A Tangled Web the Governement is Weaving

(Image by Lisa Benson)

While ISIS and Obama's lackluster response has been seizing the headlines, another story may soon be on the front pages tomorrow:  The implementation of "Obamacare for the Internet."

This of course, depends on how the five commissioners of the FCC will vote, but the Vegas odds are that the three Democrats will outvote the two Republicans and impose a 332-page set of regulations upon web users.

In other words:  Get ready for a government takeover of the internet.

I attached this cartoon in an e-mail response to friends, with my own caption:  "Ahead dial-up speed.  Engage!"
 
To be honest, my tech savviness equals the square root of jack.  So I don't know how this will affect us small-scale users.

But if the IRS "phony scandal" has taught me anything, it's to be wary of "unbiased government oversight." 

Especially, since this particular blog of mine isn't what you'd call "leftist-friendly."
