Elmo and FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski discuss Internet Broadband Access
Elmo must have a hot line to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski. Elmo needs help with his (slow) dial-up Internet access. It’s not that Elmo does not have Internet access. It’s that Elmo’s existing dial-up Internet access is too slow for his personal liking. So, he’s looking to the FCC for some help.
Elmo needs a speed “upgrade”. But does not have the money, or chooses not to allocate the money from his budget, to buy Broadband access for himself. Can the FCC help me out, says Elmo? Help me, please?
Elmo, Julius, and FCC Commissioner Michael J. Copps are going to team up. Looks like they want to make Broadband Internet Access a universal “entitlement” – for everyone – and declare it a “Civil Right”. Civil Right?
Civil rights are the rights or privileges of American citizens. Civil rights include freedom of speech, press, assembly, the right to vote, freedom from involuntary servitude and the right to equality in public areas. Whenever those rights of an individual are discriminated against, such as denied or interfered with, statutes have been enacted which then grant the individual the right to take legal action in order to protect one’s civil rights.

Barack Obama was right, the civil rights movement of the 1960’s did not go far enough. Obama wanted “economic equality” as a civil right (transfer of wealth; “spread the wealth around”, according to Obama to Joe the Plumber.)
According to the FCC Commissioner, “…the need to chart a path to the realization of that civil right [Broadband Internet Access fir everyone] is why we are here today…”
Broadband Internet Access a “civil right” declared so by the FCC. I suppose there is no limit of what you can promise using other people’s money and then take the credit for providing it. Beautiful.
