it is a sad day when federal welfare is portrayed as "winning"

are we all welfare recipients now? come on people. this is absurd. we are all broke and the fed is "granting" us some of our money back (well not us, some for profit internet co in our state). please. this, as with all other welfare, will not last, and only deepens the viability cavern.

how completely pathetic. vtel etc can buy their own friggin internet lines. they will certainly be charging all of their customers for it's use.

It's wonderful to know we'll have wireless mobile service in the state forest while the bridge is still closed and the streetlights are out. Thanks senialator for life leahy and pResident obambi! At least Vtel is a decent outfit.
