    It's good for politicians to put riders into unrelated bills to avoid an honest vote on something?


    We'll remember that the next time the Dems do it and you bitch about it.

    Why would that be wrong? Unless both the Senate and the House rewrite their rules to make every single bill that gets passed standalone, prohibiting any amendment that does not directly bear on the original bill, that is the way things will always get done. Can you imagine the gridlock if Congress had to debate every issue separately, and deliver an up or down vote based solely on the merits of that issue? The government would grind to a halt, and the only things that would get done each year would be the things that are impossible to ignore. While I, and others like me, would view that as an improvement, I suspect you would soon be clamoring for a return to the status quo.

    Fight fire with fire. The FCC is over stepping their bounds in the first place to pull such a stunt. I'm tired of these pud faced liberal commies and their activism pissing all over the constitution. Fuck 'em. They need to be bitch slapped and told to sit the fuck down and quit meddling in affairs that are out of their authority limits.

    I agree.... Its sickening how they are making The Constitution irrelevant.

    They should all be tossed out on their asses
