Now He Wants the Internet . . .

I wish this story was a hoax. But it isn't.

Yes, it seems Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) is pushing a bill to give President Obama the right to take over the internet in an "emergency." Very, very interesting, as Arte Johnson would say.

The Democrats are likely (in fact, I think they're laying the foundation now) to go after broadcasters. Add to that this thing with the Internet, plus Obama's wish for a national "day of service," which reminds me of the old Soviet subbotnik. My, my, my. It seems we are indeed in for challenging times in this country.

This could be another thing that we look back on in 30-40 years and say:

Damn. We should have done something sooner.

I agree wholeheartedly. But would you mind not using expletives?
