What's next in terms of the Democrat party take-over of the open market and the U.S. economy? Not willing to settle for the 20% of the economy represented by healthcare delivery the Democrats are holding a hearing as of 3:00 pm November 17 on TV cable retransmission charges. What's that got to do with jobs?
It looks like John Kerry -- the Senator from Massachusetts except when he sails his yacht at which time he moves up the coast to Rhode Island so as to cheat Nantucket, MA out of personal property tax -- just wants to pass a law that baseball and NFL games will only be seen on American public broadcasting. The issue that these bozos are wasting their time and our dollars on is the fact that Cablevision would not pay Fox what it wanted back during the World Series. That's Fox as in the network, not the home of Glenn Beck.
But the real stunner is that that man of the people -- Rockefeller of West VA -- is using the World Series negotiations stand off to complain that Fox -- not meaning the network, but meaning the home of Glenn Beck -- is responsible for the "dumbing down of America." I guess he did not like the results of the recent election (when dumb Americans kicked his party out of much of its power). Even his new co-senator from West VA said Obama was wrong and ran ads shooting an arrow (or a rifle/can't remember which) through a copy of Obamacare set up like a bullseye. Rockefeller seems to think it's Fox's fault that the American people rejected his philosophy of the government taking over all markets and running the economy. This includes even who can run whose broadcast content.
It has nothing to do with the stupidity of his ideas. This guy has been heading toward dementia for years and it looks like he's finally ready to be moved to the top floor of the nursing home.
For those of you outside the U.S., we still have to put up with bozos like Kerry and Rockefeller as committee chairmen because they are Senators that are only elected every six years. It was the bums in the House of Representatives, who have to stand for election every two years, that we kicked out two weeks ago.
