    Oh no John Deadwards banned! The courts may drop the charges but the family has a loooooooong memory!

    When the former politician and his daughter Cate Edwards, who is also his law partner, arrived Friday at Mellon’s funeral at Trinity Episcopal Church in Upperville, Va., he was barred from entering, a source connected to the Mellon family told NY Social Diary blogger David Patrick Columbia.

    “The service may have been open to the public, but he was not welcome,” Columbia said.

    That Supply and demand rental graph in Seattle Met is stunning.

    Looks like if the City Council would keep just enough new buildings going up to hold vacancy rates somewhere between 4-8%, rental prices would have a nice gradual decline back into the land of affordability. Unfortunately, we keep ending up back at 2-3% vacancy, with rent hikes approaching 10% a year.

    Shocked Oliver Willis. Taken from the libtard scream and shout playbook?

    Oliver Willis has been a liberal bomb thrower since 2000. – Taken from his HuffPo byline.

    Employee for Media Matters – Nuff Said here!

    Plainly evident why Carl runs to Oliver for assistance!

    So why is Oliver upset that conservatives are turning the word tables on libtards? Cus libtards are bullies. It’s libtards who scream to the IRS to shut down free speech. It’s libtards who will sue you or call you a racist or a misogynist when you disagree with someone politically!

    Yes Puddy dismissed Oliver the last time he was used. To use a headline from years ago…Dismissed with PREJUDICE!

    So “libtards” are bullies, huh?

    Well, let’s look some facts here:

    Oliver Willis. Blogger since 2000, supports himself as a RESPECTED online journalist, works for a credible watchdog oganization Media Matters For America, and appears on the pages of the Huffington Post, a very influential “New Media” platform.

    Vs…the Pudddypussy. Some contract tech worker (we surmise), right-wing religious-loony-toons wacko who only gets attention in the comments section of a somewhat widely read regional politics blog because his comments are so outrageously wrong on so many levels that instead of ignoring him, which is what he deserves…commenters here “take the bait” and the opportunity to mock him (easy…like shooting fish in a barrel).

    So let’s proceed, shall we? (with a little forbearance please by the mods)

    Charles Koch & The New Conservative Wimp Culture
    Oliver Willis on April 02, 2014

    Is the post that has our little Pussy’s panties in a knot.

    And here is the text:

    STOPPPPPP YOU’RE HURTING MY FEEEEEELINGS is apparently the new clarion call of the conservative movement. I’m still a little shocked by it.

    The latest whiny conservative is multi-billionaire conservative financier Charles Koch, who has written an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, the official outlet of the poor put-upon 1%, to complain that he’s actually been the subject of push back.

    Koch has spent millions and millions in the last few years (often unsuccessfully) to unseat Democrats from President Obama down to local dogcatchers, and to obstruct any and all legislation that could actually move America in a more progressive direction. It is his right to spend his money this way. And it is also our right to point out that this is a dick move.(emphasis added)

    When did the conservative movement become so wimpy? Has having their rear ends handed to them by Obama really turned them in to the weakling getting the sand kicked in his face?
    Conservatives used to be the uber-alphas, particularly at the height of their power back in 2005. Even when liberals called them the worst names, they didn’t whine, they just fired back – often doing a much more devastating job.

    Now they write books whining that liberals are bullies and have become the movement of Stuart Smalley, bucking each other up about being gosh darn good enough and smart enough.

    When you spend a ton of money to control democracy, particularly on ads that are shamelessly dishonest like the Koch ads have been, people are going to say things. They’re going to say mean things that aren’t nice, and if your best response is to go crying to your mommy you’ve exposed just how weak your soft underbelly is.(emphasis added)

    And we’ll get louder.

    So for 40 years, and particularly since 2000…the left has been demonized, vilified, misconstrued, misquoted, twisted and accused of the worst kind of loony conspiracies and traitorous and treasonous behavior. None of which ever happened.

    So our folks finally kinda sorta start to begin to get ready to grow a pair and push back…the right, with their stranglehold on the mainstream media and the Billionaire Oligarchs; well, like our pathetic little Puddypussy (KA-BlammoSuckaSuckaSucka), they can dish it out but they sho’ can’t take it (see Beck, Glenn; Limbaugh, Rush; Carlson, Tucker; O’Reilly, Bill: et. al.).

    So Puddypussy DIS-MISSED Oliver Willis years ago. Wow. Willis must be heartbroken.

    If he even knows who the dumbshit Puddypussy is.

    @5: Looks like all the democrats can run on Obamacare. The numbers are 9.5 million more people are insured – and those numbers are underestimates since the Rand study ended in mid-march – before the unprecedented last minute sign-ups.

    Bottom line – the right wing MYTHS and LIES have all been debunked.
    1. The people have not paid (85-90%) are paying at most state sites and many bills will not come for 6 more weeks.
    2. More people lost insurance – totally false. Over 9.5 million MORE people have coverage.
    3. The numbers are false – note this is similar to republican arguments about polls, science and reality.

    In fact, republicans rejoiced that only 100K or so people initially signed up and did not question THOSE numbers. Now that millions have signed up – suddenly the numbers MUST be false.

    Hypocrites! so much for the republican plan to run on the Obamacare “failure” – they will have to “invent” the failures now….and we still don’t have the alternative plan…..

    Let’s Get this Straight, the Kochs Are Menacing, Soros is Benevolent

    By: Deborah Foster
    Sunday, October, 20th, 2013, 12:12 pm

    If you spend any time on political sites on the Internet, you have no doubt run into Joe or Jane Conservative who believes that the Koch brothers are just good public citizens who get picked on because they contribute their money to conservative causes. If you have the patience or the inclination to try to educate them by presenting facts, there is also a low chance of acceptance of the truth. About a New Republic article written by John Judis, “The Shutdown is One of the Worst Crises in American History, a commenter wrote:

    “The hysteria over the Koch bros always reminds me of Soros, who spends FAR more money and has his fingers in more pies than the Koch bros could ever dream of. The man gives millions of dollars to over 30 “news” outfits. If you pull the strings at nearly every left-wing outfit, you find they lead to him and his money. So I have to laugh whenever a liberal whines about the Koch bros and the improper influence of money since they seem to find Soros just a harmless old philanthropist.”

    This is classic right wing misinformation. Together, the Kochs have approximately $68 billion dollars combined wealth whereas George Soros has $20 billion. Right away, common sense should prevail upon a conservative afraid of a Soros boogeyman that he doesn’t have the resources of the megalomaniacal brothers. Where does this misguided commenter get such nonsense? Where else but the conservative media-sphere, so well-known for its distortion, it’s become cliché. Visit Fox So-Called News or right wing blogs, and soon you hear that George Soros has spent “$550 million” since 1979 in the United States on liberal causes and fail to note that he has disclosed every dollar, because he believes in a transparent and open society.

    Conversely, just try and find a record of the Koch brothers’ donations to conservative causes since 1979 without a full-time investigator.

    Back to the Soros monies… Soros has given $$$ Billions to his Open Society Foundations. How much as the Koch brothers given rujax? It’s public knowledge because they have to declare it rujax. So your BULLSHITTIUM link above proves they are deficient in finding the values.

    Everyone knows Soros funded those anti-Bush war years attacks. They are documented on Zomblog. Don’t you remember these pictures rujax? Look at all the Nazi references. They have to be cousins with OWS Racist Fraggy! Well you are a libtard with 24 hour moronic moonbat memory malady!

    So where are those Soros freakazoids (there is one here called OWS Racist Fraggy) now that Obummer is funding the Afghan war?
    - They must be somewhere as they aren’t on the streets protesting Obummer’s war now?
    - Are they in Colorado doing marijuana or here in WA State doing the same?
    - Are they homeless and drinking themselves to death on the streets?
    - Are they calling up George asking for some smoke?
    - Are they defecating on police cars at OWS Freakazoid events as Puddy posted before?
    - Are they working for Soros enterprises?
    - Are they working for Van Jones?
    - Are they working for Mark Lloyd?
    - Are they working for John Holdren?
    - Are they working for Soros’ friend Jon Corzine?
    - Are they working for Cass Sunstein?
    - Are they in mental institutions like rujax is posting from Western State?
    - Are they in the Obummer sadministration?
    - Are they teaching classes at universities like Bill Ayers?

    From Soros’ Open Society Foundations have annual assets of more than $3.5 billion per Soros’ own reports.

    Have you found the Koch Foundations yet rujax? Here’s a hint… stay away from left wrong sites.

    Bernie Sanders Chillingly Lays Out How The Koch Brothers Could Buy the White House

    By: Jason Easleymore from Jason Easley
    Thursday, April, 3rd, 2014, 2:26 pm

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT): Let me tell you what I think. The Koch brothers who are now worth eighty billion dollars. Last year saw their wealth increase by twelve billion dollars. When you talk about Obama and Mitt Romney both spending a little bit more than a billion for their campaigns. What do you think it would mean to the Koch brothers to say we’re going to throw a couple billion dollars into the presidential election. It is nothing. It is a small fraction of what they earned last year.

    So this decision plus Citizens United is a terrible disservice to the American people. We need a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and, in fact, we need public funding of elections, so that all candidates have a fair shot at getting elected, and they get judged by their ideas by what they are fighting for, and not by the bank accounts of their campaign sponsors.

    Thanks to the take-over by the 0.01%, we are in very grave danger of becoming a Russian Style Oligarchy/Kleptocracy. These terminally delusional morons like ol’ Puddypissypants here (named because he wets every time any populist is mentioned. here, watch…

    John Holdren is right you asshole, we have too many fucking people and capitalism is broken!

    …or this…

    Mark Lloyd cares more about all people…black or otherwise than Puddypissypants EVER will!

    …fun to watch, yes?) that really believe that the Republican party as it is currently incarnated gives ONE shit about prayer in school, abortion, stopping women from having sex or equal pay or rights in general…are Quislings. Aiding and abetting the take-over. Thanks for being so fucking stupid, assholes!

    Hey dumb fuck…your heroes are STILL trying to keep black people from voting! Maybe you think that’s OK? Maybe you joined O-Fay and are passing. Maybe you the house Man…the Tom. That right? You down with more brothers in prison than in college? Or maybe you just don’t give a fuck ’cause you got yours.

    Whatever…nobody outside HA gives a flying fuck what Puddypissypants thinks. It’s fun to fuck with him though!

    Looks like all the democrats can run on Obamacare.

    Except Nancy Pelosi isn’t now. Puddy submitted the link with her video. And stooooopid creepy clueless crazed database deala, there are some issues with the 9.5 million…

    At least 6 million people have signed up for health coverage on the new marketplaces, about one-third of whom were previously uninsured.

    4 million of the 6.5 million whom ALREADY had insurance were forced into Obummercare. So those don’t count. As they are NOT NEW insures…

    At least 4.5 million previously uninsured adults have signed up for state Medicaid programs, according to Rand’s unpublished survey data, which were shared with The Times

    They are NOT in Obummercare. They are in Medicare, a program Obummer is slashing by $Billions to fund Obummercare.

    Thanks for walking right into that one very stoooooopid creepy clueless crazed database deala!

    Sux to be you!

    Allow Puddy to deliver a factual award winning healthcare blog…

    Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the non-profit Rand Corporation estimated that two-thirds of the first six million people to enroll in Obamacare were previously insured––only two million were previously uninsured.

    And from the link…

    What happens when the real number––the number of people who actually completed their enrollment––comes in far below the seven million?

    What happens when the hard data shows that most of these seven million were people who had coverage before?

    What happens when it becomes clear that the Obamacare insurance exchanges are making hardly a dent in the number of those uninsured?

    So if Rand said more were already insured what is the real number very stooooopid creepy clueless crazed database deala? Somehow nevercorrectnottoobright didn’t want to go there but you, being the very stooooopid creepy clueless crazed database deala did. That’s why you are the dumb brick of HA DUMMOCRETINS.

    Puddy realizes this fact was lost on rujax but the Supremes decision was any US citizen may now give to as many candidates as he wants, but only $5,200 apiece ($2,600 each for the primary and general election). And dumb cinder block… From the Chief Justice

    “If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests, and Nazi parades–despite the profound offense such spectacles cause–it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition.”

    Seems those are some of your favrit activities rujax! When you go back and view U.S. v. Stevens, which delved into depictions of animal cruelty and Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association covering those violent video games libtards like to play, The SCOTUS libtards said A-OK to those! Yet libtards on SCOTUS know the low information voter (read DUMMOCRETINS) are not part of the educated electorate and could be persuaded otherwise? That’s the crux here!

    So you putting up avowed socialist Bernie Sanders means nuthin dumb cinderblock. Must be facts don’t get through that granite encased Neanderthal shaped cranial orifice. It wasn’t the Koch Brothers who tried to work with the FCC on changing nt neutrality… it was George Soros! It wasn’t the Koch Brothers who are working to dumb down American children with marijuana it was George Soros. Now we learned a student from Africa jumped off a balcony to his death from a Colorado purchased MJ laced cookie. Yes, It’s Soros who wants to pollute American children. Butt, that’s A-OK with HA’s dumb cinder block rujax. Mrs Puddy and Puddy were saddened when we read that!

    John Holdren is one of your heroes? This person who is for:
    - Forced abortions. – Well the world would have been a better place if many of the HA DUMMOCRETIN posters parents followed “Jane Roe”!
    - Mass sterilization. – Well the world would have been a better place if many of the HA DUMMOCRETIN posters parents hadn’t spawned.
    - A “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over American citizens. – IPFB – Howard Dean Death Panels

    The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?

    These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology — informally known as the United States’ Science Czar.

    Hero of HA’s dumb cinder block!

    Puddy’s heroes keeping black people from voting… It seems North Carolina has determined

    A total of 35,750 voters with matching first and last names and date of birth were registered in North Carolina and another state, and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. Another 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, date of birth and last four digits of their Social Security number were registered and voted in the 2012 general election in North Carolina and another state

    So it’s A-OK for people to vote more than once eh dumb cinder block? Remember Obummer only carried North Carolina by approximately 15K votes in 2008! Look it up ya moron! Yet libtards wanna claim it’s voter laws that will keep dumb blacks from voting. First off dumb cinder block why are blacks in these conditions with DUMMOCRETINS running the cities? All those mega-$Billions spent on great society programs and blacks are still in poverty today. Why is that dumb cinder block. Oh wait… it would mean HA’s dumb cinder block would have to initiate cognitive activities and all know unless it’s from a left wrong site HA’s dumb cinder block doesn’t have a “thought”! Well chew on this video dumb cinder block… illegal aliens who not being US citizens, are voting in US elections. Listen to the video ya moron! “I vote every year!” DUMMOCRETIN motor voter laws passed to increase “voters” increased illegals in one county! And of course you being the dumb cinder block you are just merrily accept the Daily Kooks or PoliticsUSA talking point du jour!

    So why did the SCOTUS uphold Indiana’s law dumb cinder block? Libtard Justice John Paul Stevens wrote the opinion! Libtards want you to vote early and vote often!

    Now this is P R I C E L E S S:

    that really believe that the Republican party as it is currently incarnated gives ONE shit about prayer in school, abortion, stopping women from having sex or equal pay or rights in general…are Quislings. Aiding and abetting the take-over. Thanks for being so fucking stupid, assholes!

    Who is stopping wimens from having sex? DUMMOCRETINS like Who is against equal pay? Well Obummer is and Puddy provided the proof many times. Here it is again dumb cinder block… DaYUM you are stooooooooooopid as a cinder block… Oh wait… you are a dumb cinder block!

    So you are calling Puddy a traitor, “quisling” dumb cinder block? Are you black rujax? Still living on the reservation? Still barely eking out an existence for you and your son? Still buying him those libtard SCOTUS approved violent video games? Still sending him to those DUMMOCRETIN “approved” schools in Seattle? So who aided and abetted the DUMMOCRETIN take-over of Seattle? DUMMOCRETINS like yourself.

    Did you view the link from Goldy on the new cable boxes CenturyLink will install with Ed Murray’s help?
    Did you vote for Ed Murray dumb cinder block? Well enough of your fellow DUMMOCRETIN travelers did!
    Didn’t you know Murray was Comcast’s favrit candidate?
    Doesn’t that mean Ed Murray will be beholden to the interests of Big Cable? Isn’t that what Goldy wrote about in that other thread dumb cinder block?
    Isn’t that your argument against Charles and David Koch? See how STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOPID you really are?
    Wait… no one could be that stoooooooooooooopid. Well HA’s dumb cinder block really is that stooooooooooooooooopid!

    Now Mark Lloyd… Prior to being tapped by Obummer Lloyd was a seasoned fellow at CAP a George Soros funded outfit! He also wrote about how DUMMOCRETINS fail in talk radio! Mark was upset that people like to listen to conservative talk radio over Randi “4 Gun Shots” Rhodes at Scare America! So let’s be clear dumb cinder block as these are Mark Lloyd’s own words

    “It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press…. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration…. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.” – “Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America” – Mark Lloyd

    Hmmm… So he became the FCC Czar… Net Neutrality… emails to/from George Soros and the FCC before the US Court Of Appeals rejected the Soros/FCC new neutrality rules. Emails posted above ignored by HA’s dumb cinder block because the truth is a very scary thing when your Leetle Pea Brained Mind is already polluted with farces not facts! Now you know why Puddy asked where were those anti-war protestors now? More crapola from Lloyd

    “Local public broadcasters and regional and national communications operations should be required to encourage and broadcast diverse views and programs. These programs should include coverage of all local, state and federal government meetings, as well as daily news and public issues programming.”

    Really? So the free market couldn’t decide Scare America sucked? Oh wait… they did!

    “The McCutcheon decision, Paul Ryan’s budget, and Obamacare deniers all say what the GOP can’t: Republicans protect the well-off from redistribution of their wealth to those who don’t deserve it.”

    Take it from Arthur Brooks, head of the American Enterprise Institute, who wrote a famous Wall Street Journal column back in April 2009 headlined The Real Culture War Is Over Capitalism.” Defenders of free enterprise, he wrote, “have to declare that it is a moral issue to confiscate more income from the minority simply because the government can.”

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/a.....icans.html

    He discusses the idea that the right have reframed “redistribution of their wealth” in moral terms. It’s ungodly, it’s unjust, it’s not moral to ask the rich to give up anything.

    This explains some of the fanatical responses that conservatives give when we talk about progressive incomes and such. It’s attack on their god, their religion, their morality.

    It doesn’t matter of facts show them that extreme income inequality is bad, and show them HOW it’s bad, we are attacking their gods. They are no different than followers of Islam in that regard.

    @32. Why do you think we should we vote NO?

    King County Prop. 1: Should voters invest in roads, transit?
    Voters will consider King County Proposition 1 in the April 22 election to fund roads and transit. The ballot measure would add a tenth of a cent to the sales tax and set an annual car-tab fee of $60 to prevent deep cuts to Metro bus service and to help fund road projects throughout the county.
    PRO: Avoid cuts to Metro transit
    CON: Money better spent on roads

    Silly Republican Insurance Reform Ideas…

    Selling Insurance Across State Lines

    it would be a great way to blow up an existing health insurance market

    It’s a 1990s idea that fails to recognize the business a health plan is in in 2014.

    It doesn’t solve the problem it identifies.

    Association Health Plans

    Commonsense unless you know how the insurance markets work.

    What the hell do you think a Blue Cross plan is?

    If I take 10,000 dry cleaners and put them into the Dry Cleaners Association Health Plan will I get their costs down?

    No.

    Ryan wants to take health care away from millions of people and replace it with … uh … something

    If Republicans repeal Obamacare, Rep. Paul Ryan is admitting that all that popular stuff—like young adults staying on their parents’ insurance until age 26 and coverage of pre-existing conditions—is gone. Forget about it. But, uh, y’know, Republicans will totally come up with something to replace those policies:

    Four years, FIFTY fucking REPEAL VOTES, and no replacement plan…no proposal to cover uninsured…nothing.

    The Republican health plan is still, “Don’t get sick.”

    Puddy realizes this fact was lost on rujax but the Supremes decision was any US citizen may now give to as many candidates as he wants, but only $5,200 apiece ($2,600 each for the primary and general election). And dumb cinder block… From the Chief Justice

    “If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests, and Nazi parades–despite the profound offense such spectacles cause–it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition.”

    Seems those are some of your favrit activities rujax! When you go back and view U.S. v. Stevens, which delved into depictions of animal cruelty and Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association covering those violent video games libtards like to play, The SCOTUS libtards said A-OK to those! Yet libtards on SCOTUS know the low information voter (read DUMMOCRETINS) are not part of the educated electorate and could be persuaded otherwise? That’s the crux here!

    So you putting up avowed socialist Bernie Sanders means nuthin dumb cinderblock. Must be facts don’t get through that granite encased Neanderthal shaped cranial orifice. It wasn’t the Koch Brothers who tried to work with the FCC on changing nt neutrality… it was George Soros! It wasn’t the Koch Brothers who are working to dumb down American children with marijuana it was George Soros. Now we learned a student from Africa jumped off a balcony to his death from a Colorado purchased MJ laced cookie. Yes, It’s Soros who wants to pollute American children. Butt, that’s A-OK with HA’s dumb cinder block rujax. Mrs Puddy and Puddy were saddened when we read that!

    John Holdren is one of your heroes? This person who is for:
    – Forced abortions. – Well the world would have been a better place if many of the HA DUMMOCRETIN posters parents followed “Jane Roe”!
    - Mass sterilization. – Well the world would have been a better place if many of the HA DUMMOCRETIN posters parents hadn’t spawned.
    – A “Planetary Regime” with the power of life and death over American citizens. – IPFB – Howard Dean Death Panels

    The tyrannical fantasies of a madman? Or merely the opinions of the person now in control of science policy in the United States? Or both?

    These ideas (among many other equally horrifying recommendations) were put forth by John Holdren, whom Barack Obama has recently appointed Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology — informally known as the United States’ Science Czar.

    Puddy’s heroes keeping black people from voting… It seems North Carolina has determined

    A total of 35,750 voters with matching first and last names and date of birth were registered in North Carolina and another state, and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. Another 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, date of birth and last four digits of their Social Security number were registered and voted in the 2012 general election in North Carolina and another state

    So it’s A-OK for people to vote more than once eh dumb cinder block? Remember Obummer only carried North Carolina by approximately 15K votes in 2008! Look it up ya moron! Yet libtards wanna claim it’s voter laws that will keep dumb blacks from voting. First off dumb cinder block why are blacks in these conditions with DUMMOCRETINS running the cities? All those mega-$Billions spent on great society programs and blacks are still in poverty today. Why is that dumb cinder block. Oh wait… it would mean HA’s dumb cinder block would have to initiate cognitive activities and all know unless it’s from a left wrong site HA’s dumb cinder block doesn’t have a “thought”! Well chew on this video dumb cinder block… illegal aliens who not being US citizens, are voting in US elections. Listen to the video ya moron! “I vote every year!” DUMMOCRETIN motor voter laws passed to increase “voters” increased illegals in one county! And of course you being the dumb cinder block you are just merrily accept the Daily Kooks or PoliticsUSA talking point du jour!

    Now Mark Lloyd… Prior to being tapped by Obummer Lloyd was a seasoned fellow at CAP a George Soros funded outfit! He also wrote about how DUMMOCRETINS fail in talk radio! Mark was upset that people like to listen to conservative talk radio over Randi “4 Gun Shots” Rhodes at Scare America! So let’s be clear dumb cinder block as these are Mark Lloyd’s own words

    “It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press…. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration…. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.” – “Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America” – Mark Lloyd

    Hmmm… So he became the FCC Czar… Net Neutrality… emails to/from George Soros and the FCC before the US Court Of Appeals rejected the Soros/FCC new neutrality rules. Emails posted above ignored by HA’s dumb cinder block because the truth is a very scary thing when your Leetle Pea Brained Mind is already polluted with farces not facts! Now you know why Puddy asked where were those anti-war protestors now? More crapola from Lloyd

    “Local public broadcasters and regional and national communications operations should be required to encourage and broadcast diverse views and programs. These programs should include coverage of all local, state and federal government meetings, as well as daily news and public issues programming.”

    Really? So the free market couldn’t decide Scare America sucked? Oh wait… they did!
