It is our responsibility to light a fire under the rear ends of our politicians and if we don’t step up to the plate now, we will live to regret our inaction. This is why we are proposing the Fair Access Amendment.
No politician who does not support it should get another vote. We ask for the support of our like minded friends who care about what is happening to our nation. If our politicians fail to support and pass the Fair Access Amendment then the people will have no choice but to secede one State at a time and form a nation of Free States.
Fair Access Constitutional Amendment
Section One: All members of the Senate shall serve from an office within the State they were elected to. The number of Senators will change from 2 per State to 9 per State as follows. There will be tree slates of three Senators. Each slate of Senators will serve for the Constitutionally authorized 6 years as they do now. Each slate shall be comprised of the 3 highest vote getters, regardless of political party affiliation or lack thereof. Each voter can choose their 3 favorite candidates so that voters can impact the Senate every two years.
There shall not be term limits as the voters have the right to decide who comes and who goes. It will be easy for voters to meet at the State level with their Senators. It will be difficult for Lobbyists to cover the 150 Senate Slates in all 50 States so the balance of influence will transfer from the lobbyists to the people.
Section Two: All members of the House of Representatives shall continue to serve the same two-year periods they now serve. However, they shall serve in slates of 3 and the number of slates shall be one slate per 300,000 in population or portion thereof. Example, if a States has 300,001 in population, then the State shall have 2 slates. Population shall be composed of lawful
United States Eyes Broader and More Affordable Internet Access
The United States government is reinforcing its plans to make high-speed Internet access more available and affordable to every citizen of the country. A 7 billion economic stimulus bill the federal government has signed for 2009 would include a .2 billion budget to fund the national broadband initiative. The Federal Communications Commission, the agency tasked to take responsibility in spearheading the project, is all set to implement efforts for the project.
US President elect Barrack Obama has made the broadband nationalization project part of his priorities, as promised during the presidential campaign of 2008. This way, the government is hoping Internet access would be made more possible, more affordable, and more convenient even across underserved areas in the country. Affordable and reliable high-speed Internet seems to be part of a more important economic platform the Obama administration is gearing for.
The US government looks at high-speed Internet access as a successful and potential driver of the country’s economic growth in the short- to long-term. When the US Congress assigned the FCC to develop a national broadband plan, it emphasized that the action is aimed at accelerating economic growth. It is hopeful and is certain that a more developed broadband Internet infrastructure in the US could help create more good-paying jobs, spur better and more useful innovations, and effectively connect small businesses to make them even more competitive and progressive.
A well-developed Internet facility across the nation is also seen as essential for improvement of educational opportunities, better delivery of healthcare, and further revamping of basic operations of fire fighters and police, who could rely on improved communications for better implementation and enforcement of overall public safety and orderliness. At the same time, cleaner energy at basically lower costs could also be made more possible.
US citizens are expected to get involved in the national broadband rolling out and development process. In the third to last quarter of 2009, FCC is set to host national discussions and forums to tackle the design of the national Internet access plan. Such talks would be open for the public participation through actual meetings in designated centers and even online.
The government is expecting the public to describe the broadband needs and requirements of their communities. They are also expected to air aspirations and hopes for the improvement and better implementation of the National Broadband plan. This way, the US government is helping itself make sure that no sector or communities in the country would be left behind prior to rolling out of effective broadband infrastructure.
For its part, FCC as a bureau is tasked of taking a pivotal role for the promotion of competition, innovation, investment, and job creation across the national wireless sector. The agency has set up its own specialized team to provide expertise and additional support for seizing the opportunity as the US aims to take the lead in global mobile communications. Throughout the year, and prior to actual launch and implementation of the project, FCC is set to conduct more preparatory initiatives to further set the stage for the national broadband effort.
It is expected that the US government would succeed in creating a more reliable and better online infrastructure. Soon, Internet access anywhere in the country would not be a problem anymore. It could only take several months.
The Invisible Government by John Pilger I wasn’t going to mention The Green Berets when I sat down to write this, until I read the other day that John Wayne was the most influential movie who ever lived. I a saw the Green Berets starring John Wayne on a Saturday night in 1968 in Montgomery Alabama. (I was down there to interview the then-infamous governor George Wallace). I had just come back from Vietnam, and I couldn’t believe how absurd this movie was. So I laughed out loud, and I laughed and laughed. And it wasn’t long before the atmosphere around me grew very cold. My companion, who had been a Freedom Rider in the South, said, “Let’s get the hell out of here and run like hell.” We were chased all the way back to our hotel, but I doubt if any of our pursuers were aware that John Wayne, their hero, had lied so he wouldn’t have to fight in World War II. And yet the phony role model of Wayne sent thousands of Americans to their deaths in Vietnam, with the notable exceptions of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Last year, in his acceptance of the Nobel Prize for Literature, the playwright Harold Pinter made an epoch speech. He asked why, and I quote him, “The systematic brutality, the widespread atrocities, the ruthless suppression of independent thought in Stalinist Russia were well know in the West, while American state crimes were merely superficially recorded, left alone, documented.” And yet across the world the extinction and suffering of countless human beings could … Video Rating: 4 / 5
