One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.

What better way to control the Internet...declare it as a public utility and bring under control of the federal government. The best way to limit our freedoms on the Internet this would likely come with taxes and regulation.

"After decades of flourishing beyond anyone’s wildest dreams, the internet may soon be forced under a draconian regulatory regime created for monopoly telephone services in the 1930s. Last week, the Wall Street Journal broke the news that Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski plans to thumb his nose at virtually every precedent on the books and “reclassify” regulation of the internet under Title II of the Communications Act in order to pursue so-called “net neutrality” rules."


"For the uninitiated, net neutrality regulations would allow federal officials to determine how internet service providers could manage the networks they built and own, ostensibly in the “public interest.” In reality, it’s been the cause du jour of lefty activists and major content provider companies like Google for years now. The activists want to have the government own and run the internet like a public utility, and the big content providers want the feds to force internet service providers (ISPs) to supply all the bandwidth needed for the applications without any barriers. A match made in heaven, if you ask me." (

NO! There is nothing wrong with the internet. This is just another attempt to silence dissent.
