Anything the government gets its “meat-hooks” on gets MESSED UP! Do veterans get seen quickly at the VA? Is the United States Postal Service prompt? Can you “zip” in and out of the DMV on your lunch hour? We’re so screwed.
Things might start off innocuous enough, but then the government will overtake the Internet like an evil kudzu vine. Oh yeah, and taxes. Yep, it’s not a matter of IF, but when taxation will start. That’s according to someone from the FCC.
It might be time to take out a couple of cans and some string.
From Breitbart: Republican FCC Commissioners Mike O’Rielly and Ajit Pai, who voted against the plan, alleged that President Barack Obama unfairly used his influence to push through the regulations, calling the plan a “half-baked, illogical, internally inconsistent and indefensible document.”
Michael Powell, a former Republican FCC chairman who now runs the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, warned that consumers would almost immediately “bear the burden of new taxes and increased costs, and they will likely wait longer for faster and more innovative networks since investment will slow in the face of bureaucratic oversight.
….”Read my lips. More Internet taxes are coming. It’s just a matter of when,” Commissioner Pai said.
