WASHINGTON — The need for revenue to partly cover the extension of the payroll tax cut and long-term unemployment benefits has pushed Congress to embrace a generational shift in the country’s media landscape: the auction of public airwaves
So we will auction off our public airwaves to private business in order to make this month’s mortgage payment. Next month we will auction off our public lands to big oil, big logging and mining. After that we can auction off the water we drink and the air we breath.
Now I ask you. Once we have sold all of our airwaves, our land, water and air, what will we have to left auction off to make the next month’s mortgage payment come due to our creditors who purchased our airwaves, our land, our water and air, in order to increase their profits?
Our liberty, what little remains.
