This streaming video contains lots of interesting comments about the internet and how it functions according to our some of our most enlightened congresscritters. With giant intellects such as these serving the public, it’s a wonder that anyone ever decides to run for public office, huh?
(below the fold).
Even though these congresscritters clearly are morons, don’t underestimate how dangerous they are. They are trying to restrict our freedom to access information on the internet; they wish to allow service providers such as AT&T, Verizon and Comcast to decide which web sites you can access, based on which site pays them the most for those public access priviledges. If the public doesn’t speak up now, our elected officials will — as usual — cave in to a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign. How will this restrictive spineless congressional act affect you and me? Well, it will restrict your access to significant portions of the internet such as blogs, small e-commerce companies, and it will definitely restrict the free flow of information regarding basic human rights and other important issues.
I certainly hope that you all do something about this.
