What a waste of words.

You can't just throw out parts of the Constitution you don't like. You can't ignore the law because you have a fucking stick up your ass about "owners". While you might applaud the FCC and while you might even say what they did is morally correct, it's not legally correct.

So rant all you want, it doesn't matter.

The person who can smile when something goes wrong has thought of someone to blame it on.
