Afterall, high-speed internet is an American Right, is it not, comrades? At least, this is what many were led to believe during last year’s election campaign.
Now that Candidate Obama has become President Obama, it seems some greedy corporations are rejecting the President’s offer of $4.7 billion in stimulus money to give every American home high-speed internet.
Perhaps it is, as the Seattle Times says, because companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast don’t need a government handout to expand their networks.
Or, perhaps, it is because the companies don’t wish to be pilloried and demonized for having taken government money, like the auto companies and the banks.
Or, perhaps, it is because they don’t like the strings (read rope) that are attached with having taken government money.
In any case, comrades, we expect to see the White House, its union allies at the CWA and IBEW, as well as the main stream media to begin an attack on these greedy capitalistic companies and their evil executives for their concerted denial of a basic American Right…high speed internet in every home.
Just remember: When we predict it, they will do it, because the Left is so very predictable.
