If Politicians ran the Internet

1. There would be minimum bandwidth allocations for minority use.

2. Black Internet users would have higher bandwidth caps to make up for past white people's rapacious usage.

3. All offensive speech would be banned.

4. Every web page has to have a non-smoking, non-sexist, non-gender, equal opportunity, decals.

5. Cigarette, Pharmaceutical and Oil companies will be banned from operating web sites.

6. NASCAR web sites will be put on probation.

7. All ISP's must have minority ownership and purchasing set asides.

8. All bits must be recycled!

It sounds like you pulled this out of your ass.

good points, but i think the internet's tubes would permanently clog up (obviously nothing would get done with politicians running the intarnetz) leading to a new underground internet. probably would be a direct result from most of those points.

Well, I agree with 1 and 2, but 3 is a stretch because the 1st amendment would come into play.

4 and 5 are completely wrong because a large quantity of politicians (esp NeoCons) are sponsored by those corporations, and almost all politicians are racist/homophobic (to some extent).

It's just the way of the world (horribly enough)!

I think it was, as usual, was passed down through the family.
