From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I continue to be appauled at the attempts of big government to tax everything. To tax the internet would be preposterous and would in essence be a form of censureship for those could no longer afford to use their computers. Free speech is important in this country. The internet can be used as a wonderful educational tool. To further tax cell phones beyond the existing taxes is ridiculous. It is not the fault of the American people that Congress has spent our grandchildren into bankruptcy before they are even born. Congress no longer represents its people, and it's time for the people to put their votes where they will count. We need Congress to listen to the people. It is essential for the FTC to be very careful about proceeding and interferring with First Amendment rights. Thanks for listening!
