How very alarming. Big Government might tell Small Government to not let Big Business own everything.
Republicans were swift to denounce the president on Wednesday, as he spoke in Cedar Falls, Iowa — a town that has created its own municipally-owned broadband Internet provider.
"In Tennessee we have a term to describe people like President Obama — tone-deaf,” Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) said in a statement.
“At a time when Americans think the biggest problem facing our nation today is big government, you would think he'd have gotten the message by now,” she added. “We don't need unelected bureaucrats like FCC [Federal Communications Commission] Chairman Tom Wheeler dictating to our states what they can and can't do with respect to protecting their limited taxpayer dollars and private enterprises.”
Bwak bwak bwak, that is one squawky dingaling duck, Marsha Blackburn ("down home" fail -- "tone deaf" is Tennessee slang? Well fuck mah cuzzin, maybe tiz! Jesus FUCK).
And what's this all about?
President Obama’s call for more cities and towns to create their own broadband Internet services to compete with private companies like Comcast is meeting stiff opposition from many Republicans.
As damn well it should. Contracts must be honored, & Comcast kept the receipts.
You know, it is just possible, just barely possible, that there may be minimal political costs in going up against the interests of fucking Comcast.
