That's above his pay grade. Actually, cashier at the local Jiffy Mart is above his pay grade, but you'll have that sometimes.

The dumb, big-eared sonofabitch doesn't even realize that the government has a SPENDING PROBLEM, he thinks we're in great shape, and he wants to waste trillions more "fighting" a phantom that doesn't exist. Know what I think???

A factcheck of Marco Rubio's rebuttal of the SOTUAS last night:

That statement may reflect the math behind recent debt, but it doesn't get directly to the cause the worst recession since the Depression and its aftereffects. The deficit is not only caused by spending, but by reduced tax revenues. And during the recession, revenues from both individual and corporate taxes fell markedly.

The steep increases in debt and the measures that should be taken to ease the burden are central to the debate in Washington. But there is no serious move afoot to amend the Constitution to prohibit deficit spending.

The ability to take on debt has been used by governments worldwide and through U.S. history to shelter people from the ravages of a down economy, wage war and achieve many other ends. An effort to amend the Constitution for any purpose faces daunting odds; this would be no exception. Most state constitutions demand a balanced budget, but states lack some big obligations of the federal government, including national defense. And Washington's ability to go deeper into debt provides states with at least a minimal safety net in times of high unemployment.

Who owns WiFi ?
The PUBLIC owns the airwaves and the FCC grants licenses to broadcasters with the understanding they will serve the public interest.

Free WiFi exists in almost every major city in the U.S.. This Wiki article will explain how it this paid for. It also gives a list of WiFi hot spots, globally.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Municipal_wirele...

"It is the purpose of the First Amendment to preserve an uninhibited marketplace of ideas in which truth will ultimately prevail, rather than to countenance monopolization of that market, whether it be by the Government itself or a private licensee. It is the right of the public to receive suitable access to social, political, esthetic, moral, and other ideas and experiences which is crucial here. That right may not constitutionally be abridged either by Congress or by the FCC."
--U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark 1969 case of Red Lion v. FCC
