It An Election Year

Folks don't loose sight of the fact the FCC is a politically appointed group. Also it is an election year and the candidates need contributions/financing from the likes of ATT, Verizon, TWC etc. So in the spirit of don't bite the hand that feed you, the FCC will look the other way to protect the benefactor who appointed them.

So do you think FCC-related issues will be heavily debated this evening? Yeah it's an election year. But no one cares what the FCC does as it relates to the election. It's not even a blip on the political radar.

Not looking fpor a debate topic, This is just a statement that ATT/Verizon/Comcast/etc are major political contributors and FCC does not want to upset the apple cart.

Yepper!!

Ding! Ding! Ding!!

That's EXACTLY what our government is all about! I sure wish every single member of any political party, whether local, state or federal, was investigated. I bet we could clean house that way, seeing as how people are to blind (stupid) to do it by the power of their vote!

While we're at it, let's just flat out get rid of this chicken s**t outfit called the FCC!
