FCC or "The Muppets"

A puppet organization being manipulated by the same companies it's supposed to be governing is what we have now. The FCC is a spineless good for nothing waste of tax money put in place to make the taxpayers think that our best interest is being pursued. Don't you think that the problems Verizon is having which caused a State of Florida Attorney General to get involved should have been an FCC issue instead? It wasn't because the FCC called Verizon and said "Dad, I think this violates the law." and Verizon said "SHUT YOU LITTLE BRAT!!! Now go attack Vonage for E911 services"

Why is it that those who complain the most about how big business owns government are the first ones to think that government should be controlling more of our lives?

OMG YOU'RE RIGHT!!!!

I don't know what I was thinking. I guess I thought that when I have an emergency and pickup my phone to call 911 it's a little more important to have DIALTONE than to have to give my address to 911 because I'm the idiot who forgot to update my address online when I moved.

If the FCC was performing as intended they would have been all over Verizon for their short commings and dare I say it in front of neofast... BREAKING THE LAW. Instead they are still hastling Vonage about E911 because if a customer (ie. ME) moves it's up to me to go online and update my E911 address.

So... Controlling my life? NO. Enforcing the law? YES.
