    is what we have to worry about. #1 is a moot issue. The time to appeal has passed. Law of the case now.

      May be moot.  But I think the answer to this question is important to understand where people are coming from.  When I posed my original question, I did not mean it from a legal perspective.  I was more interested in whether people beleived that the Internet should be subject to the same regulations as other media.  The answer to that question will definitely drive what regulatins they feel are fair.

        But there's something wierd here. The commission approved the internet exemption 4-2 (1 dem, 3 gop) but deadlocked on appealing the judge's order overturning that very exemption. I have to look up to see which Dem changed tune.

          any one who can make sense out of the political activities in this or any country, I take my hat off to you.

          The most common thought I encounter is  "What are they thinking now?  Are they thinking at all?  How much is this boondoggle going to cost me?"  Seems to be a most pervasive interpretation of politics.

          Boy how I wish we had one house of Demons and one of Repugs!  When they fight each other they inflict less harm upon the rest of us.
