FCC will protect said consumers from said corporations.
I never saw where it was the job of the FCC to PROTECT consumers. I saw where it was to regulate telecommunications and to encourage competition, but nothing about protecting consumers.

Some things are a given. All federal agencies should protect us consumers from greedy destructive business practices.

You are operating under a common mis-perception of the Federal Gov't - that they are here to protect us. Run by current day politicians, the Federal Gov't is here to exploit the citizens of the US.

And another thing that bugs me is the idea that we need to be protected as if we are all children. That is another huge failing of society today - a society turning in to a bunch of children needing protection.

"Protect us" in the same sense as the military protects us against foreign aggressors. We need all the help we can get. You and I are the government. We need to be more responsible. We do not need to surrender to the oligarchs.
