Skip to comments.SATIRE: Obama Set to Appoint Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg as New FCC Chairman
Posted on 05/26/2014 12:57:27 PM PDT by GlobalVagabond
President Barack Obama was due to name a new head to the Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday to replace Tom Wheeler, a former cable and wireless industry lobbyist. A White House official told the Associated Press that Obama planned to announce Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the top telecommunications regulator in the US.

Isn’t this like nominating the Fox to Guard the hen house?
Is this a joke?
But the report is correct
Just the usual Obama idiocy! Zuck just cashed in on fluke deal that could have been a flop!

Thank you for referencing that article GlobalVagabond. Please bear in mind that the following critique is directed at the article and not at you.
The integrity of the referenced article aside, note that the FCC is regarded as an “independent federal regulatory agency.” The major constitutional problem with such agencies is this imo.
The Founding States had made the Constitution’s first numbered clauses, Sections 1-3 of Article I, evidently a good place to hide it from federal lawmakers, to clarify the following. All federal legislative powers are vested in the elected members of Congress; not in the executive or judicial branches, or non-elected federal bureaucrats like those running the FCC. In other words, Congress has a monopoly on federal legislative / regulatory powers whether it wants it or not.
The bottom line concerning so-called independent federal regulatory agencies like the FCC is the following imo. By establishing such agencies, corrupt Congress is wrongly protecting federal legislative / regulatory powers from the wrath of the voters in blatant defiance of the constitutional clauses referenced above.
Satire. Though I had to go to the “about us...” page to be sure.
No sarcasm tag
DailyLeak is a satire site like the Onion
Insane does not begin to describe this.
No conflict-of-interest there.
This post is inexcusable! It should minimally be tagged as satire, if not marked in the title. It is far too believable and gets people upset unnecessarily. We shouldn’t have to keep track of which sites are satirical in order to keep from being duped.

Judas Priest vagabond, don’t scare us like that, at least put satire
You know..a few years ago I would have said just be cool. But the things going on these days result in stuff like this being ignorant and..I aint got the words for it.
They think they are being cute by doing crap like this. Dont swallow anything as they would stand there after they started a big fight and say “Who me?” “I didnt do anything.”
I didn;t post this I was just the first response
