The FCC is Proof People Want to be Lead

The FCC (FederalCommunications Commission) was created in 1934 by the Communications Act of 1934 to protect U.S. citizens by regulating all facets of any use of radio spectrum. This includes radio, TV, cable, CB, internet, national and international uses, plus others. Their huge budget ($335.8 million in 2011) is funded by all the regulatory fee and fines. This could explain why they are so erroneously high, such as hundreds of thousands for uttering a “curse” word on air (radio or TV). The FCC is there to save us and our kids from seeing boobies, vagina, penis and from hearing words, such as shit and fuck. I mean our eyes might pop out of our heads and our ears may melt from this.

I am not a Sarah Palin fan but she used a great word combo to explain U.S. citizens; Sheeple (sheep and people). There is no real need for the FCC or any other organization to save us from things we might see or hear. The last time I checked all electronics (TV, radio, laptop, computer, iPod, iPad, SiriusXM, and smartphones all have an OFF BUTTON; plus you can just change it to something else.

The FCC has become a lazy and “pass-the-buck” way of raising kids. Too many parents are relying in the FCC to say what is or isn’t okay for their children to view or hear instead of teaching their kids what is right/wrong depending on their own household values. Why are people so afraid to think for theirselves? Why would they rather be TOLD what to do, say, watch, or listen to?

Sometimes it seems like we are becoming a country of mindless zombies that can’t commit to a way of live unless it is approved by others. I mean look how easy it is for cult leader to slither in and take control of large amounts of people. There was Jones Town{Jim Jones}, the Branch Davidian compound in Waco-TX {David Koresh}, and so many others.

They want to be given morality and decency. Are people really that devoid of it on their own? Or are they just sheeple and afraid to stray away from the flock in fear of feeling like an outcast or rebel? I hope it is the later, because otherwise this country is a much scarier place that most think.

What are your thoughts?


  1. Ahhh...the wicked webs we weave! It's so weird how our culture seems to think we need costly government agencies to "protect us"...from what, I'm not sure. I guess it boils down to "protecting the children at all cost"...someone is afraid our kids will hear or see something that some believe they shouldn't hear or see. At least not until they "come of age". I think it is hypocrisy at its best, especially on the part of those who initiate and attempt to enforce such things.
