    A detailed look at crony capitalism at its worst.

    http://dailycaller.com/2012/02/22/documents-show-obamas-fcc-used-regulatory-muscle-to-destroy-lightsquareds-competition/

    The Daily Caller has obtained documents, emails and communications showing how President Barack Obama’s Federal Communications Commission demolished wireless broadband company LightSquared’s competition through a pattern of regulatory decisions apparently aimed at establishing an “open-access” Internet in the United States.

    If you want people to reply to the numerous threads you're starting, you should cite sources that are less ridiculous than Tucker Carlson's vanity site that is largely funded by the Las Vegas lunatic who's pumped $21 million into Gingrich's equality ridiculous campaign. icon_lol.gif

    Except that the dailycaller.com actually came out with decent journalism on this one. They have also been quite critical of a number of Republican candidates. Again - it's not surprising to me at least that you see startups like this as a threat.

    Not a threat. Not a start up. A vanity blog for a "journalist' who has been fired from every reputable news organization in the country.

    You're welcome to believe that you read. God knows you believe in an "economics" that has failed in every country it's been tried and is currently failing in Europe, so there's no point in trying to dissuade you.

    You're also welcome to make up what you apparently don't read. What a world you must lead in where every "success" to you is in fact a failure. Your liberal ideas have shown to be consistently unsustainable and often inherently corrupt and yet you trumpet them as as if they have been unproven.

    Whatever you're smoking Christian - you clearly will need it in the coming years as governments continue to reduce the influence of public unions and those that don't will stagnate or default.

    What success are you talking about? Is this another instance of you arguing against what has not been said?

    I'm not a "liberal" and don't have "liberal" idea. And the progressive policies of FDR and Johnson led to the greatest economic expansions in the history of this or any other country. Since conservative policies took root during the Reagan administration we've had booms and busts, increasing inequality, and the destruction of the social contract.

    In terms of unions, look at Wisconsin, Ohio, and all the other states where anti-unions agendas have been pursued and the enormous public backlash against them. The tide is turning. Just not in the direction you believe.

    Ah so now you're arguing semantics - and outright lying about the economic expansions, boom and bust cycles as if Europe hasn't had their significant share of boom and busts in the interim as well. Do you even bother considering history and economics?

    Let's look at Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana... oh oops, the narrative doesn't fit your dream world - yet again... icon_rolleyes.gif

    The tide isnt' shifting anywhere remotely in your way Christian - that's just the drugs talking again apparently masking the fiscal realities facing governments everywhere.

    It's not semantics to say I'm not a "liberal". It's a statement of fact. My beliefs are much further Left than American liberalism.

    My statements on economic expansions and contractions are, indeed, true, and as Europe has increasingly deregulated its economies and the world economy is increasingly interlinked, the same problems that plague the US have effected them.

    In terms of WI, IN, etc., I can only assume you are deluding yourself into thinking mass populist movements aren't taking place but Walker has been recalled and similar activities are taking place in the other states where right-wing nuts have been trying to deny workers their rights.
