    Everything the government does to regulate the Internet is illegal. The last time Congress addressed Tech policy they intentionally left the ‘Net completely alone. They authorized no one to regulate the Web in any way. So of course the Obama Administration has been in full-on regulatory Internet assault mode. And they are successfully killing it.

    And this last week was yet another terrible one.

    After $1 trillion in private investment, and in less than ten years, 95% of Americans have broadband Internet access. This is an extraordinary - nigh unprecedented - private sector success.

    Yet somehow, for the third year in a row, the Obama Administration has asserted that U.S. broadband deployment is not happening in “a reasonable or timely fashion.”

    So they propose a dramatically increased government role. The same government that in 1934 charged itself with making universal telephone connectivity happen (which is MUCH cheaper than Internet access). And started taxing us to do it. Seventy-eight years later, the government’s best year was 93% delivery.

    Spectrum is the “airwaves” used for all things wireless - for instance, for your smartphone. The government controls who gets spectrum and how - so of course there is a drastic shortage.

    And when spectrum does become available, the government jams the buyers with all sorts of illegal regulations - to which they must adhere, else the Leviathan will not grant them permission to purchase.

    Cell phone company Verizon was just in the market - and the Obama Administration really laid into them - undermining both the free market and their free speech.

    (T)he Administration approved Verizon’s wireless spectrum purchase from a cable company consortium - but, again, only with a whole host of illegal attending “conditions.” That, amongst other things, “restrict...joint marketing agreements.”

    So not only are these “conditions” unlawfully imposed - some of them eviscerate the First Amendment. This Administration is telling these companies what they can and cannot say...

    Every president has been approached about taxing sales on the internet, nothing new.

    Really it is not for us in the rural areas, Bush tried to get broadband in the rural areas, but when At&T bought this area that I live in they have not made broadband accessable to us in rural areas.

    Of course not. Obama-Bots are only programmed to spew tired Democrat Talking Points. They cannot deviate from the script. Their programming will not allow it.
