It’s always amazing how language is used to make dreadful legislation sound good. No, this time I’m not talking about the PATRIOT Act, even though it makes me grind my teeth that opponents of crappy and unconstitutional legislation are unpatriotic. No, I’m thinking of John McCain’s “Internet Freedom Act.” You know, the one that makes sure corporations are free to decide who gets to use the Internet.
This little video does a pretty good job of saying why that’s not good for business, not to mention for people in general.
Oh, and by the way – McCain has received over $800,000 from telecom companies. You think that kind of support comes free?
