and found what I was doing to help to be objectionable to you. Michael, you threatened to take over the Adult Autism Support Group because you felt my facilitation was unfit ...which would have been upsetting and frightening to the participants. Therefore you have been ‘uninvited' to participate in this support group. I hope that you receive the support you desire from the NYC groups and perhaps the Trauma/PTSD support resources.

I wish you well.
Sincerely,
Dr. Linkletter, M.S.

I don't know if Patti Blanc contacted you, because I told her about an Asperger meeting that meets at your office.

Without saying any specifics, my complaint against Patti Blanc goes beyond rudeness. What she did meets the definition of abuse. She did this as a "professional" and my complaint has to go against the agency she represented.

It is way more than not showing up to bring me to the meeting. There are other complaints besides that. I'm only telling you the only complaint that has to to with going to the meeting there.

I am sorry that you have experience illness. Please consult a medical doctor to follow up.

In the month of April you have made it very clear that you no longer care for my professional support or the support group I initiated for adults in LV. I emailed you mid- April that the support group was cancelled due to your threats to bully the group around police targeting topic. I made it clear to you that the other group members knew nothing about that topic and did not need to know more than generic information on the fact that you have experienced difficulty with it. I protected group members from harm as I would protect you or any client. You are no longer invited to participate in this group, as your trauma agenda does not meet with the general needs of this group.

No longer meeting with me professionally for a month, and lack of civil contact in general are grounds for termination of our relationship. I suggest you find another psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, or institution, perhaps via BAS or County Mental Health Services, to facilitate your situation. Perhaps one of the professionals who have evaluated you might consider taking you on. I would be happy to cooperate with sending on records or evaluations to qualified professionals..

I worked with you and the professional team around you for many months; advocating, teaching, and clarifying. I supported your family. I supported your legal team. I have smoothed things over for you in the community. I did so on an around-the-clock basis accepting much disrespect from you. I have understood this was due to your diagnoses and trauma and granted you much latitude. I do not care to continue in this role, mostly because it is grossly ineffective for your long-term wellness.

I hope you will accept treatment recommendations for long-term trauma treatment sensitive to your autism and ocd needs, preferably in a structured setting. I no longer consider you under my professional care. I do not care to receive communications from you other than requests for transfer of records, this means email, text, phone, and visits to the office. If you contact me, I will double-bill your family for the 'nuisance' and they will be displeased..

Please know I have great respect for your ability to get well with proper treatment.. You do have amazing skills and I believe you can possibly 'fit in' without losing your unique-ness. Please do not be afraid of accepting help.. I wish you well in all your future endeavors.

I still say to talk about bullying and everyone has to be free to talk about their bullying.

The analogy of a flea in a box that is covered with a lid. The flea is conditioned to not jump higher than the lid even after the lid is removed.

I found two articles about this. One article is all about reaching your full potential. The other article is all about staying in your virtual prison. Of course you know I am all about freedom and reaching my full potential.

You are not understanding me. I have put in too much time and energy to get you to understand me. Everything I say to try to get you to understand me only pisses you off. There is no point in trying to do this anymore. I don't want to see you as a client.

We are in complete disagreement about the rules of the meeting. I am saying there is to be no censorship at the meeting. I will listen to anything others have to say. We take turns and we say what we want to say when it is our turn.

Excuse me, but you told me in yet another phone message that you were finished with me.

Do you want to make this decision to cut off an advocate? You seem to be happy to push me around with your words, treating me unlike you would NOT like to be treated, yourself. You see, if I make one tiny "slip up' to protect a sick client it earns me two weeks of punishing email and phone messages to point out how wrong I am in present and past. That is abuse. I don't have to take abuse. I am so sorry you learned abuse by being abused, but I do not have to put up with it. I did not abuse you ever, not once. I have treated you with warm and acceptance.

Michael, I think starting this group was an excellent thing, but I am trained to listen to all the group members. I also stopped Matt and Jason from discussing details about their Jr High school teacher...suggesting they could do that later, it wasn't exactly group worthy. Did you need to hear about their middle school teacher and what happened to her and what happened next? Technically I cut them off to benefit the group. They could have gone on for 20 minutes about it.

No one else in the group has been such a victim to police targeting as you have. they care about you and your experiences, but no-they are not gonna get involved, nor should they. There is also something called secondary trauma, getting traumatized by hearing someone else's trauma, which I need to protect. Do you want to scare the young guys away from driving/learning to drive for FEAR of what you experienced?

THIS is HOW I protect them. THIS is me being a good therapist. I do not apologize for it. Maybe if someone professional cared for you better and earlier as I do, you would be happier.

You have a responsibility NOT to traumatize these young men with Aspergers too! You have a duty not to make matters worse for them, as people have made things worse for you. It may FEEL good for you to vent out in front of them, but it would hurt them. Now, if you do not like this ...label me as being an intrusive 'parent' then we have to shut things down I guess. I'll send them away.

I want to help you with your anger. I want to help you with you socialization. I have been willing to do it on your terms, as long as it didn't make more trouble for you.

I'll still schedule appointments for you at my new office.

It would be best to tell you in an email what you do wrong at the meeting. If I try to tell you what you do wrong at the meeting, that will not go well.

I want to run the next meeting. I want to talk about bullying. Everyone is allowed to talk about their own personal situation if they want to. I am going to talk about police bullying at the meeting.

I don't want you hovering over me every time I talk to someone else at the meeting. Stay out of that interaction. If I ask someone a question don't interfere. Let the person respond to me completely on their own without you saying anything that is going to affect their response.



FLAT SCREEN TV BULLSHIT

I filed this complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

I purchased a 19 inch flat screen TV. My complaint is the speaker they put in a 19 inch flat screen TV. The previous generation square TVs had decent left and right stereo speakers. They don't do this on 19 inch flat screen TVs. The speakers in 19 inch flat screen TVs are crap. They sound like the speaker in a tablet. I expect the speakers in a 19 inch flat screen TV should sound the same as the stereo speakers in the previous square tvs.

Why should I have to purchase extra external speakers? The TV should come complete with good internal speakers or external speakers.

I want the external speakers to clip on to the TV and become one with the TV.

I don't want the external speakers to use a separate power source. I want the TV itself to provide power to the external speakers. When I turn the TV on or off, I want the power to the speakers to go on or off simultaneously.

There has to be a standard that a 19 inch flat screen TV has to sound better than the ipad internal speaker. I expect that to add external speakers to an ipad that the speakers use its own power, and they connect to the headphone jack on the ipad.

I purchased a 19 inch flat screen TV. When I purchase a flat screen TV, it should come complete with decent internal speakers or the external speakers should clip directly to the TV and receive power directly from the TV.

The stores just want to sell me a ridiculously expensive surround sound system that plugs into the coaxial digital audio output from the TV. $25 dollar computer speakers will plug into the analog stereo audio output from the TV. Stores don't tell you this. They play dumb when you try to confront them with this information. The computer speakers don't attach directly to the TV and the tvs are not manufactured with a DC output to supply power out directly to the computer speakers.

When I purchase a flat screen TV, I expect that it should come with the complete package. The speakers should at least be like the stereo speakers in the square tvs. If they have to be external speakers, they should come in the same box with the TV and they have to be designed to integrate with the TV by securely attaching directly to the TV and getting power directly from the TV.

When I go to stores and explain this, they have no clue what I am talking about. I am saying that I am just using a TV. I am not using any other receiving device. The sales people in the stores don't understand me when I say that the cable TV service I have is old school cable that goes directly to the TV and I select the channels on the TV itself. They don't understand the concept of an antenna that connects to the TV and the TV itself is the receiving device to receive over the air broadcast television. When the TV itself selects the channels, this requires that the TV has proper internal speakers or complete with external speakers that physically attach to the TV and get power directly from the TV.

If I connect a DVR to the TV, there could be an HDMI cable that combines audio and video. Or if I used the RCA output from the DVR, it would go to the video and audio inputs into the TV. The DV itself would provide the audio to internal speakers of the TV. If I attach external speakers, they would be connected to the audio output of the TV. I want the TV itself to provide power directly to the external speakers. I want the speakers to be packaged together with the TV and be included in the price of the TV.

Connecting external speakers are the same whether you are connecting it to a DVR or the TV itself. Both the TV or a DVR have a coaxial digital audio output that connects to a very expensive sound system. Both the TV or the DVR have left and right analog audio outputs that connect to 25 dollar computer speakers. External speakers with proper wattage, use their own power source. It would be a lot easier if tvs were manufactured with a DC power output to power the external speakers so that the power to the speakers will shut of exactly when you shut off the TV.

The sales people in the stores don't believe me when I say the TV itself is receiving the broadcast TV, and that any external speakers have to connect directly to the TV.

The sales people in the stores keep talking about the coaxial cable. The Coaxial digital audio output jack on the TV is meant to be connected to expensive sound systems that receive a coaxial digital audio signal from a digital audio source.

When a flat screen provides a coaxial digital output, that is not my complaint. Surround sound audio systems are very expensive. If there were basic inexpensive external speakers that take the coaxial digital audio signal, that would be fine with me.

A flat screen has a stereo analog audio output jack. Computer speakers will plug into that jack. But the computer speakers don't attach directly to a flat screen TV. The flat screen TV does not provide a power output to power those speakers. It would just be simpler when I turn off the TV, that she speakers will shut off at the same time. I want to be able to turn off the speakers with the same TV remote. I don't want to use a separate remote for the speakers. When I turn off the TV with the TV remote, I want the speakers to shut off as well.

The sales people at the stores are playing games with me. They tell me that the only speakers available to connect to a flat screen TV are expensive surround sound audio systems. They tell me that the coaxial digital audio output from the TV is the only way to connect speakers. They don't tell you that 25 dollar computer speakers plug into the analog audio output jack on the TV. The stores don't carry tvs and computer speakers that are designed to physically attach together. The stores don't carry flat screen tvs that provide a direct power output to the speakers.

I want flat screen tvs to come packaged with external speakers that are designed to physically attach to the TV. I want the tvs to be manufactured with a power output jack that powers the speakers directly.

I have a consumer complaint. I purchased a flat screen TV. The internal speaker is shit. It is incomplete without external speakers. They should come complete with the TV. It should not be my responsibility to get them extra.

If I complain to the store where I purchased it from they will tell me bring the TV back to the store. Then they will determine the TV is no different from any other flat screen TV they sell, and then they will proceed to tell me there is nothing wrong with the TV and that I have no complaint.
