Commissar Of The Airwaves

Please read this recent speech by FCC Commissioner Michael Copps.

Commentary here, here, and here.

Understand that the Dems have a 3-2 majority on the FCC.

"Control freaks on steroids", indeed.

Intelligence officers - this is not a drill.

Encourage competition, but at the same time demand subsidized or free cable and Internet service for the "underserved" (those who can't or won't pay for it).
Demand community involvement and acountability, but at the same time reserve the right to decide what constitutes "public value."
Heads they win, tails we lose.
Nothing less than nationalizing our media. No more supply-and-demand and free market.
They seem to think the time is right. They are mistaken.

Although for the most part we agree, I disagree with the last statement you made.

The time is right. They're right. Americans will tolerate it as long as they get their fix on the tube.

We will watch this happen, and take it. We will back up another step, another inch, whatever. We will, guaranteed. We have for decades. We did over healthcare reform, in spit of many online rants and threats. Just peruse the archives of WRSA, Sipsey, and other like sites. Much talk, yet we backed up.

No riots, no bricks, no mobs. Just empty internet rants. No glorious struggle for freedom.

I hate it, but it is. It just is. And I am guilty.

Americans will not fight until their money is physically confiscated, they are killed, or until American Idol or whatever else is taken off the air.

I have great hopes for the DC siege, because thus far, the anti-war crowd and pacifists were much more aggressive upon the start of the war in Iraq than FreeFor has proven itself to be in its cause.

Myself (especially myself) included.

They think the time is right for a media takeover (as if the media didn't already play their game). They are right and will get what they strive for.

Why? Because we will not make them stop.

I hate it, too.

You are spot on.

As I have said before, when there is no longer freedom of speech, why should the instruments of speech still exist? The Media has a very long tail which can be broken in MANY different places. One does not need to eliminate the talking heads. One can take out the transmitters. Print? Without paper or ink, what will they do? Or if after printing the papers are lost en-route to distribution? Any break will suffice. And when that is fixed, another break either there again or elsewhere. Be aware of the Bad Guys' logistics train. That knowledge can be VERY useful

Therein lies the problem-and it's likely a fatal one...

What? When?




This is why we're probably done.

We need a Lexington _and a Paul Revere...

The death of a thousand cuts...

has been in process for decades. By the time the victim becomes light headed, it's too late. Blood pressure drops irremediably and death follows.

We have already had a thousand "Lexingtons", plenty of just cause and grievances beyond counting.The time to act has long passed but is still available to us.

Lead, follow or get out of the way.

Relax. Logic ensues. The reason we don't do anything about this crap is because we're not like them. They are the violent, irrational, bizarre ones, not us. Their very nature dictates their illogical modus operandi. They will get away with it for so long, and then the dam will break. No one is more suprised than the thief who finds his liver split by the homeowner who has decided enough is enough. It will come, it will come. No rational, peaceful person rushes to the madness of combat. It will be upon us as lightning, in the night, without a breath of wind.

Word, Sean.

The only thing I'd add is:

As you wait for the excitement, work hard on your physical fitness.

A friend pointed out that you can get a complete novice of only average intelligence up to speed on basic marksmanship in only a few days. Add moving to the shooting and you still are talking about a few weeks, including sidearm.

It takes a few months to turn an old American fatbody into something approaching baseline fitness for his/her age group. Only then can real hardening begin.

Time is the most precious input to the FreeFor's probabilities.

Spend it well.

In his *1980* novel "The Probability Broach," libertarian author L. Neil Smith wrote this:

"...TV schedules will be cut back by an additional two hours in eighty cities next week. Heads of the FCC and Department of Energy... unofficially denied rumors that broadcast cutbacks were related to recent media criticism of the President's economic and energy policies."

Obvious violation of the First Amendment.

The FCC has no legitimate authority except that which is provided by Congressional legislation. Congress has no authority to "make law abridging the freedom of speech..."

Therefore the FCC can NEVER have legitimate authority to regulate speech.

Of course it may take 10 -15 years to get the case to the Supreme Court but ....

Now they're claiming a lot of small planes and their owners aren't under sufficient surveillance.
