And An Xbox360 In Every Living Room…

I wasn’t aware that broadband access was a ‘right’ that the government needed to address:

America lags behind other countries that have universal broadband deployment, Pelosi said; but the Democrats’ agenda “guarantees” that every American will have affordable access to broadband within five years.
“We also believe that the nationwide deployment of high speed, always-on broadband and Internet and mobile communications will fuel the development of millions of new jobs in the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Mr. President, we’ve got a broad…band gap with the commies!”

    Well, I’ve been to one world fair, a picnic, and a rodeo, and that’s the stupidest thing I ever heard come over internet.

    “affordable” = “subsidized by my fucking tax dollars”
    Be afraid.

    It’s of a piece – tax dollars to provide it, laws about who can say what and how while using it… When did we move from George Washington to Aunt Bea as a government role model? (And in that case, where’s my pie, dagnabit?)

    Everytime they guarantee soemthing to one gerneation, the bill always comes due in the next. Want to bet on how fast investment dollars will flow out of telecom with that kind of governmetn interference? And how bad and outmoded it will be in about 15 years’ time?
