Wanna Meet a Retard from D.C.?

Meet FCC Commissioner Michael “I Ride the Short Bus” Copps!

Mikey’s another of those (too many to count) asshats that believe they should be in charge of deciding what goes out over the open air broadcast spectrum. He has a pie-in-the-sky proposition that all broadcasters, be they television or radio, that use “the people’s” airwaves should be held to the following standard:

I’m here to propose that we replace the bad old bargain that past FCCs struck with the media moguls with a new American Media Contract. It goes like this. We, the American people have given broadcasters free use of the nation’s most valuable spectrum, and we expect something in return. We expect this:

1. A right to media that strengthens our democracy
2. A right to local stations that are actually local
3. A right to media that looks and sounds like America
4. A right to news that isn’t canned and radio playlists that aren’t for sale
5. A right to programming that isn’t so damned bad so damned often

In Mikey’s World, Mikey and others of his ilk will decide what fulfills those “rights” he’s dreamed up. Exactly what, specifically, would constitute numbers 1, 3 and 5? Ask Mikey! With number 4, he’s basically saying the Associated Press needs to be nuked, since they provide the bulk of news copy read over those airwaves, while also demanding that the endangered species known as “disc jockeys” should be a protected class who can, despite the fact that someone else is footing the bill, play whatever they fancy.

Hey, Mikey! Here’s an idea: abolish the FCC. Then, from the ashes, let rise a new thingie; one that settles disputes about signal coverage areas and the other technical crap, but pays no attention at all to what is being broadcasted.

Welcome to the New World WAR

China Tests Anti-Satellite Weapon, Unnerving U.S. – New York Times

Arms control experts called the test, in which a Chinese missile destroyed an aging Chinese weather satellite, a troubling development that could foreshadow either an anti-satellite arms race or, alternatively, a diplomatic push by China to force the Bush administration into negotiations on a weapons ban.

Are you, really–I figure you’re some jack jerked college kid–that fucking dumb?

Why? Why would China not just sit back and think “We got the Democrats.”

They lit the candle, and declared the heavens the next frontier.
