another disaster creeps up on us

i know we have talked about this before, but it's becoming a reality.  the fcc is it's own little dictatorship, but it has to be funded.  time to write to our new congress and ask them to put this on the list of programs not to be funded.
just as obama-care has the potential to ruin health care and fundamentally change the way we access it, this "net neutrality" will do t his and more to our internet.  if the internet is slowed by our  use, the companies, not wanting to hear our complaints or face more competition, will figure it out.  let them.

once again, i suspect that our best interests are not in the govts heart, but control is!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

and that's exactly what this is about kathy, control.  pure and simple.
  Time to send another message to congress and the president office.

You are there to serve our interests, not to make us serve yours.

Big brother has to control every aspect of our lives to keep up fully dependent on him.
