OBAMANET SCAM

Can you believe it? Our free, unfettered Internet is back to the “good old days” of basic black phones with rates so high only the wealthy called long-distance, when Ma Bell was regulated as a public utility by the FCC under the Communications Act of 1934.

Welcome to President Obama’s idea of fairness for the U.S. Internet. The FCC, which was supposedly an “independent” agency before Chairman Tom Wheeler was bullied into accepting the plan announced by President Obama in November that had been cooked up in secret by White House aides. The Commission on February 26 ruled that the Internet will now be regulated as a public utility. The Section of the 1934 Act being applied to the Internet contains 1000 regulations, and the FCC ruling is more than 300 pages long. Even though we don’t yet know the details (the ruling is still under wraps as this is written), Chairman Wheeler promises to “forbear” certain regulations, only ruling on what is “reasonable” and “just” as decided by Administration officials. He does not have the authority to speak for the future, and something is in all those pages of regulations. Washington lobbyists and lawyers will have a feast.
