In Your Face America!

by Mark on September 13th, 2007

Absolutely Belligerent and Obnoxious!

You know what really is “arbitrary, capricious, unsupported by the substantial evidence and otherwise contrary to law?”

Verizon’s attempt to muddy the waters for all of us for the 700 MHz spectrum auction in January, that’s what…

No doubt a tactic to divert attention from an investigation into the Justice Department’s politically motivated and possibly Telco financed opposition to Net Neutrality.

Unfortunately, the more these companies try to confuse us all, the more obvious their contempt for the American consumer becomes. And, the more it begins to appear that what Save The Internet (an opinion shared by many) is saying may quite probably be true;

“The Justice Department filing parroted phone and cable industry arguments against Net Neutrality. It’s also part of an emerging pattern of collusion between the White House and those companies that control access to high-speed Internet service for more than 96 percent of residential users in America.”

Collusion between the White House and phone and cable companies? Naaaah… who’d believe that? Consumers Union and the Consumer Federation of America might!

Fortunately there is a consumer oriented organization who is willing to speak up and take action - Google, who says;

“It’s regrettable that Verizon has decided to use the court system to try to prevent consumers from having any choice of innovative services. Once again, it is American consumers who lose from these tactics.”

Karma, folks, karma… let’s make it happen that what these outfits are forcing on us becomes turned around and forced on them. Speak out against the monopolies! These are publicly traded companies!

Stand up to the politicians who support the fleecing of America, who support these companies, who might be accepting monetary rewards for inappropriate behavior from them.

Don’t believe this has anything to do with you making money online? Sit back, take no action and watch it happen. Of course by then it will be too late.

    Write to the FCC and leave your opinion if you agree with this article. I know I did. If we let Verizon and the rest of the large corporations get away with this it will only set a precedent for future cases. We need to stop this now. Email your FCC Comissioners - http://www.fcc.gov/contacts.html
