From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Dear FTC, I strongly object to this proposal. It is not the public's job to pay for media training. When do tha taxes stop? The well is running dry. A 5% tax on equipment to finance this program? What is the real goal and purpose of this program? I neither approve of nor wish for the government's continued meddling with our Constitutional liberties and freedoms. Rather than protecting and enhancing those liberties, programs seem to be stifling freedom and adding more and more financial burdens to an already failing American economy. As a citizen, I as you to stop meddling with our free speech and to cease and desist the abusive taxation to fund an unwanted and unnecessary political agenda. You are stewards of the nation, and it's your responsibility to protect American freedoms, not inhibit them. Regards, Timothy S. Morgan
