    FCC Chair Defends Regulations, Calls FCC a ‘Cop on the Beat’

    Genachowski is another Obama radical who violates the law, ignores a federal court ruling and is Obama’s Harvard classmate. Both have lots in common. The FCC, under Genachowski, is a dangerous agency. A federal court told Genachowski that the FCC did not have the right to regulate Net Neutrality. So what did Genachowski do? He wrote his own rules and put them into effect despite being rejected by Congress. He’s a crook, not a cop.

    Likely US Voters Believe US-Muslims Relations Worse Off Than Four Years Ago

    But..but..but…Obama was going to be a uniter and make everyone love us. Guess all those apologies and appeasing to Muslims didn’t pan out as expected. Shocker?

    Over the cliff: Durable goods orders drop 13.2% in August; Update: Q2 GDP downgraded from 1.7% to 1.3%

    The media will not report these facts because it’s a clear sign a recession is right around the corner. Durable good orders in August dropped 13.2% to a 4-year low:

  • Sicilian Papa

    I had a cell, couldn’t afford it, gave it up and I make due with a land line. It ain’t easy being poor but my God have a little pride. My business partner has a cell phone so we share it for work purposes. I do a little extra work on the jobs because Anthony owns the truck we use and pays the insurance and maintenance.

    Where there is a will there is a way people.

    All I need is a elevator for my car, and you’d vote for me, and/or jump off a cliff if I told ya too.
    As far as ratturd being a f–king idiot. Yes! its very true and reminders are a good thing. It’s the only way stupid can learn to stop making his tacky ignorant remarks about me or regarding my comments. He will eventually learn….Might take awhile but he will.

    PS your “dozen” of misspellings indicate your deep vile anger as you type. Pleased I can cause you such a stir.

  • Jeff

    @wanda, notice how these neo con wack job folks that watch Fox News loose it when they are told they are wrong or worse that Fox is misleading propaganda news of the Republican Party.

    They scream, curse, beat their cheats, and tear at their garments. Sometimes soil their pants. LMAO!

    Don’t let these mean “fraction of a man” types bully you.
