Quote of the Day: Senator Jay Rockefeller

by the Left Coast Rebel

What is inside the cranial-wiring of a member of the ruling class of the United States that creates an insatiable appetite to control the lives, diets, incomes, futures and even what is seen and heard on the airwaves?

An honest moment from a United States Senator, Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia:

"There's a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: 'Out. Off. End. Goodbye.' It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future."
No joke. The nonsense before this quote that Rockefeller babbles on about is the height of Orwellian, as well. Watch it:

Imagine if Jim DeMint had said this? X-posted to LCR.


  1. "People are tired of escalating rates"? Gee, Senator...ever stop to think about what might be causing those rates to go up? Government regulations maybe??
    Or how about inflation...does the government have anything at all to do with things that cause inflation?
    Cable companies (and corporations) are scapegoats for the incompetency and desire for control by Congress.

  2. Yup, that's the Orwellian nonsense before the money line!

    I wonder when this idiot is up for reelection and if there is a chance to unseat him?
